Athlete of the Month



These total rockstars are loving the feeling of getting stronger, overcoming the mental challenges of tough workouts, and the undeniable aesthetic benefits of training hard! Johnny Estrella and Vanessa Antoine bring it every single time they step in the gym, ready to handle whatever their trainers throw at them. We can’t wait to see what’s next for them!

ASF South: Johnny Estrella

From Johnny’s trainer, Nick Deluz:

I chose Johnny for the Athlete of the Month – wanna know why? Because this man means business! He came in knowing exactly what he wanted, and every time we meet to train, Johnny is in it from the first minute all the way till the last minute of his session, no matter what it takes! So far Johnny has made a substantial gain in strength and most definitely has lost some inches around the waist within the last two months of training.

Johnny gave us his side of the story:

What do you enjoy most about training with your trainer at ASF? Nick has been patient and encouraging as I got back into working out. I’ve worked out on my own with programs in the past, but the results I’m seeing from my 1:1 sessions with Nick have far surpassed what I have been able to do on my own and in a much shorter period of time. It also takes the guessing out of your own work outs, all I have to do is show up and put in the work.

What have you been most proud of since you started training? I’m proud that I’m less afraid of what I’m capable of doing in the gym – meaning that I feel more confident in my physical abilities and I’m excited for what else I’ll be able to do in the future.

What are you looking forward to? Hot Boy Summer 2022


ASF Central: Vanessa Antoine

From Vanessa’s trainer, Chad Pilkington:

When it comes to self-determination, Vanessa is a champion. As if it weren’t enough that her daily run streak is still going strong for 7+ years, she’s constantly seeking ways to improve herself both in and out of the gym. From pistol squat progressions to pull up progressions, every new thing I bring her way is fully embraced as she gives her best in her journey towards mastery. Teaching her new movements is a joy because I know that as soon as she gets home, she’s going to keep working on them and the next time we train, I can give her more challenges. Every time she walks in the door at ASF Central, she brings an awesome energy that motivates everyone around her.

As a new trainer, I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of Vanessa’s fitness journey. It is my absolute honor to nominate this absolute ROCKSTAR to be ASF’s Athlete of the Month. Welcome to the family, Vanessa!

Vanessa told us about her experience:

What do you enjoy most about training with your trainer at ASF? I love that ASF is customized for MY goals. Chad does an outstanding job in listening to what I’m looking to get out of a workout, and tailoring our sessions to what I need.

What have you been most proud of since you started training? I love how I’ve progressed. Weights are getting heavier, workouts are becoming more intense, and I feel like my trainer believes in me!

What are you looking forward to? I’m looking forward to seeing physical changes: less flab, more definition!
