Anna Melliza – Personal Trainer

Anna has been a client at FVT for 11 years. She has enjoyed leading an active lifestyle her whole life. From a young age, she regularly rode horses, and in recent years participated in dressage competitions. Dressage, an English style of riding, is a form of training designed to strengthen and supple the horse and human through a series of progressions over time, much like the type of training offered for individuals at FVT. Through dedicated training for BOTH Anna and her horse, Anna won first place in her class at the Northern California Regional Adult Amateurs Championships.

Anna decided to take her passion for fitness to the next level, obtaining her NASM Personal Trainer certification. She enjoys leading clients through FVT workouts and helping them to become stronger, in both body and mind, while having fun doing it.

Anna also likes cycling, hiking, and kickboxing in her spare time and believes that she is stronger at those activities because of her workouts at the gym! She is excited about sharing her experience, knowledge, and skills to help others achieve their fitness goals.

Jonathan Masaki Shiroma – Personal Trainer

If Jonathan looks familiar to you there’s a good reason. For many years, he was a T-V news reporter/anchor here in Sacramento, first at Good Day Sacramento followed by News 10.

Jonathan put his TV career on hold for a few years when as a California Army National Guard Soldier he spent close to three years deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and then Operation Enduring Freedom. Upon his return from his two deployments, Jonathan retired from broadcast news but found a new passion in the fitness industry.

He took classes from AFAA and Todd Durkin and certified as a group exercise and boot camp instructor.

A native of Hawai’I, Jonathan is excited to be part of the team here at Forest Vance Training and promises a mix of military style exercises mixed in with the spirit of Aloha at each boot camp class he leads.
