Emily Deibler, C.P.T.

Mississippi native, Emily Deibler has been involved with sports and fitness from a young age. She began as a competitive gymnast - which eventually led into successful dance and cheer programs that took her through college where she was able to turn that love of sport into a career. Obtaining her Bachelors degree in Exercise Science at the University of Florida was the start. Earning certifications from NASM, ACE, and Precision Nutrition was the next step in giving her the ability to successfully coach clients down the path to their goals. She recognizes that each client’s goals are different and personal and develops a plan personalized to each individual. With both training and nutritional certificates, Emily can offer balanced programs in studio or online.








John Vanderbrink, R.K.C., N.M.T.

Aside from having been involved in the fitness industry for several years and logging numerous hours of “in the trenches” real world experience, I am dedicated to consistent learning and growth in the fields of fitness and nutrition. My philosophy is simple, if it works and gets consistent results for my clients then I use it and if it doesn’t then I eliminate it.

I am one of a handful Russian Kettlebell Certified Trainers in the San Diego Area and also am a practicing Neuromuscular Therapist.

Christine Burke, CPT, HC

Christine Burke Fitness

Christine is a Certified Personal Trainer and certified ACE Health Coach. In addition to private and semi-private personal training, Christine is happy to offer affordable group fitness at San Diego Premier Training, and even some free workouts. She also volunteers as a running coach for InMotion Fit, the official training program for the Carlsbad Marathon and Half.

It surprises most people that Christine has always been terrible at sports, that she was obese in college, and that she couldn't even run one mile. She became more active and lost weight, but continued to hate running into her late thirties. It was then she found out how well running works with pizza and beer. Since then, Christine has run 2 full marathons and over 40 half marathons, which turns out to be a lot of pizza and beer. She also likes lifting heavy stuff and hitting things.

Alex Higley

I began my formal martial arts training at the age of seven, studying Kickboxing under World Champion Kickboxers Marshall Hamil and Danny Grubs. Since then I have trained and competed in MMA, Kickboxing, Judo, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Goju-Ryu Karate, and Boxing. While I am still actively competing as a Professional MMA Fighter and in local Judo tournaments, my true passion is teaching and coaching.

I wrestled at La Costa Canyon High School in 1999 under Coach Dwayne Buth. I have trained with a number of Professional MMA Fighters including: Jason Lambert, Joey Beltran, Thierry Sokoudjou, Jesse Taylor, Jeff Clark, Ryan Bixler, Saul Galindo, Steve Orosco, Nick Ibis, and Russ Edwards.

My mission is to continue to pass on the knowledge that I have gained through my years as a student of martial arts. I love teaching and I look forwarding to coaching more students with a hard work ethic, that are ready to train hard and get in the best shape of their lives.   I feel extremely priviledged to have worked with some of the best coaches in Martial Arts today.
