TRAINER & INSTRUCTOR

ANGELA DRAWS, CPT

​

"Hi my name is Angela Draws, otherwise known as 'Angie'. My colleagues sometimes refer to me as 'Director of First Impressions' mostly because I am always smiling. I discovered my passion for fitness when I began my journey of recovery. I fell in love with helping people and breaking the boundaries of the limits we once put on ourselves. Experiencing the incredible health benefits that fitness had to offer not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well, I thought it was paramount that I should follow my heart and share this with the world. 
   As a fitness professional, I am always continuing my education and mentorships so I can motivate, inspire, and become a master of my craft.I am a graduate of Sacramento's National Personal Training Institute (NPTI) where I studied the science and art of personal training. I am CPR/AED certified through the American Health Association. I am certified in TRX suspension training as well.
   I love animals, music, playing street soccer, I believe there is always time to dance, and I am so grateful for the family and friends that I get to share this journey called life. Two of my favorite quotes are, 'Just like the tide, you will rise or fall as the most influential bodies around you', and 'You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great"

 

 Interview with Angie: 
 What's the greatest bit of advice a parent or mentor has given you? 
"There's no such thing as failure, there is such thing as a learning experience of growth."

 What motivated you to become a trainer? What continues to motivate you? 
"To inspire people to live a better life. When I see changes in my clients it continues to motivate me."
