Since I first began training over 23 years ago helping people reach their goals became a personal interest rather than just a job. Whether it be losing weight, building muscle, sports specific training or helping you recover from an injury I have always found it to be rewarding. I never pull up to the lot of the gym and dread training people. Each person, each individual circumstance that made that person seek me out is a puzzle to me which I love to help them solve. I've always said it's not just about helping you reach goals. To me it's about changing lives.

The Trainers

James Hambrick

Brittany Hambrick

I first became certified after my Lupus diagnosis at 23 years old.  I knew then that if I didn’t get into a profession that kept my body strong.  The onset of this disease brought many other autoimmune disorders.  One of which was Rheumatoid arthritis.  Personal training and teaching fitness classes became a passion and a necessity to me.  I enjoy and am deeply dedicated to helping others, be them healthy or suffering from arthritis themselves.  My disease has become the most valuable teaching tool I could have at my disposal.  I understand stiff joints and achy muscles and I know how to strengthen them and make them stronger and more fluid.  I coach a HIIT class called Losing it with Brittany with 25-35 clients also several small group classes of 6 and a boot camp classes of 12.  I live by the motto, “You are made to move.”
