MEET THE TEAM
Tabitha Johnson

Owner & Coach

Hello! I am the proud owner of this amazing boutique gym. I am so thankful for this amazing and incredible team at Phyt who share the same passion of making an impact in the community.

I have been passionate about health and wellness for over 15 years and have always known I wanted to use my passion to serve others. In 2014 my first gym was opened!

When I am not on the mats coaching or working out I love to spend time with my daughter Avery (16), being outside being active in any way, loving on my pup Maggie (pictured here), crunching numbers (I also write mortgages), traveling or boating! Summer is my favorite season and pizza is my favorite food.

Not only have I been able to play a role in transforming lives, Phyt Phyzique has changed my life. I have a family here that is irreplaceable.

One of my favorite quotes: “The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.” -Tony Robbins

Nate Best

Lead Coach

For over fifteen years, I have enjoyed being a health and fitness professional. I began my studies at GVSU earning a Bachelors in Clinical Exercise Science, and went on to further my education at Western Michigan University achieving a Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology. Today, I now offer current professional certifications in – ACSM Exercise Physiologist, Precision Nutrition Level 1, and TRX.

Here at Phyt Phyzique, I love to focus on functional movement to connect exercises in the gym with movements in day to day life. My in-depth experience includes working with a wide range of clientele – such as athletes (at all levels), post heart attack patients, paraplegic and general weight loss clients.

In my spare time I love being outside hiking, disc golfing and exploring nature with my fiance Liz and two sons Quill (2) and Landon (10).

Jordyn Price

Coach

I have always had a passion for health and fitness, and for the past 4 years I have been a fitness professional. Since a very young age I knew that I wanted to pursue a career that allowed me to help others.

I was born and raised in Arizona where I attended Mesa Community College. I married my high school sweetheart and we’ve been together for ten years – and have two awesome pups! When I’m not breaking a sweat at the gym I love traveling to new places, going on hikes, wakeboarding, or soaking up the sun on a boat or at the beach!

Jessie DeWent

Coach

Hello! I have been coaching in the fitness industry for over 6 years now. Motivating and challenging people to do their best and have fun with fitness is a passion of mine!

I began coaching after graduating from Grand Valley State University with a degree in Exercise Science – 2014. After college, I went on to receive my Group Exercise and Personal Trainer Certifications and in 2019 I received a certification in Precision Nutrition Level 1.

I am not only a coach and a wife, but I’m a new mother! I have been married to my best friend for seven years now and we recently welcomed a baby girl (Harper) in November 2019. We both enjoy working out and staying active and you can find us having friendly competition when we exercise. When we are not working out at Phyt Phyzique, you can find us running together, going to the beach, camping/backpacking, participating in Spartan Races, traveling, watching movies, spending time with family and friends and creating new memories with Harper!

A couple other fun facts about me, I have a twin sister, I love dogs and I am a devoted fan of the show The Walking Dead. We’ve only missed one episode (we were on vacation) in all the past 10 years it has been on.

For the past 4 years I have been coaching HIIT workouts, I love the challenge it brings with it! HIIT allows the biggest calorie burn in the shortest amount of time. The best workouts are the ones that challenge you in every way possible which is why Metabolic Conditioning is my favorite form of training at Phyt Phyzique.

My favorite quote is “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”. Get ready to get out of your comfort zone and create a new, stronger, more confident you! 

Linda Douglas

Coach

I’m 48 yrs old and a life-long resident of Grand Haven.  My love of physical fitness came at the age of 33 when I was diagnosed with a 95% blockage in my coronary artery and had to have a stent placed in it.

Attending group fitness classes became a huge part of my life, and it wasn’t long before I was asked to begin teaching some! It’s history from there…
I have been a nationally certified group instructor for 5 yrs now with an additional Ace Nutrition Specialist certification.  I’m also certified in The Fundamentals of Structural Assessment for the body.

I have 2 amazing sons and a grand baby. Summer is my favorite season and I enjoy anything that involves being in the sun or on the water! In my spare time I am usually working out or teaching myself Spanish.  I love any kind of workout that builds muscle strength – especially in the upper body! Kettlebells, dumbbells, and TRX straps are my jam!

