Therese is certified by NASM and specializes in strength gains (her favorites to transform are glutes and back!) and improving body composition using a combination of functional movement, kettlebells and bodybuilding-style workouts.
Her training mentality consists of moving well and often, improving strength for life experiences and teaching her clients the tools to make improvements 24/7.
Therese instructs clients concerned with body composition in how to work through a pyramid of needs, beginning with the appropriate quality and quantity of movement paired with base nutritional requirements. Working from the bottom up ensures clients build a solid foundation to meet goals, exceed goals, and maintain them for life.
In addition to client-specific training goals, she places emphasis on deep core strength and mobility for all her clients, who currently range from the ages of 21 to 81.
Therese is also passionate about local, whole, sustainable eating and the impact specific foods have on the body. Therese's keen interest began as a teenager with visits to SF where she learned from her aunt, the founder of a bay area organic granola company. She continued to further her knowledge of nutrition and preparation through the years and loves to experiment with cooking and baking in a flexible range of dietary specialties.
Therese is certified in Strength Matters Kettlebell, Animal Flow Level 1 and is working on a Corrective Exercise Specialization through NASM.
At an early age, Casey learned the importance of respecting the body, not only on the outside but how the body was handled internally as well.
Casey watched his father prepare meals and recover from countless body building competitions. This guidance helped Casey plan weekly workouts in advance and see the dedication through every exercise performed. His father inspired him in many ways even Casey couldn’t understand at the time but now appreciates.
"When he was sticking to this regiment, he had a certain glow about him, the everlasting happiness was almost contagious which made me want to follow the same steps."
Fast forwarding to Casey's early 20’s, he finally met his father's level. Working out at the gym is where Casey finds to be the happiest. Casey consistently adapts to new workout routines from fitness legends and continues to educate himself as a personal trainer by reading endless articles on rehabilitation, nutrition and supplementation. In finding new ways to push the body he pushes a new type knowledge on friends, whether they heard it or not.
Casey turned his passion into a career, and over time he discovered not only the love for educating people but enjoyment sparking motivation on individuals thus adding fuel to the fire.
Initially, Crunch Fitness of San Francisco was where Casey applied his knowledge obtained from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Right from the start, he was fortunate enough to build a strong clientele base exposing him to a variety of people of all ages with goals of fat loss, performance gains, body sculpting, rehabilitation due to injury/surgery, new/innovative workouts and clients needing professional accountability.
Casey believes fitness should be fun and everybody should find ways to achieve their goals without dreading the process of getting there.
Now Casey has progressed his career to the next level by joining the knowledgeable fitness professionals with us at Jigalin Fitness.
