ACE Professional Profile



Vanessa Laniawe

El Cajon, CA US 92021

About Vanessa Laniawe: Unlike most personal trainers, I didn't start out loving fitness, health, or sports. Until the end of high school and early years of college, I was extremely overweight and unhealthy.  Then, like most people looking to make a proactive change in their health, I decided enough was enough, and that it was time to make a change.  I slowly started eating healthier, exercising, and I got into kickboxing in college.  From there, a passion was ignited.  I went on to study a couple of other martial arts, but had to put that on hiatus while I finished my degree at SDSU.  After I graduated, I realized I didn't want a career in the major I studied in, and went back to my martial arts training. At my previous job, I fell in love with educating others (especially kids), so when I got back into training, I realized that I wanted to share my knowledge and passion of martial arts by becoming a certified black belt/instructor.  Well, it turns out that a big part of martial arts is self-respect.  If I wanted my students to respect their bodies and their health, I would need to share with them the knowledge of how to do so.  Thus, I decided to become a personal trainer.  I have learned that leading a healthy life, much like studying a martial art, is a never-ending journey.  I am truly honored to be a part of my clients' journeys to their ideal, healthy lifestyles.
