Nia Furtado

Personal Trainer | Nutrition Coach

I took a 2 hour Muay Thai class back in Summer of 2010 and that was it, I was hooked on the fit life. I was an avid yogi throughout college and eventually found CrossFit in 2014, that’s when I fell in love with the barbell and lifting heavy – I am no stranger to knowing how intimidating it can be when you’re just starting out, but my goal is to inspire women (and men!) to step into their strength.

Max Taghon

Personal Trainer

I swam competitively from a young age up until the end of high school. After high school, because of a poor diet, and the fact that I no longer swam 5 days a week I started to get overweight and generally out of shape. I decided I wanted to change myself, I was tired of feeling tired. I started going back to the weight room at the YMCA I worked at in an attempt to do something about it. My parents saw the effort I was putting in and bought me some training sessions at an actual gym. Once I learned how to properly workout, I quickly saw a lot of progress. Getting better with my diet was also quite a challenge, but after a lot of trial and error I finally made headway there as well. During this process I quickly saw the positive changes in my body and just regular daily activities. My mental health got better and I had a lot more energy. I had dropped a lot of the extra weight and had gotten a lot stronger, it was a major goal I had set for myself. Because I went through this process of starting at rock bottom and making a huge overall change I know what it takes to reach your goals. I want to help others achieve their fitness goals just like I have. Yes, it's a lot of work, but the health benefits are just too good to ignore. Achieving good health, especially with how the medical and insurance industries are these days, cannot be valued enough. I want to help others be the best versions of themselves and I want to show them how important it is to do weight training.

Kate Martin

Personal Trainer

Growing up I was constantly playing sports and working out with my teams. In the beginning of highschool, I started to do crossfit with my basketball team and I loved it. Near the end of my senior year of high school, I developed an unhealthy relationship with food and struggled with it for quite some time. Once I got to college I was doing better and was able to gain some weight back. Then covid happened and I struggled even more with food than I did before. I was able to talk to a nutritionist to help figure out what was going on and guide me. I started to workout but wasn't taking it that seriously until this past year. I completely fell in love with weightlifting and learning about it, it helped build my confidence and my overall health. I want to be able to help others gain confidence and strength.

Jennifer Mariana

Personal Trainer

I left the corporate world to raise my three, now adult, children as my family was moving throughout the US. When my kids became more independent, I decided to regain my fitness. Starting off with walking, which then turned into running, and eventually as I began to regain my fitness I started doing group fitness classes. With the encouragement of my group fitness instructors and participating in a Big Slim Down program, I transformed my workouts and fitness. I then decided to pay it forward and encourage others to become fit. With this in mind, I became a volunteer coach and then assistant coach for Montgomery Recreation Couch to 5K and Girls on the Run programs. Empowering women and girls to run was so rewarding that I decided to become a Person Trainer to continue encouraging people to regain, maintain, and take their fitness to the next level.
