Brianna Alexander

Body Builder

Meet your coach, Brianna Alexander! Brianna has competed in four NPC bodybuilding competitions from 2016-2018 where she nationally qualified and won overall in her most recent show. Three years later, she became a WBFF Pro and won overall in the Wellness Division in August 2021. 

 

She attributes the majority of her success from her most recent bodybuilding competition to the muscle she was able to put on while preparing and participating in two StrongLifting competitions from December 2020 - March 2021 by the instruction of her coach, Bret Contreras, which were far different than her training tactics she used for previous shows. 

 

Brianna received her personal training certification through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in 2016. She now trains both in person and online clients, in addition to hosting a monthly online membership (the Healthy Habit Subscription) where she provides 4-week strength training programs, meal inspiration, and provides other health and wellness tips and tricks to her membership.

Breanna Danielle

Body Builder / Bikini Athlete / Nutritionist / Personal Trainer

Hi, I’m Breanna! I am a Fitness Nutrition Specialist (FNS), Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), founder and CEO of Mermaid Method®, and World Beauty Fitness and Fashion (WBFF) diva bikini professional.
I am a San Diego resident originally from Oceanside, CA. But don’t let the blonde hair and blue eyes fool you. Spanish is actually my first language, as I come from a Mexican-American household.

My passion for fitness began through sports at an early age but reached another level following a turnover crash when I was hit by a drunk driver at 22 years old. Awareness of our movement through space, with a combine practice of healing is what sparked my inner-passion to help others.

I am a business owner and coach, where I earned my Master’s degree in Kinesiology at Point Loma Nazarene University. It was through their research program, I was able to defend my thesis on energy compensation when introduction to cardiovascular exercise. As a post-graduate, continued on to compete in several bodybuilding competitions, compassionately undergoing the process of body recomposition while teaching many others how to successfully undergo a similar process.

In my spare time I enjoy roller skating, hiking, boardwalk strolls, chasing sunsets, reading, picking up heavy things, journaling, yoga practice, deep 1-on-1 conversations, and singing my heart out!
