Aqilah Elshabazz Pope – Dedicated Fitness & Wellness Coach

Hey there! My name is Aqilah, your dedicated fitness and wellness coach. From an early age, I was always passionate about fitness and nutrition. But, like many of us, I developed unhealthy fitness habits during my years as an athlete. From injuries to unhealthy relationships with food, I experienced it all, but I always knew something was missing. The excessive “No pain No gain” mindset simply didn’t seem sustainable. This led me to pursue a degree in Health and Exercise Science and eventually a career as a personal trainer.

As a former Sanda (Chinese kickboxing) champion and martial artist, I love to bring the mindfulness, breath work, and discipline-forming techniques I learned into sessions with my clients. This allows them to form better mind-muscle connections during their sessions, reduces their likelihood of injury, and allows them to have sustainable and long-term results that serve them during and after their time with me.

Whether you’re starting your fitness journey or getting back into things, I’m confident I can help you reach your goals. I am passionate about helping busy 35+-year-old women make time for their health and wellness. In our sessions, we’ll work on developing sustainable nutrition habits, improving your mobility and flexibility, and improving your cardiovascular and muscular endurance.

To help you reach your goals, I offer 1-on-1, semi-private, and online coaching for my clients.

I am dedicated to helping you be here for a good time and a long time. I hope to see you soon!

Hey Badasses, it’s Bree Norton! I am a Del Mar native where I found my passion for strength training at Mira Costa College taking kinesiology classes. Although I didn’t pursue a kinesiology degree, I continued to expand my knowledge in fitness and continuously living a healthy lifestyle.

Jing Xu – Certified Personal Trainer & Certified RYT Yoga Instructor

English: I am an ACE certified personal trainer since May 2022 and RYT 200 certified yoga teacher since September 2023 with 6 years of dedicated training and education. I’ve worked with many clients over the past year of different ages, races, and genders to help them achieve goals such as overcoming physical limitations, developing stronger cores, being more functionally fit, and losing weight. Quote from a client, “I give Jing huge credit for helping me make big improvements in my physical health and overall well-being. Quantitatively, I have lost 12 pounds and gotten a lot stronger.”

Until my late 20’s, I didn’t play any sports, I averaged 15 hours of screen time per day due to work and leisure. I was the least fit among groups of friends when hiking, snowboarding, and doing anything physically active. As a young professional, I was feeling burnt out many times from my 80-hour work weeks while running startup businesses, which eventually resulted in me hitting my rock bottom.

Since 2017, in an attempt to get out of rock bottom and to change my lifestyle, I tried various sports such as racing on dragon boat teams, boxing, snowboarding, sailing, rock climbing and bouldering. I realized that all of these activities I enjoyed required a certain level of physical fitness and strength, as well as my dream of traveling the world and running more startups in the future. I started to invest in myself, with the first step being investing in my physical fitness. I stepped into a gym for the first time in June 2018, and started strength training regularly since then. I worked with 5 different personal trainers over the next years and this experience changed my life. Now I am strong enough to pursue my dreams and the sports I enjoy. This experience made me decide to transition my career and get certified to help transform more lives through personal training.

I bring over a decade of experience in education, serving 5000+ students and professionals from 25+ countries. I’m also a certified Crisis Text Line counselor bringing experience in supporting people emotionally; comment from a texter, “You were a gift from heaven”. I have a Master’s degree in economics and finance, which helps me see the world in the big picture and honed my ability to invest (not only financially!)

I look forward to helping guide you along the way as you invest in yourself to improve your physical fitness and transform your life!

