BO TINAZA BS, CSCS, CPT,
I was an athlete growing up. I became interested in sports performance (strength and conditioning programs) to better enhance my athletic ability in 8th grade (mainly db curls at that point haha). I learned some concepts while in high school weightlifting class and ever since then have been studying fitness, nutrition, and psychology. After injuries derailed my collegiate athletic career i found out about the kinesiology (exercise science) program while attending Western Washington University. I ended up attaining my bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a minor in Sports Psychology. After declining an offer to join a collegiate sports performance program as a strength and conditioning coach i moved back to the thurston county area and opened fitness ablaze (in my garage) in 2012.
I am a firm believer in the power of human performance for both physical and mental improvements. I believe we all should invest in ourselves through fitness and nutrition. The only results that will come is a more physically fit, mentally fit, and happier version of yourself. It is all about self love. We all deserve it:)
I have over 10 year of experience as a fitness and nutrition coach and continue to improve my craft as a fitness professional through continuing education. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA. Certified Personal Trainer through ACE. Certified Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition. I was also co-author of a best selling book and 2014 Americas Premier Experts recipient.
