Personal Trainers

Jill Wetzel


Jill's favorite part of being a personal trainer is when she see's a client start believing and being proud of themselves for the first time. Then she knows that they are exercising for the enjoyment and not because they feel like they have to. She has been a personal trainer for 3 years and certified for 2 of those years. Her training style tends to be cardio focused, full-body workouts, that she can design to fit any intensity level. One fun fact about Jill is that she is left-handed.

Tayler Nick


Tayler enjoys being a personal training because she has the potential of making a large difference in someone’s life. She is currently in-house certified and will be certified at the end of the Fall 2013 semester. Her favorite style of training is interval training.

Fitness Instructor Kirstie Chase


I began my training experience with group fitness classes and becoming a Group Exercise certified instructor. I love the atmosphere of working with people of all different fitness levels. I decided that personal training would be another amazing way to encourage and assist others in their own exercise journeys. I would describe my style of coaching as autonomous. I desire to help others by helping them find what their strengths are and capitalizing on those. Motivation is key and I believe it is a personal trainer's duty to do whatever they can to create a training session or package that is tailored to the individual and their goals! I am open to teaching as well as learning new ways to make the best of each session, whether it be working on balance skills, high intensity cardio, or endurance strength training. 

Josh Ward

Kyle Timmons


Kyle really likes to teach people new things and help them reach new goals in their life; He feels that being a trainer helps him do that. Kyle is a NSCA Certified Personal Trainer. He likes to train functional movement and exercises that will develop a person's overall ability, fitness and health whether for athletics or everyday life, as well as reduce their risk of injury.

Taylor Brady


Taylor’s favorite thing about being a personal trainer because he loves being able to make a lasting impact for the better in his client’s life. Taylor is a rookie but has a tremendous amount of knowledge! He likes to dabble in all kinds of exercise routines but usually tends to lean towards upbeat intervals and circuits.
