Mackenzie Davidson

General Manager
M.S. Nutrition Education
NASM-CPT
CrossFit Level 1
I received my Master of Science in Nutrition Education, and have developed my passion for working with individuals in both the nutrition and fitness fields. Through my studies I have developed knowledge in both the art and science of nutrition, learning about not only what we need to feel healthier, but how to create the behavior changes necessary through theory-based interventions and motivational interviewing methods. I received my level one certification to coach Cross Fit in 2015 and have been avidly developing my athletic training for over 5 years, coaching for 2-3. When I am not in the gym I enjoy getting outside to go hiking, biking, and being on the water. I believe that living an overall healthier lifestyle requires not only daily exercise and physical activity, but adequate nutrition, hydration, stress management, and sleep habits. It is my hope to help others develop these facets of health in order to live an overall better life.

Sam Brown

Fitness Director
M.E. Guidance and Counseling
NSCA - Strength & Conditioning Specialist
After losing 50 pounds, I found myself with more passion, energy, and goals, I felt ready to take on the world. Helping others do the same has fueled that passion even more. Pairing my formal education background in Counseling with wellness and strength training brings a full-body experience to my clients. I believe health is more than the number on the scale or the number of reps we can complete, but rather an improved quality life in all areas. By strengthening both body and mind, I aim to not only bring my clients tangible results, but uncover a better version of the person than they ever imagined they could be. I am also continually sharpening my skills by obtaining the CSCS certification and completing advanced levels of study in the area of lower back health with specific outcomes in those with low back pain, joint discomfort, hip dysfunction, and more. I believe these added tools will help promote longevity and well-being to all clients.

Exercise Specialist
ACSM Certified Personal Trainer
2nd Dan Blackbelt Certification
FMS Certified

I've been participating in sports since I was 5 years old and love everything about fitness. I went to MTTI for their personal training program and loved it! Outside of LifeStart I also teach TaeKwonDo and kickboxing. Obtaining a 2nd Degree Black Belt in TaeKwonDo has taught me to be confident and to never give up, no matter what. My goals for the future are to go back to school and travel to different counties.

LifeStories

Dee C.
Now, I cannot imagine letting a week go by without working out. I didn't think I could feel this good!
My Lifestart gym opened in March of 2019 and has been a life changer for me. I have complex-PTSD and working out is essential for my mental health. I hadn't worked out in a long time due to lack of funds and time, so I was not in a good place mentally when I first met with Meredith, our General Manager and Personal Trainer.

Meredith has helped me more than she could know. I have physical goals and am working out regularly. My body feels good and has changed so much. She is now helping me "climb my mountain". In October of this year, I run the Tough Mudder 5K! My first run ever! I'm also down 15 pounds from when I started! Now, I cannot imagine letting a week go by without working out. I didn't think I could feel this good!

The hard work has paid off, I feel better than I have in years! Cheers to Lifestart, it certainly feels like my life's start!
