As a US national team athlete, knowing the difference between maximizing workouts and over training is critical. For the last two years Devon has created custom online training and recovery programs to meet my daily regiment. I trust his training programs because they aren’t your run of the mill body builder regiments but they personally cater to my mobility and flexibility needs. This individual attention to my personal needs has made all the difference on the field.
For the past three off-seasons Devon has written me workout plans to keep me in shape, increase overall athleticism, improve technique in various olympics lifts, and to improve flexibility and mobility. His workouts and support has become essential to my year long training routine! The gains and improvements I’ve made have become critical to my success as a professional athlete.
Rena is an angel who came into my life! Exercising doesn’t come natural to me and she not only physically helped me, but emotionally helped build my confidence in knowing how to exercise and love my body. Rena has a special energy that exudes in her work. Once you meet her, you’ll never want to leave her.
When I used to train I was lucky enough to work with Rena for about 6 months before I moved overseas. My form, flexibility, and strength improved so much while I trained with her. She is super knowledgeable about nutrition and body physiology and had me on a workout plan that challenged me, but was also realistic in ramping up my abilities to avoid injury. I would highly recommend Rena to anyone and I will definitely be training with her again when I move back to Seattle!
I cannot say enough good things about my experience training with Rena. She really knows her stuff, and her goal is to make sure your journey to fitness is positive and well…uplifting. It’s a pretty accurate business name! I spent over 6 months with her and would definitely do so again. Anyone who is looking for a body positive trainer should be working with Rena and Devon!
I worked with Rena 3 times a week while I trained for a mountain expedition. Due to my sort of crazy work schedule, we had to meet at the ungodly hour of 5:30 am. Rena was always chipper as could be, it was almost sicking really how excited she was to exercise.
I had never done a squat in my like, I had never really done any meaningful exercise at a gym at all, actually. The only real experience exercising I have is cardio. She was super helpful, super patient and really just fun to hang out with. After only a few weeks we had running jokes, she would let me pick the music, though my brain wasn’t really functional at that hour so she usually picked. I still have songs in my spotify playlist from our exercises. She has an awesome sense of humor that really makes the time fly.
She is clearly knowledgable about exercise (one would hope with a personal trainer right? Kind of seems like a given), nutrition (again, I feel like this goes without saying, but maybe this is what tips the balance and makes you decide to pick her).
I am currently focusing on other goals, but when I come back around for another mountain expedition or I am just trying to get stronger/healthier, Rena is the one I trust.
She’s great. Do it.
