Coaches

Ricky Magana

Ricky san pedro crossfit

 

Ricky is a grad from Loyola Marymount University. And before he got into training, he spent much of his youth on a couch. He was of the generation that didn’t play outside nearly as much as it should have. One day he discovered exercise and changed his entire life. Today he does what he did for himself; train individuals to move, and watch it change every area of their life. He holds four certifications with the National Council of Certified Personal Trainers, Crossfit, USA Weightlifting, and CrossFit Defense. But the wealth of his knowledge is from the wisdom of training and applying these methods to work for others. He values the art and science of exercise and nutrition and will forever be a student and practitioner of fitness. He has trained professional and college athletes, senior citizens, single moms, accomplished business persons, children, teens and nearly every demographic you could think of.

Mike “Aspi” Aspinwall – Yoga & Rowing For Athletes and Better Movement

unnamedMike found yoga in 2002 when a rowing injury left him out of commission and in a lot of pain.  The team doctor at UCLA advised surgery, but Michael couldn’t see having back surgery at 22 years old.  Not to mention, he wanted to row out the rest of his eligibility.  So, Michael wandered down to YogaWorks and took his first Iyengar yoga class, hoping that a little stretching would get him back in a boat more quickly.  What Michael found in yoga was WAY more than he ever expected or bargained for.  After graduating and finishing his eligibility in a boat, Michael became a certified vinyasa yoga teacher through the YogaWorks Teacher Training Program under Annie Carpenter.  He, then, began teaching in the yoga program at UCLA.  He was a featured instructor in Brittany Roberts’s Yoga Style DVD series, and now enjoys teaching Saturday mornings at Heyday.  Heyday Yoga classes take into consideration that week’s workouts, and the kinds of mobility necessary to get athletes on the road to recovery over the weekend, so they can hit it hard again come Monday.  Classes are approachable, and small enough that Michael can cater to the needs of who ever shows up, regardless of ability, flexibility, or previous yoga experience.  So basically, all you have to do is show up.
