Corey Critell

Corey Critell couldn’t be more excited to help the Jacksonville community learn how to live a fit and healthy lifestyle!

COREY CRITELL Picture Personal Trainer

He has been in the industry for 12 years and has worked in every capacity starting as a wellness coach at the YMCA to now being able to work with facilities like Asana Wellness to bring elite personal training to all those in need of some assistance.

Corey’s initial inspiration came from his mother who lived most of her life as an overweight smoker. He watched her lose over 100lbs all while putting down her cigarettes at the same time.

Corey got his start into fitness as a young kid playing sports but lived the first half of his life as an overweight kid constantly getting picked on. At the age of 14 he decided he had enough and was no longer going to live that way. By the time Corey graduated high school, his hard work was rewarded with a track and field scholarship as a decathlete!

The older he got Corey’s passion for fitness continued to grow to the point where he needed something else to strive for after he was finished with sports. That led Corey to pursue his passion for bodybuilding in which he has competed in 8 shows including a pro card in the WNBF as well as a first place finish in his first pro show. All that said to say, Corey knew when he was a teenager that if his Mom could do this and he could do this then he needed to figure out how to put himself in a position to help others understand they can do it too!

Dr. Christina Williamson

Christina Williamson Picture Personal TrainerI’ve lost 136 lbs, without surgery, fad diets or starving myself. Let me TEACH you how!

I changed my mind and was subsequently able to change my body.

There are many reasons why people choose to exercise. Whether you want to improve mobility, reduce health risk, or look and feel better, I can help you achieve your goals. I attended North Carolina A&T where I earned my Doctorate of Philosophy in Transformational Leadership. I have also earned my certification as a Schwinn Cycle Instructor!
