Alla is not a typical Fitness Studio owner – she spent most of her adult life pursuing a career in Finance and Marketing at various Fortune 500 companies. She is not a certified Personal Trainer and doesn’t want to be. She prefers to surround herself with the best talent possible to help her accomplish her mission: Help women achieve health and fitness at any age through a well-defined, structured and consistent approach, which guarantees long-lasting results. In today’s day and age women are so busy taking care of others that they don’t have the time or energy to take care of themselves. And with age, the lack of physical exercise combined with inadequate diets and slowing metabolisms are the biggest culprits leading to excess weight and declining health for many women. The mission of the studio is to help and support women in getting them out of the rut and back on the path to health. Alla is the backbone of the Studio Operations and she loves it! It turns out that there are quite a lot of things that need to be done effectively and efficiently to ensure that clients have the best possible service and experience. When not working on ways to improve the studio and foster its community, you can find Alla on the floor, working out along with the clients, because she is also one of them!
Jessica is a certified Personal Trainer via ASFA (American Sports and Fitness Association), ACE (American Council on Exercise), and USFS (United States Figure Skating - Learn to Skate Program). In addition to personal training, Jessica is certified in yoga and specializes in teaching kids yoga, beginning and intermediate yoga and ice skating.
After suffering the loss of her mother in her early 30s, Jessica coped with the help of anti-depressants, which led her to gain almost 50 lbs. She turned her life around by joining the local gym and by embarking on healthy eating. She was so empowered by her own transformation, that she decided to dedicate her professional career to helping others to get fit and healthy as well.
Jessica began to teach group fitness classes as well as personal training at various gyms in NJ. She has been a trainer with our studio for over 3 years and loves helping our clients to achieve their own transformations. When not at the studio, you may find Jessica training clients at the ice skating rink, coaching and taking her son to his team hockey games, or whipping up some healthy meals for her family.
