Briana's life lessons have led her to sharing the art of healthy living.
Always called the “big kid”
Some clients think of her as a cheerleader. Others, as a drill sergeant. Most say, both. Briana Walegir, called the “big kid” in elementary school, is a charismatic and tireless holistic health coach and personal trainer known and revered throughout Connecticut and the tri-state area.
Became a personal trainer in early 20’s
Born and raised in California, transplanted to the East Coast in her teens, Briana’s early work experience with a leading health food company honed her natural acumen for sales, marketing and retail interaction at all levels. New York Sports Club spotted her while she was running a major marketing event. She then became a personal trainer and group exercise instructor in her early 20’s. She taught and educated herself via a self-designed short-term crash course, with the oversight of a vigilant mentor. Through the past dozen years, Briana has developed broad expertise and a unique style, adding professional certifications along the way.
Major changes and life’s decisions
Her deep sense of fitness stems from a series of profound personal changes:
- a 100-pound weight loss, spurred by the self-realization, after a trip to Bermuda, that to be a successful personal trainer she also needed conform to the image of one
- a severe auto accident that halted her own training for more than a year and opened her eyes to the power of yoga
- the diagnosis of her beloved mother’s cancer, unleashing her plunge into the study of holistic health
- her mother’s death in early 2015, fueling the desire to launch her own business
