Kris Simpson, BS,

Training Philosophy: Define your limits, and I will help you break through them. I look forward to assisting you reach your fitness goals. As a personal trainer, I work with and accommodate any fitness level. I believe that we are all athletes, just at different levels! It's never "hard" just challenging. Let me challenge you to get fit!

I work with anyone looking to CHALLENGE themselves to get stronger, fitter, and achieve a goal. I have been involved in sports since childhood. While at MSU, I accomplished many of my goals as a basketball player.  I finished my college career as the school's all-time leader for points and rebounds. After college, I went to Sweden and played basketball professionally for more than four years. I coached basketball at Michigan Tech University and IUPUI for a combined 14 years.

I transitioned into fitness. My passion for fitness has never wavered. I enjoy investigating the newest fitness trend to make you function better and look your best.

Kris is the instructor of NIFS Go Girl Triathlon Training Program.

Michael Blume,

Training Philosophy: You supply the desire and commitment - I supply the methods, means and motivation.

My role as your personal trainer is to help remove the overwhelming aspects of a fitness regimen so that it becomes an approachable and attainable undertaking. I have extensive experience working with individuals of many different levels of ability, but I specialize in athletic performance and those who want to build upon their athletic edge. If you are looking to get out of your old fitness routine, or want a higher intensity of a workout, I combine my experience with both knowledge in exercise science, as well as a creative approach in general, to develop time efficient and productive high intensities that match your goals and ambitions.

Training Philosophy: Exercise is a highly individualized activity that needs to be altered in order to fit your goals, needs and enjoyment. No matter your current training status, improvements can be made with proper structure. It is never too late to start!

I graduated in May 2013 with a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology from IUPUI by way of my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from Valparaiso University. At Valpo, I played football for four years and interned with the head strength and conditioning coach. I bring the same controlled enthusiasm to your workout that I used each time I stepped into the weight room or football field.My specialty is variety. I have experience with clients from all different fitness backgrounds and levels. I am one of the Athletic Performance coaches for the IUPUI sports teams but also have clients with different ranges of general fitness desires. No matter what you are hoping to achieve, I will guide you in the right direction.
