A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

The over arching goal of Queers & Allies is to provide a safe and inclusive space where people can transform mentally and physically to reach their health and wellness goals! We wish to decrease health disparities between this community and the general population. By using evidence-based practices, we work to help individuals reduce physical health risks such as obesity, heart disease, etc. and improve mental health risks to depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia, and other common mental health struggles found in the LGBTQ+ population. We want to empower people to feel confident in their identity, expression, and being true to their authentic selves.

ABOUT HAYDEN

FTM Queer Personal Trainer

About Me: 

I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Performance Coach. I hold a Master’s Degree in Sport Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. I have a BA in Psychology from University of Hawaii. While studying at JFKU, I set my topic of research on the LGBTQ+ community and the experiences of LGBTQ+ athletes. 

I have been an athlete since the age of 5 and have been coaching team sports for over 10 years. I started my transition in 2013 and went through this process myself. I have been doing psychological skill training with athletes and coaches since 2016, and have been personal training since 2017. 

I help transmasculine individuals reach their strength goals and reduce feelings of body dysphoria with body masculization. I also work with individuals on strength training, weight loss, and mental skill techniques. I provide a safe space for all individuals to be vulnerable and make the changes necessary for a happier, healthier life regardless of gender expression or identity. I serve LGBTQ+ individuals and allies to our community. 

 

Many people within the LGBTQ+ community, especially transgender individuals, face challenges with confidence and comfort in a traditional gym setting. These individuals also have a higher rate of mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression. There are limited resources dedicated to the betterment of the unique needs and obstacles faced by the LGBTQ+ community. At Relentless Performance, we combine mental skills strategies (scientifically proven to decrease symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses) with the accountability to be consistent with their nutrition and exercise programs. 

PERSONAL TRAINER HANNAH

Hello! My name is Hannah (she/her) and I’m a NASM certified personal trainer with my B.S. in Kinesiology: Exercise Science. I have 12 years of coaching experience and as a former D1 athlete I have lived most of my life in the world of exercise. However, being in this space I never felt like I belonged and couldn’t be my authentic self. In becoming a coach and personal trainer I wanted to create spaces where people can feel that they belong no matter what level they’re at. I work with individuals, partners, and small groups. My goal is to help each and every person set, meet, and exceed their training goals. If you’re looking for someone to help you recognize your capabilities and learn to listen to your body all while keeping you accountable, I believe we’d be a great fit! Some of my favorite past times include collecting plants, building LEGO sets, and taking nature walks with dogs or snuggled up on the couch with my cats rewatching my favorite series. 

PERSONAL TRAINER ARIA

Hello, community! My name is Aria (she/her) and I have been a NASM Certified Personal Trainer since 2016. Exercise has always been an important part of my life, as I grew up with a parent who had a lot of health problems that were only exacerbated by lack of exercise and poor diet. I have unfortunately inherited some of these genetic dispositions that I am always fighting against, but that’s what keeps me going and working hard! Additionally, I injured my back at the age of 13, so I am now well-versed in ways to manage lower back pain and increase core strength so that I can continue exercising and enjoying life for as long as possible. I lift so that cycling, running, hiking, and backpacking feel easy! (Or easier;) Strength training is what is going to set us up for life in the long run. However, as a tinier woman, I always felt out of place and unwelcome in the weight room. It wasn’t until about 11 years ago, when I joined a female run, body positive, strength training gym that I felt safe enough to explore my strength potential. And I fell in LOVE with lifting and being strong, and I really want to help others reach their own strength goals, too. Making others feel more comfortable in a gym space and in their own bodies are both big reasons why I coach! I love supporting the local Queer community in whatever way possible as well. I am so excited to join the Queers & Allies Fitness team and to assist folks in achieving their goals in the most accepting fitness space in Sacramento. If you're ready to jump over that hurdle to getting healthy and feeling good in your own body, hit me up!
