My Personal Training and Group Fitness philosophy is based on positive energy, intensity and having fun. I help my clients incorporate health and fitness into their individual lives, and teach them how to exercise correctly to build self-confidence in and out of the gym. In 2003 I began my fitness career in San Diego, California and I’m excited to bring my philosophy and style to Seattle, Washington. Whatever your goal is, we’ll get there together.

"Health and fitness have always been major priorities throughout my entire life. After years of competitive sports, I began realizing how much posture and proper lifting techniques were essential for every type of goal. My approach to personal training is based off of education. Educating my clients through the proper phases of training: stabilization, strength and power, ensures exercise becomes a lifestyle change were the benefits are noticed in everyday life right away. I love training, and am very adamant about my clients reaching their goals, whatever they may be."

Paige Dumler
NASM Certified Personal Trainer

My passion for healthy living sprouted from my own personal battles with nutrition and exercise. After an injury I incurred through running, I once and for all discovered the importance of form and function, and that proper nutrition is crucial to reaching any goal.

Building a strong and stable base to condition and strength train from is key no matter your goals. I believe that a step up approach through stabilization, strength and power yield the best, and most long lasting results. The benefits of physical health are immeasurable- mentally, emotionally and financially.

“Living an active healthy lifestyle has always been an important personal goal. In my 30’s, life as a full-time mom provided the greatest challenges to that healthy lifestyle with significant weight gain and indications that I was pre-diabetic. Fortunately my 40’s have been transformational. Not only have I learned to pay more attention, once again, to the needs of my body and mind but I have discovered a passion to work with others to improve their quality of life through personal training and group fitness instruction.

My focus as a personal trainer is to develop a balanced program that is fun, flexible and goal oriented. Whether you need greater balance and stability, a structured post-rehab program or need to make positive lifestyle changes, I would love to help you reach your goals!”

I have 13 years experience as a personal trainer. My training programs are designed with a focus on balance; for the creation of muscle memory, flexibility; to facilitate proper movement, core strength; to prevent injuries and to improve balance. I develop training programs using functional and practical strength exercises. The idea behind this is that by concentrating on functional and practical strength the body learns how to best move and use its energy in all planes of motion, and in the activities of daily life. Balance and Flexibility are key components of my model, gaining muscle and loosing weight happen while increasing the body’s maximum potential through stretching and strengthening exercises. Most importantly I believe that training should be fun and that workouts don’t have to be a difficult task we have to do.
Ieva M. Vashkus
NASM Certified Personal Trainer
5 Years Training Experience

Physique building, education, motivation, accountability, and support are the fundamentals of my approach to personal training. I seek to invigorate my clients with exciting programs, guide them to their health goals, and teach them not only the "how" but the "why". I have a holistic approach to fitness that includes exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle; I custom tailor routines to suit each individual. My goal is not only to train, but to coach and provide a foundation so that my clients can continue to achieve their goals and make good "life" decisions even when they are not in session. My skills are multi-disciplinary and I apply a variety of techniques to achieve weight loss, weight/muscle gain, or performance improvement. Whether you want to run your first marathon, shave time off of your Seattle-to-Portland ride, lose 5% body fat, gain twenty pounds, or fit into a smaller dress size, I can assist you. As someone who has undergone a major transformation (both in terms of body fat and conditioning), I have an intimate understanding of what it takes to succeed and keep my clients continuously challenged and motivated.

The path to self-confidence is paved by exercise, fitness, and a healthy lifestyle. My goal is to help you feel great in your own skin. With sixteen years of competitive swimming, multiple triathlons, quality time in the physical therapy field, and a photographer’s eye for detail, my life experiences have made me realize the importance of proper form and function. My training style involves educating clients as I guide them through proper stabilization, strength and power. When I’m not at the gym you can find me planning my next cycling adventure, heading into the mountains with friends, connecting with family or scouring the farmer’s market for fresh food. My goal is to make my passion for health and wellness contagious so you feel excited and happy with your fitness results!

"I come from a gymnastics and dance background where form and attention to detail reigned. My other background is in comedy improvisation. I’d like to think these two balance each other out. My greatest emphasis in training is on form and fun. Your health is a lifelong commitment and the process should bring you joy.Conquering your physical fitness can change your perception of what you can accomplish in this world and provide a sense of fulfillment and balance. In my life, physical challenges have bred strong mental focus, courage, humility, confidence and a hell of a lot of fun! This is what I want to share with you. I have over 10 years teaching gymnastics & dance, 5+ years with core conditioning, boot camp, weight training, Muay Thai style kickboxing, and obstacle race training groups."

I am a Ballard native and started my passion for health & fitness years ago by focusing on my own goals and knowing that I want to live a healthy, fulfilling life.

My focus as a trainer and instructor is to help people by assessing their fitness goals & daily lifestyle. I will help them accomplish these goals through functional training with strength, cardio and total body exercises. I like to help people with proper form to get the full benefit of each exercise. I enjoy working with women in particular who may not have the knowledge about strength training but want to learn more about it and how it can help them become stronger, improve performance and feel good about themselves.

I want to help people find the same happiness and self-confidence that I have found and enjoy, by being the healthiest person they can be for years to come.
