Betty Bohon

Betty Bohon

Betty is certified through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) in Group Fitness, Les Mills in RPM and BodyVive, and has trained for BOSU and TRX. A fixture at Wilson’s Fitness since 1996, her teaching career began in the early 80’s. 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. I have done the job that I love so much.”

She has completed YogaFIT Levels 1, 2 and 3, and is also certified by the American Council on Exercise in personal training.

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. She currently teaches BodyPump, BodyCombat and BodyFlow and works as the Assistant Group Fitness Manager.

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.”

Emily Beydler

Emily Beydler

Though she’s been a group fitness junkie for over 15 years, Emily became an instructor in 2018.  Certified in Les Mills BodyAttack and DK Body Mat Pilates, she currently teaches BodyAttack, Total Body Workout (TBW), and Hot Barre.  Emily has been active her whole life, but started taking group fitness classes after college and became hooked!  She had always wanted to become an instructor, but didn’t know if and when that would happen… then when one of her favorite classes was taken off the schedule due to lack of instructors, the time seemed right.

Not only has becoming an instructor changed her own fitness level, but she loves being able to help fellow members challenge theirs as well.  Having members tell her they fit into their “goal” pants or that they are feeling good in the later stages of their pregnancy is so rewarding and pushes her to continue growing in her own journey, so she can help people continue to grow in theirs.  She also really loves the friendships and camaraderie that are forged in group fitness classes.  She wouldn’t trade this “job” for anything in the world.  It’s two of her favorite things rolled into one – working out and being with friends.

Emily wants members to know that if she can do it, they can do it.  When she found out she was pregnant with quadruplets in 2015, she gave away all of her “regular size” clothes and was certain she would never look the same again.  While her body (and her life) has changed since then, she finally began exercising again when the babies were 18 months old, and slowly but surely, she started to feel like herself again.  “It’s not about what shape you’re in, what size you are, or what you think a “gym” person looks like.  This is your health journey and what matters is that you show up.  Just come.  Group fitness is a truly a no-judgement zone and you will not find a more encouraging group of people to spend an hour with.  Let your instructors and your classmates be your cheerleaders and come enjoy your workout!”

Jenna R / Amanda M

Either of these instructors may be teaching this class:

Jenna Rose is certified in Les Mills BodyPump, BodyStep, Sh’Bam, and BodyVive. She’s been a group fitness instructor since 2000 when she taught step at Wilson’s in Jefferson City. Jenna has taught continuously since then, at Wilson’s in Columbia from 2000-2005 and from 2012 to present. Jenna currently teaches BodyPump and BodyStep.

Jenna decided to go into teaching because she loved taking group fitness classes and felt passionately about the benefits of exercise to mind, body and quality of life. “I wanted to share it with others and inspire them to make it part of their daily lives.”

Once she discovered and became certified in Les Mills classes, she’s never taught anything else. “I loved the professional choreography and great music the programs provide every quarter, as well as safe and effective workouts that deliver results.”

 

Amanda Mielke joined Wilson’s in May 2021 and holds certifications in Les Mills BodyCombat and BodyPump, and AFAA Group Fitness.  She grew up doing (and coaching) gymnastics and went on to cheer at the University of South Florida.  She began taking Zumba classes in high school and started teaching it right when she got to college.  Zumba opened her up to the world of group fitness and she fell in love!  She transitioned from teaching Zumba to more freestyle classes – bootcamps, HIIT, core, weightlifting – and later started teaching Les Mills.  She previously managed a rhythm based cycle studio and has always loved trying out new class formats.

Amanda wanted to become an instructor because teaching and leading has always come naturally to her; she was a gymnastics and cheerleading coach, and a high school math teacher.  “Becoming an instructor has allowed me to align my passion for health and fitness with my teaching experience.”  She loves the community that comes with teaching group fitness and has met some of her best friends in classes.  She feels that there is something so special about being in a room filled with people who are all working toward goals to become the best versions of themselves.

Amanda, her husband, Connor, and their three dogs, Stanley, Benny, and Charley, are new to Columbia and she’s very excited to get to know the members of Wilson’s!
