Joe Stranz

Joe Stranz, BS Pre-Physical Therapy

Bio: Since a very early age you could find pictures of me wearing a Packers helmet I had gotten for Christmas or holding a brand new pint sized baseball glove.  Between school sports, spending time with friends, or helping family with farm work I have always been an active person.  As I grew older and progressed in different sports, areas such as off season training became more prevalent and key to my improvement. 

My interest in food and nutrition, training methods, and workout design began to rise which caused me to choose a health related major at the University of Stevens Point.  Throughout my college career I worked as a bartender in order to pay for school and my daily needs.  This is where I really discovered my love for working with people and the relationships that are built because of it.  I really enjoy getting to be around people and hopefully improve their day in some way. 

Now that I have attained my Bachelor’s Degree in Pre-Physical Therapy, I am looking to share my knowledge with those who are seeking advice and wanting to change their lives for the better

Darien Terry

Darien Terry, ACE-PT

Bio: Hello! I am Darien! Fitness has always been something I've striven for. I started really getting into fitness and strength training in 9th grade for Football, mainly because I was always so small. That passion grew throughout high school and turned into a career path for me! Football was a main driver for me. It became the reason why I wanted to live a healthy lifestyle. Through high school I was also a participant in Track and Power-lifting as well as Bicycle Moto-Cross (BMX) in the summers. I am currently a student with Mid-State Technical College working towards an associates degree in Health and Wellness Promotion. After I am done there, I look to further my education and obtain a Bachelors in the same field. I find real happiness in hearing the success and obstacles that people have overcome to obtain something they normally would have dreamed about. Hearing why people train, and how they have overcome negative situations is why I continue to love this profession.

Ethan Borchardt

Ethan Borchardt, BS Health Promotion and Wellness, NSCA-CSCS

Bio: I didn’t realize my passion for fitness until my last year of high school. Throughout my time in high school I was always the “chubby kid,” and I finally had enough of all the low self-esteem and low self-efficacy that came with it, so I started to exercise. I realized that as I invested my time, and made improving myself a priority, my goals seemed more reachable, and my obstacles seemed smaller. Since that time, I have continued my fitness journey through obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion and Wellness from UWSP and will continue on to grad school in the future. My fitness journey has taught me empathy, positivity, and prioritization. I want to be the person to help you break down your barriers and succeed in anything that you wish to accomplish!

Shannon Kitowski

Shannon Kitowski, ISSA-PT

Bio: When I graduated high school, I attended UW-Milwaukee to pursue a career in dance. However, this was cut short, due to painful, debilitating injuries suffered during my third year. After taking time off, I eventually earned a Bachelor of Science in Pre-Physical Therapy from UW-Stevens Point.

However, it was not until 2012 that my passion for fitness truly developed and took shape. I was involved in a car accident involving hospitalization and extensive rehabilitation for my injuries. After my accident, I sore to myself that I would do everything in my power to never feel as weak or as vulnerable as I did then. I adapted a personal trainer and began training in boxing, muay thai, strength training and high-intensity strength training circuits, and I haven’t look back since.

I am excited to be a part of the Adventure 212 team, and look forward to meeting all of you and discussing your fitness goals – whatever they may be!

Lindsay Lechner

Lindsay Lechner, ACE-PT

Bio: Hi, my name is Lindsay Lechner. I am currently a student at UW- Stevens Point pursuing a double major in Elementary Education and Spanish. I played a wide array of sports in high school including volleyball, golf, softball, and running cross country. Now in college I love participating in intramural sports. In my free time I also love to spend time in the outdoors going camping, paddle boarding, and hiking. My true passion for fitness really came into play after beginning college, when exercise helped me overcome some health problems that came about. Along the way I learned that making time to exercise allowed me to focus better, feel more energized, and also made it easier for me to eat healthfully. I also enjoy participating in community organizations to help promote living a healthy lifestyle, as I have served as a member on a Healthy Communities Healthy Youth Coalition and a Healthy Eating Active Lifestyles committee.
I am so excited to be a part of the Adventure 212 Family and look forward to helping get you to your goals!

Jordan Smith

Jordan Smith, ISSA-CPT

Bio: Growing up in a town of 500 people, there isn’t much to do.  Even before I could walk I had some sort of ball in my hand.  So growing up, my time was filled with being active and playing sports.  I’ve been a multi-sport athlete all my life, and that’s where I learned the importance of teamwork, how to be a leader, and the value of hard work.  After highschool, I attended UW-Marathon County where I was a captain on the men’s basketball team and was part of multiple conference championships.  I am currently attending UW-Stevens Point, majoring in Business Administration/Management.
