B.S. EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY NASM cES PES
Geoff was born and raised in Anaheim, and spent most of his youth playing sports.
After finishing his athletic career playing football at Golden West College, he realized that he needed something to compete at. It was at this time that Geoff found his true passion in weight training.
He attended the California University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and Sports Management.
After graduating Geoff took a 4 month internship with the Washington Redskins as an assistant to the head strength coach John Hastings. It was there that Geoff learned how to implement the knowledge that he had retained from school. Learning how the coaches programmed the workouts to achieve each athletes goals is what gave him the idea for Train Insane.

COACH MARCO B.S. KINESIOLOGY
Marco is an Anaheim native that began his time at Train Insane as an intern in January 2013. Marco practiced Tae Kwon Do as a child, and would eventually earn a gold medal for sparring in the Jr. Olympics. However, he did not continue on with his athletic career past elementary school which eventually led to a sedentary life, and ultimately, weight gain.
Being obese throughout most of his youth, Marco grew tired of his poor eating habits and poor quality of life. After high school he found a renewed love for fitness and health by attending a local 'globogym'. While making positive strides in his health at first, Marco quickly began to plateau with his fitness gains.
To get over this hump, he changed his major in college in order to study fitness. Recently graduating from Cal State Fullerton with a B.S. in Kinesiology in May 2013, he has been coaching at T.I. ever since.
B.S. HEALTH SCIENCE
Natasha was born in San Diego, and she spent most of her youth training in dance. Dance gave her the opportunity to work with local dance companies such a Garage Dance Company, Unity Dance Ensemble and Persian Cultural Center to name a few. She recently graduated from Chapman University in 2013 with a B.S. in Health Science as well as a minor in Dance.
In fall 2010, Natasha attended her first class at Train Insane Gym after being referred by a friend. She soon discovered a new talent and passion for weight lifting. In the summer of 2011, Natasha began interning for Train Insane.
During her first month as an intern, it was clear that she had a knack for teaching people. Over the next several months Natasha not only became a valuable member of the coaching staff, but also set the female gym record for back squat, (290) dead lift (290) and clean (230).
Her passion for fitness has led her to also compete in several competitions such as the Next Level Invitational, a figure show in December 2013 as well as a USA weightlifting competition in 2014 which qualified her for Nationals 2014. She went on to finish top 10 in the nation in 63kg weight class.
