Tony Whitney 

Head Trainer | ACE Certified, BS Exercise Physiology, TRX Certfied, BodyPump & Silver Sneakers Certified


Training Philosophy: Work hard, train hard equals results. Give it your all and reap the benefits. 


What Clients Can Expect: To train properly using good technique. To be challenged physically and mentally. Clients can also find comfort in knowing that they are in good hands with a trainer with a lot of knowledge and skill.  I specialize in training athletes (being a former one myself), to bodybuilders, or just a person trying to get in shape and lose weight.


Hours Available: Open to close, Monday - Saturday.

Seth Jackson

NSCA Certified Personal Trainer


Training Philosophy: Training is what you put into it. Hard work equates better benefits.


What Clients Can Expect: Clients should expect workouts consisting of various exercises and training modalities with an emphasis on exercise technique. Training can range from Olympic and Power Lifting to lower intensity exercises for beginners. I believe in maintaining a professional yet light hearted environment so the work will get done and we will have a good time getting it done.


Hours Available: Open to close, Monday - Saturday.

Colleen Crawford

NSCA Certified Personal Trainer; Certified Pre- and Postnatal Coach; Barre Above, INSANITY, PiYo, and Turbo Kick Certified Instructor


Training Philosophy: Train hard to make life easier. 


What Clients Can Expect: Expect a challenging workout tailored to your goals and abilities. My drive is to guide you toward being more confident in your body and abilities regardless of where you are in your fitness journey. We will focus on increasing your strength and improving your mobility rather than simply chasing a goal number on the scale. I give plenty of encouragement and accountability and expect hard work and dedication in return.
