Demetrius Parker

Personal Trainer

D here,  I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist through the American Council of Exercise. 

I didn’t foresee myself becoming a fitness professional as I was average, at best, while playing organized sports. I was also pretty scrawny and dealt with depression. 

My sophomore year of  High School I was introduced to the weight room, I didn’t know it then, but my life changed from that day on. It not only transformed my body but as well as my mind, it taught me patience and how to overcome challenges. 

Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to have mentors with a lifespan of experience in Personal Training bless me with their knowledge. 

With that, I take a holistic approach to coaching, leading you to your physical goals, helping you make a mental shift and giving you the tools to make exercise a part of your life. 

Whether at your consultation, on the training floor or in passing, I hope to leave a positive impact on your views of ReDefine and fitness in general.

Ashlee Dulle

Personal Trainer

Hey I’m Ashlee! I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the American Council of Exercise and a Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA. I have a bachelors of science in Exercise Science from VCU which is where I learned the importance of exercise as medicine.

For fourteen years of my life I was coached as a part of a team and then I went out on my own and realized how challenging and overwhelming it can be to hold yourself accountable to all of the awesome goals you have. I decided that I wanted to pursue Exercise Science so that I can help people, myself included, achieve the goals they set out and find new ones along the way.

In 2018 I came across powerlifting and fell in love with discovering the powerful connection of mind and body, especially when it comes to testing your limits. My goal as a coach is to teach my community how incredible our bodies are, how impactful our minds are and the amazing things you can do when the two are connected.

Ben Anderson

Personal Trainer

I have a bachelors of science in Kinesiology as well as being a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) by the NSCA.  I first began training as a means to help people get stronger and achieve goals they didn’t think they could. Now I can’t imagine doing anything else.

As a former division 1 student-athlete I have been coached and mentored by some of the best coaches and leaders in the business.  Through my journey my coaching philosophy has evolved in certain ways, but always contains certain fundamental truths as follows:  

  1. Fitness is for everyone.  Not everyone comes to a coach with the right mindset, but the right coach can help anyone develop that mindset.
  2. Fitness, as with everything worth doing, requires discipline and resilience.  Anyone can thrive when motivated, it takes fortitude to develop the discipline for the times you aren’t motivated.
  3. If you show up and work hard for me, I will do the same for you.  Coaching is built on trust.  You trust me, and I’ll trust you.
  4. Fitness should be fun!  It’s going to be different for everyone and that’s ok.  A good coach will help you find the things you most enjoy about it and that’s what makes your results last in the long-run.

My goal with my coaching is to lead and inspire people to become the best version of themselves possible both physically and mentally.

Jared Harding

Personal Trainer

I’m Jared. Some call me J-Man, J-Rod, and from my days as a baseball player, King Kong. Born in Richmond, I graduated from Midlothian High School in 2008. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science from Old Dominion University and I am finishing up my Master’s Degree in Health and Human Performance through the University of the Southwest. I have been an ACSM certified personal trainer since 2012, which has given me the ability to meet and build awesome relationships with many different people, as well as help them change their lives by meeting and maintaining their health and wellness goals.

From 2013 to 2018, I spent my time training in the Virginia Beach and Norfolk area, recently moving back home in December of 2018. I love all sports, especially baseball. I played baseball for 16 years and have a great knowledge base for helping those who are looking to increase strength, endurance, agility, and stamina in sports that require torque, hip movements, and lower and upper body flexibility and strength.
My training experience also revolves around those who need help with balance and flexibility, two common areas that, as we all become older, need to make sure are kept in check. I’m always willing to answer any questions and help in any way possible. The reason I love the fitness and health industry is because everyone can benefit from a helping hand throughout life, and when given the chance to be that person who can make a difference, I will be more than willing to help the person in need.
