With her newfound commitment to a healthy lifestyle, she soon discovered the enjoyment of exercise. Her mission continued as she prepped for marathons, hired a personal trainer, purchased a bicycle, and even developed a skill-set in skipping rope.

Today Debbie stands proud as Phys. Ed. Studio's lead certified trainer. She's eighty pounds lighter, stronger, healthier and happier than ever.

Gillian

Gillian’s fitness journey began in high school while she was captain of the cheerleading team. She quickly realized the importance of posture and strength while throwing and catching her teammates during halftime. Naturally, she found her way into the octagon in 2016 when she won her first MMA fight.

Gillian officially entered the professional fitness world teaching cardio kickboxing while she earned her BA in Political Science at Pace University. Soon after, she took on operations and management for a boutique fitness studio in New York. There she began her training a specific HIIT style that focused on kettlebells and TRX.

While training Muay Thai kickboxing, she suffered injuries which held her back from competing. Luckily, she discovered Pilates in London and has never looked back. After healing her own body through her practice, she has dedicated her career to healing pain through strength training, Pilates and martial arts. She now is an active competitor in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA. 

 

Matthew

Matthew’s ability to balance regiment with compassion is one of his greatest strengths. He has developed a unique training method by utilizing his background in team sports, weightlifting, skateboarding, and martial arts. His clients train to meet and exceed the demands of everyday life in Los Angeles.

He designed a class for individuals with little to no exercise experience called “Kill Yourself” where he encourages everyone to be better than they were, by killing their negative mindset in order to LIVE life to the fullest. As class leader for the LAPD candidate advancement program, he delivered stretching and conditioning exercises that focused on weight loss and functional movement in a strict paramilitary environment. After skateboarding for over 20 years, he's been able to transition this creative movement practice into unique physical training applications that utilize environments and modalities aimed at injury prevention and power development.

On the weekends Matthew is an active member of Angelus Temple, and he volunteers with the Dream Center Adopt a Block program, where he finds fun ways to engage mental and physical activities with young children.

The studio in itself is AWESOME! Clean, well equipped, fantastic jams, and good vibes! The training team works you like crazy and pushes you to your limits but DEFINITELY makes you want to come back for more! If you’re looking a studio with personal attention and high motivation…this is the place for you!
