Conner Puckett, ISSA CPT

Originally from Gallatin, TN, Conner has been in the gym since he was a young teenager. He married his high school sweetheart in August of 2023.

Conner then began training and writing his own workout programs along with helping his friends and family and developed a deeper love for health and fitness. His passion and love for helping others stretches further than his family and friends in high school while playing sports, however. Conner had the privilege of helping coach strength and conditioning classes in Nicaragua on a mission trip where he spent 3 months in an internship. Wanting to live out his dreams, he has joined our family at Freedom Fitness 615 to help others achieve their goals and improving their quality of life. Whether in a class, or in private training, Conner will help provide you great results!
