Bio:

Physical Fitness has always been a passion of mine, I served 26 years in the military with 20 of those years as a Special Forces Operator. The fitness challenges required to be selected and pass the Special Forces Qualification Course is one of the most demanding in the world. The physical competition and motivation on the teams is even more demanding. Through my experiences I have learned to rehabilitate injuries and maintain a high level of physical fitness. As I gained knowledge and experience it was required of me to pass that knowledge on to the younger generation of Special Forces Operators. I have learned the greatest tool to reach your physical fitness goal is your mental strength and a positive mental attitude.
Physical competition has always been a passion of mine. In high school I ran the mile with a time of 4min and 15sec, and the 800m with a time of 1min and 54sec. I completed a 100 mile march with a 40 lb pack, and was fortunate to make the treacherous climb to Everest Base Camp (18000ft AGL). I have summitted Mount Rainier, and competed in the Army 10 miler. Training for these events required a regimented program which I could not have maintained without a great team of coaches and workout partners.
Throughout my time in Special Operations I have developed training programs that incorporate yoga, calisthenics, power lifting, cardio, martial arts, and weight training. My holistic approach incorporates mind, body, nutrition and goal orientated programs that work best with a persons needs and capabilities.
Following my military career I focused on family time and made no time to workout. I gained 58lbs and realized my health was declining. I had to make a change and got back into the gym. In 6 months I lost those unwanted pounds and got back into great shape. I feel healthy and ready to help others do the same.
I was fortunate in my military travels to spend two years in Okinawa Japan, during my time there I witness Japanese people of all ages taking time to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives. This experience has shown me how exercise boost your immune system and can lead to you living a long and healthy life. I look forward to helping you along this journey. Lets Get Fit Yelm!!!

Bio:

My name is Alyssa and I am a mother to three crazy boys. I have been married to my husband and the military for 15 years. We moved here in September from New Jersey as our final duty station before retirement. I have a degree in Psychology and Exercise Science along with a certification in personal training and nutrition. I came from a chronic pain clinic in my previous job where we focused on the movement of the body and the correction of damage that was caused to nerves, muscles and ligaments. At that job, I really found my love for functional fitness and functional strength and condition. It allowed me to hone in on how to help students and clients achieve all their goals and aspirations safely and correctly, allowing for healthy structures and bodies in the future. I am an advocate for health and wellness with all my clients, I strive to teach and educate with any and all medical setbacks whether injury, food allergy, or a simple lack of love for working out. With all that being said I can not wait to work with you and get you set up for success wherever life takes them.

Bio:

As a collegiate athlete and with a few figure competitions under my belt, fitness has always been a passion of mine. Every year new strategies are developed to lose weight quick or to cheat the process but my philosophy remains the same: You must first change your mind in order to receive the health or body desired. It is a fairly simple concept, but the hardest to implement.
I have worked more than 9 years in a gym setting perfecting the art of personal training and building relationships with clients. Clients build a trust with me and, in turn, the information I provide them with they view as valuable. I have learned the importance of goal setting, implementing strategies and evaluation to increase performance. Having extensive hands on training has provided me the experience to provide my clients specific training according to their current health and mindset. After years of working in gyms, I decided to further my education on how and why the body works and went back to school at the University of Puget Sound to obtain my Bachelors in Exercise Science. I feel the schooling was necessary to build credibility of my knowledge about fitness, but I feel the true value lies within the years of experience of working with clients and building relationships with them.
After gaining 70 lbs with each of my three children and not having my body "bounce back", I now get to be my own client. Honestly, at first I was depressed because my body completely changed, but the truth is that clients will be able to relate more to me and vice versa because I can now say "I know what you are going through". The process of getting back into shape has been challenging but extremely valuable and I enjoy every minute of it. I have to now work for it rather than saying I have good genetics. I wouldn't change it for the world . I have my fair share of cheats and setbacks, but I'm honest about it and strive to do better next time to improve my results.
Overall the systems in the body are like puzzle prieces that need to be put together in order to receive the results desired. As your trainer it is my obligation for you to understand how each system works according to your body. The process of changing your mind in order to change your body can be challenging but is very rewarding. My objective as your trainer is to ensure your safety, guide you on the path of success, supply you with the knowledge, give you encouragement when it seems impossible, and most importantly HAVE FUN.

Bio:

My name is Adam. I'm a certified personal trainer through ISSA and currently continuing my education in health and fitness. I've been in love with fitness since I was a kid and enjoy competing with myself in everything I do. On the Mt. Tahoma High School swim team, as a sprinter, swimming had been my passion. My senior year I began picking up weights to aid with my swimming potential and fell in love with building muscle and strength in mind and body.

Through the ins and outs of working out, I have learned how to use energy efficiently to achieve the best results, as well as the best exercises to achieve personal goals. I learned it's one's own mind that is the biggest obstacle. Over the years I've learned how to overcome this obstacle and to press forward.

I've lived in Yelm my whole life. Washington is an awesome and beautiful state, I especially enjoy the mountains. I love hiking and climbing; the more challenging the better. Challenges are what keep me going in life. I always strive for progress and growth.

There are many different strengths one can possess: physical strength, mental strength, emotional strength, strength in discipline, strength in self control, strength in your faith, strength in stability. How strong are you in these areas? How strong do you want to be? Throughout my life I've seen how each area plays a part in the things we want to accomplish or overcome. Life is not a cake walk, it will tear you down if you let it. How YOU choose to respond to these difficulties and challenges, determines how YOU will grow. 

I had a lot of guidance in my life that I am extremely grateful for. Without that help I wouldn't be anywhere near where I am today. Personal training gained my interest when I realized how much fun it was to work with people and help them reach their goals. Friends would reach out to me after seeing the progress I made, asking "how did you do it?", and "what keeps you motivated?". We began working out together and I taught them everything I could. They found that they loved going to the gym as much as I did and I found I enjoyed teaching, encouraging others and sharing in their victories.
