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.

Kendrick Davis

Certified Personal Trainer


Training Philosophy: Exercise is one of the most important things for someone to do not just physically, but also mentally. Exercise should relieve you of stress, make you more motivated, and change the narrative you have for yourself in your head. 


What Clients Can Expect: My clients can expect to work hard. Each client's program will be specifically set to benefit them in the areas that they are wanting to strengthen. Clients can expect nothing to be taught but proper training with great technique. I specialize in fat loss and strength training, but I am able to work with any person with a great goal in mind!


Hours available: Monday - Friday, open to close.

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.
