Wellness Center Fitness Instructors and Trainers Biographies

Wellness Center Coordinator: Jacob Shaw, 618-465-3298 ext. 120 or 618-781-3332

I believe everyone can benefit from personal training.  Exercise prescriptions can be used to continue to recover and improve after injuries, to stave off the effects of many different illnesses, improve athletic performance, and to improve one’s confidence and body-image. I have a degree in both Biological Science and Exercise Science and I hope to help people from all walks of life with varying goals and ideals achieve success. Though I am very easy going in conversation, I train hard and expect the same from my clients.  Come discuss your goals with me!

Personal Trainer, Ryan Rauscher, 618-465-3298 Ext. 120 or 618-978-2747

I currently live in Alton, IL and I recently graduated from Southern Illinois University- Edwardsville with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science this May of 2016. I received my National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certification in November 2014. I started playing hockey when I was 4 years old and played until I graduated from SIUE for a total of 18 years for my hockey career. I started playing golf in the summer of 2015 and now consider that my dominate sport. I have always had a love for fitness and understanding how the body moves during exercise.

Personal Trainer, Dustin Heiser, 618-465-3298

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from St. Olaf College and I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the American Council of Exercise. I have a passion for helping others with their health through exercise and activity. My personal training experience spans over 4 years with a diverse clientele. I love working with people of all ages and all walks of life, from the competitive athlete to the growing senior population. As a Personal Trainer, my philosophy is functionality over vanity.  I want to improve my client’s health in all aspects of physical fitness. My emphasis of training clients is proprioception and balance, and the ability to control body position and movement.


Personal Trainer, Tyler Hubert, 618-465-3298 

I graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science. I have been interested in the fitness world ever since I started training for football in the 7th grade. I have since retired from football but will never retire from working out. I love helping people reach their goals because it makes them so happy which then makes me happy. I like to work with people of all ages but I really enjoy working with the retired population. There is never a dull day when you work with the older population!
