About Vanessa
Having been trained in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, African, Hip Hop Dance and Tumbling for over twenty years, I can assure you that you or your child will learn proper technique and will receive all of the physical benefits my dance, fitness and tumbling lessons have to offer ! Aside from being a lot of fun, learning these modalities increases confidence, encourages discipline and drive and optimizes flexibility, balance and strength !

I have been an instructor for over fifteen years ! Teaching is my most loved passion. Some of my professional achievements include managing the group exercise program for two of Sweat Fitness Corporation’s eight locations in the Philadelphia area, being chosen to warm up over 200 prospective Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders at their auditions and more recently being chosen to coach at one of
Las Vegas' only junior Olympic training facilities. I have also had a wonderful professional dance career, I toured the east coast as an African Dancer and was featured on several television programs dancing. Lastly, I am very well educated in Kinesiology, Psychology and Nutrition so I can always be heard giving different age appropriate health and wellness tips throughout my classes. I believe health and wellness is very important at every age !

I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to read my profile, I hope to share my gift of teaching with you and your family. Have a lovely day !

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1987 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 2121 for chess.com blitz rating. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well. I recently won the 2018 Philadelphia Open Chess Tournament.

I am currently coaching several students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating
.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

Matt is amazing. My husband and I never played chess before and after only four lessons we knew all the basics and could play a game. We were so delighted with our progress that we signed on for more. Matt is fun, friendly and a pleasure to learn from.

About Heather
Heather is 30 years old and has had 23 years experience participating in various forms of fitness and two and a half years experience teaching pole dance techniques. At the age of 8, she started baseball with the Boys and Girls Club (5 years), she spent summers in her hometown participated in city sports (tennis, wrestling, track & field), cheered at the local football clinic (2 yrs), middle school (1 yr) and high school (1 yr), ran long distance track in high school (5 yrs), ran cross-country in high school (4 yrs), and wrestled in high school (5 yrs). At ages 7 & 8, Heather was a baton twirler in numerous parades.

Heather is a US Army Veteran and thus has 2 years experience with Army fitness, team management, and leading group fitness.

In 2015, during a transformative time in her life, Heather fell in love with the pole and found
herself engrossed in the performance aspect. Her journey lead her to a change of life and she lost 50 lbs, and despite being an athlete throughout school, became the fittest she had ever been. After two years as a performing artist and dancer, she became determined to help others realize their fitness goals while having fun and expressing themselves through dance. She now teaches pole fitness and dance.

Heather has been teaching calisthenics classes since July 29, 2017 and has had four years experience guiding meditation.

She plans to have a facility one day where she can continue her mission to encourage a fit life, body confidence, and self-expression, by addressing the "whole" of a person, "mind, body & soul."

In less than a year of working with Heather I have regained so much Mobility that I had lost due to injuries. In addition I've lost over 15 pounds and kept it off which I have not been able to do for years. The combination of working out doing yoga and even meditation has given me so much more confidence than I've had in a long time. I absolutely adore Heather.

I've taken both pole and calisthenics classes with Heather and have enjoyed both very much. She always helps me push a bit out of my comfort zone in order to strengthen myself and my body, but never gives me more than I can handle physically. I'll continue going to her as long as she is a teacher and motivator and I'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking for help with their fitness, pole, and well-being needs.

About Annabel
I have been coaching for 6 years now. I have coached private lessons, club teams, high school teams, and middle school teams. I developed my passion and interest for coaching when I was in college playing volleyball where we held camps and helped out coaching. With such a wide variety of coaches in my developmental stages, I became a mixture of the many different styles and methods of all the coaches that taught me to be the person and athlete that I am today. I owe all my success to them and my passion lies in wanting to share my knowledge and love for my sport to others.

I have been playing volleyball and lacrosse for 13 years. I have played at all levels from middle school, high school varsity, internationally, collegiate division one, recreationally, and on all platforms such as indoor, doubles grass, and doubles beach.I am a lefty w
hich has provided many benefits as a volleyball and lacrosse player. I have played OH, RS, S, and L which sheds some light on my knowledge of vertical training since I am only 5'2". I was a dual athlete in college and loved every minute of it! Due to injury, my career fell short which is why I preach injury prevention and studied athletic training, and physical therapy to benefit all my athletes that I have coached.

Annabel took my daughter to the next level from sitting on the bench for her freshman team to making the varisty team the next season. She went above and beyond every single meeting. My daughter loves her and always looks forward to their lessons. She has a great personality and great work ethic. Couldn't ask for a better coach.

Annabel took a lot of time and effort to correct bad habits formed by other coaches. She helped me from when I was in middle school all the way through to helping me get recruited in college. She came to my tournaments and played with me in grass leagues. She does everything in her power to make sure you gain the most out of each and every interaction with her. She has been an amazing role model for me on and off the court and I couldn't thank her enough for all that she has given me. She cares deeply for all of her clients and spends all hours of the day answering calls, texts, emails, and forming plans and strategies that work for each person. She has helped me through all aspects of time management, diet, nutrition, exercise, and even helped me pick out a dress for prom! She listened to me complain about my boyfriend, parents, and school and was like an older sister to me. I struggled obtaining the grades to go to my dream school and Annabel checked in with me everyday to make sure I was getting my work done and studying for tests and always asked if I needed any help. I was a completely lost cause when I came to Annabel and now I'm playing division 1 volleyball for my dream school. I couldn't pass, set, hit, serve, or focus on the court. I had zero court vision or volleyball IQ. I was goofy footed, wore the incorrect shoes, and didn't even think I would ever make it any further than middle school volleyball. My dreams were accomplished thanks to Annabel. I am forever grateful. Literally best instructor ever. Worth every penny and then some.

I will teach you not only boxing but also discipline, confidence and self belief. I can help you discover new limits within yourself and become a healthier, stronger You.

I have used many a trainer before but never achieved my full potential ! Thanks toMr. Hernandez i have learned that getting in shape is not an overnight thing ! I believe that his way of training is quality over quantity. You get what you pay for !!!! I would recomend him to anyone regardless of age or gender ! Thanks again!

I was pushed to know my limits and from there we worked to go beyond the limits. Not all at once but gradually, allowing me to see my full potential as well as gaining confidence along the way. Now I feel more secure in defending myself if the need ever arises and I feel confident that my new body look is ready for the beach. Loved it 💪 🥊

We as people are all unique with our own strengths and weaknesses, body types, and personalities.
This is exactly what my lessons focus on and are all about, being unique.
Fundamentals are important and you must know them but they are only 50% of the battle ! My lessons are revolved around fundamentals but what separates the great from the average is to take those fundamentals and combine them with your special personal skills, abilities, knowledge, personality, and play style ! My lessons are all about building a foundation unique and specialized to you !
We can all learn to shoot, run, and dribble but theres tips, tricks, and inside kno
wledge that you can only get from an experienced player whos been there already. Thats my job, let me train you into the player you want to be !
