Performance Training Team
Isaac HernandezAfter watching the film Rocky, Isaac discovered his passion for fitness. He fell in love with the impression of being the underdog, of having to go out and get what you think you’re worth. From age five up until college, Isaac participated in soccer, football, track, cross country, swimming, and lacrosse. He attended the University of Dubuque where he graduated with a degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Philosophy.
He mixes philosophy and exercise in his training. His philosophy is that everyone can find worth in exercise, and his belief is that everyone should come to see their own potential and feel proud of themselves mentally and physically. By playing different sports, he has seen many different training styles and has been on multiple sides of the fitness spectrum. This gives him a unique insight which leads to compassion—no matter the fitness goal at hand. He is eager to help every underdog find their potential and worth.
Taylor KibbyTaylor graduated from Michigan State University in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Sports Nutrition. She earned her personal training certification through the American College of Sports Medicine and is also certified through the American Red Cross in First Aid and CPR.
Taylor realized how much she enjoyed training and helping others to stay fit when she participated in an internship at Spartan Performance, where she trained young athletes in the physical, mental, and nutritional aspects of sport performance.
Taylor has a passion for running and is very self-motivated. She hopes to share this motivation and dedication with those who are looking to make exercise a daily part of their life. The passion she has can be seen in one of her favorite quotes, "Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go."

Here's what one of Edie's clients had to say about training with her:
"Edie is understanding of my need for an non-intimidating environment. She helped me outline my specific goals and is guiding me toward them by listening to my motivational preferences, assessing my physical limitations and striving to make exercise a fun and natural part of my everyday life. My decision to hire a personal trainer has been an empowering one." -Deb S.
