The Best Trainers

Cortni Joyner

Cortni was a natural athlete and grew up playing soccer. She was an all-SEC midfielder at the University of Georgia before spending 3 years in the W-League with the Atlanta Silverbacks. After moving to LA in 2010, she found herself struggling to recreate the competitive atmosphere of the soccer world. More importantly, she needed to find a training regimen that wouldn't bore her to tears. Enter Crossfit. "I used to watch the other sports on campus (at UGA) and steal little bits and pieces of their workouts, put them together and create my own workouts. Crossfit was like that, times one hundred. What made it even better was the community and being able to train in a team environment again." Cortni's goal is to bring her enthusiasm and experience as an athlete onto the coaching floor. She believes when her clients feel safe and comfortable in their environment, they are able to push themselves more – physically and mentally. She loves seeing members hit PR’s and learn new movements. CERTIFICATIONS: Crossfit Level 1, CrossFit Weightlifting Course, M.S.

Rush Kemp

Rush is a Certified Coach and Personal Trainer. He made some major life changes in 2013 by moving to Los Angeles to begin his career as a professional in the Fitness Industry. Fitness has been a point of interest since he was 6 years old when he used to watch his mother compete in power lifting meets. He began to research and learn about muscle development and healthy living. Before officially becoming a trainer, Rush trained his friends and family on the side for years and this brought him to the conclusion that he needed to have a career in fitness. He wanted to spend his time helping others discover their true physical potential. What matters most to Rush is to create a lasting connection with his clients as he helps them to their various fitness goals.

Luci Eisen

Luci first discovered Crossfit in 2010 when she had a roommate who became quickly obsessed with the sport during their stay together. She saw the pictures, the videos, the competitions, and felt inspired but didn't think it was something SHE could ever do. Since she was never an athlete growing up, the confidence that something like this was possible for her to be good at - just wasn't there yet. She continued to hit the local gym day after day, with no guidance, no real goal in mind, just in the never-ending journey "to be thin". Finally, July 2011 she decided to try it and it changed her life. It changed her perception of beauty, it made her want to be stronger and faster, and she quickly discovered her desire to change the lives of others. After one very humbling year, Luci completed her Level 1 and has only strived to grow and become better in her coaching ever since.

Gunther Klaus

A Los Angeles native, Gunther has been an avid athlete since the age of 8.  In high school, he found a passion and strength for mid-distance running and then advanced to Division 1 Rowing at Oregon State.  After college, in searching for something to fulfill his desire to compete, he found bodybuilding. Although it was a nice stepping stone, bodybuilding didn't satisfy his hunger for the fast pace and thrill of competition. After seeing several social media clips of top Crossfit competitors, Gunther knew he had to see what this sport was all about. In January of 2015, he stepped into his first Crossfit box. Gunther is a natural at finding ways to help others move towards their goals. He embraces every chance to do research and gain knowledge to help each individual build their strength and conquer their weakness. Also a personal trainer at Equinox, Gunther brings a fresh perspective to the Crossfit community.

Carlos Figueroa

My career began actually working on my own health and weight challenges. My unique training approach and attention to detail are the foundation of my personal training success.  I utilize over 6 years of experience in the industry, as well as an extensive military and educational background to provide an expert level of training services. My beginnings are humble. A combination of highly volatile family situations and a dynamic military life routinely forced me to change schools in several different countries growing up. As a result, making friends was impossible, leading to me being further bullied throughout my teen years until I went to college.  I was the kid with no friends, the kid who ran and hid in the journalism classroom during lunch so I wouldn’t have to face the horrors of sitting alone in the cafeteria, the kid who was often times terrified of even going home. I was the “loser.” That was a long time ago.  As an adult, I’ve manifested positivity and enormous strength from those miserable years.  Now I’m in the unique position of being able to relate to and help people from a wide range of backgrounds achieve their goals, having now worked with over 500 athletes and clients.

Rodiney Santiago

Most people know Rodiney as a reality television personality, model, actor, and performer, but that’s not where his passion for fitness began. Long before the career in modeling, he already had a burgeoning career in the Health & Fitness Industry. As a model, it was Rodiney’s job to remain “camera-ready”, but to him this was the easiest part of the job, because he always had a true love for staying fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As he began working out more and more with friends, he realized how much he loved sharing his knowledge of fitness. It’s very much a spiritual thing for him to see them transform their bodies and become healthier and happier - and to be on that journey with them. Rodiney’s training philosophy is centered around the idea that it is equally important to stay mentally centered, as well as physically fit. As a Certified Personal Trainer he wants nothing more than to inspire people to work out, stay fit, healthy, enjoy life, and share love. If his actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then that’s how Rodiney defines success.
