Bird is from a town called “Tha Thrill” (Rock Hill, SC), just outside of Charlotte, NC. He attended Clemson University where he played for the Clemson Rugby Squad. After graduation, he directed Camp Cherokee (a YMCA summer resident camp) for 8 years before pursuing a profession in fitness. Certified by ACE (American Council on Exercise) in 2006, he has ten years experience of training individuals, small groups, large bootcamps and professional athletes. Bird is further educated via his world adventures throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean. Along with traveling, his main hobbies include everything outdoors, people watching and food. He and his wife Beth just moved to Nashville last year and love it so far! Other endeavors that Bird has Co-Founded and still is involved with include: Camp LUCK, Inc. (Support organization for families that provides a resident camp and other services for kids with heart defects), SMOOTHISFAST (Apparel that benefits warriors battling cancer), and Baxter’s Bunch (Children’s book series and TV Pilot show that teaches good values through sports). Bird’s Fitness Philosophy is “You only have one body and one mind… so why not take care of them!” Training is not just about the physical improvements. I enjoy challenging the mental aspect of an exercise program that coincides with the most important trait - your Attitude! I am excited to be a part of the Orangetheory Fitness team as it is science based, full of good peeps and is fun/engaging!
Fury describes herself as an Air Force brat, but claims Atlanta, GA as her home town.

This is when she discovered her true passion, Roller Derby. Lady Fury has been skating with the Nashville Rollergirls for 10 years, which ultimately led to her love for fitness.
