Sarah Addeo

Sarah Addeo’s fitness career began in New York City after she was selected for a scholarship with the world-renowned dance company Alvin Ailey. She taught for many years at Crunch Fitness and the NY Health Club where Sarah discovered that her love for dance and passion for fitness could be combined to create dynamic one-of-a-kind workouts. Eventually, Sarah’s dance work moved her to Los Angeles where she was approached to develop, manage and teach for an elite fitness studio in West Hollywood. While teaching and training in LA, Sarah developed several of her signature classes such as Choreo Weights and The Workout, which quickly became top ranked classes in the city. Sarah’s innovative classes and unique teaching style attracted a devoted clientele including celebrities such as Lara Flynn Boyle, Jennifer Grey, Dyan Cannon, and Sheryl Lee to name a few.

In 1996 Sarah decided to move to Milwaukee where she opened the city’s very first fitness studio in Fox Point, WI called In Motion Fitness. The studio was the first to offer Spinning, Mat Pilates, Barre, Cardio Kickboxing and other cutting edge fitness classes. After eight years of double digit growth and success Sarah made one of her hardest decisions to date… she closed her studio to focus on having a family. Over the next 13 years Sarah would continue to build one of the most successful group fitness followings in the Midwest, and inspired, mentored, and shared her passion with thousands of devoted clients who strived for a healthier lifestyle.

Now with a new chapter of her career unfolding, Sarah and her core team have conceived and developed a visionary concept for today’s fitness industry. Sarah’s vision of multiple studios within one single large studio is coming to life and is phase one of her overall concept. By combining Sarah’s extensive industry knowledge with an innovative way to deliver classes and some of the most talented instructors available, AddeoFit is able to provide their clients with a 360-degree approach to becoming happy, healthy humans.

Kaleigh Atkinson

Awareness of the raw beauty that exudes throughout our world has always been Kaleigh's artistic motivation as a photographer and filmmaker. Finding pure beauty in day to day life and within herself came from a prescription of yoga and meditation. For the past decade, Kaleigh focused on Ashtanga Yoga, but she recently sought change from the traditional style and began studying Ayurveda (an ancient Indian system of medicine) and focusing on a daily meditation practice. The last year of her life has been devoted to traveling the world to learn more about herself and deepening her yoga practice. Living in the spiritual paradise that is Byron Bay, Australia opened Kaleigh's eyes to a new perspective on holistic wellness and the yogic lifestyle. Kaleigh moved from Byron Bay to Bali and the Blue Mountains in Australia to participate in a truly life changing 10 day silent meditation retreat known as Vipassana. Finalizing a year of travel and study, Kaleigh visited Mexico to fulfill her 200 hour yoga teacher training. As a teacher, Kaleigh's yogic philosophy will ground you in the present moment of spirit & body. You'll sweat, laugh, grow stronger and more flexible - and simply feel healthier, mentally and physically.

Beth Zenke

Beth's active childhood matured into three sports a year in high school, which turned into a lifelong love for fitness and health. After a serious health scare her freshman year of college, Beth decided to pursue a degree in nutrition. She completed a degree in human biology with an emphasis in nutrition at the University of Wisconsin- Green Bay and a post- baccalaureate internship at Mount Mary College. After passing the registration exam, Beth became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). She then accepted a position at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Milwaukee where she primarily worked in Oncology helping cancer patients during and after treatment. These experiences convinced Beth that healthy eating can fit into anyone's life, but it doesn't look the same for any two people. A healthy lifestyle needs to be tailored to each individual's wants, needs, and beliefs.

Along with her passion for healthful food choices, Beth believes remaining active is crucial to a healthy lifestyle. Beth has completed numerous half marathons. Her daily commitment to fitness is supplemented as often as possible with active, adventurous travel experiences; she's jumped in the water to explore the Great Barrier Reef and hiked the Incan trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, tackled Mount Teide in the Canary Islands, and enjoyed the differing terrain of the Tetons and Yellowstone.

Beth has enjoyed indoor and outdoor cycling for over a decade. After having her first daughter, her workouts moved primarily indoors, which is when she discovered her love for a good cycling class. Building on those experiences, Beth's own classes focus on differing intensities and drills that keep the mind occupied while the legs produce some major power. She believes music can truly motivate a person to push to their full capability and welcomes any and all requests.

Beth and her husband Ryan live in Glendale with their two young daughters: Laura and Anneliese. She enjoys cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Jordan Meyer

Jordan Meyer is a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Jordan attended UW-Oshkosh, where he graduated with a degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion. During his time at UWO, Jordan was a player/coach for the local men’s rugby team, and was quickly charged with team conditioning. However, the team was comprised of college kids and full-time, working men alike, rendering the fitness levels and schedule availability varied dramatically. Jordan loved the challenge and began to appreciate how differently each individual approaches fitness. Jordan went on to work in corporate wellness for Appleton Papers through the Appleton YMCA, which again allowed him to work with a very diverse population. Shortly after moving back to Waukesha, Jordan joined the staff at a large health club, where he was able to further hone his training and teaching skills, while working with clients ranging from age six to 71. Jordan has focused much of his work on youth and teen fitness over the past five years, teaching everything from basic movement to little ones from high-level footwork and strength building with high school athletes. “I love this field and truly enjoy being able to help people reach their goals, fitness-related or not. Every day is different and every person has his or her own needs, and I love that part of what I do. Being able to challenge myself on a daily basis keeps things fun for me. I think it’s important for people to learn how their bodies work and get a basic understanding of how to best take care of them. We’re all in this together!”

Randy Sprenger

Randy started indoor cycling when it first hit Milwaukee. He found it a great way to train in the off-season for mountain bike races, and a solid cardio workout.

I am dedicated to providing the most balanced, nourishing Yoga experience possible.

After one class, back in the saddle, she knew it was her thing! A huge music lover, it was a great way to enjoy all genres of music while getting an amazing work out!

Working full-time and a mom to two beautiful girls, adding fitness and healthy living back in to her life was a great way to manage stress and educate her girls on the importance of a healthy living.

Soon she decided it was time to share her passion with others, during the fall of 2016 she received her Spinning® Instructor certification and began teaching cycle classes. She is also certified in Matrix IC7 Coach by Color and Stages Indoor Cycling. Rachael loves to teach all levels of cyclists, learning why they are riding, what are their goals and how she can help them accomplish them!
