As a personal trainer, my goal is to not only help anybody strengthen the body, but also allow the mind and soul a moment of peace. Everybody, no matter who they are, go through heartache and hurt that is incomparable to others. I want to open their eyes to the emotional and mental benefits that abound when taking the time to work on you, for you. I’ve learned first-hand how turning to self-work in the darkest of times can introduce stability and security in all aspects of life. With a CPT certification from NASM, my wish is to create an everlasting feeling of self love and accomplishment within any person.
Chastity has been an athlete for majority of her life, a personal trainer for over 7 years and graduated from Rutgers University with a focus on Psychology. This combination allowed her to gain a great deal of knowledge and understanding of the human body and mind as a whole. Her foundation began with yoga starting at the age of four. She moved on to gymnastics, competitive cheerleading, dance, capoeira, track, and bodybuilding. According to Chastity, there are benefits to all types of training, but the best way to truly maximize your body is to make sure to balance it out by practicing different forms. Her training style ranges from power lifting to pilates barre, and everything in between; and believes that the strongest muscle in your body is only as strong as your mind. Her quote to live by: “whether you believe you can or you can’t, you're right.” Her favorite hobby is hand-standing everywhere and her preferred means of cardio is dancing.
Elizabeth has been practicing yoga for the last 10 years, having received her 200-hour certification in Multi Style Yoga and 20-hour certification in Yin Yoga in 2021. She is also a certified Holy Fire Reiki practitioner in Levels 1 & 2.

In the past I have worked with many different types of people with much success. I have combined my knowledge of fitness and nutrition to move forward in an ever changing industry. I am always learning and educating myself to be better. My passion for both of these health-conscious ways of life began at a young age and they’ve stayed prevalent with me throughout the years, even before I decided to pursue them as a profession. It’s led me in many directions in order to guide clients to combine fitness and nutrition in order to ensure a positive, disciplined and nourishing way of life. One’s diet and physical activity are dependent upon one another, and my desire to work with people to make that a reality is my utmost goal. I am detail oriented and very focused in what I do and injury prevention is at the top of the list when working with clients. My personal life is spent with my husband, Anthony and our 3 children who are now all grown and on their own. I also have a wonderful circle of friends who are supportive and loving. I just started playing pickleball as a new hobby. Let's see where that goes!! A fun fact about me is I am secretly competitive and love a challenge.
I have been involved with training my whole life. Majority of my family has been engulfed into fitness and I am passionate about sharing my knowledge I have gained throughout life with others. I want to help people get better mentally, emotionally, and physically. I have learned a great deal of information about exercise science and have hopes to continue my education to physical therapy. I really enjoy working and connecting with others and hope to make each person I train the best version of themselves as possible.

Fitness for me is more than just a hobby it’s a lifestyle! I’ve been passionate about fitness since my first day in the gym back in 2012! Since then, I've done extensive research on learning new movements which led me to obtaining my bachelors degree in exercise science and many different certifications! I love to motivate and encourage others to always give it their all! Using a combination of many different techniques I’ve learned over the years, will be implemented to help ensure a fun, high energy, individualized, workout is completed!
