Certification: AFI Personal Trainer
Major: Kinesiology
Areas of Specialization: Sports Medicine
Fitness Philosophy:

Fitness goes far beyond just making you look good, it improves your health and well being, quality of life, self esteem and self concept. I believe fitness should be fun and enjoyable, something to look forward to and something that leaves you feeling satisfied and successful.

When I work with a client and design their program, I take into account the whole person, not just their body, but also their mind, spirit and sense of humor. I also believe that you don’t need to put in long hours to get results. I’m not one to waste time so every exercise I choose is goal specific, effective and efficient. Finally I know from experience that an exercise is only as good as how it’s being performed. It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it!

Favorite Scripture: Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Cristina Arenales
Year: Junior
Hometown: Garden Grove, CA
Certification: Aerobics and Fitness Association of America: Personal Training Fitness Certification
Major: Psychology, Health Science
Fitness Philosophy:

A Holistically healthy lifestyle is key; addressing four main areas consisting of Physical, Mental, social, and spiritual needs. Neither of these should be neglected or left unaddressed. Physical fitness and a high nutrient packed diet both play key roles in living a healthy lifestyle. There is always time to address these aspects of life. If something is of importance then time WILL be made to focus on that very thing. We do ALL to glorify God, so when specifically speaking about physical fitness we always work hard and give our best effort.

Favorite Scripture: Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Favorite Scripture:

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Ezekiel 25:17
