For 20 years she could be found on the front row, changing her body, getting stronger, and loving the social aspect of working out; making lifelong friends in the process. She took the leap to become an instructor when she moved to Columbia with her family from Austin, Texas in 2006 starting with BodyStep. In 2007 she joined the team at Wilson’s and helped expand the group fitness program one format at a time, each an exciting new adventure.

Lisa is a former vocalist and music therapist who brings her love of music and passion for fitness together to motivate her clients, inspiring them to reach their ultimate potential. “I love the electricity that happens when people aspire, together, to conquer their challenges. The moments when the whole room is working hard, when members reach heights they thought were unobtainable, those are the magic moments.” Lisa says the most rewarding thing about teaching is making a difference in people’s lives. “If people walk away from my class feeling empowered, feeling good about themselves, there is no better success.”

She’s taught multiple formats, including step, ‘slide’ and group racquetball and currently teaches RPM and BOSU along with Hot Barre in the hot studio.

Though Betty was athletic as a child, her real start with fitness began when she was 29. After having her first child she began jogging to lose weight. Then she started running races. Then marathons, including the infamous Boston Marathon. She  also played competitive women’s racquetball, biked the MS 150 and took aerobics classes. Betty chose to become an instructor when coaxed by an instructor to channel her passion for working out. “I love sharing the knowledge I have acquired along the way and watching people see that fitness is fun; it gives you energy and makes you feel great!” She wants her members to get excited about living a healthy lifestyle and be good examples for their families and friends, too.

What Betty loves most is motivating people to believe they have an inner athlete, that they can become fitter, and it is never too late! Since she was almost 30 when she began, she inspires her participants simply by walking the walk. “If I can inspire just one person to get healthier each time I lead a class, then I am fulfilled.

Emily Smith

Emily Smith

Emily may be new to teaching at Wilson’s, but she’s a familiar face in group fitness classes. As a front row participant, she was encouraged for years by her instructors to take the next step in her own journey. A self-proclaimed ‘group exercise fanatic,’ in January 2016 she finally took the leap to become an instructor and completed her certification in Les Mills CXWorX.

“I just love exercising in classes so much. It’s fun to meet people through the gym, and the group energy is the best for competitive people, like me. I was going to the gym all the time, so I figured I’d get in on the ground floor of a new Les Mills program here at Wilson’s.” Emily says so far the best things about teaching are making jokes that no one laughs at, and members coming up and telling her how hard a class was or how sore it made them. When they add how much they loved it and that they’ll be back for more, she knows it’s all worth it.

“This 30-minute core class, CX, is a great place for new people to start because it’s short and there are a lot of options. But it’s also great if you’ve been going to the gym for a long time and want to add a short class that will improve your performance in other areas.”

She also holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Nursing and began her teaching career on the college level, instructing nursing students. Janette became an instructor in 2013 when she wanted to learn more about the classes and practices she loved herself. “As I started the process, sharing what I was passionate about came very naturally for me. My medical background adds significantly to the knowledge of exercise I bring to the classes I teach. I find joy in seeing and helping others love their fitness class too.”

Physically active her entire life, Janette seeks athletic adventures. Exercise as a hobby or in competition has always been important to her. For nearly 15 years she’s been a regular participant in group fitness classes and has been running just as long. Through her running career she’s met many significant personal goals including running the Boston Marathon. Group fitness classes have played a tremendous role in helping her achieve these goals.

She particularly loves when she can help someone find a new way, a modification of a pose or an exercise that allows them to get the maximum benefit for their bodies. “The greatest reward for me is seeing a light of confidence or success come across their face when they realize they too can do it.” When she’s not at the gym, Janette enjoys spending time with her sweet family.

Chuck Archer

Chuck has been teaching at Wilson’s for over 18 years, since 1997. He estimates at an average of three per week, he’s taught over 2,800 classes. With a background as a triathlete and cyclist, Chuck has always been active and athletic and initially worked the front desk of the old North location. When attending spinning as an employee, he was frequently required to give up his bike to a member when the classes filled. He realized the only way he could be ensured a  bike was to become an instructor.

When he started, Chuck made his own mixed tapes and practiced in the spin studio when it was vacant. Eventually, with persistence, he was given the opportunity to sub for a regular instructor. Shortly after he obtained his certification from Johnny G Spinning and his own classes.  And he doesn’t see an end in sight. “Perhaps when I get too old to enjoy Metallica or do high speed sprints or endless intervals I might retire, but until then, I will be foaming at the mouth, screaming into my mic and riding as hard as my legs can take me.”

Teaching comes naturally to Vesta, who is a Kindergarten Teacher at Mill Creek Elementary. She enjoys teaching the “big kids” in her free time!

“I consider fitness a passion of mine because I know I feel the difference when I take care of my body. This includes mentally and emotionally! I want to share this with others.” Over the last few years, healthy eating and exercise have become a high priority in her life. Vesta enjoys running half marathons with her husband and trying lots of new recipes! Her interest in nutrition led to the creation of a food blog to share her healthy recipes and her knowledge on clean eating.

Kelly likes to move it, move it. Being on stage is as natural as breathing for this Southern California girl who grew up dancing, but she says, “At the end of the day I’m just happy, ordinary me. Most people would find me boring.” Anyone who knows her would beg to differ.  There is nothing boring about Kelly, on or off the stage.

She taught her first class at Club Woodrail in 1999 and has been teaching at Wilson’s since 2002. Kelly is certified in Les Mills BodyJam, Aerial Yoga. Pilates, and TRX, and currently teaches BodyJam, Aerial Barre, Studio Barre, Sweat & Stretch, Advanced Strength, and Cardio Lengthen & Strengthen.

Kelly enjoys bringing the fun of exercise to a group of individuals who are there for self-improvement. “Learning that we can sweat and smile at the same time makes the thought of going to the gym a treat instead of a chore.” She also feels teaching holds her accountable to maintain her own personal level of fitness and professionalism, and she strives in each of her classes to make a positive impact on someone’s day. While Kelly loves much about her job, her favorite thing is that teaching has given her the very best friends in her life and experiences she treasures.  Coming together with those who share a similar mindset defines her very life. “The relationships I’ve made are priceless.”

Eric has always worked out at the gym, but it wasn’t until 2010, when he got bored on the treadmill, that he attended classes. After a few years as a participant he was challenged by another instructor to take the next step in his fitness career and train as a coach. Eric rose to the challenge and hasn’t stopped since. He now holds three certifications through Les Mills; GRIT, BodyPump, and CXWorX and has been teaching all three classes at Wilson’s since February 2013.

Eric enjoys getting to know his members, watching them get ‘addicted’ to the workout and change their bodies, just like he did. “I like to work out in a team environment. The people in my class push me just like I push them.” As a former TV sports reporter who now makes videos at Veterans United Home Loans, this media buff promotes his classes on social media and uses Facebook groups to communicate and create personal relationships. “I do my best to inform and entertain my class as their coach.”
