President & CEO
Cory Czepa’s life-long passion for fitness has evolved into his career and life purpose. Starting eleven years ago, Cory began helping others renew their commitment to fitness as he became a personal trainer specializing in post-rehabilitation, core stabilization, flexibility and stretching, functional training, postural retraining, nutrition and weight management.
Cory and his wife Sarah have built a successful in-home training and nutrition business, training clients in total body awareness and wellness. They also own a thriving health club in the Twin Cities area. In 2008 Cory started Live 2 B Healthy® Senior Fitness, and immediately saw compelling physical and emotional improvements across class participants of all ages and sizes. Using carefully selected stretches and exercise routines, Cory has designed the Live 2 B Healthy® Senior Fitness program to coax sedentary seniors into enjoyable social opportunities that allow them to stretch limbs and joints, while boosting both their physical health and quality of life.
