Passion and power, that’s our trainer, Isabel! Born and born and raised in Guatemala City, Isabel can’t imagine a life without fitness in it! As a Crossfit Trainer for 8 years, she is motivated by how much the human body is capable of, not just physically but mentally as well. She strives to help her clients overcome many fears, barriers, and challenges by entirely replacing the “I can’t” with “I’ll learn and I’ll get there soon!” Her coaching style guides you on how to listen to your body as you find new ways to expand those limits.
Isabel has a wide range of experience including basic gymnastics, powerlifting, and HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training). Her Crossfit Training ranges from the adult competitive level to youth boot camps, so she has the knowledge and experience for all ages and fitness levels.
Finding the fulfillment in bringing your body to a new healthy level is part of Isabel’s own story here:
“I started off being overweight at a young age. At the time, I was not conscious of the damage this was causing to my body, and I simply ignored the fact that I needed a change in my life. I was too lazy to even try, convincing myself that I was fine; ignoring the insecurity my poor self-image was causing me. The downward spiral of terrible eating habits and impulses eventually caused a serious illness. I had no choice but to overhaul my diet, and in losing a lot of weight, I not only began to recover but saw a boost in my self-confidence. I was never an athletic person, but I did not want this great feeling to go away. I joined a gym where I would only follow a small circuit for 30 mins every day. It was a good start since the progress was consistent, but I wanted more. I joined Crossfit with my brother, and we both fell in love with it. My body gained strength and endurance and I loved how healthy I was feeling. I began to listen to my body in every training and competition so I could push myself to my limits, which were wider than I thought possible. Now, I can’t imagine a life without fitness in it. I get really excited when I’m able to share this passion and feeling of fulfillment with others. So whatever your goals are, I will be there to help you realize all that you are capable of!”
