In 2019 I found myself in an unhealthy state; mentally, emotionally and physically. I also had previous back issues that worsened into extreme pain. It was recommended to me to start a Health and Wellness plan.
I was introduced to Teresa and I decided to begin training with her on a weekly basis. It was the best decision I have ever made. Teresa is an instructor that provides diverse workouts that fit my personal needs recognizing some of my physical limitations. She motivates and gives encouragement to meet each challenge and pushes me to meet my goals.
I have been with Teresa for over a year and a half now. During this time my lab work has improved including lower cholesterol, triglycerides and Hgb A1C. I have better core strength and flexibility along with increased muscle mass. Although the journey was not about weight loss; it was a bonus having lost 30 pounds. The results I have achieved have left me feeling stronger and more confident.
Teresa retains degrees and certifications in many areas of health, exercise, and nutrition. Not only the knowledge, but also her compassion and kindness make her an amazing instructor and friend. She has helped me find the “healthier me”. Exercise is now a daily part of my life.
Thank you Teresa for changing my life.

I met Coach Teresa Brown in December 2022 following a meeting on mental health and wellness. I was intrigued by her personal story of perseverance. She is a personal trainer and fitness and nutrition coach. She designs personal training and fitness programs to fit individual needs. I wanted and needed a boost to my personal fitness regimen and after meeting and speaking with Coach T, I knew she was the perfect choice. No matter what your fitness level, Coach T can help you achieve your fitness goals.

I suffered a broken femur during a hip replacement last January. As a result, I have plates, screws etc. in 80% of my leg. I was still on a cane in November. While I completed PT, I was still very weak. Teresa has been working with me for 3 1/2 months, and my strength has improved so much giving me the ability to do yard work and other activities. She tweaks exercises to accomadate my limitations while still providing a very challenging workout. When I tweaked a shoulder muscle, she knew exactly how to work it and the muscles around it to aid in the healing, which was super quick. She KNOWS her stuff and motivates me to work even when my body doesn't want to. Thank you Teresa! (And the bonus is, I have a new friend.)
Fresh Focus Wellness. I can say so much about it. It is a place of no judgement as well as individual focus. Teresa is very knowledgeable in her field of expertise. She spends quality time with you to figure out what your needs wants and desires are to help you accomplish your goals. I promise you won’t be disappointed. 5 + stars!!!!
Probably Lexington's most knowledgeable trainer is Teresa Brown, owner of Fresh Focus Wellness. I've attempted to stop working out multiple times, but she has never bought into my reasons that I don't need a trainer yet because of my enormous frame. In today's society, we all require the uplifting energy and environment that this facility offers. She spends time learning about your goals, creates a thorough plan that takes into account your dietary needs, spiritual practices, and lifestyle choices, and, most importantly, she holds you accountable to yourself.
Because I'm currently unable to get on the floor, one of her tailored training sessions for me was created to meet me where I am in my fitness journey. She is trained to massage any tight muscles or injuries by taping you up as if you were a member of the UK basketball team. She is always mindful of your injuries and stresses.
In my life, I've worked out with quite a few trainers, but they were all commercialized and didn't even notice when I stopped going. This one is different because it's personalized and she will NOT allow you to let yourself down.
Fresh Focus Wellness is a new word to my vocabulary as well as a"New Action" in my life. Coach "T", has enhanced my every day living by designing exercises that has improved my mobility and agility. I shall continue this journey to enhance my health. I would like to encourage all: STOP, LOOK and LISTEN to your body and contact Coach "T". #FreshFocusWellness
Teresa Brown, Owner of Fresh Focus Wellness is a Certified Wellness Coach and knows what she's doing to put you on track for meeting your goals. She gets the results that you can literally see from before and after photos! She has helped me not only lose weight, but has also helped me to get my medications lowered and my A1C to 5.9, a number I haven't seen in years. I continue to work with Teresa because of her knowledge, compassion, and spirituality, not to mention I know that I will reach my ultimate goal of optimal health and wellness.

Fresh Focus is a perfect name for Teresa's fitness program. I first met her when I was at my chiropractor. I was wanting exercises to help with my core strength, balance, and posture. Dr. Nick felt working with her could help. It has been a great program for me. She talks with me about areas that I have pain and then focus's on those. I am not there for weight reduction but more for muscle toning and pain reduction. One of the best benefits I have found is something I did not expect: mental therapy. She is always positive and her love of Christ shows in how she treats you and how she conducts her business. We have discussed many topics during my training visits and I have told several friends that I not only get a good workout but also feel like I get spiritual nourishment as well.

I started my wellness journey with Teresa in August, 2019. As a 49 year old mother of two, I knew in order to lose weight I had to incorporate exercise into my busy lifestyle in addition to eating right; something I have never done before! In addition to the usual excuses of not having the extra time or money, I also struggled with putting myself first above my family. Now I realize this was the best decision for me and my family. I have lost over 40 lbs and besides feeling better, I have more energy and focus. When I first started exercising I could hardly walk on a treadmill without losing balance and now I can run on it. Looking back there have been many accomplishments. If you want a trainer who is knowledgeable in all aspects of physical training and can build the best exercise plan for you, but also be there for you emotionally and spiritually then Teresa is definitely the trainer for you! I truly believe I have the best trainer out there and am blessed God placed her in my life!

