This is a true calling for me; it started in high school with football and boxing.  My passion for training was developed in the Air Force through helping others in my unit and squad pass their physical conditioning exams.  After 12 years with Ballys, I decided to create ZellaDor with my partner.  My goal is to meet people where they are and encourage them to focus on what they can do...not what they can't!

Owning a gym was never on my radar.  I spent the first 32 years of my life overweight. I had always been terrified to walk in to gym. Will people be staring at me?  Wondering why I'm there? Judging me?  After being told I was borderline Type II diabetes, I knew it was time to change, regardless of my fear.  That same week, I met and hired Ty at Bally's and through working with him, lost 100 pounds.  My experience with Ty made me want to do for others what he had done for me.  I became a nationally certified personal trainer as well as a certified wellness coach through a program with the Mayo Clinic, located in Rochester, MN.   Out of all of that, ZellaDor was born!

Liz - Owner/Personal Trainer

My fitness journey started in January 2009 when it was difficult to even walk on a treadmill for 15 minutes, and I was only in my 20s. I knew I had to make change. Finding a fitness fam and support of like-minded people make the journey a life-style! Zumba was my first love, I have participate in countless 5ks, and even completed 2 half marathons. TABATA is my current workout of choice. Fast pace, sweaty, challenging workouts, good for all fitness levels!

Tina - Group Fitness Instructor

I've been a musical performer and fitness instructor for many years. My dance/performance background has given me the enthusiasm and energy it takes to teach all kinds of group fitness: Zumba, chair fitness, spin, Silver Sneakers and more. I take teaching my clients personally - if they are not having fun - I'm not having fun! Please stop in and join one of my classes - I will do my best to make your heart smile and your body sweat ! ( and maybe have a few laughs - I kind of fancy myself a bit of a comedienne ) Suzi : where inspiration and perspiration meet!

Suzi - Group Fitness Instructor

Hi everyone! I’ve been instructing classes at ZellaDor since they opened. I’ve taught lots of classes here...POUND, Generation POUND, Kickboxing, Zumba, Zumba Step, and ZD Kids Fit. For me, ZellaDor is my home away from home. I have a demanding day job so when it’s time to relax and have fun, I head to ZellaDor. Having amazing hard-working clients and friends makes teaching less of a job and more of a party. When I’m not at the gym, I love camping, hiking and spending time with my family. Being silly seems to be my specialty. I’m up for trying new things and living life to the fullest. All of my classes are accessible to all levels of fitness. Just keep moving and have fun!
