Your Coaches

Our Mission:

Uplift Fitness was created as a way to empower people through fitness and nutrition so that they can live happier, healthier, and stronger lives. We believe that strength, regardless of how you define it, is for everyone. It does not care your size, gender, sex, race, sexual orientation, religion, or any other categories you may have been put in. It simply exists. 

Our goal through training is to help people feel stronger physically and mentally by teaching them how to confidently move their bodies and pick up some weights while having fun!

Rena is our lead trainer both in-person and online. She got into strength training and 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 her, 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.

While Devon was a collegiate athlete he was fascinated with what the human body could do through proper training and nutrition. 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. In Devon’s free time, he is snowboarding, playing the piano, or, most importantly, grilling.
