Our Staff and Instructors


Cynthia Lindsey holds a Masters Degree in Education and a Bachelors Degree in Historical Political Studies. She is a Certified personal fitness trainer through American Council on Exercise (ACE). She teaches Pound, Yoglates, HIIT, and offers personal training.

Health, wellness, and exercise is not only an interest of Cynthia’s, it is a necessary lifestyle for her. Cynthia was diagnosed with severe Crohns Disease. Consistent exercise, education, and nutrition changes have increased her strength and endurance and ability to maintain a lifestyle that has helped her reduce the symptoms related to Crohns Disease.

In 2014, Cynthia became a certified Fitness Instructor. She began reaching out to clients who she could train and help deal with not only the physical issues of their life, but emotional ones as well. After training out of her home gym (after a full day of teaching EBD at school), she decided to purchase a gym, Edgewater Fitness club.

Cynthia has grown her business through this opportunity, but remains grounded by her love of teaching people how to become healthy.
