I believe that when you’re healthy in mind, body and spirit, you can achieve anything. In fact, I’ve made it my personal mission to live this way and have incorporated those concepts into my program.
1) Create a community of Empowerment and Accountability.
2) Rest. Take the time to rest your mind, body and spirit.
3) Positive Thinking. We are what we think and tell ourselves. Feed your mind and soul with positive mantras and remember that you are beautiful.
4) Self-Love. Remember, you are with you 24/7 so love yourself like no one else can.
I.V.A Fitness™ principles are exactly what have helped me to accomplish many of my life’s goals and dreams. I hope that this training program brings you light and the desired results you’ve always imagined, visualized and now, want to actualize – leaving you feeling healthier and stronger: mind, body and spirit!
In Health & Fitness, Lanette

This results-driven program will leave you feeling empowered, strong, toned and accomplished!
I.V.A stands for: Imagine, Visualize & Actualize! Imagine that all things are possible when you Visualize your end result. Actualize these desired results through dance, strength & core moves, and choreography set to music that lifts our spirits and soothes our soul!
I.V.A Fitness™ is suitable for all fitness levels and abilities because the moves are easy-to-follow, repetitive, fun and effective.

3) Dance to easy-to-follow choreography set to all genres of music.
Our vision at I.V.A Fitness - "building stronger and healthier minds, bodies and attitudes towards life-long health and ingenuity: because when you are healthy, you can do ANYTHING!
We understand that adapting to new fitness habits is difficult and often times fails.
Our goal is to change your view on fitness, so that it becomes a part of who you are and your lifestyle.
We do this by creating a judgement free class where you can be who you are....even if that means you don't get all the steps right the first time. Where you define your success and where your coaches make you feel like you belong.
I am currently the Director for a National Workforce Development Organization, Grant Associates; an organization that raises the economic security of the people, businesses and community we serve through workforce development, business insight and bold ideas. With over 20 years of experience in the non profit and education sector - empowerment of people and community is deeply rooted in my values and beliefs. I received my Bachelor's degree in Public Relations & Communications with Cum Laude Honors and later received my Master's degree in Public Administration from Marist College.
I have served as guest speaker and panel member on topics around women's empowerment, personal and professional development, empowerment and leadership and most recently presented on “Building Your Communiity". With a passion for community development and volunteerism, I have organized events from Youth Summits to conferences for Women and Girls of color, to fundraising events for organizations such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Heart Association. I have also assisted with both fundraising and event organizing for local non-profits, and have warmed-up the crowd at Color Vibe 5k and Safe Harbor’s 5k.
I am a life-long dancer, fitness enthusiast, student, Master Coach and dance fitness choreographer, and have been teaching group fitness programs for over 11 years.
Through both my professional and personal endeavors in assisting people to achieve their goals, I have developed a deep passion for women's empowerment and in community development. Deemed a people's-person, I have built a strong sense of community by having a no-judgment attitude in my classes and building a fitness platform based on respect, integrity, empowerment and the know-how that every fitness student is already a winner!
I created this program because my students were asking for more and after 6 major surgeries, I needed more from my workout.
This program is designed with the mind-set that while there are many fantastic fitness programs out there and that no two fitness programs are alike.
I invite you to take a class, host a demo or master class and to be FIERCE AND FEARLESS in all that your heart desires. The opportunities are endless when you put YOU first!
Babies no more, my son JC and my girl, Angelica!
I am available to sit on panel discussions, keynote speaker, presenter at wellness events/conferences, fitness presentations.
