A personal trainer can be just what you need to hold you accountable, create new and fun workouts for you, and help you achieve your goals.
Meet Diane Wells
I moved to this area in November of 2015 after I retired from a Chicago suburban police department. I’m a mom, I’ve got a twenty-two year old son who lives in Seattle. In my free time, I enjoy working out, reading, kayaking, and fishing. I initially got into fitness when I decided, at the age of 27, that I wanted to be a police officer. I thought “well, I better get myself in-shape” and it was a challenge. At the time, I smoked – so I had to quit smoking and I had to start running and I had never run. But once I got through the initial hurdle and got through the police academy , it was just a matter of wanting and needing to maintain some level of fitness for my job. Through the years, what I’ve realized that exercise is a great stress reliever. I started looking forward to it, and enjoying it. It’s just a part of my routine, like people get up and brush their teeth, I get up, brush my teeth and come to the gym. It’s not so much a, “oh my gosh I have to go to the gym” it’s “Ok, it’s what I do” so it has made it way easier. I think people who can make it just a part of their routine, will find it easier too. Setting aside a certain time every day will take a lot of thinking and concern out of it. My biggest tip would be don’t think of it as a chore, but something you are doing for yourself. It will get you to the point where your daily living routine comes easier because you’re stronger, can do more, and feel better. So, just try to find a consistent time slot that’s dedicated to working out and it’ll make it so much easier than trying to find time to fit it in every day.
Meet Gessi Anderson
Hi, my name is Gessi Anderson and I am a Physical Therapist Assistant and the Director of Rehab at a nursing home. I live in Henry with my husband and beautiful daughter, who is my world.

Meet CJ Ray
Hi my name is CJ! I got into fitness about 5 years ago when I decided I wasn’t happy with my body. Working out has helped me manage stress and helps keep me in a very positive mood. I’ve lived in many different places but Lacon has always been home. I love the friendly and supportive environment here at LFT and nothing feels better than seeing people achieve their goals. I am so glad to be a part of the LFT team and look forward to working with everyone in the gym!
