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.

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.

Ellie Klarl

Operations Manager

My first time in the gym started like many people: not knowing what to do and ending up on the treadmill for most of the time. I was fortunate enough to have my brother encourage me to venture to the weights and teach me the benefits of strength-training from the beginning. My foundation in fitness began with bodybuilding, leading me to compete in NPC bikini. Fast forward a few years, and I was faced with a health challenge. Overall fitness and functionality took on a whole new meaning for me, and I was challenged to grow in my knowledge and perspective.

I have been a practicing certified personal trainer since 2016, with my most recent certification being in Prenatal and Postpartum Coaching. In my free time, you can find me at a local coffee shop, outside in nature, or in the gym training for my next powerlifting meet.
