She is a 200 RYT, through Yoga Alliance, and has a 100 hour specialty certification in Yoga for Athletes.  She also holds certifications Les Mills BodyAttack, BodyFlow, BodyPump and RPM; Stages Indoor Cycling and Flight; DK Body Pilates; and Animal Flow Level 1. She currently teaches BodyPump, RPM, Hot Barre, BodyAttack, BodyFlow, Fusion, Chair Yoga, Balance Board, and Warrior Yoga and takes personal training clients.

When she was pregnant with her first child, Meghan was 120 pounds heavier.  “I learned how quickly lifestyle and diet can get out of control.”  Meghan came to work (with her baby) in the Wilson’s playcenter in 2006.  Being in a supportive, healthy environment led to weight loss, fitness, and education.  In 2009 she became a personal trainer and was excited to help others.  She maintained a healthy diet and weight through her other three pregnancies, and her passion for exercise grew to encompass group fitness as well.

“I love motivating people to feel empowered and successful; to do something they didn’t think they could do, or be someone they didn’t think they could be.”  She also finds it uplifting to see the camaraderie that develops within a class or training session, and the gym community.

Darla Tharp

blankDarla Tharp is certified in Les Mills BodyAttack, BodyFlow, and BodyPump, and has been teaching at Wilson’s since January 2017. She developed a love of fitness, sports, and the outdoors at an early age.  In middle and high school, Darla participated in softball and basketball, ran as a sprinter on the track team, and took dance classes for fun.  In college, she continued to play softball and had a regular fitness routine that included running and resistance training.  After college her focus shifted to half marathons and triathlons. “I really enjoy mixing up my routine and trying different types of physical challenges which brought me to Wilson’s group fitness.  Attending classes in addition to running, biking, and swimming is a great way to increase strength, stamina, agility, and flexibility.”

Because four of Darla’s passions are physical fitness, music, teaching, and socializing, becoming a group fitness instructor was a natural fit. She loves helping others to reach their fitness goals and maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle. “I feel blessed to be able to teach classes to the beat of funky music while being immersed in the energy of the wonderful people around me.  It is a great way to challenge my own fitness capacity as well as those who attend class.”

When Darla isn’t in the gym, she’s either doing scientific research at the University of Missouri or is at one of her son’s many sporting events.

blankJoy Millard holds multiple certifications including Les Mills BodyPump and Body Flow, Yoga Fit Level 1, and Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) Group Fitness. She’s not sure how long she’s been at Wilson’s but knows it’s a long time because she taught through both her pregnancies, and as of 2016, her two boys are 24 and 27. Joy stays because she truly enjoys it. “I love interacting with clients, being a bit of a clown and having a good time. Fitness can be a ‘family’ activity and encouraging the class members is fun.” Joy loves the community of regular folks trying to stay active in a sedentary world. “I love changing the shapes of our bodies, calming our minds and having a good time.”

Joy currently teaches BodyPump and Yoga. And she wants her member to know, when she’s singing BodyPump songs, she’s usually making up the words.

blankAnne Janku holds a Yoga Alliance 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training. She first joined Wilson’s in 1986 and began instructing yoga in 2003. She’s been a competitive runner, a US Cycling Federation bike racer, and a triathlete. She originally pursued teaching to deepen her own practice; in her words, “teaching to learn.”

Anne particularly likes teaching at Wilson’s because the participants are involved in a variety of physical experiences and come to class physically and mentally prepared to try new things. “I really enjoy the creative challenge of meeting people on the mat and helping them progress in their yoga journey.”

blankLauren is certified in Les Mills BodyPump and began teaching it at Wilson’s in the spring of 2020.  Lauren grew up playing volleyball and running with the cross-country and long-distance track teams at her school.  As she got a full-time job and moved into adult life, she would occasionally run or do some other form of cardio, but never found something to do consistently… until she discovered the BodyPump classes at her local gym in southern CA and got hooked!  She and her husband quickly became “regulars”.  What she enjoys most about BodyPump is the ability to go as heavy or light as you need to with the weights, and the life-long journey it plays towards physical health.  “I am often in classes with people ranging from their teens to their 80’s.  It’s encouraging to see that this is something that can be incorporated into my lifestyle long-term.”

Lauren wanted to become an instructor because she enjoys encouraging people towards better physical, emotional, and spiritual health, and thought it would be a great opportunity to learn how to become a better coach.  What she likes best about teaching is meeting new people, and learning the new BodyPump releases!  She loves providing a fun, safe environment that encourages people to challenge themselves.

Eric doesn’t call what he does ‘teaching’ class… instead, he’s ‘coaching’ class.  He’s encouraging and motivating his class to reach new heights.  When class is done, he enjoys getting to know his participants better so it feels like a family.  People in his class ask where someone is when a regular doesn’t make it.  Eric also runs a GRIT Facebook page called Wilson’s GRIT Athletes, where he posts articles about the benefits of HIIT (high intensity interval training) and why it’s great for you.  In the summer, he holds GRIT at the Beach Club; a special class outside where participants earn a free day for themselves and a friend at the Beach Club.
