Owner – Studio B.O.S.S. Owner – NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Women’s Fitness Specialist, Group Personal Training Specialist

Growing up in Alabama I was in love with southern food. Both of my grandmothers were amazing cooks and we ate with them all the time. I was never particularly heavy but after getting married and having my first child my exercise became sporadic at best. Gaining 41 lbs with each of my three pregnancies I was roughly 20 lbs overweight. I loved saving money and became an avid coupon clipper. Coupons, however, are rarely for truly healthy food. By this time in my life I had taken control of my fitness and was dedicated to working out 6 days a week. I had lost the excess weight but I had not really changed my nutrition. However I realized that in order to change my HEALTH I needed to take charge of my nutrition. Doing this can be a very overwhelming task. Thankfully I realized not to take all or nothing but to make small changes which add up over time. I am still learning daily, not just in my fitness, but in my nutrition as well. I do not believe in a magic pill. I do not believe that you need to kill yourself working out an hour or more a day 6 or 7 days a week. I fully believe in approaching the body from the standpoint of achieving your optimal health. I enjoy working with any and all ages and showing how to regress or progress an exercise based on your fitness level. Jumping is 100% optional in all of my classes.
I look forward to teaching you how your body CAN move and how much stronger you can be, to watching you change and grow. I am still on my journey and I am so excited to be a part of yours. Let’s learn how to eat, move and be healthy together.

Lydia Beatty – Certified Yoga Instructor

I grew up in a typical southern family, where everything was fried and the tea was sweet. I was the walking poster child for adult obesity. At 37 years old, I tipped the scales to weigh in at 239 lbs. I knew that I was heavy, but when I would try and walk with a friend, I could not walk even 1/4 of a mile without getting excruciating shin splints. I went to a yoga class a couple of times which is one of the few things I could do without hurting myself. I knew I had to do something...so my journey began almost 12 years ago. I started a weight loss plan and slowly began exercising. By the end of that first year, I removed almost 100 lbs and was able to walk, run, and lift weights. It was discovering that my body could do things, I never thought possible. I had loved those few yoga classes that I had gone to and decided that I would try "hot yoga". My first class, I thought I was going to throw up due to heat and pure exhaustion...I was in love. Within 3 months, I began a certified teacher training program. I taught hot yoga 3 days a week for 5 years and loved watching people grow mentally and shrink physically. . If I was able to say one thing to encourage you, I would say...you CAN do it. The beautiful thing about yoga, is that it can be for anyone, regardless of age, size, and fitness level. Every pose can be modified or skipped. If you just wanted to lay on your mat the entire class, you have the absolute freedom to do so. I am also in progress of becoming a Certified Christian Life Coach. My desire is to coach women during difficult life transitions, and to share the truth from Jeremiah 29:11, that God wants to give us hope and a future. I am also a believer of Isaiah 61:3, that God gives beauty instead of ashes, joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair...

Kevin Tobias – Tabata Bootcamp Trainer, Precision Nutrition PN1 in progress

As a kid I played little league and Babe Ruth baseball, and even played two years on the high school baseball team, but I haven’t always been athletic. Eventually, musical talent drew me into band as a member of the percussion team. My love for music eventually shifted my focus to playing in rock bands during my high school years and later on in life I was blessed to be able to make music my profession. At age forty, after spending four years on the road with a band eating less than healthy food, I was getting very little exercise. Tired from irregular sleep patterns, I was fifteen pounds overweight and my cholesterol was pushing three-hundred. I bought a second hand bike and began to ride three or four times a week. After three years of biking my health improved and my cholesterol fell into a normal range without medication. My current routine is balanced- resistance training, cardio along with stretching while maintaining a healthy diet. Feeling better than I did twenty years ago, I continue to exercise four to five times a week. When my nutrition is not on point my cholesterol levels rise and I feel terrible as well. Considering the role of diet in relation to overall health, my passion is a simple approach to exercise with emphasis on good, sound nutrition. The more complicated a plan is, the less likely you are to follow it. As a Tabata Certified trainer, I am seeking Precision Nutrition Certification. Upon completion, I will begin studies to be a certified personal trainer and I look forward to learning more and continuing to help people move better, feel better, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Kim Bell – Certified PiYo Instructor, NASM CPT in progress

I’ve always had ties to diet and exercise…but not always the right ones. My nutrition was not where it needed to be. When I had kids, exercise took a backseat to work and being a mom- both very demanding. By age thirty-nine I was 208 lbs. (at 5’3”), and hypertensive. The extra weight slowed me down, but high blood pressure was the catalyst for me to take charge of my fitness. I gave up sugar, most processed foods and began to exercise regularly. In under a year I dropped 85 lbs. and was taken off blood pressure medicine. I like to mix it up with my exercise, so when I tried PiYo I fell in love with it. It’s flexibility, strength, balance and core with a bit of cardio wrapped up in a tidy package. PiYo combines practices of Pilates and Yoga in flow movement. I feel strong and accomplished after a class. Now my passion lies with helping others realize their fitness goals and guiding them to the healthiest version of themselves that they can be. Out of that passion came a desire to become certified as a group fitness instructor. Along with my instructor certification, I am currently pursuing my personal trainer certification through NASM

Tina LaScola – Certified Zumba Instructor

I am a California native with a passion for music and dancing. I have been a licensed Zumba instructor since 2008. I am licensed in Zumba Basic 1 and 2, as well as Zumba Toning, and Zumba Gold. My motto is "Life is too short! Have fun!" So if you like to have fun while getting a good workout, come join me!

