Destiny Owen

BFit & NShape Health Center

My belief is that becoming fit can come from many different aspects for individuals. My goal is to find a program that suits each of my clients for a long term journey to their absolute best. Not only physically but in all areas of life. Having a major back surgery seven years ago left me with atrophy and a broken spirit. By overcoming my own personal obstacles it left me thriving to show others that there is always a way to well-being no matter what ailment. This is why being a trainer and life coach is not only a job to me but truly a passion. I feel that it is of the utmost importance that I lead by example. This is why I always strive to become better and have now completely about 20 different races including ultra- marathons, marathons, half-marathons, 10k’s, 5k’s, as well as... Read the profile >>

Doug Moss - Alumni

Green Tara Yoga

My yoga journey began as a kid surrounded by yoga, tai chi, drumming, classic rock and jazz in Northern California. I returned to yoga in 1994 and found immense value in yoga on and off the mat. I made a firm commitment to adopting a yogic lifestyle and to study the practice more deeply in 1999 while trekking across the Tongariro in New Zealand. I have since found an amazing array of yogis and yoginis who have helped me further along my path. I am a self proclaimed yoga mutt. I have studied and practices numerous styles of movement arts and yoga. I have distilled from each and fostered an eclectic yoga style that is my own. I am a firm believer in 1000 PATHS ....... 1 YOGA . Yoga is a liberation art and science. Yoga provides us with the tools to better navigate the rivers and... Read the profile >>

Lizette Dinsay - Alumni

I started racing when I was in the 7th grade. I ran competitively all throughout high school and college. Post-college, I needed something to motivate me to continue working out and to stay in shape, so I began competing in local 5Ks, half-marathons and triathlons. My proudest moment as an athlete was completing my first Ironman Triathlon in November 2012. The successes I have attained in sports have come from the help of others. Whether it be a coach, a teammate, a training partner or a loved one showing me support for what I do, it is because of them that I have been able to do so much in running and triathlon (coupled with hours and hours and hours of training, of course). When things get tough during training or racing, I remind myself of my motto in high school - “I don’t... Read the profile >>

Hi! I’m Michelle Bell, a SPIN instructor/owner at PEDAL! You will find me bouncing back and forth, teaching classes mostly at our Rancho Cucamonga and Claremont studios.

Eight years later, I have a beautiful husband and daughter and these amazing people I get to motivate and SPIN with everyday at my studios - I feel so blessed! I started SPINNING 12 years ago to drop 25 lbs and I quickly became a SPIN-ADDICT craving the high intensity of a SPIN class and the energy it always delivered. I... Read the profile >>
