Michelle’s Philosophy
I am so grateful to have Synergy Kettlebell be a part of my story. I came to Synergy thinking I was in for a great physical challenge, what I did not realize was how mentally strong and confident it has made me.

I have such a passion for helping others realize their full potential. I believe that we never fully realize how strong we are unless we walk the unbeaten path. My goal as a coach is to encourage others to have no fear and fight for what lies ahead. When we light the fire from within ourselves we come alive in heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Jennifer’s Background
I have spent 19 years in the beauty industry as a Hair Color Specialist and it’s given me a perspective of just how “skin deep” our physical value of ourselves lies. I’ve personally spent many years fighting the battle for physical health and self confidence, through endless hours at the gym and multiple bouts with personal trainers, I only found minimal success. After I found Synergy Kettlebell my life was forever changed. For the first time I discovered exercise that I LOVED instead of dreaded, and success in every area I had pursued for years. At Synergy I found a family of support that drove me into a love for fitness that I had never experienced before. After two years of being motivated and encouraged by Synergy’s amazing team, I knew it was my turn to inspire others towards their fitness goals. I find such great pleasure in encouraging others to the same success I have found at Synergy.

Training Philosophy
NOTHING happens inside our comfort zone! It is only when we take the challenge and embrace it, that we will find success in our health and well-being. We must strive each day to reach a goal that takes us a step beyond where we were yesterday. We must believe that we are able, and in that find the strength to press forward every time we show up! You ARE strong enough, you CAN do this, and you WILL succeed!!!!

Christina’s Background
I have always had a passion for health and fitness. Exercise videos, going to the gym, running…you name it, I’ve tried it. I was always looking for the perfect workout and found it at Synergy Kettlebell. Synergy has helped me to become the most fit I have ever been, the workouts pushing me both mentally and physically. I am so excited to have the opportunity to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with everyone I coach.

I truly believe that training your mind is as important as training your body. Coaching at Synergy allows me to help members do both. There is no greater reward for me than seeing Synergy members reach their goals!

Charlie’s Philosophy
I came to Synergy, overweight and physically inactive, looking to make a change in my lifestyle. I feel in love with the challenging workouts, the motivation of the coaches and the support and camaraderie of the other members. Nine months later, I was able to compete in my first Spartan obstacle course race. After a half dozen more OCRs, I was looking for a new goal and began training for my first kettlebell sport competition and have now competed in a total of 4. I recently became a coach at Synergy to help others make the changes that can lead to a longer and healthier life. I think we all need to have goals to work toward and enjoy the opportunity to lead others to work toward their’s.

Cait’s Philosophy
I came to Synergy not really liking working out as I have tried the big corporate gyms and hated them. Once my dad introduced me to Synergy I fell in love, not only with the challenging workouts, but the coaches drive to push you to your full potential. I went on to run in 2 Spartan Races and now compete in Kettlebell Sport. Synergy has made me stronger then I ever thought I would be. I love being a coach and helping people push past there limits as the other coaches have done for me!

Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education

Training Philosophy
I have always been motivated and passionate about sports, fitness, and teaching others. I ran track, cross country, played soccer, volleyball, and softball from a young age through college. As a natural athlete, I was excited to combine my passion for fitness with my love for teaching others.

I found Synergy after having my 2 kids and knew it was a great fit because the moment I walked through the doors I knew I wanted to part of the liveliness and community. Having been through my own Synergy journey first as a member, I know how important it is to work from the inside out. I love helping others achieve their goals, feel great about themselves, and pushing people to their greatest potential. In my classes I’ll challenge you to push harder than you think you can and be right there to celebrate your accomplishments. You will work hard for your body and from your heart you will see that you ARE strong enough!

Philosophy
I started running and working out in my early 20’s. Although I ran tack and did other sports in High School, I didn’t have a real passion for health and fitness until I joined Synergy when I was 28. I became engulfed in being healthy and fit and always knew I wanted to coach and motivate others.

My favorite thing about being a coach is pushing and encouraging people to accomplish things they never thought they could do. I also really enjoy talking to people one on one and hearing their own journey and pass on what I’ve learned throughout my own health and wellness experience. I believe being a member and coach of the Synergy Kettlebell Family has really helped me focus on the what my true calling is and that’s to inspire others around me.

Philosophy
Since a young age, I have been very involved in athletics. I grew up playing soccer and volleyball, have run several half marathons, and completed my first triathlon in 2015. Currently, I coach both high school soccer and middle school volleyball while also working full-time as a high school English teacher. Being a Synergy Kettlebell coach not only allows me to share my love for being physically strong and active, but it also enables me to share my passion for teaching others, as well.

Synergy Kettlebell creates a dynamic positive environment and encourages positive lifestyle changes. After being a member first, I am ecstatic to be given the opportunity as a coach and to help push, challenge, and motivate others that are striving to create a stronger version of themselves!

Jenny’s Philosophy
When we set our intentions, our goals become more clear. My hope, when I coach, is to help inspire other to overcome barriers they have set in their minds. When we work together as a group, we inspire each other, we are open and more receptive to challenge ourselves. Working next to someone who is giving their all, motivates me to give all of myself.
