Either of these instructors may be teaching this class:

Allison Zimbalist is certified in Les Mills BodyAttack and started teaching at Wilson’s in 2018.  She grew up playing sports, including softball, soccer, lacrosse, and track.  In college, she played lacrosse and participated in various intramural sports.  In grad school, she found that adult sports were not as accessible so she got into long-distance running; she has completed several half and full marathons.  Now that Allison has a family and young children, she has found a great love for group fitness , which allows her to challenge herself with great music and great energy!  She has her doctorate in physical therapy and has a great interest in health and fitness.  She loves BodyAttack because of the music and the challenging sports-style choreography it offers.  “You really can’t come to class without getting a great workout!”

Allison loves teaching because she loves to help others push themselves maybe a little more than they thought they would, all while working out and having fun doing it.  She wants members to know that BodyAttack is such a great class because it really allows you to work hard, no matter what fitness level you are at.  There are many options throughout class and we just want you to come have fun with us!

 

Ashleigh Stundebeck is certified in Les Mills BodyAttack and started teaching at Wilson’s this fall.  She became an instructor because she wanted to share her enthusiasm of fitness with others in the hopes of making them love it as much as she does.  She likes to show people that exercise is fun, and that group fitness classes bring people together.  Ashleigh has always enjoyed working out and running and appreciates how it makes her feel.  Its a great stress reliever!  Though many people workout in order to look a certain way, Ashleigh wants them to understand how good they can feel.  “Routine exercise can really change your life!”  Being new to the instructor side of group fitness, Ashleigh is excited to learn more every class.  She encourages her members to please ask questions to learn more, too!

Katie Tillman

Katie Tillman

Katie is certified in Les Mills BodyAttack, Sh’Bam and RPM, Stages Indoor Cycling and Flight, and YogaFit Level 1, and is also a Certified Personal Trainer through ISSA and SCW.   She currently teaches Hot and Cool Fusion, RPM, Flight, and Sh’Bam.  She took personal training clients and coached Team Training for a couple of years when her kids were babies, but now she works full time and teaches group fitness in her free time.

Katie started teaching because she always took dance growing up, and almost all group fitness classes involve teaching choreography to music, so it felt right.  She also felt like group fitness inspired her to become fitter and healthier than she could have ever become on her own.  She continues to teach because the gym is like a second family.  Her fellow instructors and class members are her friends, and class is a space of acceptance and positivity – she goes to class to have fun!  “It’s one of the rare opportunities that, as an adult, you get to participate in a fun, voluntary group activity that doesn’t involve drinking!”

Her favorite part about teaching is making people feel successful and proud – that can happen at any level, and it is key to getting people to come back and make fitness a permanent lifestyle.  She also likes motivating people to work harder than they ever would outside the studio – and like it!

Lacey R / Laura S

Either of these instructors may be teaching this class.

Lacey Sweeten Randall started at Wilson’s in 2017 and is currently teaching Aerial Yoga, Aerial 101, Aerial Silks Level 1, Board Balance, and BodyFlow.  Her certifications include 250 hours Aerial Yoga Training through Aerial Yoga Academy and Les Mills BodyFlow.  Lacey used to hate working out or pretty much any kind of fitness or sport.  After college, she tried out a few gyms with little success… until 2015 when she discovered Wilson’s and her first fitness love – aerial silks.  The challenge to both mind and body combined with an amazing support system surrounding the classes finally helped her find her love of fitness.

Lacey became an instructor because she wanted to support others in their fitness goals like her instructors had done for her.  She loves the community in the group fitness classes.  She looks forward to coming to her classes to get a whole workout, share her knowledge, and also for the social experience.  Lacey encourages everyone to try a class that is outside of their comfort zones.  “Many times I’ve had people tell me that they had wanted to try an aerial class or board balance but were intimidated.  Please don’t be!  These classes are open to EVERYBODY for a reason.  Come try them out!”

 

Laura Sobieck made a lifestyle change. After having children, she worked hard to lose 40 lbs. and in the process developed a love for fitness; especially group classes. She then went from participating to teaching at Wilson’s when she obtained her certification in Les Mills BodyPump in January 2012.  She followed with certifications in GRIT in March 2013 and BodyFlow in 2018..  She currently teaches BodyFlow and Board Balance.

Though she had no formal training, as she became active in fitness and progressed to instructing, she educated herself about nutrition and exercise philosophies like martial arts, HIIT, Pilates, weight training, TRX, yoga, and Tabata. Laura doesn’t have just one preferred method of working out. She tried to incorporate a wide variety of cross training into her own workouts.

“I love being a part of people’s daily routine in the group setting and encouraging them to achieve their own fitness goals–whether that be just starting out, moving to another level, or trying something new.”

Cindy B / Jen S

Either of these instructors may be teaching this class:

Cindy Brengarth has taught many fitness classes at various facilities around Columbia, MO since the early 1980’s and started teaching at Wilson’s in 1988 – the same year that she became an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor.  She also holds a YogaFit Level 1 certification and a BS in Nursing from UMC.  She currently teaches Kettleworx, TBW, and Yoga.

