lifelong fitness that fits.

oh yeah,
we’ve been there.

Ladies and gents, it’s chaos out there in that food fad, workout trend, all-pain-no-gain culture. We know the frustrations of ineffective programs and unrealistic expectations, so we’ve created a new, customized, holistic approach to fitness.

did I pay a membership
fee for this?

Between the thump-thump of the bad music, the thought of other people’s sweat and the hollering of drill-sergeant-like trainers, it’s hard to love gym culture. Luckily, with Happy Human, you don’t have to (you can thank us later).

there’s a way,
way better way.

You can think of Happy Human as a fresh new way to achieve your health and fitness goals—one that is full of all the stuff you like, and none of the stuff you don’t. One that is based on proven results, not crazes or fads. One that works around your goals, strengths and schedule, not the other way around. Sounds refreshing, doesn’t it?

but enough about us, let’s talk about you.


your game-changers.

Happy Human trainers aren’t just any trainers. They’re, well, how would we describe them? Overachievers? Incredibly compassionate? Total nerds about their profession? How about, all of the above.

Our trainers are carefully selected, not just by their resume and accomplishments, but by their personality and vibe.  So, everyone who’s part of the Happy Human team isn’t just good at what they do, they are great listeners, problem-solvers and just plain good to be around, too.

Expertise? Experience?  Many of our Happy Human trainers have over a decade of client experience, most hold four-year degrees in fitness-related fields, and every last one of them is passionate and curious. They are willing to go the extra mile to help you solve whatever it is you’re trying to crack.


nice to meet you.

Happy Human was founded by two, well, rather happy humans – Amber and Jesse. We started the company in 2012.  

Since then, we’ve rebranded, learned a ton, and made some great new friends.  Through it all we’ve kept the focus on making sure every client we touch loves life a little bit more as a result.


We met in the world of professional dance in Minneapolis before attending grad school together.  Jesse, a studier of choreography and Amber, a kinesiology student (kinesiology = fancy term for the study of functional human movement).

We met, flirted, got married in 2007, had a baby boy, had another baby boy, and never lost our shared love for health, fitness, and movement.

Happy Human came about as a way to bring a fresh, new, sustainable approach to health and fitness.  One that wasn’t based in corporate gyms, treadmills, body image problems, and the peddling of snake oil.  

The message of Happy Human is finding fitness at home, in your yard, with your kids, in the way you move and in the way you think.  We love what we do and we can’t wait to share more of our story with you.

you ready? you look ready.

yep, you’re definitely ready.
