Group Fitness Classes
All group fitness classes are free for members, and guests are welcome with a day pass! Space is limited, so you must sign up for a class in advance! You may sign up here or on the MINDBODY app.
Due to limited class sizes, there is a $5 charge for each no-show or late cancellation (less than 24 hours notice). If you have signed up for a class and you know you won’t be able to attend, please go to your MINDBODY app and cancel your registration at least 24 hours prior to the class time to avoid a charge and to give the spot to someone else.

Meet The Instructors
I love to move. I have been practicing ballet and modern dance since I was a kid. I have been in a number of East Coast dance companies but now I just dance recreationally at concerts and when I am at home and feeling the groove. For this reason, I love Barre technique and Pilates. I also love getting my heart rate up with explosive cardio moves. My classes are always a combination of these elements.
I hope to create an inclusive environment where people of all levels feel safe and challenged. The playlists are eclectic and I love to incorporate my dance training into classes when appropriate.
I am studying Radiology at Weber State so I have a foundational knowledgeable of body systems and physiology which inform my lesson plans.
Fitness isn’t just about changing the shape of your body. I hope to foster a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle by encouraging a strong social element into the classes. I hope that everyone leaves feeling stronger in all aspects of their life.
Darlene Winter comes from a fun and active family of USAF brats, and, coincidentally got her fitness giddy-up at Hill AFB, Utah in 2004. Although primarily focusing on Pilates, mind-body connection and core strength classes, Darlene has held many other fitness certifications since 2004. This includes PiYo, Urban Rebounding, Body Bar, Hip Hop Hustle, MEL (Military Exercise Leader) and more.
Darlene’s daily inspiration spawns mostly from her supportive husband and 3 children (two of whom are grown and finding success of their own in the US Navy and also in the automotive technician world). She describes her family as being, ‘the wind underneath her cape.’
Due to her avid participation in the wellbeing of her family and students – as well as all things Pilates – Darlene was affectionately given the name, ‘Pilates Mama.’ This name became a sentimental part of Darlene’s fitness journey to continue to inspire others to set their souls on fire, and therefore launched her online presence through social media, and text/email loops. With a desire to provide a wider variety of wellness info beyond her beloved Pilates, Darlene began hosting local spring wellness retreats in 2017. These full-day retreats offer a wealth of fitness/wellness/nutrition content provided by professional presenters, and boast the potential for lifelong camaraderie among peers.
To enter into a world where you are the superhero, join Darlene in one of her Pilates classes, and also interact with her and her motivational team on the Facebook page, Pilates Mama Restoration & Transformation.
Born in Newport Beach, CA, Kristi’s always had an enthusiasm for a healthy and active lifestyle. From running the beaches, to dance and competition teams, to following her older brother around the gym, seeking ways to master the art of fitness. Her love for such a fit lifestyle continued with her as she had her 3 children, now 13, 17 and 20 years old.
Kristi’s passion continues to be a source of balance, peace and inner strength as she moved to Utah in late 2017. Her interests continue to develop with her love for the beautiful outdoors, hiking, kayaking, river tubing and all kinds of new adventures and exploring. Some of Kristi’s other hobbies include dance, music, reading and of course, fitness and nutrition.
Kristi has been a practicing certified personal trainer and certified group fitness instructor for over 9 years. Her over 7 years of TRX education and certifications resulted in the development and implementation of a very successful TRX program for one of the larger health clubs in Phoenix. Kristi is also a certified Schwinn cycle instructor and has extensive experience teaching TABATA, TRX, Cycle and a variety of muscle classes.
Kristi’s training style focuses on core, strength, speed and endurance, mobility and toning.
“Through all of my life’s ups and downs, my fitness has always been my outlet and source of grounding and inner peace. It’s a deep mind and body connection where the external transformation is only a benefit of internal wholeness.”
Leslie Nease and her husband, Rod, moved to the Ogden, UT area in October of 2018 from the Greenville, SC area. Since then, she has tried snow skiing for the first time (she struggles getting out of the wedge, but she won’t quit), she’s tried climbing, she has gone snowmobiling, hiked dozens of trails through the mountains and completely fallen in love with the Wasatch Mountains!
Her love for fitness has been a life-long passion. She was a cheerleader in Jr and Sr High and through college. She started instructing fitness classes in 1994 and has taught just about everything you can imagine since then! Her favorite classes to teach (currently) are Barre Boxing, Strength Classes, Barre Pilates, Kickboxing, Core, Stretch and basically anything that gives a full-body workout with great music, fun people and high energy!
Leslie loves adventure and was a contestant on SURVIVOR: China in 2007. She didn’t make it super far in the game, but what she took from it far surpassed the million dollar prize, so she has no regrets!
When she’s not teaching fitness classes, hanging out with her pups or out on the trails, Leslie also has a radio show on SOS Radio in Las Vegas on Sundays from 11-3 (PST). She’s been in Christian Radio since 2004 and loves the way it allows her to encourage people through the airwaves.
Leslie strongly believes if you want to succeed in a healthy lifestyle, you need 3 things: commitment, consistency and community. She hopes to bring those three values to The Front!
Leslie and her husband Rod have 4 children, and are now empty nesters. As a matter of fact, her adult children are each in a different time zone! She’s new to the area and would love to meet you in class sometime, as she has a passion to build community here at The Front Group Fitness Program!
Tricia brings her passion for teaching and exercise to every client and class. She believes that participants at every level should feel welcomed. Her mantra is “Fit and heathy is a journey, not a destination.” While teaching for the past 17, years she has been active in training for half marathons, cycling, skiing, mountain biking and trail running. She understands that discipline and dedication are essential to fitness, and nutrition plays a key role as well. She is her own case study in increased strength and physical transformation. Tricia and her husband are raising their four children in Mountain Green.
