Lead Trainer - Winter Haven
My name is Kelly Geniott and I am the lead trainer at the Integrity Bootcamp Winter Haven location. I grew up in a small town in southeastern Pennsylvania and I have been athletic most of my life. I was involved in many different sports growing up, but my favorite was volleyball which I was blessed to be able to play in high school and college. I stayed active after college, but didn’t get serious about my fitness until after I had my two sons.
I started by running on my own mostly because it was the most convenient exercise to do when you have small children. I found it hard to motivate myself and I yearned (and prayed!) for others to work out with to stay motivated. The Lake Wales YMCA started a ladies bootcamp in 2011 and that was a game changer for me. Both of the ladies that led that bootcamp were such an inspiration to me! I met some great women that ended up becoming great friends and fitness accountability partners. I ran farther and faster with them than I would on my own. I also became stronger as we encouraged each other along the way. Sadly that bootcamp ended, but I met Shawn a year later and could not wait for him to bring the Integrity Bootcamp to our area. As a participant in this bootcamp, I’ve had a wonderful experience—I have been challenged and encouraged in my fitness journey!
I am so grateful for the chance to lead this bootcamp because I really believe in the power of group encouragement. It doesn’t matter what fitness level you are at in boot camp. We can all work to the best of our ability in this group setting. Integrity bootcamp is unique in its ‘attitude’—we truly have family atmosphere. That is what makes coming to bootcamp worth it—even though you have to wake up early (while it is still dark out) and everyone else is still in bed!
When I am not leading bootcamp or diabolically planning our next session, I am a wife to Michael and a homeschooling mom of two crazy, but very loveable, boys. I also teach Group Cycling classes at the Lake Wales YMCA.
Trainer - Safety Harbor
My name is Jeff Viars and I'm a fitness instructor/coach for Integrity Bootcamp. I received my Bachelor's degree in Sports Management with a minor in Exercise Science from Warner University. My degree included courses ranging from event management and sports psychology, to teaching personal fitness and coaching sports. While attending Warner, I was fortunate enough to be a member of the Warner University Baseball team. As a collegiate athlete, I gained valuable experiences in strength and conditioning, teamwork and leadership roles both on and off the field. I was also active within the community by participating in many volunteer activities such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Habitat for Humanity, coaching YMCA youth sports, and assisting special needs children live out their dreams playing little league baseball. I draw from all of these experiences to mirror the philosophy of Integrity Health and Fitness.
After utilizing my degree for over 5 years which included employment with the Tampa Bay Lightning, I have decided to pursue a graduate degree in the medical field including health and fitness studies. I will be attending Nova Southeastern University in the Summer of 2016 to pursue a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree. I've always had an interest in the science of how the body moves/operates relating back to courses taken in Biomechanics and Kinesiology at Warner. I feel this will allow me to continue to learn and gain knowledge in a field that is rapidly growing, along with helping others achieve goals and becoming more educated to live a healthier life.
My wife Shaela and I are enjoying being parents to our first child Brycen, born in April 2014. We are both from Cincinnati, Ohio (huge Reds fans) and currently reside in the Oldsmar area. I enjoy playing softball, basketball and golf. I like staying active through many other outdoor activities and taking advantage of the warm Florida weather!
Owner/Director/Lead Trainer - Safety Harbor
Hi, I’m Shawn Viars and I'm the Owner/Director of Integrity Health and Fitness, and the Integrity Bootcamp program. My love for fitness began when I was in elementary school. All throughout my life I have played for many different athletic teams. This includes playing sports as a student and playing/coaching sports as an adult. I enjoyed the competitive atmosphere as well as the team component. I thrive on being my best and making others around me better. I enjoy setting goals and working to meet and exceed them. I know that a team is better together and I have practiced this not only on the court/field, but in life as well. I have learned the benefits of staying in top sports condition all of my life.
Since moving to Oldsmar from Cincinnati, OH. in 1999, I have been involved in our community coaching competitive softball and playing competitive softball as well. Most recently I coached girls’ flag football at Eastlake High School for 8 years, the last 5 of them as the varsity coach. My conditioning program is proven to give athletes the skills to be competitive and stay in top performing condition.
For the last 25 years I have been in full time ministry in the area of music. This experience has taught me the value of investing in people and helping people in their personal and spiritual lives. For the last 6 years I have been on staff at a local church and used my experience in both fields to create a unique outreach ministry. I understand the value of not only being physically fit but spiritually fit as well.
Back in 2010 my wife went to a bootcamp using a Groupon and after completing the four week session told me that because of my conditioning program at the high school that I should start my own bootcamp conditioning program. Because of my extensive training in sports as an athlete and coach I decided to give it a try. What began as a fun bootcamp for our local church community quickly turned into a full blown outreach to the outside community that has reached well over 350 people over the last 6 years. I never dreamed the program would last this long. It became evident that there was a need for an affordable fitness program that not only taught people to be physically fit, but emotionally and spiritually fit as well. My training as a staff pastor has given me the relational skills to make it a priority to help people as a fitness coach and a life coach. I’m using my skills of pastoral leadership with my training as a fitness coach to expand to the Tampa Bay area to help people become everything they were meant to be in Christ in their spiritual AND physical bodies.
I’m bringing my experiences as a lifelong athlete, certified coach in the Pinellas County Schools, and life coaching skills to partner with the local church to provide a wholesome and faith based health and fitness program. The difference about my bootcamp is that our teammates get personal attention and I don’t leave anyone behind. I excel at motivating and encouraging people to be their absolute best. If you are interested in joining a fitness family then you have come to the right place. I look forward to helping you attain your fitness goals and becoming spiritually fit as well.
I have recently moved from being lead trainer in Winter Haven to be back as the lead trainer in Safety Harbor.
