Cori

Cori

Founder

The reason I can get my clients great results is because I’ve been the idiot that has made every mistake and experimented…Even with ridiculous things. I’ve been stuck in that diet and deprive, binge, guilt, binge, try a new diet cycle.

I’ve ignored injuries and pushed through only to end up more injured. I’ve gained weight and lost weight. I’ve worked out hard and then slacked off because I’m so burnt out.

And because I’ve made all the mistakes, I now know what works. That’s why I can help you.

I realize that each person has unique needs and no two fitness journeys will look alike. I’m a fitness nerd and former Division I tennis player and the 2011 Massachusetts/Rhode Island State Best Overall Raw Lifter. I can’t wait to help you on your journey 😊

Michelle

Michelle

Dietitian Manager

My name is Michelle Alley and I am a registered dietitian. I believe in keeping nutrition simple and sustainable. We should enjoy our eating, not suffer from it. I know that small wins day to day create momentum towards larger goals. My spark for nutrition came as a collegiate track athlete who learned quite literally that I could not outrun a bad diet. 

Since then I have earned two degrees in nutrition (BS in Dietetics, BS in Health Sciences with a Nutrition Emphasis) I and have worked the last 9 years counseling others to reach their nutrition and fitness goals. I’m an avid hiker, and love the outdoors. I’m also a bit competitive and love finding new challenges to continue to push myself and see what I am capable of. My current fitness journey has me pursuing triathlons and trail runs.

I have been the person that was extremely obese… I got a wakeup call in my early 20’s. I started exercising like crazy (to Tae Bo) and ate waaaaay too many grilled chicken salads 🥗
About 150 pounds and a few years later, I joined a Kempo Karate dojo and started a Kickboxing class there along with Bootcamp, Self Defense and a run club. My Love for cooking and eating good food pulled me in the direction to explore nutrition coaching. I am driven to help as many as I can to reach their goals and feel good about themselves!

SUSA

Dynamic Strength Manager

My name is Susa and I have always been dabbling with fitness a run here a swim there some serious Jane Fonda at some stage, pink leg warmers and all. As my kids where getting more and more independent I realize that Ellen DeGeneres was becoming my new best friend and I needed a new “hobby”.

I enrolled in a Personal Trainer course through the American Council of Exercise, opened up a Fitness Studio and it just so happened that every one that signed up for my classes was 65 and older.

They each came with a set of range of motion problems and that send me down the rabbit hole of rehab. On this quest for answers I stumbled onto the queen of rehab and prehab Cori and here I am having the best time of my life.

Registered Dietitian

Fitness, athletics, and nutrition have always been apart of my life! I grew up playing every sport out there, but truly fell in love with soccer. I eventually went on to play Division 1 soccer but during that time realized my passion was more in nutrition and overall fitness, not just soccer. I graduated in nutrition and dietetics.

I married my high school sweetheart who was also a college athlete so you bet there’s always a competition going on in our house. I love lifting, running, hiking, cycling, cooking and taking walks with my husband and dog 🙂 I love coffee and warm weather! What I love most about nutrition is that there is always a place to start! No matter where you are in your journey, I will meet you there and will help you take little steps to get you to you overall goals! All foods fit, and I am here to help you learn how to eat for YOUR body, and feel YOUR best every single day!

Julia

Registered Dietitian

My passion for health started during my time as a collegiate athlete, where I realized the immense impact that both nutrition and fitness had on my quality of life. Through my own health challenges, I went on to become a registered dietitian and certified personal trainer.

Today, I help guide others on their health journeys to feel their best, while simultaneously finding sustainable results. My favorite quote reads, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” — and my ultimate goal is to teach you the necessary tools so that you may apply them throughout the remainder of your life. I am a proponent for creating a healthier lifestyle overall, without the need for extreme dieting and restrictions. I believe in small daily changes that will add up overtime to create remarkable improvement. Most of all, I’m passionate about helping you become the best version of yourself!

Coach

My career in fitness has spanned over 12 years. As a Fitness Coach, I have helped countless people lose weight, run marathons, clean up their nutrition and even helped them touch their toes. More importantly, I’ve helped people feel confident in their own skin! Health and fitness have always been a passions of mine. I enjoy taking on new challenges and experiences.

