Adrienne decided to became a Certified Mad Dogg Spin instructor in 2013 after being a cycling student for almost 4 years.  Adrienne fell in love with the combination of speed, endurance and strength cycling classes offered and wanted to share her passion for the sport with others.

Her main goal during every session is to motivate her students to step outside their "comfort zone" to discover their true athletic potential. The best part about being an instructor is seeing her clients fulfill their health goals.

Adrienne was born and raised in Ohio. Where her love of athletics started at a very young age. She earned her varsity letter at Pickerington High school in basketball and track. She went on to run track on a collegian level at Ashland University, finishing her bachelors degree at The Ohio State University in 2002 (Go Bucks). Currently, when Adrienne is not motivating her spin students, she is spending lots of time with family and friends.
Andi has been in the fitness and wellness industry for the past 15 years. She began by becoming certified to teach group fitness classes but found her passion for yoga while pregnant with her son. She is a certified 200E-YRT teacher and has assisted in leading several teacher trainings.
 

She returned from southern China in January of 2016 where she and her family had lived for the past two years. While there she was able to teach and to learn from different people from all of the world. This experience deepened her love for the practice and its power to reach ALL people. She has seen how yoga can be transformational both physically and soulfully and teaches from a place of love and gratitude.

Angie has been in the fitness industry for more than eight years. She is a proud Les Mills BodyPump and CXWorx instructor and an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. During the day, she’s a marketing and communications specialist. As an instructor, Angie takes a genuine interest in her members, and wants them to have the very best experience every single class.

Amanda Smith is a certified cycling instructor, ACE certified Group Exercise instructor, ACE certified Health Coach, barre certified instructor, certified Pilates instructor and licensed physical therapist. She is originally from Oklahoma. And while she is a true-blooded Sooner fan, she loves routing for the Buckeyes (as long as they are not playing the Sooners). Her goal is to make everyone feel "better than when they walked in".
 

Amanda started teaching at the age of 18 when the Reebok step aerobics workout was introduced and thong leotards were the "go-to" for all exercise instructors. She has seen the evolution of exercise over her 25 years of experience. And has grown over the years to become a fun, well-rounded instructor with many "tools" in her "tool box" to offer anyone who walks into her classes.

 

Amanda enjoys fun, fast paced music with energizing intervals in both her cycling and barre classes. One of her favorite parts about teaching ANY class is making all the participants feel better than when they walked in. When you walk into her class, she will "Welcome You to the Best Hour of Your Day!" and do every thing in her power to MEAN IT!

When not teaching, Amanda is kept busy running her own specialized Pilates business. She is also busy running her 3 girls around to ballet, soccer, piano and tennis. She does find the time to hike and go out with her loving husband, Kevin!

Amy found yoga in 2010 and was instantly hooked! She had been curious about yoga and a foot injury inspired her to seek other forms of fitness besides aerobics.

Brittany became a certified barre-OM instructor in the fall of 2016. Brittany played tennis throughout school but needed a way to stay active after graduation. She tried to be a runner many times but realized unless it was running to the mall, running just wasn’t for her. Group fitness classes kept her honest and motivated. She originally joined PAI to try yoga but became hooked on the barre-OM classes. She loves that barre-OM is modifiable for all fitness levels and gets excited when new clients experience the intensity of barre for the first time.

Carrie Ingham is a teacher focused on total wellness of body, mind and spirit. Her classes use accessible skeletal alignment and thoughtful sequencing to make flexibility and muscle tone inevitable side effects of a satisfying practice. Carrie’s athletic background in gymnastics and OSU cheerleading taught her that strong, flexible muscles prevent injury and yoga taught her the inseparable connection between an open body and a peaceful mind.
Catie found her way into yoga through her mother when she was only 13 years old. Practicing on and off again for years, she finally fell back in love with the practice after her second year of college. One year at Ohio University and one year at Ohio State University led Catie to weight gain along with issues with mental illness. Yoga was her saving grace and changed the course of her life for the better. Catie participated in PAI’s second 200 Hr- YTT with her mother, and it proved to be one of her greatest life experiences to date.

Along with Yoga, Catie is a Personal Trainer and fitness enthusiast with a passion for helping others.

Born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand, Chan Hemintranont moved to the U.S. in 2001 to study for her MBA at Case Western Reserve University. In 2010, Chan called on her background in finance and accounting to found the PAI Yoga and Fitness studio. Her goal in opening the studio was to share her enthusiasm for active pursuits and to be part of people’s life journey.
 
She received a 200-hour yoga training certification with Tammy Lyons and Mitchell Belier at Innerbliss yoga studio and has further her study with a 300-hour yoga training certification with Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons in Bali, Indonesia in summer of 2015.
 
Her approach to Vinyasa flow is creative and rejuvenating. The intention of each class, through breathing technique, is to help students find calmness in their minds, to strengthen the body-mind-soul connection, and to experience a new sense of being, of completeness. Above all, Chan loves having fun during class--and even making people giggle! "If you can laugh in a yoga class," she says, "you are an advanced student."
 
For Chan, the most fulfilling aspect of opening the studio has been witnessing and nurturing positive changes in PAI’s members. Seeing the physical and mental growth of so many aspiring yoga lovers and athletes has further deepened her commitment to sharing her passion with others. Chan feels both grateful and honored to be able to serve in this way.

A self-proclaimed “non-athlete,” Emily came to yoga in 2013 after her diagnosis with a heart condition led her to look for a gentle, non-scary form of exercise. She quickly discovered (with her doctor’s approval, of course!) that she loved hot, strength-building power flows, and has learned to better quiet her mind and listen to her body through her practice. Feeling stronger and steadier than ever, Emily tries to share yoga and its life-changing benefits with everyone she meets. She completed Yoga Teacher Training in Pai’s first teacher training program in 2016, and is looking forward to continuing to learn at PAI!

 

A central Ohio native, Emily graduated from the Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s degree in 2011 and Master’s degree in 2013. She works in the employee benefits industry by day and pursues her passions for yoga, horses, reading, and cooking by night. Emily and her husband, Andy, live in Dublin with their adorable dog, Ramona.

Emily started her fitness journey while working the front desk at a local gym and studio. After graduating college, she wanted a way to stay fit and she made a goal to train for a half marathon, which she completed in 2015. Working at the gym gave her a great routine and she eventually got hooked into the classes, but wanted a little more.

After taking BODYPUMP for less than a year Emily decided she wanted to take her passion a little further and became a Les Mills Instructor in 2015. Adding on in that same year Emily became a Mad Dogg Athletics Spin Instructor. Emily loves the group fitness atmosphere but decided to take her training knowledge further and help people one on one, so she studied and got her Personal Training Certification through ACE Fitness in March of 2017.

Emily loves helping clients make changes they can keep throughout their lives. Fitness has become a passion for Emily and something she never imagined for herself, but could now never live without.

My fitness journey began shortly after high school when I started doing workout videos, such as step aerobics and kickboxing, in my basement. Eventually, I began running and loved it. In 2013, an injury forced me to take a break and really focus on cross training while I healed. In a short time, I became a Star Level 2 Mad Dogg certified spinning instructor, ACE personal trainer, and BodyPump and CXWORX certified as well. I have a passion for fitness and love to share it with people! When not teaching, I spend time with my family, usually at one of our sporting events!
