Donna Nehrich Cole  -  Fitness Consultant


Back in 2009 I got tired of being sick and tired. At age 44 I was a recipe for disaster. At 320 pounds being sick and tired was a way of life. It was affecting my health. I decided to start eating less,healthier, and working out more. Fitness became my life! In 13 months I shed 150 pounds and became a Les Mills instructor. I currently have 4 Les Mills programs, Silver Sneakers, and Zumba. I took the NASM PT course and am awaiting taking my final. I decided to take a break from group fitness and concentrate on bringing the love of Bailey's and Fitness to the multitude!
