Hey it's Elza, not Elsa, but Elza! I grew up in rural Arizona and moved into the Valley in 1997 to attend good ole' Arizone State University. I worked hard and received letters on the football team at ASU while my beautiful wife Kristin Fanning was on the ASU gymnastics Team. After our college careers we had 3 frickin' awesome kiddos: Channing, Champ and Chayton (they are our whole reason for existing!) I coached with the ASU strength staff for 1 year before going to the private sector in strength and conditioning in Mesa, AZ where I was for 6 years. I am thrilled to have found a home here at Orange Theory Fitness and I love working with the awesome clients and fellow employee's. Join me for a class sometime. I like to goof around and play a little rock music!
Hi ya'll, my name is Kyle! I am originally from Owensboro Kentucky, and I have lived in Arizona for about 13 years now. My passion is health and fitness, and my biggest belief is that it is never too late to improve your health! I am all about proper technique and getting the most out of each and every exercise that you do! My goal is to support and motivate you during every step of your fitness journey. I am in our studio nearly 24/7 between coaching and nutrition guidance, but when I'm not, I love to spend time with my beautiful wife Melanie! You may get to meet her in one of my classes as well! I won't lie to you, I do like to play a little bit of Country music, especially in the cool down stretch after class, but I keep a wide variety of music that everyone will love! Come see me soon!
Hi there! My name is Chael aka C-Train! Choo-Choo! I was born and raised in Arizona. I am adopted and my huge family is all about cooking! (my homemade salsa, spaghetti, and carrot cake are legit!) I enjoy playing pretty much any sport, all kinds of exercise, hiking, riding my motorcycle, being in the mountains, and water skiing. One thing about me that is no secret, I love music. I love to write and sing and when I'm not coaching my band and I are gettin' down! I dance when the mood hits, and I can play a little of most instruments. If you see me, smile and I will smile back!
Hey I'm Rob AKA Thunder. I am originally from Chicago, but Arizona has been my home for about 25 years now. I graduated from Western Michigan University, where I spent most of my time playing college football. I am a certified in personal trainer in TRX, and multiple group fitness programs. I've been involved in sports and fitness all my life. Motivating, inspiring, and helping clients reach their goals is my career but the friendships I create, the family and the joy is what's kept me going for so long! Before finding my home at Orangetheory I taught spin and yoga. I incorporate all of my experiences to create one amazing class. Funny fact: when I joined Orangetheory my nickname was going to be "Chocolate Thunder" and for obvious reasons, we went with just Thunder! See you in class!
My name is Sydney a.k.a Syd. I have been a personal trainer for 3 years and have loved every second of it. I have been an athlete my entire life, playing any sport that was thrown at me. Most recently, I attended Mesa Community College and played competitive Volleyball. I was diagnosed at 11 years old with Diabetes, I have been determined to not let the disease get the best of me or anyone else who is suffering. My true passion is to be the best you can be no matter what curve ball is thrown at you. I love to help people reach their full potential and challenge their bodies every chance they get in that bright orange room! When I am in the room with all of the Orange Theory lovers, I make sure that I bring my A-Game so you can receive the best workout in the hour that you give me. Now, not only do I like to see you all sweat, I love to see you walking out with a smile. Make sure when coming to my class you wear a SMILE and are ready for some fun! See you soon!
