Coach Ariana’s fitness journey was a bumpy one, starting with being an active outdoor muddy kid who loved running and mountain biking in the woods, to being sidelined by a crippling genetic disorder and autoimmune disease in her early teens. Functionally disabled until her mid-20s, she began CrossFit and discovered the joys of scaling workouts. Ariana now holds an elite powerlifting total, has several trail racing wins under her belt, and survived being tossed into the Spartan Games ’21, and coaches both high-level hybrid athletes and new athletes battling injury or chronic disease.
As someone with a stunning variety of health complications, my goal is to help every individual realize their own unique path to health and physical ability. Whether it’s being able to keep up with the grandkids, run a Spartan Beast, crush Hyrox Pro, or run a marathon without losing a lick of strength, I love helping people accomplish goals they previously thought impossible. Through radical mindset shifts and smarter, obtainable goals, I believe everyone can challenge themselves and grow in ways that bring them joy and fulfillment, and it’s my personal joy to help them arrive there.
