UCI Campus Recreation - Personal Trainer Janina Emery


I am originally from Fresno, California and I graduated high school in 2016. I am now currently an undergraduate Biology student at UC Irvine; I also plan on joining the Exercise Science B.S. degree program in the future.


Certified Personal Trainer; International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA)
American Heart Association Adult First Aid/CPR/AED Certified


I was raised in a household that always emphasized the importance of staying healthy and fit. I grew up playing volleyball from fifth grade until I graduated high school and I still have a very strong passion for it to this day. I have also coached multiple 12-13 year old girls volleyball competitive club teams as well as train others for sports specific exercises and movement.


I am very passionate about helping others work to achieve their unique fitness goals and providing knowledge and constant support. I have always had a strong love for exercise and staying active and I enjoy being able to pass that same passion onto other people. When I am not in the gym or at school, I love spending the day in the sun at the beach, participating in sorority events, shopping, or even just taking a nap with my cats.


Exercise has always been very therapeutic to me and a great way to destress when life gets tough. Staying active has many health and positive self-image benefits, however I always strive to help clients see the mental benefits of it. With that said, it is much easier to see improvement and achieve goals that you set for yourself when you are motivated and look forward to each and every workout.
