Kirstin Klein

Year: Junior
Hometown: Riverside, CA
Certification: American Fitness Institute
Major: Political Science/Criminal Justice
Fitness Philosophy:

Each challenge you face creates a growth physically and mentally. It's natural to set preconceived limitations but when passion drives your every move, what may seem impossible becomes these exciting goals you're determined to achieve. Know whole heartedly that your desire for growth is greater than your desire to stay the same, so that each day you work even a little harder you've strengthened your mind and body to being a much happier, healthier and stronger you.

Favorite Scripture:

"The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like total darkness. They have no idea what they are stumbling over. My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body. Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech. Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil." Proverbs 4:18-27

Josiah Kaufman

Year: Junior
Hometown: Moreno Valley, CA
Certification: Certified Personal Trainer
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Areas of Specialization: Strength Training, Fat Loss
Fitness Philosophy:

Fitness isn't just about looking good or showing off. It's about becoming better than you were before; being stronger, faster, and breaking the boundaries you thought you had. Being fit is not a hobby or an activity, It's a lifestyle. You get out of it what you put in to it which is why I put everything in to it and encourage others to do the same.

Favorite Scripture:

Ephesians 2:8-10 - "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

Areas of Specialization: Overall fitness & fat loss
Fitness Philosophy: Fitness should be a lifestyle, for your own health and self-satisfaction. It might be a slow process but the sooner you start the sooner you will see progress.

Michael Hall 

Year: 1st Year Post - Baccalaureate Student
Hometown: Riverside, CA
Certification: ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association) 
Major: Pre-Physical Therapy, B.A Psychology
Areas of Specialization: Lean Muscle and Strength Building, Fat Loss, Speed and Agility Training, Sport Specific Training- Track & Field 
Fitness Philosophy: Accomplishing fitness goals requires dedication, desire, discipline and most importantly, patience. From eating the proper foods when others are not, to consistently giving 100% every workout, choices such as these are what separate those who see results and those who do not. Habits established in fitness carry over to other aspects of life because fitness is holistic, not just physical. Physical fitness will eventually create discipline in mental and spiritual fitness as well, leading to a more-rounded developed being.  
Favorite Scripture: "When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom."                                                         Proverbs 11:2

Major: Kinesiology
Areas of Specialization:

Bodyweight Training

Fitness Philosophy:

I love helping others smile and feel good inside out. Living a healthful life shouldn't be stressful; like anything worth while, it takes patience, not stressful pressure. We all have enough stress in our daily lives so I like to make sure some of it is relieved through fun fitness. I enjoy helping others find what they enjoy most and incorporate exercise so they can live out a life time of fitness whether they have access to a traditional gym or not. Simply, I want to help others by adding a bit of joy to their lives so they can enjoy life with the ones they love to the fullest.

Favorite Scripture:

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39
