Alicia Streger, CSCS (Owner, Lead Trainer)
I have been committed to helping people reach their fitness goals for more than 10 years. I graduated with a degree in Exercise and Sport Science from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and received my certification in 2003 as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA-CSCS.) After I was a Personal Trainer for the Sports Club/ LA, I moved back to the east coast, I became an in-home trainer.
I was introduced to the AMAZING world of kettlebell training in 2009 and became RKC certified. I also recently had the opportunity to assist at the Orlando RKC certification! I believe that kettlebells are the single greatest and most effective tool that I use in my body transformation programs.
Now living in Orlando, FL, I run various results orientated Fitness Boot Camps and Kettlebell classes. I truly enjoy helping people to succeed and helping them achieve goals they never thought possible.
Keith Streger, AFPA-CPT (Personal Trainer)
I’m a 32 year old firefighter and AFPA certified fitness trainer. Along with the physical demands of being a fireman and EMT, I compete in local and national fitness events including road races, duathlons, charity events, and the National firefighter challenge.
My most recent accomplishment was last November where I won the American Lung Association firefighter stair climb located at the 25-story Bank of America building with a time of 3:49 (full gear and air pack).
I also competed in the National Firefighter Games located in Palm Beach County last year. I won the gold medal in the 1 mile race with a time of 5:19.
I also serve as the fitness coordinator for my city’s fire department, where I design programs, give nutritional guidance, and create workout routines. I have over 8 years of personal training experience working with a wide variety of fitness levels. Whether you’re looking to tone-up or lose some weight, I’m all about incorporating fun with hard work!
Adrienne Witkowski, Client Happiness Specialist
As a mother of two young, beautiful girls, I knew I had to get motivated to live a long, healthy life so I could enjoy all the amazing moments that will come as they grow. I have always lived a pretty active lifestyle, but noticed that my energy level seemed low and I felt there was more room to be a happier, healthier, mom, wife, and woman.
After being lucky enough to have met Alicia, I began to quickly understand that everything I dreamed was possible! Through her constant motivation, encouragement, and knowledge, I began to get myself on track with my eating habits and work outs, and I feel great! I happily continue my journey to lose weight, eat right, and make sure that my family follows in the healthy footsteps.
So just when you think you need this, or you think you can’t handle this…that is exactly when you jump in…feet first, whole hearted…and leave with the greatest feeling of accomplishment.
I am Adrienne, I am a woman, I am determined…and I am proud to say that I am Forte Fitness’ “Head Admin & Awesomeness Generator.” I have such a passion for Forte Fitness and all that they stand for. And I am happy to share my passion with you! Come on, jump in…No time is better than now!!!
My passion for fitness and wellness has shaped my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. I played lots of sports and danced early in life. When I got to college, my personal commitment to wellness began. Once I figured out how to be intrinsically motivated, I couldn’t wait to share with others.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science, as well as a Master’s in Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Over the years, I have been trained to instruct various forms of group exercise including kickboxing, weight training, boot camp, spinning, yoga, and Pilates. I also received a Health Fitness Specialist certification from the American College of Sports Medicine.
After a summer studying in Mexico, I relocated to the sunshine state where I currently serve as the Fitness Coordinator at the UCF Recreation and Wellness Center.
Upon moving to Florida, I connected with Alicia and I was immediately sold – who could resist all of the positive experiences happening at Forte Fitness!? I have loved every minute of my journey … our team atmosphere and drive for excellence inspires me every day.

Rachael Malatesta, CGI – Boot Camp Instructor
I have always been involved with various sports and love being active! I went to Rollins College, played basketball, and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education.
For the past four years, I taught 2nd grade at Saint Margaret Mary, was the assistant athletic director, and coached multiple basketball teams.
After joining boot camp about 2 years ago and loving the workouts, motivation, and healthy lifestyle I decided to get certified as a group exercise instructor and join the Forte Fitness Team. I still try to make it to class a few times a week when I am not teaching because even after 2 years I still enjoy it! The workouts are always different and never get repetitive or boring!
I love being an instructor at Forte Fitness and look forward to helping individuals in whatever their end goal may be. Whether it is getting stronger, losing weight, or just living a healthy lifestyle in general I am excited to help people achieve their goals!
Stavros Kricos NASM-CPT, NPTI – Boot Camp Instructor, Personal Trainer
“Do or do not, there is no try.”
I have been passionate about changing the world and myself since 2005. At my heaviest I weighed close to 400lbs and was a heavy cigarette smoker. With death and illness right around the corner at such a young age I decided enough was enough. I wanted to escape the jail cell that was my own mind and body. Through blood, sweat, tears, diet, exercise and a complete lifestyle modification, I DID IT!!!
Overcoming obesity and smoking were the first challenges but last year came my biggest challenge. In April of 2012 I suffered a devastating back injury. MRI revealed a fractured spine and three herniated discs with nerve impingement. This left me bed bound paralyzed and in the worst pain imaginable. I was told in order to walk I would need surgery. I decided to take a holistic approach to healing my own back. I read many books and studied how diet and certain core strengthening exercises can help the body heal itself. One month after injury I was training again. I DID IT!!!
I decided to change career paths and dedicate my life to helping others and to always lead by an example. I graduated from NPTI as a Personal Trainer and went on to obtain my CPT from NASM. I am certified in OsteoBlast, Kettlebell, TRX, and SpeedBlast. I am happily married to my best friend and soul mate Nyaya who you may have met at the camps. We both love Orlando and all that it offers. I am truly blessed to have met Alicia and Forte Fitness and am very proud to be on the team. I look forward to helping assist anyone with there goals. You CAN do it!
