Reed discovered the benefits of overall fitness and strength training when he first joined a gym in his mid twenties. He quickly realized that movement was medicine not only to the physical body, but to the mind and spirit as well. It became a passion. After many years of consistent workouts Reed developed an inner desire to teach, motivate, and inspire others to start a healthy lifestyle! Reed began his career as a trainer in Nashville, Tennessee. With over twenty years of professional experience he has coached everyone from beginners to competing athletes. Reed believes in making everyone feel comfortable in the gym and that fitness should be safe and fun! Along with helping individuals develop a strength training and weight loss program he has also had the pleasure of working with many clients who have special needs such as Parkinson's disease, recovery from organ transplants and joint replacements, and even training a client who is completely blind. Reed believes that it is never too late to start, but do it before you can't.
Marlanea began her health/fitness journey after having her third child. It was after attending a local Zumba class that she became passionate about attending all of the classes she could. She was inspired by her favorite instructor to become a Zumba instructor herself. After teaching classes in Defuniak for eleven years it eventually led her to the opportunity of becoming the manager of MSFCO, Defunaik's favorite gym! Marlanea's passion for helping others led her to become a NASM certified personal trainer in 2021! She can attest to the power of overall health and fitness, as it has changed her life for the better. She would love to share her passion with you as you begin or continue on your journey!

As a high school and college athlete, physical training has always been a part of my life. After competitive sports it was a natural progression into strength training. I have always believed in the adage, "strong body, strong mind". As an AAAI certified trainer, I want others to reach their physical goals; to look, to feel and to be the person they visualize themselves to be.
