Certified Personal Trainer & Certified Nutritionist
Owner & Founder of Balanced Health and Fitness
Born in Santa Cruz, Genea Avila, powerful out of the womb, began dancing Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical and Broadway at the age of 4. Genea’s Passion for Jazz dance was simply undeniable and organic to her birthright. At the formidable age of 16, her collective passion of Jazz Dance led her to teach. Throughout the natural development of life, Genea studied many other forms of specialty movement including Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi. Her love for dance, catapulted her into a broader love of wellness which charted the path for mastering her physical and emotional health on such a dynamic level; it prepared her to share it with the world.
Prior to her professional career, Genea obtained her M.A. (Medical Assistant) through ROP in the medical field during her college years; ignoring her own failing health signs. Genea Suffered with Auto-Immunity Disorders during this developmental time including; extreme fatigue, body aches, limited basic movement and an unexplainable 60-lbs weight gain. Now, with an entourage of diagnosis including Psoriasis, Hashimoto, Epstein Bar to Low Platelets but never truly landing on a full conclusion; this Journey of personal suffering became a strong contributor to her compassion, “I love helping people live healthier, happier lives” … thriving for the very same things in herself. At 25, no longer willing to discount her own health issues, she began to alter her direction from the medical field to creating a wellness center following her true passions and she shifted careers. Three years after getting certified as a Personal Trainer (2003) and being inspired by notable well-seasoned mentors, she opened BALANCED HEALTH and FITNESS in 2006. This transmigration allowed Genea’s tapping into faucets of wellness including; THETA HEALING, P.P.T.P and other energy and spiritual modalities
Genea recognizes diet is a major part in living a healthy life and is certified in Hair Analysis & Nutritional Balancing. Hair Analysis is a major part of her 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. She is also well versed in Osteoporosis, Diabetes and Thyroid conditions. A healer and mentor, you won’t find a better “Walk your talk kind of gal! She’s constantly evolving her own holistic values and practices as well as utilizing her own experience and healing work with others.

Part of her progress involves being part of a fitness movement teaching health and wellness classes, public speaking and co-hosting health retreats.
