Hunter Covelski

Certified Personal Trainer & Pn1 Coach

I’m Hunter C. – Trainer & Nutrition Coach at Success Fitness.  As a kid, I was very overweight.  At 12 years old I weighed 270 pounds.  I was in poor health, and had no energy or confidence to do the things I wanted to do.  I started working out but at first, I wasn’t losing any weight.

I received some birthday money when I turned 13, and I used it to buy a college level textbook on weight lifting.  From that moment, I fell in love with learning about nutrition, weight training, cardiovascular training, and all things health and fitness!

As I continued my journey, I got stronger, gained confidence in the gym, and began to lose weight!  It wasn’t a quick or easy process, and I made my fair share of mistakes, but over the next 4 years I lost over 100 pounds!  Then, at age 16, weighing in at 170lbs, I competed in my first Natural Bodybuilding Show!

But that’s only part of the story… 

After dropping 100 pounds, I still felt fat in my body.  I struggled with binge eating and digestive issues.  I went on to compete again a year later, only to face more dis-ease in my body; mental health issues, more digestive issues… I was sick more often than not, and tried fasting to relieve my digestive distress.  


Let’s pause for a moment here… because I still love the world of competing!  But my passion lies in helping people discover what their body is capable of, and learning to safely push their limits, but to do so with proactive awareness of what it takes to reverse from the extremes of competing in a healthy and sustainable way.

My Coaching Career

My path to wellness was another long one, and I’m happy to tell the rest of the story if you want to hear it – I’d love to connect (contact information below), but let’s get into me as a trainer and what types of people I LOVE to help!

EDUCATION

I am a Certified Personal Trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, a Pn1 Coach, and EXOS Certified in Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Framework. 

LOOKING AHEAD

One shared quality of good trainers is that they are constant students of their craft! I am currently pursuing advanced education as a Licensed Functional Nutritionist.

COMPETITORS

Whether you’re considering competing for the first time, a returning competitor who wants to beat their previous performance, or if you’re post-contest and need help finding balance… I would love to help!  Read more about our Elite Coaching services here…

MY SERVICES

I offer private training both in person and online, but I also love to do online coaching; for nutrition, training, or both.  It depends on your needs, but if you are a motivated person who just needs some direction and accountability, coaching may be the right fit for you!

I have had the biggest impact helping…

Moms that want to lose weight and are fed up with the crash diet approach to weight loss. I help women get past the fad/crash diets and the feeling that they’re never going to be able to “get rid of this belly fat”, “have a strong core because I had a C-section”, “lose weight”, “have time to workout”, “get my diet right”, etc…. These are all things I’ve heard over and over in my career.  But I am here to tell, actually to PROMISE you, that with the proper program for your specific body, lifestyle, and fitness level, we ABSOLUTELY CAN get you to your best-ever shape!

I understand the uncomfortable feeling of going into the gym and wanting to lose some weight, but not knowing what to do or where to start. So I strive to make the gym a safe and nonjudgmental place to better ourselves together! I want my clients to have fun during every part of their journey to their best self and to feel comfortable in the private environment that Success provides.  I also strive to educate my clients so they can carry their fitness skills with them for a lifetime!

STRONG & DETERMINED WOMEN

Drop body fat and feel youthful again without the destructive cycle of yo-yo diets and endless hours in the gym!  Learn what WORKS, execute, and live a stronger, healthier life!

GOAL MINDED INDIVIDUALS

Enjoy a passionate, dynamic, and health-centered approach to body transformation!  Get the body functioning inside and out to achieve an athlete-level physique!

NOT AFRAID OF THE WORK

You can hire the best trainer in the world – but if you’re not willing to do the work outside of your private sessions, you will not see the results you desire!  If you are serious about reaching your goals, ready to listen and learn, and willing to do the work necessary to CRUSH your goals… then we will make a great team!

BE THERE FOR YOUR FAMILY

Do you have kids or grandkids that you want to be an example to?  Do you want to play sports with them, run with them, get down and play on the floor with them, have FUN with them??  I love helping individuals (especially mom’s) who are motivated by their love for family to stay strong and active!

So if it’s time to make a change, and you’re tired of trying to find that magic pill, I’d love to meet you!

When I’m not in the gym with clients or doing my own workouts, I love spending time with my wife, Caitlin! We also enjoy volunteering together at our church. If I’m not with Caitlin, at church, or working out, you can likely find me digging into my current course curriculum, building programs for clients, or keeping up with the latest research in fitness and nutrition.
