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.”

Francesca Bankovich

B.S. Exercise Science
B.A. Italian
NASM Certified Personal Trainer

Francesca believes that fitness training is an integral part of not only becoming healthier, but improving overall quality of life. Her intent while training is to improve a client’s fitness so that it will translate into other aspects of their life. She hopes to empower them to continue their journey to better health no matter what. Francesca wants the client to be coachable and willing to step up to the plate during the training sessions. Clients should be invested in continuously improving their health.

The goal of fitness training is to improve the neuromuscular connection - brain to body awareness, increase strength, prevent injury, and maintain muscle throughout life to support the goals clients need as they get older. Francesca believes training should help clients gain confidence about themselves, their feelings about their body and their ability to live a certain quality of life. The training environment should be clean, organized, safe, functional and welcoming to all!

Francesca would like to see clients feel better in their skin, have an improved quality of life and be appreciative of what physical fitness can and has done for them. She likes clients to celebrate their “mini wins” so they can keep working toward their bigger goal!

Justin Hammer


B.S. Human Nutrition
NESTA Certified Personal Trainer
NESTA Certified Metabolic Training Specialist

Kristin believes that fitness training is vital to living a long and healthy life! She also believes that it should be fun in order to be sustainable. Her intent while training is to help clients reach their goals in the most efficient way possible. She would like the client to show up and push themselves during every session in order to reach their goals. Whether the goal is to improve their health, get stronger, increase flexibility, lose weight, or gain strength, they should be ready! The goal of fitness training, in general, is to improve your overall physical fitness, whatever it is; from losing weight to just performing daily activities.

The studio environment should be fun and inviting, yet stern enough to push the client when necessary. The end result should be a happy client who has reached their goals. Ideally, Kristin would love to see clients reach goals that they didn’t even realize they needed. For example, noticing how much better they feel or how much more energy they have. Attaining these extra goals are a huge motivator and keep clients healthy for life!

Colin believes that fitness training is a way to improve physical, emotional, and social well-being. He likes to learn about client challenges and brainstorm about how to overcome those challenges. His intent while training is to see improvement in the clients’ functionality through improving cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness. The clients’ intent when training should be to work hard while being engaged and willing to try new ideas and exercises!

Colin believes the overall goal of fitness training is to improve physical and emotional health. The training environment should be as much of a learning experience as it is a place to increase physical fitness! The “end result” of each session is to see improvements in physical fitness as well as an increase in knowledge and tools to maintain or continue making progress in overall health.

Jenn Wall

Jenn believes that our bodies were designed specifically for great movement. Therefore, fitness training is essential to a lifelong healthy and happy body! Her intent while training is to challenge each client! Jenn wants each session to be memorable and something to share with their friends. The training session should be worthwhile, challenging, fun, rewarding and most importantly – unique! Clients should be ready to give 100% and leave the session feeling satisfied and with proof of the work they just did! The goal of fitness training is to better your body in respect to strength, endurance, body composition and mindset! The training environment should help with that by being motivating and engaging! Clients should look forward to the next exercise and next workout as another achievement to earn.

Jenn would like her clients to no longer find working out to be a challenge to incorporate into their lifestyle. She hopes working out will be seen as a routine or hobby and not as a “have to” or “appointment.” Jennifer looks forward to getting to know every client and to help develop a more personalized workout so they reach their deserved results!
