Meet the Trainers
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.
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.
I've been a personal trainer for 3 years and certified through Interactive Fitness Trainers of America. I have a Bachelor’s degree from Elizabeth City State University in Aquatics and Fitness. I was influenced to become a personal trainer when I went from 250 lbs to 185 lbs in a matter of months. I wanted to be able to reach out to others and let them know that they can do it! My motto is "GET RIGHT" my training style is constant motion. I believe in getting that blood flow pumping and getting you sweaty. Feel free to come talk to me, I'm all arms. Excuse me, I mean ears.
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!
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.
I was born in Gaithersburg, MD, and raised in central Florida. I became interested in the health and fitness industry when a few of my family members passed away from cardiovascular heart disease. I was not exercising or eating well which unfortunately my relatives suffered through this lifestyle behavior.
I took my studies through the University of Central Florida as an undergraduate for health and fitness. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in 2008 and wanted to pursue my education. I attended an online graduate degree through Arizona Still University in human movement. If anybody asks what human movement is, well I study how the body moves in all directions relating to sport or activities of daily living. I graduated through ATSU in 2013 with a Master's Degree in Human Movement.
I am certified through the American College of Sports Medicine as a personal trainer. This is a more clinical and health based certification dealing with populations that have certain risk factors such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc. I make sure the individual gets an exercise program that fits their needs based on the risk factors listed above.
My other specialties are group exercise classes. I love to teach participants how to make exercise fun! I love to cycle, run, and play basketball. I make time for those who want to change their lifestyle habits.
My name is Stephen Kachur and I was born in Wilmington, NC but have lived in New Bern for almost 10 years. I was certified by the National Academy of Sport Medicine in December of 2017. I had always been interested in fitness but when it became a passion I knew I had to make a career out of it. I love doing what I do and would like to continuing learning all I can about it. I currently teach a HIIT class and do personal training.
