Born and raised in Oregon, fitness and athletics have always been a part of my life. From water polo to powerlifting to yoga, I view the diversity of my personal experience combined with science, proper nutrition, and education as the foundation for my approach to fitness.

Simply stated, I opened Custom Fit to provide the absolute best personal training and nutrition services available.

Marissa Mather

Nutritionist / Owner

Food and cooking has always been a lifelong passion of mine.  Growing up, my mother was a dietician, so we always had an emphasis on eating healthy and balanced meals. My Greek background allowed me to learn a lot about the Mediterranean diet as well as the importance of enjoying meals with family and friends. Born and raised in the Bay Area, I love learning and being immersed in the inspiring and innovative food scene that we are world famous for.  Before studying to become a nutritionist I worked in the restaurant industry for 10 years, so my passion for food is not only focused on health, but being delicious as well!  I love learning, researching, and testing new recipes that utilize local and seasonal ingredients, are easy to make, and most importantly taste great.  I truly believe that healthy, nourishing food can be enjoyable and designed to fit into everyone’s lifestyle, regardless of time, finances or skill.   You just have to plan ahead and find the recipes that are right for you. The key for maintaining long term success is embracing the belief that eating healthy is not “going on a diet”, it is a lifestyle and an investment in yourself.

Justin Grinius

RedCord & Pilates Instructor

In 2000 I was pursuing a successful advertising career in San Francisco. Committed to my work, I would spend prolonged periods of time sitting at my desk. The 10-hour days with poor posture began to take their toll and I noticed I was experiencing lower back pain. Before long the pain had developed from a nagging ache to becoming excruciating and preventing me from carrying out normal daily activities. In my quest for answers and healing, I discovered Pilates and on a trip to Europe, the Redcord system. This was a perfect compliment to my workout routine that helped me heal from my repetitive stress injury due to prolonged sitting and get strong and healthy again.

In 2011 I was so inspired that I made the difficult decision to leave my successful career in advertising and to form rebalanced SF. As a certified Pilates instructor as well as the first and only Northern California certified Redcord Active Specialist, I offer unrivaled knowledge and experience in Redcord and Pilates personal and small group training. I am one of only 20 trainers in the U.S. to carry the distinction of Redcord Active Pro Specialist.

Brooke Wilson

Nutritionist / Natural Chef 

Originally from Louisville Kentucky, I grew up in the land of horse racing, bourbon, and southern food.  I have since been on my own journey towards optimal health.  I made my way to the Bay Area many years ago to learn about holistic nutrition and study food's miraculous ability to support health and to heal. Through my work as a nutritionist I most enjoy working with people to help them achieve their goals and support them as they start to see how changing the way they eat can profoundly impact the way their body feels and functions, their energy levels, their moods, and their ability to focus/concentrate.  My passion is making food both healthy and delicious so I’m forever experimenting in the kitchen.  I’m thrilled to be a part of the Custom Fit team!

Omar Galindo

Personal Trainer

I have always been active starting at a young age from playing soccer through various club teams to collegiate level. My college path took a halt when I decided to join the military in 2004. My fitness continued when I joined the Navy to become a Seabee attached to the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 5, The Professionals. At homeport or deployments, you would always find me at whatever gym was available; I performed bodybuilding type movements, but constantly questioned my technique and was always curious about the optimal way of moving the body. Having not much knowledge in the strength side of training, I felt a plateau in my exercise regimen. In 2008, when helping my friend train for BUDs, I began researching various fitness methods and applying it into our training. We tried everything, from HIIT, powerlifting, calisthenics and bodybuilding. By experimenting with different exercises and methods, I felt fitness would be my career path in life. When I completed my service for the Navy, I made it a personal goal to go to college, again, and get my Bachelors in Science in Kinesiology. In 2016, that goal was accomplished.

 I am passionate about training and I’ve made it my life’s mission to help others become their ultimate best and achieve goals they never thought were possible. I have been a personal trainer and group class instructor for the past 6 years and specialize in biomechanics as it is linked to strength and overall health and wellness. As a trainer, the journey never ends as I am constantly searching and learning for the most optimal way of moving the body.

Aleksandra "Aleks" Pavlovic 

Personal Trainer

Growing up I was more of a bookworm than an athlete. Several years ago I discovered CrossFit and weightlifting. I loved the intensity of the workouts and the strength and confidence I gained from both.  Soon enough I was in the gym most days of the week. Exercising morphed from a task “I had to do” to something “I looked forward to doing”. The focus that happens during a great training session essentially became a form of meditation for me.

My background is in the medical research field and I have been a part of some cutting edge research over the years. Working in cardiovascular medicine I know that physical activity is a key factor in preventing a slue of diseases. The more I trained and coached fitness classes the more evident it became to me that my passion had transcended to the fitness field. Recently I made the difficult decision to switch careers and apply what I have learned so far to personal training and overall wellness. As a trainer I try to hone in on each clients unique motivators and curate the workouts to custom suit their goals. It’s always such a joy watching a client master a move, overcome self-doubt and reach his/her goals. Currently I am working in a variety of training roles in The City.

Keith Chatmon

Personal Trainer

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I've been an athlete my whole life. Baseball, football, basketball, you name it, I've played it. After high school there were no more "teams' for me to play on so I turned to weights. I've been working out for the past eight years, however I'd argue that the first four years I didn't know what I was doing and I had a list of injuries to match. I would mimic the biggest guy in the gym in hopes that it would be a way to streamline my results. The one thing that I've learned from my experience is that there are no shortcuts when it comes to fitness, it's a lifestyle. And I love my lifestyle.

Dennis Deheza 

Personal Trainer

Born and raised in DC, I played a variety of sports including football, tennis, soccer, basketball and volleyball. My passion for fitness began when I needed to get bigger, faster, and stronger for high school football. I didn't know what I was doing at the time but I grew a passion for learning about the body and how it functions. This then carried out in getting my degree in kinesiology at George Mason University along with multiple certifications. I have worked and interned at a variety of different rehab centers, strength and conditioning facilities, and private studios which has helped educate me for training people of all different background and goals. Personally, I've dabbled in many styles of training including body building, powerlifting, CrossFit, and sports-specific training. I live in SF and enjoy staying active and helping my clients workout while having fun.

Ryan Heffernan 

Personal Trainer 

Entering my 6th year of coaching, I bring a keen ability to noah people of all skill levels to become stronger versions of themselves. My passion is focused around strength training after seeing the positive effects it has had on the lives of the athletes I've trained as well as my own. As a former tile setter, I chose to make the transition into fitness as a means to better my own movement and lifestyle. After suffering several lower back injuries, I decided it was time to leave the trade and find a way to move and live without pain. Through proper movement and training, I'm now able to compete in powerlifting competitions, and maintain an active, healthy, and most importantly, pain free lifestyle. 

As strength is the most general of training adaptations, it serves as the the foundation for all other skills to be built upon. For that reason, I ensure that proper strength training technique and principles are first on the agenda for any new or advanced athlete.

I recently moved from NYC and I look forward to working with athletes in the Bay Area whose lives can be bettered by the addition of strength. As an experienced coach and strength athlete myself, I feel equipped to progress all of my clients in a safe and effective manner while paying special attention to the individual needs of each and every athlete.
