Emily’s life has always been about fitness. If she wasn’t playing a sport, she was finding a way to stay in shape and, because of that mindset, she found herself jumping into the fitness world and making it her career path. Emily has, at some capacity, been training and coaching over the last 10 years and couldn’t imagine doing anything else! She’s a huge advocate for movement and believes that it is the biggest key to staying happy and healthy. Emily is her clients’ number one fan; from the moment they meet and through every change, big or small. Those changes that she is referring to do not start with the physical ones, but it is the emotional and mental shifts that occur once someone hits his or her milestones. It is the best and most rewarding feeling to be a part of that.
Emily is incredibly passionate about the corrective and preventive exercise realm but can train anywhere from weight loss to recovery. She has experience in Foundation Training, MELT Rolling, Stick Mobility, and RockPod Cupping. Emily loves to be creative with movements and find ways to turn them into exercise. Functional fitness is so important and she believes that with that mindset the goal will always be, “I want to move when I am 100 years old!”

Cory Nix has loved fitness since she was a kid in her living room with her mom doing Jane Fonda workout videos! Her grandma was a tap dance teacher which is where Cory’s love of dance comes from. She also loves swimming and swam competitively in college.
She became a group fitness instructor when she was 16 years old when the Aqua Aerobics instructor didn’t show. She had to step in and fill her shoes to make sure the patrons got a workout. From that moment on, Cory knew she loved to teach and lead group fitness.
Over the years, she has taught many different fitness formats but her favorites are clearly Zumba and strength conditioning. Cory also teaches her own version of Dance Fitness called CORYography.
