PL PT - Mark
Mark Haubrich

I love all exercises. I like fitness because it allows mw to balance my life and gives me lea way for the occasional splurge. It will also help me reach my goal of living to be 100 years old. Exercising is a very important pat of my life and I enjoy sharing my knowledge of exercise and nutrition with others. I use free weights and weight machines to create fun and effective personal training programs for clients of all ages and fitness levels. I develop customized programs with client's goals and lifestyle in mind. I love dogs, especially my Australian Shepard, Maizy. I'm always in the mood for German or Italian food. In my free time, I love to travel, eat at good restaurants, watch sports and movies, go to the beach and coach soccer.

I’m a Dallas native but I frequently travel to Thailand where my parents are from. I discovered my passion for strength training and overall health about a decade ago. I see fitness and wellbeing as an athletic endeavor and spiritual outlet. As a personal trainer I aspire to tailor customized workout plans and to each individual lifestyle and personal goals. Strength/Conditioning and mobility are my main focus. Besides Strength training I enjoy skiing and try to go once a year in Whitefish Montana. I openly embrace new challenges and experiences. Favorite Quote: “This lifestyle is a marathon, not a sprint.

My full-time job is a Design Engineer designing high speed microprocessors - - the brains in all computers - embedded in phones, TVs, satellites, cars etc. With a busy lifestyle, fitness is my escape & my passion. I got interested in fitness ever since 3rd grade when I came 2nd in my first race ever! I have been participating in 5Ks & 10Ks, attend-ed a lot of Nike boot camps, Camp Gladiator sessions & Zumbathons. Three years ago, I completed my 1st Spartan Race, which is an obstacle course race at West Point Military Academy, NY. I trained hard for that at YMCA Plano! My dream is to take a 3-day hike of the Grand Canyon! Other than working out, I am a mom of 2 kids, 1 dog, 1 cat and a fish. It’s a full house! My husband inspires me every day. He is also an avid workout junkie and has participated in many races & fitness events. With my PT Certification through NASM, I can design customized workout programs for clients to suit their fitness level and needs. I am really looking forward to giving back to the community and help train folks who have a busy lifestyle and yet want to make sure they stay healthy & fit just like me.

I was born in Tulsa, OK but I moved here when I was very young so I’m a Texan at heart. My passion is to encourage, motivate and show people how to grow mentally and physically through means of fitness. I love to show people how positive working out can be on your mentality in life. I am heavily involved in Christian youth ministry, and adult ministry as well. I believe that if we are diligent and consistent in the gym it will help us perform better in all things in life. I love to travel, work at coffee shops, and play games like ping pong or pickle ball with my friends.

Hello everyone! My name is Meghan and I live my life to promote the benefits of health and fitness! Working out and staying in shape have ALWAYS been a passion of mine. I grew up playing multiple sports and knew from an early age that I wanted to share that same love and compassion for living a healthy lifestyle with others. I began working in a gym at age 18 and quickly fell in love with weight training along with the knowledge I was obtaining in my undergraduate program, as well as advice from other healthcare professionals. My certification through NASM in combination with my occupational therapy background have taught me how to assess and create a program to exactly what needs my clients may have. I find myself always researching the most recent fitness and nutritional advice to make sure I my client’s lifestyle goals are met. My husband, 3 boys and 2 dogs moved to Texas a little over a year ago and have fallen in love with the DFW area! We love to be physically active together as a family, any outdoor activity, and playing as many sports as we can! We are so looking forward to becoming part of the YMCA fitness family!

I grew up playing competitive sports (Basketball, Baseball, and Football) throughout high school and college, but couldn’t progress because of various injuries. Since I have gone through various injuries myself; I have a lot of knowledge, experience, and empathy when it comes helping others overcome their injuries. I have worked with a wide range of athletes in many different sports helping them achieve their goals including athletes from: SMU, NC-State, Performance Course, and D1 in Allen. I am currently pursuing an associate’s degree in Radiologic Sciences, again, to help people suffering from various injuries. I love helping people and uplifting them! I have a wife, son, and daughter on the way and love spending time with them! Some things that I enjoy are watching/playing sports or anything active... preferably with a slice of competition. My teams are the Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas City Chiefs!

LaRonda Williams

Hi Everybody, I’m LaRonda! I was born in Nashville, TN in the 80’s to a bi-racial mom and a 6’9 father. It was always interesting in our household. I enjoy everything fitness. This includes running races, hiking, kayaking, biking, weightlifting, teaching bootcamps and dancing...just to name a few. When I’m not doing any of that, I’m usually at the movies, exploring nature with my soon-to-be grown son, traveling to a beach or volunteering for some charity. Motivated by my own personal fitness journey of overcoming multiple injuries and arthritis limitations, I have dedicated my time helping my family, friends, community and clients put their health first and make fitness fun again!

Hey ya’ll, I’m Vaughn. I was born in the U.S. virgin islands St.Thomas to be exact but at this point I would say I’m more Texan then anything. I found my passion for fitness through competition. I’ve played football, wrestled and competed in jujitsu (2nd place NAGA), amatuer USMTA champ 2011, professional Muay Thai (kickboxing), and professional MMA. I later Coached because I enjoy meeting new people, giving back and working with all ages and levels. I’ve worked with 5 year old beginners to 57 year old experts.

I have been associated with YMCA from 2017. It was also the period when I was struggling with postpartum depression and weight gain. All those factors brought my confidence to zero; I could not stand in front of a mirror without the negative thoughts of what has happened to me. Focus on fitness and single objective of turning things around, helped me improve my life in multiple aspects. I had my share of ups and downs, and as they say no journey is complete without those. I am a mom of 2 kids and 1 dog. My husband is my support system and a source of strength. In my free time, I like to plan fun activities for kids and experiment with cooking in different ways. My purpose is to give back to the community by sharing/connecting my experience with that of others and bringing positive change in lives. Personal Training certification thru NASM enables me to design client specific workout routine keeping their goal and potential at the center of the program.
