SheenaCoach

My name is Sheena for years I’ve tried to workout for years  I always started then I got bored I figured out going to the gym by myself wasn’t fun for me. I finally gave bootcamp a chance. And it kicked my ass.

I was at such a bad point in my life I gained all this weight my relationship was terrible I needed to start all over . So I did. I went in full force and I haven’t looked back I’ve been here a year in March. I finally found a passion. And then I got asked if I was to teach. I was so shocked . Me teach? I really didn’t think I had that in me. They saw something! This year has been so life changing.  I’m teaching PiyoX I wasn’t  sure at first now I love it cause I made it my own. I work on core strength and balancing, we need all this. I love it now I started kickboxing and PiyoX My favorite so far! Cardio I love when people tell me there sore the next day!! You need  to work the whole body. I want to go continue down this road learn as much I can bout the body and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I want to make people feel good about themselves don’t ever give up! The hope I found it here such a great group of people and there drive is amazing. So, I can give my son things I never had!!..the environment (now I do) so he can enjoy things better in life and go explore the world!

Mike
MikeCoach

“CHANGE YOUR MINDSET and YOUR life will shift into a better place.” I specialize in weight loss, muscle toning and also muscle mass programming here at Strive 4 fitness.

My mission is to bring happiness, motivate and help others reach their goals. I have always been told to do what I love. And I believe I am doing just that. I strongly believe that in order to be a better person in life you must help others. It’s my way of giving back. I always felt us as human beings were put on this earth to help and give. This is how I like to do it. Seeing the change in others confidence wise and health wise. So when I leave this earth I know that I did right by others. And plus it’s my passion and I like to share that with others. So that is what I live by. Strive Strong!

Peggy
PeggyCoach

I have been active in fitness for many years, teaching indoor cycling since 2001 and yoga since 2017. My cycling certification is with Schwinn. I began doing yoga in 2005 during a particularly challenging time in my life and it was so therapeutic.

I obtained my yoga training with Judi Harvin at FocusOm, completing a 200 hour teacher training in 2017. The most important thing to me in fitness is proper form. No matter the exercise, proper form will create a strong foundation and minimize injury. This is what I teach. In cycling it starts with proper bike fit for each student. In yoga, my motto for teaching is ‘it’s not about the pose’, rather it is about the blending of mind, body, spirit and loving yourself. I love the challenge, variety and intensity of Strive and look forward to teaching here.

Mariel
MarielCoach

It’s been 3 years since I decided to walk in the door at Strive and it has been life changing. I finally found a place I can be comfortable and a place that keeps me engaged by offering a huge variety of workouts and continually evolving/changing it up.

I came in the door so unhappy at 39% body fat, overweight, and frustrated with all my yo-yo diets. I fell in love immediately with my Strive Fit Fam! The support and positive vibes at Strive made me embrace the fitness lifestyle. Personal training with Shawn Groll helped shape me physically and mentally. I am now 27% body fat, a certified NASM instructor and I work at Strive! Make that leap, try your first free class, and never look back. Strive changes lives everyday.

Beidy
BeidyCoach

I have worked out since I was a teenager but never took it seriously or had the guidance to make a real, long-lasting, and sustainable change…that is until I joined Strive in 2018. 

Along with classes and personal training I have lost over 80 lbs and am the healthiest I have ever been.  The knowledge and support I gained from all the Strive members and instructors inspired me to obtain my certification and I now help others achieve their goals as well.  I have also completed numerous running events including two full marathons, numerous events at Strive, ruck events, and other obstacle events.   I am a nurse, a mom of two boys, and now also a coach at Strive and look forward to helping others live a healthier lifestyle  by incorporating a balance of exercise, nutrition, and mental wellbeing.
