My wife and I took the Vinyasa Flow with Sam...great class! Excellent flow with many pose options offered.
Let’s meet Performance Locker Founder and Director of Movement
Casey Stutzman. Casey is an ACE, AFAA and FMS Certified Personal
Trainer and has professionally worked in the fitness industry for
more than 10 years.
A former division 1 collegiate football player, natural bodybuilding and strongman competitor, triathlete, Tough Mudder participant, and distance runner, Casey has experienced the entire spectrum of fitness training and competition. He has learned through his education, training, and personal experiences that traditional training methods don’t properly or safely care for the body as a whole unit. As a result of questioning this status quo he is now a Functional Movement practitioner and shares this transformational knowledge with his hometown clients and fitness professionals across the country.
On the national scene Casey is known for his roles as a TRX Master Instructor, Ignite 360 Master Trainer, and is part of the development team for the new Surge functional performance tool from Headstrom fitness, the makers of BOSU performance equipment. Casey periodically travels across North America to teach certification courses and is a presenter at national and international fitness conferences. What he enjoys most about these roles is the opportunity to educate and connect with other fitness professionals to develop a greater understanding of the importance of functional methodologies in the fitness world. These experiences also give Casey a chance to learn from the best and brightest leaders in the industry. Through these opportunities Casey has had the privilege to work side-by-side with fitness icons Fraser Quelch, Peter Twist, Randy Hetrick, the world class strength and conditioning team at IMG Academies, and many others who have been instrumental in developing Casey’s philosophies on movement, fitness, injury prevention and lifestyle improvement.
As a result, the Performance Locker is a passionate collection of skilled training, life experience, scientific methodologies, and dreams. When Casey began to organize a plan to build the Performance Locker he started with the simple goal of wanting to help people live more active and fulfilling lives with the help of training that is anchored on sound mental and anatomical strategy and education so people understand why and what they are doing so as to inspire positive and lasting lifestyle change. Performance Locker is deeply grounded with 6 core value areas: Personal Training & Nutrition, Mind/Body Awareness & Science-based Education, and Outdoor Recreation & Community Involvement. If it doesn’t relate to one of these 6 value areas, you won’t find it at the Performance Locker. Casey believes that whether you sit at a desk for most of the day, or run marathons (or both), your fitness and nutrition formula is as unique to you as your DNA. Performance Locker provides you the expertise and tools to balance your personal equation and build a life without limits.
You can also bet that Casey has peppered the Performance Locker with his personal flair which will include a few Led Zeppelin-heavy playlists, probably more than a dozen Batman comic references, and a healthy serving of outdoor adventure in our beautiful Alpena. He and his wife Mary Beth enjoy life with their daughter Vesper and son Indiana and Turkish the family mascot dog. To unwind Casey enjoys reading personal development books, archery and hunting, watching James Bond movies, and of course … listening to a lot of Led Zeppelin.
