Tammy White

In 1991 I joined a gym to change my shape. It was love at first lift! I never looked back and never stopped lifting. I have trained hundreds of clients over the years and have dedicated myself to designing safe, effective workouts for every single one of them. Focus on what your body does for you everyday! If your legs are weak, strengthen them. If your arms are flabby tone them. If your hamstrings are tight, stretch them! Commit to get fit and healthy. Ironbound gym has everything you'll need to achieve your goals.

In a 30 minute training session I like to incorporate balance, strength and flexibility; I promise you will agree that 30 minutes is enough! I will teach you how to workout on your own and get the most out of your time in the gym. Learn how to workout efficiently, within your target heart rate zone. It's quality that counts, not quantity. So what are you waiting on? Let's create a better, stronger, healthier you. (By referral ONLY 880-4251)

Gail Scanlan

I am proud to have been associated with Iron-Bound Gym Since 2003. We have lived in Williamsburg, with a short stint in Richmond since 1989 and many of you have watched my children grow up. I “saw the light” in regards to fitness benefits after the birth of my first child and began teaching classes when my second was 6 months old. Haven’t looked back since! Making fitness fun through teaching classes and working one on one has been a part of my life for over 25 years. I have always believed that in for people to make their health a priority it needs to be fun and they must see how it will benefit them in all aspects of daily life.

As an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, working one on one enables me to be a willing and eager participant in helping others be their personal best and enjoy living each day to the fullest. Helping others has always appealed to me and with a nursing background, the fitness industry is a natural extension of that. It is gratifying when someone new to exercise sees the rewards of healthier, stronger muscles, better heart and lung capacity, the ability to lift grandchildren without pain or labored breathing, or just an improved overall sense of well-being. If this sounds like what you have been needing in your life, I would love to chat with you abou how you can get the most out of every day through your own fitness program. So, give me a call at 757- 876-8380.

Carol Rudesill-Brantley

For more than 40 years, I participated in high and low impact competition sports. As a result, I began to have a lot of sciatica and piriformis problems. I then tried Pilates because I heard it was great for the back. I ended up loving it and saw the immediate benefit so much that I wanted to share Pilates with others.

I received my certification through the Physical Mind Institute in 2007 and receive continuing education credits through Balanced Body.

I believe Pilates can extend the amount of years you can participate in sports as well as every day activities by addressing poor body mechanics, weak core muscles, and poor balance. However, it is also excellent for getting back into exercise after long periods of inactivity. Call 564-8925 for more information and pricing.

Garrett Midnight

Health and fitness has always been my passion. Growing up in Williamsburg, sport and exercise made up a large part of my life and I realized that I wanted to share my knowledge and love of fitness with others. After attending Virginia Tech and receiving a bachelor's degree in human nutrition, foods, and exercise, I decided to  make this dream a reality and become a trainer. 

Over time, my training philosophy has evolved from traditional weightlifting, to one of functional training with an emphasis on proper nutrition. I believe functional fitness translates to overall fitness and can help prepare you for any physical challenges thrown your way. 

I have received certifications through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and I am also a Crossfit Level 1 trainer (CF-L1).
