Megan Ring - I began teaching fitness classes in San Diego in 1989. Tamilee Webb of Buns of Steel fame was my instructor and I was fortunate to travel with her for several years training instructors. I landed at the Oxford Club in October of 1998 when I would bring my six month old to class with me. My six month old is now 17 and now does my classes. As long as my classes enjoy stepping, we will go "up, up, down, down."; It has been great to add Tabata into the mix!
Doniphan Stone - While in my last year at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, my interest in personal training as a lifestyle peaked. Just before graduating in 2011 with my Bachelor's degree in Business I also became certified as a personal trainer through NSCA. I realized that all through my life I had had a passion with physical fitness, as I naturally excelled in the athletics of choice. I thought my gifting would be put to best use by depositing into people what has flourished in me. With a wide background in physical fitness through my years in Collegiate soccer and receiving a black belt in Taekwondo, I could bring a lot to the table for others. Since my NSCA-CPT certification I have been training individuals, groups, and teams for over 4 years. My focus in training is that each person discovers a newness of their physical potential. This starts with the renewing of the mind and an increase awareness of the emotional state of the heart. Through training my hope is that each person leaves with a greater understanding of who they were created to be.
