Rebecca Hanson

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology from UT Arlington. My love of fitness started when I began my own weight loss journey in 2017 and has since become my lifestyle. I’m very passionate about health and fitness and I love teaching others what I’ve learned and helping them reach their own individual goals.

Jennifer Pope

I’ve always had a passion and love for working out.  After becoming a stay at home mom 17 years ago, I was encouraged to become a personal trainer at our YMCA and have been here ever since. My certification is from The National Council of Sports and Fitness.  As a trainer I aim to encourage people reach their spiritual, mental and physical goals. 

When not at the YMCA I enjoy snow skiing, scuba diving, working with youth at church, watching my son play baseball and spending time with family and friends.

Nikol Sutherland

I was born and raised in Texas with health and fitness being an important part of our family's activities. I danced for over a decade and was on the swim team, tennis team and weightlifting team in high school. Being a mother for over 21 years, I enjoy going on adventures with my kids as well as getting them involved in activities at the Y. Besides having a passion for fitness, I also enjoy being outdoors, music, crafts, scuba diving, playing with fur babies and relaxing with my husband. 

I am currently a group fitness instructor at the Y, teaching BODYPUMP, and working on my certification in Body Combat. I recently received my certification in Personal Training through PTAglobal.
