Meet the Trainers
Hello my name is ‘Vlad’, I am originally from Ukraine. I am 21 years old and I have spent half my life living in America where I feel sport and fitness is one of key essentials to not only a healthy body, but a healthy mind. I believe that the world is full of opportunity with new daily challenges and dreams that we all strive to adapt to and overcome. I am a black belt in martial arts (3 years) and throughout high school, I have spent my years dedicating myself to sports such as football, wrestling and basketball where the weight room became second nature. I love coming to the gym for that mental escape and hustle. I hope with my training, confidence and motivation I can share my knowledge in order to help you reach a new potential. Expect to hustle! I am currently studying of Petroleum engineering while also working on my MBA degree. Looking forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals.
I am enthusiastic about sharing my passion for fitness through knowledge and correct exercise techniques with people of all fitness levels. I encourage clients with a positive attitude to promote healthy life styles and motivate clients to safely and effectively achieve their fitness goals and results they are striving for. My personal experience growing up as an athlete and seeing benefits of physical activity and exercise has inspired me to guide others. I strongly believe living a healthy lifestyle leads to benefits in all aspects of life. I have played competitive hockey for a number of years. I also enjoy playing soccer, boating, fishing, and working out. A few of my other hobbies include; bodybuilding, nutrition, yoga, hiking and exploring the great outdoors.
I am a junior here at UAF and I am studying child development and early childhood education. I have lived in Eagle River, Alaska most of my life and love being active, especially in the Alaskan summers. I love hiking, exploring and traveling. I have played soccer most of my life but I love other sports as well such as flag football, volleyball, and lacrosse. Being healthy and fit is very important to me and I want my clients to have the ability to lead the life they love. I know how rewarding it is to conquer a physical challenge and I am excited to help my clients work hard and achieve their fitness goals.
I am a sociable and easygoing individual with a devotion to overall health. Born and raised in Lake Arrowhead, California. I ventured out to Alaska to attend UAF and obtain a Bachelors degree in Biology. My passion for fitness was shaped by many years playing competitive sand and court volleyball. Along with many of my hobbies that include: running, hiking, yoga, Pilates, and snowboarding. My personal experience, as a former athlete has led me to believe a happy life is a healthy one. As a trainer I strive to promote this philosophy as well as ingrain that to achieve any goal requires dedication, diligence and above all time. I am ecstatic of having the opportunity to inspire and guide clients of all types to achieve their fitness goals.
A little about myself, I’ve always been an athlete dedicating my training to strength and explosion. I’ve also done a decent amount of stamina and physique work. I played junior college baseball, coached for the UAF volleyball team, and am currently the Alaska sand volleyball coed state champion along with my partner Jessica Hill. I’m a senior here at UAF majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry. Hope to see you all in the gym!
This is my first year attending UAF. I was born and raised in Southern California. I came to Alaska to broaden my horizon and to obtain a bachelor's degree in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. My passion for fitness developed in high school where I played varsity softball and was involved in other outdoor recreational activities. My free time consists of hiking, running, working out, and taking every opportunity to go on an adventure. As a personal trainer I strive to help clients achieve their fitness goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle through exercise. Both of which obtained with hard work, positive attitude, determination, motivation, and time. So my encouragement to you is: This is your moment to make yourself a priority and learn that whatever your health goal might be, with the right training and time, it is attainable!
Born and raised in Fairbanks, I have always been active within my community. I participated in many local sports and volunteer programs including 4-H, tennis, hockey, and soccer. My passion for assisting others to be physically and mentally fit was influenced by my late grandfather as he instilled confidence in me. Today I am diligently working towards a degree in Dietetics. My philosophy is to make exercise fun and challenging by devoting my time to clients needs and wants. Hard work leads to a great reward!
I try to inspire all my clients to achieve excellence. As a client, you will not only get access to advanced workout routines, inside fitness tips and training advice, but will also be challenged past your limits and motivated to reach your fitness goals. A complete transformation is possible, but it requires time, consistency, optimal routine and intensity. My goal is for every client to achieve a drastic transformation. I am a 24 year old Senior Engineering and Business student, bodybuilder, swimmer, snowboarder and high intensity interval trainer. My training strengths are Body sculpting, toning, and weight-loss. So if you want that toned slim look or a ripped lean body, come by the SRC!!!
I came to UAF from Montana in the summer of 2014. I am excited to share my passion for the outdoors and fitness with clients. Throughout high school, I was involved in cross country, track, and CrossFIt. These challenging sports enabled me to find new determination and get into great shape. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as downhill skiing and hiking. I want to help clients reach their fitness goals and enjoy the process. Anyone, even people who consider themselves non-athletic, can reap the rewards and benefits of being active. Trying new activities and improving form keeps fitness interesting and profitable. Come train with me and be amazed by your transformation and fun, new found pastime.
