Latrina Woods

Founder & Coach 


My name is Latrina Woods, and I am passionate about helping people reach their full potential. I've been in the fitness industry for over 10+ years. I got my start back in 2011 when I was an Intern at Curves International, which was the number one women's only group workout; after college became a certified personal trainer and worked at various gyms in Seattle, Washington. 

Fast forward to 2014, I joined Teach Nola and moved to New Orleans to become a science teacher. Even though I took a break from personal training, I remained disciplined when working out and eating healthy. I realized that it was difficult to stay active and find healthy eating options living in the upper 9th ward. If it was hard for me, I could only imagine how hard it was for others. Covid magnified the disparities and was the ultimate catalyst for me to start Vivify. I wanted to use my expertise and experience to help other women get in shape and live an active and healthy life.  

Fast forward to 2020, I started Vivify in a Karate studio on st Claude. Through word of mouth and social media, Vivify quickly grew and is now in its first stand-alone location. 

Our mission is to help women reach their fitness goals by harnessing their inner strength and building community one workout at a time. And our vision is to make exercise a priority in everyone's life. People join Vivify because they want to make a change in their life, and they stay for the community.

Bryiana Richardson



My name is BRich, I'm a personal trainer passionate about helping individuals reach their fitness goals. Prior to becoming a personal trainer, I was an elite athlete for many years which earned me a scholarship to compete for the LSU Women's Track Program. Shortly after receiving my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from LSU, I began working at various training facilities around the New Orleans area to further develop my skills.

I have now developed a holistic approach to training, focusing on the whole being rather than isolating areas. My goal during training sessions is to get the mind, body, and spirit involved, when all those areas are functioning together that is when we can be our most elite self. I use my experiences as an athlete and the knowledge that I acquired while studying to help individuals transform their lives and reach their fitness goals.
