My name is Becky and I am the gym manager here at Custom Fitness. My ongoing quest to be physically fit and healthy began 20 years ago. Personal weight training and group fitness classes have helped me to continue to reach my goals and given me the support I need to stay focused on the journey. Being healthy and fit is a choice we all have the freedom to make. You just need to make it.
Spinning has been a big part of my life for the past 5 years, and I have seen and felt first-hand the effects of indoor cycling. I was introduced to Spinning in 2012 at Custom Fitness when I was looking for a low impact cardio exercise that would help me in recovering from a knee injury. After Spinning helped me fully recover from my injury, I realized I not only wanted to participate in class, I wanted to become an Instructor–I received my Mad Dogg Spinning Certification in April, 2014. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share my passion for Spinning through teaching. No judgments or expectations will be present in my classes, only a willingness to participate and to have fun! If you’re looking for a butt-kicking workout that increasing your strength and endurance, as well as decreasing your body fat, come on in and join us… I look forward to Spinning with YOU!

I’m excited to share my passion for fitness and wellness as an instructor at Custom Fitness. I’ve always been a physically active person. Growing up I was apart in track and field, ballet, and spending as much time outdoors, partaking in some type of athletics.
Today, I still engage in many road races; I am a natural competitor and enjoy the adrenal rush at these events. I also love a variety of workouts, Spinning, PIYO, Pilates, lifting, Kickboxing. I have always been focused and a determined individual. It takes hard work, dedication, and commitment to reach your goals. I believe that if you truly put your mind to something, you can achieve it. Those things that challenge you only make the reward more satisfying.
I hope I can assist and encourage all those on their personal fitness journey. I look forward to see you in class!

My name is Ali and I am new to the Custom Fitness family. I moved to the area in January 2017 and became a member shortly after in February. I have always been an athlete but my love for fitness came in college during weight training and speed and agility sessions with my college softball and basketball teammates. After graduating, I received coaching positions at local high schools for basketball and field hockey, as well as softball at the local college. The transition from player to coach lead to slacking on my own personal fitness and Custom Fitness has given me the opportunity to get back to work on those goals!
In my spare time I enjoy visiting family and friends back home, as well as exploring my new surroundings, especially golf courses, in Saratoga!
