Alex Wilson | Master Trainer


When I was 15, I was overweight and needed a change. I started eating better and getting on the treadmill every day. Not because anyone told me to, I just knew I needed to. After about 6 months I started my Jiu Jitsu journey. Shortly after I got into MMA and Kali, and fell in love with combat sports. I went from 200lbs+ down to 145lbs. After a few competitions, I got up to 185lbs through strength and conditioning. I started getting more into fitness and wanted to help people like me get ready for competitions. I went out and got my NASM certification and stay on top of the current latest fitness changes so that I can pass on that knowledge to my clients and give them the best outcomes possible. I have been enjoying training my clients and helping them achieve their goals ever since. Are you ready for me to help you achieve your goals?

Tyler Hebert | Certified Personal Trainer

Hi, my name is Tyler Hebert. I am a certified personal trainer focusing on functional fitness, and weight management with resistance training. My passion for fitness started in the process of losing over 70 pounds and struggling with self-image issues. In my journey, I have dabbled in many different forms of exercise from fencing to Shotokan Karate. My passion flourished when I started to live a healthier lifestyle, in addition to incorporating gymnastic routines and resistance training. The freedom, mobility, and strength I gained also helped to skyrocket my internal and external outlook on life. I now want to pass on the knowledge I have to help others to gain peace of mind and freedom as we age. Whatever your goal may be, we can go beyond with a smile on our faces!

Mary Crow | Certified Personal Trainer

Hi, my name is Mary. I am a Certified Personal Trainer. I have an early background in gymnastics, from age 5-16 years old I trained and also competed for many of those years. Early in adulthood, I became a wife and eventually a mother of 5 children. I know through my own journey of raising kids that it’s easy to lose sight of your own health and well-being goals. While always being “active” throughout my life I was never really into strength training as an adult. I felt weak and lost my sense of identity. After overcoming multiple health issues and an ACL injury I finally took an approach I never did before, putting my health first. I have found a passion for exercise and strength training. Results don’t happen overnight, they are earned by hard work, and the process is progressive. All this takes commitment. Having first-hand knowledge of the journey has given me the passion to share it with others. I am excited for this chapter in my life, so come train with me, and let’s reach some goals!

Katelyn Rovig | Certified Personal Trainer

Hello, my name is Katelyn. Growing up I was always involved in sports and activities. I discovered my love and passion for weightlifting and competing in bikini bodybuilding competitions. I am a nationally qualified bikini bodybuilder and I’m working toward my pro card. Working out has provided me with not only physical and mental growth but also personal growth. I believe you receive the most benefits from exercise when you challenge yourself to improve. It’s important to try to stay mindful of your mental health in relation to your exercise program. Getting your body moving daily is a great way to help improve mental and physical well-being. I love being able to share my passion for working out with others as well as love seeing the growth that it provides them. My goal as your trainer is to help you find what type of exercises you enjoy in order to help you maximize your progress and achieve your wellness goals.

Lilian Bouza | Certified Personal Trainer

Hi my name is Lilian Bouza, I started my fitness journey when I was diagnosed with an ED and underlying injuries due to lack of muscle and improper diet. Through this journey, I came to understand the importance of a customized resistance training program and proper nutrition and the benefits it provided for my basketball career and overall health.

My lifestyle transformation inspired me to pursue my goal of becoming a Certified Personal Trainer, so I may help others improve their relationship with food and fitness. I strive to help people become the most confident and happiest version of themselves. I have worked with a diverse client list, ranging from kids to older adults. I specialize in resistance training, interval training, and sports performance training. However, I can work with any goal and fitness level.

After playing basketball for 15 years and making my way to D1 athletics, I now have a passion for training athletes to better their performance. I’m here to help individuals reach their goals and I’m ready to help you smash yours!

Robert Hudson | Certified Personal Trainer

Hello everyone! My name is Robbie. I’m really excited to work with you. I have always been an active person and an athlete. I’ve played Rugby, and been an avid skier for over 10 years. I love the outdoors, and like most of us here in Northern Nevada I try to explore all the beauty we all have in our backyard. I have always had a passion for helping people become the best versions of themselves. I knew by becoming a personal trainer I would have the opportunity to use my passion, and knowledge to do just that. On my fitness journey, I’ve been a powerlifter working to push my musculoskeletal system to the limits so that I could perform at the highest level possible for strength. I have also had to work through different injuries. The knowledge, and patience I was able to gain through the different recovery processes has given me the ability to help clients through their recovery process. I know how to use my education/my life experience to help hold people accountable to the right process without guesswork. Being mentally and physically healthy is a day-by-day process that many people struggle with by themselves. Give me the opportunity to earn your trust one step at a time, and allow me to custom build a health and exercise program that you can feel confident about being committed to. One of my daily goals is to meet as many new members of Parkway Athletic Club as I can and offer some of my time to help members with their workout programs. If I don’t come to you first please feel free to say hello to me, so we can help each other on our fitness journeys!