Leah Hasapes – NASM Certified Fitness, Nutrition and Wellness

I am a nutrition and wellness consultant who has always had a passion for fitness. Native to Southern California, I was born in Los Angeles, eventually making my way to San Diego to attend the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree. Early on in my studies I made some necessary changes to my nutrition and motivated by the results I started to see, it fueled my confidence to join a fitness facility. I immediately discovered I loved the way exercise made me feel. I was more positive after a demanding workout. I had more energy. My sleep quality improved. Aesthetically, I liked what I saw in the mirror. My confidence increased. My mental health was improved. It was so empowering being able to control the way I looked and felt through diet and exercise and in turn I wanted to also help others feel empowered to make the changes they desired. This drive prompted me to take the necessary steps to become certified as a fitness trainer, and I never looked back.
I have an incredibly dynamic background as a fitness trainer with over twenty years of full-time clinical experience. I have worked with men, women, children, teens and adults aged eight years old to ninety. I can train pre-natal women to term and post-natal as well. I can train bodybuilders and pro athletes. I can rehab clients through injuries and I can work with those looking to lose weight, accumulating a track record of clients with over fifty pounds of weight loss!
I began building my fitness experience at 24 Hr Fitness UTC La Jolla, where I trained for five years after which I then advanced on to the Bay Club Carmel Valley (formerly Pacific Athletic Club PAC, a high end 15,000 sq ft sports facility with a 50,000 member base located in the Del Mar area), training there for eight years. After obtaining enough knowledge and perfecting the art of trainer/client bedside manner, I felt ready to transition on to training independently and continue to do so up until the present day. I am now proud to be part of the Self Made family in Del Mar, a high end independent fitness facility with a quality network of trainers.
I am certified through the reputable National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and additionally certified as a Sports Performance Specialist (PES) and Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) obtained through the same school. I am also a Level 1 Functional Movement Screen (FMS) Instructor and a Level 1 Balanced Bodies Pilates Instructor.
My specialties in Corrective Exercise (Rehabilitation) and Functional Movement foster work with special populations recovering from neck, shoulder, back, hip, knee and ankle injuries. Additionally, I can instruct clients in the proper techniques that will enable efficient movement producing maximal results with minimal injury. My expertise will allow you to get you the results you want, when you want, all while reducing the risk of injury.
With my background in Sports Performance I can train athletes of all ages in any sport, both men and women. Having played sports myself, I know what it takes to train a successful athlete. I played Varsity Volleyball, Basketball and Softball in High School. As a softball player, I was an aggressive center fielder with incredible speed and agility. I could throw a softball down the line from center field to home plate all while under extreme pressure, which ultimately led to being scouted to play in college. I was a cheerleading captain and I also have a dance background. I am a hiking, biking and running aficionado with 13 ½ marathons under my belt. I am a competitive NPC bikini bodybuilder with ten years of experience in the sport. I am a five time bikini bodybuilding champion and a six time national qualifier. In addition to experience in these sports I have trained pro golfers, pro skiers and helped clients PR (Personal Record) on their marathons. With these qualifications I believe I have the proper skill set to take you to the next level in your sport. Let me be the one to help coach you on your journey to reach your personal best.
My experience as a bikini bodybuilder gives me the ability to train both men and women not only to be competition ready on the stage, but off the stage as well. In addition to helping you prepare to show off your hard work on long summer days at the beach in the sun, with my background in nutrition through the sport, I can provide knowledge on food prep, enabling you to continue seeing results on your own. I will help men feel more confident shirtless and women feel more confident in their favorite bikinis. The summer months are not too distant and that means beach season, so come get beach ready with me!
Lastly and most importantly, I want to bring to light how important it is now more than ever to make health and wellness a priority. In the US heart disease is the number one cause of death and the most preventable chronic illness. Investing in a health and wellness program will help reverse these dire trends. You just can’t afford not to, your quality of life depends on it. Choose me to be your health advocate, I will do everything in my power to help you achieve success on your fitness journey. That’s a promise.Book a consultation today by entering your information below and let’s get started with your in person or online training program. You can also contact me via:

I truly believe in helping others live their most confident life, helping my clients get in the best of shape, all while having fun in a judgement-free environment.

