Julian Kaufman, Owner
Julian Kaufman earned his B.A. degree in Health and Exercise Science from Furman
University. He went on to earn a master's degree from Covenant College in
Curriculum and Instruction. Julian is certified through the National Strength
and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning
Specialist (CSCS). The NSCA (www.nsca.com) is the world's leading authority on
strength, conditioning, and fitness. The NSCA distinguishes itself from the
hundreds of other certifying organizations because its foundation is rooted in
scientifically reliable research. The NSCA bridges the gap between the lab
scientist and the fitness practitioner. Julian also holds certification from USA
Track and Field.
Julian has worked in several diverse health-related fields in Chattanooga since
1993. His technical experience includes working alongside exercise scientists in
human performance (vital capacity, stress test, heart rate, blood pressure, body
composition, flexibility), exercise physiology (max VO2, O2 deficit, hydrostatic
weighing, anaerobic threshold), biomechanics and motor development. Currently
Julian serves as a strength and conditioning coach, wellness teacher, fitness
instructor, football coach and track coach at the Baylor School.
Julian's personal philosophy is centered on the idea that health is holistic in
its nature. Spiritual, intellectual, emotional, relational and physical health
should be viewed in an integrated manner. As an individual deals with the
physical aspects of their health, they should also be careful to care for the
other, more complex components of their overall health. As the physical is
worked on and developed, it must focus on substance versus image. This substance
is whole health with the goal of preventing disease, increasing potential for
longevity, and improving and maintaining quality of life.

Alex Enter, Trainer/Asst. Manager
As a teenager, Alex made a common but dangerous mistake: starving herself to be
“healthy.” She eventually dropped to 82lbs at 5’8 tall. She felt terrible. Something had to change.
Alex turned to trainers whose guidance taught her how food fuels the body with proper nutrition and she began to gain strength and energy; learning not only how to exercise, but to actually enjoy it!
Alex became a personal trainer so that she could help others learn what it means to
actually be healthy. Nothing makes her happier than helping clients find their limits and break through them, sharing that amazing feeling when we realize that we’re capable of so much more than we think.
Alex believes in total mind and body fitness. Her approach combines strength training, cardiovascular endurance, and yoga postures. Alex holds a 200HR Yoga Vinyasa Certification.
When she’s not training clients, Alex enjoys hiking, CrossFit, weightlifting, running, and yoga!
