Amy Biddle

National Council on Strength and Fitness Personal Trainer Certification

Yoga Alliance 200 hour Certified Yoga Teacher

Virginia Tech BS Animal Science, Biology

I am a lifelong horse lover and equestrian athlete. I retired as a medical technologist to follow my dream of becoming a horse trainer, a personal trainer, and a yoga instructor. I have competed several horses in Dressage, winning multiple year-end and series awards, including first level with “Letter to Elise” at the 2003 Virginia State Horse Champion Schooling Shows. I have also competed in numerous 5K, 10K, 15K, 10 mile and half marathon races. Physical fitness and strength training have positive effects on my riding and I am excited to share this with others.

Client testimonial: “Amy is my personal trainer and I have made so much progress with her! She is also my first yoga teacher and the one who made me fall in love with yoga! If you’re looking for someone who understands you and the best way to build your strength and mobility, you definitely need to schedule some sessions with her. Just do it. You won’t regret giving yourself this gift.”

Heather Boggess

American Council on Exercise Certified Personal Trainer

Integrative Corrective Exercise Instructor Certified

Zumba, Zumba Strong and Zumba Kids qualified; Kettlebell AMPD certified; TRX and RIP qualified

Dillard University, BA degree in  Business Management

Family and our health are of utmost importance to me. I want to be there for my family so sometimes you have to think about yourself first to make sure you can take care of home and the needs there. I love engaging in outdoor activities and spending quality time with family and friends. I have played various sports, and played volleyball in college on scholarship.

Client testimonial: “Working with Heather has been a wonderful experience. I love that she helps me focus on lifelong habits and works to help teach me exercises that I can keep and continue using on my own. I also love how she looks at this experience as a whole, asking about how I’m eating and what’s going on in my life. I love coming into my personal training sessions! I definitely feel stronger and happier as a result. She really helped me be able to focus on my body in a healthy way and see it as an act of self care and love. I would recommend this to everyone!”

Alyssa Dalrymple

Centered Being certification for Pilates Mat, Pilates Reformer, Wunda Chair, Tower

Strayer University – Computer Information Systems

Paid tax preparer

I started doing Pilates at Powell as a member, and pursued certifications in order to be able to help others find the happiness and the wellbeing it brings to their movement and lives. I am married with two daughters, two grandsons, four dogs and a cat. I love reading, gardening, being outdoors and Pilates.I

Client testimonial: “I’ve been enjoying Pilates class for several years with Alyssa. The exercises she offers on the Reformer help keep my spine in alignment and support my flexibility and strength. She suggests many props that assist with the exercises, which means that just about anyone can take and benefit from this personal or small group training.”

Katie Hutchins 

American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer

American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Group Fitness Instructor

In 2010, I lost over 50 pounds to be a better role model for my children, and went from couch potato to distance runner. I started teaching small group fitness in 2011 (circuit training, TRX, kettlebells) and have helped women, like myself, start their own wellness journeys. I am excited to help you find your own fitness, and celebrate you!

I live with my husband, kids, and menagerie of pets in Madison. I enjoy running, and have completed over a dozen half marathons and four full marathons. I am also a voracious reader, love to sing and play my ukulele, and participate both on and offstage in community theatre.

Christine Kauffman

American Council on Exercise Certified Personal Trainer

American Council on Exercise Certified Group Fitness Instructor

Beachbody LIVE® training: Certified Instructor for P90X, Core de Force, Country Heat and PiYo classes

B-Board Workout® certified instructor for B-Board full body balance exercise classes

My motivation to support others with their fitness goals stems from my own personal journey: to address some health concerns, I lost 115 pounds through diet and exercise and am now driven by my passion to “pay it forward.” I firmly believe that you too have the power to achieve your own health and fitness goals.   When I’m not in the gym, I enjoy being active outdoors through biking, kayaking, and paddle boarding.

Sharon Steele

Aquatic Therapy and Rehab Institute (ATRIC) Certified

Aquatic Exercise Association Certified

Arthritis Foundation Certified

Aerobics and Fitness Association of America Group Exercise Instructor

BioExercise Coach and AquaStretch Practitioner

I have forty years of experience as an exercise professional, with training that includes land and water therapy.

Client testimonial: “I am Sharon Steele’s first pre-surgical patient for her “prehab” program, and that made me a very fortunate woman. I have osteoarthritis and was scheduled for knee surgery this summer. I had eight personal prehab sessions with Sharon in the pool before my surgery in August 2021. I was ready! I was up and walking with a walker the day of surgery. I only spent one night in hospital. When I came home I used the walker for only two days before my home health physical therapist released me to use a cane. Less than a week after surgery I am hanging wash on my lines! All of my health care providers are amazed at how well I am doing. I feel great and do not have much pain. Prehab makes so much sense. Strengthening the muscles you will need to support your new joint before surgery replacement makes rehabilitation much easier. By the way, I am 74 years old!”
