Although I was a high level
At the age of 16, I finally noticed that I was built differently than the other athletes & considered how much better

athlete in high school I was also over weight as a teenager. of an athlete I could be if I were in better shape aka lost weight & became stronger.

Thus, I hired my first Personal Trainer at the age of 16 and continued to work with her throughout my collegiate career. Working with a trainer elevated my sports performance, improved my quality of life and elevated my self- confidence as an adolescent & young adult. Working with a trainer changed my life & inspired me to become a trainer so I could change the lives of others just as my trainer did for me.

Over the last 8 years I have continually immerse myself in various fields of competitive sports so that I may not only learn different techniques that I could apply to my clients, but to challenge myself both mentally and physically.

I believe what makes a great coach is someone who not only loves what they teach, but fully understands what their clients will go through from start to finish in order for them to reach their fullest potential. By actively competing in the sports I love myself (bodybuilding & powerlifting) , and furthering my education, I have created many skills to help further my clients goals.

I also really enjoy getting down and dirty and pushing myself and leading others in OCR events, Endurance events (including 12-36 hour events) Ragnar Team Trail Running & Go-Ruck.

I offer 1-on-1 & 2-on-1 training. I specialize in physique transformation and strength training. Regardless of whether that’s to step on a bodybuilding stage, compete at a Powerlifting meet, create the body you’ve always wanted, or to become a healthier and happier version of yourself, I can help.

ASA Barnes

Trainer/Powerlifting Coach

I first started competing at the age of 9. A local

AAU meet at Encanto Park in downtown

Phoenix. As youth, we were only allowed to do

Olympic lifts. That was 1973.

And so it began.

Fast forward a few decades and here we are. Still

competing. Still enjoying that thrill of the

platform. The goals are still the same. Be the

best I can be.

These days, I share my learned knowledge in strength and conditioning and

powerlifting. Through my online coaching or one on one, I share everything I’ve

learned with you. Decades of studying, reading and application at your fingertips.

Visit with me, and together we can devise a plan of attack to help you reach new

levels in your strength and conditioning goals.

At the age of 18 I hired my first coach/trainer and my life was changed forever. I went from being overweight, unhealthy, chronically stressed and lacking confidence to feeling like I was unstoppable. I fell in love with health and fitness through my own journey and knew I wanted to help others feel the same.

I have been coaching for almost 4 years now and have helped hundreds of women transform physically and mentally. If you are looking to get stronger, gain confidence, feel sexy and have a healthier relationship with food I’d love to help. I currently offer 1:1 or small group sessions.

Fran Poloni

Special Strong

Special Strong provides science-based adaptive fitness and inclusive programs for children, adolescents, and adults with mental, physical and cognitive challenges. Our mission is to unlock the strength and confidence within the mind, body, and spirit of every individual impacted by mental, physical, and cognitive challenges in order to live a more independent and abundant life. Our certified personal trainers receive specialized training through Strong Education to work 1 on 1 or in group settings with the special needs population and other disabilities.

Fran and his team utilize their certifications, background in caregiving, and passion to serve to improve the lives of the individuals they train through Special Strong. Utilizing the CBSE training model, they focus heavily on functional training to improve core strength, balance, and flexibility. They implement movements during training that cross the midline and are performed from top to bottom to integrate brain stimulation for myelination, causing decreased reaction times for stimuli and increased neural transmissions. Special Strong creates customized training programs to meet the needs of each individual right where they are at to help them to unlock the STRONG within.

 Creator and owner of Smithpro Fitness, Mike Smith, started the company in 1986. It was his love and passion for bodybuilding that sparked the idea. He wanted a way to help others transform their bodies and help them to achieve a healthier lifestyle. At an early age Mike was always involved in sports. At the age of 13, his father bought him his first set of weights which sparked an interest in strength training. From there, at the age of 16, Mike joined Nautilus Gym, where he learned training theories by founder Arthur Jones.

Because of his experiences with Arthur, it lead Mike to meet Mike Mentzer, his mentor at age 22. Mentzer taught Mike productive exercise science, and the true meaning of logic and reason in training. In 2011, Mike and his wife moved to Los Angeles to pursue his ongoing quest to gain more experience and knowledge. Upon his arrival, he met some of the top dance agencies. From there he started to train dancers for tours for Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Beiber, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Pink; as well as Television (The Super Bowl, The Voice, X Factor, America’s Got Talent) and awards shows (Grammy’s, Emmy’s, The Oscars, Mtv Music Video Awards).

Mike has been influenced by some of the top bodybuilders, but has infused his own style to make faster and lasting results for everyone. Mike likes to call his training style “A to Z”, which means whatever your fitness goals are he can help! Whether it be strength training, bodybuilding, toning, weight loss, or functional fitness, Mike has the tools to help you reach your goals!

My name is Priscilla Estrada also known as Coach p,

I am a mother of two kids. I have been a personal trainer since 2020. I originally worked for Banner Health but after 6 1⁄2 years I decided to purse my career in Fitness.

I was athletic in school but after I had my kids, I never once did any type of physical exercises. Not until 2018. I didn’t know what to do nor how to work out. I did what I knew, and that was running. I had no given knowledge on weightlifting or any sense of how to use a weight.

I received my certification in Personal Training in 2019 and continued my journey ever sense. I am a bodybuilder competitor. I competed in Dennis James 2022 Women’s physique for the very first time. I won 1st in the novice class and 2nd in the open class c. It was the experience of a lifetime. That experience made me fall more in love with Fitness.

I want to help those looking to grow in every way I can. Whether it’s teaching about nutrition. Demonstrating how to work a muscle group. Helping mothers or expecting mothers to get strong. As well as being a guide for those looking to expand further in competition.

I have trained several women, men, teenagers and even coached a youth tackle football team. Training clients from Avondale, Glendale, Surprise, Laveen & even Buckeye. I am open to everyone.

Let me be the one to help you in your Health Journey

Rob Bumgarner IFBB Pro

From owning and operating my own gym to competing on the national stage I have done it all over the past 20 years. I grew up playing sports and racing bmx. I began working out around 16 yrs old to get better at sports. Bodybuilding did not become part of my life until I was 23. Since then I competed over 20 times including winning Professional Status in both the IFBB and the WBFF organizations. During the course of my training , I have spent time power lifting, Olympic lifting, cross-fitting, and endurance training. I am FRC certified as well and ready to assess and correct biomechanics issues thus eliminating pain and increasing ROM leading to healthier, happier joints.

I’m currently preparing for the 2024 IFBB pro season and hoping to step on the Olympia Stage some day. For training and consultations please message me at the following
