Fitness facility owner attends New York program design seminar

Kiele Wilson

Kiele Wilson, the owner of Empower Fitness in Grand Junction, attended a nutrition and fitness program design seminar in New York.

“To be the best in any given industry, it is wise to seek out the leaders in that particular industry and learn from them,” Wilson said.

Joe Dowdell, owner of Peak Performance in New York, shared his knowledge of program design. Men’s Health magazine has rated Dowdell’s gym among the 10 best in the country. Dowdell trains professional athletes, models and actors.

Dr. Mike Roussell shared his knowledge of nutrition and supplements, including his advice for fat loss and athletic performance.

Peak Performance is the second Men’s Health top-10 gym Wilson recently has visited. She also visited Results Fitness in California in June to learn from Rachel and Alywn Cosgrove. The Cosgroves bring together fitness professionals from around the world for what’s dubbed a group mastermind meeting. Wilson was among four finalists for the Results Fitness Business of the Year Award and presented information about Empower Fitness.

“I continue to travel to learn from the best of the best in my industry,” Wilson said. “It is imperative I bring this knowledge to the Grand Valley community.”

Empower Fitness is located at 573 S. Commercial Dr., No. 5. For more information, visit the Web site located at
