Meet Our Staff

John Yamada John Yamada
Certifications: FiTour Personal Trainer, educated on ACE and NASM principles.
Education: Attended George Mason University for 3 years double majoring in Business Administration and English.
Job Experience:I have worked with clients of all ages and experience levels from athletes to police officers and teens to octogenarians. I have helped them achieve goals ranging from weight loss to optimal sports performance. At South Run, I have taught Adult Weight Training, Teen Weight Training, Power Pump, Total Toning, Kickboxing and Golf Fit.
Short Personal Description: I've lived around the country from Boise, Idaho to New York City, so I often have a story or two to share. I finally settled in Burke, Virginia in 2003 and I've been a proud member of this great community and admirer of its beautiful parks ever since. I'm half Korean and half Japanese and I was raised to have a great interest and respect for culture — both familiar and unfamiliar. I enjoy studying and speaking foreign languages; I speak Korean casually, some Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. I'm also a martial arts and self defense enthusiast. I've studied everything from Fencing to Taekwondo, and kickboxing to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Philosophy on Exercise:   I believe exercise is about treating your body the way it deserves to be treated. Those who care about me would want nothing less for me, and therefore I want nothing less for myself or for anyone else — I want to help everyone I can be healthy and feel great.

Tina Kimball Tina Kimball
Certifications:   Personal training certificate from the American Council on Exercise in 2004. Mat Pilates 1 Certification by Balanced Body University.
Education:  Lake Braddock Secondary High School, and course work in anatomy & physiology, health, and personal training at Northern Virginia Community College and George Mason University.
Job Experience:   It has been a privilege and joy to be a staff member at South Run since September 2006. The classes I have taught include Boot Camp, Pilates, Golf-Fit, Absoglutely, Yoga, Fitness Training and Mat Fusion. I stay current by taking continuing education courses in areas of health and fitness. I also read and apply the information that comes out in the ACE Fitness Matters magazine.
Short Personal Description:   I have lived in Virginia since 1968 and enjoy its mountains, beaches, lakes and rivers. My husband and I enjoy hiking Old Rag Mountain together as well as riding the waves at Cape Hatteras. We have three lovely children ages 12, 15 and 20 years old.
Philosophy on Exercise:   I believe if we take care of our bodies through proper diet and exercise, our bodies will serve us well to be able to do whatever it is we enjoy doing. It takes discipline, commitment, consistency, and courage but after a good workout you not only feel good, you feel good about yourself.

John Morgan John Morgan
Certification:Certified Personal Trainer by NASM.
Education:BA from Roanoke College.
Job Experience:I worked as a Personal Trainer at Washington Sports Club for over a year. Prior to that, I maintained a professional career for a national trade association as Director of Education and Training. I have been working as a Personal Trainer at South Run since October 2009.
Short Personal Description:   I established my Personal Training practice after retiring form the "9-to-5" rat race. I have been a trainer for a number of youth soccer teams in the Springfield (SYC) area. While in college, I played for a nationally ranked D III college soccer program and was collegiate Handball Champion. I am married with two college aged daughters.
Philosophy on Exercise:   "Exercise is one part perspiration and two parts inspiration." People of all ages can agree on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. What makes the difference is the willingness to set personal goals and follow through. This may include weight loss, but more importantly it is to focus on a balance between "diet" and exercise. A very important benefit of working with a Personal Trainer is that s/he can help your on your way to achieving those goals. I learn what the client's goals are and develop a rewarding, interactive workout that will make you feel good about your exercise program. Your workout will focus on building lean muscle strength and developing joint stability to ensure overall fitness.
