Personal Trainer and Pilates Instructor
Gia Palacorolla moved to the Outer Banks from Ellicott City, MD in 2013. She studied Human Nutrition, Foods & Exercise with an emphasis in Exercise and Health Promotion at Virginia Tech and proceeded to put that knowledge to work within various employee engagements within the VT Intramural & Sport Clubs departments, YMCA of Edinboro, PA and Cary, NC. In addition to her education, Gia's love for business and entrepreneurial spirit led her to various start-ups & management positions outside of her industry.
Passionate about the water, the move to the OBX was a natural fit! No single approach works for all, and therefore Gia is continually stimulated by accredited continuing education programs led by American College of Sports Medicine, Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, Spinning Indoor Cycling, etc. In 2015, Gia was accepted into The Pure Classical Method of Pilates apprenticeship...a true gift to bring home to the OBX to be enjoyed by anyone at any age!
In her free time, Gia loves to go boating or anything outside for that matter.
Grateful for the connections made with her clients, Gia takes even further satisfaction in witnessing clients, & members alike, blossom in both mind and body...resulting in healthier perceptions of themselves and strengthened relationships!
ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor
My name is Jennifer Dixon. I am a new Group Fitness Instructor here at Westside and I am extremely excited to be part of the Westside family! I started my personal fitness journey over a decade ago after having my daughter and have never looked back! About a year ago I started helping some of my amazing friends on their fitness paths. It was those truly wonderful friends who encouraged me to become a certified trainer and supported me throughout the process. I am super eager to meet, encourage, and to help motivate each of you toward a bigger, better, and healthier lifestyle!
