MyLeanBody Boot Camp started in February of 2010 in Bloomington. It has turned into much more than just getting women a great workout and teaching them about eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle. We are a community of strong women working each day to get healthier and feel better. I love it. I love how supportive and encouraging this group is. You will not believe it until you experience it for yourself.
No matter what your goal is, if you want it badly enough, you can reach it. You can do anything you set your mind to. Tell us what you want and we will be right there with you the whole way. MyLeanBody Boot Camp is a way of life. Come and try it out, you will be amazed at how great you feel!
Meet Our Team:
Emily Reynolds *
Hi I’m Emily. I began training with my husband as soon as we started dating in 2008. Training both myself and other women quickly became my life’s work! I love it, and I cannot imagine doing anything else. I love showing other women how fit, strong, positive, and incredible they can become.
I believe that if we spend time taking care of ourselves, we will have more energy to give to the other responsibilities in our lives. My goal is that the time you invest with me and my staff is the best part of your day. You will have more energy and focus for everything else!
I want you to succeed in reaching your goals. Health and fitness are springboards to making changes in all aspect of your life. You will gain the confidence to do anything and everything that you aspire to achieve. You will have my support and guidance whenever you need it along the way. It will probably not be the easiest journey you have ever been on, but it is worth all of the hard work and effort that you put into it.
I cannot wait to meet you and to get you started in class! You will be so happy that you joined MyLeanBody Boot Camp! Get ready to be even more amazing!
Hi I’m Ashley!
My husband and I decided to change our lives when we started working out together in 2015. We had two small children and we knew that we wanted to be healthy, strong role models for them. We also changed our diets – started eating better and including more whole unprocessed foods. After a few month, I felt stronger and had so much more energy. I loved these new feelings and was determined to do whatever it took to keep feeling that way. Exercise, being strong and pushing myself has changed my life for the better and I want to help other women realize how great they can feel too!
On October 31, 2016 I walked into MyLeanBody Boot Camp for the first time and I was hooked. I started coming to the gym at least three days a week from then on. Now my day is not complete without a workout. I have loved the wonderful, positive and encouraging atmosphere from the beginning and am now thrilled to be a part of the MLBBC instructor team. Let me help you reach your potential getting stronger and feeling better every day!
Hi, I’m Becky!
Emily invited me to try MLBBC in 2017, and I am sure glad I did! In that very first class, I could feel the positive energy and dedication that the ladies at MLBBC brought to the room. I feel so lucky to be a part of a team that is dedicated to helping women change their lives through fitness and wellness! As a certified personal trainer (2010) and group fitness instructor (2011), I have worked with many different groups and taught a variety of fitness classes. I love the boot camp class style and the way I feel after a workout at MLBBC!
I am an assistant professor at Illinois State University and I teach in sport management. I live in Bloomington and spend my free time hiking, cycling, running, and relaxing with my boyfriend and friends.
I am really passionate about fitness and wellness and look forward to helping you reach your goals! Come and try a class and instantly feel the positive energy and support here at MLBBC. I promise you it will be 45 minutes that will change your life!
Hi, I’m Kim!
I love this place! I fell in love with MLBBC after my very first class! The class was intense and challenging, but I had so much fun! There is something really awesome about a class full of women pushing themselves as hard as they can! I feel blessed to have the opportunity to instruct here now too. I love helping people reach their goals and knowing I played a role in that.
Beginning with collegiate basketball, fitness has been a big part of my life! In college, I fell in love with strength training and have carried that passion with me into my adult life. My husband and I have 4 children, so staying fit and eating healthy is really important to me now! MLBBC workouts give me the strength, energy and stress relief I need to keep up with my little munchkins!
I am so glad that you are here!! Let me help you get the results that you are looking for. You CAN do this!
Hi, I’m Tracy!
I am super passionate about all things health and fitness. I LOVE working out and nourishing my body with healthy food! In addition, I truly believe that having the right mindset can completely change your life. I want to help every woman discover her own healthy passions and to realize how capable and amazing she is!
I have spent many years educating myself about fitness, nutrition and mindset but in 2018 I decided I wanted to start helping other women change their lives, achieve their goals and live a healthy lifestyle. I want women to embrace and enjoy what has been for me an ever changing, learning and growing journey. I believe there is no all-or-none perfection fitness destination. It is a lifelong lifestyle.
I obtained both my Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Health Coach certificates in 2018. As soon as I passed my Personal Trainer program, I knew exactly where I wanted to work…MLBBC! I was a member here a couple of years ago, and even though my time here was brief it left a huge impact on me. I have never seen or been to a gym with the kind of support, encouragement and love that MLBBC gives!!
I am honored and excited to be a part of this family and to be able to give the same to all the amazing women who come here.
Hi, I’m Melissa!
I am so excited to be a part of the MLBBC family! I am extremely passionate about all things health, fitness, and nutrition related. I was a group fitness instructor for about 7 years and have had my Personal Training Certification for 5 years. Whether it’s in a group or one-on-one, my passion lies in helping women reach their goals and also find a strength they may not have known was there.
When I am not at the gym you will find me running my two kiddos, Lucy and Max, to their activities or enjoying some time with my husband, Jarrod, and dog, Mae. We love being outside as much as possible and traveling when we get the chance.
I love to continue to challenge myself in and out of the gym. This year my husband and I will be tackling a very new challenge, the Spartan Trifecta.
It is truly an honor to be welcomed into MLBBC and I am so very excited to get to work out with you ladies!
Hi, I’m Rhonda!
I am the health and wellness coach here at MyLeanBody Boot Camp. I am a passionate health advocate and love all things related to diet and nutrition. But, that hasn’t always been the case in my life. It wasn’t until my mid 40’s that I found Emily and MLBBC after a lifetime of struggling to do diet and exercise on my own. I started doing a boot camp 3 days a week. My goal was to do that for a month just to see. Now it has been 7 years and I cannot imagine my life without MLBBC! Having been a chubby child to an adult peak weight of 222 lbs, exercise was not something I thought I could ever like, nor did I ever think I could be a ‘normal sized’ person. WOW, was I wrong! With the boot camp style workouts and learning more about food through MLBBC’s great support, I continued to lose some weight but more importantly I lost inches and became more confident in a new me.
Then as life happens, my body began to change despite all that I had been doing to maintain the great lifestyle shifts I had made with MLBBC. I sought out more holistic care for my health to address these health concerns and soon realized that all I had learned over the course of my journey could help others with similar issues. I pursed certification to become a Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach and now am able to help you on your journey as well.
As a health coach, I love working one-on-one with women to build a personalized, multi-faceted and holistic approach to healthy weight loss. I can give you support through education and by sharing my own personal experience to lasting lifestyle changes, freedom from restrictive dieting, body shaming, and negative emotional and mental patterns. I would love to talk with you about how to make your own health journey come true!
