I am a fitness enthusiast turned fitness professional as a NASM certified personal coach. While I was never athletic as a child or teen, once I turned 18, I discovered the gym. This is when my love of fitness began. Throughout the years my workouts took on different forms depending on my stage of life.

In my 40’s I decided to make it official and started my career in fitness. Now that I’m 50, it is even more important to continue on this fitness journey I am on.

When I am not clients or teaching classes, I stay active by hiking, snowboarding and sometimes a nice run with either my husband or one of my 3 kids.

Cynthia Romero – Lifestyle and Body Building

They say age is just a number and here I am living proof that you can reach your fitness goals at any age!

Hi I’m Cynthia and I’ve had a passion for fitness ever since I first started my journey more than 10 years ago. I fell in love with getting stronger and realized I wanted to challenge myself by doing a bikini contest and the rest is history! From being a cardio bunny in the beginning to learning how to lift weights, I can proudly say I’ve done four bikini contests as a masters competitor in the past four years.

Throughout  that time, my passion for fitness grew and I knew I wanted to help others like me gain more confidence in the gym and invest in their future well being just like I did. You see, I understand what happens to your body as you age and am proof that getting older doesn’t mean you have to give up on your fitness goals or journey. I would love to inspire you and teach you how to not only gain more confidence but also create a strong and capable body that’ll help you no matter your age is or what stage you are at in life! I’m on a mission to age gracefully and would love to guide you on your own journey, too!

Grace Chen – Certified Personal Trainer

Hi! My name is Grace. I started my fitness journey in 2014 not having a clue what I was doing but I had the desire to change. I started at 90 lbs and always struggled to gain weight and build some glutes. After years of trial and error, I’m now 35 lbs up and couldn’t be happier. Fitness has changed my life not just physically but mentally as well. Nothing can replace the satisfaction of physically and mentally pushing yourself to do something challenging.

Because of my journey I strive to share my knowledge and experience with people who also have that same desire to change but struggle knowing what to do. I always tell my clients it’s not going to be easy but it’s going to be worth it. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. So drink you’re f*cking water.

Kalani Martinez – Nutrition Specialist and PT

Hi my name is Kalani and I am a personal trainer and nutrition specialist here in Chino Hills.

I have obtained my degree in 2021 with a bachelors degree of nursing. Therefore I have spent an extensive amount of time learning and educating myself about the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Therefore, I believe it is important to know the muscles and how to target them during our workouts. I also spent an extensive amount of time learning about the nutritional aspect of working out. It’s important to fuel your body with nutritious foods so that you are able to perform and improve your health overall.

A little bit about me: I’ve been an athlete all my life since I was a child. I’ve done all the sports, you name it and I probably have done it. Once high school ended I realized that I missed the opportunity to workout so I started to get personal training and it has changed my life. I want to be able to give that opportunity back to others and help them stay accountable and motivated.

Yes, I want my girls to look amazing and get the confidence that they deserve. But I also want to make sure you are healthy internally also. I’m here to help others and to give the knowledge I have received so that I am able to make a difference in someone else’s life.

Check out my Instagram page and feel free to direct message me if you have any questions! I look forward to meeting you.

Leslie Chavira – Personal Trainer in Chino Hills

Hey there! My name is Leslie Karelly, you can call me either. I want to share with you how I began my fitness journey back in 2015. We all have that one memorable event that inspired us to make changes and be better whether that is physically or emotionally. So here is mine. My, “Aha!” moment was during a summer trip to Las Vegas. While walking around the city, my thighs chafed soooo much causing my skin to bleed. I felt so embarrassed and it was at that moment I knew I had to do something for myself. Like many others starting out in the fitness world; I felt intimidated by the gym equipment and felt lost when it came to creating an exercise routine for myself. As a result of this insecurity, I would strictly do online workouts at home or, if I managed to go to the gym, I would do group workouts where I could easily hide in the back so no one could see me.
With time, determination, and whatever courage I was able to muster throughout my journey, I slowly gained confidence and began to see results. My passion and dedication for fitness grew and that is what has brought me here to be your personal trainer. As an engineer and a mom of 1, I will be the first to tell you that starting a fitness journey is difficult but I hope that with my encouragement and advice you can achieve anything you put your mind to. Together we can customize workouts, meals, and other goals you may have in living a healthier lifestyle.

