Marissa Mather

Nutritionist / Owner

Food and cooking has been a lifelong passion of mine.  Growing up, my mother was a dietitian, 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.

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.

Alia Boynton

Personal Trainer

Over 10 years ago, I was first drawn to the transformative power of movement through Yoga, Pilates, and running. I am born and raised in San Diego, California and began my personal practice there. After years of travel, internships, work, and volunteering, I realized my passion for enhancing the health and wellness of others, particularly through movement and physical activity. I received my 200 Hr. RYT Yoga Teacher Certification at CorePower Yoga, and moved to San Francisco shortly afterwards. Upon arrival, I began teaching group fitness classes full time. I found my love for higher intensity fitness both for my own routine and as an instructor and coach. I discovered a power in working with weights, resistance, and HIIT drills which spoke to me as both an instructor and a student. Through a combination of cardio, strength training and flexibility work, I found that I could break boundaries for myself that I once never thought possible. I similarly realized the importance of creating that experience for others. After years of teaching group classes along with private yoga and training sessions, I received my NASM Personal Training Certification and began working almost exclusively with private training. Each person is unique, and I believe firmly in crafting an individualized session for each person which allows them to reach their personal goals and potential. I am passionate about fitness, yoga, and overall movement as a powerful tool to overcome both physical and mental barriers.

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.

Having grown up in Colorado, I've always loved being active and spending time outdoors. With a background in social work and a lifelong passion for fitness, a career in personal training was a natural fit. I've recently moved to San Francisco from Chicago, where I spend the past few years working as trainer in boutique studios with a focus on one on one and small group strength training and conditioning. 

My approach to training is friendly and intuitive, and I tray to make sure my clients have fun while they attain their goals safely through proper form and nutrition. My favorite part of the job is watching people build confidence on and off the training floor through improved fitness and health.

Personal Trainer 

In my mind, movement is the key to life. Through movement we can express ourselves mentally, physically, and creatively. Movement has inspired me to explore different places, experience different physical states, and finish my education. My approach to fitness looks at movement not only as a way to get fit but as a way of challenging oneself. Through challenge we grow and adapt with new solutions to movement and life’s obstacles.

With years of experience in hospitality, physical therapy, and strength and conditioning my ultimate goal as a trainer is to provide comfort, exercise adaptations, and education. To me, fundamentals are key, thus core training paired with mobility are my go to training modalities. Once fundamentals are established the fun begins. I like implementing strength and conditioning, HIIT, Kettlebells, calisthenics, therapeutic exercise, Pilates and mobility protocols. These styles of movement are just small pieces to the puzzle, and I am always eager to find new ways of moving and challenging myself.

Fitness has always been my most creative space. I love photography, videography, and writing but my greatest passion is still training. Encouraging and motivating brings me joy and so does being able to see the change in all of my clients. I believe training gives me the greatest opportunity to help change someone’s life. Their progress and confidence will be their own catalyst to a more positive and purposeful life. 

My style of training continues to evolve as I grow as an individual. I started off with a bodybuilding and powerlifting style of training, but now I am focused on helping people move better with body weight exercises along with yoga style movements in animal flow. The goal is to get rid of every barrier preventing people from reaching their goals. I will do whatever I can to lead to a better you.

Leah Recania

Personal Trainer

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I grew up pretty active my entire life. Fitness to me has always been about pure movement and conscious eating choices. As a dancer, kinesthetic awareness was something I learned early on. Now, I'm passionate about teaching that same awareness to my clients and showing them how to push the limits on their own body, mentally and physically. I am naturally petite so finding my own strength and defining my own health has been a journey that I'm still walking out everyday, but I've learned that whatever your goals are, transforming your body is possible if you're consistent. For the last 4+ years, I've help clients of all different backgrounds achieve fat loss, gain muscle and move better all through functional movement that is safe and challenging to each individual. To me, fitness has always been about becoming my best self, eliminating the comparison game and staying committed to my long-term health. It's not just a thing you can add to your daily schedule, but a lifestyle that helps you live out the better you in every area of your life.
