Personal Trainer SiobhanSiobhan (Shivon) Bilecki

Fitness has always been an integral part of Siobhan's life from a very young age.  As the years passed she also found that, besides her passion for a healthy lifestyle, she also loved people and had a strong desire to help others, so she decided to put it all together and become a health and Fitness Coach.  In 2002, she received a BS in Physical Education at IPEF University in Cordoba, Argentina and also got certified as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor.  Since then she has acquired experience and knowledge by working with a broad spectrum of people which enables her to design unique and effective programs for her clients.  
"As a personal trainer my goal is to motivate, inspire, and educate about the benefits of exercising and living a healthy lifestyle.  I believe health and fitness is more than just our appearance; it affects all areas of our lives and it's the foundation of everything we do.  I believe anyone can achieve realistic goals and I'm here to provide encouragement, confidence, and motivation to help you get there!" 

Personal-Trainer-JimJim Wagner NSCA-CPT



Motivated by my faith and desire for all to experience a life of wellness, I began managing and training in western Maryland fitness facilities. In 1990 I moved to Hilton Head Island where I began acquiring additional credentials to further my career as a Certified Personal Trainer (ICS, ACE, NSCA). Having been in the health and wellness industry for over twenty years, I have had the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of areas, from a wellness coordinator with Lockheed Martin, to a natural bodybuilding competitor. Fitness and nutrition have always been a major part of my life. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to share this experience with others.

Tim Holland, N.D. 
Naturopathic Doctor of Medicine
(C) 813.546.1794

A traditional naturopath specializes in wellness. That is to say, teaching clients how applying natural lifestyle approaches can act to facilitate the body’s own natural healing and health building potential. An emphasis is placed upon personal responsibility for health. A naturopath can make significant contributions to an individual’s health - in the short-term and the long term – by acting as a guide and source of information. Helping people learn how to take better care of themselves is an important part of naturopathy.
