“Hey there! I am Coach Carrie Vernon …aka, Spicy Pants! I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness instructor, a mom of two, wife, small business owner and fitness is my priority!  I call it sweat therapy and truly believe it is the most important and proven way to stay mentally and physically healthy.  I moved back to this area 6 years ago 30 lbs heavier and in need of a change.  I worked in IT for 18 years and it was just not my calling.  Since becoming an instructor and Personal Trainer, I have had a front row seat to some seriously amazing transformations in some seriously amazing humans.  It is the most rewarding job and allowing people a platform to find the strength they have always had inside is a gift that I am honored to provide!  Everyone, no matter your age, activity level or stage in life, you have the ability to make a change.  All it takes it is one small step and I am honored to be a part of a team that provides the safe and encouraging environment to make that step.  Come and join us!!!”


Mika Smith was a member at BOCO Fit Rage for two years before deciding that she wanted to become a part of the awesome coaching staff at the Rage House. Mika is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and enjoys all things fitness related! She was a 4-year collegiate softball player at Ferrum College and has always loved cheering on others. Although she does coach classes and does personal training on the side, her full-time career involves her being a giant science nerd. Her favorite exercises are burpees and pushups so be prepared to drop down and give her 20!!!


“Hey ya’ll! I am Mika Smith and I am a personal trainer and coach at BOCO Fit Rage! I was a member at this wonderful gym for two years before being inspired to join the amazing coaching staff. I have been coaching since January 2020 and am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. I enjoy all things fitness related especially when it involves being outdoors! BOCO Fit Rage truly is a one-of-a-kind gym in which I think everyone deserves to have a place where they can workout as a stress reliever but also come to fellowship with friends who become family. I love being able to help each individual get the most out of their workouts and cheer them on throughout the hour class (some may say my cheering sounds like yelling LOL). I mainly coach 515 AM and although it may be early, my bumpin’ playlist will get you hype and ready to take on the rest of you day!!! My favorite exercises are burpees and push-ups so if there is any time left at the end of class you can count on this girl to throw in some of those lovely moves!” 


“I am Jennifer Osborne and was born and raised in the Roanoke Valley. I graduated from Lord Botetourt High School, then received my bachelor’s degree in Biology from Roanoke College where I graduated in 2006. After college, I got a job as a zoo keeper at Mill Mountain Zoo. A hawk attack experience made me realize that was not the avenue for me. I spent several years working on my family’s farm helping my dad grow apples, peaches and produce. I decided to become a real estate agent in 2015 and have been doing it ever since and love helping make dreams come true! I have always loved working out and have been interested in fitness. Joining BOCO Fit Rage was the best thing for me several years ago. I have loved every workout there and became hooked! So happy to have joined the family there, they are the best!”
