Keri Hayes, Owner
As a graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a sports marketing degree, I longed for a career that was energetic, fun and rewarding!
Growing up as an athlete I have always enjoyed being active. Because of my interest in sports I choose a career with the Detroit Red Wings after graduation. I was the marketing coordinator for the team and I really enjoyed it because it was such an on the go position. I was always on my feet running to keep the behind the scenes of live television running smoothly. I knew I would never be happy in a career that made me sit still. In 2005 I had my first child and my body took a major hit. I gained 85 pounds with my daughter. I thought pregnancy was a free pass to eat whatever I wanted and lay on the couch watching movies. After carrying the extra weight for over a year and being totally miserable, I decided to hire a trainer and fight like crazy to get my athletic figure back. The strange thing was I enjoyed that time in the gym, I looked forward to my workouts, I grabbed everything written I could get my hands on to learn more about movement, flexibility and healthy eating. I dropped all the weight and kept it off. This is when the light went on. Why couldn’t I earn a living at something I am truly passionate about? So, I became a certified personal trainer and have been training and teaching group fitness classes since March of 2010 and have never looked back.
I still utilize my sports marketing degree to spread the word about Pure Fitness. It’s very rewarding to be able to combine my two interests into one awesome career!
