About Raymond

My name is Raymond Brenkert. I'm CPT licensed through NASM. Feel free to message me for a free consult!  Like you I have been there! I became a trainer after I lost 100lbs in 10 months. I wanted to help others do the same. I was told I was a pre-diabetic and weighed 300lbs. I flipped the switch. I lost off 100 pounds in 10 months to get myself healthy again. I am going to show you that you can do anything! I have been terribly out of shape and lost those 100 pounds, I have been in lean and mean fight shape strong as an ox, and everywhere in-between. I navigated those waters for you so you do not have to. I confidently say I can get you where you want to be no matter what your goal is. Weight loss, strength, speed, corrective exercise, sport performance, injury prevention, general fitness, or self defense. You name it, I got you covered! My sessions are customized to meet your specific goals. I have worked with every type of person there is with success. Let's connect and let me show you what you are truly capable of. Let's take that first step together and together we will crush it.I'm also amateur MMA fighter, kickboxer, and BJJ purple belt submission grappler. I used to act in movies and do stand-up comedy too!

Ray knows his stuff! His plans are great he’s been so helpful and accommodating 10/10


I love working with Ray! He is helping me to achieve all of my fitness goals! He provides me with well planned challenging workouts that increase in intensity as I become stronger and more physically fit! His workouts are never boring and he always motivates me to do my best. Ray checks in to see how I’m doing, always answers any questions I might have and just makes working out a lot of fun! I’ve lost weight and am in the best shape of my life since I started working with Ray. I am grateful for every session and look forward to continuing to reach my goals!

I started working with Raymond last year after healing from a lower back injury. He was so patient in the process with me and knew when I could handle a tougher workout and when to pull back for a rest day and some stretching so I don't hurt myself all over again. Over time he helped me get stronger and stronger, and now I can lift heavier and do more dynamic movements that I never would have been able to do before! And what I like most is that I never feel bored, or unmotivated to work out anymore. Raymond keeps it fun and is always changing it up so I feel excited and ready to do the work!


Raymond has been my trainer for a while now, and I can’t say enough how good he’s been with me. He has an easy-going but motivational personality and his knowledge is expansive. I’ve learned a lot about exercising from him, and he’s gotten me into better shape than I’ve ever been in!

I have been training with Ray for 4 years and it has been nothing but a pleasure! Ray is always flexible with finding time to train with my busy work schedule. His workouts are always amazing and every week is different. I’ve seen so much improvement from when we first started to today.


Got the CoVid Blues, packed on a few,.. In one week with Raymond’s daily home workout plan he prepared for me, I already feel the difference. I have more energy throughout the day. The full body workouts are easy to follow and will Kick your Butt!! I also like that Raymond will answer any questions I have and shows me how to modify if needed. Great trainer, very motivating!! Best decision and so glad I’m training with him. One of the best trainers I’ve had!!


I've been training on and off with Raymond for the last 2.5 years. If you're looking for a trainer who will truly believe in you and work you hard, you've found the right one. Raymond has always pushed me to go as hard as he knows I can. He will create a personal routine for you, check in to see how you're feeling with everything and change whatever needs to be changed to make sure you're getting the best from your work outs. He's has personally helped me take control of my fitness goals and I've been very thankful to have him as my trainer for so long.
