Alecia’s passion for sports and fitness began at an early age. She participated in athletics throughout high school and continued with a commitment to fitness after that.
Alecia started kettlebell workouts in 2011 because she wanted to add strength to her daily routine. She was tired of simply feeling “weak”, but traditional weight training wasn’t appealing. After getting certified to teach kettlebells in April 2013, the opportunity to purchase the kettlebell studio was presented to her. Alecia bought the studio on October 1, 2013, and was able to make her passion her “job”.
With the closing of Reefuel in August 2020, this provided a situation to grow the kettlebell studio and add a sister studio, Studio B! Alecia is excited to continue providing a place for people to come and get effective workouts that keep them coming back for more! She has amazing instructors whose priority is to provide top notch cycling, yoga or kettlebell classes each and every class!

Born and raised in the Decorah area, Annette’s fondness for fitness came after her second child was born. It progressed from walking with a stroller to step aerobics to running half-marathons. As years passed, the push for strength training became a hot topic in the fitness world, and what better way to get strength and cardio training simultaneously than with kettlebells.
Annette previously owned and trained at Rejuvenation Kettlebell studio and since holds kettlebell certifications in HKC, RKC, KBI I and KBI II methods of training. She also has studied the Essentials of Elite Performance with ZHealth Performance Solutions. Along with participating in B.Fit classes and trying to motivate and push her B.Fit attendees, Annette enjoys walking, spinning, yoga, biking, golfing, hiking and volunteering. Her biggest joy arrived this spring, which is her first grandchild, Duke. She is married to Eric and has two adult children, Cody and Madison.
Alex joined B. Fit Studio in 2018 and became certified by NETA a year and a half later and has been an instructor since June 2020. Although she has tried many different forms of exercise, it was only after she started at B. Fit that she discovered her true love for fitness. She loves that it combines strength, cardio, and endurance all in a quick 45 min workout. Her favorite move is the snatch and she loves motivating others to push through hard workouts. During her free time, you’ll find her on the trail (either biking or walking with her kids), crafting, using power tools, or binge watching the entire Schitt’s Creek series.
