Meet the Team
I opened this training facility to help motivate people who have never exercised, have a difficult time exercising alone, or need motivation to reach their ultimate goals. I will coach, inspire and guide you in the right direction. Rest assured, you will never be bored and you’re going to have fun.
My attitude always reflects a willingness to go above and beyond what my clients’ expectations are. My clients will tell you that they have never done the same routine twice. They will also attest to the fact that their bodies are transformed after I work with them a few months. They trust me because I always deliver what I promise. I promise to challenge you and keep your muscles guessing. If you do your part, I also promise that your body will be transformed, you will have more energy and will be a more serene person. Whether you want to lose weight, tone up, increase your speed and agility or just want to develop self esteem inside and out, let me help you get there.
I am certified in the OhioHealth Delay the Disease program, which improves the physical, mental and emotional realities of Parkinson’s patients. I offer one on one training and group fitness classes, specifically geared toward the needs of people living with Parkinson’s Disease.
I am so grateful to love what I do, and I hope you give me a chance to help you change your life!
I am a 200 RYT and have been teaching yoga since 2015 around the Columbus area. I have found a love and passion for yoga that I never knew existed. Yoga has taught me not only the power that our physical body possess but also the immense amount of power that the mind holds. Throughout my style of teaching I promote and teach you how to harness the power of your mind in order to create change not only in your physical body but in your everyday life! My love as a certified personal trainer has helped me to see the benefits and complements of the two combined. Let me help you to gain a perspective that spans far outside of the yoga studio and the gym.
She has taught ballet fitness and Pilates and currently teaches several forms of yoga and barre. Beth’s passion for fitness, health and teaching comes out of her struggles recovering from a motorcycle accident requiring surgeries and physical therapy. Beth hopes you will share your story and your challenges so she can help and encourage you on your journey.
Outside of yoga, I enjoy Cross Fit, cooking, gardening, reading, traveling and hanging out with our two boys and their pet bunnies, Rhett and Phoebe.
As a lifelong and collegiate athlete, physical fitness, goal-setting and wellness have always been ingrained in her being. When she’s not helping her clients create and crush new health goals or singing Disney tunes with her baby girl, she can be found at Pickerington North High School coaching an accomplished High School Cheerleading team.
Her greatest passion is bringing joy, inspiration and positivity into the lives of those around her. She enjoys nothing more than seeing people discover the willingness to show up and make a change. She believes in the idea that sometimes, the bravest and most important thing you can do during anything in life, is just show up!
A graduate of Ohio Dominican University, Jennah has a Bachelor’s degree in Communications, with Minors in Public Relations and Marketing. She also holds a certification in Functional Medicine Nutrition.
Outside the gym, Sondra is married to Scott with two boys, Jack 19 and Danny 16. She has a bachelors degree in MIS from UMass and works as a Sr Business Analyst. She loves to travel, scuba dive.
Adam Lawson, born and raised in Columbus, received his 200HR teaching certification from Give Yoga. He discovered yoga in 2015 and began to practice in his bedroom. The transformational power of yoga started to work its effects on Adam, moving his practice further and further away from his bedroom. Adam believes your power is in what you let go continuing his path of letting go of his comfortability zone. With this belief he allows for strength and ease to move him and his students through practice bringing awareness to what we have the power to do and what we are forcing ourselves to do. Class with Adam likes to flow playfully and powerfully. His hopes are to spread the transformational power of yoga to sustain peace and love.
Other than yoga Adam enjoys spending time with his children. You can find him through the trails at the Scioto Audobon or any of the central Ohio Metro Parks. He has many passions that include sketching, music, cooking and all things outdoors. In his younger years Adam played soccer and baseball.
Great yoga class with Kristina. She worked on everything we needed. Her instructions are excellent, too!
I lost 30 pounds in six months. I’m in my 60s and have had 4 hip replacements! I’m living proof that it’s never too late to start no matter what your obstacle may be.
I lost 82 pounds. I have reached a goal I never thought was possible. I’m in my 50s and in better shape now than I was in my 30s!
I competed in my first Figure Competition in 2011 and won third place! I never even lifted weights in my life until six months before the competition.
I love and hate the class at the same time. Hate while I’m doing it, love after I’m done. Thank you!
Love yoga!! Your classes are challenging and rewarding. Love the meditation!
Love this class!! It pushes me to push myself and I leave feeling amazing and refreshed… and strong! 🙂 I love the personal element and I love that it’s more than just an instructor and class. The 6:15pm Tuesday class is perfect for someone working a typical 8-3/9-5 kind of job. Thank you!
Always challenging and different every time. Such an amazing workout! Love my trainers here!!
Tremendously knowledgeable instructor! Michelle can modify anything! If you’ve been sitting at a desk for 25 years, this is for you. Friendly gym, no attitude. Highly recommended.
Michelle is terrific! So much good energy, vibes and patience! I had a recent hip replacement and she knew exactly what I needed and could handle. Thank you.
No matter what is going on in my life, this one hour of yoga is one of the highlights of my day. It is the one hour that I can work on ME – which is the best project I can ever work on. The yoga classes and instructors here genuinely care about their clients. They are enthusiastic, motivating and keep me coming back for more!
Thank you for providing a welcoming space! I have belonged to many “gyms” but have never felt as comfortable as when I walk into Advanced Training each Wednesday. I appreciate the physical, mental and spiritual growth I receive each week!
Just a note to say thank you for your outstanding hot yoga instruction. I had been wanting to try yoga for awhile and with encouragement from 2 of your clients (Cyndi T & Jill T.) – it happened! 🙂 As an avid cyclist I needed to increase my flexibility, but never imagined the deep breathing would also reduce my stress zone! The stretching poses have also reduced core weight, which is fabulous! Thanks again for your positive instruction for my “me time!” I’m hooked 🙂
