Bella Dervin



Bella is a certified personal trainer through the National Association of Sports Medicine. She graduated from Marquette University with a degree in Exercise Physiology and is currently pursuing certification as an Exercise Physiologist through the American College of Sports Medicine.

Before joining Empower in 2024, Bella gained diverse experience in the health and wellness field. She interned with the Duke Football team, served as a personal trainer at Pete Mueller Performance Group, and worked at Gold’s Gym Chapel Hill. Bella’s background in collegiate athletics, particularly as a former goalie for Marquette University Women’s Lacrosse, has instilled in her a deep understanding of athlete mentality and the physical and mental challenges they face.

Bella’s passion lies in empowering athletes of all ages, nurturing their love for sport while having fun. Outside of training, Bella enjoys powerlifting, transitioning recently to bodybuilding with aspirations to compete in 2025. She’s eager to explore the science of hypertrophy and the physiological changes associated with competitive bodybuilding!
