Vary your workout with a new piece of equipment- the GLUTE DRIVE.

This Nautilus piece is a GLUTE DRIVE and it is a new machine at all four gyms.  Very few gyms in the Midwest offer this equipment. Inspired by the increasing trend of glute exercises seen  gyms today, the Nautilus Glute Drive piece safely and smartly isolates your glutes, building power through a strong hip bridge motion, improving hip and core stability. These benefits important muscles necessary for a wide variety of sports and exercises,The machine is designed to promote good biomechanics and balanced weight curve. A comfortable padded belt secures the user to the back pad which supports the full length of the spine for added safety. Users can load up to four plates of each side, which gives the machine a max weight load of 360 lbs.

ISSA personal training certified

I’m Angie. I’ve been into fitness for a number of years, running a half marathon, losing weight and finding happiness along the way. I finally started chasing my dream of becoming a personal trainer and became ISSA certified in 2017.
I drill in on the “why” to motivate my clients as a tool to reach their goals. The areas I focus on are improving strength, fat loss through weight training, improving cardio fitness and mobility.  Not every workout has to be a heavy sweat session but you can expect to be pushed. You’ll thank me for it later!
