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.

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.”

 

Vesta Hotchkiss is certified in Les Mills BodyPump, teaching at Wilson’s since May of 2014.  She participated in many sports growing up and has always loved being physically active.  After attending TigerX classes at Mizzou, she fell in love with group fitness.  Upon graduating, she joined Wilson’s and started attending many classes… but she was intimidated by BodyPump and did not try it right away.  Once she did, she was hooked, and it became her favorite class!  It still is, along with BodyCombat, BodyAttack, Yoga, and BodyFlow.

Vesta became a regular BodyPump participant and was always in the front row.  When her instructor, Lisa Kent, came up to her after class and said, “You know, if you know the choreography better than I do, then it is time to get certified!”  Vesta laughed her off at first, but the more she thought about it, the more she liked the idea!  She got certified right away.  She loves everything about group fitness; the music, the movements, the people.  She loves how it brings people together, creates relationships, and challenges people to push themselves.  She loves being their cheerleader and their coach.  “Fitness changes lives!”

Vesta teaches kindergarten at Mill Creek Elementary and has taught in Columbia for 9 years.  She has a wonderful husband, Phil, who loves coming to her Saturday classes and being in the front row!  They have a two year-old son, Auggie, who might be a BodyPump instructor some day!  She is a health food nut and enjoys talking about healthy eating.

Jennifer holds a Basic Life Saving certification and is trained as a Water Aerobics Trainer by Tina Price. She currently teaches Aqua Blast. As an avid swimmer and water aerobics participant, her instructors were so encouraging to her she wanted to pass that along to others. When she became an instructor, she sought to challenge not only herself, but also her class members to better fitness through the joy of water aerobics. She finds that by teaching, she learns so much more herself. She began at Wilson’s in 2015 and loves teaching here. “Being part of this organization is a huge bonus!”

Jennifer also has a background in circuit training, and is a former competitive weight-lifter and she wants people to know it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner, expert or anything in between, water aerobics is an awesome workout that will get you fit in no time. “I highly recommend checking out a class. You will be surprised just how many muscles you will use—some you may have forgotten about.”

Kelly likes to move it, move it. 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.

She taught her first class at Club Woodrail in 1999 and has been teaching at Wilson’s since 2002. Kelly is certified in Les Mills BodyJam, Aerial Yoga. Pilates, and TRX, and currently teaches BodyJam, Aerial Barre, Studio Barre, Sweat & Stretch, Advanced Strength, and Cardio Lengthen & Strengthen.

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.”

Amanda has been teaching Les Mills BodyStep at Wilson’s since becoming certified in 2016.  She also teaching Board Balance classes outside during the summer.  She use to hate working out and going to the gym until she was inspired by some wonderful Wilson’s instructors (Lisa K and Sara M).  Soon, as a participant, her love for fitness classes grew; she wanted to become a teacher so she could motivate others to love it (and working out in general) like those instructors did for her!

Amanda believes working out isn’t something we “have to do”, but something we can “love to do”!  Group fitness helped her feel better about herself… mind, body, and soul.  She is thankful for all of the Les Mills programs that make coming to the gym FUN!
