Colton Key
Studio Manager

Who is Colton?

I was born and raised in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I wrestled for Eagleville High School then joined the Marine Corps after I graduated high school. In my free time, I like to be outdoors hiking, hunting or walking my blue heeler, Hank. If you’re lucky, you might get to see him in the studio!

I’m passionate about my fitness as well as helping others.

How did you get into fitness/wellness?

I have been into fitness pretty much my whole life. My dad was into fitness, so as a kid he made me do 200 pushups every day. I learned a lot about the body and how to work out from my dad growing up. Then, during wrestling season in high school, I had to be very conscious about my weight. I learned how to manage my weight through this.

My professional fitness career started after high school. I started training people between classes while I was at MTSU. My next jump was when I joined the Marine Corps in 2013 and I focused on being as fit as possible. While there, I learned I enjoyed helping others along their fitness journey as well as working on my own wellness.

What are your favorite and least favorite exercises?

My least favorite is lunges. I just hate them.

My favorite is biceps curls because I like being able to see the different muscles in my arm work all at once.

The Crew

  • Michelle Wykoff
    ACSM Certified Personal Trainer

    Certifications: Personal trainer, American College of Sports Medicine

    Who is Michelle?

    I'm originally from East Tennessee but moved to Middle Tennessee to go to MTSU. I've lived here for seven years now! In my free time, I like to hang out with friends, read, go to the gym, and play or go on walks with my dog.

    How did you get into fitness/wellness?

    I have always lived an active lifestyle. In elementary school, I did gymnastics. Once I got older and moved on to middle school, I played soccer, basketball, and softball. I decided to focus on volleyball in high school. I played the setter position.

    When I moved onto college, I didn't continue to play sports, so I got a gym membership. I would look up exercise plans to follow while I was there. Exercising became my stress relief after a long day and a way to push myself mentally and physically.

    After a while, I became unmotivated with my workouts, so I hired a trainer for a year to push me and keep me accountable. That's what sparked me to become a personal trainer. Fast forward another year and a half and I am now a certified personal trainer by the American College of Sports Medicine. I have a passion for helping others reach their goals and I truly love being able to celebrate those accomplishments with my clients.

    What are your favorite and least favorite exercises?

    My favorite exercise is a straight leg deadlift. I have stubborn hamstrings and I feel like it’s the only exercise that really works them well enough. Leg day is my favorite in general, but these make me feel especially strong.

    My least favorite exercise is bench press. The chest is my weakest muscle group so that day is a struggle.

  • Michael Kenney
    ACSM Certified Exercise Physiologist

    Education: B.S. in Exercise Science from Middle Tennessee State University
    Certifications: Exercise physiology, American College of Sports Medicine

    Who is Michael?

    I was born in Illinois, but my family moved to Middle Tennessee when I was eight and we have called it home ever since.

    I grew up in Lebanon, Tennessee, and got my bachelor’s degree at Middle Tennessee State University in exercise science. After graduating, I got my exercise physiology certification through the American College of Sports Medicine.

    As a Marine, I have learned a lot about people. The main thing is that you can always push yourself and others further than you think you can. Your body is an amazing biological machine and can do more than most people give it credit for.

    How did you get into fitness/wellness?

    When I was younger, I got injured because of bad advice on how to lift and workout. I didn’t want that cycle to keep happening. I learned first-hand and through formal education how to become healthy and fit safely.

    I love seeing the progress and the transformation that my clients experience. I always engage with my clients on how their daily nutritional and fitness habits impact and change them. Whether your goal is looking better, gaining energy through nutrient-dense food, keeping up with your children or grandchildren, or anything in between, we can achieve anything through proper diet and exercise.

    What are your favorite and least favorite exercises?

    My favorite exercise is a pull-up. You can see the back muscles flex through their range of motion.

    My least favorite exercise is the bear crawl.

I prepare and train others to accomplish their goals by guiding them through specific physical and mental objectives.

    How did you get into fitness/wellness?

    Fitness is all I know. I have participated in sports such as football, basketball, and baseball since I was four years old. I also played football and baseball for Cumberland University, and I continue to engage in these sports today.

I continued my education and became a certified exercise physiologist through ACSM.

    How did you get into fitness/wellness?

    I’ve always been active. I played outside as a kid, weight lifted for football in high school and played racquetball in college for fun.

    When my mother needed help losing weight to get ready for bariatric surgery, she asked me to assist her. After that, I realized how much I enjoyed helping her reach her goal and I attained my certification. Health and fitness is an all-year commitment that I strive to help others maintain.

  • Ana Walker
    Wellness coach

    EDUCATION: Currently studying public relations at Middle Tennessee State University with a minor in nutrition 

    Who is Ana?

    I am a public relations major at Middle Tennessee State University with a minor in nutrition. I’m originally from Wisconsin, so I love cheese and the Badgers! I transferred and moved to Murfreesboro in August 2016 and I don’t plan on leaving anytime soon.

    How did you get into fitness/wellness?

    I started working out regularly in January of 2016. Cardio was boring and repetitive to me, so I decided to get into lifting. From the start, I knew I wanted to learn more and build my strength.

    When I moved to Tennessee, I met people who are personal trainers and knew a lot about fitness and nutrition. The more I learned, the more I loved it! I was still set on going to school for public relations, but I wanted to do so in the fitness world.

    I love to push myself and help others on their fitness journey.

    What are your favorite and least favorite exercise?

    My favorite exercise is lat pulldown. I love working my back muscles!

    My least favorite exercise is anything involving the sled. It’s a perfect, awful mix of strength and cardio and it kicks my butt.
