As a Miami native, Alyssa is packed with sweet and sass. Her competitive spirit fueled her passion for being physically active. Known to be “the girl the boys wanted to beat” Alyssa was a tomboy at heart who always preferred sneakers and shorts to dresses and bows. With energy to burn, Alyssa always felt the need to compensate for her small stature and frame. In doing so, she traded in the violin to run competitively in high school and continued to compete at the University of Miami. After a traumatic injury, Alyssa put down her running shoes (for a bit) and harnessed her energy and passion of physical fitness to injury prevention and treatment. Completing her Bachelor’s degree in Athletic training at the University of Miami, she gained a new appreciation for the body’s ability to recover/heal and its capability for movement. A seeker of knowledge, Alyssa moved to New York to continue her education in the field of exercise physiology at Teachers College Columbia University. Here is where her love of fitness regained its fire and became a certified personal trainer. Fusing her athletic training background and love of strength and conditioning, her training style allows clients to become aware of their bodies, gain control of their movements, while increasing strength and mobility. A life enthusiast, adventure seeker, and an advocate of mindfulness, Alyssa wants to inspire her clients to live with grit & grace.
What Uplifts her? So many things! But if I can narrow it down to three it would be: A great book, a long meditation, and pictures of my niece and nephew!
Her guilty pleasure? I’m not alone in this but- Binge watching on Netflix until the pop-up “Continue watching…?” will appear (my couch potato game can be VERY strong). Very guilty pleasure: I will finish that bag of chips accompanied with salsa. Sorry I’m not sorry.
