Gabi has been surrounded by the athletic lifestyle since her parents put her in soccer at the age of 5. Her passion grew throughout high school and into college ball. Off season weightlifting and in season conditioning was an everyday routine. 5am mile runs for breakfast, speed tests, weights for lunch and an ice bath for dinner as she would explain it! Training hard for what she wanted was a never ending cycle.
This eventually lead her to achieve the opportunity to play all over Europe.
While finishing up the season in London, her family opened up their very own gym in New Jersey. Continuing her training from the off season, she veered into a pathway to teach others how to become faster, stronger, and more powerful. From the help of her mentor (stepfather) Mike Medrano, former MMA fighter & current celebrity personal trainer, brought Gabi under his wing to understand what it takes to run a gym and personally train clients.
Gabi still to this day continues to personally train others to be the best version of themselves. Competition has always been in her blood and to be able to bring that same drive out in her clients is all she could ask for. “You have the power to choose what kind of life you want to live, I’m just here to guide you through it!”
