Learn about a fitness facility in Westwood that offers personally guided workouts based on your unique abilities.


Training Personally encourages those in all stages of their fitness journey to keep going.

A local fitness facility invites everyone to keep trekking on their fitness journey, regardless of age or fitness level. “Training Personally is a gym in Westwood that welcomes everyone who has a desire to be the healthy person they were created to be,” Peggy Edwards, Personal Trainer and Owner of Training Personally, says. “It is a gym where clients are encouraged and celebrated for every success, no matter how big or small. It is a gym where you are personally guided through a workout based on your abilities.”

Edwards hasn’t always been into fitness. She started working out regularly in her late 30s. At the time she started working out, she had four children and her body was changing. 

This encouraged her to join a YMCA and started to attend resistance classes twice a week. “I was getting healthier and it was fun because I started to get to know the regulars in the class and I felt I was part of a family,” Edwards says. “If I didn’t show up for a class, everyone wanted to know why. It was great for accountability.”

She began teaching classes at the YMCA in 2002, and received her personal training certificate from the American Council on Exercise in 2008 and started training her family and friends. 

“Then, in 2012, I got a very strong feeling that I should open a gym so I could help more people in my community be the healthy humans God created them to be,” Edwards says. “The idea seemed crazy. I had a full-time job as a church administrative assistant and I still taught classes at the YMCA. I knew I would not be able to quit my day job, so where was the time? I prayed for direction, and the idea kept feeling like a ‘calling.’ Finally in January 2016, the gym opened with my husband’s support. It took him a while to warm up to the idea. I retired from my day job in October 2017.”

Training Personally became a LLC in October of 2015, and her gym opened on January 4, 2016. There are a variety of services offered at Training Personally, and they are: open times for circuit training, personal training, and you can get a fitness assessment done. 

Training Personally defines success by the achievements of Edwards’ clients who have never exercised before. One example she shares: “Her first success story was about how she could kneel down to tie her shoe and get back up without help,” Edwards says. “She has had many other little successes that have added up to stronger muscles, bones, better balance and a trimmer shape.”

Edwards offers another success story of a man who had a total knee replacement surgery: “I had a client who has had a total knee replacement. His leg is moving in ways he never thought possible,” she says. “I also have a young lady who has lost 70lbs. Every time someone tells me they can now move in a way they haven’t been able to is a success. We want to be able to move so we can do the things God created us to do.”

The gym is so important for the Cincinnati community. “I have clients coming from all over, but my heart is for the West Side,” Edwards says, adding that her business brings people of all shapes, sizes, and color together with two like-minded goals:

1. They want to exercise consistently in a challenging, friendly, fun and safe environment where they feel welcome and not judged.
2. They want to support local business.

Training Personally is located at 3634 Boudinot Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45211. To learn more, follow them on Facebook.

A unique yoga studio in Loveland is helping clients become the best version of themselves, inside and out.


Loveland Yoga and Wellness offers yoga and alternative healing practices.

Yoga isn’t just a form of exercise; it can be a lifestyle and gateway to wellness. That’s the idea behind one local yoga studio.

“Loveland Yoga and Wellness is a small boutique, yoga and wellness studio offering alternative healing practices,” says Linda Becker, Owner of Loveland Yoga and Wellness.

Becker opened the studio in June 2014, who is also the massage therapist there. Loveland Yoga and Wellness is located in Old Loveland, near the Little Miami Bike Trail at 429 West Loveland Avenue.

The inspiration for the business came from having experience in the yoga industry for eight years. “Many students came to take classes, but could not find appropriate classes for their needs. Few options were available for older beginners, students with limited mobility, etc. I was becoming more interested in yoga accessible for everyone,” Becker says. “Thus I entered training to become a certified yoga therapist. I wanted to open a yoga wellness center offering several healing modalities. I wanted to reach people who were intimidated by typical yoga studios and didn’t think yoga was for them.”

