Laura Machado

Laura’s educational background is based in media and communications, making her journey to strength training and fitness not immediately obvious. Although she always had an active lifestyle, Laura felt intimidated by the weight room. Once she was able to overcome feeling out of place, weightlifting became a game changer in her fitness journey and she has lost over 130 pounds in the last 5 years!

She is a long time vegan and excited about the opportunity to incorporate plant-based nutrition into her coaching. Her style is foremost fun and friendly, but her training is meant to encourage serious strength for overall health in body and mind. She values strength over aesthetics but with a focus on corrective functional movements and strength training. Laura strives to inspire her clients to find the strength and confidence to take on challenges, in training and in life.

Shireen Naroozi

From an early age, Shireen would follow to her mother’s jazz and modern dance classes. Although she grew up in a very active and healthy lifestyle, Shireen always struggled with her weight and self confidence. After she gained the notorious freshman 20, she decided to make a change and poured all her free time into researching evidence based weight management strategies that were fad-diet and pseudoscience free. It was during this time that Shireen learned about how empowering strength training can be and she also got back into dancing by delving into the world of swing dancing a.k.a. Lindy Hop!

After years of dance and the subsequent injuries that follow, Shireen realized the importance of conditioning and injury prevention for specific types of movement. She stresses deep core training as well as hip/pelvic and shoulder health.

Derek Wallace

Derek’s journey into personal training began 8 years ago. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Eastern Washington University in 2012. Under the guidance and supervision of his professors, he learned fitness testing, programming, and exercise technique. After graduation he worked for a private physical therapy clinic in 2013 in his hometown in Newport, Oregon. Derek also returned to his high school hobby of running.

In 2015, a foot injury motivated Derek to join the world of Crossfit. Not only did he fall in love with the technical movements and gains he made from the program, he enjoyed the sense of community. Derek got his level 1 and became a trainer soon after. He went on to assist in the development of the “New You” program at his local Crossfit gym. For three years, the “New You” program trained 60 clients, young and old to lose body fat, and gain strength to take back their lives. In 2017, Derek certified in the CrossFit self-defense program to aid his clients with fear management techniques. To further hone his skills in coaching, program design, and movement cues, Derek obtained his Crossfit level 2 certification in 2018.

Today, Derek continues his path of personal training by becoming a certified personal trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He hopes to reach out to new clients and help them excel with whatever goals they may have and build some good connections along the way!