April Wilson – Vinyasa Yoga Flow

How long have I been enjoying yoga? Oh, since about 2009! I loved it so much, that in 2011 when offered a chance to study it more, I went for it, earning my certificate from Goodlettsville’s Mindful MotionYoga Center. I not only enjoy yoga, but like to run, workout and strive for a healthy body, mind, and spirit. Yoga provides the opportunity for you to listen to your body, and respond in a healthy and loving way, and so that’s what keeps me practicing and teaching.

Debbie Martin – Real Food Made Simple and Certified Tabata Bootcamp Trainer

I spent my life making unhealthy choices. After years of eating the wrong foods and masking symptoms of disease with pharmaceuticals, at 35, my health was spiraling downward quickly. After being diagnosed with obesity, a fatty liver, pre-diabetes, and thyroid disease, I knew a life change was necessary. I made baby steps with looking at ingredients, and making some better choices, but it wasn't until I did a 75 day juice cleanse that my health began to drastically change. The juice fast initiated my lifestyle of a REAL FOOD diet. On this journey I've realized that I didn't have to do away with foods that I enjoyed, they just required a little tweaking. As a result of choosing REAL FOOD, my health, and the health of my family has never been better. This lifestyle has triggered other health improvements. I am now loving the fitness factor of living a healthy life and have become a Certified Tabata Bootcamp Trainer. Once you experience the ease (not to mention the amazing flavor) of throwing together salad dressing, or making your own mayonnaise in 30 seconds, you'll never again want to buy preservative laden foods from the shelf at the grocery store. As a homeschooling mother of five, I need my food to be quick and easy to prepare. I'm sure your life is busy too. I am excited to share how to transition your everyday foods from conventional to REAL FOOD MADE SIMPLE.

DeAnn Mouser – The Simplified Home and Certified Tabata Bootcamp Trainer

I am a wife and mom to four crazy but beautiful kids. My journey to a healthy lifestyle began when I had just two young children at home who suffered with horrible allergies, sensitive skin, and ear infections. I learned (from watching Oprah, of course) that clearing my home of harsh chemicals could have a dramatic impact on our health. At the time, that thought process wasn’t as popular as it is now. I mean everyone was cleaning with the magic blue spray that left a streak free shine, right? I snatched up a new line of “natural” cleaning products and after a short time of using them noticed a major change in my family’s health. That was where my journey into a healthier lifestyle began. Since then I have learned so much about Cleaner, healthier living. Everything from nutrition and fitness to safely using essential oils and even making my own make up. Ten years ago I would have never imagined I would be getting certified in Tabata and also on my way to becoming a certified aromatherapist. The words “HEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHANGE” can seem so overwhelming but I can’t wait to share how to easy and affordable it can be to clean up the everyday products you use in your home along with other ways to be happier and healthier. Small changes here and there really make a big difference.

Jessie Whitfield – Pound Instructor

After I had my beautiful baby girl, I stopped working full time. I became a "stay at home" mom. However, this was challenging for me! Besides my daughter, I'm also passionate about working out and feeling a burn. I told my husband that I found this new workout called POUND® and am desperate to try it. "POUND® IS THE WORLD'S FIRST CARDIO JAM SESSION INSPIRED BY THE INFECTIOUS, ENERGIZING AND SWEAT-DRIPPING FUN OF PLAYING THE DRUMS". With that being said, I quickly became certified to teach and absolutely LOVE it! I can have the best of both worlds, being with my daughter and taking time out to Rock out with this cardio work out. -Peace, Love and Ripsticks Jessie

Bridget Fairfield, TN Licensed Massage Therapist –

I graduated from Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy in February 2007. I took my NCBMBT certification exam following graduation and opened my first massage practice at a fitness center in Charleston, SC. After the birth of our second child and a move across country, I took 9 months off from my massage career. I received my certification for California in January 2009 and began working at a health spa that allowed me to offer neuromuscular therapy to my clients as well as deep tissue, swedish, aromatherapy, prenatal and even body treatments. Since the spa was located only 4 miles from the Navy Seal training base, I had the amazing opportunity to work with many of them and that is when my passion for sports massage began. While in NC I had the privilege of working with a sports massage team and traveled to several sporting events, including the Marine Corps Marathon. This is where I began my training in IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) and became certified in Functional Movement Taping through Rock Tape. After my husbands retirement, we settled in Tennessee, making White House our home. I am excited that I am finally ready to get back to what I love.....providing results oriented muscular therapy to my clients!
