Rena is a personal trainer and powerlifting coach. She got into competitive powerlifting after battling with an eating disorder and realized, if she wanted to get stronger, she had to eat more and had to change her mindset. For Rena, physical and mental strength go hand in hand and that’s what she helps you focus on. Her training focuses on getting you to move better and more efficiently not only in the gym, but daily life as well. In her free time, Rena is typically found reading on the couch with her two cats.

Devon believes that there is no “one fits all approach” and wants to educate people on how they can improve their overall health, to have a thriving pain free life.
