EMILY HALSETH

Membership Coordinator

Hey there! My name is Emily Halseth and I am the Membership Coordinator for Freewater Fitness. I began my journey here back in August of 2017 as one of the first members to join the gym. I loved the friendly atmosphere and really felt at home for the first time ever in the gym. One year later in August 2018 I joined the team. I love welcoming new members into our gym and helping them begin their journeys with fitness. I have two boys that often help out with towels and watering the flowers! My favorite piece of equipment at the gym is the rowing machine!

NORM SAAGER

Owner

Norm Saager is the founder and owner of Freewater Fitness. He started this gym in Milton-Freewater five years ago to answer a need for the citizens of the community. The long drives to and from Walla Walla makes it difficult and expensive to workout. Also, seniors need a safe facility, protected from the elements that caters to their general fitness needs.

Dr. Saager is a lifelong fitness fanatic— bike riding, skiing, hiking, kayaking, pickle balling and gardening. He loves the Northwest and all the recreation it affords. He loves the community— striving to make it a better place to live, raise a family, work out and retire.

Manager

Kelsie is a Milton-Freewater native with a passion for the fitness industry and the people of her community. Growing up playing a variety of sports, a weight room injury in early high school resulted in her being in Physical Therapy 3-5 days a week and the inspiration for helping herself and others, through exercise, sparked. Kelsie went on to play softball for Walla Walla Community College where she obtained her AA Degree and then continued her softball career at Western Oregon University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science with a Minor in Sports Leadership.

Kelsie became a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine in 2015 and has developed a philosophy of: “prehab” through appropriate exercise. Keeping the body strong and balanced through stretching and lifting weights will keep her clients injury and pain free while achieving their specific goals.

Her passion for helping a variety of individuals reach their fitness goals includes: weight loss, strength gain, mobility and flexibility, preparation for surgery, post surgical (post acute clinical physical therapy) rehab, and athletic development.

When Kelsie is not busy at the gym with her own work outs and Personal Training clients she enjoys everything being a wife and mother entails. She is also the third generation owner/operator of Didion Peony Gardens in Milton-Freewater. You can find her and her family outdoors in every season: hunting, fishing, playing softball and golf , gardening, playing with their 2 dogs and exploring in mountains.
