Marlena Santiago

I started my career in Miami in 2007 teaching group fitness. Throughout the years I have lost 90 pounds participating in group fitness classes which is what inspired me to become an instructor and help other people achieve their goals. I moved to California in 2009 and have had the pleasure of working at various locations throughout the Coachella Valley. In 2012, I realized I wanted to further my career and become certified as a personal trainer. I believe each person in my classes and personal training sessions are unique and I strive for every participant to reach their personal goals. I am a big believer in functional fitness and my passion is working with participants to promote a healthy functional lifestyle.
