Our Story


ES+2019+headshots-166.jpg

  We are not your average personal trainers. We value authenticity, truth, growth, and sustainability... we stand for AUTHENTIC FITNESS.

Collectively we have been strength trainers for 15 years, Dave for 10 and Janaya for 5 years. In addition to being a trainer, Dave is also a licensed massage therapist, specializing in an advanced modality called NeuroKinetic Therapy. Janaya has also collected her fair share of additional trainings: 200 hour yoga teacher training, Y12SR Leader, Wellness coaching training, Precision Nutrition Level 1 certified coach, and Reiki 1 certification. We are called to offer a multidimensional approach to wellness, combining high intensity strength training on MedX equipment, bodywork, wellness coaching, and yoga.

We have been partnered since 2012 and married since 2015. We have always been a terrific team— on the river, the trail, in the studio, and in life. We disagree on a lot! And often hold vastly different perspectives. But this is part of the magic that makes us, us.

We bring it all.

Dave is logical, rational, philosophical, and intuitive. He’s focused and intense.

Janaya is allied with emotions and feelings; she is spontaneous, fluid, creative and expansive.

Together we are magical and masterful; strong and spirited; grounded and generative. Most importantly, we bring all our positive attributes to serve our community, to promote strength and wellbeing in body, mind, and spirit.

We have a new vision for fitness, a sustainable and beneficial approach that can create a bedrock of strength and fortitude in one’s life.
