Introduction: Growing up I played a variety of sports...but once I got to college, I had no idea how to keep my body in its best shape. I already had a passion for fitness and the human body, so I combined my pre-med studies & sports team experience to become a dynamic fitness trainer. Coaching in everything from strength training, weight loss, sports performance training, yoga, pilates, cycling, and more. After graduating from the University of Oregon with a Bachelors in Human Physiology, I began my personal training career working for Kobe Bryant's Mamba Sports Academy, training all types of individuals from professional athletes to those who were ready to be in the best shape of their life. Working here I was inspired to build Body By Ari to give individuals the tools and education they need to live a healthy, active, and balanced life, and create a community of individuals ready to start their journey to become their best self yet.
