    Active Wellness was life changing. I walked in with being extremely self-conscious/anxious about my body and today, I have become so much stronger. My trainer was incredibly helpful and knew exactly what steps I needed to take to achieve fitness goal. The amount of support and motivation you receive while training is incredible. The trainers truly listen and care about your well-being and health. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you for this amazing journey Active Wellness!

    Christina from Active Wellness responded very quickly to my request for a personal trainer. I originally reached out for a trainer to help keep me accountable in getting back to shape. I have had several fractures along my right arm the past few years which has made it difficult for me to get back into an exercise routine. Christina worked with me for several personal training sessions for about a month to get me "boot-camp ready." I've been going to the AM bootcamp for several months and feel great! Christina and Drew offer a welcoming supportive environment that makes it worth waking up before the sun rises to work out. I feel stronger and more energetic than I have in a long time. Thanks Christina and Drew!

    I have trained with Drew Lewis for a year and he is both knowledgeable and compasionate. These two qualifications are very important Drew is very knowledgeable in all forms of exercises as well as how these exercises are implemented to help you reach your personal goal. He is compassionate in the way he adressed my individual training needs not as a cookie cutter program a one size fits all, but an individualized program that met my personal goals. Through his training and dietary guidance I achieved my lowest body fat of 18% . When I started with him I was at aprox. 22% body fat . I Think anyone would benefit from both the training and overall guidance that both he and Active Wellness offer.

    I have been training with Christina at Active Wellness for the past 14 months, a new fitness record for me! I've never been able to stick with a fitness program before coming to Active Wellness, but with Christina's gentle but persistent guidance I've been able to stay with the program and make real progress - 10 lbs and 2 sizes lost, plus better mood and lots more energy (and no injuries). Now I'm doing boot camp with Christina and Drew, and actually look forward to going. Christina and Drew are professional, knowledgeable, kind and supportive to people at every fitness level.

    Drew and Christina at Active Wellness are both amazing people, excellent coaches and motivating trainers. I have had the pleasure of doing Bootcamp, Hiking, Running 101, and Yoga Slim with Active Wellness. They create a safe and supportive space for all levels of fitness to feel comfortable and inspired to reach your personal goals. I highly recommend any program!!

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
In 2004, as a new couple, we changed our lifestyle habits. We decided to eat clean, fresh foods and drink plenty of pure water each day. We enthusiastically exercised most days of the week and meditated regularly. We focused on creating a life together that would help inspire others to focus on being their best despite inevitable obstacles and challenges that get in the way. After experiencing the benefits of this uplifting, healthy lifestyle (losing weight, having more energy, feeling grateful and positive, improving our overall health, becoming stronger and more toned), we became eager to share our experience with others. Together, we decided that helping others feel, look and be their best was our life’s work. So we pursued a new career together in personal training and wellness coaching. We have been developing our craft since 2006. In 2007, we began working full time as personal trainers in a corporate gym. It was exciting to help people change their lives, lose weight, become more confident and achieve their goals. Our approach was sensible, sound, realistic and value driven. We were able to help our clients tap into their deeper motivation to live healthier in all ways. This approach of finding your intrinsic motivation is still a major tenet of our work and a founding principle of Active Wellness Personal Training and Coaching. In 2009, the gym we were training at closed. However, that didn’t halt our passion or stifle our commitment to our clients. We believed it was our time to open up our own business and that is when Active Wellness LLC was born! We have been in business since June of 2009. Needless to say that was a memorable and patriotic 4th of July! It has now been over 11 years since the start of our journey together and we couldn’t be more grateful to have the opportunity to do this work!
