Meet Your Personal Trainers

Lacey Bertram

I am a Dietetics major and currently a junior.  I am also a BearFit Group Fitness Class instructor. The BearFit classes I teach are Chisel Up and Uppercut which both include weight lifting with endurance. It is a great time that gets your heart rate up! I have taught BearFit classes for a year now and just began personal training after acquiring my personal training certification. My ultimate goal is to have a career as  a sports dietitian.
