Gina Gutierrez is the Associate Partner and General Manager of DIAKADI. With an undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from Marquette University and a Masters degree in Sport Management from the University of San Francisco, Gina enjoys sharing her passion for fitness, wellness, and sport.
Growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Gina has always had the desire to participate and compete in sports. Starting at the age of three she excelled as a gymnast for eleven years. Following intense training in gymnastics, she dedicated herself to soccer and volleyball through high school and demanding club teams. With a solid foundation of balance and flexibility, power, speed, and agility, and mental and visual focus Gina can easily take these sport training essentials and create a workout suitable for anyone looking to stay fit and healthy. She continues to challenge herself with new activities such as yoga, Pilates, kick-boxing, and running as a competitive marathoner. As a trainer, she helps her clients find this same passion through fitness.
Gina has also had the opportunity to work along side athletic trainers, physical therapists and cardiac rehabilitation specialists in order to gain a deeper insight into injury prevention and heart healthy fitness. Her education and personal experiences have allowed her to teach others the fundamentals of biomechanics, strength and conditioning, endurance, and behavioral modifications. Gina tailors her programs to each client’s specific needs and lifestyle goals. Her training style is focused, motivating, rewarding, and most of all fun!
Since 2002, Gina’s client base has consisted of the following:
- Beginner Runners

- Pre- and Post- Natal Training
- Youth (Ages 10-17)

While Gina has shaped her career as a personal trainer, her commitment, enthusiasm, and determination have led her toward working in fitness management. While working in the industry, she has been able to learn what clients and trainers expect, desire, and wish for in a premier training facility.