I was first introduced to Ms. T through my chiropractor's office. I was desperate to lose weight and joined a weight loss program. Ms. T was assigned as my trainer. After meeting her for the first time I was nervous, scared, and intimidated, but I was also very determined to reach my weight loss goal of losing 50 pounds. Eating right and working out with Ms. T helped me to achieve my goal in a year. The weight loss program is over, but I continue to work out with Ms. T, not only because I want to maintain my weight loss, but because I have other goals I would like to achieve. Working out with Ms. T has physically made me stronger, which is something I never would have dreamed of. I am mentally, physically, and emotionally stronger. A session with her can be physically challenging, but she also makes it fun. It truly is one of the highlights of my week. I would encourage anyone to schedule a workout session with Ms. T. You will not regret it!

What can I say! I have been struggling with my weight over the past year and needed help. I worked previously with Teresa at one of the chiropractic clinics and saw great results. I found myself gaining weight during COVID-19 and decided to return to her. I have always been impressed with Teresa's passion and knowledge as a Personal Trainer. She makes working out fun and challenging. I appreciate her desire to keep current with the changes in her trade. She takes the time to better improve her skills by enrolling in courses that will help improve her client's health. Teresa's not only concerned about the physical health of her clients but also about their emotional and spiritual well-being. She motivates and encourages me to take time for daily devotion. I also like the fact that she challenges me beyond the norm and doesn't to let my age become the center of attention. She knows my potential and expects me to reach it! I am confident that with Teresa's expertise and help, I will continue to improve my weight loss and health. Thank you Teresa for your professionalism and sensitivity to the needs of all your clients. I would strongly recommend Teresa to anyone needing a Personal Trainer.

My fitness journey with Teresa began over 2 years ago by participating in a Wellness Program at Revive Chiropractic Centers. Since then I have gained great respect for Teresa an a wellness coach. She plans workouts according to ones ability. Teresa keeps a watchful eye on you to make sure your form is correct for maximum benefit and to prevent injuries. She is definitely interested in your wellness journey. Teresa is a source of encouragement and I consider her to be a good friend.

Fresh Focus Wellness answered two questions I had for my health: What am I going to do and whom do I trust my fitness health care to?
When I became acquainted with Fresh Focus Wellness (FFW) I knew I was in good hands. See, I'm used to functional medicine care and although I am not taken care of by a functional meds doctor, I get the expected care at that level with FFW. FFW creates care plans that are customized to the individuals need just like a functional doctor. That answered my "What am I going to do."
Having previously worked with Teresa, I trusted her professionalism and am confident with my choice that I got the right one baby. Choosing FFW gave me a fresh focus and a professional that truly cares about my life and healthy living.

I have been working with Teresa Brown since February 2019. She is always pleasant and encouraging! Teresa continues to create interesting and challenging workouts to improve my body strength, flexibility, and overall health! Also of note, with her nutritional guidance and exercise plans, I lost 25 pounds and have kept most of it off!!! I would highly recommend anyone who wants to improve their overall health and fitness to work with Teresa Brown of Fresh Focus Wellness!

Ms. Teresa is a great motivator who's very knowledgeable about exercise science and how the body works. I have been very pleased with the creative workouts and personalized exercises. I highly recommend her as a coach for all shapes and sizes.

Teresa is absolutely amazing!! I have been trying to get into better shape for as long as I can remember. I was 27 and I was struggling to just live my life. I always felt lethargic and groggy, and I needed to drink multiple large Red Bulls just to make it through the day. I had fallen into the all too familiar cycle of sticking with a new workout routine, diet, or plan for a few weeks, then giving up when I didn’t see any results. This was a pattern that I repeated over and over for years, until I started working with Teresa.
I’m still not sure how she managed to do it, but she got me into running! - an activity that I never previously enjoyed, even when I was in what was the best shape of my life. We started out with running intervals, something that I found to be fun, this then turned into me running 3-4 miles daily! It has been such a blessing to work with someone who is so passionate and dedicated to what they do. We have sat down together multiple times to set my fitness goals (both short term and long term) and she is constantly pushing me to redefine what I think is possible for me.
In addition to this, Teresa has also transformed my perspective on food and nutrition. Instead of hopelessly counting calories and starving myself (as so many diets lead you to do), I now look to food as a source of FUEL and focus on eating foods that make my body feel good.
It has been just shy of 1 year of me working with Teresa and my life has transformed completely. I have lost over 25 lbs, I am regularly taking vitamins, and my energy has increased 10 fold. I am no longer drinking Red Bull and on some days I even opt for a black tea instead of coffee. I am working towards getting into the best shape of my life, and with Teresa’s support, guidance, and encouragement I have no doubt that I will get there!
Ms. Teresa Brown, lead trainer and owner, of Fresh Focus Wellness will give you a “fresh” outlook on your overall physical, spiritual, and weight loss journey. She provides individualized training and solutions to help you figure out how to make changes in your lifestyle. She is smart, has the education and credential, and the warm personality I need to overcome a life time of issues with food and exercise. Fresh Focus Wellness is more than a gym and Teresa is more than a trainer.

If you are looking for an individual that works at you reaching your goals then you have found the right place at fresh focus wellness.
- Teresa Forbes-Lopez
I started working with Teresa through my chiropractor. It was the 8 Weeks to Wellness Program. Working with Teresa was a welcoming change to my normal workout routine. She is really interested in your goals and will help you achieve them. She knows what she is doing and will guide you in the right way. She is a motivator and very inspirational. Teresa’s love of Christ is very present and most evident through her words and actions. If you are really looking to improve your mind, body, and spirit I recommend Ms. T. Brown to the highest degree.
