Hello, my name is Amelia Guevara and I’m a certified personal trainer through NCSF. I also teach Pop Pilates®. Exercising was not always a passion of mine. I grew up fat (yes, fat, I promise it’s not a scary word) my entire life, and I didn’t know where to begin when it came to fitness until high school. This is when I met someone who taught me to love working out. Of course, I had my ups and downs the years to come, but those memories of how good activity and exercise made me feel, stuck with me. That’s when I started doing it for my own well-being, and that’s what I’d like to remind you to do as well when you hire me as your trainer.
