My coaching mission is to supply a platform where women + men can create the best possible version of themselves so they are able to give back to others. I understand how city life can get in the way of a fitness routine. Serena has been voted one of DC's top 100 fitness people and has created her exercise and nutrition business, SerenaFit, to help busy professionals make health a priority, offering everything from workout videos and meal plans to online personal training and outdoor conditioning classes. SerenaFit is a digital wellness company that focuses on creating confidence, muscle definition, healthy eating habits and consistent routines through the power of positive coaching. I offer 1-1 coaching, as well as partner and small group training. We focus on city life - how to manage it, how to take it on day after day and how to be our best. My programs are versatile, custom, flexible and realistic. I can't wait to coach you and for you to join my amazing SerenaFit community!
If we work hard, together during sessions & on our nutrition there's no telling what we can create over time!
You can also find me coaching monthly class at Athleta as a Philadelphia Athleta Ambassador.
My favorite exercise
I like a lot of lower body exercises, however, there's nothing better than a good core strengthing set!
My favorite quote
How you do anything is how you do everything.
My training philosophy
Get real with yourself - have uncomfortable conversations to push past internal barriers. Once that path is clear it'll be easy to make a lasting changing within your personal fitness routine. Change your mind, change your life.

Thank you, again Serena. I had a great first session. I was able to do more than I thought. I'm so glad you're helping me. I'll see you Wednesday. I feel really good right now - I've missed this. #grateful.
Couldn't have done it without your support. I've always dealt with my weight solo but it's been an interesting experience sharing my intake and routine with someone else. I really appreciate your insights. I feel so relieved that the blunder from this weekend is falling right off!
And truly, you've really shown me a lot - I never would have known that power walking would be more effective or I don't need to starve myself after a bad eating day. Thank you!
Serena, your occupation is your livliehood, and something you love, but it also impacts others' lives and I think that's so awesome. You're the good kind of "enabler" :)
