Lugo opened her studio, located at 773 Miamisburg Centerville Rd., in January when her personal training classes in her self-made garage gym became so popular she needed more space. 

“Opening this studio is proof that you can never dream too big,” Lugo told this news organization when the studio opened. “I’ve lost 150 lbs — went from working a desk job and now I’m a nationally recognized trainer who opened her dream location helping hundreds of women become better and healthier versions of themselves. Never dream too big!” 

The new version of The Biggest Loser will be hosted by Bob Harper, a trainer on the NBC reality series for 17 seasons.
