About this pro

FitByMi is a lifestyle, wellness brand that uses consistent physical, health, and mental practices to support the resilient, strong, independent everyday hard working women because when you are mentally sane and at your healthiest self, you look and feel more comfortable in your own skin. 

I have been in fitness all of my life. I ran track for two D1 colleges where I recieved a full ride to both schools ,Washington State University and CAL State Northridge. I ran the 400 and 200 so i know all about building endurance and strength. I graduated from CAL State Northridge with a B.S in Kinesiology with an emphasis on sports studies. I trained a few of my friends during my time in school and when I seen there results and how it made me feel it made me want to train and help more individuals. 

I moved back to the Bay area and immedaitely started training at city sports. I didn't care for how much they charged the clientele without offering them much other than a 30 minute training sesssion so I went into buisness for myself. Started fitbymi and having park classes and housecalls. 

It was going well until COVID hit, my business took a hit, thank god I was working at Perform For Life in the city during the time. I continued to train the clients I built there virtually. I recently made my year mark there in Nov. 2020. However, Im back to building my clientele outside the gym. I'm located here in Hayward and I have a spot at a gym in San Leandro where I can take clients, I am also willing to take house calls depending on the distance. 

I have my degree in Kinesiology, my TRX certification, Nutrition Cert, some continued education credits in core, kettle bell training, stretching, myofascial release, and functional aging. I have personally worked with two olympic coaches, trainging track athletes, and continuing my olympic lifting education. I am currently studying for my Strength and Conditioning cert, and saving up for my massage therapist training.

I don't have many followers or post too much but only becuase I am busy training clients and getting my fitness line going. 

I enjoy getting people back to their healthier self. I don't want my clients focusing so much of their time and attention on their appearance but more so on how they feel. I enjoy watching people make their gains, and losses and to see the joy in their eyes knowing the work they are putting in is actually working.

    Coach Mimi is great! I've worked with her for 7 months and she's always super motivating, flexible, and in tune with my physical progress. I was new to strength training and she helped me expand my routine a lot. I don't think I could've stayed active during the pandemic without her!

    Working with Mianni was such a great experience! Not only was she very knowledgeable and patient— she also pushed me and gave me the encouragement I needed. Because of this I am seeing results weekly! I definitely recommend her to help you achieve all of your fitness goals!

    Mimi is an incredible coach. She is super positive and also holds you accountable to the work and the progress you want to make. I had not done much weight training before (mostly cardio) and she worked with me to build strength—I honestly did not think I could get strong like this! And it feels great, I notice it daily. When quarantine hit she pivoted our workouts to home with the equipment I had and kept the workouts varied and fun—all still challenging in the best way. She checks in on your goals consistently and has focused routines to work on strength, posture, better sleep... I honestly can’t imagine 2020 without Mimi—the regular sessions made a huge difference physically and mentally. In case you can’t tell, I’m a huge fan of Mimi. She is a fantastic coach and trainer and I can’t recommend her enough!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First intial contact with a student is asking a lot of questions getting to excatly what you need from your training and trainer. 

Then once a client has signed our first session will be an assessment to see how your body moves, any pain with movement, your range of motion, pattens and coordination. (If the client is on the fence I offer one of my saturday morning classes (when I'm having one) which is only $10 so people can get a trial run. 

Now depending on the client, how they move, and their assessment depends on where they go next in the process whether thats hypertrohpy, body composistion, increasing range of motion, speed, etc. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

TRX training, Kettle Bell training, Nutritional training, CPR/First Aid, Functional again training, etc!


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Prices vary depending on what you're asking for but just to ball park.....

Virtual 1:1 $55 for 1 session 

In person you meet me somewhere close $80

House Call depending on distance 110-130 (gas prices may vary)

Group bootcamp $99 a month (the months I am having them)

Again prices may vary when you guarantee multiple sessions a month (I come down on prices) 

Inquire (because I do try to work with you)


How did you get started teaching?

I loved Antaomy in highschool, I was undecided my first year in college but I made sure take anatomy and Dr. Morgan took my love for the body to the next level. I ran track and on my free time here and there epscially during summer I would go to the gym with my non-active friends and get them moving and it made me feel good but it made them feel great so I kept going.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with plus size women and men. Teenagers who are sport specifc (mostly those increasing speed & strength nothing more). Those who are just trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A few people working on hypertrophy, and some trying to just rid themselves of pain, or get their butts kicked brutally. 

Predominantly Women!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My virtual saturday morning pop ups. I was surprised to see the turnouts I've been seeing because during this time I've noticed people saying they don't enjoy working out from home, but I still get  few in class that don't mind it too much.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advise to go after someone that actually has an education in dealing with the body vs. someone that just has a nice body and says they train. Make sure its someone that will take the time to keep educating herself/himself. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What they want regarding their fitness? How much time are they are realistically willing to put towards your health? Group training vs. 1:1 ? Virtual vs in person? What amount can I realistically put towards my fitness goals? Am I willing to put in enough time to actually start seeing results?