Mikayla Thoits – ISSA Personal Trainer in Del Mar

I’m Mikayla Thoits, a 20 year old personal trainer from Santa Barbara. I moved down to San Diego this past year in hopes to start my own personal training business. I started playing sports at age 4 and my passion for movement and health has only progressed since. I have always been very athletic and competitive in the best way. My love for sports starting at a young age made me realize how important exercise and nutrition is. It excited me to learn new things that could help me mentally and physically.

I always had the idea that I was going to college to play soccer and major in kinesiology and sports medicine until covid happened. Therefore my whole entire plan shifted. While training during the summer to be prepared for my college soccer season, I fell in love with personal training. My mom being a personal trainer herself really inspired me to follow in her footsteps, which led me to not take the traditional route that I was supposed to and start my new path. Having my mom and many other mentors in my life that are all involved in the fitness space made me even more driven and inspired to follow this dream of mine and turn it into something.

What I love to focus on in training sessions are strength and functional mobility training. When being new to the gym I feel functional mobility is key to focus on to get clients comfortable with the whole training process and their body movement. I also am very knowledgeable with strength training, being an athlete my whole life, and wanting to build more muscle so clients feel stronger and more confident in their own bodies.

I have been a personal trainer since September of 2022, I have trained friends and clients my mom could not fit in her schedule and have heard all good feedback. I may not have a lot of experience with clients yet, but that doesn’t mean I am not knowledgeable in what I do, and am always wanting to learn more to incorporate into my business.

When working with me, we’ll spend time together honing your vision of success – the path that’s right for you and the one that may need a software update – and then crafting a perfect plan for you to tackle the body, life, and workout you want. Through science backed training, measurable workouts, and my full support, we will prepare your body so it can do whatever you want it to do. We’ll integrate work, play, hustle, deep diving questions, and mindful movement to every session and check in. You’ll be in the driver’s seat putting in the hard work while I’ll be the roadmap to get you from point A to point B.

Looking forward to working with you! *high five emoji*

Taimi Barnett – Women’s Wellness & Weight Loss Trainer –

Hi! My name is Taimi (pronounced “Tie-me”), and I’m so glad that you are here! You’re looking to further your fitness journey, and you landed on this page– my page– so thank you! I wholeheartedly believe you are here for a reason, and for that, I am beyond grateful.

I have been in the fitness scene for an ongoing 20 years now! Growing up in competitive sports and then transitioning to resistance training, fitness has been a part of my life basically since I was born! It has always been a passion of mine to serve others, so I started sharing my fitness knowledge online back in 2018 and knew from early on that I wanted to pursue a career in this field. Since then, I have continued my formal education by obtaining a B.S. in Kinesiology as a Fitness Specialist and NASM Personal Training certification.

Now let’s be honest, being a woman in the fitness scene is just different than it is for a man! No matter how many times we deny it(like I used to), there are simply more complexities for us when it comes to being a woman in fitness.

You can find any trainer who will tell you cut and dry what to do, but do they take the time to wholly understand YOU? Do they truly care to help you navigate the disordered behavior that is so common for women to deal with on their own? Do they genuinely understand the female fitness experience? Are they properly educated on the female body? These are important questions to be asking, and in my honest opinion, the only way to really know how it is for a woman is to BE a woman.

My training philosophy has a strong emphasis on empathy. Yes, I have the knowledge and scientific information on exercise and nutrition tailored for you, but more importantly, I ultimately want to understand YOU and where you are coming from in your journey. It is never just about the scale or the muscles. It is about the whole YOU. I want to help YOU. Exercise and nutrition is just the key to unlocking the best version of YOU.

I want nothing more than to help as many women as I can achieve their goals, and ultimately learn more about themselves. At the end of the day, that’s all we can really ask for!

So if you are ready to truly level up your Self and overall quality of life, this is where it starts. Let’s change the female fitness experience to one that is strived for!
