HEIDI LEMANSKY

Owner & Fitness Instructor

I love how a good workout makes me feel and I love sharing that with others. That passion led me to become a certified instructor. The energy, motivation, and support you find in group fitness classes is like nothing else. Over the years, group fitness has become a huge part of my life. At Inspired Fitness Studio, I hope to bring a space for people to come together, workout, release stress, get fit and have fun doing it. I only discovered Les Mills a few years ago but quickly fell in love with it and was hooked. Les Mills brings you the perfect combination of exercise and music that will get your energy through the roof and leave you craving more. I am currently certified in Les Mills BodyPump, BodyCombat and BodyAttack. I am also a certified TRX instructor and currently studying to become a NASM certified personal trainer. When I am not in the studio, I am a full-time mother and wife to my 3 amazing kids and husband. I am also a Registered Dental Hygienist and work part-time in a busy periodontal office. In my spare time, I enjoy boating, watersports, or just hanging out on the lake with my family making memories.

JILL HOBSON

Fitness Instructor

Jilanne Hobson is an Instructor at Inspired Fitness Studio. Physical Therapist Assistant at Harrington Hospital and Old Sturbridge Academy. Former Dance Instructor for over 25 years at Oklahoma City University, The Inspired Arts Dance Studio, and other local studios. Mother of two incredible young adults. Bachelor in Performing Arts and Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant. Les Mills Certified in Body Combat, Body Flow and Sh’Bam since 2012. I have been a dancer my whole life, so that was my first love. When I first joined the fitness world, my passion for dance transitioned to focusing on health and wellness.

JULIE FRANCIS-ASHMEAD

Fitness Instructor

I am the sleep deprived, caffeine dependent mother of four daughters. I have a degree in nutrition and have been a Registered Dietitian since 2004, and transitioned into a fitness focus in 2014. I am currently certified in Les Mills group fitness for BodyPump, BodyFlow, BodyAttack, CX Worx, and BodyCombat. I am also certified in TRX and a NASM certified personal trainer. Once I found group fitness, I was hooked! Every workout is a mini party and I want to share that fun group experience with as many people as I can. We want to be pushing limits not because we are told to, but because we are driven to. And turn fitness from something we dread, to something we crave!

LISA MAJKA

Fitness Instructor

Being surrounded by all types of people, energies and other superb instructors is just a piece of group fitness for me. It’s become a way of life and it’s very therapeutic not only to teach, but to take classes as well. That’s how I fell in love with Les Mills. As a certified LM BodyPump and BodyStep instructor, my goal is to give others not only a sense of belonging, but to help improve self-esteem and become their best self through exercise. The friendships and bonds formed are life changing as well as what exercise can do for your mind, body and soul.

MELISSA

Fitness Instructor

My name is Melissa and for fun I’m a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. I began my fitness career 5 years ago because of my passion for LesMills BodyStep and love for the group/team aspect of group fitness. As a fitness instructor and trainer, I coach members on proper technique in executing movements, how to stay in the workout without running out of steam, motivate members to push themselves to the next level and encourage members to step out of their comfort zone and try different workouts. I’m certified in LesMills BodyStep, BodyCombat, BodyPump, BodyAttack and GRIT. I’m also a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. I enjoy group fitness so much that for my own workouts you’ll find me in a class with our fellow members and instructors.

In addition to being a fitness fanatic, I’m an attorney at MAPFRE Insurance, and a Nichols College Alumna and Board of Advisor member.
