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.

Megan taught dance and show choir choreography while in high school and college.  She really liked that and missed the connection she got with her students, and so she knew she would enjoy teaching Aerial Yoga.  “Yoga has a special place in my heart and aerial has really helped my practice grow.”  What she likes most about teaching are her students; each has their own special skills and she loves seeing them grow in their journey.  She encourages others to never be afraid to try something new.  It may be scary at first, but it can change your life!

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.

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.”

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.”

Emily Beydler

blankThough she’s been a group fitness junkie for over 15 years, Emily became an instructor in 2018.  Certified in Les Mills BodyAttack, 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!”

Emily loves the energy of group fitness.  She became an instructor because she felt that when one is going to classes all the time, it makes sense to keep the progression going.  This was also the time that Wilson’s was getting CxWorX for the first time so she was excited to get in on the ground floor of such a great program.  She enjoys developing friendships with other instructors and getting to know them through working together.  Emily loves motivating people to work harder and make changes to their fitness levels.  Also, she secretly loves having the mic and being able to talk for an hour straight – like one giant monologue/stand-up routine!

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.”

Hot Barre*

Date: May 03

Time: 5:30 pm-6:15 pm

This barre inspired workout is one of the fastest, most effective ways to burn calories and get toned! Yes, Hot Barre is centered around a ballet barre and inspired by the workout routine by ballet legend Lotte Berk, but the barre is simply there to provide stability, balance, and support as you move through exercises that target the core, glutes, arms, and legs. No dance experience necessary, you just need to know these three numbers: 95 degrees, 45 minutes, 800 calories! Not recommended during pregnancy. Please consult your physician.

blankLaurie holds a KettleWorX certification and teaches all 3 formats: Resistance, Cardio and Core. She’s also received in-house training and teaches Hot Barre in the hot studio & studio barre. Laurie has taught at Wilson’s since 2014 when another instructor encouraged her to go for her aspiration of becoming an instructor.  She finds teaching to be great motivation for trying to be a better version of herself. “I am constantly learning and evolving as an instructor. And I meet fabulous people along the way!” As a new mom, finding time to work out is a struggle, but she feels it’s more important than ever to stay active and healthy with a little one watching everything she does. Working out has always been a great stress-reliever and way to clear her mind; now, in seeking balance in her new role as a mother, she finds it’s also an absolute necessity for her sanity. “My favorite part about teaching is the opportunity to provide that stress relief for someone else. I feel honored to be a fitness guide and do my best to take a little off your plate and give you a great workout in which you don’t have to worry or think, just have fun and MOVE!”

When she’s not teaching, Laurie is a Property Manager at Callahan & Galloway, momma to Evie Gene, and wife to Kyle.

Amanda O / Amber B

Either of the following instructors may be teaching this class:

blankAmanda Oleiro knows how to bring fun to fitness, and, as a former competitive swimmer, runner and rower, she knows how to push her body to the limit. Applying that combination to her teaching makes her members work hard and love every minute of it. Amanda has been teaching at Wilson’s since 2013 with a certification in Les Mills Sh’Bam, and also Les Mills GRIT Series. She also teaches Hot Barre in the hot studio.

Group fitness helped Amanda appreciate all her body does for her. “I wanted to be an instructor in hopes of giving back and helping others feel the same appreciation.” The best thing she likes about teaching is ‘getting goofy and sassy’ in order to put smiles on the faces of her participants. “I love getting to know members. If you ever want to talk fitness and fun, by all means, come talk to me.”

 

blankAmber Blumberg is a Les Mills BodyPump certified instructor and started teaching at Wilson’s in 2019.  She chose to become a fitness instructor because group fitness has had such a positive impact on her life, mostly because the instructors were so motivating and the environment so welcoming.  She loves connecting with people and loves fitness so teaching allows her to incorporate both of these things at the same time.  She currently teaches BodyPump and Balance Board classes.

About 6 years ago, Amber decided to make health and fitness a priority in her life after realizing that her weight and lifestyle were holding her back.  She had never prioritized fitness as an adult and wanted to make a change.  She lost almost 100 pounds, mainly because of her involvement in group fitness at Wilson’s!  She started attending lots of different classes and fell in love with yoga and BodyJam.  In the last year, she started to focus more on strength with classes like BodyPump and GRIT.

Amber loves teaching because she is able to educate people on their health and fitness.  She also loves the opportunity to meet new people.  “Watching people grow in their fitness journey is such a reward!”

She loves attending her husband, Eric’s, GRIT classes, too.  “He’s one of my fitness heroes!”  Amber is a middle school band director by day.  She has two sons, Carter and Lyndon, and step-daughter, Trina.
