My name is Danya Gagnon and I’m a certified personal trainer specializing in Corrective Exercise through National Academy of Sports Medicine. I’m also a competitive powerlifter in USPA currently competing in the 67.5kg weight class. I focus on weight loss, pre- and post- natal fitness, muscle building, strength, conditioning, as well as flexibility and mobility training to take your performance to the next level. Through my education over the last 4 years, it has gave me the experience, confidence, and passion to help individuals strive to exceed their expectations. It is my goal to empower and give you the tools needed to reach your full potential. It is incredibly fulfilling to see an individual both succeed and gain a love for the process. I hope to be a part of yours!

I am Alex Gourlay, a trainer here at Titan Up Athletics. I moved to New Bern from Long Island, NY to teach elementary PE. I have my B.S. in Physical Education (K-12) from SUNY Cortland and recently earned my M.S. in Exercise Science and Health Promotion with a concentration in Performance Enhancement and Injury Prevention from California University of Pennsylvania. My certifications include NASM PES and NASE-CSS. I’m currently studying for the NSCA-CSCS. Growing up I played a lot of soccer and volleyball which I still enjoy on the recreation side of competition. I began powerlifting in 2015 and competed at USAPL Raw Nationals in 2017 in Orlando, Florida. I love to share my knowledge and experiences with others in order to help them find ways to train for performance and improve quality of life. My goal is to impart the best science-based training in ways that unite the strength, health, and fitness communities. Each of us speak a common language in the gym and that is self improvement, so whatever it is you do get after it!
