Welcome! I’m Ireyna Parker.
I got my start in the fitness industry when I started my first gym membership over 20 years ago at Club One Fitness.
My Fitness Instructor Anna, who I can still say to this day, was the most motivating and amazing instructor that I’ve ever had. Her energy just glowed like a ray of sunshine, which was extremely contagious. I was like her little sidekick firecracker in every class, helping her get the other students motivated.
Anna saw something in me and mentioned that I had the perfect personality to become a trainer. She said “ Ireyna, I’m going to get my personal trainer certification and you should come with me” …and I did. I took the course and passed the test.
But Life got busy and I stopped going to that particular gym for some reason…
Then one day I got a phone call saying that Anna was terminal due to having Lue Gehrig’s disease. It was very sad to see such a young, strong, and vibrant woman deteriorate so quickly.
After Anna passed, I didn’t think about becoming a personal trainer anymore, in fact, I started working as a preschool teacher, then eventually a nanny.
3 years later…
One day, I was sitting in my room with tears in my eyes. I felt so confused about where my life was headed and I needed direction, I knew that I didn’t want to be a preschool teacher or a nanny, but I couldn’t quite figure out what I wanted to do with my life.
Something strange happened…
As I was sitting in my room feeling very confused, depressed, and just lost. I needed direction…some kind of sign or inspiration telling me what I was supposed to be doing with my life. I started going through some papers in a box; I think I was looking for my resume or something. Then I found a paper…
Folded up in a small envelope, was a letter from Anna. It read. “Ireyna, here’s a list of gyms that accept our certification.”
In 2007, I started working part-time as a trainer at Bally Total Fitness, and in 2008, I was offered a promotion as a Fitness Director and decided to take the full-time position. Fast forward to 2013. I started my own business.
Thanks to Anna, I now know where I belong.
