I've been training with Renae over 15 years. She is very knowledgeable, has an eye for form and technique, she is creative with the workouts and keeps me motivated to stay on track. I've had highs and lows over the years and Renae is always by my side supporting me every step of the way.


I have worked with many trainers over the years but Renae is the only one that has gotten me to my goals. She has also helped me in maintaining those goals for five years and counting. She is everything you need in a trainer; knowledgeable, professional, and constantly learning new things but most of all, Renae is supportive while holding me accountable. She is also wicked funny. :-)

Renae has been my trainer off and on for many years as I have stumbled my way to a fit life. Renae has always used positive words of encouragement, she is open and truely glad when I have regrouped and continued toward life fitness. Over the years I have seen a variety of trainers and you get an idea of who is training for their clients benefit and who is training for their personal ego’s. Renae is focused on her clients not her ego and it’s clear from the start. Renae’s knowledge of body mechanics, nutrition and fitness is well above the norm and she brings all this to her clients. Renae’s continued education in her field keeps her workouts and routines up to date, fresh and on point for hr clients needs. You can not fined a better trainer.


Renae has the wonderful qualities of persuasive and careful, optimistic and exuberant but strict on form; preferring good execution to ripping out reps. For this reason, she can train people of all ages and fitness levels and make each person feel valued while developing habits and strength for the fittest life they choose to pursue.

Renae's knowledge of the body and what can benefit your body is vast. Always working to learn more. Most important to me is she understands what physical ailments I have and finds the exercises i can do instead of the ones others think should be done. Very caring.


I have been training with Renae for 15 + years. She is constantly improving and adding to her quiver of skills. She gets to know her clients, she can encourage you to try new methods and learn new skills. She holds expertise levels in TRX, Spin, Yoga, Nutrition and has trained womens and mens teams for Mudder and Spartan Challenges. She is dedicated, knowledgeable and caring when it comes to your health and training. Renae is "The Best".

I have been working out with Renae for over 6 years in a few different settings. She teaches great classes (DownDawg Yoga and Cardio Mix) which I only miss if I'm out of town - these classes are fun and have great energy thanks to Renae's never ending energy and enthusiasm. Renae also coaches from her home studio where I have been able to receive encouragement and the additional strength training needed to stay strong and fit. When Renae is coaching, I hate to miss a class, no matter what the structure, yoga, cardio, strength training or TRX!
