Meet Our Team

Kristi Vaccaro

Hey there! I am the owner of F.I.T LV Fitness and Nutrition and have been coaching for 12 years now! I am a wife, mom of two boys (3 & 5),an athlete, fitness enthusiast, and motivator. I have gone from a competitive dancer to a competitive powerlifter, to now a fitness entrepreneur trying to navigate motherhood, my businesses, and my own health! If anyone understands the stress of juggling work, parenting, and trying to stay fit, its ME! While many curveballs may get thrown at us daily, I love helping people find a way to integrate health and fitness into every day life. Finding that balance between cupcakes and broccoli ;).

If you have goals, I can help you reach them. Having been in the fitness industry for over the last decade I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of clientele. From the client looking to drop a few pounds, to the young athlete, to the postpartum mom trying to figure out how to navigate her newly changed body; I can help YOU. My experience combined with my wide range of education has given me the tools to transform your life.

Favorite exercise: BURPEES!! haha but probably squat cleans or anything explosive or where I can use brute strength

Lease favorite exercise: Rowing or running

 

JESSICA OLSON

Hi there! My name is Jessica Olson and I am so excited to be here! I am a military wife and a mom of two, currently stationed in San Diego. Fitness has been a passion of mine over the last decade and I can’t wait to get to know YOU, the way you like to move, what your goals are, and how I can support/encourage you to become the BEST you possible. I am a certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor, spin enthusiast and overall lover of movement. Training has been a part of my life for the past 13 years, beginning with soccer in high school. Sophomore year was when I truly fell in love with fitness and began resistance training. In 2018, shortly after the birth of my 2nd baby, I became a certified trainer. Through motherhood, being a wife, managing a household, and prioritizing my own fitness journey, my goal is to show up for you in a real honest and authentic way. I believe that when we share our joys, struggles, pain, victories and vulnerabilities we are truly connecting and that’s what I believe life is all about, human connection and love. I have seen the power of movement give access to joy, drastically improve the quality of life, support mental health and create more meaning and belonging to peoples lives. That’s what I’m here to do for you and I hope you are ready!

Favorite exercises: Spin, running and rowing... I love endurance workouts that require burpees, box jumps and step ups!

Least favorite: Bench, Gymnastic skills, and Olympic lifts... to be honest I love it all I’m just not as good at them! Working on that!!

 

RACHEL CEALLAIGH

Hey guys! My name is Rachel I am a Coast Guard Veteran, Coast Guard spouse, and mother. I am currently working on my bachelors degree in Health Education and Health Promotion with the intent to sit for my Certified Health Education Specialist exam upon graduation. I grew up playing softball and volleyball competitively so I have always enjoyed exercise. It wasn’t until I join the Coast Guard that I became interested in Nutrition and how to use it to fuel my body for Olympic lifting and CrossFit. Once I became a mother I made the switch from competitive fitness to training for every day health and this is where my passion lies. I love helping people integrate health and fitness into their every day lives to become the best versions of themselves. As a mom and a student I understand that life can get hectic and I am here to help you navigate through those difficult seasons.

Favorite Exercise: Squat cleans, split jerks, and burpees!

Least Favorite Exercise: Rowing, bench, and AMRAPs

Chandler Sommerfeldt

Hi! My name is Chandler and I am a new mom to a little one named Bodhi. I currently reside in Durango, Colorado and when I’m not coaching or working, I am spending my time in the mountains adventuring with my family and 2 doggos. My background ever since I was tiny, all the way through college, has been team sports; even playing NCAA soccer through college. As a result, I have been weightlifting in a group environment for the last 15 years. When I moved to the mountains back in 2018, I took a huge shift towards all things endurance (prefer to adventure via mountain bike). I have spent countless hours programming and training to be the most efficient possible when it comes to moving your body for the long haul; learning how to incorporate weight training to prevent injury and last longer. What I soon realized, is that motherhood is the longest endurance event that I have ever partaken in. Becoming a mom changed me. It is through this transition that I have been able to tie all of my previous experiences, education, and certifications together. I have experience coaching group fitness classes, sport specific training, 1:1 tailored training, and endurance programming. But my favorite is helping clients find food freedom - to eat what they love and still find success!

 

I believe that women, especially pregnant and postpartum women, have been underserved for WAY too long. It has become my main passion and focus to help women reach their highest potential in the most honest and genuine way that I can. If you want to keep mountain biking, or rock climbing, maybe even run throughout your entire pregnancy, I’m your girl! Being a new mom and working full time, I can relate when it comes to figuring out how to find the time to make it all work. I am so excited to help you learn new tools and take back control of your goals. I am a believer that by being SELFISH to your own health goals, it allows you to be SELFLESS when it comes to supporting others. Got to fill your cup up first! Are you ready?! Let’s do this!

 

Favorite Exercise: Mountain biking, back squat, single leg deadlift, hiking and carrying my baby

Least Favorite Exercise: If i had to choose....bulgarian split squat (but it's a love hate relationship for me!) 

Tia'lani Jordan: Administration

Hey everyone! I’m Tia & I’m the admin for FITLV :) I’m a mom to a wild toddler & a wife to a sports fanatic. I joined FITLV as a client during my pregnancy & it was a game changer. Ever since then I’ve loved to gain more knowledge with health & strength through all things FITLV. I grew up an athlete with volleyball & basketball but was not educated on the relationship with proper foods. Over the time as Kristi’s client, & now the admin staff, it has been such an amazing journey to grow & learn so much. I love assisting with creating content & working on all things fitness to help educate people on FITLV. It's more than just a program, it's a community :) Happy to be a part of this amazing team & witness people change their lives!
