Chad’s love for fitness and exercise began at a very early age as soon as he discovered sports. Since he was a child, he has been a fanatic and played a wide variety of sports and activities including basketball, football, soccer, snowboarding, hiking, and weightlifting. Helping people is a passion of Chad’s and he wants everyone to learn healthy lifestyle habits they can continue to utilize throughout their lives.

Chad believes exercise is a lifestyle that should be embraced by every single individual regardless of age or ability level and would love to help everyone achieve this philosophy because being sedentary is extremely unhealthy.

Dani Belli

NASM, Certified Personal Trainer

Areas of Specialty:
Muscle Gain
Strength Training
Weight Loss

From a young age Dani was involved in dance classes and sports, specifically softball and volleyball. Through these disciplines, she was introduced to strength training. Anything that enhanced her ability to jump higher and spike that ball harder she quickly became obsessed with. In her adult life Dani became a serious gym enthusiast. She experimented with CrossFit and yoga but ultimately it was simple strength training that won her over.

Learning how to craft the exact body she wanted not only fulfilled the physical but also the mental aspect of training. Struggling with anxiety, Dani found that the best medicine was getting those endorphins flowing at the gym. An hour of putting everything you have into your body allows you to come out with a whole new mindset. There’s nothing more fulfilling then passing on your knowledge to help someone who may be struggling with the same things as you, so she took her passion and set out to do just that.

Eden Robinson

NASM, Certified Personal Trainer
RYT200 Yoga Instructor

Areas of Specialty:
Core Strength & Stabilization

While Eden worked as a rock climbing trainer to kids, her favorite part of the job was coaching them in overcoming their fears and discovering how strong they truly are. Now, as a personal trainer she gets to do the same thing with her clients, showing them what their bodies and minds are capable of. Unlike other trainers, Eden’s fitness journey did not start until college. This works in her and her clients’ favors as there is a level of comfort with her when you are a beginning your fitness journey yourself and just gaining your confidence.

When Eden is not working out she likes to discover new comedies on Netflix, work on her next tattoo design and go on trail runs while listening to the latest P!nk album.
