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.”

Darla Tharp

Darla 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.

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.”

Travis Ritter

Travis Ritter

For Travis, fitness is a way of life. A tennis player from a young age through high school, he now actively participates in triathlons. As of October 2018, he has completed 30+ triathlons of all different distances, including two Ironman distance races.
Travis uses indoor cycling and yoga to train for races year round. In RPM and Flight, the group atmosphere, the upbeat music, and the variations in the releases/profiles make the workouts challenging yet fun. Yoga has improved his overall lifestyle by reducing stress, reducing his chance for overuse injuries, and improving his mental focus.
When Travis decided to become certified to teach Les Mills RPM, Stages Flight and Yoga, he combined his cycling knowledge with a Bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training to become an authentic and well-rounded instructor with much to offer his members. Now he enjoys helping others reach their goals, facilitating fitness to enrich their lives the way it’s enhanced his own. He’s been teaching at Wilson’s since 2015.  “Don’t be intimidated to try a new class at Wilson’s. The instructors want to help you through, so if a class interests you, try it!”

She also holds certifications in Oh Baby! Fitness (a pre- and post-natal exercise program); Les Mills BodyAttack, BodyPump and RPM; Stages Indoor Cycling and Flight; Pilates; and holds her YogaFit Level 1. She currently teaches BodyPump, RPM, Hot Barre, BodyAttack, and Pilates 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, training session, and the gym community.

Emily Smith

Emily Smith

Emily became an instructor at Wilson’s in 2016, just after turning 40.  She is certified in Les Mills CxWorX and BodyCombat and currently teaches both, in addition to Total Body Workout (TBW).  She played sports into college and exercise was always important to her after that.  After getting married and having kids, it became more difficult to find time and motivation to work out.  Two years after her second son was born, she finally recommitted to exercise and loves the Les Mills classes and instructors (and the playcenters!) at Wilson’s.  In fact, several years ago, her husband was offered a job in a different city and the first thing she did was research if any gyms there offered Les mills classes!  Luckily, they stayed in Columbia and five years later, she got certified in her first program, CxWorX.

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!

Amy Appold

Amy Appold

Amy, by her own definition, is a latecomer to group fitness. She worked out for the first time in her life at age 39 after undergoing treatment for cancer, but it didn’t take long for her to become ‘addicted.’ Amy is certified in Les Mills BodyStep and BodyPump and has been teaching at Wilson’s since the fall of 2008. Becoming an instructor was the next logical goal for her once she acquired her personal fitness level as it seemed to fit her skills; Amy is a virtuoso violinist and has a vast background as a professional musician and now teaches her own violin students. Being a group fitness instructor also fit her personality. “It was a challenge, and I love a challenge.”

Amy encourages her participants to strive to reach their goals with as much detail, excellence and drive as they can. “I love it when I can help someone realize that they can do it; that they are doing it, and that they love doing it, more than they thought they would.”

As a two-time cancer survivor who began her pursuit of physical fitness later in life, she wants her members to know that it doesn’t take anything they don’t already have to become physically fit. “If I can do it, you can do it!”

Amanda 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. 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.”

Brenda has been a familiar face at Wilson’s since 2000, when she got her start as a fitness instructor teaching kickboxing, then spinning.  After a few moves and a break to focus on her school and classroom, Brenda came back as instructor in 2017, earning her certifications in Les Mills RPM and Stages Flight.  She currently teaches both.

Brenda wanted to become an instructor because teaching comes naturally for her.  She enjoys team workouts and making it fun!  She loves the relationships she has built with her members.  She loves group fitness, and her other passion is teaching first graders!  Brenda has been married to her husband, James, for 26 years.  They have a daughter attending Mizzou and a son at Rock Bridge high school.

Yoga Nidra Meditation*

Date: May 16

Time: 6:45 pm-7:15 pm

In Yoga Nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light withdrawal of the five senses (pratyahara) with four of his or her senses internalized, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions. The yogic goal of both paths, Yoga Nidra and meditation, are the same, a state of meditative consciousness called Samadhi. No teacher present and props to aid in comfort are welcome.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT), one of the hottest fitness trends on the planet, is the fastest way to get fit and in shape. Short, sharp bursts of effort allow you to reach maximum training zones and that’s the secret to athletic performance.

Eric Blumberg

Eric started teaching at Wilson’s in 2013, when he became certified in Les Mills GRIT.  An ACE-Certified Personal Trainer, he also taught Les Mills CxWorX and BodyPump for a time, but then decided to focus solely on his first love… GRIT, which he dubs “the toughest workout in the gym”.  Eric likes to be challenged to push his personal limits and so he brings that same feeling to his classes.  He challenges his GRIT family to push themselves past what they think they can do to reach their next level of fitness.

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.
