 Coach Linda Manila


Linda Manila Linda Manila has been a fan of fitness since childhood. Her father trained in Muay Thai and she remembers working out with him as part of her culture and to emulate his discipline and focus. In addition to martial arts, Linda has participated in numerous forms of exercise including pilates, yoga, zumba, strength and conditioning, and even run a half marathon. She likes to work out not to be skinny or look good, but because she likes to be strong, have stamina, and to see what her body can do. Training at the Academy brings with it a sense of belonging and being part of an impressive and varied coaching staff has encouraged her to keep learning and allowed her to improve consistently.


A busy working mother of two young energetic boys, Linda understands the challenge of juggling work, home, and exercise but finds it is a great stress release and self-defense training gives her confidence and a sense of safety. She has become a coach because she loves to see people succeed and build on each little success!fitness workouts
