Hi there everyone! My name is Kenzie, and I am so excited to be joining the CAPFIT fam! 💚🏁

I grew up around fitness and sports, participating in Taekwondo for 4 years, and Softball for 11! A friend of mine got me into weightlifting/strength training in 2020 after COVID. Going to the gym with him and studying the little things is what made me recognize my passion in strength training. I finished my ISSA certification this past November 2022, while working at a previous gym!

I am currently a full-time college senior and have a part time internship as well. I am super family oriented and for fun, I am obsessed with line dancing, country music concerts, and traveling the states!

What I love regarding training is hearing your WHY. We all rely on and love fitness for a specific reason in our lives, whether it’s to look/ feel confident, ease our mental, or just to have fun! I love how fitness brings everyone together, even when we all have different journeys. I am ecstatic to be meeting each and every single one of you, hyping you up on the floor and THE MIC, and learning from the gifted and talented coaches you all already have!

Hey everyone! My name is Rachel. I just moved to the area from Tennessee. I went to the University of Alabama and got my bachelor’s in nutrition and dietetics. Before I became a fitness professional, I played multiple sports and then started powerlifting in college. After all that I decided to become a coach and have been a group instructor, personal trainer & nutrition coach for a little over a year. I would say my specialty is functional fitness. I love what I do because I get to help people achieve goals, they may not think are possible. So excited to have this opportunity at Capital Fitness!! I can’t wait to work out with you all!
