Inside Transform Personal Training

Your Neighborhood Fitness Trainers

In 1984, The Crest originally opened in Wrightsville Beach on Lumina Ave. In 2002, Nick and Wanda Kentrolis took over ownership and soon after, relocated to the Lumina Commons Shopping Center. On February 17, 2021, Nick suffered a mycotic aneurysm rupture caused by a bacterial infection stemming from his gums with catastrophic hemorrhaging. This caused a stroke and endocarditis which led to open-heart surgery to replace his aortic heart valve and repair other damaged valves. After the extraordinary care from his medical team, an outpouring of support from our friends, members & family, and Nick’s incredible drive to return to his former strong self, he now has a clean bill of health from the cardiologist and neurologist. He is now offering personal fitness training programs at Transform Personal Training in Monkey Junction so he can continue to help change people’s lives through proper fitness training & nutrition The Crest offers “Classic” fitness programs based on exercise physiology, not marketing hype. Crest Fitness is your neighborhood fitness Training Program that will always treat you like family. His past and current certifications include: Exercise Specialist, NSCACPT, ACE, IFTA, TRX and Senior Fitness Specialist. We care about your success and your results and are here to help you succeed.
