Alive & Well was created by Janet Archibald after years of working as a personal trainer in big box gyms. During that experience, Janet saw a pressing need to come up with a more personalized and convenient way of helping her clients get healthy so she left the gym and set out to create just that.

Our Mission

Alive & Well is an integrative personal training company that teaches our clients how to use exercise as a tool to feel great, be healthier, and live the life they want to live. We are dedicated to changing the perception of what healthy looks like by helping our clients develop a positive relationship with exercise through a fun, effective and empowering fitness experience.

Create Opportunity

We are committed to helping you create moments in the day where you can step away from stress and shift your focus towards doing something positive for yourself.

Instill Confidence

We want you to walk away from every session feeling strong, confident, and comfortable in your body, regardless of where you start out on the athletic spectrum.

Be a Resource

A core part of our values is to be authentic and open with our clients to provide you with real tools to stay healthy and continue succeeding well beyond your 60-minute workout.

Inspire Passion

It’s important to enjoy the things we fill our days with, which is why we create an atmosphere that encourages you to get excited about your workouts and your commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

  • "I have tried working out on my own and have always given up when I didn't see the results I wanted. I can tell you, working out with Alive and Well has been awesome. My trainer has made me focus on the parts of me that I can change, which has changed my perspective on working out."
