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’s inspiring to see what the human body is capable of -if we only put our minds in to it.

Previously, Michael had achieved his 2nd degree Black Belt under the instruction & mentorship of Jerry “Fast Feet” Fontanez. For 10 years, Michael taught at all 5 of the Fontanez Karate schools all throughout New York.

My name is Tali Azar. I’m 24 years old and moved to Los Angeles two years ago from Israel- Ramat Gan.
Since I was 4 years old, I had a great passion for gymnastics and participated in many important competitions.

I began my crossfit training at interval strength & conditioning about 6 months ago. It took me only a few days of training to realize that I have found something that I am strongly motivated for and love to do!
I currently hold a primary personal trainer & CPR certification. As well I have completed 100 hours of Roy’s internship program.
I believe that in every single person there is a great athlete waiting to come out and I believe an important part of my coaching is to guide, protect, and nurture my clients.


Hey y’all my name is John Ivy. I am originally from the great state of Texas. Since I was young I loved anything involved with athletics. I started Crossfit when I was deployed to Iraq and I have enjoyed it ever since. After my six-year contract was completed I traveled across the United States living in different cities. Some of the cities I lived in were Atlanta, San Francisco, and Austin. Soon after moving out to Los Angeles I got married to a wonderful woman named Ashley. After receiving my Crossfit level One certification I was ecstatic about my new professional career as a fitness coach. I couldn’t wait to hit the ground running, but the only problem was trying to find a place to get started. This is when I met Coach Roy from Interval. He sat down me with over coffee and I was able to tell him how much fitness meant to me professionally and personally. Fitness to me isn’t about rock hard six pack abs, or how good you look in a bikini. Fitness to me is about the ability to have a positive impact on someone and make them do things they never thought possible. Even if their mission in life at that moment is to be to play with their kids or grandkids. That is why I am happy to be a part of the Interval family, I see everyone here smiling, laughing and having a great time all the while prolonging their lives through fitness.
