Damien Blanco

Damien understands that a smile given at the moment when a client achieves even a small goal is a confidence booster. That sincerity, a will to make a difference, and the dedication to make it happen sometimes lies as much on the trainer as it does the client.  Damien learned that the people he trains, who he invests in, become his partners and their success is my success. This relationship is symbiotic. He has  learned responsibility through the relentless pursuit of integrity and he wishes to pay dividends to his investors.  He is a team player with a capital T.  He makes personal fitness his own priority and believes in fitness as a way of life.

Damien is Ace certified and currently holds the NASM certification. He is a decorated veteran of the United States Marine Corps.

Damien teaches D60.

Drawing from his athletic background, Anthony incorporates a number of exercises from hisfootball, basketball and track and field training regimens into his workouts. His approach is the fundamental belief that whatever your fitness goals may be, the drive to reach them starts within. Anthony is committed to helping individuals achieve physical, psychological and nutritional well being through a personalized training program that is fun, motivational and designed to create a lifestyle change.

Marie Frazier

Growing up in her native Sweden, physical fitness and motion was a natural part of Marie's life. When she moved here some 20 odd years ago, she started practicing Martial Arts, discovering a way of combining physical and mental focus. Yoga became a natural extension of this passion. Through years of running, whether it is marathons, or short sprints through life, the benefits of Yoga continues to blow her mind. Marie's Yoga is synergetic, creating both length and strength.

Marie has a BA in International Business from the University of Gothenburg, and worked all across Europe before love took her to La Canada.

She teaches Yoga, T'ai Chi, and practices Thai Yoga Therapy, also known as Thai Massage.

Mona Seraji

"After 2 pregnancies which resulted in a total weight gain of 150 pounds I decided that I needed to become educated about nutrition and make fitness a daily part of my life. My trainer's passion at Urban Fitness Pilates and the ability to believe in me at a time when I didn't believe in myself completely changed my life. Not only did I improve my body composition, my health and my mood through fitness and a healthy lifestyle, I also learned that it is never to late to be the best version of yourself. My passion is Nutrition and Fitness and I want every women to feel their best. I believe workouts should be fun not torture and I will do my best to put a smile on your face while making you sweat at the same time. I'll be your coach and biggest fan!"

"I have been certified by the American Council on Exercise and I am also currently studying for my Sports Nutrition certification."
