We are excited to announce one of the newest additions to the Reign Coaching Team, Codey Nelson!
His great character, willingness to learn new things, and passion to be a part of a community (Reign's strongest asset, community.) is what drew us to him. We can't wait for everyone to meet him soon.
He's a Personal Trainer and lives the lifestyle!
You'll see him in the next couple months assisting with classes, working out in classes, and just around the gym getting to know our community.
In an effort to get to know him a little better, we sent him over a quick mini-interview series of questions to answer for the Reign Fam to read.
Here is Codey!
Name: Codey Nelson
Occupation: Personal Trainer
1. Tell us a little about yourself?
I was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. (The locals call it Fort Liquordale, you got to love a beach city and spring breakers.)
I moved to Arkansas when I was in high school and it was a culture shock for sure. My parents were always into fitness and my mom owned a gym when I was college.
That when I first started personal training.
I've been married to my wife Janzen for seven years. She loves yoga and paddle boarding.
We have a dog and a cat.
2. What made you want to coach, lead, and be a part of the Reign Community?
I love to help people change in a positive way.
It makes me happy when someone reaches a goal and they're excited for days about their achievements. Knowing that I helped them do that is very satisfying.
Reign fitness has the same love for fitness that I do and to help people. It is awesome to work in a place with the same goals that you have.

I would have to go with Pizza!
I do love some chocolate and strawberry ice cream for desserts.
The two complement each other so well.
