Personal Fitness

 At Rock Solid Families your fitness goals are our fitness goals. We're proud to offer fitness advice to individuals at any level. Whether you’re just starting out or training for your first marathon, we’re here to serve you.

Merrill Hutchinson has extensive training in personal and professional coaching and is a certified personal strength trainer. Merrill has taught biology, anatomy, and physiology, and holds a Master’s degree in school counseling. Merrill has strength-trained athletes in swimming, wrestling, and track.

After a neck surgery left him with some paralysis in his arm and shoulder in 2010, Merrill Hutchinson developed a piece of fitness/ strength equipment called The Finisher and a full body workout called Finishing. Finishing combines a low impact cardio workout with core strength training. Merrill , Linda and their team have been leading Finishing classes six days a week since 2012 and are excited to now bring the exercise of Finishing under the ministry of Rock Solid Families.

Team Building

Whether it's at home, at work or on the field, being a team player is a core value of Rock Solid Families. We work with individuals, couples and groups to teach the importance of collaboration, communication and trust to maintain strong and healthy relationships inside and outside the home. At Rock Solid Families, we challenge our clients to step outside their comfort zones to practice the principles of team building through the word of God. 

I appeal to you brothers in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.
1 Corinthians 1:10


Pastoral Support

Being a leader in ministry can be so rewarding, but it can also be very draining. Linda Hutchinson, Rock Solid’s Executive Director, and her husband Merrill have been in your shoes. After almost 20 years in church leadership, Linda stepped away in 2018 from her paid ministry position in the church to begin Rock Solid Families.

Merrill and Linda understand how difficult and isolating ministry can be and how weary church leaders and their families can get. Satan would love nothing more to come in and distract, divide, discourage, and destroy the amazing things God is doing through the Church. Which is why Rock Solid Families is committed to support and encourage church leaders, paid or unpaid, any way they can.

They believe Rock Solid church leaders help to develop Rock Solid families, churches and communities. They understand the exponential impact supporting and encouraging church leaders can have on the Kingdom.  This is why Rock Solid Families offers free, confidential coaching to paid and unpaid church leaders.
