Alex Ramirez, Since I was a child I have always been physically active. My parents had me try a wide variety of sports like karate, basketball, soccer and baseball. My passion fell with karate and basketball. By the age of ten I had earned a black belt in Korean Karate and was regional champion in several tournaments. I really enjoyed playing Basketball and for 6 years I was on the Goleta All-star team, where we competed in tournaments all throughout California. During this time of sports activity I began to learn about athleticism, endurance, hard work and discipline. It wasn't until my early twenties, where I stumbled upon resistance training and I found my true calling as personal trainer.

I did not get serious about exercise until I started weight training with a friend. He introduced me to weight lifting and I instantly became addicted to exercise. As a result I wanted to learn more about the mind, body and nutrition and through International Sports Science Association; I earned a certificate as an ISSA Certified Trainer and Nutritionist. My eagerness to gain knowledge about all forms of fitness training has not waivered. I am constantly challenging my mind & body on trying all methods of training like yoga, cross fit, Pilates, stadiums, beach training, bicycling, sport specific training, plyometrics, agility, meditation and stretching, so that I can share with all my clients what I have learned.

I'm inviting you to come train with me and gain from my knowledge and passion about physical fitness. I take great pride in helping men and women of all ages and fitness levels to become successful in obtaining their fitness goals. I offer nutrition advice and group circuit training classes that help promote muscular strength and maximum fat loss. I also have private and semi private sessions with clients who require more attentive instruction and more focused fitness goals. I encourage you to get in touch with me today and begin your path to fitness success.

Nancy Eckert, As a young athlete Nancy played softball at the highest levels. Her roots started with Goleta Girls Softball Association then on to travel (A) ball and four years of Varsity at Dos Pueblos, before going to Cal Poly SLO to play college ball. She found a professional pitching coach early on and her dad was willing to make the drive from Goleta to Irvine to take regular lessons. That was life changing.

Nancy's teaching background in elementary school education and years of coaching experience, combined with a pure love of softball make her a very different kind of coach. My clients and team parents consistently reflect this. Process over outcome is a constant objective.

SB Tide club softball started in 2004. Teams are designed to give girls the ability to play for professional non-parent female coaches who focus on the kids development over anything else. The older teams (14u and up) are additionally focused on competing in the travel ball arena and on keeping the doors open for those that wish to play college ball. SB Tide works together with other softball organizations to maximize impact.

SB Tide supports kids who chose to play multiple sports as that variety is essential for their longevity in any one sport, and the physical aspects of cross training are significant in their overall skill development.

Coach Dayne, Dayne's passion for ridding people of limiting self-beliefs stems from the overwhelming insecurity and fear he lived with, growing up. Dayne's driving force is helping others live a life of confidence and passion – eliminating the acceptance of mediocrity and the victim's mentality. He wakes up every morning at 4:00, as an example for his daughter, proving that whatever we want in life is dictated by our willingness to sacrifice, embrace struggle, and never quit. Dayne's a former professional athlete, now teaching the 1% Mindset – turning obstacles into confidence, focusing on what you think and choose to believe. He grew up dreaming of becoming a professional basketball player, but chose professional tennis, instead – a choice made out of fear and doubt in his basketball abilities. Having missed out on multiple opportunities due to fear of failure, he's committed himself to the pursuit of fearlessness, vowing to help everyone who needs a push in that same direction.

Victoria Peterburgsky Williamson, Born and raised in former Russia Azerbaijan Baku. I immigrated to CA in 1987. Since arriving to the USA, I've had nostalgia for real bread that was the main staple in Russia. My daughter, Julie Tseselsky noticed that I can’t digest the local bread and switched to gluten free. That inspired me to start experimenting with gluten free flowers.

I've found that spelt also known as Faro - ancient grain can be digested even by gluten free diet.  Today I sprout it, ferment it and bake 1.5 pound healthy loafs and offer it to public to enjoy. It is very healthy bread.

Baking bread has became my passion.

I'm also trained in Physical therapy and like to paint.


Victoria Juarez, grew up surrounded by cotton fields in the small farming community of Kettleman City, California. She attended public school in the San Joaquin Valley and left for college in Southern California immediately after high school. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in History from Cal State Long Beach, she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Cheboksary, Russia (she wanted to change the world!) and traveled abroad for a number of years. She discovered that parents all over the world want the same things for their children: education, healthcare and a world without war. Her travels helped her appreciate America's abundance and opportunity. "Every day, all over the world, people dream of coming to America," she said. "They think of us in the villages of Kenya and dachas of Russia because our actions, sooner or later, affect them." She has never forgotten being told: "We think of Americans every day, but you never think of us, you don't even know we exist." She never forgets, in her role as the Executive Director of Girls Inc. Carpinteria, that she and her staff are preparing the next generation of leaders who will impact the world far beyond their local community.

She brings nearly two decades of community and nonprofit experience to her position. Victoria is interested in creating opportunities and resources for girls to learn and grow, to navigate the unique challenges they face growing up, and to discover their potential as leaders with the courage and vision to change the world (inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold).

Victoria, in addition to her BA, holds a Masters degree in Public Administration from Cal State Long Beach, and a certificate in Finance and Administration from Cal State Fullerton. She lives in Santa Barbara with her husband and son. .
