FEATURED PERSONAL TRAINER AUTHORS:Emily Hutt (pictured above) has been in health and fitness since 1991. At 30 years old, (with four children) Emily was 33% obese and her family physician informed her that she’d have a heart attack or stroke before she turned fifty. Words were not enough to convince her to change her lifestyle. It took the incident of her father’s stroke and heart attack to shock her into reality. Exercise and healthy eating habits slowly became her new way of life.
In 1996, Emily competed in a competition. She placed first in her division and first in the overall division. Although she considered it a completed goal, she realized that it was not the healthy and balanced way God intended her to live.
Emily personal trains at her fitness studio. She knows her gift is to inspire others to feel better and to have fun while they exercise. Emily holds a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of West Florida, is AEA certified, AAAI/ISMA certified and attends two professional conferences a year to stay informed on new directions in the fitness industry.
Jeff is the owner of No Limits Personal Training, Inc., established in 1996. He is certified through AFAA. Jeff holds a degree in theology from Christian Bible College and Seminary. Living in Illinois, Jeff is married to Jodie and enjoys raising horses. In addition to personal training, Jeff serves as an Elder at the Highland Community Church. His #1 goal as he trains is to come along side his clients like Jesus did for his apostles so that they become fit from the inside out!

*I earned my bachelors in Biochemistry from Nigeria and my masters in Biology from Harvard. However, i am a great passion for fitness and health. I proposed and started a health and fitness ministry for my local church where i will primarily coach and teach the women. We are in the process of building a dedicated room for all things relating to the ministry. I have started to earn certifications in various aspects of what i like. I was on my way to earning the group fitness certification with secular organization until our paths crossed and I switched. The reason for that being that my main goal and focus is to pursue this as a means of evangelism and also to bring health and fitness awareness to the christian world. Having said all this, faithfully fit seems to align with my overall vision and i would like to partner with your company. -Massachusetts
*Hey Donna! Just letting you know that I spoke at the LoveLady Center this morning. The Holy Spirit was so awesome. I felt it when i walked into the building. My message was "A Strong Woman Through The Holy Spirit." There were close to 150 ladies there. The hospital has a total of 400 ladies and 100 children. They are wanting to work with me on starting the fitness program. We will be getting in touch with you hopefully soon to get the first 2 trainers certified. -Alabama
