Olympic Gold Medalists

Olympian personal training

The 1996 Olympics brought the United States the Magnificent 7, the women’s gymnastics team that won the Gold!  Two of the Olympians were from right here in Cincinnati.  Amanda Borden and Jaycie Phelps both relied on Sensible Fitness for the strength, conditioning, and nutrition.  1996 was a great year for both these two local athletes, and their trainer (Doug, our owner), as he won Mr. Ohio that year too!  Birds of a feather flock together.
