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.

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.
