FIT & NU™ was founded by sistah-sisters, Joslyn and Brittney Rae Reese in March of 2015, just two years after embarking on a lifechanging backpacking trip through Central America. While traveling, the sister's were on individual pursuits to create healthy habits of their own. Joslyn's love for nutrition began with juicing. As Head NUtrition Coach, Joslyn takes a (w)holistic approach by exploring simple ways on how to heal one's relationship with food. Head FITness Coach, Brittney Rae remixed her love for dance and Functional FITness to create high-energy, body and behavior changing workouts that build strength and empower the mind to believe "you CAN do this".

Gabriel Watkins - Powerhouse Personal Training


Gabriel Watkins Powerhouse Personal Training

 PowerHouse PT is on a mission to  “Change How You Train”.  Our mission is to fundamentally alter the way everyone trains by implementing fundamental corrective exercise. We pair that with  a traditional strength and conditioning, and emphasizing the importance of recovery through dietary balance, to 'Change How You Train' in the gym and outside of it.  We begin with corrective movement patterns. That way we can prepare and ensure the body’s ability to do what it does best, maintain balance internally. To get something you’ve never had you have to do something you’ve never done, and that’s why we like to use as many non-traditional strength and conditioning exercises as we can.

Consequently, putting these things together with a balanced, recovery focused diet, anyone can become their own PowerHouse. We are also the only gym in Colorado solely dedicated to the precise training of the individual. That gives us a distinct advantage in helping you achieve your health and fitness goals. We treat every body like our own with training, with respect to all things, and with love.

Start your journey today by signing up for free virtual training now through February 22, 2022 and become your own  "PowerHouse"
