Gym Dog


Born in May 2016, Lucy joined us shortly after in July 2016.  Since then, she has been a staple in the gym stealing water bottles, greeting you at the door barking until you pet her, playing football, playing tug of war, napping and looking cute.

When you arrive at the gym you better pet her or she will follow you around barking until you do.





As a former state qualified swimmer who developed a love for weight lifting, personal training was a natural progression for Sam to turn her love of fitness into a career. Since then, she has participated in many bodybuilding shows in the Figure division, bringing home multiple first place trophies, as well as competing in nationals two years in a row. She also competed in many CrossFit and athletic competitions as well as 5k and 8k run for various charities.

Sam has had the pleasure of working with clients of all ages and fitness levels through one-on-one training, motivating them to push themselves beyond their personal limits.

As a highly accomplished Personal Trainer with 10 years experience in the health and fitness industry, Sam continues to pursue her passion to empower women as a leader on female training.

As a 4Balance Fitness OG trainer, she works with clients to develop a sustainable meal plan to complement their individualized program, thereby ensuring a customized plan for success!

Away from the gym she raises her two daughters and step son and enjoys hobbies of woodworking and crafts. She also homeschools her oldest daughter. Sam understands the struggles busy parents have with trying to balance work/ home life/and their own personal needs.

Allison Cole



As a Registered Nurse, personal training was a natural progression for Allison to turn her love of fitness into a career.

Helping others has always been a passion for Allison.  For the last decade she has worked as a registered nurse with the Greenville Hospital System and Greenville County Schools.  A few years ago, she fell in love with weight lifting (and Michael), and realized she could help others in a different way.  By empowering them to reach their fitness goals and improve their quality of life.

In 2022, Allison decided to change careers and now fills her day with the pleasure of training clients with her bubbly personality.  She loves motivating them to push themselves beyond their personal limits, whether that’s dropping baby weight or competing in a bodybuilding competition.

Allison is a mom, wife, trainer, business owner, and fitness competitor. She enjoys cooking and finding new recipes to share with 4Balance Fitness clients.

Michael Cole

Co-Owner/Head trainer/Fitness Ninja


Michael is the co-owner/operator of 4Balance Fitness with extensive knowledge and experience in training everyone: from the high level athlete to the soccer mom.

Michael’s lifelong desire to be healthy and fit started early in life when his father purchased a weight set at age 5. That action led him to start watching fitness programs on ESPN at age 8. He competed as a two sport athlete in football and baseball until injuries forced him off the field while studying Health and Exercise Science at Furman University. He began working in gyms learning different training styles, theories, business practices and putting his education to work. Michael then obtained an associates degree as a Licensed Massage Therapist and began working in the physical therapy field assisting in patient rehabilitation.

When injuries ended his playing career, a competitive void needed to be filled. He filled this void by entering the sports entertainment industry. In 12 years as a professional wrestler, he has wrestled for the WWE, TNA(Murphy), NWA and Puerto Rico’s IWA(Mikael Judas). While traveling as a professional wrestler, Michael received his Bachelors in Science in Nutrition Science from Kaplan University, which he uses to counsel 4Balance clients. He draws upon his diverse experiences and athletic background when constructing the 4Balance workouts, be it for the popular group fitness classes or personal training. Michael works with a wide variety of clients, however his passion is pushing an Average Joe to set personal records because “anyone can train a Division I athlete”.

Due to his diverse experiences, Michael is able to bring a unique understanding of people, goal setting, achievement, and motivation to his coaching. He knows achieving one’s goals in health and fitness can be difficult, but believes anything is possible with the right resources, programming, and motivation. With an eclectic background and rich steeping in fitness and nutrition, Michael is able to coach a variety of clients with phenomenal results. He brings an understanding of teamwork, motivation and goal setting/completion to his coaching with remarkable results.
