Charlotte Fountain CPT/Sports Nutritionist
Charlotte Fountain, co-owner of Next Level Fitness, will help answer any of your administrative needs. She obtained her BBA in marketing from Georgia State University, but her real passion lies in helping others achieve their nutrition and fitness goals. After having her third child just a little over a year and a half ago, Charlotte was 30 pounds overweight. "I was exhausted from working full-time nights, finishing school, and staying up with an infant. I was depressed with my body and needed a change!" That is when she discovered AdvoCare's world-class nutritional products. Within just a few short months of using the elite nutrition system, Charlotte dropped the weight and began empowering her body again. Now she is a marathon runner and training for figure competitions, holds IFA group fitness/personal training and sports nutrition certifications, and is an expert at designing personalized diets to help clients reach their fitness goals. Charlotte recently placed 2nd at Battle of the Bodies Figure Class A in May 2013. She also qualified for Nationals by placing 2nd in Figure Class A at the Oklahoma in June of 2013. She would love to help coach you in your nutrition goals with AdvoCare recommendations.

Kenneth Ground CPT
Kenneth Ground, active duty military since 2002, works as a Bioenvironmental Engineering Technician at the Tulsa Air National Guard. Kenny joined Next Level Fitness with his wife Bridgette to motivate her and become more active. The first couple weeks were tough. "But after that third and fourth week, I was hooked. The interval runs, 800 m here, 400m there, throughout the workouts, has done more for me than the 2 miles runs I used to do. I have dropped about 15lbs. Losing the weight and all of the interval training has decreased my military fitness run (1.5 miles) by 1 minute and 30 seconds and helped me achieve a personal best score of 96.1 out of 100. The reason I wanted to become a trainer at Next Level Fitness is because I am hooked on the interval training. I plan on splashing in some weight training aspects along with the interval training to help push and motivate other people to achieve their fitness goals."
