He earned his CPA at the age of 23 and has eight years of experience working in both public and private accounting.

In 2003, Russ launched his www.russyeager.com website and has helped thousands of people all over the world lose body fat, get stronger, healthier, and increase energy for family, friends, and business. In 2006, Russ decided to combine his passion for fitness and his business background to create an exclusive one-on-one personal training studio in Atlanta, GA. This vision became a reality when Russ teamed up with Fitness Together, the world leader in personal training, and opened Fitness Together in December 2006.

In just over 1 year Russ expanded to a second location and now has what he calls a "Dream Team" of fitness coaches ready to serve and motivate individuals looking to live longer, look better, and feel amazing!

Isaac Shin, FT Nutritional Coach

FT Dunwoody Fitness and Nutrition Coach

All my life, I have always had an enormous passion for giving back and helping others. This trait is what ultimately helped me decide to pursue a degree in Exercise Science as well as obtain my certification for Personal Training. I personally believe that exercise is the best medicine available, and my ultimate goal is to share my passion with others and make exercise more than just “working out”, I want to help make it a lifestyle. I truly believe that helping others is my calling in life and it is extremely gratifying to be in a position in which I have the ability to empower and enable others. To me, there is no better measure of happiness and success than to see others achieve personal goals and development due to my own help and guidance. Whether you are looking for weight management, muscle gain, strength, functionality, or overall health and wellness, together we can achieve and exceed your goals.

Kiara Townsell, FT Nutritional Coach

FT Dunwoody Fitness and Nutrition Coach

I'm Kiara!  I was born in Philly and raised in Savannah, before moving to Atlanta last November (2017).  I've been active my whole life.  I played volleyball and ran track all throughout my schooling up until college.  Once I got to college, I literally stopped engaging in any type of physical activity, simply because I had no reason to....or so I thought until I realized I couldn't run down a block without getting winded.  I was still thin, but severely out of shape. I begin lifting weights with a Navy friend and immediately fell in love with the challenge......and the results!

That love caused me to change my major after Freshman year to Health Science at Armstrong State University, where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Human Performance & Fitness Management.  I later became a certified personal trainer through ISSA (International Sports Science Association) and a certified Level 1 track coach through USATF.

I have a passion for helping my clients reach their goals and living a healthier lifestyle through creative and challenging workouts.  Training youth athletes and helping them become better at their game is also a huge passion of mine.

Fitness IS my life, and has SAVED my life.  It is only right that I share the joy it has given me with others!  This is no job, this is my passion!

Matthew Lawrence, CPT, Nutritional Coach

FT Dunwoody Fitness and Nutrition Coach

“Matthew’s athletic journey started in middle school when he went mountain biking with his best friend. “I was never a physically gifted or coordinated kid, but the thrill of cycling was enough to get me moving and active. Cycling introduced me to the benefits of an athletic lifestyle and I continue to do my best to keep up the momentum.” remembers Matthew.

Matthew never planned on going into the health industry until a series of injuries changed his perspective. After losing a significant amount of weight through the same practices Matthew now shares with his clients, he left a Mechanical Engineering degree path to follow his own path as a personal trainer. Matthew now enjoys applying what he has learned from his own experiences to help his clients, whether it’s helping to rehab an injury or giving a great and exhilarating workout!

Julie Brannan, FT Nutritional Coach

FT Dunwoody Fitness and Nutrition Coach

Julie gets what it’s like to be a Fitness Together client; that’s exactly how she started. She joined Fitness Together as a client in 2014. At that time, she worked at State Farm Insurance as a manager leading teams responsible for corporate competitive intelligence, customer experience, and monitoring employee experience. She's also had her own consulting firm and was previously director of strategic planning/business development at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. She left corporate America after a successful 20-year leadership career to devote more time to caring for her family and raising her children.

She gets it. She understands crazy schedules. She’s walked in your shoes. Climbing the corporate ladder, enduring long commutes to work, raising two active teens with busy schedules, caring for the family dog, spending times with friends and extended family, and still carving out time to improve ourselves. It’s not easy, but it’s always worth it. As a client at Fitness Together, Julie lost more than 20 pounds by developing a consistent fitness routine through the encouragement and motivation of the awesome trainers and creating a healthy lifestyle for herself outside the gym.

She’s been a trainer at Fitness Together since 2017. Julie is a Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified Health Coach through the American Council on Exercise (ACE). She also holds a bachelors of arts degree in business administration from Illinois Wesleyan University. Additionally, she is a Bod E Talk health coach where she leads online 12-week programs for clients across the country to help people become their own health, nutrition, and fitness experts.

Julie is passionate to help each of you create the healthiest version of yourself. She brings enthusiasm and knowledge to challenge and encourage you to get results. Whether it’s your first day back in a gym after a long absence or if you’re looking for someone to push you to do more than you’d do on your own, Julie will make sure you get a great workout and experience every time.
