LEIF HANSON - MANAGER

 

 

Fitness and music have always been my main passions.  I have lifted weights and played music since I was a young teenager.  I first attended college at Humboldt State University and received a Bachelor’s Degree in music with an emphasis in piano.  I then changed majors and decided to further pursue my other passion in fitness at San Jose State University, graduating with a Master’s Degree in exercise physiology.  As a part of my program there, I created the website Fit for Music, which focuses on preventative exercise strategies for musicians and can be found at Fitformusic.weebly.comI am a certified strength and conditioning specialist with the NSCA, CPR/AED certified, and a personal trainer here at Fitness for Life.  It is a great place to work and it is continuously rewarding to help clients reach their fitness goals, improve any muscular imbalances, and become healthy and pain free.  

MARY FINN - PERSONAL TRAINER

 Since early on in my life, it only made sense to pursue a career in fitness, as I I have been an athlete since I can remember. I was a collegiate track & field and cross country athlete, and am currently preparing for my first bodybuilding competition.  Since completing my Master’s degree in Exercise Science, I have been working as a personal trainer and absolutely love working with clients to help them reach fitness and personal goals! I am passionate about helping my clients become the best version of themselves.

I am currently in the Physical Therapy program at Fresno State, and emphasize proper posture and nutrition for all of my clients. My goal is to ensure a safe and effective program for all of my clients! 

EVELYN GARCIA - PERSONAL TRAINER

 I’ve always been infatuated with how the human body works. Learning how the body works and why its’ designed the way it is has always been a hobby of mine. So after completing my general education at Fresno City College I decided to pursue a degree in Kinesiology. Upon completing a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science Spring 2017, I had scoped out the many realms Kinesiology has to offer. After completing a personal training internship at Fresno State Recreational Center, I knew training others/becoming a coach would be my ultimate goal. Thanks to my previous mentors I’ve gained a great amount of experience in Yoga, Strength and Conditioning, TACFIT and Scott’s Sonnon’s Intu-Flow program. Ensuring a person is safe and healthy has always been a A priority of mine. Overall, I enjoy helping people of all fitness levels reach their full physical potential so that they can enjoy life in a more fulfilling way.
