Michael Mitchell

"After only one year of consistent training, a 65-year-old client of mine has dropped from 211 pounds to 157 pounds and her body fat from 50% to 35%! Since our journey her physician has taken her off her medications for high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Her life is more rewarding since she started an exercise routine and practicing healthy eating habits. We plan for her to reach her goal weight of 145 pounds later this year!"

Michael has been in the fitness industry for over 14 years. He attended the University of Southern Mississippi where he received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science.

For the last 3 years he has been employed by the Wellness Center as a personal trainer, working with a broad clientele and using a multidisciplinary approach to fitness and wellness.

Donna Roubal

"I had a client on a 6-week time frame for losing weight. I helped him to take off 7% body fat and 12 pounds on the scale. He felt more empowered and was able to overcome several physical limitations, all the time increasing muscle mass. He moved away shortly thereafter, but just knowing I made such an impact on someone in only 6 weeks of his life was very empowering for me as well."

Donna has had an extraordinary 15-year career in the fitness industry as a personal trainer/fitness instructor and has enjoyed all avenues of fitness from triathlon training to competing in fitness competitions. She is a certified aerobics fitness instructor specializing in dance aerobics, step, kickboxing, spinning, yoga, pilates, body pump, resistance training, core stability training, arthritis exercise (land/aquatics), interval training (land/aquatics), as well as water aerobics. She has worked with a broad range of special needs populations and has excelled with the Wellness Center since January 2000. She enjoys helping people achieve their true potential in health and wellness at any age.

Courtney St. Germain

"I have worked with a wide range of clients during the years I have been a personal trainer. I have helped my clients through various conditions, including breast cancer recovery, osteoporosis and post rehabilitation for orthopedic injuries. The ability to find a workout that is successful for people with limitations, whether permanent or temporary, is an important part of my training."
