Christy has been happily married for 19 years and is a mother of two. Playing sports in high school she never really focused on health, fitness, or exercise as a tool for staying that way. After graduation, years of being a party girl, and then having two children she realized something had to change. Finding that doing what she had always done during her years training for sports wasn’t working she tried group fitness at a local Zumba class and fell in love with it learning to lose 60+ lbs along the way. In June of 2020 she will have been an instructor for 9 years and is now licensed to teach several other group fitness formats such as Aqua Zumba, Zumba Toning, STRONG by Zumba (a HIIT class), Insanity Live, Piyo Live, Transform Live and most recently a new program called SH1FT. Christy is also a certified Group Instructor through the American Council of Exercise (ACE), holds her Personal Training certification through A.C.E. and is a PN1 Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutirion as well. She has a passion for helping others find their way to a healthier way of life while reminding them to love themselves along the way.
Renee “Mean Gene” BrownRecovery mtg Trainer
I love Preschool, Powerlifting, and Pro Wrestling. I have taught preschool for 16 years and have been around a gym and lifting atmosphere for 20 years. I am currently working towards my goals in equipped single-ply powerlifting.
I found a home and a family here at BTB. As well as volunteering and training, I also participate in the recovery meetings as I struggle with Major Depression, Anxiety, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Although this is a life long battle I have found that the structure that I get from a solid training schedule, working towards goals, and having this family at BTB to support and encourage me has not only helped me to function from day to day but to really thrive in a way I thought I never could. I am a completely different person thanks to the patience, wisdom, caring, and love that has been given to me by my brothers and sisters here.
It is my hope for each person who comes through the doors of BTB to not only reach your training goals but more importantly to know that you are family and you have a place where you belong and are valued and loved.
