We started strive in 2016 and since then myself and my team of coaches helped change and transform many individuals from weight loss, to mental health and a complete lifestyle change. I have been in fitness for over a dozen years and truly care about each individual that walks in the door. Who’s next?

My Long term goal is to change people and lead them into a healthier life. Short term goals is to have people break old habits, change their mind, and most importantly focus on themselves. #StriveStrong

I have lost over 45lbs & 10% body fat since 2012. I made a lifestyle change and have helped many others do the same. My passion for fitness will show you I’m not here just for giggles but to coach you on how to Strive 4 Fitness!

Outside of Strive I participate in runs, obstacle races, and any that is going to challenge me mentally and physically. I have also completed a 15 hour GoRuck challenge! #BeastMode

My name is Sheena for years I’ve tried to workout for years  I always started then I got bored I figured out going to the gym by myself wasn’t fun for me. I finally gave bootcamp a chance. And it kicked my ass.

I was at such a bad point in my life I gained all this weight my relationship was terrible I needed to start all over . So I did. I went in full force and I haven’t looked back I’ve been here a year in March. I finally found a passion. And then I got asked if I was to teach. I was so shocked . Me teach? I really didn’t think I had that in me. They saw something! This year has been so life changing.  I’m teaching PiyoX I wasn’t  sure at first now I love it cause I made it my own. I work on core strength and balancing, we need all this. I love it now I started kickboxing and PiyoX My favorite so far! Cardio I love when people tell me there sore the next day!! You need  to work the whole body. I want to go continue down this road learn as much I can bout the body and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I want to make people feel good about themselves don’t ever give up! The hope I found it here such a great group of people and there drive is amazing. So, I can give my son things I never had!!..the environment (now I do) so he can enjoy things better in life and go explore the world!


I strive to help clients achieve a balance lifestyle that encompasses both exercise and nutrition. I am an ACE Certified Trainer who specializes in Sports Conditioning, and pilates/dance formats.

Historically, I have always grown up being active. From the age of 3 I started in ballet and continued dancing for 22 years. Alongside dance I was also active in gymnastics, school sports, and Poms. During my college years I hit a bump in the road gained nearly 40lbs and I was sick all the time. I found my inner motivation and started exploring all types of exercise classes just to keep myself moving. Within 2 years I lost those 40lbs and have kept them off through a combination of healthy eating and consistent exercise over the last 10 years even through having a child. Seeing the impact I(we) are making in people’s lives. Every class and pt session offers me an opportunity to motivate and inspire members to be the best version of themselves and the best part of all of it is seeing the changes and positive growth over time and knowing that I helped impact that change is what keeps me coming back! Anyone can decide to make a lifestyle switch, it’s never too late to start. Let me help you bring out your very best version of you.

“CHANGE YOUR MINDSET and YOUR life will shift into a better place.” I specialize in weight loss, muscle toning and also muscle mass programming here at Strive 4 fitness.

My mission is to bring happiness, motivate and help others reach their goals. I have always been told to do what I love. And I believe I am doing just that. I strongly believe that in order to be a better person in life you must help others. It’s my way of giving back. I always felt us as human beings were put on this earth to help and give. This is how I like to do it. Seeing the change in others confidence wise and health wise. So when I leave this earth I know that I did right by others. And plus it’s my passion and I like to share that with others. So that is what I live by. Strive Strong!


Hi, everyone! I know a lot of you know me already, but consider this my formal welcome for those of you who don’t! My name is Rob Valdez and I’m BEYOND excited to be part of the Strive Family now!

If you haven’t seen me around yet, as of now, I mainly teach Bootcamps, HIIT, and Kickboxing classes. I have a formal background in traditional boxing and am a self diagnosed running freak. I started getting back into fitness 2 years ago after having hit my heaviest weight at around 230lbs. That was a pretty low point for me. It was a long journey but one that I wouldn’t trade for the world. Being a part of this community now, and hopefully helping someone find the freedom and happiness I’ve found, is more than I could ever ask for.

Hope to see you soon!


I have been active in fitness for many years, teaching indoor cycling since 2001 and yoga since 2017. My cycling certification is with Schwinn. I began doing yoga in 2005 during a particularly challenging time in my life and it was so therapeutic.

I obtained my yoga training with Judi Harvin at FocusOm, completing a 200 hour teacher training in 2017. The most important thing to me in fitness is proper form. No matter the exercise, proper form will create a strong foundation and minimize injury. This is what I teach. In cycling it starts with proper bike fit for each student. In yoga, my motto for teaching is ‘it’s not about the pose’, rather it is about the blending of mind, body, spirit and loving yourself. I love the challenge, variety and intensity of Strive and look forward to teaching here.


It’s been 3 years since I decided to walk in the door at Strive and it has been life changing. I finally found a place I can be comfortable and a place that keeps me engaged by offering a huge variety of workouts and continually evolving/changing it up.

I came in the door so unhappy at 39% body fat, overweight, and frustrated with all my yo-yo diets. I fell in love immediately with my Strive Fit Fam! The support and positive vibes at Strive made me embrace the fitness lifestyle. Personal training with Shawn Groll helped shape me physically and mentally. I am now 27% body fat, a certified NASM instructor and I work at Strive! Make that leap, try your first free class, and never look back. Strive changes lives everyday.
