Ben Matlak

MS Kinesiology, BS Exercise Physiology

ACSM Certified Exercise Physiologist, NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach, Functional Movement Systems Level II Certified, Precision Nutrition Certified Nutrition Coach, Certified Online Trainer

Ben wants to help you enjoy your life outside the gym. He has been working in the fitness industry for more than 10 years.  He looks at the big picture when it comes to health.  While exercise is important, your health and happiness are comprised of different qualities like sleep, eating habits, stress and relationships. It’s important to take a holistic approach to help people move better, look better and feel better.

You probably don’t want to spend all your free time in the gym.  Ben is all about efficient training and health strategies to help you enjoy the things you love.

Outside of work, Ben spends time seeing the world, playing ultimate frisbee, petting dogs, hiking and jumping off things into water.

 

Blake Parsons

blakepar23@gmail.com

BS in Exercise Science, 200hr RYT Yoga Teacher, StrongFirst Kettlebell Instructor 2014, ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Functional Movement Systems Level II, CHEK Holistic Lifestyles Coach 2014

Blake has an infectious affinity with kettlebell training and his passion shines through when he is coaching others with this tool. With his recent undertaking of 200 hours studying yoga, he now combines the two in his signature Kettlebell Yoga Flow class.  He believes in proper movement and training the whole body (and the mind) for strength.

Blake believes that what you do in the gym is to prepare your body to be able to go out in the world and be able to complete any activity you desire. He finds the most efficient ways to get the most benefit out of every workout, no nonsense training methods here.

Outside of the gym, Blake loves to be out in nature doing all kinds of adventures and activities.
