Jen Bruns

I have a passion for fitness and helping people reach their full potential.  That passion comes from being a former teacher and having the ability to work with children.  I have always participated in organized sports and have recognized the importance of health and fitness throughout this journey.  My own training has taken me through competitive cross country, basketball, and most successfully, in track and field as a member of the BGSU women’s track and field team.  Beyond college, I have had my own personal experience battling weight issues, and have only found success through proper nutrition, exercise, discipline, and patience. I have learned that “Living Fit” is the only way to maintain my personal fitness goals.

Kerri Kemp

I played a variety of organized sports while growing up, but I found a true love for running while living along the Chicago lakefront after college.  My love for running has evolved over the years into a passion for cross training and enjoying variety in my workouts.  About 10 years ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to turn my passion for fitness into my career.  I began working as a Group Fitness Instructor and eventually as a Personal Trainer as well.  I truly believe variety is the key to keeping exercise fun, motivating, and effective, which is why I enjoy training in both group and one-on-one formats.  The aspect I love most about my job is building relationships and trust with my clients and class members by sharing my passion and knowledge.   My personal goal, as well as my goal for my clients, is to “Live FIT,” and make happy and healthy living a lifestyle.

John Zam

In school, sports had a huge impact on my life. Ingraining the fact that with hard work and discipline any goal is attainable. From there, I developed a passion for fitness and health;  it has always been my life, so I decided to make it my job. This enthusiasm has lead me to try to inspire others to be the strongest, healthiest, best possible versions of themselves — to inspire others to “live fit” in all areas of their lives. I believe this point of optimal health is achievable for anyone and everyone, so long as you have the right tools and the right mindset. With every client, it is my goal to help them find those tools and achieve that mindset to improve their life.

Kelley Bohman

I’ve been a Fitness Instructor for over 15 years, but just recently became a Certified Personal Trainer. I’ve always wanted to expand my knowledge and train people one-on-one, but raising three children put a slight delay in my plans. Now that they are older, I’ve taken the “fitness leap.” My passion for living a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle, coupled with my passion for helping people achieve things they didn’t think they had the strength, endurance, or will-power to do, makes me excited to work as a personal trainer. I enjoy teaching a variety of classes and am always willing to try new things to keep the body and mind challenged. I believe in alternating workouts through cross training and varying intensities to prevent injuries from creeping up; I believe in keeping the body guessing. Over the years I’ve taught a little bit of everything: water classes, stability ball, cycling, TRX, and all types of cardio/strength combo classes. With proper encouragement and dedication, we can accomplish anything. Embrace the healthiest you!

Kelly Pagel

I have been teaching fitness classes for almost 25 years.  During that time, I have taught many different formats, worked in university and corporate wellness, and trained instructors both nationally and internationally.   About 15 years ago, I began transitioning to mind/body classes such as Pilates and yoga.  I love how yoga incorporates strength, core work and flexibility. I also find it to be a wonderful complement for the other fitness activities we do.  Yoga helps nurture our mind and spirit along with our body, helping us to live fit and live well.

My goal as a yoga instructor is to help my students find health and healing through yoga and other mind/body practices.  I enjoy tailoring my classes to meet the needs of my students and relieving the symptoms they are experiencing.

Jake Conklin

Sports and fitness have always been a central part of my life. I played baseball and basketball growing up, and was always looking for ways to improve my performance on the field. This passion has continued as I look to help young athletes enhance their athletic ability and overall confidence. I have also had health issues of my own, which instilled in me just how valuable health is. I quickly learned that you have nothing without your health. This inspired me to help people of all ages work to improve their health, fitness, and overall quality of life. I enjoy working with people of various ages and fitness levels. To keep workouts fun, I incorporate a variety of exercise methods. I love coming to work every day with the opportunity to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

Brad Bodnar

I became passionate about fitness nearly 20 years ago, initially through distance running and eventually weightlifting.  A few years back I was introduced to boot camp and High Intensity Interval Training style classes, both of which I loved.  Fitness quickly evolved into my primary interest as I researched exercise techniques and programs including how to best approach nutritional needs and dietary goals.  My focus is to optimize clients’ individualized strengths in physical development through positive mentality and educational support.  Enjoy your health!

Kadin Llewellyn

From the age of three I have been involved in sports and fitness. With a father as an NCAA champion heavyweight wrestler and a mother with a master’s degree in exercise physiology, sports and fitness were in my blood. When my athletic career begun to die out, I realized that the part I loved most about sports was the training and preparation. Since then I have trained and prepared myself to compete in powerlifting, run a marathon, try collegiate wrestling and hopefully do much more in the future. I enjoy the process of preparation and training so much, that I had to share it with others. So, I became certified as a personal trainer. I enjoy working with clients of all kinds and love the fact that I can help people reach their goals while building friendships with them. My focus is to share my love for training and preparation with my clients and inspire a new outlook to focus on the process instead of only the results.

Lindsay Dwornik
Sports have been a part of my life since I was young. In high school I participated in volleyball,
basketball and track. I suffered an ACL and meniscus tear during my Junior year of high school
and underwent reconstructive knee surgery. I’ve always been intrigued to learn what you can
do to avoid these types of traumatic injuries. Today’s athletes that strength train are blessed
with the opportunity to correct muscle imbalances and learn proper techniques to help prevent
injuries. A few years ago, I was able to make personal training my career and I absolutely love
it. I love being an inspiration and providing the motivation my clients need.
