Our quality of life now and in the future is greatly determined by what we do now, having that tough conversation, setting goals, and committing thought to action with dedication and consistency are the tools you need to begin your journey.
We take great pride in what we do and are fully vested in your long term success, educating our clients to train effectively, and make healthy choices enabling you to maintain a lifestyle while living it to the fullest.

What happens when you find yourself at age 37 with middle aged weight gain, a chronic smoker and unhealthy in body and mind? You can choose to continue that lifestyle, or you can make moves to change it. Crystal Woods did exactly that … she took steps towards change and joined a fitness community, quit smoking cold turkey and took back the power in her life that had been missing for years. Crystal has grown in credentials and experience over the last six years in this health-conscious community serving as an athlete, competitor, personal trainer, stage coach and judge. Crystal loves the purpose, challenge, health in mind, spirit and body that this lifestyle affords her. She works hard not only to maintain her goals, but helps her clients define, achieve and maintain their healthy lifestyle goals as well.
