Hello Everyone! My name is Meg Fletcher and I am a proud mother and “GiGi”. By day I am a Regional Manager for Tanner Medical Group and by night and on the weekends I am a group fitness instructor doing what I am most passionate about, focusing in dance, aerobics and basic core. I have always had a strong passion for dance and I have taken many years of dance lessons. I earned a spot in a Dance Company when I was young in Marietta called The Dancer’s Workshop where I competed in Tap, Ballet, Jazz and Hip Hop. I joined the Dance Team at McEachern High School and choregraphed several of our routines. I put dance on hold with the birth of my son and chose a career in the Medical Field. Later in life I knew I had to find a way to get back into dance and I became a Certified Zumba Instructor. I have taught group fitness classes for The City of Villa Rica, Tanner Health Source, and I’m so happy to be a part of the Club Fitness family where I teach dance fitness. The classes I teach are called Club Jam, it is not your average dance class. We have a lot of fun and incorporate fitness into dance routines. I also have many guests that come in and join us. We have so much fun. I hope you give my classes a try!
A Bit About Me...Gerry L. Cofield
Yoga provided a path for me that has improved my physical, mental, and emotional well-being tremendously and I have practiced regularly since 2012. My desire to share this experience prompted me to complete a 200 hour yoga psychology teacher training program in June 2016 with Evolutionary Education. The training is approved by Yoga Alliance and was led by Dr. Nick Atlas. Nick is a RYT500 who has studied yoga since 1998 in the U. S. and abroad under many well-recognized masters, as well as having taught at Omega and Kripalu and other venues. I am a member of Yoga Alliance and a RYT200 (registered yoga teacher). I am also a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapist (IAYT), having completed over 120 hours of yoga therapy training, including anatomy and physiology. I have taught classes in yoga centers, gyms, health care programs, an integrative pharmacy, senior centers, a university recreation center, private venues, and with private clients. My goal is to support your growth and help you reach the goals that will help you to live more fully.
My love for yoga began in 2012 when my friend and fellow educator July Nicholson finally got me to attend a class at Place of Power , a former yoga studio in Carrollton . I was a young thirtysomething-year-old waking up daily with an aching back. After only a month of practicing yoga twice a week, my body felt better then it had since I was a kid! At Place of Power I studied yoga under owner, Donna Robinson, and July, Lori and Jill. These women provided for me a superb foundation for yoga practice and I begin to teach at this studio in 2013.
I furthered my yoga training by beginning a course of study at the Asheville yoga center in Asheville North Carolina in the summer of 2014. I have plans to continue classes at the Asheville Yoga Center this winter.
Yoga has improved my both physical and mental health. I love to practice with beginners, as well as veteran yogis! I have been teaching at Club Fitness for three years now and love working with the staff and gym members there!
I graduated from West Georgia in 2005 and went home to Chattanooga to sell memberships at a health club called The Sports Barn, which instilled my love for fitness. After having 2 children, I further developed my passion for fitness by training for a half marathon in which I finished 3rd in my age group. I am certified as a Personal Trainer through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America and have a certification in Sports Nutrition. I’ve been an instructor and trainer at Club Fitness since 2015. Being a part of someone’s fitness journey is a special and rewarding experience. My clients have been diverse, some with different physical limitations, and we’ve made strides in their overall health together through hard work and dedication. Whether it’s to just feel better, train for an event, or reach a sustainable healthy lifestyle, I want to help get you on the right track.
Hey! I’m Lindsay Niedbalski and would love to get you started on your fitness journey. I graduated from University of Iowa in 2015 with a Health & Human Physiology emphasis in Exercise Science degree. I started personal training at a boutique gym and athletic performance back in St. Louis, MO. I enjoy training all types from weight loss, to newbies, to athletes, to general fitness, to just someone to tell them what to do
Melody began yoga in 2009 in the midst of severe health issues. The practices enabled her to develop strength in a profound way. She took yoga teacher training in 2012 at Tallapoosa wellness Center with Karen Sifton and Roger Hornsby And has taught ever sense. She even travelled to Bali and participated in a week long yoga practice that included workshops on deep breathing. Her focus is on foundational form and assisting students in adjusting the pose for best results and to avoid injury.
