Get to know the owners of our gym


Kendra Newhart

Co-Owner & Founder

Kendra, is an Army vet with over eleven years of military experience in leading and coaching large groups in physical fitness, logistical operations and finance. She graduated from Purdue University Global in April 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition degree and is currently in Grad School at PU Global in their Masters of Health Education program. Her military background brings a great deal of discipline, organization, and knowledge. Although always dreaming of practicing medicine while growing up, she prefers to focus on a more preventative approach to health and wellness. Being a mother to two young daughters, she understands the importance of taking care of herself first in order to be the best version that she can be for those around her. Kendra is fueled by her passion for wanting to help others live healthier and happier lives. After spending the majority of her deployment rebuilding her own physical and mental strength in the gym, she returned home on a mission to build a place for her family and those in her community to do the same.
