Who we are
At its core, Sapp's Fitness Garage reflects the experience, goals, and mindset of founder Donnie Sapp, a community-supporter, local consumer, and all-around friendly guy--with big muscles!
Donnie has been in the health and fitness industry for 37 years with expertise in personal training, bodybuilding, sports training, boxing fitness, and overall health and fitness. He is also an avid reader of books that improve positive thinking and successful mindsets. Some of his favorite books that guide his principles include The Bible, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, The Spirit of Leadership by Dr. Myles Munroe, and The Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer.
Telura, his wife, serves as his sidekick as she helps with various aspects of the business that include teaching fitness classes, holistic coaching, personal training, writing content, and helping Donnie improve services to our members. A long-time teacher in the public schools system, Telura has a natural calling for helping others and uses creative ways to teach. She is also certified by ISSA in Group Fitness, Nutrition Coaching, and Transformation Coaching.
