Eric and Michelle Garner founded Magnolia Elite Fitness as a tonic for their frustration at the limitations of both small and gargantuan gyms. In an effort to create a happy medium, they started the CrossFit-centric workout haven. They each have level 1 certification in the art, which underscores their authority in serving their signature CrossFit dish to hungry exercisers. The program incorporates a variety of functional movement drills to challenge and strengthen muscles. Eric's and Michelle's gym takes on a decidedly family-friendly characteristic thanks to daycare services and the Disney mascots that participate in workouts. Whether tanning or lifting heavy metal, clients can retire afterward to locker rooms and showers.
