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.com. I 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.
Ellie Work - PERSONAL TRAINER
I graduated from Fresno State with a bachelor’s in cognitive science and a minor in Japanese. A couple of years after graduating, I decided to pursue a career in fitness as I had experienced the positive impact that exercise had not only on my physical well-being, but on my mental health as well. I find a lot of fulfillment in taking part in the improvement of my clients’ health and fitness as a result of taking them through a customized workout routine. I am motivated by the desire to help clients move better and feel stronger in their day-to-day lives. I enjoy learning new things and I am constantly striving to improve my skills to better serve my clients. I am a certified personal trainer through NASM, as well as CPR/AED certified.
