Kamini R. FONSECA

Athlete

Exercise Physiologist

Upon graduating from Springfield College with a BS in Exercise Physiology and a minor in Nutrition, she relocated to Washington. While in Boston her professional concentration was on training athletes within their specific sports. By working with the retired population, the physically disabled and children, Kamini was able to dedicate some of her skill and time to the community, which is important to her. Kamini's reputation for brilliant program design lead to involvement in the creation of the United States Naval Fitness Training Program.

When she arrived in Seattle, she shifted her focus to Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy while remaining active in the Personal Training Circuit. With 20+ combined years of competition and professional experience, and an unquenchable thirst for science and better understanding of fully encompassing wellness came the creation of Lifestyle Engineering, Inc., a wellness service company and Alpine Activities™, an outdoor fitness training and adventure activities company. Kamini’s unique view of the components to Wellness make each session with her time well spent, if you are looking for options, fun and knowledge to name a few benefits.