There are a variety of services offered at the studio. These services include:

• Urban Zen Integrative Therapy: “Integrates the healing modalities of gentle yoga, essential oils and Reiki to lessen most symptoms of the modern day lifestyle: pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, constipation, exhaustion, and sadness,” she says. “Meant to complement modern medicine. Urban Zen is a self-care practice to bring balance to the body.”
• Reiki: “Reiki is a Japanese healing practice that is associated with the benefits of deep relaxation, stress reduction, more restful sleep, and enhanced immune functioning,” Becker says.
• Aromatherapy: “Aromatherapy uses essential oils made from plant materials to promote relaxation, relieve stress and anxiety, and to lessen symptoms from acute and chronic health conditions,” she says.
• Raindrop Technique: “The oils are layered on the neck, back, and feet bringing about balance and electrical alignment,” she says.

Loveland Yoga and Wellness is for anybody to enjoy. “It’s real yoga for real people. We believe that every person- no matter the age, health condition, experience or life stage, can benefit from the calming and healing benefits of yoga,” Becker says. “We offer private instruction and small classes for all stages of life- stressed out, overworked, injured, joint/back/neck pain, seniors and more. Each class is tailored to the specific needs of the group.” The space “provides a local space for the community to come together and support each other on their wellness journey,” she says.

See how one local fitness studio encourages and empowers their clients to live better lives from the inside out.


Rooks Fitness helps empower people to reclaim their health.

One local fitness facility wants to see you grow personally, in addition to seeing results in the mirror.

“Rooks Fitness is a place where people are empowered to reclaim their health, love themselves and live their best years,” Erica Rooks, Owner of Rooks Fitness and Personal Trainer, says. 

Rooks Fitness was born in 2015, but their first actual location opened in the summer of 2017. Today, they have six employees, hundreds of happy client testimonials, and a concept that continues to grow.

The inspiration behind starting the business came from Rooks going to gyms and working in corporate gyms where people didn’t care about the success of their clients and members, “ she says. “In fact, their model thrives on thousands of members that pay monthly dues and never use the facility at all! This was a truly devastating discovery for me. Embarking on the journey to reclaim your health, improve self-esteem, move and feel better, etc, is scary as hell,” Rooks says. “I wanted to create a place that people felt welcome , supported, and comfortable enough to keep coming, (and even look forward to coming), so that they can achieve all the goals that brought them through our doors in the first place. Our clients are real people, with real lives, real struggles, real triumphs… families, jobs, and lives outside of our walls. We help them navigate their own journey in realistic and sustainable ways to realize long-term success. That is something a big box gym simply cannot compete with.”

Rooks Fitness offers a variety of services that include: 

  • Personal Training 
  • Functional Fitness Classes 
  • Yoga Classes

Rooks says the Functional Fitness classes have a maximum of 12 people. “This means  everyone still benefits from the time and attention of our trainers (form correction, motivation, modification, etc.),” she explains. “No two classes are the same! We love keeping things fun and interesting, so one day you may play Exercise Monopoly and another you may be participating in partner drills.”

Their yoga classes are also very effective and popular, Rooks says.  “Adrienne, our resident licensed massage therapist, is certified in many modalities, including CranioSacral, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Hot Stone, Prenatal, and other Swedish modalities,” she adds. “She is passionate about helping people facilitate healing and improve bodily function through massage.”

According to Rooks, Rooks Fitness is a unique business that uses a holistic approach – mind, body and spirit – and it is evident through every interaction. “We promote taking extraordinary care of ourselves, and that is much more than just exercise,” she explains. “To help support that mission, every year I take my clients on a healthy retreat, coming up in mid-April, where we work on personal development, goal setting, and other important activities to ensure our clients can reach their full potential.”

Rooks says the business is important for the community because they provide education, support and empowerment to people. “As we continue to settle into Blue Ash, we look forward to working with other local businesses and organizations to create a positive impact on our community and its culture,” she explains. 

Rooks Fitness is located at Summit Park, 4460 Lake Forest Drive, Suite 224, Blue Ash, Ohio 45242. To learn more, visit their Facebook, Instagram and website

Silent… disco… yoga… you read that right. Keep reading to learn about this unique yogi experience you won’t want to miss. 

Silent… disco… yoga… Yes, these three things you wouldn’t necessarily think pair together well are joining forces for a yogi experience like no other.

With the help of the 21c Hotel, Sound Off Yoga has been able to happen in the Cincinnati.

