Analisa F. Naldi

Since 2001, Analisa has been coaching on how to move safely, efficiently and with strength.  Her students include an array of competitive and recreational athletes, ranging in age and experience from youth, high school and collegiate, to fast-paced executives and silver sneakers.  Analisa brings a background that includes strength training, Kettlebell instruction (Strong First Certified), Olympic Weightlifting, sport specific training, youth program design, Physical Education, Balanced Body Pilates Reformer, and Vinyasa/Forrest Yoga.

She focuses her time and passion in educating her students on healthy, sustainable ways for them to move and fuel specific to their lifestyles. Her techniques for motivating and educating her students include realistic goal setting and implementation, workout homework and activities to compliment performance objectives.  This enables her students to fully engage in their progress, get educated, and empowered.

Her current personal fitness regimen is simple.  Practice. Lift. Swing. Get-Up. Push. Pull. Balance. Go Inverted.  If she can’t do it, she adds it to her regimen and learns how.  She’s game for anything active that challenges the body and mind, preferably one that will start with the sun rising and ending with her acquiring new skills and a level of respect for herself, her abilities, and those that participated with her. And regardless of the weather this farm-raised central California Italian girl is on a wake-board, surfboard or stand-up paddle board somewhere nearby.

Creating community through movement, education, and healthy habits is a fun side job, which she has the pleasure of doing as a local corporate wellness coach, a regular guest instructor at Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico, and as a Lululemon alumni-Ambassador.

Bart Goodell

Schedule a Free Consultation

Bart has taken part in over 50 seasons of organized, competitive sports—from Pop Warner Football to being a World Class Decathlete. Along the way there have been injuries, but he is still a very fit and active person at 53. His secret? Really good physical therapists and consistent training. More importantly, he now knows how to train without pain.

Bart mainly trains men over 45, because he knows how to work with tight or frozen shoulders, bulging discs, sore knees, achilles tendonitis, or tight hamstrings from sitting too much.

“I’ve dealt with just about everything myself and now help my clients become active and healthy again, or for the first time,” he said. He also works with woman and younger people, but only if they are interesting cases, people working to get passed an injury.

Bart’s a great trainer for the guy who’s been working at a desk for years, gotten soft and lost his mojo. “I’ll help him get it back. He’ll be doing pull-ups and one arm pushups, even if he’s never done them before.”

Beatrice Linares-Vincent

As a little girl, she was always running and jumping, trying to find a way to run faster and jump higher! When she sprinted in the 100m dash and 4×100 relay races as the anchor, she experienced 5 years of perfect joy competing in France. Precision, focus and, biomechanics were added to her original philosophy.

Beatrice played competitively; European handball for 20 years and tennis for 3 years. With her self-understanding of how the body works, she wanted to go even further. She received a certificate in Radiology (Reims-France). She was responsible for running the radiology unit in the ER department (Strasbourg-France): Speed, focus and, precision were even more useful.

In Paris she worked in a cardiology clinic where angiograms and pace maker implants were the daily challenge.

Beatrice came to the United States in December of 1990. Still interested in body mechanics, while raising her four boys, she decided to go back to school and learn about the body-mind-spirit connection, the power of touch and muscle response.

She earned professional certificates and became a massage therapist and an instructor at The Body Therapy Center (BTC) in Palo Alto.

Instruction – She taught Anatomy, Physical Mechanism of various sports, and injury assessment and treatment at BTC, Palo Alto.

She also studied Applied Kinesiology and regularly attends workshops to keep current on new trends. Beatrice is a spinning instructor certified by Mad Dogg Athletics, Inc. and has completed her personal training certification (NASM)

Beatrice’s client list has grown exponentially. Her expertise has brought her professional athletes from various disciplines: 49ers, Riverdance and Burn the Floor dancers, basketball players, marathon runners, and triathletes. She helped athletes perform better at different events such as: National USA Track and Field, East West Shrine Game. Not limiting herself to professionals, she loves to help high school sprinters raise their performance levels. She is fascinated by growing children and enjoys coaching them for proper posture to attain precision in movement, positive thinking and self- esteem, for achieving focus.

Two years ago, Beatrice opened her private practice. A delightful creative blend of massage, personal training, and life coaching to help people achieve their personal best.

Beatrice’s strength is to use a creative combination of training techniques that are directly applicable to her clients’ lifestyle, goals, performance, and well being.

Breanne Cauldwell
Personal Trainer

Schedule a Free Consultation

As a California native, Breanne found a passion for helping others through health and fitness.  As a graduate from Cal State Northridge with her degree in Kinesiology, Breanne quickly realized that she wanted to help people become their best selves.  She started her career in the Los Angeles area when she realized she would love to take her skills further and be able to help people all over the United States.  That is when she decided to spend the next 8 years working thought the country as a health and fitness coach.  In each location she learned more and more about what personal training means to her and to her clients.  Not only was it her job to help clients reach their goals but it was important that she did it in a way that created longevity for the client.

Breanne realized she wanted to get back to California as she was expecting her first child.  This opened up a whole new world for her as she discovered the ins and outs that the body experiences with pregnancy.  It helped her understand what a woman goes through and how she can assist them in coming back from this type of change to the body.  It also allowed me to help new moms in the process of not pressuring themselves while trying to get their best selves back.

During this time of motherhood, she also became a manager for Equinox.  Where she further developed her skills with not only a variety of clients but understanding how to help other trainers become great.  After 5 years with Equinox, she decided it was time to go on her own once again and she started to broaden her skill set to not only pre/post natal, but to injury prevention, post rehab conditioning , strength gains, and helping the inexperienced clients learn how to move their bodies.

