Alyssa’s coaching philosophy is based on the belief that life should be approached as a constant experiment. Through trial and error, she is able to create the best plan suited for clients’ lifestyles, needs, and goals. Alyssa combines physical, mental, and nervous system analytics (through the Z-health training system), to help guide clients along their individual journeys in a way that adds meaning to their lives.
Alyssa was born and raised in Honolulu, HI and moved to California to fulfill the dream of playing collegiate volleyball at California State University East Bay, where she majored in Kinesiology (with an emphasis on exercise and nutrition). Her passion for competing led her to train for four figure competitions in 2010. Through this journey of physical change, Alyssa was exposed to the repercussions of extreme dieting and training. Her journey through metabolic issues has driven her to educate women about these dangers and the effect it can have on the female body. She also learned the importance of practicing forms of happiness and self acceptance in order to achieve long term fulfillment, irregardless of your shape.
Alyssa lives and trains clients in the Bay Area, and is professionally certified in several fields of fitness and wellness, including Functional Range Conditioning (FRC), Precision Nutrition, Pre-Post Natal instruction, StrongFirst and the Z-health training system. She is also a USAW Olympic Weight Lifting Level 1 coach.
