Meet Coach Clarissa

Clarissa Gannon is the owner of the online coaching company, Vegan Fit For Life and is a multiple-times certified fitness and nutrition coach.


Clarissa founded Vegan Fit for Life in 2014 and has over a decade of experience in the fitness industry.  Clarissa founded Vegan Fit for Life as a result of her experience in the fitness industry and the observation of just how broken it is. After Clarissa made the decision to incorporate a vegan lifestyle to help some health and digestive issues in 2017, it became quite apparent that this - the vegan community - needed real information and real nutritional strategies. 

As a result, Vegan Fit for Life has become a main source of nutritional information for not only the general population, but also for the vegan competitive athlete. Clarissa holds several specialist certifications and she implements full integration of health in all nutritional protocols.  


Clarissa herself is an avid competitor in the NPC as well as mother to four amazing children (young adults) and wife to an entrepreneur. Residing in sunny New Mexico, she helps women around the world achieve lasting success.

Meet Coach Maria

Maria Rose first discovered yoga in college. She practiced off and on for years while finishing her undergraduate and graduate degrees, becoming a mother, and pursuing a career in the arts. In 2018 Maria Rose was in a car accident that left her with a back injury and a fear for her long-term mobility. Initially practicing yoga at home as a part of her recovery, Maria Rose eventually wanted to take it to the next level.
In 2021, she started Yoga Teacher Training at the New Mexico School of Yoga under the direction of Maria Garré. Maria completed her 200-hour Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher Training and immediately continued her education. She is set to complete her 500 Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher Training in the fall of 2022. Maria teaches private, online, and group classes while continuing her yogic education.
Maria’s approach to yoga remains ever focused on connecting the mind, body, and spirit. Her Ayurvedic classes are created to suit the individual and the season. You can expect to find a balance between hard work and gentle connection to self.


Meet Coach Hanah

Hi, I'm Hanah! I love camping in my converted van, hiking with my dogs, and creating unique, healthy recipes that everyone can enjoy. I used to call Dallas, Texas my home, but in June 2023, I made a new home in Colorado Springs with my boyfriend and two sweet pups.


With a bachelor's degree in food and nutrition and a 500-hour certification in Ayurvedic digestion, I bring a holistic/ root cause approach to wellness.


I've been through burnout, spending two hours in the gym every day, seven days a week, while restricting myself to under 1000 calories and doing excessive cardio. But I realized that the societal notion of working out to become smaller wasn't aligned with the best version of myself. So, I changed my mindset. I shifted to lifting heavy weights, embracing self-love, and nourishing my body with more food. I fell in love with the process of becoming the strongest version of myself.


Now, my mission is clear: I want to help women discover their strength, boost body confidence, and establish healthy relationships with food. It's all about finding balance and living a fulfilling life!

Meet Coach Alena

Hi! I’m Alena, a holistic nutritionist & food coach.


My passion for health and nutrition started when I went vegan 7 years ago and had no idea how to balance my own meals. So I started with a basic nutrition course that pulled me in.


I’ve started noticing positive impact from applying that nutrition knowledge on my own health as well as on my family members. That made me so passionate to spread the word to the rest of the world.


Since then, I’ve completed Wageningen university nutrition course and got a nutritionist certification by ISSA. On top of that, I’ve completed a life coaching course that allows me to help clients with emotions around food and creating lasting healthy lifestyle habits.


To see people feeling happier in their bodies and finding peace around food is the biggest joy for me.


I’m based in Europe - currently called Poland my home. I love being out in the nature, read nutrition and self-development books, workout and cooking simple, nourishing meals.

Meet Coach Kayla

My name is Kayla.


I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer with a specialization in Golf Fitness (GFS) and Youth Exercise (YES).


I fell in love with fitness about seven years ago, when I stepped into a gym for the very first time and met Clarissa. After struggling with my own weight for so many years, I decided to set an example for my kids and take the plunge by working with a personal trainer. I was able to get my weight and health under control with guidance and support.



After a couple of years working in a gym, I decided to take the next step by becoming certified myself. I love helping people feel better, both physically and mentally and I am very excited to start this new journey with Vegan Fit For Life!
