Trainers At This Studio

Donna Armosino

Facility Manager 

Rancho Bernardo, CA 

Donna grew up in Chicago and later moved to Southern California. Her parents always encouraged her to stay active and she enthusiastically took their advice and parcicipated in a wide variety of activities including softball, volleyball, gymnastics, and running. Running was one of her passions and, after a diligent training program, Donna went on to complete the Chicago marathon. That determination to achieve her goal, was one of her first steps in becoming a Personal Trainer. 

Donna has always been enthusiastic about exercise and nutrition and she began to make it part her professional life by becoming a certified yoga instructor. She also continued her running and went on to complete numerous other races including two more marathons and two half marathons. 

As a runner she began to feel like her knees were getting weaker. Fortunately, she discovered slow-motion strength training and has seen significant results. “I just love this workout. When I implemented it, my knees have improved so much that I have been able to run long distances again without pain.” 

Donna quickly learned more about all the benefits of slow-motion strength training and changed her workouts to two weekly training sessions. With her highly active background and personal success with the method, Donna felt like helping others make the same switch felt like an exciting career move. She later found out about The Perfect Workout through a friend who worked for the company and knew she would be a great fit. 

In 2013, Donna joined The Perfect Workout team and began training clients in the Rancho Bernardo studio. She is thrilled to have found a workout and career that brings so much positivity to other people’s lives. “I really enjoy being a part of my clients’ fitness journey especially when they achieve their goals.”  

When one of Donna’s clients, Deborah Haight first joined The Perfect Workout, her goal was to lose 90 pounds. After working with Donna and the Rancho Bernardo team, one year later she achieved her goal of losing 90 pounds and feels and looks absolutely amazing!! “I love being a part of her transformation and in the process I made a life-long friend. Many of my clients have become friends -- I love all of them.” 

With successes like Deborah’s, it was inevitable that Donna’s career would advance and she became the Facility Manager of Rancho Bernardo in 2015. “ I always hoped to manage the studio.  I worked hard and learned everything from my previous managers.” To this day, Donna is leading the team and loving every minute of it. 

“I love leading and guiding the other trainers! The trainers here are my family and I want to make sure they are successful both here in the studio and outside of the studio. I want to create future managers. I enjoy watching them learn and grow.” She prides herself on creating a wonderful and energetic environment in the studio where she and her team can work well together and provide their clients the best possible experience.” I will always be there for my team and my clients!” 

Now that her knees are stronger than ever, Donna is running towards new goals. “My goal is to run the Rock’n Roll marathon in San Diego.” She loves to keep up with her running, as well as biking, hiking with her kids, and taking vacations to beautiful destinations! 

Genesis Feliciano

Personal Trainer

Rancho Bernardo, CA

Genesis Feliciano was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, and came to the US mainland when she was 10 years old. In hear early adulthood she was fascinated by learning about health and how to maintain it as we age.  She discovered slow-motion strength training and the extensive benefits it produced. Her passion for health led her to acquire a personal training certification and join The Perfect Workout. She is thrilled to be helping others become healthier, more energized and get stronger at the Rancho Bernardo studio.

Within her first 9 months of utilizing slow-motion strength training, Genesis put on 15 pounds of lean muscle mass, a challenge many women face. In addition to her own successes, Genesis has been helping many of the Rancho Bernardo clients achieve their goals, big and small. One of her clients, Patricia, joined The Perfect Workout unhappy with her weight and the way she looked. After only 2 months of training together, Genesis had lost 15 pounds and was thrilled with how she looked. 

Having tools to show clients all the ways in which they can make progress is one of the perks of working with a Personal Trainer at The Perfect Workout. “I consider my clients friends, and it’s amazing seeing the excitement of your friend reaching their goals.”

Having worked in a gym for 4 years prior to joining The Perfect Workout, Genesis feels a huge difference in the positive environment at The Perfect Workout. “I swear, we’ve got the BEST team. We all love, respect and care for one another. It’s like having a family to spend time with daily.”

Matthew Pyles

Personal Trainer

Rancho Bernardo, CA

Coach, Special Education Teacher and Personal Trainer, Matthew Pyles has learned valuable tools to patiently and creatively help his clients achieve their goals. Sports have always been a big part of Matthew’s life and he has personally worked towards staying in shape for as long as he could remember.

Matthew learned about slow-motion strength training back in high school and has used it ever since. “To this day, I have never been injured lifting weights.” He knows that this is uncommon in the fitness world where many high-intensity workouts lead to injury. Which is why it’s one of the reasons he is excited to be teaching this method to others. Having trained people throughout college, coached sports, and taught special education, Matthew knew he would always be teaching in some facet.

He felt like fitness was a space where he deeply connected with others, so he pursued personal training as a career.  Matthew has been able to bring his many teaching skills to his training at The Perfect Workout. 

“It’s been a life changing experience for me. I’ve seen people in here do things they never thought they could do. Whether that be pushing over 250 pounds on the leg press when it seemed impossible to push 200. I’ve had guys in their 50’s gain the ability to do pull ups for the first time ever in life.”

As a teacher and coach, helping others is truly part of who Matthew is and he gets a great deal of satisfaction knowing he’s impacting his clients. “I give and receive love and kindness from everyone in all the studios I’ve worked at. Both trainers and clients are genuinely happy here!.”

Matthew looks forward to working with more and more clients, and to continuing to learn and grow himself, at The Perfect Workout!

Aurelio Rosas

Personal Trainer

Rancho Bernardo & Carlsbad, CA

Originally from North San Diego, Aurelio Rosas attended California State University East Bay where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology. Having been in love with strength training since high school, Aurelio decided to combine a love of fitness and his fascination with people’s motivational triggers into  a career as a Personal Trainer. He joined The Perfect Workout in the S.F. Bay Area and later transferred down to Rancho Bernardo where he trains today. 

Having the opportunity to work with clients 1-on-1 is one of Aurelio’s favorite aspects about being a Personal Trainer at The Perfect Workout. “My client has 100% of my attention and that really allows me to hone in on their form and what their needs for that particular day are. I believe it really brings value to their training session.”

Aurelio also values the emphasis that The Perfect Workout puts on safety while exercising, and truly believes that slow-motion strength training can work for anyone. “It is a great feeling to be told you were an integral part in changing someone’s life for the better, especially when they didn’t think it was possible.”

In his free time, Aurelio likes to enjoy the company of his family and friends. Outside of strength training, his biggest interest is cars, specifically, classic American muscle cars. One of his dreams in life is to restore a classic of his own one day.
