JORDAN ELKINS

Owner, ACE-CPT, Pn1, RYT 500, E-RYT 200, YACEP

Certified Barre and SPINNING Instructor

Founder and owner of Innergy, Jordan teaches all fitness modalities the studio offers. She was born and raised here in the Valley, headed to Connecticut at 18-years-old to play Division 1 ice hockey for Quinnipiac University, moved to Dallas, Texas, for 5 years where she started her fitness career, but eventually all roads led right back home.

Jordan is a certified personal trainer, 500RYT/E-RYT200 Yoga Instructor, certified SPINNING instructor and certified barre instructor. When she’s not in the studio (yes, it happens) Jordan enjoys spending time learning new things, paddle boarding, boating the rivers and doing anything outdoors with her boyfriend, family, friends and her dog Moose!

KIM MUNRO

Kim was born in Whitehorse, Canada, and raised in Alaska. Kim loves to connect with people, fostering strong relationships and building new ones. She currently teaches spinning at Innergy and is a certified personal trainer and barre teacher! She enjoys learning and working to strengthen her fitness and coaching knowledge to be the best teacher she can.

 

Away from the studio you can find Kim spending time with her husband, outside, babysitting, enjoying time with family and friends or slinging coffee and serving sweet treats at her day job.

HALIE MONTANEZ

RYT 200 // Barre Instructor

Halie is a lively and happy person who loves to share her love of barre and yoga! She brings that same happiness and liveliness to each class she teaches. She received her 200RYT in 2012 and since has added over 500 hours of teaching and continued training/education. In 2017 she came across barre and instantly fell in love with it. She received her training that same year and has been teaching ever since.

When she's not teaching you can find her out in the mountains with her husband and dog. Halie feels blessed to be able to share her love of fitness and hopes to sweat with you soon!

ELISE LONG

RYT 200 // Barre Instructor

Certified SPINNING Instructor

 

Whether she has you turning up the tension on the bike in an 8-point plank on your yoga mat, when Elise speaks, you listen. Her classes are one of a kind and her soul is just as special.

Elise was born and raised here in the Valley. When she's not teaching yoga or cycling you can find her working at her family's store, or chasing her little ninja son or fur babies around outside!

THERESA HODGSON

RYT 200

Theresa started her yoga journey following knee surgery and years of practice motivated her to get her 200 hour Hatha yoga teaching certification from Yoga Yoga in Austin, Texas, her hometown.

Theresa moved to the mountains in 2012 and has been loving Alaska ever since. In addition to yoga, she enjoys everything outdoors. Theresa is also a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant and loves working with people of all ages and abilities, especially kids.

JAMIE CRIPPS

RYT 200 // Barre Instructor

Certified SPINNING Instructor

Jamie has been teaching barre since the fall of 2013. She was originally trained and teaching in Bellingham, WA but has been teaching in Alaska since 2016. She was born and raised in the Valley and recently moved back within minutes of her childhood home with her husband and two young boys. She loves the opportunity she has to stay home with her kids and also loves pouring her heart (and sweat!) into her clients when she teaches and finds great satisfaction in both roles.

 

Jamie is barre obsessed and it shines so strong in her passion for teaching, you cannot not smile when this girl is leading a class. She loves encouraging each person to “make the moves your own." Whether someone needs to modify a movement or needs more of a challenge, the option to choose restore or fullest effort or anything in between.

 

When Jamie isn’t mommying or teaching, she’s likely with her friends or family, preferably playing games or outside with good food and smelling with some sort of combo of fire and essential oils.
