Wesley became a NASM certified personal trainer after an ACL tear ended her snowboarding career. After the knee injury, a tough surgery with a few complications, and a long rehab, she developed a brand new love for working out and using fitness to heal the body. This new found passion transitioned her career from a professional athlete to a fitness professional.
Wesley grew up between Ohio and Colorado and was put on skis at the age of 4 and found snowboarding at the age of 8. She competed nationally and across the globe for 15 years and was training for the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang until her ACL injury in 2015 put her Olympic dreams on hold. It was right around this time that Wesley met her husband, Thaler. They were both living in Colorado at the time and after her knee surgery he, who is born and raised in Pawcatuck, convinced her to move home to Connecticut with him.
Wesley loves her new home on the East Coast and feels right at home with her fit family at Fitnostics. She found Fitnostics through a friend who recommended the gym when she was looking to rev up her usual fitness routine. Wesley's style of training is influenced greatly by her life in extreme sports. She has a long background in Yoga and Crossfit. Wesley teaches core strength and breath work as the ultimate foundation for strength and fitness. She is currently working on a certification to become a "Pregnancy and Post-Partum Athleticism Coach" to capitalize on her passion for building a strong core through functional movements.
Wesley loves sharing her passion for exercise science with all of her clients and likes to take the time to get to know each and every one of them individually. To her, understanding is the key to success and knowledge is power. She wants everyone to understand their muscles, how they work to create movement within their bodies, why we do the movements we do, and how they can benefit the body!
Joe has been with Fitnostics since 2012, where he startedd as a N.A.S.M. certified instructor. He has always been into fitness and all types of athleticism. Played football, baseball and ran track in high school, breaking a lot of records in the 100m, 200m and long jump. After high school he got into strength training and learning how to bulk up and put on muscle. Once that avenue seemed to be exhausted, he wanted more and wanted to start a career in the fitness industry.
After being with Fitnostics for two years, he started sales and management training. Along the way, learning about people more and more and how to understand what each individual needs mentally, physically and emotionally. Connecting with each client on so many levels is what makes him different from other fitness trainers.
On March 8th 2016, he bought into Fitnostics where he is now in a three way partnership with two other great co-owners. His passion is to help others be the best they can be in the health and fitness field no matter the age or level of fitness they are in. He is always up to date on the latest training techniques and attends “Perform Better” conferences every year, where top trainers and chiropractors lecture and do hands on workshops on the most up and coming information.
Joe’s favorite part of the day is when a client leaves a session knowing that they were better than they were yesterday and thank him for it. High energy and positive thoughts are what drive him to support each and every one of his clients to success.
