Julie Westenfelder

Julie Westenfelder

I have lived in the Anthony Wayne district all my life.   I graduated from Anthony Wayne High School and then got my bachelors degree from Bowling Green State University.   I have 2 boys, Isaac and Ethan, who are both Anthony Wayne students and participate in cross country, basketball, and track.   I am a certified W.I.T.S. personal trainer, certified group exercise instructor, certified TRX® instructor, and a certified Spinning® instructor.   I have been teaching group exercise classes since 2005 and have been a personal trainer since 2010.   As an added challenge I enjoy running and have completed 4 half marathons!

I decided to become a personal trainer after I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.   That diagnosis changed my life direction and it became crystal clear that I wanted to help people anyway that I could just like the surgeons/nurses helped me through my surgery/recovery!   I love the one on one relationship that you build with each client and the results are amazing!   This is my full time job and I love changing people’s lives!

"To inspire, motivate and create a better you" perfectly describes my goals for my personal training clients.   My wide range of experience includes working with preschoolers on gross motor skills, school athletes and sports conditioning, weight loss for all ages, and even the older generation on improving balance and functional movements.   If you have the desire and determination to work toward your goals I can help you achieve them!

Mary Dressel

Mary Dressel

As a child and teen I built a strong physical foundation through competitive gymnastics. As an adult however, my commitment to fitness and general wellness was an on-again off-again thing. A few years ago I began running for the first time. I went from my first 5k in April of 2012, to a full marathon the following April. And then in typical me fashion, I quit running. After almost two years of doing nothing, I slowly started running again, and going to Julie's studio. I got serious about fitness, and ran another full marathon in October of 2015, taking 13 minutes off my time! I know that this was due being more fully fit, and I have Julie to thank. My hope is that I can help others, like Julie helped me, to realize that they are more capable of reaching whatever goals they have, and even surpass them.

Outside of the studio I am a fourth grade teacher at Whitehouse Primary. I also live in Whitehouse with my husband of 16 years, and our two children. Both of my children are involved in track and cross country, and running with them in Oak Openings is my current favorite thing to do!

I also work part time as clinic aide in an elementary school clinic. I decided to become a personal trainer after years of struggling with weight issues myself. After losing a significant amount of weight a few years ago, I decided to reach out and help others to motivate them to live a more active lifestyle. I enjoy working with the senior age group. I continue to work out, take yoga classes and walk on a regular basis. SilverSneakers FLEX Strength and Balance with Cheryl (Wed @ 10:00a) – a 45 min class using hand weights, elastic bands and small hand held balls all while standing or seated for seniors.

Ginny York

I have been married for 14 years and have 3 boys. Prior to being married and having children exercise was a big part of my life; now that my children are older its getting easier to get back into fitness and exercise. Early morning runs are my favorite way to start the day!

My full time job is at the University of Toledo Medical Center where I work as a Licensed Professional Counselor in the Department of Psychiatry. Exercise is an important tool in improving mood and maintaining good emotional health. Becoming a Spinning® instructor has been a great way to incorporate the mind and body into the fitness experience!

Pam McFaddin

Pam McFaddin

My name is Pam McFaddin. I am new to the area, and I was looking for a new place to teach classes. I drove past Julie's one day and looked up the website. I emailed Julie, and here I am! My boyfriend, Bill, and I built a house and moved to Swanton in December 2018 from Michigan. I have a 13 year old son, Jameson, that plays Lacrosse, wrestles, and has a passion for fire alarms and safety. Of course, like many 13 year olds, he loves gaming on his devices. I have been teaching Group Fitness for 22 years. It all started in 1997 with Step Aerobics at a Dayton/Cincinnati regional club called Moore’s Fitness, and it evolved from there. That club was bought out by Fitworks, and Ohio based company, in 2002. After 13 years with that club, I moved to Saline, Michigan and started teaching Zumba at Powerhouse Gym in 2011. In the 7 years that I lived in Michigan, I also worked as a Group Fitness Director for a club in Ann Arbor, Michigan and taught classes a club called Arbor Fit. Some of the most rewarding part of my teaching career is the time that I led classes at the Saline Area Senior Center. In my 22 years in Fitness I have taught Step Aerobics, Slide, Butts & Guts, Cardio Kickboxing, Group Power, Yoga/Pilates, Zumba, Spin and Bootcamp. At the Saline Area Senior Center I lead a program called Wisdom and Wellness. What an experience to see that age group improve in their fitness levels! It proves that we can improve our bodies at ANY age! Most of my teaching career I have also worked fulltime. I am currently working as an Accounting Specialist, but I recently worked in Purchasing and Customer Service/Sales. I am so happy to have found Julie's Fitness Studio to do something I call .. my hobby that I get paid for. I hope to see you soon in class!!!

