Valerie Bolin Poile is a personal trainer based in Nashville, TN. She teaches at Krank Nashville, The Green Hills YMCA and is an owner/trainer at VB Fitness. She caught the fitness bug at the age of 5 when her mother enrolled her in gymnastics due to her extremely clumsy nature. After only a few short months she was cart wheeling, walking on her hands and spent most of her years as a child upside down in competitive gymnastics. Valerie began instructing group fitness classes in her senior year at Belmont and never dreamed she’d still be teaching and personal training 16 years later. For her, when the music and class comes together there’s no better feeling, she explains, "so much energy engulfs the room when you have people working together towards one common goal. It’s rewarding for me to lift someone’s spirit, improve his or her body composition or help boost his or her confidence. I am very fortunate that a healthy lifestyle started early for me…but I have also found in my years as a fitness educator that it is never too late to start. My passion is sharing my commitment with others and to help them learn that being in great shape is more than just having a good body.….you will become happier, healthier and feel better prepared for what the day might bring."
