Alejandra Valdez

fitness advocate and founder of viva fit kitchen


A casual day at the zoo in 2016 became Alejandra’s frightening wake-up call. Just a few hours of walking left her feet swollen and unable to move, adding to her pre-diabetic concerns. This was the last straw for her, and she knew what she had to do. It was one of the hardest things she ever had to do, but she did it! She went all in and completely changed her lifestyle by immersing herself in the world of fitness. Eighteen months later, she shed 70 pounds, ran marathons, and found a true passion for nutrition. Alejandra's personal transformation was the spark that led to the creation of Viva Fit Kitchen. Throughout her fitness journey, she realized the importance of meal prepping in maintaining her lifestyle. However, finding consistent time for it was challenging. As she connected with others on similar paths, she found that this time crunch was a common obstacle many faced. Recognizing this, Viva Fit Kitchen emerged as the solution to bridge this gap for those striving for a healthier lifestyle. She intentionally created Viva Fit Kitchen to stand apart from other meal prep services in the area. She combined her family's traditional Mexican recipes and her knowledge of nutrition to create balanced nutritious Latin-flavored meals. Today, she's the force behind Viva Fit Kitchen, ensuring that wellness and culture can deliciously co-exist and be easily accessible to anyone in Omaha, NE, and surrounding areas (with plans to expand nationwide).



Jasmine Torres


Jasmine Torres started her transformative journey transitioning from being 70lbs overweight as a teen, to radiating confidence and strength. It wasn't just the weight loss; it was the profound rebirth of self-belief and a renewed sense of identity that propelled her forward. Touched deeply by the transformative power of fitness in her life, especially after experiencing the unique challenges of motherhood, Jasmine felt a calling to guide other women on similar paths. That is why she created the metabolism mastery secrets for women Facebook group. With over a decade of experience tucked under her belt, Jasmine focuses on natural weight loss and body recomposition. She doesn't believe in short-term fixes; she helps her clients to make sustainable choices that they will actually stick to. Her key advice? "It’s about the journey, not the destination. Fall in love with the journey and the results will come. It’s inevitable."



Mark Will

His coaching method is a unique blend of encouragement with practicality. Mark stands firm in uplifting his clients with affirming words and genuine support. He believes in a well-rounded approach to fitness, integrating Functional Fitness with calisthenics and yoga, backed by a well-balanced diet. He often emphasizes that you can't outwork a poor diet.

Start with baby steps, building habits, and backing it up with top-tier nutrition. Life and fitness are marathons, not sprints. Quick results often fade away. What's crucial is - to remain consistent with a routine that one can sustain in the long run.


Liza Mahon

providing support with the Consistency club

Liza's personal struggles with health misconceptions led her to an epiphany; the real power lies in knowledge and sustainable practices. Frustrated with fad diets and quick-fix solutions that promised much but delivered little, Liza is on a mission: to assure individuals that they are not broken and to instill in them a belief that they deserve to feel fantastic in their own skin. Witnessing both men and women bloom with confidence and energy is what fills her with immense joy and purpose. This passion led her to design the 90-day Metabolic Reset, a unique combination of her FP Eating System and Minimalist Muscle Method. Her program isn't about deprivation; it's about empowering individuals to lose weight, tone up, and amplify their self-assurance, all while indulging in the foods they adore. Liza's approach is realistic, aiming for longevity in one's health journey. Her program is a testament to her belief: food is an ally, not an adversary. She encourages clients to keep it simple, laying emphasis on incremental changes that accumulate into substantial transformations. Her advice? Engage in strength training 3-5 times a week, amp up your daily steps and hydration, ensure quality sleep and recovery, and meet that protein target. After all, it's all about consistent, sustainable habits!
