Over 20 years in the Fitness Industry and as a Fitness Instructor teaching a variety of classes such as Step, Kickboxing, and Strength & Toning.
Like many of you I moved to the Fayetteville area because some years ago I married a soldier. I grew up in a large family: can you believe 8 brothers and sisters?!! My father always stressed sports participation. My chosen sports were gymnastics and track and field, which I competed in through out high school. Although these sports improved my flexibility and strength, cardiovascular conditioning was something that I didn’t really pick up on until later. I started taking a boot camp class for women in my local area and was hooked. That really challenged me to work on my endurance and strength and taught me a valuable lesson; we all need to set fitness goals and incorporate variety in order to make progress and break through preconceived thoughts about working out. I’ve taken my fitness goals to another level and started competing in the figure industry and it has taught me a lot about being disciplined and consistent with exercise.
What keeps me driven as a personal trainer is the privilege of sharing and helping my clients reach all of their fitness goals.
Specializes in sports conditioning agility drills, circuit & interval training, plyometrics, and time efficient fat burning workouts.
To grow as much as possible physically, mentally and spiritually. Along the way I would like to inspire and also learn from those that I come into contact.

Alexis Deck – Fitness Coach
- AFAA Personal Trainer
- Mad Dogg Athletics certified Spin® Instructor
- American Red Cross CPR/AED certified
I have 5 years of fitness experience, 4 years of Spin® training, and 3 years of personal training. While attending Florida State University, I took advantage of the personal training service and fell in love with the gym! It was my escape from the books and lab work. With cleaner nutrition, I saw myself transform for the better, both physically and psychologically. Then after graduation, I earned both my Spin® certification and personal training certification and quickly started working with the YMCA. I have been able to work with a wide range of ages, physical abilities, and client goals. Seeing the pride my clients find in themselves from their dedication and change is the most rewarding feeling.
I focus on weight and interval training for muscle building and fat loss in addition to building routines to fit the client’s needs and daily schedule. We all live busy lives that are demanding of our time so time management is imperative. I’m dedicated to structuring a client’s workout and nutrition to reasonably compliment their work and home life. I want to ensure your hard work will not end after you leave the studio.
Your actions today affect the outcomes of tomorrow.
Ellen “Elle” Williams – Fitness Coach
- NASM Certified Personal Trainer
- Physical Health/Education Major FSU
- American Red Cross CPR Certified
Over 10 years in the Fitness Industry and 2 plus years as a Personal Trainer.
I have been a Fayetteville resident of 2 years brought here via the military and loves the southern hospitality and warm weather. I have studied various forms of health and fitness over the past decade ranging from Nursing, Pharmaceuticals (certified technician), Sports Nutrition, Strength Training, Personal Training, and Anatomy & Physiology. I have a continued interest in the fitness industry that is fueled by the desire to help others find their personal “body blueprint” for success in achieving their fitness goals. Everybody is unique and has different lifestyle variables that come into play. I take pride in my ability to custom tailor a program and ultimately a healthy lifestyle change that works for YOU, the individual. My philosophy is that “Fitness can be fun and rewarding in every part of the process when the correct planning is in place.”
Strength & Conditioning Training, Speed Agility Quickness Training, Cardio Endurance, Weight Loss.
My heart aches when I see others struggling with food choices, body confidence, gym phobias, or plain inaccurate information as how to make long lasting, positive change. There’s a plethora of misinformation out there and so many promises of “quick fixes” however, the tried and true science of nutrient intake and physical activity still stands as the ONLY formula for success. I strive to help you leave our time together with you loving you.
