Brooke Holloman Certified Personal Trainer, CHROME, Spokane WA

Hello all!! I am the owner and proprietor of Chrome Personal Training Centre, Inc. This profession is MY LIFE. I am in my 17th year as a personal trainer and I am proud to say that I have dedicated my life to helping people achieve their goals.  
 
Growing up my love and focus was sports. I ran track and cross-country, but my love was basketball (played from 5th grade through college). A couple of years ago I also took up boxing and fell in love with it. There is no other workout like boxing, the intensity, the power, the contact... it is an amazing, invigorating rush!!! 
 
Jerell, my son, is a great athlete in his own right. It is so exciting to see how being brought up in the gym has made him such a happy, healthy, vibrant young man! He is a great football player and track athlete. Keep your eyes open for this kid in the future! Remember the name Jerell Holloman...
 
I received my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (the study of the movement of the body) from NNU in 2000 and a certified as a personal trainer. My education benefits me and my clients a great deal, but my EXPERIENCE is what makes me GREAT at what I do. There is something to be said about being able to relate to clients on many levels and that is why they trust me to get them to where they DESERVE to be! I specialize in everything. HAHA! I started out training athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness competitors, but as the years have passed my clientele has become a wide array of amazing people with VERY different goals. 
 
I am known as a "drill sergeant" for the fact that I "annihilate" my clients (regardless of fitness level). I am VERY TOUGH on my clients, but each one is guaranteed spectacular workouts. My clients receive 100% of my passion from the day they begin to work with me. I am a stickler on form (posture, alignment, correction of muscle imbalances) and I am very well versed in nutrition (NO diets!!!). I also despise excuses and can and will get around anything that a client throws at me. This is why my clients see RESULTS!!!!! Whether you are looking to lose fat, gain muscle, increase athletic performance, or just want to become healthier and more energetic, I look forward to hearing from you and kicking your butt!!!! ;)

Darrick Brown Certified Personal Trainer, CHROME Spokane, WA
Hi, my name is Darrick. If you are reading this, it only means that you have an interest in HEALTH AND FITNESS. Not only do you want to get in shape, but you want to stay in shape. I love every aspect of health and fitness. I enjoy sharing my views of it with others. I have been in and around the gym for 25+ years. I started weight training when I was a teenager and it has been an active part of my life since. I started weight training in 1993. I was only 116 lbs when I started. I was not strong by any means, but I was motivated and passionate enough to stick with weight training. In 1995, I did my first powerlifting competition. I placed 2nd in my weight class and 1st place the following year. As I put on more muscle, I gained greater strength. At my heaviest (238 lbs), I was unbeatable. I never thought I could lift so much, however, everytime I set a goal I would have to set another because I was reaching or surpassing those goals. Since I am such a competitive person health and fitness was not just a habit for me but a way of life. It consumed me for 17 years straight. I was in the gym twice a day, 5 days a week and I thought I knew everything there was to know. It was a hard pill to swallow when someone would show me something new. I had to quit acting like I knew everything. Once I got over that, that is when I started seeing better gains in both muscle mass and explosive power.   
 
If you don’t know what your doing in the gym it is easy to go in one big circle. You will run into over-training, under-training, suffering from unnecessary injuries or just a lack of motivation, whatever it may be.  I have been there, done that, and suffered them all. 
 
I hold current certifications in Personal Training, CPR/AED certifications. My certifications are not what makes me a GREAT trainer, my EXPERIENCE is what defines me as a trainer. My experience is what allows me to help others avoid making the same errors that I did 25+ years ago when first starting out. As a trainer I’m all about results. My job is to get you the results that you came to CHROME seeking. I am happy to announce that as an employee of CHROME I am in the BEST POSITION that I have ever been in to make that happen and also to share with you my knowledge, experience, and education. It truly is amazing what you think you know versus what you actually know when it comes to your health and fitness. 
 
