Eve Hesselroth, Owner of Clay Fitness, Certified Personal Trainer (CPT)
Eve started her fitness journey with yoga in 1998 in Austin, TX. After graduating from UVA, she spent several years at a desk job in human resources and wanted to get fit and healthy before starting a family. Practicing hatha yoga through two pregnancies and post-partum, she was hooked. She turned to a serious 5-year vinyasa practice, which ended with a hip injury, a years-long recovery, and a new-found respect for not ignoring your body’s cues.
The road to recovery took Eve from physical therapy to massage and chiropractic help, back to physical therapy and prolotherapy and finally to personal training and Clay Fitness in 2009. There she worked with Hyam Hosny, former owner of Clay and trainer extraordinaire. Hyam not only helped strengthen Eve’s hip, but got her started on the path to ever higher levels of fitness, and a passion for fitness and wellness.
Whether training for and competing in her first sprint triathlon and first Crossfit competition, or attending multiple fitness retreats in Jamaica, Eve has thrown herself into every fitness pursuit. She has watched herself get stronger, healthier and fitter every year. She steps into the role of owner of Clay Fitness inspired to bring this same experience to clients trying to set and reach goals of their own. Eve received her personal training certification (CPT) through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine).
