In business for over 17 years, Chikara Kickboxing & Total Fitness's owner Kristie Byer has been helping gym-goers lose weight, build strength, and gain confidence. As a medical exercise specialist, she's certified in non-competitive kickboxing, TRX training, Pilates, personal training, and OsteoFit . This allows her to help guests of any skill level get the most out of each workout.
Her boutique gym offers a friendly and supportive community focused on breaking a sweat. She equips the private fitness studio with plenty of machines and free weights for individual use. But for extra motivation, Kristie offers group exercise classes, where students can push their limits with support from their peers. When weather permits, boot camp classes take to the outdoors to flip giant tires, or swing battle rope on the surrounding farm.
