In addition to taking competitors to the stage through strength and nutritional coaching, he also has numerous lifestyle clients.

Anthony Pizano

Certified Personal Trainer (NCSF & NESTA), TRX CERTIFIED, Sports Nutrition Specialist (NESTA), Sports Supplementation Specialist (NZU)

Being an athlete my whole life, stepping into the fitness industry seemed like the perfect fit. Transitioning from red shirting for the SDSU basketball team in 2006, I needed a new challenge and found a new passion in weight lifting. I took it a step further and became a certified personal trainer beginning at 24 Hour Fitness and doing beach bootcamps. I've been fortunate to take it a step further and compete at the national level in the NPC as a men's physique competitor.

My new found passion and knowledge for fitness is something that I enjoy sharing with others around me allowing them to grow and develop within their own fitness journey. I wouldn't trade my job for the world as it's not a job, it's just "another day in paradise" as I like to tell people.

"When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful."

Kailey Rowan

B.S. Kinesiology, CSCS, Certified Speed & Agility Trainer, TRX Certified, CPR/AED Certfied

Kailey has been an athlete her whole life. She always knew she would have a career in sports and fitness. After playing two years of college basketball at Sonoma State University she decided to put her focus into the fitness industry. During her years as a basketball athlete she fell in love with the process of preparing her body for competition. The weight room became her second home and speed and agility became her form of conditioning. She became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist upon graduating college, and a year later she moved to San Diego, CA to further her training skills and expand her business.

Kailey is energetically passionate about her career as a fitness professional. She strives each and every day to stay educated and continues to learn anything that will help her clientele reach their fitness goals. She lives the life she preaches on a daily basis, staying focused on her personal fitness goals; fitness is her lifestyle. Kailey is currently owner of KRFIT, the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the San Diego City College Women’s Basketball team, and will be completing her Masters in Coaching and Athletic Administration in 2016.

Daniel Ishii

ACPT and strength specialist

Being an athlete for the greater part of my life (soccer, basketball, football, wrestling, and track & field) stepping into the fitness industry seemed like the right fit. After my athletic career came to an end, I looked to find ways to affect everyone from high school athletes to people who are trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle. First I started coaching football, then I looked to become certified as a trainer and that's when the real fun began. I am now going into my third year as a professional trainer and my second year as a strength coach where I've had the pleasure of working with and coaching athletes who have placed in open competition as powerlifters on eight separate occasions; and on a personal level I've been lucky enough to compete at the national championship for powerlifting twice, I have become internationally qualified for competition, and I have collected a few medals in my young career as a powerlifter. What I've learned is that motivation is hard to come by, so find what motivates you and use it everyday.

Michael Laird

Personal training is my dream job, for the past three years I have been employed as a full time personal trainer, however I am still yet to work a day in my life. I moved to California from Australia this past year as I knew this is where I want to further my fitness career, and I have my eyes set on helping as many people as possible. I love working out and eating, as well as helping others achieve a happier, more confident life through fitness.

I grew up playing competitive basketball, which eventually brought me to California to play in college, this is when I knew that this is the place for me and returned as soon as possible. I gave basketball up two years ago and decided to get serious about my weight training and am looking to compete at some point in 2016 in mens physique.

I can’t wait to help you achieve your fitness goals, and look forward to being a part of your journey.
