I have had a passion for fitness and wellness for many years! In 2008, I decided to get certified to be a personal trainer and start my own personal training business. Along with personal training clients, I implemented a wellness program and fitness classes for a local business to help their employees get more active on their lunch breaks.
In August 2016, I joined Training for Warriors as a member. I was looking for community and a good workout! I found exactly that!
In July 2018, I was hired on as a coach. I absolutely loved supporting people through their wellness journeys and helping to change people’s lives.
In April 2019, the opportunity arose for me to purchase TFW. This gym has meant so very much to me over the last 3 years and I couldn’t not take that opportunity. I love getting to be an important piece of our members lives. Seeing them not only transform themselves but their families and friends around them! We are more than a gym, we are a family. We are here to support one another, carry each other and encourage each other. I am beyond blessed and thankful for this community and every member that comes through our doors! 💛
On a personal level, I’m a wife to my amazing husband, David. He’s my rock and I’m so thankful that he cheers me on and supports my every whim while keeping me grounded. I’m a mom to 3 boys and a baby girl. I’m a huge baseball fan (Go Cardinals!), I love hiking and paddle boarding and doing anything outdoors. I’m also an obsessed country music fan and concert go-er! If there’s a country concert in town, you’ll find me there 🎤
I’m Coach Ricky. I was born with 5 heart defects leading to 2 pediatric open heart surgeries, with the heart problems came the physical restrictions as a child. I was always the chunky kid and struggled with confidence. It wasn’t until my late teens that I started working out and taking fitness into consideration and I have been hooked ever since. I am a certified pharmacy technician by night and a NASM certified personal trainer by day.
I'm coach Natalie. I didn't grow up "athletic". I didn't play sports and I was bad at everything. My fitness journey began as an adult when I wanted to drop a few pounds for vacation and wanted to win a body composition change challenge at work. I joined a gym and started with one day a week. One day turned into two, two turned into 3 until I was up to 5 days a week and loving it. After a few years with some inspiring coaches that helped changed my life, I knew I needed to be helping others find what I found.
I began coaching at TFW and became an ACE certified personal trainer. My hobbies now include anything outdoors with my 3 kids and husband and running challenging obstacle course races with friends. My passion is helping others discover a love of fitness and realizing the potential inside of you. You don't need to be "fit" to start working out. You need coaches and Familia who care about you and and will help you be the best version of you.
Hi, I’m Coach Marilyn and I joined the TFW family in July of 2016 and it was life changing. I had struggled with body image my whole adult life and, was sick and tired of getting on the scale only to step off feeling defeated. TFW taught me not to measure my success from a number on the scale. It helped me understand that cutting calories is not the answer to losing weight and building muscle is necessary for all women. Now I get to share this valuable information with others and help motivate them to a healthier lifestyle.
I’m Angela Perrone and I am an Accountability Coach and Weekend Warrior at TFW Estrella. I started out as an 8 week challenger in March of 2017 and TFW has changed my life! During my time at TFW, I have lost well over 100 lbs, over 60 inches and 17% body fat along with a new found confidence and self esteem.
I never miss a workout and love challenging myself and others. I have participated in many mud runs, 5k’s and a half marathon. I am in a mission to educated people of all ages, especially children, the importance of good heath, nutrition and fitness and to fight the war against obesity! I am a mother of 3 growing boys and they love to come to the dojo with me and compete in races with our group.
The man, the myth, the legend!
