Certified Personal Trainer & Certified Nutritionist
Owner & Founder of Balanced Health and Fitness
Genea Sparks, (formerly Genea Avila) has studied Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi throughout her career development. Genea grew up dancing, studying Ballet, Tap, Jazz Dance, and Lyrical and Broadway Dance. Her love for the energy and excitement of Jazz Dance led her to teach it for four years.
Prior to her career in fitness, Genea spent six years in the medical field. “I love helping people live healthier, happier lives.” Genea is well versed in Osteoporosis, Diabetes and Thyroid conditions. She knew her true passion was fitness, so she changed careers. Three years after getting certified as a Personal Trainer, she opened BALANCED HEALTH and FITNESS.
Genea is focused on customizing and personalizing BALANCED fitness routines for her clients and overseeing their achievements as they progress into healthy, happy individuals. “Everyone is unique and has different needs.” Her goal is to ensure that Balanced Health and Fitness clients maintain a BALANCE of resistance, cardiovascular training and flexibility in their workout routines.
Genea knows that diet is a major part in living a healthy life and is also certified in Hair Analysis & Nutritional Balancing. Hair Analysis is a major part of Genea’s program design. It shows exactly what minerals clients are insufficient in, or have an excess of. It also identifies what toxins are hiding within the body. This takes the guess work out of supplement and nutrition programs.
“So many people come to me and want to lose weight but often what is needed goes deeper than just a good exercise program and proper nutrition. Some people have had medical conditions, undetected by their doctors, that have made their weight loss more difficult. My goal is to help my clients feel great mentally, physically and emotionally through working out on a regular basis, making fitness a fun way of life and getting my clients on a healthy supplement and eating plan.”
“For the last eight years I have been very sick, being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and a Thyroid condition. My health, weight, and energy level has greatly fluctuated during this time. I have consulted with many doctors who have not been able to help get my health in the right direction. I had lost hope…
So, when I came to Genea last year I was just hoping to get my body moving again. But, what happened instead was a miracle! I slowly began with workout sessions and then progressed to the hair analysis testing, diet/meal planning, supplements, foot baths and sauna treatments. Each month I began to feel better and my energy level has risen as high as it was eight years ago.
I have lost over twenty pounds and my husband is having a hard time keeping up with me!
I am even using less insulin.
Thank you Genea for giving me hope again!”
