Meet the Trainers

Hi! I’m Megan Niederhauser. I grew up in Salt Lake City with a family who loved the outdoors. I grew up snowboarding, rock climbing, backpacking and canyoneering. I loved sports and played soccer for many years but grew a passion for tennis. After high school I attended Utah State University for a couple of years. I loved college but wanted to do something that helped people, so I left to live in China where I helped little children learn English. A few months after I got back, I went to Arizona where I served an lds mission. While in Arizona I met my husband. We soon got married and we have two of the most amazing little girls that we love and adore! My husband and I currently live in Logan where we still enjoy the outdoors and being active. We love to go boating and snowmobiling any chance we get. I love being active and I love fitness. Becoming a personal trainer has been one of my greatest accomplishments and I can’t wait to help others reach their fitness goals!

Hi, I’m Camille Martindale! "I believe life isn't about avoiding the bruises, I think it's about collecting the scars to prove that we showed up for it!!" I love the smell of chalk mixed with sweat. I love the sound of weights being clanked on the floor. I love the feel of a barbell in my hands, along with my heart pounding in my chest. I'm a once avid crossfitter turned competitive powerlifter, and a wannabe Ninja Warrior! And when I die I want to be buried in the mountains, for its the one place I feel most at home.

My name is Holly Voges. I am a mom with two kids (three and one), and let me tell you, it’s not quiet at our house! I am a Certified Personal Trainer who specializes in Weight loss and Corrective Exercise. I decided to become a personal trainer while my husband was in the military and we were stationed overseas in Germany. I put on a lot of weight while we were living there and I decided to change my life. After a lot of sweat and tears I made a life change and now I want to help others do the same. I am excited to be working at Sports Academy and to get to know all of you!

Hi, I’m Jenna Eskelson! I attended Southern Virginia University where I played college softball! I also graduated with a Bachelors in Family Life and Child Development while I was there.  Later in life, after having 2 kids, I found myself overweight and unhappy. I wanted to change and to find joy in being active again. I joined the Sports Academy and fell in love with being active all over again. I was able to be a part of the Ultimate Loser program and lost 27 lbs. Right after the program I moved to Missouri while my husband attended Physical Therapy School. While there, I was able to become involved in a cancer survivor program called, “Livestrong for the Y”. I became the lead instructor for the program and decided I wanted to become a certified personal trainer. I became an AFAA certified personal trainer, began teaching group aerobics, then moved back to Cache Valley where I started working as a personal trainer at the Sports Academy. I am now very passionate about improving and changing lives through health and fitness.
