ELENA RICHARDSON

Elena is a Idaho State University Graduate with 2 Bachelors degrees in Health Education. She began her career as an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Stott Pilates Instructor July 2005. Her passion for training began as a group fitness instructor, just before she graduated. During this time, a lady in one of her classes approached her, mentioning how a trainer had told the lady that she would never make progress in losing weight. It was this instance that made Elena realize that there needed to be more caring health professionals. She has loved every minute of making a difference in individuals’ health goals, whether it be to reduce back pain or to unleash that coveted six pack. Elena takes great pride in customizing programs from all different formats of exercise and nutrition to sculpt beautiful bodies.   Come let her sculpt you! Come get a Body by Elena.

BRIAN VALIGURA

Brian Valigura is a Certified Personal Trainer who also holds a degree in Exercise Sport Science, Health, and Sociology from Texas Tech University.  He has been in the fitness industry since he was eighteen years of age.  Whether he is working with beginners or people in the advanced stages of fitness, his goal is to help people achieve their goals in the fastest and safest way possible.  Take a look at what some of his clients have to say.

“Not only have I lost 30 pounds using Brian, but he has given me a whole new appreciation for working out and living a healthy lifestyle.” – Beau Tucker (current client)

“I came to Brian with numerous health issues.  While training with Brian for almost two years, he has shown me how to improve my level of fitness in a healthy and safe way, and just get overall healthier which is something I obviously needed.  Just recently I injured my shoulder, and Brian adjusted our workouts in a way that I was still able to improve my strength, but also rehabilitate my injured shoulder.”  -Blake Moore (current client).

“I love training with Brian.  He pushes more than I think than I can go, but never so much to the point where I feel like I am going to pass out!”  -Kagan Massey, 2014 Miss Turquoise Circuit Winner (current client).

If you have any questions or concerns for Brian, or would like to schedule a FREE consultation, you can reach him at .

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angles nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39

COURTNEY DEROUEN

Courtney is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer who has extensive experience and knowledge in fat loss, muscle gain, and cardiovascular health. Her foundation for fitness began in high school starting her freshman year as a Varsity track athlete training in cross-country and the 3200m. Between track seasons during her junior and senior years, she trained in power lifting, placing at regional and participating at state meets. In college, she pursued her minor in dance for two years and then studied courses in Anatomy and Physiology at Texas Tech as part of a completed minor in Biology plus a minor in English. She has extensive knowledge in sports supplementation, vitamins, and food nutrition and will soon be credentialed as a Fitness Nutrition Specialist and Weight Loss Specialist through NASM.

In the spring of 2013, she competed in her first NPC competition at the Ronnie Coleman Classic, where she placed in the top 10 in her class and will be competing again later this year. She understands what it means to be dedicated to a nutrition and workout plan in order to achieve results.

She also understands the value of a supportive trainer who is there with their clients every step of the way. “I love my job, I love what I do! The human body is an amazing machine. Most people aren’t fully aware of what they are capable, and I’m here to help them realize what their potential whether they’re new to exercise or have an athletic background. I know what it means to be an athlete and to push hard day after day to perform at peak levels. I also know what it means to be a mother and lose baby weight and deal with meal planning (I have two boys). But when you realize you have only one body and one life, you realize the how important it is to take care of yourself and achieve your goals. I’m here to help my clients set those goals and take the necessary steps to reach them.”
