My name is David Woodward and I have 3 healthy kids that God has blessed me with. I believe in living a healthy lifestyle and trying my best to set an example for my kids to follow when they grow up, like going to Church for the spiritual and mental aspect and lifting weights and eating healthy for the physical aspect.
I am also a certified massage therapist and believe that with massage you can naturally reduce stress in your life and also help many other problems. I have been lifting weights since 1995 and hope to use my knowledge and experience to help train others to lead a healthy lifestyle. I can't promise that it will be easy as I help you reach your fitness goal, but I can promise that once your goal is reached, it will all be worth it...
Libby was born and raised in Abingdon, and has been employed as a fitness professional at the Recreation Center since it opened approximately 17 years ago. In addition to personal training, she currently teaches a variety of fitness classes, including cycling, weight lifting, step, Pilates, and circuit training. Her years of experience and teaching diversity enable her to serve a wide variety of personal training clients. Her clients have ranged in age from 9 years old to 70 years old, and she has worked with a team of young motocross riders, developing sports specific workouts to improve their performance.
“My primary focus has always been to teach others how to exercise correctly - proper form, awareness of body position, making sure you make the most of your workout by really thinking about what you’re doing, understanding the muscle you’re working and how it’s behaving with each movement. I enjoy working with a variety of exercise tools - free weights, weight machines, exercise tubing, fit balls, the BOSU, weighted balls - to help my clients challenge their muscles and really see results in their training. I want to educate and inspire others to live the healthiest, most productive lifestyle possible.”
Jacqui Pile has enjoyed working as a Personal Trainer for nearly eleven years, helping clients to incorporate wellness into their exercise programs, focusing on lasting lifestyle change.
