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 Dull

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.

Cat Williams

Personal Trainer

I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer who focuses on community building through physical strength and mindfulness. At Virginia Commonwealth University, I received a B.S. degree in Exercise Science. My passion for coaching women stemmed from my own fitness journey of participating in track and field along with my experiences in the weight room.

I meet my clients where they are and build them up. My clients are pushed to always master the fundamentals first. Strength training is my focal point because the confidence built under a barbell translates into every aspect of life. I’m so grateful to take part in influencing women to look past the aesthetics of fitness and lean towards becoming strong inside and out.

Outside of the gym, books and my cat typically keep me company. I’ve also recently picked up yoga and cycling!

Personal Trainer - Alex Laurel

Alex Laurel

Personal Trainer

Hey there, my name is Alex. I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

I started my fitness journey in the gym when I was in high school when my coach for Cross Country had told me that lifting would help me get faster. Yet, it wasn’t until I was in college that I had gone fully into lifting. I started to see myself hit numbers I didn’t think I would while also seeing my body change for the better so that led me to getting certified as a personal trainer. I have learned a lot since I started my journey but there is still much to learn and that excites me.

I want to inspire and help others get to where they want to be. I’ll put in 100% of my effort to help you as much as I can toward being a part of achieving your goals.
