Janie Zapata-Wilson is a graduate of Portland Community College with Highest Honors from the Fitness Technology Program where she earned an (AAS) Associates of Applied Science in Fitness Technology, Fitness Technology Certification, and a Certification in Healthy Older Adult Fitness. Her extensive training and certifications enable her to provide a personalized fitness program to a very diverse population.

Janie was introduced to the benefits of fitness when a busy career, family and a lifestyle not focused on being healthy found her desperate to make changes. With back problems and bad cholesterol numbers climbing, she knew it was time to make changes to lose weight and live a healthier. Her focus resulted in a 90 lbs. total weight loss. Her struggle with her own weight sparked a desire to help others reach their health and weight loss goals in a fun, safe, personalized and healthy manner.

When Janie isn’t teaching fitness classes, you can find her looking for something new to learn. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends exploring Oregon on her motorcycle, watching movies, cooking, reading and traveling.
