We had a chance to sit down and talk with HannaH Marie Howerton, a local fitness trainer / nutrition coach and so much more! With Thanksgiving just around the corner the “Holidays” will be here before you know it. We were intrigued by HannaH’s Holiday Challenge where she says, ” You CAN enjoy the holidays and land happily in January with NO REGRETS”.
FresYes: So tell us, who are you and what do you do?
HannaH: I am a Certified Fitness and Nutrition Coach with a focus on self-empowerment and healthy living. I am also an avid music junkie, and my clients love to jam out while we train.
I use strength training to help clients look great and feel great as we tap into their inner grit. We have more strength within us than we realize!
I help people find freedom in movement so they can fall in love with fitness.
As far as food— Clients and I work together to build meals and snacks they can savor daily and that keep the body working at its best, inside and out.
Since people often see the obstacles in the way, my job is to prove that you can train like a champ no matter what you have going on in life.
FresYes: That’s awesome! Where do you do all this?
HannaH: Synergy Personal Training and Fresno Athletic Training Center!
Right here on Blackstone just south of Shaw is the iconic building that’s always been a gym, formerly Dan Gamel’s racquetball club.
I love that our facility has so much to choose from, from your standard gym equipment to brand new athletic gear! Our gym feels like family, and it’s never too crowded to find belonging. There is nothing like it in Fresno!
I also offer remote consultations for nutrition that are only a phone call away!
FresYes: Describe the type of client you work with.
HannaH: My ideal client wants to learn how to lift weights and use nutrition strategically to reach the specific fitness goal he or she has. If you need stress management and lifestyle hacks in that mix, I’m your Coach!!
Many of my clients want to lose weight, show off lean muscle, feel stronger in daily activities, and make healthy eating easy.
As well, if you want to overcome chronic illness barriers—I got you!
FresYes: What makes you different than any other personal trainer?
HannaH: Practical WISDOM and ACCOUNTABILITY!
A colleague once called me a “wealth of knowledge,” because I TEACH you, the client, how to tailor nutrition, activity, and rest to reach YOUR individual goal.
I also offer a lot—custom workouts, nutrition, measurements and tracking, behavior change coaching, muscle recovery tips, and 24/7 phone support—call or text me anytime!
To stay on track, we FOCUS on ONE GOAL AT A TIME. Once we master that, we move to goal #2. Before you know it, you have mastered all the small steps and earned your ultimate reward 💪– HannaH
FresYes: That sounds like a road to success! So with the busy holiday season around the corner, how can people stay fit and healthy while enjoying the festivities?
HannaH: That’s where HannaH’s Holiday Challenge fits perfectly!
I created this challenge as a chance to prove that you CAN enjoy the holidays and land happily in January with NO REGRETS—nothing to “undo”!
I hold you accountable to four days a week of empowering exercise—whatever fits YOUR body best—and healthy eating daily.
Because JOY is part of “health,” I lead my clients away from restriction. Instead, we focus on savoring “most of the time foods” and enjoying sweet treats in moderation.
The best part is—participants win a prize at the end!
FresYes: How fun! So what would you say to those who aren’t sure they are ready?
HannaH: JUST GET STARTED!
As humans, we have this false belief that we must hit the ground running.
When you walk into the gym, you don’t have to jump into 20 Burpees. Just start walking on the treadmill!
From there, you build momentum, and your motivation rises. Everything else falls into place as I guide you the whole way.
All you have to do is reach out! A friendly conversation is how we will start.
FresYes: This sounds exciting! How can people find you to learn more about it?
FresYes: Great. Anything else you would like readers to know?
HannaH: For those of you who say you’re not ready, or you can’t afford it, or you don’t need help—you have nothing to lose by reaching out! We all can benefit from each other, and my goal is to help you live and feel your best.
Who knows? Like many of my clients, you may find your life changed for the better!
