RENOVATE | RENEW | RESTORE | REPAIR | REPEAT
Innovative Fitness, Inspired By You.
What We Stand For
We believe fitness should be holistic, fun, and individualized.
We pride ourselves on being a small gym, which allows us to know every name and face, every individual's goals and needs, and therefore are able to provide a tailored workout, even in our group settings.
We strive to make Renovo more of a community than a gym, and want everyone to feel welcome and wanted here.
We are a place that welcomes everyone, no matter where they are on their fitness journey, from just getting started to lifelong athletes.
We are truly a fitness family, and we hope that you will join us!

Shannon has spent the majority of her career in Corporate Legal after becoming an Ohio State Bar Association board certified paralegal. After her first two children, she fell prey to poor eating habits with minimal to no activity. The lack of a healthy lifestyle resulted in low self esteem for Shannon which served as the catalysts to motivate her to make a change. Taking what she had learned from her previous pregnancies and, looking to the future, she opted for her third and fourth pregnancies to prioritize health and fitness. Finding it difficult to maintain cardio, Shannon discovered strength trainer for women from fitness trainer Jamie Eason. This transformed Shannon's workouts into a combination of circuit, HIIT, and strength training. She has found joy and empowerment through this holistic training approach which shines through in her workouts and programming!

“I love the personal touch of a small gym. They know your name and what you need in the way of a workout. They are encouraging, but can also give you a kick in the butt if you need it!”
