Working with Rich has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. He started off as my personal trainer back in 2011 and I've stuck with him ever since! When he contacted me to see if I'd be interested in his BCC class, I HAD to join. Rich not only guides and coaches you to your goals, but he also CARES! not many trainers do.. He knows when to push you, gives advice on things to do at home like certain stretches if you're sore, he knows nutrition, and he knows how to have FUN during class. If anyone is interested in becomming a client of Rich, I recommend him with such great appreciation. He won't let you down. You'll see a better you. Trust me! Hope to see some new faces pretty soon!!
Jerilyn is passionate and committed to helping people become their best and healthiest selves. And this translates into her personal attention to each of her clients as they work together towards meeting their health and fitness goals. GREAT CHOICE as a personal trainer :-)
Jack has trained me and my husband for five years. I highly recommend him to anyone. He is a wonderful person and a great coach. He pushes us when we need it, but always in an affirming, positive way. Every training session my husband and I work hard, sweat and sometimes doubt our ability to do something, but we always end the workout with a smile and a feeling of satisfaction at having accomplished more than we thought we could. Go for it!!
Kru Jamie teaches the art of Muay Thai in a way that is true to the sport. Not only does she teach the fundamentals for Muay Thai but she encourages discipline and pushes you to reach your potential, all while enjoying the sport. Her passion for the sport exudes through her coaching. Her coaching is world class. Literally. After her return from Thailand, where she trained with some of the best coaches, she was ecstatic about teaching our class the techniques she learned. I couldn't have asked for a better coach that is more opened and welcoming to taking you on a journey that is life changing. Looking forward to continuing this journey at the new gym.
Patti is an excellent coach. She is both knowledgeable and encouraging. Having experienced her own health journey, she is a role model for a healthy lifestyle. She's motivating yet not over the top. Being an executive coach myself, I know that coaching takes a certain discipline, and Patti is a natural.
Jodi was very flexible and very knowledgeable. Provided a lot of information to help me improve my health. Highly recommended!
I've had the pleasure of meeting with Zach- the lead encourager- on several occasions and have been blown away by his ambition and enthusiasm! It's so wonderful to work with someone who has so much passion and commitment to MY personal fitness, health, and overall well-being. At the start, I was skeptical that I would ever be able to commit to any sort of fitness structure. But Zach has taken the time to get to know my personal needs, and inspire me to work toward a healthier lifestyle, while still maintaining a work-life balance. Encourage-Fit is a great program that has instilled so much energy and optimism into my lifestyle. I would recommend that anyone looking to improve their health or physical fitness reach out to Encourage-Fit!
Stefanie is the best personal trainer out there! I have gone through several different trainers over the years, but she is the one who understood me the most. She is very knowledgable, caring and encouraging to her clients! She always puts in the extra effort to make a connection with her clients and learn their specific needs. She is a great teacher/coach, as well as a great friend/cheerleader. In my opinion, that's priceless.
Courtney has been my health coach for about a month now and in that time I have set weekly goals and with her help reached them. I can't wait to recap in our 60 and 90 day reviews to see how far I've come. I truly appreciate her dedication to not only helping me physically but mentally and emotionally as well. She truly wants the best for me and to make sure that I make a lifelong lifestyle transformation!
