The Joy of Healthy Living

Personal Training With an Emphasis on Mindfulness and Movement

Have you ever met someone for the first time and inevitably your conversation turns to where each of you work and what you do for a living? To be honest, that kind of conversation can usually be chalked up to "small talk" to keep the conversation going until one of you says something that is of particular interest to the other and THEN the conversation becomes more interesting. But every once in a while, the other person's job (or your's) is what makes the conversation really interesting. I can remember a few times in particular when I thought to myself after meeting someone, "Man! They really love their job!" I could hear it in their voice and see their eyes light up when they started talking about their career. That happened to me recently when I met Kalie Bella, owner of Phoenix Health and Fitness in Medina. Kalie's passion for personal training and her new business were apparent within the first couple of minutes of meeting her.

Kalie and her husband, Scott, recently opened the doors to their new personal training, yoga, and nutrition studio in the Signature Square Shopping Plaza last November and to say that she is excited about helping others achieve their fitness and health goals would be a huge understatement. 

"I love it!" she says. "Probably my favorite part about personal training is that I get to work with people from all different backgrounds and experience levels. We have children as young as eight years old and people all the way up to 90 years old. Some people come for weight loss, others for maintenance or strength training and others come simply for their general health." 

Phoenix Health & Fitness helps its clients improve and maintain their health and fitness goals by offering not only personal training but also private yoga sessions with a certified yoga instructor and diet/nutrition counseling.

"Everything is personalized for each individual client," Kalie says. "There's no one-size-fits-all program. We take into account past exercise experience, we work around injuries and we want to know what your goals are so we can work towards those with you."

Your experience at Phoenix Health & Fitness starts with a free consultation where you can talk to a trainer about what your expectations and goals are and tour the newly renovated studio. Your trainer will explain to you all the ways that they will help you achieve your specific health and fitness goals and show you the different packages that are available. Once you have chosen a package, you can begin to book your personal, 45-minute, one-on-one workouts, yoga sessions and nutrition consultations. The journey to transform your mind and body has now begun!

Whatever your reason may be for getting into the studio and working with a personal trainer, Kalie and her staff at Phoenix Health & Fitness have got you covered and want to help you ignite your fire for change. Check out Phoenix Health & Fitness at or stop into the studio at 3725 Medina Rd. to learn more about what they can do to help guide you to a healthier lifestyle through mindfulness and movement.
