When I moved back to Napa, I continued teaching fitness classes at local gyms and began working as a Physical Therapy Tech at a rehab clinic and also earned my Massage Therapist license. While working as a massage therapist, I went back to school to earn my CA State Teaching Credential. I have been employed as a full time Physical Education teacher with NVUSD since 2000. As of recent, I am also a Level 3 Reiki Certified Practitioner.
Once introduced to CrossFit, I was hooked! We started with a small group of people in our garage and eventually outgrew the space! For the most part, I manage the paperwork side of Franco Fitness, while Nacho does the hands-on training and all the programming. However, from time to time, outside of the school day, I have been known to step in and help out with some training when needed. In the future, I look forward to doing more of that.
We have 2 children, Nico & Mia. Between their schedules of 4-H, Water Polo, Basketball, Track & Field, Volleyball, and Dance; you will often see them at the gym…working out, helping, cleaning, or even writing fun, encouraging notes/drawings on the whiteboard for all to see!
I love the community we have created at Franco Fitness, and feel so blessed to be a part of making positive changes for so many people, kids and adults, and helping to impart our passion for health fitness on them.
