Hi! I'm Romina Kostich


I'm a New York City personal trainer turned online coach living my dream life in Costa Rica.

I began my fitness career in 2014 working for the top gyms in the city and mentoring under the some of the most brilliant minds in the industry. After six years of employment, I decided to branch off and become fully independent, founding Skilled Strong Inc. while continuing to train clients in NYC. Shortly after starting my business, the pandemic hit and closed almost all doors to continue in-person training in NYC. This major life change put me at a fork in the road: either wait for things to go back to normal to continue my life's work in New York, or take the risk and move to a place that allows me to live the lifestyle I've always dreamed of. Ultimately I decided to weld the 2 things that fulfill my life's passion, and in October 2022 relocated to Costa Rica with an online personal training business serving clients around the globe.
