What does it mean to be V-Strong?

The word "STRONG" is defined in the dictionary as:

 

1) Having the power to move heavy weights or perform other physically demanding tasks.

2) Able to withstand great force or pressure.

3) Very intense

If you're training to be V-Strong, you're training to run fast, to lift heavy, to live mindfully.

If you want to be V-Strong, you take movement and physical strength very serious, but you know that strengthening your body is only part of the process.

To be V-Strong, you need to strengthen your mind, body, and spirit.

Build a body that has the power to to move heavy weights and that can move fast; Develop a mind that can withstand pressure and rises up to challenges; Nourish a spirit that is intense and full of life and always has faith.

Our methods to becoming V-Strong involve training for physical challenges like Spartan Races, Marathons, Co-Ed soccer games, climbing mountains, or just beating Personal Records. We believe that challenges like these teach you a lot about yourself and in an effort to be better at these challenges we become better ourselves. Our coaches use their knowledge in anatomy, physiology, nutrition and biomechanics to help you change your body composition and help you increase your strength and speed and enhance your performance, all while helping you achieve optimal health. They use their knowledge of psychology and behavioral change, as well as life experiences to help you adhere to  a program that fits you best, and to help you build a mindset that accepts and endures challenges. They use their enthusiasm and passion for fitness to help you continue on this journey and keep your spirits high even when the going gets tough.

About Vanesa

I am a Southern California native and lover of the beach and mountains.  I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a B.S. in Kinesiology and I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, a Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified Nutritionist. My passion for sports and fitness keeps growing and my knowledge keeps expanding.  Growing up I wasn't too confident in myself because from ages 7-11 I was a chubby kid and even though when I hit puberty I lost the weight, I still had my self image as a chubby kid.  My first interest in fitness came because I wanted to be thin, but I soon realized that no matter how thin I was, it was never enough for me; I was never happy with the way I looked.  But then I developed this interest in lifting weights, in running competitively, in doing pull-ups and push ups, in rock climbing, and in all sorts of crazy physical feats.  My body began to change and although it's not as thin as I wanted to be, I don't care and I love it because it has transformed strongly and beautifully and it has allowed me to things I never thought I could.  Today I continue to push myself in new ways be it lifting a bigger weight, running a Spartan race, trying a new activity; and I continue to learn how to move better, perform better, and be healthier and happier.  I want to be the one to guide you to be the best version of yourself through improving your fitness and other lifestyle changes.  Are you ready to become your best self? Let me help you unleash the strength inside of you!
