How it all started
Pride Fitness and Nutrition was started because founder, Greg Bentley was tired of seeing clients working with trainers for years on end without seeing any body composition results. He was frustrated, knowing people were paying hundreds of dollars per week with no results to show for it. Being certified in nutrition, Greg realized that these people we only getting a small portion of information needed form their trainers. They lacked the proper nutrition guidance to get them the results they wanted. In June 2022, that vision was realized with the launch of Pride Fitness and Nutrition. Almost immediately our services have been in high demand and we've proudly grown our client base to over a hundred people in no time at all! At that point, Greg knew he needed to grow his team to better serve his clientele and that is when Michelle Pollard joined PRIDE F&N as a personal trainer and nutrition coach.