“Our practice is called ‘Sound Off Yoga.’ However, our company started at festivals doing silent discos, which is basically a headphone dance party where guests get to party using headphones in a place of amplified sound,” Phillip Galaviz, Sound Off Colorado partner, says. “With our technology, we can have three different DJs play at the same time and the user gets to pick which music they want to listen to by switching channels on the headphones and controlling their own volume. We took this headphone experience and applied it to yoga, then coined the name, ‘Silent Disco Yoga,’ so people would get the gist of yoga with headphones.”

The inspiration behind the event comes from a desire to make yoga accessible to the people who feel self-conscious or people who can’t hear the cues or instruction happening during a class. “With Sound Off headphones, every person gets crystal clear sound wherever they are in the room. It also gives you a very personalized experience, as if the instructor is speaking directly in your ear, which also helps to keep out distractions and stay focused on practice while still feeling a sense of connection with the people practicing next to you. It’s amazing,” Galaviz says

The silent part isn’t just for the users or students, but there is not any amplified sound for people to be distracted by. “It allows us to do pop up classes in cool public spaces without creating any noise violations,” he says.

Jennifer Lynn, Owner of Fit Philosophie LLC, holds the event in the Cincinnati area and is passionate about creating an enjoyable experience for the people coming to each of the events. “Success is providing a unique, memorable, and joyful experience to our participants, We want them to experience how in a crowd of 500 people, you can simultaneously have a connection to community while turning inward by isolating the sound! It’s quite wondrous,” she says. “It’s uplifting and the ‘feel good’ is contagious.”

Lynn’s most memorable moment of working on the event so far has been having a call with Singapore, New York City, Denver and Cincinnati all at once. “This call made me certain that Sound Off is a company with a big heart and they are open to expanding their giving impacts by working with me (a B1G1 partner) and by doing so, changing the world one impact at a time.”

A new local group wants to get your day started in a fun, unique way: with a DJ’ed dance party.


Get Up is a morning dance party that brings other health enthusiasts together.

The party starts at 7… a.m.

That’s the idea behind a new concept called “Get Up” that features a DJ’ed dance party in one of downtown-Cincinnati’s hotspots, bright and early to rejuvenate attendees before starting their day.

“Get Up fuses mindfulness with expression and connection through a high energy dance experience. The first event [took] place at 6:00 a.m. on March 15 at Aster,” Sarah Habib, CEO and Founder of Mission 2 Move, says. “Starting with deep house yoga at 6:00 a.m. to calm the mind and open the heart, the real party begins at 7:00 a.m. with ‘a beat pumpin’ dance part, featuring live DJ.”

Then it’s time to fuel up, she says, as “attendees rejuvenate with beverages and snacks before leaving motivated, energized and inspired to face whatever their day has in store.”

This is the first Get Up event happening in the Cincinnati area. In addition to Habib, “Kai Schneider, Eric Elias, Annie Kanter are behind Cincinnati’s first ever morning yoga and dance party called Get Up,” she says. “It was Inspired by the wildly popular early morning movement in New York and San Francisco. All of us had participated in similar events in other cities and wanted to bring the magic here to Cincinnati, all in an effort to build culture.”

The name of the event came from a desire to have fun in the morning. “No better way to start the day than with Get Up,” Habib says. 

The point of having the event in the morning is to set the tone for the day. “The whole point is to set the intention for the day, doing something out of the ordinary, get up and have fun!” What goes into organizing the event is “bringing together the right providers, from location to DJ to yoga teacher,” Habib explains. Her favorite part of working on the Get Up event is “Building culture in Cincinnati,” she says. 

Aster is located at 8 East 4th Street, in downtown Cincinnati. To learn more about Get Up, follow them on Facebook and their website.

Learn about a physician-guided, technology-based program that helps you lose 15-30 pounds in a month and keep it off.


This client lost 50 pounds working with Cincinnati Transformation.

Do you want to experience a company that wants to see people transform their bodies? Cincinnati Transformation is “a technology based program that helps clients lose an average of 15-30 pounds in 30 days,” says Ashley Berlin, Weight Loss and Body Consultant. “Or for those people not looking to lose weight, we help balance out any inflammation, toxicity, mineral deficiencies and a variety of other things.”