I played on an international roller derby team, competed in a figure competition, ran a marathon and also played college softball. I have been a vegetarian for over 15 years. This way of life has opened up my eyes and taste buds to unlimited flavors but has also taught me an important lesson about planning and coming up with different tactics to ensure the food I’m eating is supporting my health. I believe in viewing food as fuel and/or medicine for our bodies. Once you understand the impact healthy eating has on your health, the possibilities are endless and also tasty!

Hey, I’m Megan, a holistic nutritionist and integrative health practitioner. I dove into health and fitness at a young age with sports and a desire to learn how to keep my body fit. That love for health just kept evolving into personal training and nutrition coaching and spending my free time learning and exploring the world of health and wellness.

In my 30’s I got more into hiking, mountain biking and trail running and I try to challenge myself with a couple outdoor fitness endeavors every year. I love to see what I can do physically and mentally and watching others challenge themselves inspires the heck out of me! My passion for health has always guided me to help others to improve theirs as well and I hope to continue to do so for many years to come!

I have always enjoyed working out and physical activity, from college swimming, group fitness classes, weight training. My dedication to fitness has gotten me through the ups and downs of life, including breast cancer. At the age of 50, after leaving school counseling and a long time career as I counselor, I began to follow my passion in fitness as a personal trainer and swim coach.

Not one regret as it is never too late to begin a new career. From coaching both age group and adult swimmers to be better athletes, educating athletes the benefits of functional fitness in every day life, and pushing myself to continue to pursue new interests, like cycling. I love encouraging clients through the process of their personal fitness journey. Fitness is forever and we are never too old to begin to be active and fit.

Lynne

Lynne

Coach

Growing up, I was always active and loved cooking from scratch. I dabbled with a couple of sports, but I was 100% passionate about cheerleading. I spent 20 years as a military spouse and mother. We moved often, but my love of exercise and good nutrition followed me wherever we moved. Over the years, I have enjoyed a variety of activities: strength training, sprint triathlon, 5&10ks, obstacle races, rappelling, fly fishing, hunting, camping…as long as it doesn’t involve a ball, I’ll try it.

After my husband retired from the military, I decided to put my degree to use and become a personal trainer. I guess you could say, I’m still a cheerleader. I just cheer people on hitting their personal goals.

My personal fitness journey began over 20 years ago and it carries on to this day. During this time, I realized that I had a passion for helping others navigate what living a fit and healthy life looked like. I enjoy helping people find what works for them and encouraging them through the ups and downs (because there will be ups and downs). The truth is that during many of my downs, early on, I would scratch my workouts, but now they are a must do. I know that living a fit life is more than the way I look – it is about the way I feel. I have learned through the years that when I put myself first and take care of myself I can be a much better version for everyone else. Being a military wife and mom of three amazing kids I know it is not always easy to take control of fitness and nutrition, but it is oh so worth it!

I have always had a passion for all things related to health, fitness, and nutrition. I have experimented with different diets, supplements, and every type and style of training I can find. From trail running to CrossFit, Pilates, yoga, rock climbing, mountain biking, snowboarding, and jiu-jitsu – I love finding out what I am capable of and how far I can push my body. The most rewarding aspect for me is helping others discover their own limits and then surpassing them to become the best version of themselves. Although I focus on helping people change their relationship with nutrition and fitness, it goes beyond that. Witnessing people evolve and thrive in every aspect of their lives is what truly makes me love what I do.

Hello! My name is Nikki and I am a mama of 3 crazy beautiful humans. I was born and raised in California but since then spent 6 years in Oregon and recently took a leap of faith and moved to South Carolina. I grew up a competitive gymnast and my whole life changed when I was forced to quit the only thing I ever loved at 16 because of a back injury. After that is when my love for fitness and helping others on their journey began. I love to dance, camp, hike, snowboard and really do anything that has to do with water. Sometimes I wonder why I wasn’t created a mermaid because if there’s water – I’m in it!
