The background and training of our staff makes WK Fitness & Wellness Centers special. While some fitness centers are run by fitness enthusiasts who like to exercise, we believe our members deserve more. At our centers you’ll find men and women who are professionally trained in the methods and mechanics of fitness. They include American College of Sports Medicine certified Fitness Specialists and Clinical Exercise Physiologists with the academic training and knowledge to help members at every stage of their lives and health. And when you join, one of them will provide you with a customized fitness assessment and work with you to establish and reach your wellness goals.

Kijah, a native of Charleston, South Carolina, moved to Bossier when she was nine years old. She didn’t go far when she chose a college, attending Northwestern State University in Natchitoches to pursue a bachelor’s degree in health and exercise science. At Northwestern, she was a member of the Purple Pizzazz Pom Line, which sparked her love for fitness. The familiarity and diversity of the Shreveport-Bossier area made Willis-Knighton a perfect fit to begin her professional career. As an exercise specialist, Kijah focuses on motivation, encouraging fitness center members to push themselves. “My philosophy is ‘Never give up on yourself,” she says. “It may shock you the different heights you will reach when you don’t give up.”
All staff are academically and professionally trained to assist our members at all stages of life and health. Our fitness instructors have earned at least a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and strive to become certified by the American College of Sports Medicine.
Personal trainers are available at each fitness and wellness center to help motivate, direct and monitor you during your workout.
Fitness assessments are a major benefit of membership that help you track progress and meet your personal fitness and wellness goals. An expert staff member uses your assessment results and your personal goals to prescribe your individualized exercise program.
