LaTasha Barnes is a 15+ year veteran of the athletic and fitness worlds. Having been sidelined from athletics during her US Army career first by a competition injury and then by a motor vehicle accident as a pedestrian - LaTasha is no stranger to pain, the power of positivity or great achievement. LaTasha worked hard to overcome the functional changes that those events imposed upon her body to become both an elite trainer with her company Imani Wellness, and a professional urban styles dancer with Urban Artistry dance company. She created Imani Wellness to meet the need for enhanced fitness and functional training for athletes, busy professionals and those who are "fit living curious". Our purpose is to help guide you to your ideal self through individualized fitness, athletic or total wellness programming.

    LaTasha is an outstanding personal trainer and wellness/lifestyle coach. She has provided me with great advice and motivation on proper nutrition and exercises for my personal goals of gaining overall strength and losing the belly fat. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. If you want a personal trainer that knows her stuff and convenient then LaTasha Barnes of Imani Wellness is the right one.
