Elizabeth Robertson is a proud wife and mama to 3 children. Her passion for fitness started in 2012 as a new mom and wife. She wanted to be the best version of herself and fell in love with the process.

After establishing goals with her client, Liz will dedicate each training session to not only achieving these goals but pushing her clients beyond their comfort zone to realize their full potential and become the person they want to be. Our fitness is important and something we should all enjoy.

My name is Aimee Hoke and I’m excited to announce that I have joined the Brigade coaching family! I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself to the community and tell you just a little bit about myself, my family, and my fitness background.
I moved to Midland this last April to join my husband, Lance Hoke, from San Angelo where I owned Man Made Fitness, a full service fitness center. Lance has lived in Midland for several years where he has worked as a petroleum engineer for Conoco Phillips (previously Concho). We are Greenwood residents and we are very excited to welcome our son, Jude, in late July!
Growing up in the realm of competitive sporting fitness and wellness has been a constant in some capacity. I began nutrition counseling and strength and conditioning coaching ten years ago. I hold several certifications ranging from powerlifting, Olympic lifting, nutrition and pre/post natal exercise to mobility, gymnastics, strongman and rowing. I have a passion for movement and empowering others to move! I attended the University of Alabama where my study of focus was kinesiology and dietetics. I founded Man Made Fitness LLC in 2014, which I closed in March to relocate and join Lance. I competed in both powerlifting and Olympic lifting up until my pregnancy and I look forward to defending my state and national titles again soon!
I was thrilled to find Brigade and the amazing community within its walls! In addition to remote coaching I’m excited to begin private and small group training as well as nutrition coaching! I look forward to plugging into the community further!
