What Makes Us Unique?
La Belle Vie or “The Beautiful Life” is exactly what we hope to inspire. We are focused on providing a positive, fun, and encouraging atmosphere for everyone who walks through our doors. It is our goal to provide excellent training while also cultivating the hearts of each student and client.
Our dream is to encourage our students and clients to find the beauty that is present in their lives and in the world around them. We hope to nurture them to love the Lord and praise him through everything that they do. Our desire is to be a light to the world to show others the love of Christ through our dancing.
In our dance programs, students will have the opportunity to learn to minister to others through dance and also use it as a form of worship to God. We want to teach our students that all we do is to glorify God and that we should pursue excellence in everything that we do. It is also our goal to provide a studio free from gossip or conflict where every dancer and client will feel safe and loved on by the teachers, as well as by their heavenly Father.
La Belle Vie’s fitness classes are tailored to achieve physical fitness, cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, and flexibility. Each class is structured to create fast, lasting results while also providing diversity through cardio workouts on the trampoline, sculpting ballet-styled classes to perfect your technique and posture, as well as stretching for flexibility and healthy joints and connective tissue.
We specialize in bringing athletes, dancers, performers, and everyone in between the best training in both health & fitness as well as injury prevention. You deserve a chance to reach your highest goals and potential and we are here to help you do that.
In addition to our fitness programs, we also offer a nutrition program that helps clients learn more about health either in conjunction with their fitness program or on its own and how it can affect their overall health. Our Health Specialists believe that dieting is not the answer but eating well and enjoying what you eat is key to weight loss, lower stress levels and so much more.
We hope that you will join us on this wonderful journey. Welcome to the family!

Fitness & Nutrition Programs
When you sign up with one of our Personal Trainers, you will receive a month's worth of personalized menu plans and shopping lists, weekly personalized fitness routines that you can duplicate at home, and weekly check-ins with your trainer. Clients will learn everything they need to know about how to be nutritionally healthy as well as physically fit.
Signing up with a Personal Trainer requires an initial assessment which will determine the best program for the client and their unique goals. For one month, clients will train using their personalized workout sessions as well as follow-ups with their trainer both in person and via Skype. Personal Trainers will monitor each workout to help the client avoid injury and encourage proper form. Clients are also taught how to build menu plans based on their own dietary needs.
All Personal Training services can be renewed monthly.
Personal Athletic Conditioning
These one-on-one workout sessions are tailored to the type of athletics the client is involved in. For one month, the trainer will meet with the client to help them maintain proper form, gain overall strength and flexibility, increase stamina, lose/gain weight, and much more! An initial assessment will determine the best program for the athlete and their ultimate goals. This program is great for injury prevention and rehabilitation. Clients will also be taught how to build menu plans based on their own dietary needs.
Our weight-loss program offers both nutritional and fitness aid to help you lose weight without sacrificing your health. This program is open to all ages and is tailored to meet the client's own personal needs. Your trainer will help you build a specialized menu and work with any special health issues you may have.
If you have recently had surgery for your weight, please get permission from your doctor and let your personal trainer know ahead of time.
The Bride-to-Be Special offers tailor-made personal training to get you in shape for your gown. Each bride receives an initial assessment with a Personal Fitness Trainer in order to build the best workout to reach their goals. Clients will also learn how to build a proper menu plan based on their own dietary needs.
Ask about adding your Bridesmaids so that you can all work out together. The fee is $10/week for each additional person.
The goal of our nutrition program is to help educate clients on the responsibility they must take in their own lives and provide the best, most reliable care.
Our nutrition program establishes a firm foundation for nutritional insight and application based on the client’s health-specific needs. A health assessment will be performed upon signing with a Health Specialist which will determine the client’s specific need for various nutritional categories including proper fat intake, carbohydrate intake, and protein intake. This assessment will also determine how quickly the client burns calories (metabolism) and how their diet must be adjusted accordingly to prevent deficiencies.
Clients will also gain a better understanding of how vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other energy and non-energy yielding nutrients work together to provide proper nutritional value. The client and trainer will also discuss free radicals and their effect on the body and how to avoid them. Finally, clients will gain a better understanding of how deficiencies in any of the above essentials can be a detriment to overall healthy living.

Upon signing with a Health Specialist, clients will have to fill out an informed consent document as well as a New Client Health Assessment Form and Behavior Questionnaire. These forms will help the trainer properly decide what type of nutritional plan to put the client on as well as inform the trainer of any preexisting health concerns.
When combined with a fitness training program, the health program will be more tailored to suit the client’s current physical fitness schedule, pre and post-training fueling needs, and the specific program selected (i.e. weight-loss, pre-natal, athletic performance, etc.). Though we do recommend that these two programs go hand-in-hand, our health program is a great option for anyone apart from a specific fitness program and can be utilized by all ages.
We recommend a minimum 3-month period to get your body back on track nutritionally.
When signing on as a fitness and/or nutrition client, there is no initial fee.
Our fitness and nutrition memberships generally last one-month and can be renewed automatically.
