"I be up in the gym just working on my fitness." Growing up in a health focused family has taught me the importance of staying active, eating (and throwing) my vegetables, multiple diaper changes each day, and getting plenty of naps.​Ever since I grew legs in my mom's belly I've been training to be an elite coach. Hours of back bends (seriously, we have it on film), flutter kicks, push-ups and boxing (the placenta) have got me in peak physical condition and prepared to take you to the next level. ​My typical client is 12 months or younger and ready to commit to a life changing transformation. I also work really well with those who just need a snuggle. Reach out to my personal assistants (mom and dad) to set up an appointment, they control my planner. ​​

I recently moved to Seattle from Wisconsin after graduating from University of Wisconsin-Whitewater as a future educator. From that point on, I have strived for making a difference in as many people's lives as I possibly can. I have found out through trial and error that I can do that best in the fitness industry and I now have found a great home at NW Fitness. Outside of the gym, I enjoy spending time working on cars, playing sports, and especially travelling to new places.

 

Remember the joy you had chasing after your first crush on the playground, taking your first step without pain after a big injury, or mastering something you recently learned. I will helpyou get back to that same sense of joy in the gym and becoming the greatest versionof yourself. If you are interested in experiencing that joy, reach out and let's get started right away!

My path into teaching yoga has been an organic process of unfolding ever since my mom brought me to my first yoga class in 2004. For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to help people in a hands-on way, which led me to studying Public Health and Nursing at the University of Washington. My experience working in many different specialties as a nurse has made clear that no matter what a person was admitted to the hospital for, everyone can benefit from yoga. Yoga is for everyone. It is about more than improving flexibility and strength. The path to mindfulness that yoga creates can positively impact the social, emotional, mental and physical health of anyone. I'm inspired to continue this path of growth within myself and my community. I look forward to sharing this practice with you.​

Howdy, my name is Nick and I love being in the gym! I’ve been in the gym since I turned 12, working out in some form or capacity on and off until now. As such, going to the gym feels like a second home to me no matter where I go. My interests include yoga, MMA, bouldering, video games, DnD, hiking, cooking, and so much more. I am also a part of the Kagyu and Sakya lineages of Tibetan Buddhism so come meditate with me some time!

 

My training incorporates a variety of different disciplines from Olympic weightlifting and Calisthenics, all the way to Bodybuilding and Powerlifting. I focus on cross training and creating programs for specific individuals. I ascribe to the belief that for fitness you need to have a mixture of process and goal oriented training, therefore creating easily achievable goals in an exercise that you love to do is a great way to get those lofty long term goals. Along the way I also get to become friends with my clients. These two things are why being a personal trainer is so fun to me. Seeing my friends hitting the goals they set out to do weeks, months or even years ago is something that I can’t put a price tag on.

I got into fitness to make a difference in the lives of those everywhere searching for a path to long-term health. Truly what gets me up in the morning is the opportunity to teach our members how to lift safely and effectively, along with making exercise fun and engaging. I prefer to keep my training philosophy exceedingly simple. I like to think of it as a four-step comprehensive process:

 

1.) set a series of attainable goals

2.) eat to those goals

3.) lift as heavy as possible under proper technique

4.) ?

 

When I’m not at NWF I enjoy exploring with my fiance, golfing as much as possible, lifting weights, avoiding cardio, and eating as much sushi as I can physically stomach. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible in our collective fitness journey!

Hiya, my name is Alexis! Fitness has played a very large role in my life, from competing in figure skating competitions as a kid, to playing rugby in college and to now competing in powerlifting competitions. I got into personal training during my sophomore year of college, right after going through a transformation and guiding my parents through one. I got my personal training certification and applied to become a trainer at the campus rec center. Since then, I moved across the country and my love for helping people through fitness has not stopped.

 

Fitness is not only something I use to remain physically healthy but also mentally. My goal as a trainer is to not only help you reach any physical goals but also improve your overall mental health. This could be feeling more confident in your own body or just working through life’s stressors. Whatever your goals may be, I would love to help you reach them.

 

When I’m not at the gym, you can usually find me hiking (the only form of cardio that I do) or binge watching the latest dating show on Netflix. If you see me around the gym feel free to stop me with any questions about fitness…or even just to chat about what to watch on Netflix.

I started my yoga journey on a blustery winter night in the high desert of Reno, NV. My sister dragged me into a hot vinyasa class that quite literally changed my life. Having come from years of contact sports, yoga provided the physical (and let's be honest the emotional) therapy I never knew I needed. In 2017 I dove head first into the world of mind body awareness, completing my first 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training in Hatha style yoga. In the early months of 2020, I completed my second 200 hr YTT in Ashtanga and Vinyasa. I love getting inverted, experimenting with arm balances, and cultivating play in my practice. Outside of the gym you can find me biking around the PNW, skiing at Snoqualmie, or finding some good looking rocks to climb! I look forward to seeing you in class soon!

This is an income based sliding scale pricing structure available to all members of our facility. The impetus of the policy was the protests of the murder of George Floyd, as we began to investigate ways to incorporate anti-racist work into our business structure. We are realizing that as individuals and as a community, on the whole, we need to do better for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous & People of Color). Additionally, as a business and institution of health and wellness, we have an obligation to use our platform to do more for BLM. We need to take accountability, as Americans, for systemic injustices being perpetrated on our peers and fellow Americans. This system, which has allowed our European American ancestors and their descendants to flourish, has done so at the detriment of our African American ancestors and their descendants. We recognize this and recognize that it doesn’t represent who we are as individuals, a company or a country. As a result, we are making some changes in our business practices so our contribution doesn’t begin and end with lip service and hopefully actualizes the change we want and believe in. We are prioritizing ongoing conversations around anti-racism work and education on how to uplift BIPOC in the wellness community.

 

One of the ways we are doing this is by offering a sliding scale personal training rate discount due to the racial wealth gap in the US. Wealth gaps among races have grown since the 1970s due to social, political, and institutional factors outside BIPOC’s control. Given cost is a barrier to wellness resources, we will strive to remove this barrier from personal training in our facility. The wealth gap also impacts women and people in the LGBTQ community. The fee structure is based on gross annual income and is as follows:

<$60,000: hourly personal training rate is $10 off regular hourly fees

NW Fitness subsidizes the discount. Our trainers make the same amount per session regardless of a member's qualification for justice pricing.

To apply, please fill out the form in the link below along with emailing last year’s tax return to jessica@nwfitnessgym.com. If there has been a change in pay since then, you may include a letter explaining the situation.
