Janelle Imbriale

Role: Personal Trainer
Serving Since: 2019

Hi, I’m Janelle I graduated from The University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Recreation, Sports Leadership, and Tourism Management. During my senior year of college, I became certified as a NASM personal trainer. Following my graduation, I headed west to Phoenix, Arizona for an internship at a functional training gym, Orenda Force. There I trained clients one-on-one as well as small group settings. Upon completion of my internship at Orenda Force, I moved abroad to Costa Rica, took up surfing and lived the Pura Vida life for a few years. Upon returning to the States I got certified through AFAA as a Group Fitness Instructor.

Fitness and athletics have always been my passion. As a child I remember doing obstacle courses for fun, biking, doing triathlons and always going to the gym with my parents. As I got older, competitive swimming and softball were my passions that followed me through high school and partially into college. As a mother now it is my desire to pass my knowledge down to my son, as well as everyone I have the opportunity to work with.
