Lindsay Del Rossi

Fitness Trainer

Lindsay comes to us from the state of Florida where she earned her BS in Exercise Science and also a BA in Fine Arts.

Education:

Lindsay started her exercise regimen at the age of 7, when she watched her mom participate in Jazzercise. Lindsay thought exercising looked way more fun than playing with the other kids. Soon she made her way to the front of class and knew all of the instructor’s routines. Lindsay holds a B.S. degree in Kinesiology and Studio Art – Florida State University. After getting a degree Lindsay moved to the West Coast to further her career as a personal trainer and group exercise guru

Workout

Linz likes to challenge her clients by having them do exercises out of their comfort zone- but her goal is to always make it fun.

Philosophy:

Lindsay says "I take exercise seriously so you don't have to. I want to make it fun because- let's face it- sometimes exercise sucks! I've felt the pain in my chest, the stitches in my sides, the aching muscles. I have felt the morning drag where I really would rather be sitting on my comfy keister watching The Real Housewives and eat ice cream. But I know the benefits of exercise, mindfulness, nutrition & how it affects your life, your heart, your muscles, and your mind. I remind myself how much better I feel after a good workout.

I like to educate my clients while we are working so they know WHY they are doing a certain exercise & where they should be feeling it etc. I want everyone to love Exercise as much as I do & realize that YES YOU CAN. We should all reap the rewards of exercise. Because everyone deserves to feel good! Linz Hugs!"
