Our Staff


HG Fitness was established in August of 2010. My goal was for there to be a place where people of all ages, gender, shape, size and ability level could come and enjoy getting healthy. I also wanted to bring the community together to help support local charities by hosting dance fitness fundraisers. Over the last 5 years HG has helped dozens of local organizations through the generosity and dedication of its members. Getting fit while helping others and being around great people is what HG is all about. 



About HG Fitness

HG Fitness


There is much more than meets the eye when it comes to keeping HG going and this can be attributed to our excellent staff. The staff takes care of everything from moving furniture before and after classes to coming up with new choreography and stage performance and instruction. We love each and every one of them!
