MAYTAL ZVINGLER - GYM MANAGER | GROUP INSTRUCTOR | PERSONAL TRAINER

My love to fitness started when I was in my teens … I did some track competitions than I came to the states and tried everything else; kickboxing, yoga, conventional gyms, boot camp, cardio barre, spinning and Pilates… I fell in love with Pilates… two years later I got my Pilates certification (2013) and coached little over a year (till the birth of my twin boys). Somewhere along the way I lost my passion…it was a real struggle losing the weight and nothing was working until I was introduced to Interval…. Something about this place got me hooked up and back to the fitness junkie I once was only this time I had a direction. I knew that functional training is my passion. So I trained hard and Roy’s program really worked! I Lost all the weight and got stronger day by day.

Loving it so much led me to get certified through Roys certification program (that was full of valuable information from all the basic functional movements to anatomy, physiology and some injuries and their modifications. I’ve been a coach/ personal trainer for 6 months now and love every moment of it.

I am also the office manager of this gym so any questions/issues you may have … I’m at your service 😇😉

Why I love it so much ? As an athlete… There is so much room to grow, improve and get Better.. as a coach, being a part of someone’s life change, helping them to get the best version of themselves and witnessing the progress is what drives me..it’s inspiring to see what the human body is capable of -if we only put our minds in to it.

ELAD

There are several types of addictions in our lives, The alcohol addict, the drug addict, the gambling addict, etc.

My name is Elad Levy, and I’m a training addict.
I was born in Israel, where I grew up and developed my love for weights at an early age inspired by my family.

At 18 I joined the Army (IDF) and served about 3 years as a special unit fighter. During the military service, the commanders saw me as having the potential to train my team among the operational activities, so I was sent to a combat fitness training course in addition to my role as a fighter.

After the army, I acquired my studies in the fitness field at Wingate Institute in Israel and since then I have started to practice it more professionally.

Interval has always been a part of me long before I joined the coaching staff, because Interval belonged to my uncle, Roy.
Roy contacted me about a year and a half ago on a clear day and asked if I wanted to come and train for him, I immediately agreed and from there everything is history.

Strength is the production of force against an external resistance but being strong is way beyond that, Being strong is the best education one can get.
It is to fall and learn how to rise, it is confidence, it is wisdom, it is compassion, it is a way to find the inner peace and it is incredible physical strength.
Being strong gives me a reason to get up in the morning and defeat the person I was yesterday, a reason to look forward to every day as something brimming with possibility.
But most of all, being strong gives me a reason to live for.

MORGAN

Hello, my name is Morgan! I was originally born in Southern California and raised in both Santa Monica and Pacifica before moving away for college at UC Santa Barbara. I have been enthusiastic about fitness since I was sixteen when I began teaching water aerobics and lifeguarding at Jean E. Brink Pool. Since then, I have worked in the athletic training room for the D1 athletes at UCSB, as a personal trainer in the bay area, and as an assistant in various therapy clinics. Through these experiences, I really found my passion for sports medicine and rehabilitation. With this passion for a healthy lifestyle and the encouragement of one of my aerobics teachers, I went forward to earn my certification in personal training from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

After graduating with a B.S in Biopsychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, I began my career in personal training. In the future, I want to attend graduate school to earn my Masters in Occupational Therapy to continue helping and encouraging people to reach their maximum life potential!
