My name is Alyssa Perez , NASM certified personal trainer, nurse and mom to two boys who I strive to become the absolute best version of myself for. I am very passionate about achieving wellness through exercise, movement, nutrition and stress reduction. I am so driven to help others which led me into the medical field 11 years ago. My interest in health and wellness was sparked after feeling frustrated within my nursing career during/after our recent pandemic. I began feeling very unfulfilled, helpless, and burnt out in my profession. This led me on a path of inner healing, research, re-education, learning and a huge shift in what I believed it meant to care for my body. I believe daily movement and exercise will not only change you physically, leaving you feeling confident in your skin, but more importantly mentally and emotionally. I began my own wellness journey three years ago by bringing more attention to the food I fuel my body with, intuitively eating more whole foods & bringing more intention to how I move my body. My own training in functional movement, strength, stability, speed and body awareness has inspired me to want to help and educate those of all ages on how to optimize their health and feel good while doing it. I believe in the power of community and I’m really looking forward to coming together to inspire, learn, grow, and feel our absolute best, together!
