Shea Wilkins, CPT
Shea is 33 years old, a mom of two boys, and I’ve been a certified personal trainer through FITOUR for 3 years. Sports and athletics have always been a huge part of my life and a passion of mine. In high school I was all conference in basketball and track as well as making the all state team in several events. I later went on to play volleyball at Surry community college where we made it to nationals. Since then I have continued to work out on my own and have really found a love for free weights and high intensity interval training, which are two staples in the workouts that I create for my clients. What drives me is motivating and pushing people of all levels reach their physical goals, especially busy moms like myself. I see the potential in my clients and I want them to see it in themselves.
