Peace and Blessings,

Hi, I’m Raven Burnes, founder of Grown Folks Fitness. I offer wellness coaching with a spiritual mind/body approach. With my one-on-one coaching (live or online) you will develop a personalized plan that will empower you take charge of your own health and fitness. I also offer personal training sessions if you live in the Los Angeles County area.

I have been working out and studying fitness since I was fourteen years old. I used to watch early morning exercise shows before I went to school. I was obsessed with the idea of being strong and powerful, like the fitness ladies on TV. Now, over 30 years later, I want to help others live a life free of ill health, premature aging, poor body-image, negative self-talk, feeling stuck, and all the other emotions that come feeling not-your-best. Age is just a number. Whoever you want to be is up to you!

I am a Certified Personal Trainer, and Certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition, through the National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF), and the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), respectively. I have a Master’s Degree in Metaphysical Sciences. And I am a Reverend, ordained by the Wisdom of the Hearth Church in Arcata, California. I have been meditating for over 15 years. The wisdom and peace this practice has brought to my life cannot be overstated.

The goal is not to control life – or other people. The goal is to control the mind. Then, the world and its problems can never rob you of your peace. If you’re ready to set and reach your goals in the areas of fitness, nutrition, health, spirituality, and stress-relief, please contact me today for more information.
