At Wilson’s, you don’t just get a personal trainer. You get a team of coaches committed to helping you Move Better, Feel Better, Simply Live Better!
Imagine being able to consult with a team of coaches to help you with your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. We’re excited to bring you personal wellness coaching as a part of a multi-faceted approach to your health. Our personal coaches are professionals who not only target physical fitness, but also mind and spirit with an overall lifestyle that will help you connect to your own innate healing power. The idea is to change the state of the nervous system to offset pain and disease through means of top down (meditation, positive affirmation, etc.) and bottom up (movement and breathing techniques) processing.
Wellness Coaching Benefits:

- Improving mental health, including concerns like anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, insomnia, and others.
- Improving neurological issues and complications of stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
- Support for illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
- Overall well-being and healthy aging.

I love learning new things and always growing and improving.”
In 2014, Catina opened the Hot Studios at Wilson’s and designed the new formats, Hot Barre and Fusion (Hot Yoga) exclusively for Wilson’s.

The greatest feeling for me is seeing a light of confidence or success come across their face when they realize they too can do it.” When she’s not at the gym, Janette enjoys spending time with her sweet family. She and her husband have three children, two of which, they’ve had the joy of adopting.
