Client Testimonials

"Working with Blake has been incredibly helpful. In our work together he has assembled a program that has helped me improve my form and my overall strength. He provides a great mix of support and pushing to do better. Getting to work with him provides that extra motivation to get into the gym and do the work."

— Andy M.

"Angie has helped me not only gain strength, but gain confidence in the gym. She is one of the kindest but fiercest souls I have ever met. If you’re looking to get your butt kicked and have a good time, check her out! I’d recommend her to anyone, regardless of fitness level!"

— Sophia P. 

"Working with Hayle has been SUCH a pleasure. Not only is she super knowledgeable but she was able to meet me where I was at and developed a program where each week I see progress but always feels totally doable. Not to mention we have so much FUN in our sessions. I always feel like I am having a catch up with a friend rather than a boring workout."

"Working with Jack is the highlight of my week! Between the program he wrote for me and our training sessions, my deadlift has so far increased by nearly 100lbs, my bench by 25lbs, and I feel fully confident in the weight room and around the gym. His knowledge, patience, and support are invaluable, and I can’t imagine life without training with him now!"

Hayle Sundquist


Hayle is a NESTA certified personal trainer and group fitness coach. Born and raised in Montana, Hayle loves backpacking, fly fishing and paddle boarding. Being raised in a small sports centered community allowed her to gain a competitive mindset and love for athletics. After high school, Hayle competed in track for the University of Montana. Unfortunately, after two years of repetitive injuries, her sprinting career ended by fracturing both feet. Finishing her athletic career and starting from ground zero allowed Hayle to gain a new perspective on health and fitness and helped her find her passion for coaching. Hayle’s goal is to make sure people gain confidence inside and outside of the gym. I will push people to break through their wall of comfort, while also coaching the importance of listening to their body.
