Woodside is proud to welcome our new Director of Group Fitness, Christian Noni. Christian comes to Woodside from luxury fitness brand Equinox, where he was the Group Fitness Director for its Huntington Beach location, as well as the Southern California Cycle Mentor. Christian brings to Woodside over ten years of experience across a broad range of fitness types and styles, but has specific expertise in strategically driving a fitness brand as well as developing national fitness programs and group fitness talent.
At Woodside, Christian will have oversight and responsibility for all group fitness activities and facilities, instructor management and career development, class and program coordination including but not limited to: strength and conditioning, mat Pilates, indoor cycling, flexibility, yoga and aquatics – as well as Woodside branded classes, boot camps, training camps and efforts.
Christian is excited to join the Woodside team and bring his knowledge of the industry, experience building successful and innovative programming and growing and developing the best talent to transform the member experience within Group Fitness.
“I wanted to join a team that shares my vision of building a community, of teaching people to love themselves first and giving them the tools and encouragement to achieve anything they want. I love seeing people get stronger, lose weight, have more energy and improve their overall wellbeing. I think there is such potential at Woodside to make a positive and dramatic impact for our members right away.”
Christian is excited to spend time attending Woodside’s 120+ weekly Group Fitness classes, and getting to know our team of instructors. He looks forward to becoming engrained in the community and meeting our members. Christian will work in his first few months to evaluate the overall group fitness experience at Woodside to identify areas for improvement, will provide education, training and mentoring for Woodside instructors and will tweak programming as needed.
“We are thrilled to welcome Christian to the team, and we know it means great things for both our staff and members,” comments Woodside Managing Director, Katie Swetala. “While it was obviously a priority to find the right experience in a Director of Group Fitness, it was even more important to find the right cultural fit. Christian brings to Woodside an unparalleled, and contagious passion for the work he does and the communities he serves. Both members and staff have a lot to look forward to from him.”
Christian is currently teaching the 6am Cycling Express class every Wednesday at Woodside, and acts as a substitute teacher where needed. For up-to-date class schedules with subs, download the Woodside Mobile App from both Apple and Google Play stores.
