About Us

Holly Gonwa, NASM, CPT, TPI-Titleist Performance Institute Fitness Level 1


I started in the fitness industry in 2002. I was looking to enhance my life as a stay at home mom. A friend at the YMCA, where I worked out, encouraged me to pursue a personal training certification. It was to be a part time job, however, I realized very quickly that I had found what I was meant to do in this life.  Teaching people to respect their body is so rewarding. I hope that I give back a fraction of what I receive everyday from my clients.

When I am away from the studio I enjoy running, cooking, spending time with my husband who's support on this journey has been amazing and my wonderful children. 

Julie McLandsborough, Personal & Small Group Training


My journey in the fitness industry began in 2000 as a group exercise instructor at the YMCA.  It was the perfect way to share my love of exercise and build relationships while my twins were young. In 2006, I decided to take it to the next level and get my certification in personal training. I’ve always enjoyed the challenges that each individual client presented from a physical and emotional perspective.  I believe in functional, multi joint movements that are beneficial to my clients outside of the gym. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, gardening, my family and friends and course all things active!

Jim Esten, Group Training/TRX/Mindfulness Practices


A record setting high school and college middle distance runner in the ’70s and early ’80s, Jim has been coaching young athletes and adults for over 30 years. His primary work these days is with adults, focusing on injury prevention and a healthy approach to aging. Jim is a strong proponent of functional movement and a holistic, healthy lifestyle to turn the aging process from something to be feared into a joy to be vibrantly experienced – physically, emotionally and spiritually. Jim resides in Cedarburg, WI with his wife Caryn and "many" children. Away from the studio, Jim is a soccer, theater, music, and gymnastics dad --- and can most often be found behind the wheel carting those very busy kids to and fro (or cooking for them!)
