BIO:
LaTasha Barnes is a 15+ year veteran of the athletic and fitness worlds. Having been sidelined from athletics during her US Army career first by a competition injury and then by a motor vehicle accident as a pedestrian – LaTasha is no stranger to pain, the power of positivity or great achievement. LaTasha worked hard to overcome the functional changes that those events imposed upon her body to become both an elite trainer and a professional urban styles dancer with Urban Artistry dance company. She has created unique programs to meet the need for enhanced fitness and functional training for athletes, busy professionals and those who are “fit living curious”. My purpose is to help guide you to your ideal self through individualized fitness, athletic or total wellness programming. “We’ll help you clarify your Dream, and then Believe with you and guide you to Achieve all that you dream – and more!”


TESTIMONIALS:
“Words cannot describe my mental and physical change and accomplishment this past year working with Latasha. She has made a major impact in my life emotionally with her kindness and friendship and physically with her great workouts and expertise. I was diagnosed with MS over a decade ago and I am so glad that finally I am getting the right help that I should have gotten many years ago.” – R. Zamani, Maryland


“While in DC in October 2011, I received instruction from Tasha & the Imani Wellness crew as a part of my participation of the NAAAHR Conference. While challenging, Tasha’s circuit training workout helped re-invigorate me & caused me to start my own workout regimen at home (based on her circuit training). Tasha was very helpful, knowledgeable & encouraging, not only with the workout but also including some additional clues & guidance to help me meet my goals — since meeting her I have lost 23 lbs!” – K. VanNoy, Tennessee
