Artemis "arti" Xyderis
I struggled with weight and depression for most of my life. I began working out on a regular basis and found it nearly impossible to stay motivated. I kept stopping and restarting. I began joining group fitness classes, small group training and sports training teams. I found that the key to success is a strong support system. Having a “family” there to support you, encourage you and refuse to allow you to quit is one of the most important ways to achieve success.
I spent the past several years as a proud “gym rat”, focusing on training and allowing my gym family to support me. The skills that I have built has helped me to conquer my depression and increase my self-appreciation. My journey lead me to become a certified 200 hour yoga teacher, specializing in vinyasa, yin yoga and yoga sculpt. I joined the Total Fitness family in July 2021 as a Group Fitness instructor and I love the opportunity to help others transform themselves – both physically and mentally.
Class Style: Arti’s Bootcamp style is fun, engaging and creative! She will push you as much as you want to be pushed…and a little bit more! Dive in to fitness with Arti !
Like most women, I struggle with my weight, and working out is my therapy. It has taken a long time for me to understand how good working out is for you. When I work out, I feel good. When I work out, I eat healthier. When I work out, my mood is better. When I work out, I am just better all around.
I am an accountant and sit at a desk most days, so working out before starting my day is the only way to be. I love numbers and creating spreadsheets, but I love them more after a good workout. I joined Total Fitness to keep my activities going, and I would like to help others do the same.
Class Style: Rachel’s style of class is cross between HIIT/Circuit Training. Her class is a rigorous interval training sequence with high-intensity workouts. She will push you to work hard, and she will most definitely make you sweat. She also works out alongside you and the others to help everyone stay motivated.

Class Style: Sabrina specializes in H.I.I.T. and Bootcamp style group fitness classes with a focus in functional fitness.
our giving heart
Total Fitness at South River is committed to serving our community and youth through various philanthropic activities. In 2021, we began partnering with AACPS to support youth who are developmentally delayed to build their vocational and social skills through the Enclave Training Program at South River High School. We are so grateful for the opportunity to support our youth to learn trade skills that will help them for years to come.
