Discover Yellow Rose

We pride ourselves on not only providing world class group fitness, but also in creating a supportive and motivating environment. With our expert coaching and support community, we will find the right fitness journey for you. The moment you arrive at your first class you will find a community of like-minded people of all ages and body types, committed to working hard and achieving lasting fitness results. We love our people and we love what we do – and that shows on the gym floor.

People First. Fitness Follows

It’s no secret that being consistent with your fitness is difficult. Going it alone makes it 10X more difficult. To truly follow through on achieving our goals, we need coaches and friends to guide, motivate, and support us. Without these things, a fitness journey is too often cut short right after it begins. We’ve all seen it a thousand times. At Yellow Rose you will find an inspiring community of people who we are invested in your fitness journey from day one.

Nikolle Setley


Nikolle uses her ten years of experience in diverse gym environments to bring a unique perspective as a coach to Yellow Rose Fitness. Relying on human connection and honoring the individual’s unique experiences, Nikolle’s main focus is to use the gym environment to empower members outside of their one hour of fitness each day. If she can teach you how to harness the ability to do hard things in the gym and translate that mentality over to real life, she’s won the game. Outside of the gym, you can probably find Nikolle somewhere outside with her dogs or at home binge-watching a show she’s already seen 100 times.

He loves being able to now coach people and help them do things they originally never thought they could. Joe has been coaching at Yellow Rose since 2017, and always makes sure people have fun in his classes and get better!

If I can find the time to squeeze in my workouts, anyone can!”
