Radiating warmth and positivity, Bianca embodies the heart and soul of NAKOA. Growing up on the island of Kauai, constantly outdoors, playing sports and with an insurmountable amount of energy, Bianca approaches fitness not as a hobby, but as a way of life. Her philosophy is all around balance, the work you do inside the gym keeps your body strong and healthy for everything that you love to do outside the gym. Don’t be fooled by her easy smile or infectious laugh, this little power pack dishes up her aloha spirit with a serious side ass kicking. It’s not what you want, it’s what you work for she says.
Bianca is also the program director for our Fire and Police Tactical Strength and Injury Prevention Program. Together with our Physical Therapy Director, Allison Nelson, she has created a comprehensive, one of a kind, wellness program like no other. This program is designed purely around strengthening, balancing, and eliminating pain and injury from the everyday lives of our first responders through detailed assessments, testing, educational injury prevention workshops, and strength and conditioning training programs. Aside from drastically improving the quality of life as well as the operational readiness of firefighters and police officers, this program also seeks to drastically reduce the funds spent by departments on medical costs, injury rehabilitation and workers compensation.
Whatever Bianca is focusing on, she always finds a way to make people enjoy themselves while feeling connected and cared for. Her energy, passion, and true dedication to the success of everyone around her translates into a never-ending stream of motivation and inspiration and success for everyone else to feed off of.
