Teckla Putnam

BS Exercise Science
N.S.C.A. Personal Trainer Certified
Health & Wellness Coach, Wellcoaches School of Coaching Certified

With a background in exercise science, I have been fortunate spending all of my career in a hospital-based wellness center where it has been my passion to engage people in activity to overcome disease, enable healing, or simply to be strong and fit for life. I have enjoyed work in cardiac, pulmonary, cancer, eating disorder and athletic injury rehabilitation as well as personal training. Montana is a very special place to live, work and play. Helping people discover and remember why they want to be Well is a rewarding and energizing process to be a part of. Hearing what delights, frustrates, excites and even puzzles us all about what it means to eat well, move more, stress less and have brighter health is a privilege. Being creative together to discover new ways of supporting real and lasting change is my favorite aspect of coaching. We know that exercise and good nutrition will afford us better health but the challenges are the reason for an ally.

Trina Starker

Trina is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Council on Strength and Fitness and certified by the Senior Fitness Association. Trina comes to us from Buffalo Hill Terrace, a large senior independent living facility, where she was the manager of the Fitness and Recreation department and the director of the Wellness Program. This experience gave her an appreciation for a wide array of ability levels and the importance of accommodating for them.

Trina started her career in 1991 coaching a high school dance team. It was a very rewarding experience that led to a lifelong love of teaching (and a state championship!) She went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Sciences with an emphasis in psychology and went into elementary school teaching for several years. Her passion for education is reflected in her personal training sessions and classes, assisting her clients to obtain the knowledge they need to obtain their goals.

Trina’s experience of working with seniors has helped her develop her philosophies of training. Above all she believes training needs to be safe and productive. She puts an emphasis on making sure your program is appropriate for your ability level and that it is being properly executed to avoid injury. In order to make you successful she helps you find an exercise and nutrition plan that you enjoy and is effective for you; one size does not fit all.

Trina enjoys working with her clients as individuals and helping them find lifelong wellness through education and coaching.
