From one on one, individualized sessions to small group formats, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’ve worked with a trainer before and are looking to get back into an effective program or you’re brand new to the experience and want to learn proper form along with all the basics, let us show you the difference a true fitness professional can make.
The most personal, impacting, and high quality exercise experiences occur during one on one sessions. From your initial consultation and movement assessment to the moment you finally crush that goal you thought was impossible, the individual attention received during your training is unmatched in any other exercise setting.
With nearly all of the same features and personalized attention of one on one training but at a discounted rate and enjoyed with a friend, duo training is a steal. Scalable and easily modified workouts mean your exercise partner can be on your fitness level or 10 floors above.
Small Group Training combines the individual attention, care, and form correction of 1:1 sessions with the dynamic and energetic atmosphere only found in a group setting. With workouts accommodating 3-8 people per class, you’re never left to endure the WOD alone.
Facet Seven was developed with the intention of creating sustained vitality through the application of movement and nutrition.
Regarding movement, we love the FMS doctrine, “Move well. Move often.” What exactly does it mean to move well? We agree with Kelly Starrett of MobilityWod that there are specific positions and anatomical shapes that the body should be able to get into free of injury and without a major strain. Moving well means you have the movement freedom to:
By combining an initial FMS mobility screen with the goal of achieving the seven movement archetypes listed above, we are able to develop specific, completely unique programs for any ability level while still working towards the shared objective to move well.
We believe that Facet Seven will be the most effective “exercise” program you’ve ever experienced.

Forest became interested in the fitness industry as a result of his own experience as a client. In early 2003, he was diagnosed and successfully treated for colon cancer. He has been in full remission since late 2003, but as a result of his treatment, he became very obese, increasing from 180 to 216 pounds in 6 months. In 2007, he finally decided to see a personal fitness instructor and, after 14 months he had substantially improved. After getting serious about eating a healthy diet along with his exercise routine he began seeing results he had never experienced before. So, with the encouragement of his trainer, he entered in the over age 60 (“masters”) category of the Louisiana Bodybuilding competition, held each year in Lafayette. Except for himself, the over age 60 field was composed of very experienced bodybuilding competitors, all of whom had competed successfully as younger men. He placed second in the 2009 competition and in 2010, he competed again for the Louisiana over age 60 title, this time winning first place. Forest has given up competition for his real passion, which is training on general fitness for working people and retirees. Before working here, he enjoyed working with older clients ranging in age from 40 to late 70’s in Metairie, La. He is most empathetic with clients who are interested in improving their general fitness, physical endurance and functional strength, especially core strength from which all fitness ultimately stems. He is particularly adept at dealing with clients who have specific physical limitations and he designs training routines specifically tailored to those clients’ needs. Forest’s approach has been to emulate his own early experience as a personal fitness client, starting with gradual progression in exercise intensity to assist his clients to achieve their specific fitness goals. He monitors his clients’ metrics by periodically documenting progress in functional strength, agility and endurance as well as by measuring weight control, lean body mass and body measurements. Forest believes that your later life is not the end, it can be the beginning.

Mandy Trichell always hated exercise. HATED it. Years of being the first one pummeled in dodge ball and the last one picked for kickball will do that to a person. She never played team sports in school, never practiced a martial art and could barely tolerate wrestling with her little brother as a kid. She went out of her way to avoid having to do anything physical.
In spring of 2005, at the age of 29, Mandy (very) reluctantly started working out when she realized her sedentary life had caught up with her. With an extra 50 pounds weighing her down, a new job and three children to keep up with, something had to change. Over the next few years, movement became a priority for Mandy. In addition to losing weight and gaining energy, her new passion was directly responsible for resolving several other issues she had been struggling with for years: clinical depression, insomnia, and chronic fatigue. This led her to get more interested in the why and how of fitness. As she learned more and shared more with people who asked, they began asking if she would work with them. This finally led Mandy to becoming a Certified Personal Trainer.
Mandy has now been been training professionally since 2007. She is certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She is also ADAPT L1 (parkour) and MovNat L2 certified, and is the co-founder of Urban Movement. She is devoted to helping people get those benefits and rewards that she loves so much from exercise. Beyond keeping her well, both mentally and physically, she feels it gives her the child-like energy that makes her feel unstoppable. It brings Mandy great joy to share that with other people and to help them reach their goals.

The basis of my mission in the fitness field is to build a trusting relationship with each of my clients, concentrating on the “why” as much as "what" their fitness goals are. Everyone’s goals are unique and personal to them. If we can determine the “why” we can better understand what we need to do to help you with the “what”. It’s the “why” that motivates a person to work towards the “what”.
For almost 20 years I have been helping people become more fit and healthy. Over the last 10 years my scope has expanded to improving the overall quality of life for my clients. This includes fitness, flexibility, nutrition, stress relief and overall helping them to make positive changes to their lifestyle. Getting healthy and happy generally requires people to make some significant changes in their lives. I believe by making incremental changes over time, we can work together to insure that you, not only reach your “what”, and succeed in the "why", but help make sure the change is a permanent one. I believe it is important that we commit to a plan and work together to do everything possible to help make sure you are successful!
I am an ACE certified personal trainer with advanced training in Special Populations and Nutrition. From my years of experience in general fitness to post-rehab for injuries, including hip and knee replacements, I have gained the knowledge and expertise to work with a broad base of clientele. Personally, being the recipient of bi-lateral knee replacements myself, I have the first-hand understanding of the challenges present with joint replacement recovery.
I've chosen to specialize in training “more mature” clients, those over 50 years young, whether they are already active or just beginning their journey to a healthier, more active lifestyle. Whether you’re 50 or 90 years young it is never too late to start living a healthier and more vibrant life. You can be younger next year!
All my clients undergo a detailed assessment to determine current physical condition and to detect any muscular imbalances or limitations. Once we determine the “what” and the “why”, we work together to develop a program that meets those needs and make adjustments as needed. After all, the only thing constant in life is change! Utilizing dynamic functional training, the goal is to improve your overall fitness and mobility. This helps assure that you will be ready for whatever life throws at you!
Why am I personal trainer? I enjoy meeting new people and building new relationships. Working together with each of my clients, teaching them the how and the why, and sharing in their successes is my reward.
