Flight House Gym was founded by Jay Collins, his wife Nancy and his son Jack. Truly a family business from the start. They opened MaxEdge Fitness Training in Hampton NH in the fall of 2011 where they led innovative group workouts for people of every fitness level and ability, with class sizes ranging from a handful to over 120 people at once. It was at MaxEdge where they honed their craft of formulating a fun and unique fitness experience that undeniably improved the health, strength and conditioning of their members. After over a decade, thousands of group workouts and watching their community grow, they decided to take their product to a larger setting in which all the worlds of fitness and health can collide. Hence, Flight House was born! A gym for EVERY fitness enthusiast. A gym with tried and tested group fitness classes lead by experienced professionals in a fun environment but also a gym to use at one’s own desire, with all the state-of-the-art commercial equipment that would be suitable for any fitness goal.
Jill grew up in an athletic family where fitness was a priority. She always remained loyal to her roots, and decided to turn her passion into a career. Jill started off teaching yoga and then decided to add some strength training, which she fell in love with immediately. This led her to receive her Kettlebell Athletics Certification in 2021. Her background in yoga has helped her succeed in many ways, but especially when it comes to getting out of her own head to push through challenging workouts, and motivating others to do the same. Outside of the gym, you’ll often find Jill out exploring local trails, with a coffee in one hand and her pup’s leash in the other. She also has a passion for travel and trying/cooking new foods with her husband Joe. With a degree in videography, you’ll also see Jill around with her camera - now both in and out of the gym!Tiffany will tell you that her superpowers include asking curious questions, listening without judgment, problem solving and helping her clients uncover their best path to a life of confidence, health and happiness.

She has also worked alongside some of the top industry leaders in behavior change, nutrition, and recovery. It is through that experience that she saw, firsthand, what self- belief, trust and awareness can bring on the journey towards deep health, in all areas and dimensions of a person's life. She has spent 20+ years (and counting) in the fitness industry, as a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and nutrition coach, helping to educate and empower those she works with on how to improve their relationship with their bodies, food and movement.
