I have taught both a 16 year-old client as well as a senior client in her 50's on how to do their first unassisted handstand. Age is not a limiting factor when working with me to reach your goals.
Using a mix of HIIT, strength, and full-body conditioning, our time together will tone, strengthen and energize your body for your day ahead. I'm a very energetic, happy and supportive coach who takes the time to work with you (and each of my clients) to find out how to best motivate you to reach your goals. Being a drill-sergeant-type-coach has never been my style of teaching. I do not yell to motivate you. I understand that a journey to better health and fitness has its ups-and-downs - my goal is to be your go-to person when you have questions, concerns and slumps, as well as the person you celebrate accomplishments and victories with! Whether you are an experienced athlete who wants to learn a new skill (handstand pushup perhaps?) or you're just starting out with no idea on what to do next, this dedicated 1-1 time puts the focus entirely on you, your schedule, and your goals. I can't wait to meet you.
I have experience in personal training, small-group training (2-4 friends who love to workout together) and large group training (15+ people). My clients range from teens aged 13-18, young working professionals, and adults + seniors.

Vivian took time to assess my fitness goals and learned about my back injury from a car accident which occurred a few weeks prior to our initial session. After a few sessions, I knew Vivian was indeed a very knowledgeable fitness trainer. Because of my condition, she literally made efforts to redesign a training program that has made it possible to achieve my goals. She would consistently push me to take up new challenges and exceeded my own expectations. As results, I have seen improvements of my strength and flexibility.
I have found that it is exceedingly rare to come upon instructors that demonstrate a genuine excitement to enlighten and see their students/members improve. I think the highest accolade I can provide Vivian is the numerous clients of Pandora that reach out and share how excited they are to have her as a coach. They appreciate her candor, her energy, and her willingness to share her knowledge and experience.
Working out with Vivian is a constant reminder of how important a great coach is to having a good workout. Her energy, fun workouts, and most importantly knowledge of why to train certain movements (not just what movements) make all the difference. These factors make for an exceptional workout that goes far beyond what I would achieve even by doing the same exercises on my own. There really is no dull moment when training with Vivian. You can always count on her being on time and being full of positive energy. We always get started by doing a warmup that gets me more limber and focuses on stretching out the muscles in the workout of the day. Followed by that, we review and practice any new movements and how to scale them up or down depending on difficulty. And then you can always count on the workout to push you. After just a class or two, she has a good feel for your limits and know just the spots to push you on to make sure you’re challenged.
Vivian is a shining light! She is motivated to be her best self, and she motivates the people around her to go after their goals, in fitness and in life. Impossibly fit and upbeat, Vivian is the trainer you need if you want to build strength and confidence, while having a blast!
I met with Vivian Andreeva, and she was all the Find Your Trainer bio said about her - and more! I am an older man with some chronic health issues. After a clear discussion of these and my goals, she was able to enthusiastically develop a plan that is heart-healthy and which assists with balance, strength and flexibility. She is a great listener and is very knowledgeable. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for an empathetic professional who loves keeping us fit, healthy, and smiling!
A fantastic match! I have established a wonderful working relationship with my new trainer, Vivian. She is a great, empathetic listener and knows her stuff! I am grateful to have met her and look forward to working on my balance, agility, flexibility and endurance, at a pace that celebrates every achievement! Wow!!
