Kevin Buffard- Fitness Trainer/Coach
Hi X30 FitFam
My name is Kevin Buffard. I’m originally from Lake Carmel, NY and i have also lived in Tucson, Az. I’ve been a PT and group instructor for 3 ½ years. I currently hold 8 certs and I am working on my 9th.
I have been into fitness since I was a kid and participated in school sports. From then on I wa fascinated by the benefits of fitness. At the age of 22 I began participating in MMA with a primary focus on boxing. I completed in an exhibition bout for an event called Fight Night where over 2,000 people were in attendance!!
Throughout the course of my life, I have endured some injuries that I have had to overcome through my dedication and commitment to fitness. I fully believe in the power of fitness because of what it has done for me and how I have been able to help others.
I am proud and honored to be a trainer on the X30 Fit team. My goal is to provide our members with the best possible experience I can deliver. I am committed to helping each and every member succeed and reach their goals. Part of my philosophy on training i that we should never stop creating new goals because our goals drive us to become better.
I am truly looking forward to building strong relationships with everyone at X30 Fit from staff to members!
Eric Thompson- FITNESS TRAINER/COACH
CRYSTAL SCHIDER- FITNESS TRAINER/COACH
Hi! My name is Crystal Schider. I am originally from Wisconsin, but I have lived several places inside the US as well as outside of the country. Fitness was a focal point early on in my life, and I also played various sports growing up. Fitness made me feel alive, and I always looked forward to my next workout. To this day, fitness invigorates my body and allows me to feel and think clearly. Fitness has given me direction in my life, and in turn I am able to pass on knowledge to others to help them live a more healthy and enriched life.
At an early age, fitness and the arts both peaked my interest and even though I have attained a bachelor’s of music from CCPA in Chicago, I still remained active with fitness. I went on to receive my Certified Group Fitness in 2012 from AFPA, and in 2013 I received my Certified Personal Trainer Certification. I have also studied and received several other fitness certifications because I believe in continuing education and growth. I feel I am a teacher and a lifelong student of fitness and healthy lifestyles. From being a music teacher, to group fitness classes and personal training sessions, teaching and instructing in one form or another has always been prominent in my life.
I am very excited to be joining the X30FIT Team! I love the family feel, and I like that every day the sessions are never the same. I believe in inspiring and motivating individuals to work harder today for a better today and a different tomorrow. Success and actions are inseparable. I am honored and thrilled to begin this journey with you!
Gregg Hudak- Fitness Trainer/coach
Greetings X30 FitFam! My name is Gregg Hudak. As a native of Rockville, MD and proud graduate of the great University of Maryland (Fear The Turtle!), my family (wife Karen and three daughters) and I have lived Sarasota for the past 11 years. Prior to settling in our beautiful city, I had the honor of serving our great country for 22 years and retired as a naval officer in 2007 (just in case you hear some refer to me as Commander, you’ll now know why!). While in the Navy, fitness was made a priority and truthfully, after retiring from the Navy, I personally let that priority slip and it showed both externally and internally. With a nudge from a friend, support from my wife and an introduction to X30FIT back in 2015, my commitment to health and fitness is now cemented in my daily living activities! As an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor, my goals at X30FIT are two-fold…help you achieve your fitness goals and in turn, have a fun experience in doing so! As a student of X30FIT, I can attest first-hand that the results that come from our classes are truly UNBEATABLE!

Their dedication to the clients inspired me to want to be a part of the team".

There is nothing more satisfying than helping someone achieve their goals! For them, it can be life changing – for me, I want to be part of their journey in helping them get there!”
