Lindsey has a passion for helping beginners find their way, particularly to the barbell. She ditched her stressful office job to follow her passion for strength training and conditioning here at Union Fitness. As a certified personal trainer and powerlifting coach, she uses an approach that corrects faulty movement patterns and improves stability before moving on to tackling the big three lifts. She also loves teaching our group training classes, particularly the U.Fit Bootcamp class where she gets to challenge people with bodyweight movements and high-intensity intervals. In her free time, Lindsey competes as a powerlifter and spends as much time outside hiking and kayaking as she can (when the Pittsburgh weather allows it).
Curtis was born and raised in a small town on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. His passion for health and fitness began at a young age through his love of Baseball and Soccer. It was through those sports that he was introduced to training and strength & conditioning. He carried this passion through college as he pursued his Bachelor of Science through Salisbury University in the spring of 2014 where he received his degree in Exercise Science and Athletic Coaching. He is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength & Conditioning Association. Curtis’ experience in the health and fitness industry includes personal training, physical therapy and rehabilitation, as well as athletic strength and conditioning. He now continues that passion through powerlifting, where he has achieved an Elite total in multiple classes. Through his experiences within the sport, he is able to gain a deeper understanding of the areas of program design, form and technique, mobility, and proper recovery, in order to further benefit clients and members. As an employee of Union Fitness, Curtis’ mission is to help each individual achieve their personal goals through his passion, knowledge, dedication, and encouragement.
