Meet the Trainers

VJ Clark

I am a certified personal trainer through Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). Prior to my current certification, I was certified through World Instructor Training Schools (WITS) and was employed as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor on Cape Cod, MA.

During my time on the Cape, I trained a full spectrum of clients. My clientele included high school athletes, fitness competitors, marathon runners, and all ages looking to improve their overall health and wellness with strength training and education.

I was born and raised on Cape Cod, MA. I received my AA from Cape Cod Community College and my BA from UMASS-Boston.

I have competed in two marathons and two bodybuilding shows.

I believe exercise should be both fun and relevant to one’s everyday life.

Janice Cox

I am a certified personal trainer and  group exercise instructor with 25 years experience.   Recently retired from the teaching profession, I continue to work in the fitness industry teaching classes and training individual clients.  I have experience working with members who require modifications as well as those who desire core training with an emphasis on posture and balance.


Olivia Guppy

I became a Certified Personal Trainer in 2017 through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) after falling in love with fitness in my late 20's. I grew up in a household where health was not very important. After having my son and losing a handful of loved ones to preventable illnesses, I decided that I needed to set a better example than my parents set for me. I joined the YMCA and along with healthy eating habits, I lost 80 lbs. It was at the YMCA that I realized I wanted to help others lead healthier lifestyles as well. 

My favorite way to workout is in group classes so you can often find me taking a barre, yoga, kickboxing, or BodyPump class. In addition to personal training I teach interval type classes and P90x LIVE. I love writing fun workouts for my clients so they always look forward to our sessions! 

Duffy Huffman

I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) and have been certified since 2013.  I also have 10 years of experience teaching fitness classes.  I have taught a little bit of everything including Pilates, Strength training, HIIT, Spinning, Floor Aerobics, SilverSneakers, and Step.  My favorite classes are Pilates, SilverSneakers, and Spinning! 

I am native to North Carolina and grew up in Raleigh.  I have been married since August, 1999 and have two children.   I have B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a M.A. in Christian Education from Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky.  I have been an avid fitness enthusiast for as long as I can remember.  I played soccer for 7 years as a child and currently enjoy running for my personal exercise.  In January 2017 I made a goal for myself to run one 5k or 10k each month of the year!  I thoroughly enjoy working with clients, teaching classes, and motivating others.  I also love to learn new things!  My philosophy is that exercise should be fun and incorporated into daily activity!  I have worked with clients of various ages and stages of life.
