Kandice Garcia Tomkins
MS, RN, ACSM-CEP
At 23 I began a career as a “professional” personal trainer in San Francisco, Ca. I was determined to make a living off of doing what I loved surrounded by people who loved what I did. After 3 years of working with healthy individuals I went back to graduate school to pursue a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology and also became a registered nurse to begin my work with clients and patients with special conditions.
After seven years working in the hospital I have come full circle to fulfilling my purpose as an exercise professional. I have been able to take my deep knowledge of exercise and training and combine it with the medical skills of a nurse to be able to meet any client exactly where they are and bring them to where they want to be. I am humbled every day by the opportunity to get to support people through difficult transitions in their lives with movement and wellness. I am inspired by the courage they have to face their fears, do difficult things and break through the barriers that once held them back from achieving the dreams they have for themselves.
There is only one thing I want out of my professional life and that is to be here, with you, teaching you about your body, having you lift heavy things, making you out of breath and showing you the greatness that I see in you one session at a time.
It is my philosophy that as practitioners we all do what we do best and leave the other stuff to the “real professionals”. That’s why we take a team based approach to wellness programming and know that our clients are going to get the safest, most effective plans. Below are the wonderful people who will support you along the way.
