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.

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.

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.
