As a personal trainer, Angela Sellers (who recently married and was formerly Angela Yong Wolff), offers a range of disciplines that keep her clients engaged, excited and in top physical condition.
In 2011, Sellers opened Fit Columbia, a versatile personalized training center on Devine Street that focuses on yoga, Pilates, martial arts, group fitness, speed and agility training, and strength and cardiovascular conditioning. Recently, Sellers relocated Fit Columbia to Blossom Street in Five Points, where she continues to instruct clients in the fitness center’s popular wall and hatha yoga, as well as yoga for cancer patients, pregnant women and new mothers.
On Thursday, June 30, Sellers and Fit Columbia host a “Women of Fitness” Garden Party and Benefit for Innersole, a local statewide nonprofit shoe drive for children co-founded by University of South Carolina women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley.
EAT: I love the farm-to-table movement and eating locally. Vanessa Bialobreski does a great job with these dinners. I also love Motor Supply and the Korean restaurants on Decker Boulevard.
DRINK: I love a double mocha at Drip, but the right answer should be water with lemon – stay hydrated, everyone!
PLAY: About three years ago, I was introduced to tennis, and it’s safe to say I’m addicted. I played college volleyball, so tennis was an easy transition. I love to be outdoors and physically active. If there’s an opportunity ... to compete in something, I want to do it – and win. I love Rockbridge Club. They always make people feel at home and welcome. The facilities are kept up and events well organized. Beyond sports, I love going to the theater and local art exhibits with my husband.
LISTEN: I listen to music that makes me calm or happy. I want to sing along and feel good about the world. Christian music, Van Morrison and Michael Jackson are commonly playing on my headphones.
SEE: Five Points has become a place I really enjoy, especially from the front window of my studio. I’m so proud of our city when I see the runners, skateboarders and walkers pass by my studio at all hours of the day. I love the people-watching, going in and out of the small shops. Five Points is home to a lot of small-business owners and I’m proud to be among them.
