Meet Our Personal Trainers

Anna Aquino (pronounced AHHHH-nah)
Anna has been an ACE certified personal trainer for 14 years.  When not cooing over her dog, Oliver, or reading any number of the books that fill her house, she is here working as a trainer and spreading her love of fitness.  Exercise has been a passion of hers for quite a while, and as your trainer, she will be able to share her knowledge with you to help you experience the physical and emotional benefits of fitness.  She has some background in yoga and Pilates and likes to integrate ideas from these and other disciplines into creative workouts for clients.  Her goal is to educate and motivate and to help you define and achieve your fitness goals to feel better, stronger, and more able to live life the way you want to.
Trainer Tip: “If I had a nickel….”  How many times do you hear someone say that?  If I had a nickel for every time I see someone using incorrect form, I might be a rich woman.  But seriously, form is vitally important when working with weights.  Using proper form when weight training can help us get the most out of each exercise, while utilizing the correct muscles. When using incorrect form, you will increase your risk of injury and target the wrong muscles.  Paying attention to our form when moving through the exercise will help us create strong muscle contraction, while keeping the body aligned and protected.  Sometimes people find when they use correct form, they need to use much less weight and get even better results.  And who wouldn’t want that?  To sum up, proper form when exercising is the foundation to a successful workout.  Start right to finish well.
