Brian Kretsch: Owner
Brian Kretsch is the owner of TransformYourBody Fitness. I grew up in Minnesota. I am the youngest of seven kids. Family is very important to me and I believe in making my clients feel like family.
I have worked all over the country learning the best ways to lose weight, look great, and get fit. I’m easy to work with and I get you results. Everything is customized to your fitness level, your body, your goals, and your needs.
My goal is to improve my clients quality of life. What does that mean? Quality of life is when someone gets in better shape, not just physically, but also emotionally, and spiritually.
Many people tell me that by getting in better shape they perform better with more energy than ever at their job. Many clients get off of their cholesterol, hypertension, antidepressants, and other harmful medications. Many clients have better personal relationships because they have more self confidence than ever before.
Emma Van Donselaar : Coach
I started playing basketball and soccer when I was 4 years old and have always been surrounded by fitness. For as long as I can remember all of my free time outside of school and work was committed by athletics. I went on to play college basketball and college soccer, finishing my eligibility in 2019. After finishing college sports, I became very inactive and reached my heaviest weight ever. I decided I needed to make a change to improve my quality of life. I took a group exercise instruction class and it reinvigorated my passion for fitness—not to lose weight but to take care of my body and improve my overall quality of life.
My goal: help my clients reach their personal goals through a commitment to a client-centered approach (meaning respecting and helping to build the client’s dignity, autonomy, self-determination, self-efficacy, and self-expertise) while having fun!
I was born into a family who’s always had a love for fitness and I have been learning from as early as the age of five years old. I’ve always used fitness as a way to help me stay not only physically healthy, but mentally healthy as well. Fitness has helped me at an early age from playing sports, to helping me serve in the Marine Corps. Noticing that so many individuals need help reaching their fitness goals has made me both excited and eager to want to be a part of their journey and therefore I have decided to further my knowledge through NASM and become a personal trainer!
Sarah Jernigan: Coach
Hi, my name Sarah, and I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Nutrition Coach through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
I grew up as an overweight child, and during my freshman year of high school, I decided to make a change. I began lifting weights, and eating healthier, and I lost 30 pounds.
Through this journey, I learned how to take care of my body, the importance of exercise, and how to properly fuel my body. My goal is to help you achieve your goals and find joy in the process!
JAYLEN CRUMITY: Coach
Since I was a little boy, I have always been extremely physically active. I began playing sports at the age of 4 and continues to do so through my sophomore year in college.
Fitness is something that just chose me; it has always been my lifestyle. Along the way I have enjoyed helping my family and friends achieve their fitness goals as a byproduct of living a healthy life.
Over the years the gym has probably helped me mentally even more than physically. It has become my safe place and I cannot live without it. I know what fitness has done for me and I want my clients to have those same experiences.
For me, there is no better feeling than seeing someone exceed their goals and gain happiness from it.
NIGEL RUDD: Coach
I’ve been lifting since high school; so, I try to find pleasure in all my workouts even on the bad days. When I got to college and started working out, I saw a lot of beginners lifting with improper form and too much weight.
Not everyone is receptive to advice though; so, the biggest reward I get from being a personal trainer is being a resource that can help people that want to help themselves.
By motivating people to become better versions of themselves in a safe and fun way to show that everyone deserves to be healthy and happy.
