Angela Kraber is our General Manager, and teaches Max boot camp, Spin, TRX, Max pump and is also one of our NASM certified personal trainers. While Angela has always been active in fitness and sports, she didn't find her true passion for teaching until her first daughter was born. She discovered Stroller Strides, a fitness class for moms with their babies, and fell in love. In 2007 she started a Stroller Strides franchise here in Huntington Beach and ran it for 7 1/2 years! She sold that business when she partnered with Marissa to start Max Fitness.

While her main focus is women, especially post partum, Angela works with and has trained clients of all ages, sizes, and gender. When Angela isn't at Max Fitness, she loves playing and exploring with her daughters, 12 year old Meadow and 10 year old Emma, or running with her favorite mother runners, Team Big Girl Panties.


Hi, my name is McKayla King-Mason and I am currently a student at California State University of Long Beach. I'm majoring in Business Management & Operations and Supply Chain Management. I was born and raised in Huntington Beach and love exercising at the gym, hiking the wetlands, and cooking with new, healthy recipes. I grew up as an only child which makes me truly enjoy and appreciate the time I get to spend working with younger children. I am so happy to be working in such a welcoming, motivating, and healthy environment at Max Fitness.


Jamie has almost as much experience as she has personality, which means she has a ton! From Yogalates to Boot Camp, Spin and Yoga Sculpt she loves to push people in her class and they love her right back for it!
If you have never tried a format she teaches, or have had a bad experience I urge you to try her class, she will change your mind, we promise.

My fitness journey began in late 2003 as a way to connect with my older sister; we would try out all the local gyms, tai kwon do studios, and yoga studios and eventually found Hot Yoga and fell in love. I officially began teaching yoga in 2013 after receiving my 200-hour RYT in Salt Lake City, Utah. I gained extensive experience teaching in several studios which afforded me the opportunity to teach in many styles including Power Vinyasa, Vinyasa Flow, and Restorative Yoga. I believe in the power of bringing several different practices together to have a more well-rounded personal practice and a deep well of knowledge to teach from. I have received certifications in Usui Reiki, Reiki for Oncology, CPR/First Aid, and provide Dreamwork and Ayurvedic coaching. My hope is to one day provide yoga for underserved populations across California.

My goal as an instructor is to help students reconnect with the playful movement of their own bodies by incorporating gentleyet challenging flows, rhythmic music, and therapeutic guidance all while focusing on the breath. I take a very inward approach,allowing students to personalize their practice while providing an opportunity to strengthen, stretch, and stabilize but most of all keep it real!


I was born and raised in Hawaii and found a love for fitness at a young age. Whether it was being in the gym, hiking outdoors, dancing hula or practicing yoga- I always knew fitness would be a great part of my life. After the birth of my daughter, I was inspired to finally pursue my passion for yoga and fitness, and completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training. From there I also found a love for teaching spin, and now I am currently studying to become a certified personal trainer. I am so inspired by each class, by each student, and I am so excited to be able to share what I love with others!

My name is Pamela Shrum I was born and raised in Huntington Beach. I have 2 amazing children a son 25 and a daughter 20. I started teaching classes in 2011. After taking spin classes for years I realized that I was inspired to do likewise for others. I want to push my clients beyond their perceived fitness limits and help them have the energy and health needed to meet all of their other life goals as well.

What is your favorite style of riding when cycling?

I like to cycle hills the best. I like to pack on the gear with high RPMs to achieve maximum calorie burning and strength training.

What can people expect to get from you in their classes with you.

Clients that take my class can expect to push their limits to the max, while also having a smile on their face because they are having fun at the same time!

What is your favorite thing to do?

Snowboarding is by far my favorite thing to do. I’ve been riding for 15 years and love the joy, speed, and freedom that comes with it. This is the same reason that I love cycling; I get that same adrenaline rush!


Stacie has had a passion for health and fitness from a very young age. She started dancing when she was three years old and has been teaching barre for over 4 years. She loves watching her students grow stronger and more confident with each class they take. Stacie has a Masters in Fine Art and besides teaching, she loves to paint, cook and travel.

Stephanie became hooked on yoga in 2012 when she realized how much peace, playfulness and release the practice consistently brought her. With a deep appreciation for the balance and positivity that yoga was adding to her life, Stephanie was inspired to share this gift with others and completed her 200 hour teacher training at Corepower Yoga. Having also earned a Bachelor's degree from San Diego State University in Liberal Studies, specializing in Children's literature, she's always known that she was made to help children grow and learn. So she blended her love of life, people, practicing yoga, kids and creativity to establish a teaching style of youthfulness and hope.

Stephanie has been certified in the practice of Yin/Restorative Yoga, Vinyasa and Children's yoga through Yoga Fit and Corepower, but is continuously educating herself in all aspects of yoga and life. Stephanie also guides adults and seeks to help them thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, with the hopes that they step off the mat feeling rejuvenated, balanced and reset.

Off the mat you can find Stephanie goofing off with her son, gardening, creating with any kind of knick knacks she can get her hands on, cooking, hiking and spending every moment she can with her family. Yoga has given her a deep understanding of the important balance between mind and body, breath and flow, and strength and flexibility, and she strives to take the disciplines she learns on the mat and incorporate them into her everyday life. Teaching yoga has given Stephanie a purpose in life and has cracked her heart and smile wide open.