The inspiration behind starting the business came from the exclusive technology being introduced to them. “When we were introduced to the technology that could give us over 502 biomarkers, which are essentially data points about what’s happening inside each of our bodies. We looked at the information and developed programs to help ourselves and our families get healthy,” she says. “Once we saw the results, how much our health elevated and the weight loss a few of us experienced, we knew we had to share this system with our community.”

The name of the business came from a heart for serving the community. “My husband is a chiropractor in the area and I owned a gym for seven years, so we’ve always had the big picture vision of helping the people we live near operate to their full potential of health. And through the course of this program, we’ve seen people who didn’t believe they could lose more than a few pounds here and there, or lose weight and keep it off, do just that,” Berlin says. “So the heart of the business is literally about transformations happening right here in Cincinnati.”

The different services that are offered at Cincinnati Transformation are weight loss programs, body balancing programs, cleanse programs, and once you’ve graduated from any of these programs, they offer a balancing for life program. 

Dr. Ryan Berlin

One of their most programs is a Weight Loss Program that lasts 30 days. “It’s a technology-driven program that looks specifically at your body, reads the age your metabolism is working at and we create a program specific to your body to get you in the best health possible,” says Berlin. “We’ve found that our average client loses between 15-30 pounds in 30 days. We had clients whose doctors have taken them off medications, and most importantly, they feel better than they ever have in their lives.”

There is an extensive process that happens with the 30-Day Weight Loss Program. “We start with a frequency based scan that reads 502 different biomarkers to tell us what your most stressed organs are, what toxins can be found in your body, it will give us a food list, to eat and to not eat, for proteins, fruits and vegetables and we’ll find out specifically, which of our detox, anti-inflammatory, minerals and pure sea vegetable dosages you’ll need to bring your into balance,” Berlin says. “We have a very detailed meal plan during the 30 days, which also allows you to cook your own food the entire time, making sure nothing you’re eating is prepackaged.”

Berlin loves to help people in the community to achieve their health goals. “It brings as much satisfaction to us as it does them,” she says. “If every person in our community who was stuck at a weight they are unhappy with could experience what our clients do at the end of our program, we would all be living at such a higher potential, whether it’s the energy to play with our kids and grandkids, not feel tired every day, clear up certain health conditions that have been nagging at us,” Berlin says, “whatever it is, great health is the ultimate goal.”

A local organization is hosting a fun event to raise funds for couples battling infertility.

A local couple turned their stumbling blocks with infertility into stepping stones for another couples battling similar struggles.

“Parental Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the infertility community through emotional and financial support,” Jennifer Bross, Founder of Parental Hope, says. “The burdens imposed on a couple battling infertility are enormous. Because infertility is a little known and often a misunderstood disease, those diagnosed with infertility can feel isolated and alone.” 

She and her husband know those feelings all too well, which is why — after having their twins through lengthy fertility treatments that were luckily covered by insurance, as many aren’t — they wanted to create an organization that helps others struggling with the emotional, physical, and financial struggles of infertility.

The mission of Parental Hope is to make people aware of infertility and provide couples with emotional and financial support. Parental Hope helps couples with infertility through:

1. Parental Hope Family Grants: “We help alleviate the financial burden of infertility,” she says.
2. Various Events and Public Outreach: “Parental Hope advocates for those struggling with infertility by raising awareness and educating the public,” Bross says.
3. Quarterly Peer-Led Support: “Parental Hope helps alleviate the emotional burden of couples battling infertility,” she says.

As a way to help educate people about infertility, Parental Hope produces an annual event, during National Infertility Week in April “to help spread awareness that this disease affects one in eight couples,” she says. 

The event is called Journey To Parenthood, “The name seemed fitting because there’s always a journey to parenthood – whether it’s an easy or difficult one,” Bross says. “We wanted an event name that holds true to what our mission is and what our organization stands for.” 

This year, it’ll be held at the Newport Syndicate in Newport, Kentucky on Saturday April 21, 2018. The inspiration behind starting the event came from Bross wanting to bring the infertility community together, and wanting to lift the financial burdens of couples battling with infertility. “There will be open bar, dinner by the bite, live music, silent auction, and the biggest draw of the event is the LIVE IVF raffle that will change one person’s life,” Bross says. 

