Lonn Iwashita

Fitness Coach - Personal Trainer, Director of Operations Lead Nutrition Coach

Aloha! My name is Lonn Iwashita and I am originally from Honolulu, Hawaii. I recently graduated from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa with a degree in Health and Fitness Promotion as well as received a minor in Exercise Science. I have also obtained my Personal Trainer Certification through the American Council on Exercise (ACE).

    Fitness has always been a part of my life through my involvement in a variety of sports. Through sports, I became passionate about all aspects of health as well as how the human body functions. I would always try to find out new training methods to find competitive gains to overcome any personal weaknesses. I had to find out what type of method was the most beneficial to me. From this I have learned over the years that everyone responds to health differently, both psychologically and physiologically, meaning, that there is not a set health or fitness plan that fits all people.

I want to help guide individuals to reach their specific goals and to be the best version of himself or herself. I believe the best project you’ll ever work on is yourself. Your health is worth the investment and I believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a long and healthy life if they choose. Thank you for allowing me to help you take your will and turn it into a way towards a healthier you.

McKenzie Lersch

Fitness Coach - Personal Trainer - Director of Social Media

Hello! My name is McKenzie Lersch and I am a certified personal trainer with The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Exercise Science from Southwest Minnesota State University in 2019 and am currently going to school at UWRF for my master's in Exercise Physiology.

Growing up I participated in soccer and it was a huge part of my life until I graduated from high school. Needing to find another outlet for my love of being active, I started weight lifting and experimenting in the gym with different ways to challenge myself and stay healthy. Since then, my passion for understanding the science and application of exercise has expanded greatly. I am so thrilled to be able to help people understand the importance of exercise, achieve their goals, and help them live their best life!

In my free time I enjoy hiking, reading, snowboarding, yoga, or basically anything that gets me outdoors in fresh air. Working at Fitness Together I hope to help people reach their personal goals while having fun along the way. Exercise isn’t “one size fits all” and everyone is unique! Finding a plan that is both enjoyable and fits each individual’s needs is an important part of the process.

Hui Tine Hiew

Fitness Coach - Personal Trainer

Hi ! My name is Hiewand I'm from Malaysia. I received my degree of Kinesiology in 2019 with University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire. I was growing up with a basketball sports team when I was in high school until my college life. This is one of the reason that gave me motivation to start working out and become stronger. I started my gym life when I was 15 years old and started to gain my muscle mass because I wanted to be an explosive basketball player. During my college life in Wisconsin, I have great experience in helping with mental disability people in their daily life support to provide treatments and musculoskeletal evaluations when needed. I also participated a program call Cancer Recovery Fitness Program which educate my clients in rehabilitation and recovery exercise. My experience taught me how to maintain a safe, neat, organized environments for every client that I work with. Thus, let's get together with me to be strong together and healthy together!
