Where YOU Define YOUR Strong

Where YOU Define YOUR strong.

 
 

Thousands of Lives: Changed

That’s what decades of diverse, collective experience from Bodies by Burgoon trainers will get you. They guide. They coach. They laugh. They cry. They cheer. And they believe in every single person making personal commitments to health.

There is no one-size-fits-all in fitness. ...and making an experience one that individually motivates you to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve is most important. 

For the trainers, it’s about what’s right for each of their unique clients – it might be losing weight, gaining weight, getting stronger, getting faster, or learning to walk. There’s no magic…only hard work. And they know how to make the hard work fun and rewarding with total body workouts that leave your body and your mind recharged.

Everyone is welcome — all shapes, all sizes, all colors, all fitness levels, all lifestyles. Sweat and hard work are our common ground.

 
Leah Anderson - Yoga/Operations I stumbled into Bodies by Burgoon as part of a group training session for Girls on the Run and it completely took hold of me. After that session I knew I needed to be a part of this amazing community.

Dawn Bryant - Operations When I was 11, I earned a 2nd place ribbon in the big fifth track meet for my speedy contribution to my team’s relay. I never forgot about that ribbon because, until recently, it was the only reminder that maybe I had a little bit of athleticism hidden somewhere in my being.

Jaime Burgoon - Operations Fitness was introduced to me at a young age. My father was diagnosed with cancer on Christmas Eve while my mother was pregnant with me, and 3 months later I was born. My father was very sick throughout my childhood and my brother (Jason) took over raising me when I was born and still does to this day. He kept me active at a very young age with running, push-ups, and sit-ups till my stomach ached. I think I was the only third grader with a 6-pack… I remember my gym teacher bringing me into the middle of the gym floor during gym class and having me demonstrate a push-up in front of everyone exclaiming, “Now that is how a push-up is done!”

Jason Burgoon - Owner/Trainer My best friend was a proud sheetrock taper, the man I lifted weights with, the man who taught me kickboxing, and a happy parent. He was my dad. And, all I ever wanted to do was make him proud. My earliest memories are working with him on Saturday mornings. And at each job we worked together, he’d say to everyone about me, “Watch how high he can kick!” He taught me to work hard, work honestly, treat people with respect, and to always stick up for people smaller or weaker than me, if they needed it. What he taught me has guided my life.

Aldon Tibbs - Trainer When I was 21 I was playing in a band called Clair de Lune. At that time, I could only imagine becoming a rock star. But then, I became a dad. My son Landon was born on December 24th, 2002, and he changed everything. After Landon was born, I really began to get into fitness. I started running and lifting weights. I had to get active because I had an active son.
