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 14 years.

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

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.

Kaitlyn Pando, BS

I have loved being active since I was a child. I grew up playing many different sports and continued my softball career at Ball State University where I got my degree in Exercise Science. I truly believe that fitness is not a one-size-fits-all-all, and I chose this field to help others see how they can incorporate fitness into their lives. Helping members progress and make healthy changes in their lives is my favorite part of the job.

Alex Soller, MS, CSCS

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. I played football for four years at Valpo 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.

Levi Haltom, MS, CSCS

Training Philosophy: I think goals no matter how big or small should never be easy. They should force you to work extremely hard and develop new habits. When you can step out of your comfort zone and be uncomfortable, you get to see what you’re made of and who you truly are. My goal is always to guide you along the way no matter how big or small your goals are using proven methods that work.

Ever since I was a kid, I have always enjoyed sports. I first began weightlifting in middle school to help with my athletic performance. During High School after being a 5-sport athlete and losing 120lbs. That’s when I really fell in love with weightlifting/sports performance and solidified what I wanted to do in life. After graduating high school, I got into Powerlifting and attended Indiana State University. Where I graduated in 2017 with my Master of Science degree in Physical Education and Coaching, and in 2015 with my Undergraduate degree in Exercise Science.  During my career so far, I have had the privilege to work with a wide variety of people from college, high school, and youth athletes to people looking to lose weight, gain strength, regain independence, and come back stronger after an injury. Whatever your goals are I can get you there.