I truly understand how it is to be overweight and feel like you don't know how to lose it or feel like it's hopeless because no one understands. I'm here to help people to know that it's not hopeless, impossible or hard. I break it down into simplified steps for those who are truly ready and willing to do what it takes to reach their goals

I met Dawn and we had an instant rapport. Our conversation somehow guided us to talking about food and we found we both were gluten and dairy free. It was great to find a kindred spirit. Someone who understood the trials of dietary restrictions (in my case - due to celiac disease). When I learned she is a Health Coach, I wanted to learn more, so I became a client. When I started seeing Dawn in January, I was suffering from GERD, digestive issues, and chronic headaches. These symptoms had greatly improved in recent years by removing gluten and dairy from my diet, but I still suffered set backs (from travel) and it was clear there were other triggers. I had not been able to figure them out. Our first meeting Dawn listened and asked a ton of questions. In future sessions, she reviewed my recent lab results and identified areas where I was deficient. She recommended supplements (in addition to ones I was already taking). Furthermore, she told easy ways to add more Iron into my diet. Each time we met, I left with a checklist of things to do and I tried not to waste any time, so I'd have time to see if the changes helped before our next session. Every meeting I was able to discuss changes I've made and gauge improvement. It wasn't until our last session when I realized I hadn't used all my migraine pills that month. Typically, I would need a prescription refill every month and would even get fearful that I might run out before I could refill. When we calculated the number of pills remaining vs. how many I would normally use in a month, we determined that my headaches improved roughly 75-80%! It was unbelievable! Additionally, I was taking prescription medication for GERD. I had tried in the past to stop taking medication and instead use healthier alternatives to treat my GERD, but I was never successful. Dawn helped me approach it from a different angle. She explained the science of it. We discussed what I normally ate and drank. She explained the obvious food and beverages (coffee) that I should avoid and also helped me discover other triggers that upset my reflux. In time, I have improved tremendously. I have not taken my prescription medicine since early January and my symptoms are 95% improved and getting better every day. I came into this 100% committed to doing what was right for my body, but frustrated because I still was struggling and couldn't find the answers to conquering my headaches, GERD and digestive issues. Dawn's recommendations made sense. They were simple to do. She followed up each session and made me accountable. In between sessions, she sent follow up emails and texts. She provided me tips on delicious and healthy food, locally sourced foods, educational articles, and recipe. She taught me about harmful GMO's, pesticides, toxins and gave me a better understanding of how to read food labels so I could avoid unhealthy foods. I've been able to quietly implement so many changes in our household and I feel better about the meals I am preparing for my family. The experience has been invaluable and life changing and I cannot recommend her services enough! Thank you Dawn for helping me find better health!

I am a mental health counselor specializing in marital, addiction, trauma and women's issues. I practice therapy from a holistic view to empower the client to find the answers to life's questions.
The food I create is delicious. I have a way of turning ordinary vegetables, salads, sides and meats into an explosion of flavors. I share tips on making healthier choices and how to flavor foods in a variety of different ways. I am a health and wellness consultant who loves to eat. Do you think I want to skimp on fabulous tasting food? Not a chance. I can do cooking classes for a group of up to 15. I can also cater (drop off) for a private party.
I have been thinking about, studying, and experimenting with health and wellness concepts for about 20 years. I would never recommend something to someone I haven't tried myself. My general philosophy is: give me 2 hours a week for 8 weeks and I will teach you enough so that you will have enough knowledge to train yourself.
Our business stands out due to our professional coaches practice of supporting an individual, referred to as a client, through the process of achieving a specific personal or professional result. The structure and methodologies of coaching are very numerous with one unifying feature, coaching approaches are predominantly facilitating in style, which is to say that the coach is mainly asking questions and challenging the client. Thus bringing about behavioral change and helping people understand how their cognitive and emotional reactions can interfere with personal effectiveness, performance, and well-being. A skilled practitioner who establishes a strong relationship of trust with their clients conducts behavioral change. Some of the core skills are the same such as deep listening and questions that raise awareness. Some of the underlying philosophies behind coaching are, similar to conventional therapy. Like coaching, a variety of therapy practices embrace a client-centered collaborative partnership that encourages clients to acknowledge their creativity and find their own unique solutions. Coaching is different from therapeutic disciplines in one crucial factor that is in diagnosing and prescribing mental illness. There is a variety of approaches to the coaching methodology that are equally effective from that of conventional therapy. A coach aims to bring together and highlight all the possibilities that will help mold and shape the visioning process for clients as they create a plan and execute the details. It is the transference from attaining a short-term goal into the long-term goal then and maintaining it as an accomplished one. Coaching is performed with individuals and groups, in person, over the phone and online.
