Alejandro Terrazas, Fitness Coach & Online Trainer
Coming to the United States from Bolivia when Alejandro was only 14 was a challenge, from learning a new culture, to language to overall lifestyle. His struggle with being bullied and always being told that he was incapable of anything made his life a true challenge. As he grew older he developed the skill to attain confidence and mental strength through fitness, allowing himself to become a lion who tears his fears apart. In a society where we lack self confidence and motivation, Alejandro believes as a coach his job is to help any client truly master their fears through training and by becoming stronger, powerful and unleashing themselves from those chains of “you can’t”. He motivates every single client to make their own shadow, and develop a new and stronger healthy lifestyle. He's here to help you live longer.

Sofia Pellegrom, Fitness Coach
Sophia is a personal trainer, barre instructor, freelance dancer, and proud Barnard graduate originally from the Twin Cities, Minnesota. With a background in classical ballet, she enjoys a creative and form-first approach to training but was never encouraged to build strength due to the aesthetic demands of the sport. However, she soon discovered the joys of feeling powerful through strength training and never looked back. She strives to create a welcoming and encouraging environment for every person to reach their health goals and build confidence and appreciation for their own body’s potential! She’ll push you to work hard, but not without a warm Midwestern smile.
When not in the gym or dance studio, you can find Sophia experimenting with new ways to cook plants, listening to true crime podcasts, or indulging her inner Ravenclaw with books and puzzles.
