meet renee allenyoga instructor

Renee finds yoga to be a valuable part of health & wellness. She started working out in the ’90’s and loved doing cardio, strength training, and Pilates. When Renee added yoga to her fitness program, she longed to share that with others.

Renee began teaching yoga in schools and for friends, family and at community events. That eventually grew to becoming a E-RYT 500 Yoga Teacher (the highest level of yoga teacher training) and obtaining additional certifications in Yin Yoga, Experiential Anatomy for Yoga, Yoga for Teens, and Fireflex Yoga (for firefighters).

Renee taught yoga at Santa Cruz Yoga, several gyms and in Fire Stations throughout the Bay Area in California.

Renee recently moved to Florida with 5 of her 6 kids and all 7 grandchildren. She is excited to get to know you and be a part of this community!

meet Adam HUff, trainer & instructor

Adam Huff is a personal trainer and coach with over 29 years experience. At a young age Adam wanted to excel in sports. His dad introduced him to weight training and he never looked back. 

If you’ve visited our YouTube channel, you’ve probably seen Adam in some of our workout videos. He’s used almost every type of equipment we offer here at BIM, along with innovative approaches to using them in ways you may never have thought of.

Adam specializes in coaching those who feel they want more out of their gym experience. He also dedicates some of his time to mentoring youth athletes as well.

One of Adam’s greatest joys is seeing his clients grow and succeed with the knowledge he’s shared with them.
