Meet our personal trainers
Personal training is a truly special service. I have been doing personal training for over 10 years. My ability to fine tune the needs of each individual to make them successful is what makes my personal training so effective. While I love working with folks from all walks of life, my specialties include:
Bigger Bodied and Fat-Identified Folks
I identify as a bigger bodied individual and can attest to the fact that being trained by a person who you can see yourself more closely reflected in can make a person feel safer and more affirmed.
Additionally, I understand how to present alternatives to exercises based on a person's body and comfort in such a way that is unique to someone who walks through life in a bigger body.
Black, Indigenous, People of Color
I am a person of color and understand how empowering it can be to move your body with other people of color. I am committed to creating a safe, positive fitness environment for all BIPOC, free of your typical negative experiences that can come with predominantly white fitness spaces.
In the end, I am here to help every client reach reach their goals. I strive to keep workouts new and interesting, challenging and empowering, and most importantly, fun! These workouts can vary from power lifting, olympic lifting, general strength and conditioning using body weight, and dumbbells/kettlebells, or just general foundational movements.
You will always feel like you got a hard workout when working with me, but the goal is to have you walk out the door after your session feeling accomplished and excited to come back.
I am Hollywood Texas First Spirit artist, ancestral healer, bodyworker, pleasure activist and queer strength trainer. Happiness is a language few of us have been taught to speak, and to speak it authentically takes a great deal of strength. As a practitioner of authentic movement, my approach to strength and fitness comes from the radical, indigenous and sacred perspective of pleasure and purpose. I see all things movement through an ancestral healing arts lens, which brings my fitness focus toward learning intentional engagement of the core (no, not the abs) and to restore proper relation back to the buttocks (yes, all the squats). All bodies deserve to engage, embrace and express their inherent, authentic self through the movements known as strength and fitness. I am passionate about providing a framework for anyone of any level of experience, moving throughout time and space to access their authenticity, through knowing themselves as strong.
I began my own movement and embodiment practice about fifteen years ago, as a means to alleviate the chronic pain and illness I’ve experienced since childhood. As a young artist and knowledge seeker, learning things like yoga, meditation, self-defense, strength training programs such as TRX and CrossFit; I quickly became a passionate professional trainer and coach. Able-body Disciplines such as Body Building, Powerlifting and Olympic Weightlifting all influence my work as equally as my own art, trauma healing, transitions and disability - All of which have taught me much about embodiment, physical therapy, rehab, general mobility and the importance of slowing down. I know the body to be filled with wisdom, and strength as the means to know it. Fitness, to me is not about fitting-in to any other place than our own unique body, happily. No matter what goals or desires are held, through the sacred process of change; pleasure is our purpose and it begins with the breath - the foundation of strength, life and of being alive!

Personal Training Program
We know that lots of folks might be considering fitness as a method self care and better health. But we also understand that taking the first step in a fitness journey can be intimidating.
It’s been shown that one of the best ways to overcome this uncertainty is through personalized, one on one training - a service we proudly offer at Radically Fit. However, there are often financial barriers which make personal training seem out of reach to underserved communities of color.
In support of Radically Fit's mission to center the needs to queer and trans people of color, we are are excited to share news of our BIPOC Personal Training Program.
4 Incredible Weeks is Just the Beginning
As part of our BIPOC Personal Training Program (BIPOC PTP), we are looking for three people of color to receive one hour of personal training from Luca once per week for a period of four weeks at a reduced rate of $65/hr (normally $120/hr).
Program participants who are not current Radically Fit members will also be able to attend one free class per week of their choosing.
At the end of the four-week program, BIPOC PTP participants are encouraged to continue benefiting from Radically Fit membership with the sliding scale Community Cares Program.
