John Wilfert has had many years of experience in the health, wellness, coaching, and business development and management fields. Prior to being a successful business entrepreneur and helping manage and consult for business, John got a lot of his ability to lead and coach people when he was a very successful college basketball coach for several colleges/universities. John attended Washington State University, Pullman where he earned his Bachelor’s of Science in Physical Education and his Masters of Education in Athletic/Sport Administration. John performed out of the classroom as well having played for the WSU PAC-10 basketball team. John went on to become the Student Director of Activities for Northeastern College where he oversaw and developed many programs while designing and building a new 8-million-dollar state of the art Community Event Center, that housed, activities, concerts, shows, and athletic competitions for the local community. He was the lead fundraising and development director for the Event Center, while acting as the Director of Corporate Fundraising and Marketing for the college. He developed programs to build community relations and increase revenue to the Event Center, every year he was there.

John later went on to serve as the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Chairman at Odessa College. There, John had a long list of responsibilities and accomplishments that helped shape his career and really exemplifies his dedication to his craft and team development. During his time at Odessa College, John was responsible for having revamped “The Fitness Center” with new equipment ($400,000), raised over $900,000 in one year for a capital project “ET 130” Dick and Amelia Saulsbury Community Conference Room, cultivated a Donor to Donate Golf Driving Range to the college ($450,000 Tax write-off), and raised additional funds for different projects for the college. He also oversaw multiple national championships in both men’s and women’s athletics, with numerous other national-level accomplishments. After his term at Odessa College, John remained in Odessa and become the President/CEO of the Odessa YMCA. There he created Partnership in the community while directing a full and part-time staff of over 175, and a growing budget of $4 Million. During his career he established his own Life Skills and Fitness-Health Coaching/Counseling business, helping individuals and companies develop healthier ways of living and advancing their professional careers.

In 2011, John went on to open Smoothie Factory franchises, and after 7+ years he now has grown to own 4 stores in 2 states.

BeckyPersonelTrainerBecky Wesoloski

Becky Wesoloski is originally from Green Bay, WI and moved to Tucson 4 years ago.  Growing up in Wisconsin, hockey was her entire life.  Beck and her younger brother both played competitively all year round which kept her parents on the go constantly.  Becky also coached a younger girls team.  During the off season, she worked with multiple trainers and coaches in performance training gyms to stay on top of her game. Eventually, she switched over to working with and training horses which lead her to a degree in veterinary technology that she used for a while before getting back into the fitness world.   

When Becky moved to Tucson, she started working out with a personal trainer again and realized how much she missed being in the gym, so she decided she wanted to make a career out of it.  She worked a small local gym, where she met friend and mentor Jamie, and was able to branch out on her own and start her business when he opened Start a Movement Personal Training.

Becky has been a personal trainer for 2.5 years and has been fortunate to have had a few great mentors and experience many aspects of the fitness industry including pole fitness, silks, lyra, CrossFit, yoga, TRX, Tough Mudder, sports performance, functional movement training, nutrition, corrective exercise, and stretch therapy.  Recently, she also became a brand ambassador for Smoothie Factory and SF Nation.
