Client Spotlight – Pre-Wedding Body Transformation – Cecilia Blair

“Silvia is the absolute best personal trainer in San Diego! If you are looking for a results oriented trainer that will push you to reach your goals she is the BEST!

I used Silvia prior to my wedding. At the 4 month mark before my wedding I started with personal training. After just 1 month I saw great results in my weight and measurement.

In the first 3 months with just training with her and keeping an eye out on what I was eating was lost 6 lbs. In the last month before my wedding I went all in and worked with her on Diet and personal training. This is where I saw the biggest change in my body. I lost another 6 lbs and really saw major definition in my arms and stomach. Silvia followed up with me at least once a day in this last month to make sure I was feeling good, energized and on track, which made it easier on me to keep on diet and if I needed a cheat she would give me good healthier alternatives. I could not have been happier on the day of my wedding – everyone commented on how thin I was and people are still asking how I did it! 🙂

Silvia keeps you on track by not only checking in on your weight and measurements but she also had me take weekly pictures. I didn’t think I saw a difference in my body until I saw the before and afters I saw the numbers coming down but the pictures really showed my progress! She is also so fun to work with and in the end I think of her more as a friend than a trainer.

Client Spotlight – A Whole New Life – Julie Kwon Evans

Silvia Giamanco changed my life!

My viewpoint towards healthy living transitioned from a pack of Camel Lights, Mountain Dew, and one Wendy’s cheeseburger to competing in a Masters (35+) bikini competition – I placed third!

She holds such great tenacity and passion for fitness, it is revealed through her creativity and natural nurturing spirit. She never allows you to get bored and I’m easily distracted! Her encouragement, along with her consistent nudge is exactly what was needed for me to keep motivated. I applaud Silvia for her drive, mentorship, and most importantly- believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself!

Thank you!
Julie Kwon Evans, 
Ph.D. Candidate in Healthy Psychology

Client Spotlight – Goodbye Baby Weight – Katy Strand

I had always been someone who is interested in fitness and a good-looking, healthy body. Unfortunately, four years ago, I was diagnosed with a thyroid disease and my physique, as well as my fitness, fell by the wayside.

Over a year ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. The thyroid struggle and pregnancy culminated in me weighing more than I had at any other point in my life.  My self-confidence was at an all time low and I was constantly sluggish.  Four months into being a mother, I decided I needed to do something about the situation I faced when I looked in the mirror.

I visited a few fitness studios and was unimpressed by their cold environment and the lackluster attention to clients and their needs. That is when I found Silvia and Vai Fitness.  I had always been extremely fearful of group and instructed exercise, but the moment I entered the Vai Fitness studio, my fears were alleviated.  I felt a warmth and comfort at Vai Fitness that instantly suggested I was in the right environment.  Silvia took great care to get to know me and my situation and worked with me personally to make certain I would achieve the results I wanted.

The encouragement and instruction she provided were, and continue to be, key components to my fitness success.  I have had the opportunity to take numerous classes from Silvia and the amazing team of professionals she has built at Vai Fitness, including Reformer Pilates, Springboard Pilates, Vai Mix, Vai Cross Fit, Body Blast and Barre.  Each class is dynamic and fun and I always leave with a smile on my face, a feeling that new friendships have been made and the rewarding knowledge that I am giving myself the beautiful, lifelong gift of a healthy body and healthy mind.

I am now the mother of a 16 month old, with a size 4 body, and I have never felt so amazing, sexy and strong.  If you need motivation, support and a family away from home, Vai Fitness is absolutely your place.  It changed my life!  In fact, I am so inspired by the work Silvia does at Vai Fitness, that I have decided to go through the Vai Fitness certification program she has created so that I can become an instructor with the Vai Fitness family later this year!  Thank you, Silvia and Vai Fitness, for all the work you do and for reintroducing me to the passion for fitness that lay dormant in me for so long!  I will be forever grateful!

Client Spotlight – My new attitude – Debbie Pond

“Vai Fitness has helped me change my attitude about working out!”

I discovered Vai Fitness through a membership promotion. I’m in my mid 40’s and at my worst weight and fitness level, so taking the initiative to go into a gym, but realizing what I need to do for myself, was a big pill for me to swallow. I met with the owner Silvia, who was kind and genuine and encouraging, offering to help me with the baby steps I had to take. The sense of relief I felt by someone really understanding all of the roadblocks I put up for myself to get to a fitter self, brought me to tears.

I’m a slow starter but Silvia helped me get through that by texting me little ‘hello’s” in the morning and ask me about plans to “coming in soon?” This gave me accountability, which I needed.

Fast forward through the last seven months later and I can’t get enough of these classes! I can see how my body has changed with muscle and weight loss. I feel terrific!

I so look forward to going to my classes now, Sylvia has passionate, dedicated instructors who have helped me strive for better and they make it fun and interesting!
