MEET OUR PERSONAL TRAINERS
WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?
Contrary to a gym or health club, we provide a private facility that allows for more personal attention and no intimidation. We have no members. There is no need to wait on equipment or feel self conscious with those around you. Each client is seen by appointment only. We don't offer personal training. We specialize in it!
Each program we design is catered to the specific needs of the client. There are no pre-designed programs or routines that are used. Although principles are universal, each person is different and is trained according to those differences.
Our personal trainers work together as a team, whereas gyms and other personal training studios have a serious lack of communication and continuity. Most facilities have a low standard, allowing each trainer to do their own thing, rather than following a proven system established by the business. It¹s every man for himself. At our facility, we continually strive to put the client¹s needs first, over our own. It does not matter which trainer you are with, because you will be taught the same principles and instructed in the same way. Anywhere else, it's a roll of the dice. You may get a good trainer and you may not. Maybe you do, but that trainer leaves and you are stuck fulfilling a contract with someone who has a style you are not comfortable with, he /she is less knowledgeable, or less experienced. As a client of BOE, you will never have to worry about that scenario!

I was involved in activities growing up, playing competitively in college, and am still active today. After graduating college with a degree in Athletic Training I knew I needed to find ways to stay active and fuel my competitive drive when competitive sports were behind me. I devoted my interest further in the human body and learned how to train it in ways that used my knowledge of treating and preventing athletic injuries in conjunction with my athletic back ground. While I developed a great base of the physical fitness model, I dove into the nutritional side of fitness and found that nutrition was as important as the exercise itself. I have taken cooking courses and read extensively on healthy eating to gain additional perspective. Knowing that the food you put in your body is the fuel that gets you through the day is an important aspect of a healthy life style. I enjoy keeping my workouts upbeat and positive. If it is fun you will want to do it again which provides the foundation for clients to see results. Fun does not mean without challenge, but staying positive and having fun encourages you to make exercise a part of your daily life.
I grew up in Middlesboro, KY, graduated from Eastern Kentucky University, and moved to Fort Mitchell in 1993, where I started personal training. Since that time, I have owned my own business, designed over 10,000 workouts, and taught personal training classes at the collegiate level.
I knew I didn’t want to wear a suit to work every day, and I loved the results weight training was doing for my body. I was eager to help others achieve similar results, so personal training was an obvious career path for me. I enjoy helping others, tracking progress, and seeing our clients improve, whether that improvement is gaining muscle, losing weight, or simply learning to live a healthier lifestyle. Personal Training gives me satisfaction in knowing that I am making a positive, lasting difference in people’s lives.