Mary Corkins

Mallory Lee Corkins

After getting engaged in 2015 I knew I needed to make some major health changes so that I would look amazing for my big day. So, I set out to get fit at my local fitness club. Little did I know I would stumble across my soulmate workout, Turbo Kick! I also discovered I had a passion to share this amazing workout with everyone so I set out to become an instructor to do just that.

I completed my Turbo Kick Instructor training November 2017 and can’t wait to get the party started with YOU!! Although Turbo is a high-intensity cardio workout, I’ll be sure to show modifications over time so that if jumping around isn’t your thing you can still get a killer workout. I know you’ll see amazing results (I’ve personally lost over 30 pounds)!! So if you are looking to let loose, have fun, feel strong and get your sweat on, this is the class for you!

Rene Mason

Rene Mason

I, like so many others, got into fitness to feel better about myself, and maybe lose a few pounds. My journey started in 1997. I found out that I loved the way fitness made me feel. I took Kickboxing, spin, and boot camp classes. I loved them all. So much so, that I became an Instructor to teach those classes. I then became a Personal Trainer in 2005, and I found my NEW LOVE. I totally enjoy helping others, and watching them transform themselves. It's a Wonderful Journey, and I love being part of that. At the age of 58, I competed at my first Figure Competition. I trained and put on a two-piece swim suit for the first time in about 30 yrs. I believe age is just a number. You can be as young as you feel. Don't let your age define who you are. If you need that extra help to get you past that Plateau, or just want to have more energy and feel better, give me a call and we can do this together.

Kayla Bohman

It was weeks before my son Christian’s 1st birthday, and I desperately needed to be planning his party, but instead I found myself standing looking in the mirror and thinking “If I could just lose this extra weight.” This wasn’t the first time I had done this, it was something I had done hundreds of times. What was different now was that I was thinking about my son, and the fact that he was soon going to be running all over and I was going to want to keep up with him, not watch him from the couch. I decided right then and there that more than anything else, I wanted to be a healthy mom for him, one he could look up to, and I knew at that moment I wasn’t that person.

Although I had started spinning at Julie’s a month or so before my revelation, and that was a great workout for me, I knew that for me, it just wasn’t enough. As soon as I began spinning I would hear people talk about how great Julie was, and how great the gym itself was. One Saturday I decided to take a deep breath and talk to Julie about my situation. In thinking back, I could not have possibly realized how much that split-second decision, and the phone call that followed, would change my life. I was able to open up to Julie; she listened and understood what I was going through. I felt so comfortably with her from the very beginning, and I knew she would be able to help me.

Shortly after, I started training with Julie once a week, and attending multiple classes at the gym. Not only is Julie great, but the other trainers and members are as well. Unlike other gyms, Julie’s is like a family. From the moment you walk in, everyone makes you feel welcomed, supported and cared about. That support is honestly a huge part of the reason I am able to write this. Not only did I have Julie, but I had Tracy and Lisa helping me every step of the way, along with all of the other gym members, who have been cheering me on and celebrating every ounce/pound of my weight loss, and applauding me every time I am able to do just one more push up. From that split second decision, which was a little over 6 months ago, through today, I have lost close to 30lbs and 30 inches of fat. For me, Julie’s Fitness Studio was that missing link, and that one phone call has changed my life. I no longer stand around wishing I could lose that extra weight, and making excuses to myself on why it hasn’t happened. When my son turns 2 in February, I can truly give him the gift of being a healthy mom, and one that loves to run around with him!

Update on Tim and Angie Pyle

Through a trainers eyes..... It's been almost 2 years since I started training with this amazing couple and through their ups and downs they have continued to persevere. To date Angie has lost 96.4 lbs and Tim has lost 51 lbs! I cannot tell you how proud I am of both of their accomplishments! They continue to exercise, eat healthy, and drink their water. Neither one of them will tell you it's easy. It's not, but they support each other the whole way. Tim is a runner and just had foot surgery and has been unable to exercise and staying on track with the food is difficult for both of them. But......they NEVER give up because giving up is NOT an option. Kudos to these two for working through all the challenges that life throws at them, you guys are the best and I wish you continued success! Julie
