Fich­tel, a cer­ti­fied per­sonal trainer and fit­ness nu­tri­tion spe­cial­ist, is open­ing a yoga stu­dio in the Foothills on Oct. 2. It will be called The Saf­fron Stu­dio Yoga and Well­ness and will of­fer a va­ri­ety of yoga and fit­ness classes, in­clud­ing sev­eral Sil­verSneak­ers classes each week. Fich­tel is also a cer­ti­fied Sil­verSneak­ers in­struc­tor.

Fich­tel, who de­scribes her­self as a “Navy wife, mom of 2, an­i­mal lover, out­door en­thu­si­ast, lover of pizza,” said The Saf­fron Stu­dio was “born out of a de­sire to share my pas­sion for yoga and to­tal body well­ness through mind­ful­ness, fit­ness and whole food nu­tri­tion at ev­ery stage of life. My in­ten­tion is to cre­ate a tran­quil, lov­ing en­vi­ron­ment, where each stu­dent may ex­pe­ri­ence in­spi­ra­tional and heart­felt teach­ings, which foster mind­ful­ness and a con­nec­tion to com­mu­nity that will be car­ried for­ward out­side the stu­dio. “

The new stu­dio will be lo­cated in the Foothills Vil­lage at 11242 S. Foothills Blvd., Suite 8.

Owner/trainer Daniel Welch of­fers per­sonal train­ing as well as small group classes “in a FUN and wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment with work­outs that will help you tone up … We strive to pro­vide a friendly, safe en­vi­ron­ment that en­cour­ages people to push past their per­ceived men­tal lim­its.”

He’s also of­fer­ing a pro­gram for kids.

Welsh says his own story led to open­ing the gym. “I was 220 pounds. I was over­weight, de­pressed, and ex­tremely in­se­cure with who I was. I went down a path of self de­struc­tive be­hav­ior, and some­where along the way I dis­cov­ered Cross­fit. I de­cided that it was time, I had to change my life.”

He started eat­ing healthy and work­ing out on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. “I found that eat­ing healthy and work­ing out made me hap­pier. I found con­fi­dence, and it re­lieved my stress. It changed my life and pos­si­bly saved my life.”

He’s cur­rently 170 pounds and health­ier than he has been in years.

“It has been a hard, men­tal­ity test­ing jour­ney up to this point. My health jour­ney con­tin­ues as does ev­ery­one’s. From what I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced and been through, my goal is to help you achieve yours. Open­ing this gym was meant for chang­ing lives, one per­son at a time,” he pledged.

“I prom­ise you that if you make the de­ci­sion to change, noth­ing can stand in your way.”
