About the owner

Tammi McClendon

As I approach the 10-year mark where I began making my own life changes, I am creating this new website not just to give general information about New Age Fitness to local folks but also to share everything I've learned in the past decade. But, in fact, it reaches back much further than that. I was much, much younger when I first developed a keen interest in self-development. Having struggled with anxiety, disordered eating and a weight problem from early childhood on, I felt a strong draw to anything that promised to improve my life in any capacity. My diagnosis of OCD, general anxiety and ADD in early adulthood on, fueled my burning desire to find the answers. So, all those years leading up to the last ten, when the internal finally began to manifest in a more external way, I was busy learning how to beat the odds and actually CURE myself of obesity and, along the way, learn to better deal with my anxiety, develop a better relationship with food and my body and completely change almost every single aspect of my life to better reflect the authentic and happy life I am determined to live. My journey was never a straight line, but my path to wellness has been littered with hundreds of books, dozens of documentaries and counselors, and countless scholarly articles. And I want to share everything I've found with as many people as possible!


All of this has added up to my creation of New Age Fitness along with my online material as a supplement for my patrons as well as a place to start for those who aren't local. The answers are not simple rules tied up in a bow. Our bodies and minds are so complex. I want to give you as many rabbit holes to run down and learn about your most valuable and precious tool you've been given on your trip around this spinning rock....your body! My studio is ever evolving to meet all wellness needs and my goal has always been and will continue to be providing this at an affordable price to everyone...and often free when I can!
