Alexandra Craig


Owner – B.S. Exercise Physiology
Minor in Nutrition
A.C.S.M. Exercise Physiologist, Pn1, Pn2 Coach
Over 20 years of Experience

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 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.”