Keep these things in mind: 
 1.  Its easier to stay in shape than it is to get into shape. 
 2. Its easier to keep up than it is to catch up. 
 3. Athletes are not born they are created. 
 
 If you just want to workout go to a gym, BUT if you want RESULTS come to CHROME.

Luke Prochnow, Certified Personal Trainer, CHROME Fitness Center, Spokane, WA

Hi, my name is Luke. I've been training since 1994, with an emphasis on bodybuilding since 1998. I started my serious studies in fitness in 2004, spending hours daily as my hobby became my life. While working in construction, I started creating more & more fitness and nutrition programs for friends and family. I decided to leave my full-time construction job to make less than a quarter of my wage, in pursuit of my dream and passion. In 2009, I became a full-time fitness professional.

I specialize in hypertrophy training (building of muscle), the hardest accomplishment in fitness. For anyone who is afraid of touching a weight, have no fear! Hypertrophy doesn’t come by accident. I also have excellent success with general weight loss. I have had clients who worked with other trainers for years with no results, but after training with me for as little as a month, have seen results above & beyond anything they have before. For any of you stabilization junkies, I can teach you the hardest and most technical stabilization exercises out there. Because of my size & agility, I have the capability to safely spot anyone.

In early 2012, I started training for competitive bodybuilding. In my second show, I qualified as a national level super heavyweight. At the same time, I brought in a girl in the Physique category for her second show, and she placed 1st, earning her national level status. I did all diet, training, posing and contest prep. Believe me when I say if you want to get lean, I can truly get you as lean as you want to be, and teach you the skills to maintain the body you have always wanted!

The greatest feeling of accomplishment for me is being that vital force in the transformation of lives. I pride myself in getting the most out of each & every workout with my clients. I promise without a doubt in my mind that when you train with me, I will take you past any kind of limits you thought you had, and beyond anything you thought possible. For example, I had a client yesterday who wanted to stop at 10 reps- she said she could not do one more. As I coached and encouraged her, she continued on to do a total of 50 reps all on her own. This is just one example of many. Wow, what a rush!! It feels fantastic to be able to make people realize they can accomplish a lot more, and that they are stronger than they ever could have imagined!

Laura Sicilia Certified Personal Trainer, CHROME Fitness Center, Spokane, WA

Hi, my name is Laura Sicilia. I have lived in Spokane my entire life.  My husband and I live and work on the North side, and are raising our two beautiful daughters here.  I am also a Licensed Massage Practitioner, and treat a lot of muscle imbalances and low back problems.  
 
Personal training with the right trainer can help you in so many ways.  I have always had a passion for fitness.  I want to help others grow to love it!  Health and fitness should always be incorporated into your life! I started training with Brooke Holloman about 2 ½ years ago.  I thought I was in shape until we went through one of her 30min. sessions.  I almost didn’t make it through the whole thing.  It opened my eyes to a whole new way of resistance training.  Since then I have ran ½ marathons and done many sprint triathlons.  I loved running!  In May 2011, I went through  back surgery.  I was devastated because it meant no more running.  I decided to not let that get me down.  I resumed my training with Brooke about 5 weeks after surgery, and am now in the best shape I have ever been!
 
As a Personal trainer I want to encourage others along the path of health and fitness and make them realize that all goals are attainable, but you must put the effort into it to get the reward.  No matter what your fitness level is I will train you to the best of your ability.  It might be hard sometimes but so worth it!

Eva Montgomery, Certified Personal Trainer, CHROME Fitness Center, Spokane, WA

Hi, My name is Eva. I became interested in fitness at a young age. I had a vision of my adult self as being an extremely healthy woman. I wanted to feel good and look even better. Another personal goal was to look and feel sexy without my clothes on. In the past five years I have been really pushing myself through periodization (progressive training cycle) and now hypertrophy (muscle mass training). I decided to do my first show September 2014 and placed 1st in Figure and 2nd in Physique! I am now training for the 2015 Emerald Cup. I am super excited and hope to do well.

