Rebecca Wroten - Haka Fitness

Rebecca (Becca) Wroten

M.S. Human Movement
Diplomat of Pastoral Medical Sciences

Becca began teaching group exercise classes in 2003 and quickly sought certification with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. By 2007, she had acquired advanced certifications in Corrective Exercise and Performance Enhancement, and knew that she needed more. In 2011, Rebecca completed coursework to acquire her Master’s Degree in Human Movement at A.T. Still University. Additionally, she completed certification through the RRCA as a Certified Running Coach and took the coursework for the Functional Movement Screening, a test used by the NFL, NHL, MLB, and NBA to screen athlete’s for muscular and biomechanical dysfunction. In 2013, Becca added to her credentials with the Digestive Intensive through the Holistic Nutrition Lab and the Full Body Intensive, which will be completed in 2014. She is recognized by the Pastoral Medical Society as a Diplomat of Pastoral Medical Sciences.

Becca’s personal journey in life has been greatly linked to sports and fitness from a young age. As an adult, she realizes the greatest things in life come from hard work, perseverance, and courage. It is this belief in the tenacious spirit and a love for movement that drives her program design and the design of Haka Fitness.

“Whether you compete at some level or just do fitness for fun, whether you laugh while you sweat or cry through a workout, it is my hope for you that you always know that you are so capable of being a better version of the you that you are right now. Strive for that daily!”
