About Me

Before becoming a fitness instructor, I spent 23 years in the Navy where I took on several challenging managerial and leadership positions while serving as a naval officer. I became interested in fitness about 10 years into her military career after I applied for an officer position which included completing a rigorous physical examination and training. It was during that time I was diagnosed with hyperlipidemia commonly known as high cholesterol. That was my calling to "Wake Up & Get Active"! With proper nutrition and fitness, I was able to lower my cholesterol and prove that those results would not hinder my ability to perform my duties. As a result, I used my medical diagnosis to fuel my passion to become a personal trainer and founder of LYLA Fitness & Healthy Living! 

As a Personal Trainer and Health Coach, helping people meet their fitness and nutrition goals is Alicia's passion. A retired military officer of 23 years, her overall military experience taught her how to become a leader, manager, educator, and innovator. Alicia wanted to encourage people who could not encourage themselves to stay fit and strong. "I believe being active and eating healthy produces a longer life span. It also reduces cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and hypertension." 

If you are looking to hang out with me, you can catch me around San Diego, CA teaching fitness classes as well as personal training. If you are military, you can catch me training on Naval Base San Diego as a MWR Fitness Instructor. Make sure you check out my "Follow Me" page to find out where I will be teaching next!

Went in for a complimentary session 2wks ago. I'm a fairly fit dude, Lyla hit me with a workout that had me gasping for air. Studio is spacious, clean, parking is ample, and mobile service is provided as well.

"What started as a simple challenge became a change in lifestyle. Alicia is the best personal trainer I have ever worked with. She's hard and dedicated and pulls from your weaknesses and makes them strengths. She has educated me on balance diets, how to truly count calories and prepare balanced meals. Working out with Alicia in the past 7 months I have shed 32 pounds. My jeans have went from a 42 waist to a 36, I went from wearing a XXL shirt to XL. Progress has been great. The workout classes are fun and exciting. Alicia's motivation is amazing. She keeps it fun and its a physical and mental stimulation. Working out with L.Y.L.A fitness is one of the beat things I could have done for me personally and for my family. Thank you L.Y.L.A. FITNESS!!!!"
