Here at Crystal Coast Wellness and Performance Center we aren’t about the quick fix, the new fad, or the next best thing.  We refuse to make promises we are unable to keep.  We aren’t here to offer false hope or make outrageous claims that are impossible to deliver.  We don’t have all the answers and aren’t afraid to admit it.  In an industry tainted with false promises, misleading claims, and “experts” out to make money at the expense of others we aim to offer an alternative.  

Crystal Coast Wellness and Performance Center is a health and wellness facility built upon honesty, transparency, passion, and faith.  We opened our facility to provide guidance, support, and inspiration while empowering our clients to take control of their health.  Using science-based principles, we help our clients move better, feel better, and look better.  We believe our clients success is the most important indicator of our success as professionals.   We refuse to compromise and expect our clients to do the same.

Your health and wellness journey is unique to you and while it won’t be easy, it will be worth it. Our health and wellness professionals will create a customized plan designed to help you reach your individual goals while providing education and support to keep you on track.  We won’t ask you to do it alone but we will ask you to trust the process and put in the work.  At Crystal Coast Wellness, excuses are turned into possibilities and obstacles can be overcome.

We could list all the ways that we are different from our competitors, like how our health and wellness professionals all have a minimum of a 4-year degree as well as certifications from the top certifying bodies in the country or the fact that we have state of the art equipment in order to provide the best care to our clients, but we’d rather show you.   We are here for you when you are ready to commit to taking the next step in improving your health.       


The professionals at Crystal Coast Wellness all have a minimum of a bachelors degree in an exercise related field, which means they have the knowledge and expertise to guide you in reaching your health and fitness goals. In addition, each trainer has sat for and passed the exam to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) via the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), one of the most respected certifying organizations in our field. Each member of our staff has unique qualifications that truly make Crystal Coast Wellness your one stop shop for all things health and wellness.

Jayme Limbaugh   Co-owner and founder of Crystal Coast Wellness and Performance Center  Jayme grew up in New Bern before attending ECU for a BS in Exercise Science. During her time at ECU she was required to complete an internship so she went to Savannah GA. She loved Savannah so much she decided to complete her graduate work at Georgia Southern to receive a Masters in Sports Medicine. While completing her graduate work she met Ken, who was in the same program. They were married a few years later and relocated to the Crystal Coast to open Anytime Fitness. Eventually Jayme felt we needed a Dietitian, so she recently completed her second bachelors degree in nutrition. When Jayme isn’t studying she is playing with her two children Jackson and Max. Currently she is really into weight training and has her sights set some competitions in the near future. She believes each client is unique and requires specific nutrition needs, especially when it comes to incorporating current exercise and activity levels.

Pauline Juhle PT, MPT, OCS, CSCS, CSPS   Co-owner and founder of Crystal Coast Wellness and Performance Center  Originally from Georgia (but secretly a beach bum my entire life), after participating in a surf camp in 2007 I fell in love with the Crystal Coast and decided to make a permanent move so that I could live where I once only vacationed.  With a BS in Biology from Georgia Tech and a Master’s in Physical Therapy from Georgia State University, you could say that I’m a complete nerd and you would be correct. I’m fascinated by the human body and love using this passion to help others move better so that they can ultimately feel better. Movement matters and a strong foundation with proper body mechanics is the key to longevity.  When I’m not geeking out over science or immersed in a book (if you need recommendations, I have plenty!) then you’ll either find me running, lifting weights, relaxing on the beach, or in my kitchen. Or maybe taking a nap - I like those too.

Derrick Hutchinson CSCS, NSCA-CPT   Head Personal Trainer, Strength Coach  I have been with CCW since July of 2018 after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a degree in kinesiology. My passion for movement and exercise led me to obtain my Certified Personal Training accreditation, closely followed by my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist accreditation. I enjoy working with people from all backgrounds and have experience working with individuals of all ages ranging from the novice to the experienced weight lifter. I believe that each and every person should be evaluated individually and should have personalized training programs based on their previous experience, medical history, and goals. My goals for the future are to return to graduate school for Physical Therapy to continue my education and help improve the quality of life of my clients with exercise directed towards longevity.

Amanda Mills, CSCS   Personal Trainer, Strength Coach  When asked to describe myself I always say I like the simple things in life. I like reading a good book, eating good food, working out, and being outdoors. That pretty much sums up who I am.  I grew up in a military family, so much of my childhood was spent bouncing around from place to place before we settled in Havelock, North Carolina. I graduated from Havelock High School in 2011 where the majority of my time was spent playing soccer as I had been playing competitively since the age of 12. After high school, I went to community college before transferring to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where I received my Bachelors in Exercise Science with a minor in Psychology. While in college, I continued to play soccer and eventually found my way into the world of CrossFit. I completed my senior internship at CrossFit Reignited where I worked until I graduating in May of 2016.  After college, I pursued my Certified Strength and Conditioning accreditation, which I received in February of 2019. I began working at Crystal Coast Wellness and Performance shortly after while also continuing to work as a physical therapy technician at Breakthrough Physical Therapy. I’m currently pursuing my Masters of Science in Human Performance with a concentration in Strength and Conditioning through Liberty University.  When not at the Performance Center or working on school, I like to spend time outdoors hiking or being at the beach. I also love reading, spending time with my pets, and traveling with my boyfriend and friends.

My Aunt Janet is a breast cancer survivor for over 13 years. She is the reason I became an oncology massage therapist. She told me how beneficial it was to get a massage and see a physical therapist twice a month.
