iFit Trainer Highlight: Anja Garcia
Meet iFit Trainer Anja Garcia!
As an AFAA Certified Personal Fitness Trainer, Anja has filmed workouts for Daily Burn, Xbox Fitness, and Power Music. After competing in collegiate gymnastics, she went on to receive her nursing degree. Today, she works as a registered pediatric ICU nurse at UCLA’s Mattel Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, where she continues to pursue her medical career while teaching fitness on the side. She loves doing both and having the ability to change lives every day through proper health, nutrition, and fitness education.
We asked Anja a few questions so you can get to know her a little better!
If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Definitely french bread!
What advice would you give to fitness beginners?
Start where you are and take one day at a time. Getting in shape is hard! After having a baby, I have a new understanding just how hard it is to start over. Have patience with yourself and give yourself grace as you struggle, but do not give up. Show up every day and I promise change will come!
If you could time travel, what time period would you visit?
I would probably travel to the time of dinosaurs! It would be incredible to see them in real life—just as long as I could escape fast!
