Jodi Watkins is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Health Coach, and Nutrition Coach. She specializes in Mindset Development/Holistic Wellness, Time Management/Productivity, Self Care/Habit Transformations, Proper Strength Training for any goal, and is a Nutrition Strategist for Sports Conditioning and Weight Management.
Jodi grew up in a small town called Fernandina Beach, FL and learned a lot about life growing up. She used her pain at that time and turned it into a passion for basketball. Her journey in the Exercise Science field began in 1997 at Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville, FL. However, life took over and she went in a different direction serving in the U.S. Air Force working on C-130 aircraft.
She began a journey like no other during the latter part of her career and found herself separating from the Air Force as a Medical Laboratory Technician. She wanted to help people. While many doors closed to her goal, the path she was meant to take was later revealed as she learned to let go of pride and unforgiveness in order to truly lead her company and those around her. She had to learn how to heal from the inside out. She now mentors and speaks to groups based on things she has encountered in life. She has been blessed enough to work with children of all ages and mentor youth on issues they face daily. She also has become a life coach to those facing depression, PTSD, and who just simply feel stuck. Her faith keeps her going and has truly made her the person she is today. She allows her faith to lead her everyday and keeps God and her family first.
We can't force life. We can't force anything. All we can do is work from within and allow ourselves to truly heal from our pasts. Jodi has now found herself exactly where she was meant to be and has the honor of leading her team on a mission like no other. Our journeys are endless; they are also completely worth the ride when we learn how to take them where they are meant to go.
Kayli Yip is an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer and Rehabilitative Therapy Student in Missouri. She specialized in metabolic conditioning and strength training.
Kayli's passion for fitness developed when she decided to join the Marine Corp Officer Program. She had not valued exercise to that point until she discovered how incredibly life-changing it was. She began to challenge herself to run faster, work harder, and build longer endurance to be at the expected fitness level of the military.
Just a short time ago, Kayli proclaims she never stepped foot in a gym and only ran short distances a few times a year. She never would have imagined how dramatically she would progress. She now runs half marathons and is able to do 10 pull-ups! The accountability and motivation from other fitness enthusiasts and instructors helped her in her endeavors. Their passion for helping her reach her goals allowed her to want to help others as well.
Kayli understands just how crucial it is to have a great support system. Her journey inspired her to become a Certified Personal Trainer and be the source of encouragement for others. She recognizes that not everyone has access to or is comfortable with using advanced equipment, so she primarily designs programs that focus on bodyweight training with basic equipment. Her goal is to show others that anyone can benefit from adopting fitness into their lifestyle and that their bodies are far more capable than they think (something we have all had to learn). Kayli is eager to help this company guide others in their own rewarding journeys and help them recognize and overcome their perceived limites, which is where she believes the true value of exercise really lies.
Kayli states that after connecting with Jodi and realizing how many of the company's values aligned with her own, she knew joining 2BEpic was not an opportunity she would want to miss. She says she particularly admire the personal approach that the company takes for each of the customers and is excited to take part in promoting the unique mission of 2BEpic and the vision Jodi had in 2017, when she began the company.
Tabitha is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Health Coach, and Nutrition Specialist who specializes in weight loss, strength training, and nutrition. She was
born and raised in Tampa, Florida (currently living in sunny Arizona), but left home in 1997 when she joined the Air Force. She served 10 years (combined active and reserve) before fully separating from the military. It was during her break between active and reserve duty that her passion for fitness began. She says the first time she stepped foot into a fitness center, she was 22 years old. This is where her passion in fitness began.
Why she belongs here:
Over the duration of the last 20+ years, Tabitha has been fortunate enough to rise from her own setbacks and grow not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. No shift of this magnitude is pretty, but she strongly owns it now and uses it as a platform to solidify her intentions for the future. Through life lessons, proper education, and quality mentorship, one of her greatest dreams has become a reality.
Tabitha says that fitness is a journey with multiple working components, all of which require self-love, nurture, flexibility, and patience. She promises to encourage, guide, support and educate those who come here as they transform from the inside out! She is excited and honored to be on this journey with our customers as they work towards their goals!!
