SANDOR KOPPANYI: PFP Trainer
ACE Certified/ PEAK Pilates Level 1 Certified, B.S. Exercise Science
When people ask me where I'm from, it's always a long answer. I moved seven times before the end of high school, have lived in Europe for 13 years, and have an American/Hungarian background. I grew up playing soccer and became especially interested in fitness in middle school when I couldn't do a pull-up in front of my gym class. It really frustrated me that I couldn't do one so I set my sights on being able to crank out at least 3 by the end of 8th grade. With a lot of trial and error and hard work, I was able to get 6 pull-ups by the end of that year.
I believe my life until now has had a huge impact on my views of fitness. I've seen and heard different perspectives from around the world and keep a very open mind when it comes to fitness. I enjoy doing Pilates, yoga, kettlebell training, calisthenics, resistance training, and even strongman training to name a few. Due to my interests, I believe I can provide some of the most unique workouts you'll have with a trainer. I'm a firm believer in helping my clients master the fundamental exercises before progressing to more advanced variations.
Helping people become healthier, fitter versions of themselves and being a part of their journey to unlocking their potential is a passion of mine. Before you begin a fitness regimen with me, ask yourself this question: "Did the Egyptians build their pyramids from the top piece first?"
WES HALL: PFP Trainer
M.S. Exercise Science, NASM PES
After bouncing around various unenjoyable jobs post-undergrad, I decided to make a career change and commit to making one of my passions and favorite hobbies my life. I went back to school and got a master's in exercise science. I haven't looked back since and have been training now for over 6 years.
I'm not here to just tell you what exercises to do as a personal trainer. As a personal trainer, it is my responsibility to coach and educate my clients as well. I'm here to tell you why I'm giving you a specific exercise, educate you on how to perform it correctly and how it will help you reach your specific goals.
I'm big on continuing education and am constantly learning new tools and refining my coaching techniques to help us reach your goals. In other words, I'm kind of a nerd when it comes to fitness.
My goal for you is to help you become the best version of yourself, achieve the results you want, no matter where you are in your fitness journey and to have a little fun along the way.
