Ana Costa received her certification in personal training through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. A graduate of Columbia University, she has studied acrobatics, yoga, and the Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira--which she has taught and competed in internationally--for two decades.

Raised in rural Liberia, urban Kenya, and upstate New York, her cross-cultural upbringing and diverse athletic training inspire her dynamic and holistic fitness programs, which are as challenging as they are creative, while emphasizing the connection between strength and active mobility.

Her exposure to diverse cultures and communities profoundly shapes her belief in the strength and beauty of every unique human body, regardless of athletic ability and appearance.
