Celeste is a personal trainer, wellness coach and owner of Functional Fitness Personal Training in Lawrenceville, Georgia. With 29 years of experience in the fitness and wellness business she has a lot of passion and knowledge in an industry that is constantly evolving. Being very athletic while growing up, a tomboy actually, she decided that getting into aerobics as a hobby would allow her to continue fitness into her adult life. That hobby grew into a career that has taken her a lot of places, with an enthusiasm for helping people find their strengths, mentally and physically, and conquer things they never thought they could.
Celeste's background has covered teaching group fitness classes of every kind, gym consulting work, coached girl's fast pitch softball for 8 years, presenter and educator at fitness training workshops, public speaker on fitness and nutrition, personal trainer on the Discovery Health Channel television channel, "The National Body Challenge", author for IDEA Fitness Journal, owner of a personal training business for the past 18 years, and now the owner of Functional Fitness Personal Training and wellness coaching for the past 8 years.
Celeste holds certifications in Personal Training, Wellness Coach, Group Fitness, Advanced Weight Training, Nutrition, Post Rehab, Senior Fitness, Kickboxing, Prenatal Fitness and more.
Being outside is usually where you will find her exercising or playing sports. Celeste plays on a few tennis teams, is an advanced horseback rider, hikes every chance she gets, loves to travel the world, walks and runs supporting friends and good causes, gardening, volunteering and loves a good house or yard project. Most important in her life is definitely God, her family, friends and helping others in need.
Her personal training gym's mantra explains their concept very well, "We are a gym community of trainers, coaches and members working together to achieve a healthy lifestyle of fitness and wellness with the body and mind." Building a strong team of support is so important for people first starting their journey toward a lifestyle of fitness and wellness. At her gym each new client is introduced to everyone in the gym by name, whether they are working together in a small group or just in the gym doing their thing. The educating, mentoring and motivation through team work begins right away between the client and trainer, focusing on the body, mind and spirit as one. They have a great time celebrating each success and encouraging along the way when needed. Celeste works with all ages from teenagers to seniors, guiding them toward their goals while teaching them new habits for a healthy lifestyle.
