Gunelson Fitness & Nutrition

Our Studios were designed with your privacy in mind. Working out here is as comfortable as working out in your own home.  We train one-on-one or can take partner or small group sessions.  Matt and I are also available to travel into your home as well.  For clients outside the Twin Cities area, we provide personalized online fitness and nutrition programs.  Please contact Matt and I via email or by phone anytime for more information.

Hello, my name is Brigitt Gunelson BS, CA, NFPT-CPT.  My mission in life and in business is to help Empower YOU to Create a Healthier, Happier Life.  My education and training includes, among others, a Bachelors Degree in Human Development from South Dakota State University, a Personal Fitness Trainer Certification through the National Federation of Professional Trainers and an International Aromatherapy Certification through the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy.  

I have struggled, over the years, with over-eating and weight gain after being a very active and fit child and teenager.  I was a ballet dancer and in almost every competitive sport.  A 75+ lb. weight gain in college is what led me back into the gym.  I dropped the weight by hiring a personal trainer (I would later meet my personal trainer husband in that same gym). I know what it is like to struggle with your weight and Matt and I hope to be mentors/guides to those of you looking to make healthy changes in your life.

My husband, Matt Gunelson NFPT-CPT, NIHS (National Federation of Professional Trainers & National Institute of Health and Science) studied every weight lifting and fitness magazine and book he could get his hands on (at a young age) and taught himself weight training.  Matt has been writing up fitness and nutrition programs as well as personal training his family, friends and clients, successfully, for over 15 years.  On May 19th 2012 Matt entered the Natural Bodybuilding Competition world and placed in the top 5.  We are very excited for his new-found passion.

In 2013 Matt placed 5th at the Mr. Natural MN, his PRO Natural Bodybuilding Qualifier and on May 24th, 2014 he placed 4th, one step closer to becoming a Professional NATURAL Bodybuilder!
