Personal Trainers

[IMAGE: Jill Wetzel]


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

My favorite part of being a personal trainer is seeing the physical and mental progression in my clients as a result of the effort put forth through training. Being able to improve a person's overall wellness and self-efficacy is incredibly humbling and rewarding.  Having the ability to influence people in that aspect drives me. I am currently in-house certified and my favorite style of training is a mixture of circuit and high-volume training.

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.

I really enjoy being able to help people accomplish their goals and helping them set new and higher goals. I am just getting started on what I hope is a long, successful career. I motivate through positive reinforcement!

I really like to teach people new things and help them reach new goals in their life; I feel that being a trainer helps me do that. I am a NSCA Certified Personal Trainer. I like 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.

My favorite part about being a trainer is that I am able to see people progress towards their goals and that exercise has a positive impact on their everyday life. I am a USA weightlifting certified coach and have a passion for the clean, jerk, and snatch variations. My training style is strength training as well as high intensity intervals but, I know how to adapt for clients who may not be ready for those types of workouts.

My favorite thing about being a personal trainer is being able to change someone’s life for the better and help them improve their health and physical performance. I enjoy challenging my clients with plyometric and weight training.

I love being a personal trainer because it gives me the opportunity to help others make a positive lifestyle change and achieve their fitness goals. I incorporate many different training styles into my sessions; anything from functional movement to sports specific training. I tailor each session to each individual client and that gives me the ability to help them reach their goals and go above and beyond what they thought could be possible. I like to push my clients to see past the barriers and make exercise a part of their daily lives.
