MANDI GARCIA

Experienced corporate wellness strategist, fitness expert and canine advocate.

An Exercise Physiologist, licensed Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist and Nutrition Coach, Mandi provides consultative services, evidence-based programming and health promotion events for both corporate and individual engagements. Previous clients include various Fortune 500 companies in the sectors of aviation, insurance, food and beverage and telecommunications.

Her core philosophy towards health and well-being lies within bio-individuality and teaching others how to listen intuitively to their bodies. Her greatest teaching objective is illustrating how each dimension of human wellness is intertwined and how that relates to one’s ability to achieve long-term success. Her specialty areas include athletic performance, weight loss, corrective/mobility-based exercise and holistic nutrition with a focus on gut health and inflammatory conditions.

In her “down time,” Mandi is pursuing her Master of Science degree in Nutrition and Human Performance from Logan University. She is also an ambassador for Morris Animal Foundation and her own charity, Team W.A.G.- Maggie’s Legacy. She loves any opportunity to promote the human-animal bond while educating humans on how to best help their dogs live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.