I absolutely adore training. I love helping people obtain their goals. I am very particular about form, posture and foundation because I too, have had to put my goals aside due to a few different injuries in my life. It has been through fitness and nutrition that I have recovered from my injuries. I believe that in order to be happy in life you need to create your own balance. Luckily for me, health and fitness is something everyone can benefit from and I am ready for you!

Jeremy Templeton, Certified Personal Trainer, CHROME Fitness Center, Spokane, WA

Hi my name is Jeremy.  I am a 2009 graduate of Eastern Oregon University with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science.  I became certified as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist in the spring of 2010 and have been training ever since.  As a 2 year All-League basketball player at Ferris High School, I was recruited to continue playing in college and earned a scholarship.  During my 4 years competing at the college level I became the All-Time Career Assist and Steal Leader for EOU. 
 
I started working out regularly my senior year of high school.  I really enjoyed gaining strength and seeing the different changes my body was taking. What interested me in pursuing personal training were the differences in human bodies. Everyone’s body is different and everyone has their own unique story to their journey. The challenge we see as trainers are the initial behaviors people have and how we can overcome those bad behaviors to make better health choices. Hard work, dedication, and consistency are key if you want to achieve your health goals. Everyone has bad days, but those days where you don’t want do something or say you can’t, just remember that that’s the difference between you getting closer to your goals or further away.

When you join us as a client at Chrome, we will give you all the tools you need to succeed. Just remember, YOU have to commit yourself to the process.   YOUR life, YOUR journey. NO EXCUSES.

Why train with Bruce?

I am a straight shooter, ask anybody. I don't beat around the bush when it comes to providing feedback and results. If you need an ass-kicking in the gym, I will do it. If you need an ass-kicking for not following your diet, I will provide it.

When I train, I am focused on you, and what we are trying to accomplish that day or week. Too many times I have seen trainers in gyms that put their client on a piece of machinery and then not even pay attention to them. How is their form? Are they even working the muscles they are targeting? Is that even the RIGHT exercise for them to be doing???

I am also a goof-ball too, I have fun when we train. Its not all blood and sweat, you need to enjoy what we do AND get results. If the program is fun, provides results, and is easy to follow you will be more likely to stick with it long term and see the changes you want.

I have an extensive background in competitive bodybuilding which allows me to create a successful plan for all fitness types. I specialize in ALL fields and can develop a plan for any person looking to change. Whether you're getting ready for a bodybuilding, figure or fitness show, or if you are just wanting to lose body fat, I can develop a plan that will work for you!

Paula Taylor, Certified Personal Trainer, CHROME Fitness Center, Spokane WA
Hello there. My name is Paula Taylor. I have lived in the Spokane area for most of my life. My husband, Dave, and I have a beautiful home (that we built with our own hands) on 10 acres, North of town, where we have raised our five boys.

Love for fitness has always been in my heart but it wasn't until I became very ill that I realized how much I needed it just to LIVE. Within a three year timespan I underwent two brain surgeries, a back fusion, a cervical fusion and endured Bacterial Meningitis. I am well versed in chronic pain.

My diagnoses changed my world drastically and I was quite lost until I found CHROME seven years ago and enlisted the help of Brooke Holloman to help me get my health, body and mind in check! All these years later I am still here and better than ever.

My love for fitness has returned and I WILL NOT stop! Since my new beginning, I have competed in numerous Bikini and Figure competitions including placing top 5 in both National Level shows I competed in Summer 2016.

I have worked in Orthopedics for over 12 years as a Medical Assistant and completely enjoyed it. Recently, I felt it necessary to make a change. I truly feel that my love for health and fitness, coupled with my personal experience needs to be shared with others. It is my turn to be the teacher! I want to help educate those who have chronic pain and who have endured injuries, surgeries and other health issues.

Change is difficult, especially at 47 years of age, but it is so rewarding when lead by your personal experience and true passion. I am here and ready to help you! Let's work together towards your goals in a positive but challenging environment. See you soon!
