About Yesenia

If youre looking to attain a healthier lifestyle and getting your ideal physique, you have come to the right place!


Hello everyone, my name is Yesenia and I have been a trainer for over 5 years. I became a Certified Personal Trainer because I love helping others attain their goals. I love seeing their confidence grow and their bodies becoming stronger! I give results!! Start today and let's achieve! No pain no gain!! I will teach you a wide variety of cutting edge techniques. I will give you nutrition tips, be your accountantbilty buddy, and make sure you are doing what you need for the results you desire!


Im a marathon runner, a mother, love lifting at the gym, and working out from home,  and being out in nature! You will learn a lot with me, I enjoy not just giving you a solid workout but I want you to maintain a lifestyle with fitness. 

My favorite client story

My one client, Victoria had a goal to grow her glutes and legs and she told me that she attained her results quicker with me than she ever had before with her previous trainer. This definitely made my day!

My favorite exercise

Running, plyometrics, and HIIT Intervals.

My favorite quote

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will." Ghandi

My training philosophy

The longer you wait to reach your goals, the longer it takes. Just get it done. It is so much easier saying, "No, not today, I don't feel like it." What results do you get from a "no?" None! Just start moving and get it done, you will thank yourself later. It is also okay to start out slow, as long as you are constantly making progress that's what matters most.

My training experience

I've trained people my age, older individuals, obese individuals, and individuals that just wanted to gain more muscle mass. I love all ages and goals. I enjoy training people at their homes, parks, beaches, and gyms too. I love strength training because with that particular type of training you are pushing yourself to see what you are fully capable of! I've also trained a client who just wanted to become a runner, which was perfect because that's where my personal fitness journey began. I started running track and cross country at the age of 12 and loved it every since.

Yesenia is fantastic! She really listens to your goals and caters the workout to help you meet those goals. She has been a great motivator for me and I really enjoy working out with her! Highly recommend her!

Yesenia is great. She helped me jump start my goal to become a runner. She always pushed me to become a better runner and for that I will always be thankful! Thank you!


I got quicker results with Yesenia than I did with my previous trainer and it was in a shorter amount of time! She is a great trainer and truly listens to your goals!


In the past I had trainers push me way past my limit. So when I came to yesenia I had a lot of boundaries. But she was so personable and really listened to what I wanted and every workout was different and better and I am so much stronger. She was excellent and professional and very motivating. Highly recommended!

Yesenia is great! She pushes you without being too pushy and is understanding of injuries and limitations. I've done more in the past few weeks than I ever thought possible thanks to her! Highly recommend her as a trainer :)


All I can say is she's the best and I mean that in every way. She so sweet but still push you to achieve your goals. She's really everything I wanted in a trainer!


I highly recommend Yesenia to help you with your fitness goals! I had a positive experience working with her. She was very personable, motivating, and engaging during sessions. She was also very informative when providing exercise and diet tips.

100% recommend Yesenia to anyone looking for a reliable personal trainer! I came to her looking to gain muscle/lose fat and she def knows what she’s doing. She’s super knowledgeable and gives great advice, from workouts to food. Shes really sweet and has a great sense of humor, so working out with her is always fun. She customizes my workouts to my personal goals every week so all I have to do is show up and put in the work. I’m honestly just so glad I reached out to her. Yesenia is honestly the best!

Love it. Glad I found this site! I don't have much time to go to the gym and I actually have a decent amount of equipment at home but didn't know how to use them in the right way. I found Yesenia on FYT and she has been great. We recently started and I am noticing I am getting stronger already. She works with me and my changing schedule and my ankle injury. Motives me to keep going and gives me helpful advice on meals etc. Totally worth it
