Meet The Team

Audra

Hi Ladies. I am the founder of The Fit Effect. I never knew what exactly I wanted to do, I started in the fitness industry in 2011 and started Personal Training clients 1 on 1 shortly after that. After working with my first handful of women I knew what I wanted. I wanted to support and empower women physically, mentally, and emotionally to reach their goals. This means coaching and educating them on fitness, helping them create positive body image, building a community of women that could be there for one another, and so much more.

I have had my fair share of struggles when it comes to negative self-image, anxiety, an unhealthy relationship with food, and just an overall feeling of not being good enough. I have walked in your shoes and there are times even now that I still struggle with some of these things, but that’s why what we bring to you at The Fit Effect is so important to me.

I aim to bring you not only results in your physical health, but a whole person transformation so you feel better, treat yourself better, and positively EFFECT those around you. Together we are stronger. See you soon.

If you believe you can, you will. If you think you can’t, you most likely won’t. I believe in the power of the mind and over the last several years have watched Audra transform from an already awesome person, to an even stronger, more confident woman and she has done it by doing exactly what we do for women here at The Fit Effect, and it’s unlike anything in the industry.

I have been in Personal Training for going on 15 years and have worked out for over 20. I grew up in Indiana and at a young age found working out as a way to feel better, build confidence, and push myself to be my best. At the time I didn’t know that’s what was happening, but looking back that’s why I fell in love with it. I remember I would get frustrated or mad about something and feel horrible, go workout for 45-60min and feel like I was on top of the world. When I was young I thought I was working out for all the physical benefits, which were good too, but it was definitely the effect it had on my mind and the way I felt that has had me going after it for the 20 plus years.

Life can get you down, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Stress, negative self talk, and a feeling of I can’t easily sneaks in and steals your confidence and happiness. The great news is that you have what it takes to turn it around.

Working in the industry for almost 15 years and with close to a thousand clients, I know that what we have created here at The Fit Effect will guide our clients and guests to real lifelong transformation. The transformation will not just affect them physically, but just as important, mentally. The thought of I can’t, shifts into I can and I will. Once you believe…. then you can achieve.

 

Daniela

Hey everyone! I’m Daniela. I’m originally from Wisconsin; I moved here to perform at Walt Disney World in 2012. I’ve always been active since a young age, whether dancing, playing sports, or even just running around outside. I feel that carried over into my adult life. Even outside of work, I love to keep moving, running around with my two sweet doggos, and exploring what Florida has to offer with my boyfriend, Jake.

I started my fitness journey in 2015 with first reading the book, The New Rules of Weightlifting for Women, and used the information I learned to teach myself new exercises. I LOVED how strong I felt every time I was in the gym. That feeling continued when I convinced some friends to join me, help them with form on different exercises, and eventually creating and guiding them through a workout routine. I’ve been able to witness the realization of new goals and sense of strength they have, and seeing that “aha!” moment spark their fire always helps re-ignite mine. I have noticed I always leave each experience feeling re-inspired and motivated to reach my own goals.

I want to share that feeling with other women. I want to help empower them and realize they are capable of achieving any goals or dreams they may have. I want to help women establish good habits so they can have long and healthy lives with their friends and family. I want to help turn their motivation into determination. I motivate myself to reach my full potential by helping others realize they can reach theirs.

I’m so excited for this opportunity Audra and Michael have shared with me, and cannot wait to see where this journey takes all of us, together! See you on the gym floor.

 

Lulu

Hi, my name is LuLu and I am the protector of The Fit Effect, well I like to think so. Really I am just a gentle giant that loves your attention, head scratches, and love, unless you are mean to my mom, then I get protective.

I like making people smile and acting silly, as you can tell from my picture. I am also rotten, when mom and dad aren’t looking I like to get on the couch that I know I am not supposed to be on…. just to test their patience.

I also like to play hide and seek, chase, and sometimes get the zoomies which is a lot of fun. I can’t wait to see you in the gym so you can give me all the attention.
