Christa Cocumelli

My passion for health/fitness stems from my desire to help others. Interestingly, my original plan was not to use my Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology to train or work in a clinical setting. Post grad school, however, I decided to do a year of AmeriCorps Service in health education. Looking at health from the community level, seeing firsthand how policies, systems, and environments effect health behavior, and working one on one or in small groups with people through behavior change inspired me to continue this work.

Health is multifaceted. It’s more than just what we do in the gym. What I love about training is that I get to combine all of my education and professional experiences to help you choose wellness every day; not only during our workouts, but also throughout your day to day life. My job is to not only push you to do more than you thought you could, but also teach you so that you feel empowered and capable to do things on your own.
