Ann Piarrot

Life long committed “Gym Freak”. I started with Jazzercise in the 1980’s 
and realized I absolutely loved group fitness classes. I joined HFC 
about 18 years ago and became a group fitness instructor 10 years ago. 
My real jobs are owning a popular dive bar called The Village Tavern and 
operating a short-term rental property in Donelson, but my favorite job 
is being an instructor! So, the excuse of not having enough time doesn’t 
really work for me!

Water Aerobics

Criss Jontz

I've been a Zumba instructor here for as long as I can remember. It's 
turned into more of a hobby than a job! After seeing the impact of being 
able to teach people to how to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle 
through Zumba a couple of days a week - I wanted to use my experience as 
a personal trainer and touch more lives out there with the gift that 
keeps on giving: Good health! When I'm not teaching I am working my 
other job or babysitting not one but two grandbabies. I know how to 
manage a busy and fit lifestyle because I do it every day. I have 
literally been there and done that! So, rather you need a little pick me 
up after work or a long day at one of my afternoon Zumba classes, 
training in the gym or at home, or just a friend on the same fitness 
journey as you – My contact information is down below. I look forward to 
hearing from you!

Devon Butrum

I graduated from UT Knoxville and found myself working out at Hermitage 
Fitness Center during summer break and fell in love with the place and 
the people. So much so that I eventually snatched a job as a sales and 
marketing rep! I get the word out about Hermitage Fitness Center and 
reel potential prospects in for not only an overall beneficial 
membership, but a long-lasting position in a family owned gym where we 
strive to make everyone feel like the gym is there home away from home. 
I’m proud to be an HFC-er, come and join me! Contact me with any sales 
questions.

Water Aerobics

Ginny Brown

"I have been in the personal training business going on 2 decades. I 
grew up around sports my entire life. My father and uncle are hall of 
famers, so I have learned from some of the best in athletic training. I 
played basketball, softball, soccer, and track throughout my youth. As I 
grew, I found my sport to be basketball as I received a full scholarship 
to GA State University where I studied sociology and kinesiology. During 
my time in Atlanta, I was able to work with our strength and 
conditioning coach as well as work with other high schools, colleges, 
and professional athletes in the Atlanta area.

I have worked with numerous types of clients (needing to lose weight, 
gain weight, stroke patients, athletes, rehab patients) of all ages 
throughout my career. I have studied/studying 4+ years of physical 
therapy - which gives clients the comfort knowing that when they are 
released from rehab, the comfort and care will continue.

Before moving to Nashville, I was working with 84 clients from the ages 
of 17-97. I am also certified as FNS (Fitness Nutrition Specialist), and 
WFS (Womens Fitness Specialist) where I am able to help each client with 
their nutrition and give proper guidelines for a food plan to help each 
client and their specific needs."

Personal Trainer

Jeff Gaines

"For starters, I was fortunate enough to get my start and training under 
the guidance of E.J. Doc Kreis who was head strength and conditioning 
coach at MTSU, Vanderbilt, Colorado, and UCLA - I learned from the best 
on how to train collegiate and professional athletes. My first job as a 
trainer was working with a couple of women Vanderbilt swimmers who 
wanted to develop lean muscle mass to help their performance in the 
water. 21 years later I am still training anyone who wants to change 
their lifestyle and feel better about themselves. I truly care about 
each client and helping them achieve their goals, or just good quality 
of life. I'm a 'show me, don't tell me' type of trainer and I do this so 
all of my clients can learn proper form and technique."

Personal Trainer

J.C. Atkinson

I’m the one who keeps the gym as clean as possible at Hermitage Fitness. 
You’ll probably hear me before you see me because I talk to anybody and 
everybody. I should be a greeter at the front desk – I’m in the wrong 
profession! Especially football! If you like football, then you’re going 
to LOVE me. Let’s just hope we like the same teams.
