Who Am I?

I’m Caila Zappala, your Pregnancy Safe Elite Coach. Recently relocated to Charlotte, NC from New York City.. I am extremely passionate about remaining active & eating healthy through all life’s challenges! The mental and physiological benefits are endless. However, I love chocolate almost as much as I love movement. I am a firm believer in a balanced lifestyle, one that includes an occasional chocolate bar paired with some functional exercise..all things that are good for the soul! 


While I certainly specialize in the pre/postnatal population, my group and corporate fitness classes are designed for all bodies at all levels!


I aim for all my clients to learn how to first use their core properly via their breath.. and then to gain muscle memory that helps them achieve their fitness goals effortlessly!
