NCSF & NESTA Certified Fitness Coach
Fitness and exercise became a large part of my life in my mid-20’s. Growing up, I was never the chubby kid; however, I never really understood what it meant to be in shape or to exercise with specific goals in mind. After several sales jobs and countless hours sitting at a desk, I started packing on fat in my early 20’s. I did what most people do — I fumbled my way around the big box gyms for two years with no progress or change in body composition. Fitness and exercise was redefined when I hired Coach Mariko as my first trainer. As I worked with her, I learned proper exercise progressions and techniques to help achieve my immediate weight loss goal. During the journey, I uncovered countless other fitness goals which continued to inspire and motivate me to take care of my body in the best possible manner.
I am excited to now be part of the amazing Fire Fitness team! Throw away every stereotype you can imagine about gyms and exercise. I am excited to show you why I fell in love with fitness.
NFPT Certified Fitness Coach
I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy life, and to feel strong and confident while doing it. I want individuals to realize a vibrancy and quality of life that few realize even exist. I try to use each moment as an opportunity to build my clients up, inspire them, and give them principles of fitness, nutrition and wellness and show them how to apply these things to their life. By combining all of these aspects with a fun, high-energy environment and workouts designed with your goals in mind, you will find yourself quickly becoming the happy, healthy person you’re meant to be. Bringing fitness and wellness to people and helping them to make positive changes in their life is something I am very passionate about, and I always strive to provide and deliver the means to make those changes to as many people as possible.
I am nationally certified through NFPT, have been in the industry for about 10 years now, and have worked with a wide variety of clients. I specialize in small group training, kickboxing/ bootcamps, and sound nutritional advice. When I’m not personally training, or coaching clients, you can usually either find me in a book, or outside on the trails or off running a Spartan Race.
Client Relationship Specialist
Callie grew up in Issaquah, Washington, and has lived in the PNW her whole life. She comes from a tight knit family, and from a young age she and her older sister Britta were instilled the values of teamwork and dedication, and were both involved in many different sports. Callie played volleyball, softball, some basketball, and soccer. She loved working out and getting better every day all throughout her childhood. During her early high school years, she decided to change her focus to softball, and because of the dedication and endless hours, blood, sweat & tears, she ended up receiving a scholarship to play college ball close to home at the University of Washington. Go Dawgs! She quickly learned what it meant to be a part of something bigger than herself. She played in three Women’s College World Series, and the life lessons learned during those short 5 years have definitely become a part of who she is today.
She ended up graduating in 2005 with a degree in Communications, and currently resides in Bellevue. Because of her fitness and athletics background, she is very excited to be a part of the Fire Fitness family. She has a competitive nature and always wants to succeed, and started to feel bored in the gym, going through the same motions but not seeing any results. She and her boyfriend started working out with Fire Fitness in 2012, and won the Thinner Winner competition in October, 2012. They put their winnings toward more training, and are both so grateful for that decision. They have transformed not only their bodies but their entire lives. They were definitely nervous to take that first step, but look back with no regrets as they continue on their journey to optimal health and well-being, knowing they have an amazing team of coaches right by their side helping them get better every day.
