REBECCA CARLEY

My goal for clients is to improve the health and skill related benefits that come from performing regular exercise. My style of training is functional based with the goal of increasing muscle mass, decreasing fat mass, improving mobility and stability. Functional strength training will increase the capacity to perform work, improve coordination and balance, and reduce the risk of injury. I want clients feeling better about performing activities of daily living but most importantly feeling better about themselves.
If you are interested in a free trial session or want to contact me with any questions, feel free to shoot me an email.

MARY-ANN SMITH

My passion for fitness began in Ballet at a very young age. Along with my 21 year dance career, I also participated in Soccer and Competitive Cheerleading. These activities took me to my “Happy Place”. Adult-Life taking over caused me to leave behind the sports of my youth and left me searching for my new “Happy Place”. I discovered a new sport in the gym with the guidance and motivation of a Personal Trainer. Strength Training! Cardio Intervals! Movement and Mobility! As a Coach, I will uphold my core values while incorporating Functional Strength Training, Mobility and Stability, and Nutritional guidance all to improve strength and fluidity of movement along with properly fueling the body. Resulting in better life outside of the gym! My goal is to empower my clients to discover, evoke, and embrace positive changes about themselves to create their “Happy Place” for a sustainable healthy life. Whether you have a sports background or are new to exercise, I can offer you the same guidance to help you achieve your goals. Looking forward to hearing all about you!

ANDRE SANGALANG

I was born in the Philippine Islands, in the province of Pampanga. This is where I grew up and competed in Martial Arts such as Kick Boxing and Muay Thai. When I moved from the Philippines to the United States of America, I quickly became obese (240lbs @ 10 years of age) due to the easily accessed food. After realizing that I was unhealthy and over-weight, I began my fitness journey at the age of 10 years old. I began with traditional body-building, which led me to competing in powerlifting. After a few meets I was introduced to Olympic weightlifting, and soon after I started Crossfit. I specialize in functional fitness and power/Olympic weightlifting. My goal is to show people how to improve their quality of life through functional exercise and nutrition.

MEAGAN BEDENBAUGH

I was born and raised right here in Georgia, Go Dawgs! I have four daughters and my husband supporting me at home. While balancing a family and a career may be tough sometimes; I believe that finding time for yourself and your health is important, plus it is important for me to set a great example for my daughters. I live eat, and breath fitness every day of my life. I fell in love with fitness and wanted to share my love for it with others who aspire to become a better, stronger version of themselves. I believe exercise and nutrition are fundamental to living a well-balanced life. I began teaching classes in October of 2017. I love to keep my classes alive and fresh by challenging attendees according to their personal fitness level, while making sure that each workout engages and helps the client improve everyday physical performance. As we work together I look forward to partnering with you to aid you in developing a deeper, more complete understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you in order to implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.

CLAIRE

I fell in love with yoga almost four years ago. I had a wonderful teacher who was kind, and patient hand me this gift- yoga. Through my yoga practice I keep my body feeling good, and my mind feeling centered. I would love to share my passion of yoga with you! I specialize in yoga for beginners, and love practicing sequences that flow holding poses for 3-5 breaths. I also enjoy doing a “yin” yoga style where poses are held anywhere from a minute to five minutes. I can cater a practice to any fitness level, age, or stage of life! Not only will yoga keep your physical body strong, but also it will help reduce stress. I also love to guide people into a relaxed state with guided breathing, and different relaxation techniques. Outside of yoga, I love helping people live their BEST life- and can counsel anyone through this lovely journey called life. A life coach is a wonderful asset to have during any stage of life.  I can also help you reach your nutrition goals- if it were fueling your body for everyday life and the gym, or helping guide you through your weight loss journey.
I look forward to helping you find and unlock your “inner teacher.”
