MEET THE OM-IES
OWNER / TEACHER / TRAINER
Liz's passion for fitness began at an early age. After one class she instantly knew that dance was her calling. Liz continued her studies through college and earned her BFA in Classical Dance Performance from SUNY Purchase. While there, she discovered a love for Pilates and group fitness. When she was 19 she received her first Personal Training certification and has not looked back! Liz believes that all aspects of fitness complement each other and holds many certifications including Pilates, Spinning, POUND, Yoga (RYT 200), and Sports Nutrition. In prior years you may have seen Liz on the jumbo-screen while she was dancing for the New Jersey Nets or the Florida Marlins Mermaids. Nowadays, when she is not in the studio she is probably raising her two kids, spending time with her loving husband, or hopefully with all of them together at the beach!
Joselyn has always had a passion for fitness. As a student, she has competed in volleyball, track, and weightlifting. After high school, Joselyn decided to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science at Florida Atlantic University. She started personal training at the Hollywood YMCA and has found a new home at the OM spot. Joselyn believes that movement is medicine and she has an enthusiasm for educating people on the value of exercise. When she's not with a client, you may find Joselyn lifting weights, rock climbing, rollerblading, running, or at a jujitsu class!
