I became involved in health and fitness when I started my own personal journey back in 2010. Growing up overweight, I was always self-conscious about my size, but never did much about it. I wasn’t sure what to do, so I never took the time to start my fitness journey.

But in 2010 through fasting several times throughout the year for spiritual reasons, I saw dramatic weight loss… and it opened the door to wanting to see more.

That year, I lost almost 100 pounds and went from 260 pounds down to 165. But I wasn’t satisfied with the results. Because I didn’t have any fitness training, I lost significant muscle mass and didn’t look how I had envisioned, despite the weight loss. This led me into learning about bodybuilding and how to train for sufficient muscle mass.

I went through many years of ups and downs trying to figure out what worked for me. I pretty much tried every diet and way of eating and learned a lot along the way.

But it took an injury to really spark the flame to become a trainer. I injured my lower back through incorrect form on a deadlift. In order to prevent any further injury, I decided to increase my knowledge and explore the path to personal training.

Today I’m not only a certified personal trainer, but also a certified weight loss specialist. These skills and knowledge have allowed me to become a completely self-employed business owner doing my dream job. I get to help people on my own terms and play a role in people’s transformations. 

I love to work out, design personal training programs, and see people get results. But it’s what those results mean for them that makes it worth it for me. It’s letting people know that someone cares for them and understands their situation.

I’m not here to yell at you or make you feel bad about your current weight or fitness level. I believe strongly in patience, grace, and determination. That’s what saw me through to my goals, and it’s a great way to help people meet their fitness goals. And plus it’s a much more enjoyable experience for both of us!

My approach to training is simple: form a plan (program), work hard, execute the plan, eat well 80-90% of the time, and keep at it. Results are guaranteed to come with these simple steps.

That’s because every strategy I use and apply is evidence-based and proven to work, and has worked not only for my clients and myself, but for millions of people around the world.

This personal training program is not about starving yourself one day, and killing yourself in your workout the next. Your habits will dictate whether or not you see success. That’s what I focus on and address: creating and developing sustainable habits that will keep you on track, or help you get there for the rest of your life. 

If you’re looking for help with your fitness goals and think that working with a personal trainer is your next step, I invite you to reach out and see how we can help and how we can work towards those goals.

My name is Damir Hafizovic and I am a Certified Personal Trainer at Alpha Omega Personal Fitness. I specialize in kettlebell training but I also incorporate other training tools and methods into my routines to get the most out of every session. I’ve have been a  personal trainer for over two years but have been working out and living a healthy/fit lifestyle for over 15 years.

I got my Personal Training certification from the International Sports Science Association (ISSA) and I am certified in Health & Fitness and Sports & Exercise Nutrition. The knowledge I have gained helps me to help others reach their personal goals safely and effectively. I take great pride in being a good role model by maintaining my healthy/fit lifestyle. Ever since I was younger, I had a special interest in soccer since I’m originally from Europe.  After studying at ISSA, I consider myself a “multisport athlete” after competing in various competitions like marathons and triathlons.

After certifying as Personal Trainer, I decided to study the use of kettlebells and got certified as Kettlebell Coach from NESTA Kettlebell Coach. I have developed a style of training using kettlebells that are functional, fun and engaging. I  have learned to train using combined exercises in various combinations and patterns that are challenging, logical and yield results. I  use a non-dogmatic approach when training. My training sessions will combine strength, conditioning, and mobility to make sure you are not only getting bigger, faster, and stronger but also more mobile and durable thus so that you can minimize the risk of injury.

I believe fitness is a lifestyle and with proper training, rest and nutrition you too can be the fittest you can be and crush your goals!

Dating back to my career in ball sports (baseball, football, and ice hockey), I have always found myself interested in fitness. I had always considered myself physically fit, but I didn’t realize how much of it was borne out of necessity from participating in athletics.

After leaving sports and attending college, I quickly found myself out of shape and overweight. It was after realizing that I couldn’t move the way I had in high school that I rededicated myself to taking care of my body.

I fell in love with the feeling that pushing myself both physically and mentally in the gym brought me. Not only did I look better, but I felt better too! After years of trial and error, I finally arrived where I am today, NASM certified and eager to share my knowledge to help others achieve their fitness goals!

I have tried it all! Just about every routine, diet, and method, I can almost guarantee I have applied it along my own journey.

Over several years of trial and error, frustration, and self doubt, I found the formula that has worked for me. My approach to training is simple, we will perfect the basics and then progress towards helping my clients reach any fitness goal he or she has.

We will work through nutrition along with training while keeping it lighthearted and fun! Whether it be weight loss, strength training, or simply being more mobile and active, I will ensure that we help you reach your goal safely and as efficiently as possible.

READ BIO

My name is Sharia Olade. I am a Certified Personal Trainer with Alpha Omega Personal Fitness. I attended the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and specialized in MMA Conditioning in addition to being a CPT. I am a former law enforcement officer originally from California.

I began my fitness journey in 2010 upon returning from a trip to Europe that helped me realize the importance of self-defense. As I learned more, I developed an interest in boxing as a sport but with practical applications and began training which helped me become physically fit. My interest in other disciplines specifically Muay Thai grew exponentially, so I studied and even traveled to Thailand to train. I grew up in a household with older brothers who trained in wrestling and karate. Naturally, I was always interested in martial arts being the little sister wanting to play with the boys!

Over time, I began to experiment and gain proficiency in other areas of fitness like metabolic training, HIIT, Animal Flow and other martial arts like capoeira and shaolin kung fu. After a back injury I began to focus more on functional training and mobility to prevent further injuries. I have experienced and overcome many obstacles in my fitness journey including training with an autoimmune condition. My career in law enforcement also helped me to realize the importance of lifetime fitness and reinforced an attitude of discipline and mental toughness in me.

I genuinely enjoy exercise and all of its benefits. I love to train people at all fitness levels whether it be helping beginners realize their potential and reach their goals, or helping the experienced get back on track or take their fitness to the next level. I work hard to develop creative programs that serve multiple purposes like weight loss, strength and conditioning, skill development and optimizing functionality and well-being.

Living a healthy lifestyle is a priority for me. I strive to continue learning and developing new skills that I can use not only to improve my own life, but to serve others. I am currently studying for additional certifications in prenatal/postpartum fitness and holistic nutrition.

I look forward to training with you!

READ BIO

My name is Elizabeth Hoffman and I am a NASM certified personal trainer for Alpha Omega Personal Fitness. I have been training for two years but have been involved in fitness for over 10 years. Growing up, my family was always active in sports and outdoor activities but my love for fitness really grew after I joined the United States Navy. In the Navy, I was able to take on additional duties as a command fitness instructor where I was able to help conduct physical fitness exams as well as instruct fitness enhancement programs. Through these programs I was able to help numerous sailors pass their physical fitness tests.

After my service, I remained active while attending school and traveling the country with my husband, who was active duty in the Army. We adopted two beautiful German Shepherds who always keep me busy. After becoming a certified personal trainer, my desire to help others achieve their goals grew as I watched my own clients lives become happier and healthier. I lost myself a little after I lost my husband. Weight training has been has helped to guide me during this next stage in my life. Working out to me is not only about losing fat, increasing muscle, or looking a certain way; it’s also about bettering our mental health.

So whether your goal is to increase strength, rehab an injury, lose weight, or just sleep better at night, I am here to help you become successful.