Whether it’s your first time ever stepping inside the gym, you need help understanding equipment, or you just need a gym friend for extra motivation, I’m your girl!

Marissa Almendarez – Personal Trainer

Working out was my happy place before I decided to start my career in the fitness industry. In 2011 I started personal training to help others make it theirs too. After working with so many different people at different phases in their lives, it really drove home the fact that healthy living has a lot of competition. Often the thing we can’t seem to find is balance.

I really wanted to move beyond just a workout and diet plan and use my personal experience to show how to live healthy and make sustainable changes to accomplish goals. Fitness is for life as long as you keep moving. I hope to keep doing so and help as many people as I can along the way.

In 2015, I cofounded an event, Climb for a Cure, that helped raise funds for stage iv metastatic breast cancer. This event later turned into a nonprofit, Make Good Moves. From 2015-2021 we were able to raise $100,000 and donate that towards research, awareness for stage iv MBC and provide assistance for patients and their families.

In 2019 I helped open up Self Made West Covina and in 2021 I took over partial ownership of Self Made Chino Hills in 2021.
Within those two locations I help run a team of close to 100 trainers. I mentor them to step out of the big box gyms and become successful entrepreneurs.

In 2022, I became a mom and attribute my healthy pregnancy and recovery to the lifestyle I have created since 2011. As an entrepreneur my titles have changed but my mission has not, helping others through health and fitness. I currently still work with a limited personal training clientele and co-host my own podcast and social events through, The Mixtape Talks Podcast.

Melody Soto – Certified Personal Trainer

Certified Personal Trainer – Hey! I’m Melody Soto! And I’m a certified personal trainer, nutritionist, with background in athletic training. I help women understand their body, mind, & soul through fitness! Throughout my fitness journey I have realized that countless women including myself struggle with feeling confident and sexy in their own skin. This is very common whether it has to do with weight loss, gaining healthy muscle mass, or understanding nutrition. Before I became a personal trainer, I absolutely hated my body and everything about myself. I used to starve myself to fit in with friends and not eat in public because I was embarrassed someone would judge me. After years of neglecting my body I decided to make a change by focusing all my energy on bringing the life back into myself. I became a personal trainer to show women that the gym is a judgement free zone where you can work on yourself and become the most beautiful, authentic, and proud woman you’re meant to be.My approach to fitness is very different compared to others. I personally love to focus on your own nutritional balance and understanding your own body. I like to take the time to rebuild your metabolism as well as teaching you how to properly track/ calculate your foods. Everyone’s body is completely different and responds differently to certain foods, with this knowledge I help you understand your body type and what we can change to achieve your goals. I like to say that “ 80% of what we’re doing relies on nutrition, the other 20% is the fun part (working out)”. With the proper balance of food and workouts throughout the week you can overcome anything.I tailor all of my programs whether In person or online to YOUR specific goals. I include weight training, HIIT, combine with cardio to increase overall health and wellness. With my support, you will learn new technique, skills, and ways to improve your metabolism throughout this process. If you’re a full time student, mother, nurse or business owner I can teach you how to effectively manage your time and achieve those goals you’ve always wanted.If you’re ready to make the change, I’m here for you in every way shape and form! Let me help you embrace the new healthy version of yourself. I’m looking forward to meeting you and helping you through this new journey in life!

Come from a long history of athletics,
I discovered fitness as an outlet from a lifestyle that was not serving me.

My approach goes beyond elevating physiques; it’s about enhancing mental well-being and building self-confidence, helping clients thrive both in body and mind.
