Here's What My Clients Have To Say...


Dr. Chris Kim, 

Orthopaedic Surgeon

"I have been very happy with how my body is changing. My overall energy and strength have significantly increased since I began. I am in the medical field and it is refreshing to have a coach who understands human physiology as well as anatomy. Ivana’s approach is flexible and ensures that I get the best out of her program."


Alim Somani,


“When I started working with Ivana I hadn’t been doing any type of consistent physical exercise since high school. At the time I was traveling a lot, not eating well, sedentary, and dealing with the stress of a busy life. Ivana taught me to push far beyond any limits I thought I had. Over time physical fitness became a regular part of my life. Not only did my health improve, but I found that my stress levels also fell."


Kathryne Smallmejias, Entrepreneur

"Ivana was a real inspiration. Knowing that she herself had a baby and just a few months later looked like her fabulous self again. I let her know that I too wanted to accomplish a similar fitness goal. So 4 weeks post pregnancy I started my fitness journey with Ivana’s invaluable guidance that's helped achieve my goal weight!"

About Ivana

In over two decades as a coach, I’ve developed the tools and flexibility to help you unlock your individual potential, even if you thought your peak physical years were behind you.

Your success is a combination of the right type and dose of weight training, a nutrition plan that takes into account your preferences, and the psychological tools to follow through with your plan.

I started martial arts as a child, earning my black belt in Shotokan Karate at 15 (I’m now a 4th Dan) and competing internationally for 14 years. I completed a 10K run, half-marathon, and marathon in 2012 to prove that I could do it using way less mileage than most runners and a lot fewer carbs. 

I’ve struggled with digestive issues since 1998, and suffered from binge eating, food obsession, and mild depression as a result. Even while I competed successfully in karate, I felt flabby and unhappy. I was heavier at the age of 24 than at the highest weight of my pregnancy in my mid-30s!
