Corey Critell

CEO & Owner

Fitness changed my life and it can do the same for you. I played sports growing up, but struggled with my weight. During my teenage years I decided to take my fitness more serious with a personal workout regimen and monitoring the foods I was eating. Little did I know that would turn out to be one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Because of the impact fitness has left on me, I have committed my life to helping other people do the same thing. At PHIT, we are more than just a gym. We are a center of insipiration for people looking for a gym experience where they feel welcomed and appreciated.

Araksi Critell

Personal Trainer & Digital Media Manager

Health and fitness has always been a huge part of my life. I became a nurse because I wanted to help people lead healthier lives. When the pandemic hit, it became more apparent how much taking care of our bodies really matters. After opening in October 2020, I knew I wanted to inspire our community to take care of themselves from inside out so that they don’t end up in a hospital with predisposed illnesses. How we treat our body will ultimately reward us for years to come. 

Aside from working out, I love to travel, cook and spend quality time with my family.

Christina Thomas

Head Trainer

I recently transitioned from a 12-year retail career to becoming a Personal Trainer in the fitness industry. Holding certifications as an ISSA certified personal trainer, ISSA certified nutrition coach, and a certified Zumba instructor, I bring a diverse skill set to my new profession. Originally from Brooklyn, NYC, I now reside in Atlanta, where I started my fitness journey in 2020 during the lockdown by doing outdoor drills in the park with my husband. A health scare in early 2021 emphasized the importance of nutrition, fueling my passion to help others overcome similar challenges. I firmly believe that fitness should be enjoyable to maintain consistency and strive to create fun yet effective workouts for my clients.