There is a lot that goes into preparing for the event. In fact, there are a total of 12 people who help plan and execute the event. “We start planning our April event in July and have a dedicated volunteer event and fundraising committee that meticulously plans for nine solid months,” Bross says.

The event is important because “It will bring the infertility community together, while changing lives and lifting the financial burden of IVF,” Bross says. “The success of the event is based off of attendance and beating last year’s fundraising goal. But most importantly, a successful event is bringing hope to those currently battling infertility.”

Inspired by her own struggles, learn about a local fitness instructor who helps people to get healthy by working on both their physical and mental health.


Yoga with Erika is offered at the Norwood Community Center.

Erika McClure, Certified Yoga Instructor, started her business Yoga with Erika in 2017 with humble beginnings.

“I teach the majority of my classes at the Norwood Community Center. My husband and I fixed up a room on the second floor, creating a zen yoga space,” she says. “I also teach a few classes at Rooks Fitness in Blue Ash, and a class every month at Shumrick and Leys Distillery in Norwood. That’s a fun one!”

What got McClure into the fitness industry was when she was diagnosed with a chronic disease. “I’ve always been active and into health, but started focusing a lot more on it when I got diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Celiac Disease causes inflammation in the body and joints, making some exercises hard and painful,” she explains. “Yoga is gentle on your joints, and can be modified to fit any body type, making it universal. I tried several other forms of fitness, but always came back to yoga. Through my struggles, I learned that yoga can work for everybody, and wanted to show people that didn’t think they could ‘work out’ that they could!”

Erika McClure of Yoga with Erika

She has experience and education that prepared her for Yoga with Erika. “I successfully completed the RYS 200 Hour Training Program at Simply Power Yoga and used many guinea yogis to practice on,” McClure says.

The inspiration for the business came from practicing her teaching with friends, family and her co-workers. “I would always say, hey, come do yoga with me, which inspired the name, ‘Yoga with Erika,’ and that’s what inspired me to reach out to our local community center.”

Yoga with Erika offers a variety of classes at her studio in the Norwood Community Center:

  • “60 minute Vinyasa Flow – “Classes that focus on moving with breath as we flow from one pose to the next,” McClure says. “In these classes, we elevate our heart rate and work on building lean muscle. Classes are Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm and Saturday at 9am.”
  • Gentle 45- “Classes that are less intense and focus on breathing, stretching, and correct posture during poses,” she says. “Gentle classes are 45 minutes and appropriate for all levels; but especially geared for those recovering from injury or just getting back into fitness. Classes are Wednesday at 5:45pm and Saturday at 10:45am.”
  • Family classes happen on the last Thursday of each month at 6pm. It’s open for all ages, from toddlers to adults. 
“I also teach two lunch time Power-Hour classes at Rooks Fitness in Blue Ash, on Tuesday and Thursday from 2-3,” she says. “My classes are $10 for 1 or $25 for 3.”

Yoga with Erika defines success by having people feel good after her classes. “When I first started teaching at the Norwood Community Center, I would have maybe one or two students and sometimes’ nobody would show up. Now, I have a couple regulars and a few drop-ins for each class,” McClure says. “I’ve recently added new classes to the schedule, and already have regulars for those. People who leave my classes, leave feeling rejuvenated and good about themselves. To me, that’s success!”

McClure says her business is an important service for the community because it fits for all ages, sizes and abilities. “Yoga is not only great for the physical body,” she adds, “it does wonders for the mental body, too. Who doesn’t need that?”

She loves coming back to work every day because her students love it. “I recently had a student say after class, ‘I love yoga, and I’m so glad I started taking classes with you. If I’m not in class, it’s because I’m at work. That’s the only thing that keeps me away,’” McClure says. “I had another student that had to miss a few classes due to work, say ‘I hate missing yoga. My body knows when I haven’t been.’  My students keep me coming back.”

The Norwood Community Center is located at 1810 Courtland Avenue, 45212. To learn more about Yoga with Erika, follow her on Facebook or visit her website.
