Kristen Markel & Beaux Blackwood



Beaux and Kristen started GeauxFit Training with one thing in mind: being healthy is HARD but it does not have to be! As a nurse, Kristen saw so many people struggle with proper nutrition and getting enough physical activity, the top two health risk behaviors according to the CDC. Even her coworkers- medical professionals!- weren't always sure what to do to stay healthy. GeauxFit Training was started to provide a community for New Orleans where it is easy to stay active and eat well- two factors to living a long and healthy life!

Surrounding yourself with people who have the same goals and can support you is key for success in any endeavor. GeauxFit Training provides an active gym community with knowledgeable leaders to help you succeed with your fitness goals- whether it is to lose weight, gain muscle, or become a better athlete. All in a positive, uplifting atmosphere! Check out some photos and videos of us in and out of the gym here.

Our programming is provided by a 20 year veteran in the fitness field with a BS in Exercise Science and countless certifications. It has a very high safety rate. Please read more about him here. We do a variety of movements including kettlebell workouts, barbell workouts, and body weight exercises.