Outside of work, Breanne likes to spend time with her daughter and dog.  She enjoys grilling, running, hiking, playing tennis, and relaxing with her friends and family.  She loves to continue to educate herself on how to best help her clients and become the best she can be.

Breanne looks to help her clients not only feel better and reach their goals but she wants to empower them with the right tools to become the best version of themselves they can be.   At the end of the day if Breanne can walk away knowing her clients were successful with one aspect of their training hour she knows she has reached one small goal that links to the clients end result.  And that is the best feeling to have.

Brian Fox

Brian has been a personal trainer since 2001 and an experienced bodyworker for the last 3 years.  He specializes in human movement to help clients move in the most safe and efficient ways they can.
Having played a wide range of sports throughout his life, ranging from   competitive waterskier and rugby player to his current focus as an avid rock climber, Brian uses what he’s learned from these sports in his training methods.

“Combining my experience and education makes it easier to coach people—to show them how and why we perform certain movements the way we do,” says Brian. “I can also show them the value of multiple modalities of my training, which include neuromuscular testing of muscles, gate and pelvis analysis and restoration, RockTape, and the use of fascial lines to get the body working more specifically to test results.”

“Each of my clients is one in a million,” Brian added.  “It’s fun for me to make an individual cocktail of breathing techniques, stretches, kettlebell movements and bodywork for each client; so that he or she can enjoy our sessions together while keeping their specific goals in front of them.“

Garrett Higashi

Garrett Higashi believes the character of a person will determine their success. Garrett has worked with a wide range of clients from the youth, the aspiring athlete, the CEO, parents, and seniors. The characteristic they all have in common is the ability to learn and to adapt. Garrett takes this in account when it comes to training his clients because we all come from different backgrounds and daily lifestyle activities. It’s just how we can incorporate a good healthy lifestyle, whether it is physically, mentally or spirituality. We all can learn to adapt to our situations.

Garrett graduated from San Jose State University obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Science. Growing up in the bay area playing competitive sports throughout college, Garrett was always taught about mental, physical, and spiritual preparation. They all must work in unison to achieve self satisfaction in your ability.

Outside of training, Garrett helps his brother coach an AAU basketball team. It’s just another way of showing respect to the people, who have coached, influenced, and developed my character. Hopefully, I can influence their character, so they can coach and carry on this legacy of teaching.

I am not your typical trainer or health professional. I am not a fitness fanatic. I don’t obsess, or feel like I ABSOLUTELY have to train. I don’t count my macros, obsess over calories, or eating carbs. I don’t compete in bodybuilding, or physique showcases, and I don’t abide by a workout program, or nutrition plan. What I mean to say, is that I am just like you.  And like you, everyday I am finding out more about myself and what works for me.

So as a health professional, my goal has always been, what are the practical ways for everyday people, like me, like you, to get the most out of our health and fitness that allows us to support the very things that we are most passionate about; the things that make life worth living.

I think of health and fitness on a larger scale, in that it has become a means to support my experience. If I can remain healthy, I can experience more, cultivate more relationships, spend more time with the people I care about, try more things, and take part in a variety of physical activities; like playing with my nieces and nephews, going on more challenging hikes, or just playing some recreational sports.

These are the things that are important to me, and after talking to and coaching many people, it seems that these things are important to you too.

My approach to health and fitness, may be different than what you are used to, or what you may be expecting, because it is a co active process. What I mean by that, is that my clients have just as much say as I do, in determining how the process will progress.

It has to be this way, because while I may have expertise when it comes to eating and exercise only YOU know the life YOU live; therefore, only you can develop what is going to work for you.

I offer guidance and recommendations, but ultimately you and I will work through a number of strategies and options that we feel may work out best for you taking into account your personal and professional life as well as the priorities you have set in place.  This is the only way I have seen it work.

And yes, this will take a some time, but time will pass by regardless of whether or not you choose to take action or if you choose not to, so if this is something you are ready to figure out, understand, and achieve there is no time like the present.

Megumi Masuda

Megumi, born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, came to California in 1996 to study Sports Medicine. As a college swimmer in Tokyo, Megumi had minimum assistance with her injuries or physical conditioning. Recognizing the advantage of having a trainer in order to maximize athletic performance, Megumi grew her interest the profession and decided to pursue further education in the United States.

While learning English, Megumi joined the Sports Medicine Program at Foothill College. Once her goal to become a National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) certified athletic trainer was accomplished, she enhanced her certification by completing a Masters of Art degree in Kinesiology at San Jose State University in 2001.

Megumi’s interests in exercise physiology grew as she became a National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

Having experience in traditional athletic training and strength/conditioning, taking the next step into personal training was a natural progression for Megumi. Her clients enjoy individually designed workout programs as they are based on functional biomechanics and the clients’ needs. It is a big reward for her when she hears from her clients about how their training sessions have made a difference in their lives. Her training philosophy is “Consistency is the key to success”.

Megumi’s obsessive “hobby” is Triathlon. She has been competing in national and international level races including USAT Age-Group National Championship, ITU Short-Course World Championship, and Ironman 70.3 World Championship. Triathlon is not just training and competing for her. She enjoys meeting with people from different background and always learning something new through the sport. To integrate her passion into the profession, Megumi has become a certified USA Triathlon Level 1 coach.
