My name is Briana Maniscalco and I’m a personal trainer here at Platinum Fitness. I firmly believe that you’re either growing or you’re decaying; life is in constant motion and there is no such thing as stagnancy. Fitness and health has been my passion since I first stepped into a gym at 16 years old. I was afraid, uncomfortable and I didn’t know where to begin. I was never looked at as a small petite female, I took on my father’s physique; tall, wide shoulders, big legs. I have since been researching on my own, taking notes and bringing it to the gym with me until I became comfortable. I pushed myself every day, stepped out of my comfort zone and held myself accountable until it became apart of my day and apart of who I am.<br /><br />“Success is not just about what you have done, it’s about what you inspire others to do.” I’m currently in school pursuing a degree in the medical field. I’ve changed my major from Physicians Assistant to Pediatrics to a Nurse Anesthetist and ever since I can remember I’ve always had a caring nature and a passion for helping people. I’m currently finishing multiple certifications and I’m excited to continue to grow and develop my knowledge in the fitness field. Success to me means I have inspired and left an impact on at least ONE person throughout their journey and nothing is more fulfilling than seeing someone achieve their goals or reduce their suffering. My number one goal is to climb up this mountain along side each and every client and lead by example. I’m not afraid to put in the work and I’m excited to show you how mentally and physically strong you really are.
