About Pinky

My top priority is helping you achieve an active and pain-free lifestyle. I know that chronic pain can be debilitating physically, mentally, and emotionally. It also limits your ability and mobility to live a healthy and active life.


I empower my clients to break through the chronic pain cycle and redefine their health and fitness. I am able to identify the underlying root cause of their pain by assessing movement patterns and working with the whole body, not just the symptom. Our health is multidimensional so my approach reflects that. I utilize my proven 7-pillar system to get my client's health and fitness to the next level. My program addresses everything necessary to create and maintain an optimal level of health and wellness to include fitness, nutrition, and recovery, all of which are fully customized for each client.


If you are ready to finally overcome years of chronic pain (not just alleviating the symptoms) and live a pain-free active lifestyle then schedule a free consultation today!

My favorite client story

I had been working with a client both virtually and remotely for over a year. When we first met, he was at a low point in his life dealing with debilitating pain, depression, and weight gain for the previous two years. Once we got started, every week he was making progress. Eventually, we were able to reach milestone moments. He was able to walk further without pain, enjoy playtime with his daughter, lift weights again, and complete his first 5K.

He was a dedicated client and did the homework I gave him, which contributed to his steady progress. Not only was he able to leave with the knowledge of how to care for his body physically but also mentally, emotionally, and nutritionally. He stills reaches out to me for recommendations, advice, and to give me updates.

My favorite exercise

Running and lifting weights.

My favorite quote

Live life to the fullest because you never know what's waiting around the corner.

Learn from the past, live in the present, work towards the future.

My training philosophy

To train efficiently, you have to understand how the body is moving. By observing every movement a client makes, it can tell me a lot of what's going on with the body, such as tightness, restrictions, strengths and weaknesses.

Pinky is very knowledgeable and professional. She listens to your goals and sets a personal plan to help you reach them. She is very personable and knows what she is talking about.

Pinky is really knowledgeable about fitness and is fun to train with. She customizes the workout to fit my needs and helps achieve my goal. In the 20 sessions that I have trained with her, I have seen good improvement in my stamina, core balance and toning of muscle. Pinky is always cheerful and makes the workout fun by incorporating fun moves and music.

I'm still new to Zenergy, having only had three meetings. So far, though, my workouts have been tailored to everything I asked - location, time, and goals. I explained my concerns on day one. And I already have noticed actual tangible real-life (I think you get my point) improvement in my number 1 goal. I absolutely recommend.

Anne G.

I suffer with some knee and back issues and Pinky tailors my workouts to fit my issues. The workouts are challenging and definitely interesting. She encourages me to push myself without being overbearing or rude all the while being cognizant of my somewhat limited mobility. She's always punctual and is flexible when unexpected situations come up. If you have not been working out and you want to get started or if you worked out before and need some help starting back up Pinky is definitely for you.

Monica W.

With my collection of injuries, it's challenging and alarming to find someone willing to work with me. Pinky was really excited about my issues and has helped me gain strength back after a car accident and mobility in my other injured areas. I didn't think I would feel this good again, and it's amazing to see what is literally weekly progress. If you want to get healthy, get back to being yourself, this is the person to call!

Irina R.

My experience with Mrs. Pinky was amazing. She always brought different exercise moves of exercises that were hip and fun. She gave great tips on nutrition, flexibility ,and bomb endurance challenges.

Patrita W.

I have been working with Pinky for about 4 months now. From the very beginning her approach to fitness has attracted me. She took the time to properly identify my initial fitness level and create a plan to get to my goal!!! I felt that she motivated and pushed me to perform, but she was carefully watching me and my vitals to ensure that I am not being overworked. Her flexibility with the schedule has really been helpful. Last but not the least, I felt that I really am getting a great value for my investment. If you are serious about being healthy, contacting Pinky will be the correct 1st step.

Pinky is exceptional. I started with her because I severely hurt my lower back, and after shots/Physical Therapy, I knew I needed more. Pinky, is gifted, detail-oriented, and carries an unmatched knowledge; she tailored the workouts/exercises specifically to my needs and concerns. Working with her over a few weeks, I strengthened my core, glutes, and legs (which are everything). I was back to doing my regular day-to-day routine (being able to pick up my toddler, lean over, walk without hurting, and not even think about pain). I have a new understanding and appreciation for what my body needs and how to safely maintain my strength and prevent future injuries. If you have injured yourself, you will understand the mental space it takes up in your life, and there is simply no way to express my deepest gratitude for having met and worked with Pinky. I have gifted her services to my family members because everyone (injured or not) would benefit from the opportunity of being Pinky’s client.

Abby G.

Pinky is an amazing fitness coach and specialist! I worked with her 1:1 for a 10-week program and it was phenomenal. She listens and adapts to your needs with each consecutive workout. She was able to watch my form and ability in my workouts to customize the movements, reps, weights, and types of exercises to meet my current level of fitness AND specifically become more responsive to my personal body type. I was challenged to workout harder and smarter and encouraged to change my approach to fitness and wellness. Thank you so much Pinky for believing in me, supporting me, and making me work harder towards my health goals! I recommend Pinky Uttayaya-Andrews 100% with 10 stars!!!!!
