Alyssa crossed her first finish line at a young age with her Aunt who is an accomplished business owner and breast cancer survivor. It wasn’t long before Alyssa began exploring her path as an athlete. A competitive tennis player through high school, she transitioned to endurance sports in college, trading her racquets for a road bike and goggles.

Alyssa majored in Spanish and Psychology at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. She spent a semester backpacking and studying Spanish in Argentina; and then combined her her passion for exercise and helping people to earn a Doctoral degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Texas Medical Branch. Alyssa now has over 5 years of experience as a Physical Therapist and specializes in musculoskeletal dysfunction as an Orthopedic Certified Specialist.

Alyssa’s hobbies have always centered around exercise (swimming, biking, running, practicing yoga, hiking, bouldering, weight lifting) and considers creating personalized exercise routines her most creative outlet. She capitalized on her passion for exercise to compete in tennis tournaments, and later a handful of half-marathons, and triathlons. Her primary focus is now on her career and family; which has shifted her exercise regimen to be more comprehensive, functional and intentional. She understands the value training smarter, not necessarily harder in order to maximize her time.

Her goal is to help clients unlock their potential by educating them along the way with simple, key concepts on how to progress (and on occasion, regress) their exercise routines. Rather your goal is to be leaner, faster, or stronger, Alyssa’s expertise will help you reach your goals the safest, smartest and healthiest way.
