Our hard-working staff is dedicated to making sure you have a fun and safe learning experience.
Hey there! I am Joshua Roberts or as most know me, JRob! I am a graduate of Dutchtown High and moved to Baton Rouge in 2005. In June of 2012, I started my first GymFit class with 16 people. It has now grown into two locations with over 2000 members and multiple programs. It has been my dream for years to have a gym where everything is under one roof, and it has finally happened! I have been a gymnastics coach since 2012 with a specialty in body weight strength & conditioning. Over the last 7 years I have been teaching and training AcroYoga/Acrobatics, juggling and other Circus Arts! One thing that I have learned is that anyone and everyone is capable of learning something new, no matter your age or experience level! So come on out, step out of your box and try something different. You WON'T regret it!

David, the ring master himself, met Joshua through his original program while training for American Ninja Warrior. David competed in 3 seasons on ANW and now runs his very own circus called Bayou Cirque. Did we mention he also is a performer himself? David performs on Aerial Straps and Trapeze at the ripe age of 46! He is truly an inspiration showing that no matter how old you are, you are capable of "awesomeness". David is also a wonderful husband, father to 3 amazing children and a scout leader to many wonderful kids. He is a great asset to the team and cannot wait to help spread fitness, fun and "the awesomeness" for all to enjoy.
Monet has been involved with GymFit since 2015 and an employee since 2018. She started out as a camp counselor and quickly fell in love with all of the different circus arts, particularly aerial arts. She loves sharing her passion for aerial with kids and adults through teaching. Monet completed the training to become certified as an aerial silks instructor. She has also had the opportunity to perform all over Louisiana with GymFit’s sister company Bayou Cirque. Monet is so grateful for all of the opportunities that Gymfit has provided for her to learn new things and pursue what she loves. She loves sharing what she has learned with the community!
Aerial instructor and performer Monroe Ohlerking is proud to spread her love for aerial arts and fitness at GymFit. Monroe has been attending GymFit as a homeschool student for about 7 years and has been an instructor for 3. She was homeschooled until recently when she started taking college classes. Monroe found her passion in several physical activities such as trapeze, acro, straps, gymnastics, and silks or pretty much anything that gets her up in the air as a flyer. One of Monroe’s favorite things to perform is duo silks with her twin sister. She hopes to help kids and adults find their passion in the circus life as well!
