SONJA LYTH  OWNER AND HEALTH FITNESS SPECIALIST

It’s an absolute joy to see my clients go through life changing transformations, and it is why I love what I do!

I am passionate about preventative wellness and how creating a balanced and healthy lifestyle boosts confidence, enhances vitality, and contributes to the reduction of chronic disease. I founded my business in Hawaii, which was my home for 10 years, and have been fortunate enough to reestablish in DC. Over the last decade I’ve spent thousands of hours designing and implementing a broad range of individualized, group exercise, and nutritional programs.

My method of training bridges the gap between Pilates and functional training techniques. You will find these fusions in all of my classes and personalized fitness programs, and will always leave feeling like you got a unique and challenging workout! Nutrition and health coaching is also a huge part of the equation, and it is offered for every individualized program.

When people ask what type of workout will enable the best results, I tell them the key is variety. My own workouts include Pilates, Yoga, dance, aerial acrobatics, interval training, and running. It never gets boring and I make sure my clients feel the same way. The key is creating a routine that is also fun for you…something that you will look forward to and truly make you happy!

The Team

SashA LYTH  Retreat C0-Coordinator/FINE ART INSTRUCTOR

I am so thrilled to share my passion for art in some of the most art-inspiring locations on the planet! As a practicing artist and art educator with 10 years of experience teaching art at the pre-K – adult level, I have seen the many ways that art can improve the life and general well-being of my students. I am a firm believer that when one approaches art making from an intuitive perspective, allowing one to let go and completely immerse in the experience of making, this manifests into healthful awakening of the spirit, keeps us in the present, and results in deep inner satisfaction and confidence while adding creative balance to our busy lives. My goal is to help you let go of your preconceptions regarding art making, whether you consider yourself an artist or not. On our retreats, creativity will pair perfectly with fitness to rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. I look forward to sharing a week of health and creativity with you very soon! sashalyth.com

 

Alan Gulledge - NASM CPT, USAT, and USATF Coach

Since 2001, I competed in over 100 triathlons and running races, from 5k road races to multiple Ironman triathlons. During that process, I constantly educated and developed  himself as an athlete and coach, and ultimately went through the process of becoming a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and a NASM Sports Nutrition Specialist. I really enjoyed helping others achieve their goals and that is  when I first considered making a living as a trainer and coach. In 2011, I walked away from a successful sales career to become a full-time personal trainer, and triathlon / running coach. Through USA Triathlon and USA Track and Field, I obtained my Level 1 coaching certifications along with continuing education around performance nutrition. I has since formed a business, TriFit Evolution, LLC, and have worked with hundreds of clients to set, achieve, and surpass their goals, both in the gym and on the course.            trifitevolution.com
