our story

Jonathan discovered a passion for fitness and nutrition after battling an eating disorder at a young age. His own journey developing a healthy relationship with exercise and food led him to pursue a career in helping others achieve the same freedom he found from misinformation, societal pressure, and negative body image.

After 4 years of interning, coaching, and training others in Tallahassee, Hannah encouraged Jonathan to go after their dream, return to their hometown, and open Townie. Sometimes all you need is for someone to truly believe in you and tell you that you CAN do something. That’s exactly what Hannah did for Jonathan, and together they founded Townie in January of 2016.

Our vision for Townie is to create a family of humble, hungry, and happy people who crush life into their 90’s, and our mission is to help Thomasville get healthy and freed up for maximum impact.

We believe the best way to help you reach your health goals is through personalized coaching. Each person’s goals and needs are different and thus your coaching prescription should be tailored to YOU. We meet with our members one-on-one every 1-3 months at an ‘athlete check-in’ appointment to measure your progress (Inbody body composition scan, attendance review, goals check in etc.) and write a new ‘prescription’.

Whatever your needs, we can help you get healthy and freed up for maximum impact!
