Fitness isn’t something Michael and Beth Caldwell relegate to gym routines and exercise classes—it’s a lifestyle that permeates everything they do. Michael came to adopt this way of life after suffering from weight problems as a child, eventually conquering his issues after discovering exercise can be fun and fulfilling. He went on to devote his entire life to this pursuit of physical health, becoming a weight-loss consultant and chef to coach others toward slimmer figures. His wife, Beth, was an avid gym and sports enthusiast from the beginning, earning a personal-training certification the first chance she got. Even when she was pregnant, she maintained an active lifestyle and was down to a size 2 in a matter of months after giving birth to her second son. After discovering that the unique and varied CrossFit program was the well-rounded regimen they both sought, the duo became CrossFit Level 1 certified trainers and opened CrossFit BNI to share their passion for fitness with the community.BNI stands for Beyond Normal Intensity, and pairs well as a motto with the CrossFit philosophy of vigorous functional training. During the gym's Workout of the Day, participants hoist barbells, sprint through cardio drills, and practice gymnastics techniques, prepping their bodies to perform most any physical challenge thrown at them while outside of the gym or onstage in Peter Pan: Action Hero. Michael and Beth also host personal-training sessions and CrossFit kids' classes, creating a comfortable yet motivating environment for visitors of all ages.

During the one-hour workouts, participants work to perfect 10 areas of physical skill, which include cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, power, and agility. The staff also provides nutritional guidance to augment the process of becoming fitter.

Massage therapist Heather Barnhart discovered the healing properties of massage in 2007 after talking to friends who had recovered from injuries and surgeries with regular therapy. Heather quickly enrolled in courses, graduating at the top of her class and pulling in her certification in October of 2009. Now, at Advance Therapeutic Massage, she employs the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage to oust chronic pain, long flowing strokes of Swedish massage to usher guests into deep relaxation, and the strain-soothing maneuvers of prenatal massage to send babies a Morse code message about stopping it with all the kicking.
