There is no single exercise protocol that benefits everyone. Being able to incorporate traditional fitness training with mind/body helps with creative solutions to fitness goals, similar to a medical combination of western medication and eastern well-being.

With close to 20 years experience in personal trainingf and pilates, I have learned to lead through positive encouragement and education to help clients understand their body and why certain exercises benefit their unique make-up by crafting an individualized workout utilizing weights, Pilates, Tabata, HIIT,  full body exercises, and balance exercises to get the results they desire.

It is very fulfilling to be working with a greater number of special population clients with menopause/metabolism issues, Parkinson's, MS, back issues, and cancer These groups see tremendous fitness gains by incorporating activities of daily living movement patterns into their exercise programs.

Having a lot of personal life challenges, including children with Autism and cancer and my personal physical/joint & menopause issues, I have a greater understanding of exercise modifications and how to help others incorporate exercise into their lives to reach their fitness goals.

Angela Gitschier - Personal Training
Angela G.

About 2 years ago I moved to San Diego from Kentucky to pursue a career in the fitness industry as a personal trainer. I have a weight loss background and a passion for helping others reach their goals while also helping them become more functional in all areas of life. I am firm believer in mind and body, in order to make any kind of transformation, you have to be in the right place mentally. You have to be able to tell yourself you can do it and push through those times you may feel like giving up!

I have a background in Elementary Education but after being on my own health and fitness journey, I decided I wanted to help others achieve fitness goals! I want to educate others on what it looks like to consistently live a healthy lifestyle. I have a holistic approach when it comes to health and fitness and want to provide a toolbox of tools instead of just offer up a quick fix.

My own wellness and fitness journey - via whole body exercise, competition, research and practice - makes me a solid option for Well Past Forty clients - both men and women / individual and buddy workouts.

I became a trainer after years of coaching crew, marathon running, and competitive Masters Rowing. I needed to learn more to perform better. I decided, in 2011, to gain CPT credentials and specialty continuing education to help others "put life in their years" as I've been blessed to do with mine.
As many trainers have done and do, I started my CPT work in a "big box" fitness club. I migrated to "valet" training, where I can help others without "sales pressure".

My typical hour workout sessions only start after a complimentary fitness orientation and PAR-Q "go" from your MD (if needed) and from you.

I usually train my clients in their homes or at convenient outdoor venues - like community parks. I am fully insured for personal liability - by the way.
My own "box" is well-appointed for core, cardio- and resistance training.
- I can also train interested clients in kayaking and rowing (on our San Diego waters).

Half of my clients are women. Another current client slice is that half train with workout buddies.

I am drafting my own Almanac for Well Past Fort; in the mean time, I offer my clients a copy of Younger Next Year.

I look forward to helping you achieve your fitness and wellness goals.

Hey there! My name is Michael "Wolf" Soriano. I am a fitness specialist who has dipped his foot in pretty much everything that the fitness industry has to offer. I have an Associate's in Kinesiology and I like to make everyone laugh. To me, your smile plays a big part in your fitness journey. If you can smile through the toughest times then you can get through anything! I got into personal training for this specific reason. I not only help you with your physical battles, but also teach you how you can apply what you learn in the gym outside of it too! I like to work with driven individuals who like to have a good time while busting their butt at the same time. If this sounds like you, I look forward to meeting you!

Hello, welcome! Clearly something drew you to my profile so let me tell you a little bit about myself and why I'm here. I work with women and girls who are struggling with their identity and self esteem. I help them to feel comfortable in their own skin and build confidence, while improving their health and mental well being. My passion developed after I discovered the impact exercise and mindset work had on my own life. I can't wait to share my passion with you and show you just how much you are capable of!

I have been an athlete since I was four years old starting with swimming and water skiing. I’ve played competitive sports both individual and team throughout my life. I was in gymnastics, ice skating, tennis, soccer, field hockey, track, and softball growing up in Kettering Ohio, Since moving to San Diego in 1989, I have adventured into scuba diving, off roading, more boating, wake boarding, wake surfing, surfing, snow skiing, snow boarding, hiking, golf, and my passion weight lifting. This is why I became a personal trainer. I want to share my passion with others and help others to succeed at reaching their goals. Even though I have always been active, I have never been in the shape that I am now, even at a younger age. I believe age does not limit us it only gives us more knowledge to draw from in order to make a positive difference in our own lives and others.EDUCATION AND CERTIFICATES: Navy Veteran/Devil Doc, Certified Personal Trainer Nesta, Bachelors Degree in Dental HygieneINTERESTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS: Wow! I am interested in everything and enjoy many sports lifting, scuba diving, golf, hiking, boating, off roading, and the list goes on. I love being active, living in the moment, and having a positive attitude. I have competed and placed in three bikini competitions, and participated in a couple triathlons and obstacle races.TRAINING SPECIALTY: At this time my specialty is being passionate about what I do on a daily basis, and helping others to succeed