Breanna Williams

Coach

My passion for health and wellness has been present from a young age but a new fire was lit under me after I had a life threatening spinal injury at the age of 17. After being told by my surgeon the only reasonable explanation for my full recovery was due to adequate muscle mass supporting my spine it made me realize I needed my health and wellness for so many reasons than I could have ever even imagined.

I graduated in 2018 with a degree in Kinesiology and Health Promotion at Michigan State University. I then attended Grand Valley State University for graduate studies in occupational therapy. I love occupational therapy because it promotes independence in people’s lives and helps them get back to their preferred activities (like going to the gym)!

I believe your health needs to be attended to physically, mentally, and spiritually to help you reach your fullest potential. I love being a part of Phyt Phyzique because it is filled with high-spirited individuals and not only do you get in a good sweat but you feel part of an amazing community!

Outside of the gym you can find me hiking with my fiancé (Parker) and French Bulldog (Kona), running (sign me up for any race!), brewing my own Kombucha, camping, skiing, or really doing anything outside!

One of my favorite quotes: “Be such a beautiful soul that people crave your vibes”. Be the energy you want to see in the world!

Sarah Harken

Coach

Hi! I’m Sarah, a Food Freedom, Self Worth, & Emotionality Coach.

Sustainable health and wellness goes much deeper than diet & exercise; this is where my unique expertise lies. After graduating from Grand Valley State University in 2017 I enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I received my first Health Coaching Certification. Though the school taught me the depths of what a clean, wholesome diet actually looks like, it’s main focus was the “Primary Food Circle,” which includes joy, spirituality, creativity, finances, career, education, physical activity, home cooking, home environment, relationships, & social life. It is said that if each category of your Primary Food Circle is wholesome, healthy living becomes easy and like second nature! While I somewhat agree, this still only scratches the surface.

The question was, how does a person actually achieve deep fulfillment in those areas? I knew deep down that in order to support my clients and myself in obtaining a nourishing lifestyle forever, I needed to take my knowledge a step further. Struggling on and off with emotional and binge eating and anxiety (even after being certified as a Health Coach!) showed me that something was missing. I then enrolled in a program called Hungry For Happiness to earn my Food Freedom Coaching Certification. This education gave me exactly what I was searching for: the recipe to heal the deep seated emotional ailments I was facing, and how to help others do the same.

In the midst of all this, I earned my Yoga Teacher (200) certification at Yoga Fever in Grand Rapids, MI, which really helped me tie physical, mental, & emotional wellness all together. In order to achieve sustainable health & happiness one must find a mind/body/soul harmony. You can’t have one without the other.

I’m super passionate about my mission to make this world a healthier, blissful, more uplifting, wholesome, and loving place, which is why I’m here 🙂

While I’m not at Phyt teaching classes or leading a workshop, I’m usually either creating a virtual course, or working on my podcast, Her Vibe Is Pretty! Outside of work I love learning from my mentors & coaches, diving deeper into my own depths, taking care of my plant babies, being in nature, traveling (especially to Europe & Colorado!), cooking & baking pure, healthy meals & snacks, crafting, and spending time with my boyfriend, mom, sister, and dad.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Leslie Roberts

Yoga Instructor

I am a lover of art, yoga, and outdoor adventures. An art teacher by day and an artist and yogi by night. I have been independently practicing yoga for nearly ten years, and have used yoga as my go to practice to maintain my health and wellness. I suffer from chronic pain that at times is debilitating.

Yoga has also been an amazing emotional and spiritual outlet for myself. My goal as a yoga instructor is to bring a holistic approach to each class.  I do this by helping students learn the fundamentals of yoga, build functional movement skills and develop neuroplasticity through gratitude work and meditation.  In turn, I hope students will find peace, experience joy, and learn to become consistent in a practice that can help them on many different levels.

It doesn’t matter one’s experience level or flexibility level. All that matters is a willingness to show up to your mat in order to grow and allow yourself to learn how to listen to your body, your emotions, and your mind.
