Build Healthy Habits and Achieve Lasting Results at 2PiFit

Celena Koerber, the owner of 2PiFit located in Wadsworth, Ohio, has undergone a remarkable transformation over the past few years, transitioning from an industrial engineer in the corporate world to a successful entrepreneur.

After being diagnosed with a chronic illness in 2013 that left her practically bedridden, she decided to take control of her health and embarked on a transformative journey toward wellness. This health scare led her to functional medicine and the study of the human body's systems, which ultimately led her to a career in the fitness industry (and minimizing most of her ailments).

Her understanding of the interconnectivity of the human body and her experience in analyzing complex systems gave her a unique perspective on how exercise, nutrition and lifestyle management can impact overall health and well-being. Through her own journey to health and wellness, Celena found her passion in helping others achieve their own health goals, and she realized that her purpose in life was to help people improve their lives through fitness and lifestyle management.

It started as a side hustle in 2017, when Celena decided to pursue certifications that would allow her to become a professional in the field. She started with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer program, which gave her a strong foundation in exercise science and program design. She then went on to gain her Fitness Nutrition Specialization through NASM and Nutrition Coaching certification through Precision Nutrition, which allowed her to provide clients with personalized nutrition plans and the skills to build healthy habits that aligned with their fitness goals.

Celena also became a Corrective Exercise Specialist, which equipped her with the knowledge to become an expert in human movement to help clients reduce the risk of injuries by helping them move and feel better. Through her certifications, Celena gained the knowledge and skills necessary to help clients improve their physical fitness and overall well-being, and she now uses her expertise to help others achieve their health goals.

Celena’s approach is different than most fitness programs: “As a fitness and wellness professional, I believe in treating the whole person. This means that I take a holistic approach and work with clients to create smart goals, considering not just their physical health but also their mental, emotional and social well-being."

She continues, "I believe that everyone is unique and that a one-size-fits-all approach to health and fitness simply doesn't work. That's why I take the time to understand each client's individual goals, challenges and preferences before developing a personalized plan that addresses their specific needs. Whether it's through exercise, nutrition, stress management or other lifestyle factors, I work with clients to help them achieve optimal health and wellness in all areas of their lives. I believe that by treating the whole person, I can help clients achieve long-term, sustainable results and live their best lives.”

2PiFit (360 PI and the “whole” self-approach) officially an LLC in 2017, separates itself from the competition through corrective exercise by offering personalized exercise plans that address the root causes of physical limitations, helping clients achieve optimal physical performance, reduce the risk of injury and improve overall health and well-being. 

Corrective exercise is a type of exercise that focuses on improving movement patterns and addressing muscular imbalances. It involves identifying any areas of the body that are not functioning optimally and developing a customized exercise plan to correct those issues. This approach to fitness and well-being can make all the difference because it can help individuals overcome pain, reduce the risk of injury and improve overall physical performance.

By addressing muscular imbalances and improving movement patterns, individuals can experience improved mobility, flexibility and strength. This can lead to better posture, reduced back pain and increased athletic performance. Corrective exercise can also help individuals recover from injuries and prevent future injuries by strengthening the muscles that support the injured area. By improving movement patterns, individuals can reduce stress on their joints and prevent wear and tear, leading to a better quality of life. They may also experience improved body awareness and confidence in their abilities.

“In my work as a Corrective Exercise Specialist, I have seen firsthand how this approach to fitness and well-being can transform lives," Celena says. "By addressing the root causes of physical limitations and developing a personalized exercise plan to address them, individuals can achieve significant improvements in their overall health and well-being. By focusing on the whole person and addressing any physical limitations, we can help individuals achieve their full potential and live their best lives.”

Ultimately, Celena's goal is to educate, inspire and empower the clients at 2PiFit to build healthy habits and achieve lasting results to feel and look their best. She strives to ensure that each of her clients is equipped with the necessary tools and resources to maintain a healthy and sustainable lifestyle going forward.