As a nurse Cindy believes you invest in your health or pay into your illness and so she loves to inspire people to take care of their health.  She likes getting to know the members and helping them love themselves to health and fitness.  “Together we will feel the breath of life in our lungs and hearts as we work our way to fitness.  It is never too late to begin a program to improve your health.  I am here to help you achieve your goals!”

Jen Snawder has been a group fitness instructor since 2012, but joined the Wilson’s team in 2018.  She has her Group Fitness certification through AFAA and is certified in Les Mills BodyCombat, which she currently teaches.  Jen started teaching classes in college; she always preferred group fitness to other workouts – its just more fun to her!  She has taught strength, cardio, cycling, yoga, and kickboxing over the years.  She taught Turbo Kick before she discovered BodyCombat, and has taught classes in St. Louis, Columbia, and at a fitness camp in Florida.

Jen wanted to become an instructor because she loves the atmosphere of group fitness and working out with others.  She feels like she learned an incredible amount about herself through teaching group fitness.  “I love how I am always being challenged as an instructor, whether it is connecting with others, the physical workout, or the art of coaching.”  The reciprocated enthusiasm between everyone in a class is beyond anything she has experienced.  The energy is empowering and she is very drawn to it.  Every class is more than just a workout;  it is an event, an experience.  The instructors who create that unique experience inspire and challenge her to bring that to her own members, and that is the beauty of group fitness – everyone growing stronger together, every class.

When she’s not teaching BodyCombat, you’ll find her taking BodyPump, RPM, Fusion, and other Wilson’s classes; baking; and enjoying a hot, sunny day!

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; YogaFit Level 1; and Animal Flow Level 1. She currently teaches BodyPump, RPM, Hot Barre, BodyAttack, Animal Flow, Kickboxing, 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.

Tina England

Tina England

Tina got her start in fitness in the early 90’s as a group exercise participant and was invited to train as an instructor for a local health club in Amarillo, TX.  She started with aquatic exercise and delved into as many facets of that format as she could find, excelling as an instructor.  Through the years, she branched out to teaching various aerobics, strength and flexibility, bootcamp and HIIT style, yoga, and pilates classes.  More recently, her interests lean toward the aerial arts.

Tina is certified in AEA, AFAA, ICSA Pilates, Moms in Motion, Hydrofit, and Arthritis Foundation.  She has been an instructor for 27 years and started at Wilson’s in 1992.  She currently teaches water aerobics, pilates, yoga, aerial yoga, and aerial hammock skills.  Over the years, she has found that her overall health (physical and mental) is better and she is capable of so much more than others her age because she has stayed fit.  She loves teaching because of the interaction with her participants and seeing them evolve.  As they become stronger and more proficient, she likes to find new or different ways to challenge them and help them achieve their goals.  “Seeing participants’ smiles, hearing their success stories, and watching their confidence grow proves to me that I am making a difference in their lives.”

In her spare time, she makes cakes – big/small, fancy, fun, fondant, crazy cakes!  It started when her son asked her to make a soccer ball cake for his 11th birthday.  She thought, “Hey, I’ve watched a lot of Cake Boss – I’ll give it a go!”  Her background in graphic design and art transferred over nicely and she’s been creating fun, edible works of art ever since.

Brenda H / Travis R

Either of these instructors may be teaching this class:

Brenda Heavin 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.

 

 

For Travis Ritter, 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!”

Lisa holds certifications in Les Mills BodyStep, BodyPump, BodyCombat, BodyFlow, BodyVive, BOSU and Practical Pilates. She has completed YogaFIT Levels 1, 2 and 3, and is also certified by the American Council on Exercise in personal training. She began her fitness journey after the birth of her second child, taking aerobics classes at a local college. 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. 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.”

Kelie Morgan

Kelie holds certifications in Les Mills BodyStep, BodyPump, BodyAttack, GRIT, BodyFlow, and CXWorX, and has completed YogaFit Levels 1, 2, and 3. She is also a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF) and has her USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach and has achieved her CrossFit Level 1 certification.

Always athletic, Kelie was active in sports when she was younger, but didn’t discover group fitness until after she had her second baby and needed to get 60 pounds of pregnancy off. She started attending BodyStep and was instantly hooked. “The endorphins and the adrenaline were real and so were the results!” Less than  year later, she went to her first training. That was in 2008 and she’s been teaching multiple classes every week since. Currently, Kelie teaches Fusion, BodyStep, and TRX/Kettle Circuit.

At first, becoming an instructor was about the challenge of doing something far outside of her comfort zone. But once she started, it became more about her members. “I realized that I could help them and lift them, even if it was just for one hour a day. It was clear to me then, that this was not just a hobby or a fun pastime for me, it was my passion.”

Kelie wants her participants to know that she has been where they have been.; she’s been overweight and out of shape, she’s been injured, overworked and overstressed. She knows the reasons that stop them from taking that first scary step into the group fitness studio. But she promises, “I will be there to welcome you, introduce you to a friend and above all else, give you a great workout!”

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.
