The human body was created to be strong. When the balance between its systems is off, problems occur and lead to pain and dysfunction.

Exercise and strength should feel good, and the empowerment that follows is what motivates.

PHILOSOPHY
You are stronger than you know, so don’t be afraid to try heavier weights, run at a quicker speed, and push yourself. You aren’t going to see changes in your body if you don’t push past what you thought was possible and keep your body guessing. I love it when a client finishes a set with heavier weights and they say to me, “I never knew I could do that."

TEAM TRAINERS

Dana Fuller - Team Trainer
EXPERTISE
My path back to good health & fitness began in 2005 when a concerned family member gave me a Cheetah membership for my birthday. I took the hint and started down the long road to undoing years of bad choices and neglect, hoping & praying to get back to where I was as an athlete in high school & college. A few years into the journey, I realized that I was selling myself short and that, in fact and despite my age, I could be and feel better than I ever had. A decade and a whole lot of achievements and setbacks, grimaces and laughs later, I am ready to give back & look forwarding to helping you get better than you were, too.

PHILOSOPHY
There is nothing more beautiful or essential than a good attitude, and a good attitude is equal parts curiosity, optimism, diligence and the will to have fun.
...................................................................................................................
