    Aloha! My name is Lonn Iwashita and I am originally from Honolulu, Hawaii. Fitness has always been a part of my life through my involvement in a variety of sports. Through sports, I became passionate about all aspects of health as well as how the human body functions. I would always try to find out new training methods to find competitive gains to overcome any personal weaknesses. I had to find out what type of method was the most beneficial to me. From this I have learned over the years that everyone responds to health differently, both psychologically and physiologically, meaning, that there is not a set health or fitness plan that fits all people. I want to help guide individuals to reach their specific goals and to be the best version of himself or herself. I believe the best project you’ll ever work on is yourself. Your health is worth the investment and I believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a long and healthy life if they choose.

    in my free time I like to
    Thank you for allowing me to help you take your will and turn it into a way towards a healthier you.

I've worked with close to 100 general population clients, and over 300 athletes. Mostly high school level hockey players, and a few junior league players. I am looking forward to helping a lot more people accomplish their fitness goals. Especially here at Fitness Together. From my experience working at six other gyms, I totally think Fitness Together offers the best experience for their members and trainers. Communication, hospitality, and the success of accomplishing goals here is far greater then the other gyms I have worked at. By far my favorite work environment since I started training.

  • Devante Erlansen, Fitness Coach - Personal Trainer

    Years of Experience

    • 7 Years

    Credentials

    • Pre-Script Level 1 Certification

    My name is Devante Erlandsen. I am a father to some amazing little boys, I have the most supportive wife a man could ask for, and of course, I love to skateboard & train! At 18 years old I decided it is time for change, I joined the US Army as a combat engineer. I loved being a soldier, and all that came with it for the most part. That all quickly ended when I injured my back pretty badly, the doctors had to tell me I was not going to be able to lift weights or skateboard again. So I learned all I could from a functional medicine doctor who took me in as a mentee. This cascaded into me making a full recovery where I can now skateboard, lift weights, and be the goofy dad with my kids I knew I could be. This all lit a spark of needing to learn more, so I then could go and help others with the knowledge I am learning. Went to college at Hamline University studying Exercise Science, a certification from Pre-Script, owning my own business to help skateboarders like myself.

    in my free time I like to
    Skateboarding, hiking, movies, nature, dogs, cats, music

    Hi! My name is Emily and I grew up playing almost every sport I could - I started with gymnastics but stuck with diving throughout college.

I have trained various levels of clients between doing biomechanics research, cardiac rehabilitation, collegiate coaching, senior fitness, and physical therapy rehabilitation. I enjoy getting to know each person I work with and help them find exercise to be enjoyable and/or rewarding.
