  • Angie Ventura

    Graduated from Texas State with a Bachelor of Exercise Sports Science and a BA of Spanish with a minor in Health.
    I have always been into sports since childhood but the love for fitness grew tremendously after being diagnosed with Lupus at age 19. I was curious to see how far I can push my body despite of having a debilitating disease and the effectiveness of the lifestyle change enthralled me. I believe that fitness along with a plant base diet is medicine to our bodies and I want to share my passion to help you be the best version of yourself.
    My unique 45 minute high intensity interval training program focuses on building your power, increasing your strength and improving your endurance. Incorporating the components of stabilization, agility and functional training.
