Garage gyms are a new trend in fitness and they’re booming in Navarre.

Shuping graduated from Navarre High School before earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and Nutrition at Florida State University. She has been running a garage gym since 2014 after resigning from a local gym.
“I lived at the gym, so it was taking me away from doing what I needed to do at home. Now I truly live at the gym and I can give to my clients and give to my family,” Shuping said of the switch.
