MICKY BATES

Founder & CEO

Certified Group Fitness Instructor

Board Certified Tai Chi Instructor

After managing a women's fitness center for 7 years and spending the past 5 years teaching exercise, nutrition education, and Tai Chi classes to older adults, I decided it was time to fulfill my dream of owning my own fitness center for women. My passion to support and assist women in achieving their weight loss and fitness goals is a deep rooted desire after overcoming (and still working on!) my own battle with obesity and chronic health problems. I would love to share my story with you and show you how proper nutrition and physical activity can improve your quality of life. We are all a work in progress, but together we can achieve our goals and live longer, healthier, and more abundant lives.  

Rita Agenstein

Certified Zumba Gold Instructor

After attending Zumba classes at the YMCA for several years, Rita decided to obtain her Zumba Gold Instructor license in August 2020. Rita learned to dance standing on her dads shoes and has always loved music. Rita said "My family loved to move the furniture out of the way make room to dance!" Rita's goal is to keep herself fit while helping others remain active and enjoy the fun of moving to music.

Kari Campbell

Zumba (IGNITE) Instructor

Kari started attending Zumba classes 7 years ago and absolutely loved it from the start, especially the beat of the music and the feeling of pushing yourself to your personal best. She's  been teaching for 2 1/2 years and her favorite part is feeling the energy of the group she's teaching because they push her to continually better herself. According to Kari "it’s just a fun way to spend an hour!"
