THEONA O’BRIEN

VP, FITNESS PROGRAMS

Theona is a founding member of EliteFitnessNow.com. She is a lifelong athlete participating in surfing, skateboarding, gymnastics, martial arts, bodybuilding, and yoga. Theona has experimented with a variety of common and uncommon methods of training. Her inspiration was driven in part by the day Lisa Gibbs extended an invitation to train with her in her personal gym. Within a month Theona’s strength, speed, power, agility and athleticism improved dramatically. After several months her training performance excelled beyond her expectations. At that moment Theona knew that she had to find a way to make this type of training accessible to the world. It was then that she and Lisa decided to create EliteFitnessNow.com and make professional athlete training available to everyone.

Theona loves teaching. She has taught surfing and paddle boarding for 5 years. She has a passion for helping others achieve their fitness goals throughout their lifetime, as well as inspiring others to work towards becoming the best version of themselves.
