Chanelle Neff
Personal Trainer

My name is Chanelle aka Beastmode. Being active and playing sports my whole life, I've always loved fitness. Getting older, I became a mom of 2 boys who are 9 and 10. As most of us moms,  I gained a lot of weight and put myself last. My kids came first and I didnt take time out for myself. In 2014 I contracted Bacterial Meningitis. I was in ICU for 2 weeks and was told I would suffer from a lot of side effects from surviving this rare disease. Including back and neck spasms, extreme fatigue and chronic migraines. They weren't lying. Everyday I was in constant pain. I was referred to many neurologists and pain management doctors. All prescribed medications that didn't help and gave me a list of other problems. Finally I found a neurologist who changed my life. He told me I needed to start being active and change my eating. 

He gave me a challenge in between visits to start planking to help strengthen my lower back to help diminish the pain and spasms. Challenge accepted. I started planking and at first it was a struggle and painful. But in a short time frame it did help with my pain and my spasms lessened. From there I started jumping out of my comfort zone and doing things i haven't done in a very long time. I started running on the treadmill. I completely changed my diet. Magical things started happening because I was consistent. I had hard days and amazing days. No matter what I got it done. Something active!! I found my passion in life. I wanted to be that little voice in peoples head. If I can overcome my obstacles, i can help push others to overcome theirs. Show them their inner strength. I got my CPT certification and have made it my life to help as many people reach their fitness goals as possible.
