Paul Rogus - Personal Training
Paul R.
(4 reviews)
I can remember the first time Paul asked me if I needed a workout partner. It was 8 years ago, we both were Juniors in highschool and in need of motivation. I was a scrawny 5ft. 10in. 145lb teenager in need of some muscle and Paul was the man to help me put it on. From day one I could tell this kid had a drive like no other, a drive that said I will not let anything stand in my way. He has seen me through it all, the struggles and triumphs, but he never let me lose sight of my goal and how far we have come since day one. I can honestly tell you that if it weren’t for Paul, I would still be that scrawny 145lb kid in a 25 year old body. Because of Paul’s motivation and commitment to my fitness goals, today I am a 215lb athlete and not only do I owe every pound of muscle to him,but every ounce of confidence I have gained along the way.

I understand the power of feeling good in your own skin. It can make a dramatic difference in your everyday life, and in your relationships with friends, family and at work. I want to help my clients achieve that same feeling through positive coaching and motivation. I love to incorporate strategic exercises such as circuit and strength training, plyometrics, flexibility challenges and joint stabilization techniques to achieve long lasting results. I will start with customizing an exercise program tailored to your unique goals and challenges, and educate you on making positive choices that you can use beyond the gym floor. We will be in this fitness journey together! And I promise you will have fun, laugh and see a difference physically and mentally. It all starts with just one step!

Annika Michaels - Personal Training

After suffering a head and neck injury, I experienced constant pain for over a year that was affecting all aspects of my life. Any advice or assistance I had received during this period never fully brought me relief from my discomfort. In the course of my constant search for help, I was fortune to find Annika on the FYT site. I was very pleased to see that her credentials and experience were extensive and reached out to her via the site. She responded quickly and we began to work together for the next several months. During this time, Annika created treatment routines for me that consisted of stretches and exercises that helped to support and strengthen the muscles that were being impacted by my injuries. Her help was invaluable in helping me to return to normal functioning within a relatively short period of time. Annika is extremely pleasant and easy to work with and could not have been more patient or kind during the time we worked together. I highly recommend her!

April Gatlin - Personal Training

(5 reviews)
April has proven herself over and over again not only through my personal success of nearly 40 lbs. lost and a 10% decrease in body fat in only five and a half short months, but she does it the safest and healthiest way possible with a lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise for each of her classes and clients. I've never felt so strong, so beautiful, and so confident in myself that it's almost as if I've been born again. Thank you April Gatlin for believing in me and being my rock and my motivator through this journey. I couldn't have done it without you. One thing that everyone needs to keep in mind while chasing your dreams and reaching your goals, as long as you want it as bad as she wants it for you, then you will succeed!

I met Bria at a networking event and began training with her shortly after. I am 3 months postpartum and was super anxious to jump back into fitness. Bria really took her time to assess my current situation and made sure we corrected certain movements before we jumped into more challenging exercises. I appreciate that she specializes in prenatal and postpartum fitness because she definitely provided me with loads of info!
