Alexandra Craig


Owner – B.S. Exercise Physiology
Minor in Nutrition
A.C.S.M. Exercise Physiologist

Alexandra believes that exercise is a key piece of the puzzle when it comes to mental, physical, and emotional health. Exercise is a way to release many different stressors we experience on a daily basis. Not only does it help us deal with our health and stress issues, it gives us emotional confidence on the inside and out. Read about her intro into fitness.

My passion is to help people of all walks of life and health experience exercise on a very personal level. I opened Personal Level Fitness for the following reasons:

  1. to help people who have a difficult time exercising accomplish their goals
  2. to teach people how to lose weight and keep it off
  3. to take a current training program to the next level
  4. to teach people how to eat correctly and live a healthy lifestyle

Each client should be treated as an individual and not as a number so that they get the results that work best for their bodies. My intent for our clients is that they get the absolute best one-on-one, personal training in a clean, upbeat, and encouraging environment. Our attitudes should always reflect a willingness to go above and beyond what our clients’ expectations are. We are always here for the client to provide them with outstanding customer service, a shoulder to lean on, and the best results possible!

Dustin Carson


Personal Level Fitness Lead Trainer
National Personal Training Institute – School of Personal Training NPTI
NCSA – Certified Personal Trainer

Dustin believes that personal fitness training is a great tool to help aid the body for a long and healthy life. His intent while training is to show his clientele how much they can achieve when they are pushed past their personal limitations. Dustin’s clients are expected to set attainable goals and keep them in mind during every training session. They need to push themselves during each session to achieve their current goals while continually setting new and challenging ones. “The goal of fitness training is to help clients achieve mental and physical health in all areas of their lives. One key to achieving mental and physical health is the training environment itself. I believe that a fitness trainer should be motivating to the client while at the same time keeping the atmosphere fun, uplifting, and inspiring. I love to see my clients reach their goals and full potential while getting them well on their way to a happier, healthier lifestyle.”

Oh! Baby Fitness – Pre/Post Natal Exercise Specialist

Danielle believes that everyone is capable of more then what they think. Sometimes they just need to be shown and encouraged. She believes in her clients and their abilities to do the things they think are impossible. Danielle says, “Just being their support system boosts their confidence enough to do all sorts of things they never dreamed of doing!” She pushes her clients to prove to themselves that they CAN do anything! They should trust themselves and take that opportunity to learn their potential.

The goal of fitness training is to be practical and realistic. Clients need to notice that it’s the little changes that make the biggest difference. She has seen it happen to many clients and to herself over the years. The training environment should be educational, fun and effective. This is important because clients can learn a lot during each session and make big changes in a short amount of time.

Danielle would like to see her clients gain self-confidence because of the small changes they are making on a daily basis. She also wants them to see more strength, flexibility, tone and endurance!

Brandon believes that fitness training is a path to a healthy and happy life. Fitness allows for the individual to achieve psychological and emotional well-being, which helps them grow in all aspects of life. His intent is to help clients achieve the goals they have set for themselves. For example, losing that extra 5 lbs., completing the extra repetition or whatever it is that they need! Brandon is their lifeline. The client should envision their goals and come in with the positive attitude needed to achieve the goals that they want.

He feels the goal of fitness training in general is to allow the individual to achieve and maintain a healthy life. Training should allow the individual to keep doing the activities that make them happy as long as possible. Brandon likes the environment to be focused, lively, and most of all, enjoyable!

Kenleigh Immel


B.A. Double Major in Athletic Training and Exercise Science
Minor in Nutrition
A.C.S.M. Certified Personal Trainer
NETA Group Exercise Instructor

Kenleigh believes fitness training captures vulnerability in different ways for everyone. For some people, exercise is something that they are self-motivated to do, while for others it is a daily struggle. Regardless of what motivates someone to exercise, the physical gains are just as important as the mental and emotional gains that come from a regular program. Regular fitness training allows people to get to know themselves better each day and overcome personal obstacles related to not exercising. Vulnerability in area’s that once seemed tough start to diminish with each goal achieved. Kenleigh’s intent while training clients is to empower them to be the best that they can be each day. She like’s being a positive influence on their overall health and perspective in lifelong wellness.

The goal of fitness training is to look and feel better. Being confident in your own skin is a tool that can be used to the advantage of anyone! Exercise should become something enjoyable and included in everyday life. The training environment should be welcoming, non-judgmental, and open-minded. This type of atmosphere can go a long way for all of us. The end result Kenleigh likes to see is a client who values themselves to a higher standard than what they did initially. She hopes that her encouragement pushes clients past goals that they never imagined possible for themselves.
