About Us

Our Story

Do you want to live a healthier life full of energy and vitality?  Do you desire to be more confident and self assured?  Are you concerned about how to start?  Don’t worry we’ve all been there; including us!  We utilize our experience, expertise and compassion to get you the results you need.

In 2004, together as a couple, we changed our lifestyle habits.  We decided to eat only healthy, clean foods and exercise six days per week.  After experiencing the uplifting benefits of a healthy lifestyle (losing weight, reducing stress and feeling more confident ect), we became passionate about helping others do the same.  So we became certified personal trainers and wellness coaches and have been developing our craft since 2006 (credentials and education).  It was amazing how we were able to help change people’s lives for the better in tangible ways (testimonials).  Our approach is sensible, sound, realistic and inspiring.  We are able to connect and tap into to our clients’ deeper motivations to live healthier in all ways.  This approach is still a major tenet and founding principle of Active Wellness.

In 2009 the recession hit and the gym we were training from closed.  However, that didn’t halt our passion or stifle the commitment to our clients.  We opened up our own studio and have been in business since June 2009.  Needless to say, that was a memorable and patriotic 4th of July.

On August 10th, 2014 we joyfully married!  We feel so very blessed to work together to help others feel, look and be their best!

At Active Wellness we are always evolving to explore and discover new ways we can help you be healthier (Exercise Programs).
