Kayla Marie Deslandes

Trainer

As an individual who has had a difficult past with the relationship to their body, food and movement, I train with empathy and attentiveness. My training style is focused on proper technique and mindfulness. I teach people how to move their bodies on their own, with skill, intention and enjoyment for maximal results, both mentally and physiologically. I believe that you cannot put fitness in a box because it is meant to be personalized to each unique individual, so that we can all feel natural in our movements. My mission as a coach is to help people find the version of fitness they ENJOY and guide them into total connectivity with themselves!

More About Kayla

Kayla's Fitness Journey

I grew up with a love for movement and a natural curiosity for the many different ways my body could move and perform. Despite this innate passion for fitness, I struggled with heavy self-criticism and expectations. My relationship with body image and food turned my passion for fitness into an obsession that left me looking for value only in the way I looked and movement became a punishment when I could not find any. This changed when I started work as an aide in a physical therapy clinic that reignited my love for the human body and what it can achieve. I witnessed a multitude of people from all different sizes, fitness levels, disabilities, etc., not only heal but move better, and more naturally afterward. The most important part was that I witnessed them find connection to their body, mind, and spirit. Being a part of that journey with them left me fulfilled and determined to reconnect with my own self. I now train my body with gratitude, intention and the same curiosity I had as a child.
