Brian Sneeringer

Instructor, Gettysburg Health & Fitness


Brian began working at Gettysburg Health & Fitness in 1999 welcoming guests at the front desk.  When Stef started a spinning class in 2006, Brian, an avid mountain biker since the early 90's, agreed to try it out.  Brian has been a certified instructor since 2006 and in 2009 decided to begin teaching using his own music and choreography.  Brian's fitness philosophy is pretty simple: "Enjoy kicking your own butt!" Brian likes utilizing intense motivational music and routines (and throws in a little fun of course) so people can push themselves further than they thought they could to maximize their workouts!

Megan Celucci

Megan is the mother of 3 boys and started "seriously" working out to drop baby weight after the birth of her second son.  Megan really loved Stef's aerobic classes because they really kept her motivated, so when Gettysburg Health & Fitness opened, she had to follow Stef!  Megan became a certified Les Mills RPM instructor five years ago when the training was offered after a friend and fellow instructor encouraged her.  Not only does Megan love the class but she enjoys the opportunity to meet great people and be paid to do something she loves!
