Our Management and Member Services Team
Our management team is carefully chosen - not only based upon their knowledge, background and experience but also based upon their proven customer service skills. Membership at Hearthstone should feel like joining a large, extended family.
Our belief is that the fitness industry is similar to the hospitality industry. Members and guests need to be welcomed with each visit and thanked, repeatedly, for their business and loyalty. It takes a special breed of individual who can truly empathize with people and make them feel special. We think our team is second-to-none and believe that you will agree with us after just your first visit.

Throughout his life, Dave has battled weight issues, Type 2 Diabetes, Crohn’s Disease, high blood pressure, and asthma. He tried just about every diet remedy on the market, all coupled with a wide variety of exercise programs, none of which seemed to have a dramatic effect on his overall health. In December 2010, he began a life-changing journey to regain his health, which involved finding the right combination of physician, personal trainer and nutritionist that would work as a team to support Dave in meeting his goals.

College of William + Mary
Martha personally understands what progress in the areas of health and fitness means through her own experiences. As a senior level executive for a global management consulting and technology company, she spent round-the-clock days focusing on her work but not necessarily herself. She gained weight over a period of many years and found that exercise and standard yo-yo dieting simply did not work anymore. Further, she wrestled with a number of medical issues and knew her family history of heart disease was a risk factor not to be ignored. Determined to both take control and find more balance in her life, she started a combination fitness and nutrition program. She successfully lost over 30 pounds, and has kept the weight off since the spring of 2011.
