Analisa Naldi

profilephoto01-001370000076UrNAAUSince 2001, Analisa has been coaching on how to move safely, efficiently, and with strength.  Her students include an array of competitive and recreational athletes, of all ages and abilities.  Analisa brings a background that includes Hard Style Kettlebell, Barbell, and Bodyweight Instruction (StrongFirst Certified Senior Instructor, StrongFirst Elite), Olympic Weightlifting, Functional Range Conditioning (FRCms), Flexible Steel (Certified Level 2), Original Strength (OS Pro Instructor), youth program design, Physical Education, Balanced Body Pilates Reformer education, and Vinyasa/Forrest Yoga experience.

She focuses her time and passion on educating her students on healthy, sustainable ways for them to move and learn, specific to their lifestyles, brought to life with StrongFirst Principles, especially those of patience and consistency. This enables her students to fully engage in their process while learning, and becoming empowered.

She’s game for anything active that challenges the body and mind, preferably one that will start with the sun rising and ending with her acquiring new skills and a level of respect for herself, her abilities, and those that participated with her. And regardless of the weather, this farm-raised, California born Italian woman is on a surfboard, wakeboard, or stand-up paddle board somewhere nearby.

Creating community through movement, education, and long-lasting habits is at her core; more than a fun bi-product, she believes it is the foundation of what helps create life changing experiences.  Analisa has the pleasure of also teaching as a local corporate wellness coach, a regular guest instructor at Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico, and is a Lululemon alumni-Ambassador.

Analisa is one of the best instructors I've ever had. She communicates all the fundamentals and techniques of whatever exercise or move with great clarity. I like how she breaks down the reasons for why she wants us to execute a move or function in a particular way. Above all, Analisa is a warm and caring person with a wonderful sense of humor. Because of this, I not only go to learn something, but I feel entertained at the same time. All of her instructors who assist her are just as knowledgeable and helpful and as a student, I feel that I am getting the personalized attention that makes the workshops such a great value.

Excellent Instructor. Great energy, great cues and great presentation of the protocols. I learned a lot of valuable information that I can take into my personal and professional practice.

Look forward to learning more from Analisa and her staff of teachers.

Analisa is a truly unique combination of amazing strength, fantastic coaching skills, genuine warmth, energy, professionalism, hard work, and the authentic desire to improve the lives of others.

Analisa is a highly accomplished athlete and coach, yet she makes everyone around her feel welcomed, appreciated, and valued.

She is energetic while also being highly professional and organized.

She is always fun to be around while also sharing precise knowledge.

She is a talented teacher and a great listener.

I have assisted Analisa at various StrongFirst workshops and I have also been lucky to learn from her at some StrongFirst certifications. I am so thankful for her mentorship and everything I have learned from her.

If you have the chance to meet Analisa, jump at it. Your life will be brightened, and you will learn from her not only how to become stronger, but how to live a good life.

I am grateful to call Analisa a friend, mentor, and teacher.

I contacted Analisa a few months ago in order to get help to prepare for SFG1. What makes her unique is her attention to detail, professionalism, enthusiasm, humility, ability to use time efficiently and design efficient programs. Within minutes of my first training session, she was able to spot my leaks and gave me some homework to help plug those leaks. I have made more progress in terms of both strength and conditioning in the last 3 months following her programs compared to the previous year. My lower back is also much looser than before, so I feel better performing my daily tasks.

I had the pleasure of attending Analisa's kettlebell course. She is an incredible instructor! We had just the right mix of fun and work. Analisa is warm and funny which made the class all the better. Your strength skills will suffer if you make the poor life choice to miss her training!

Analisa is called an Iron Maiden for a reason. She lives strong as an athletic and social example. As a coach myself, I can attest to the progressive qualities of her technique correction. She is really great at nourishing strengths while pushing my athletic skills to their max. I'm glad to review such a solid human being and I hope you too can get the chance to share time with her!

Analisa is one of the strongest people I know. Not just for her accomplishment ( Iron Maiden, 375DL...), but for who she is as a person. No matter if met her for 2 minutes or known her for years, you will automatically be her friend. Her quest for knowledge and her humility make her someone you want to associate with. She is strong because she is smart. She is smart because she's strong! I have been fortunate to work with her a few times and every time its a blast!
