Are you too busy to even think about exercise? Personal training with Rachel takes the guesswork out of working out. All you have to do is show up.
About Personal Training
When you hire Rachel for Personal Training your workouts are customized to your unique goals and abilities and designed to make the best use of your exercise time. You get instruction and motivation along with expert supervision of your exercise performance. You exercise more efficiently, effectively and with greater focus. Personal Training increases your results because you work harder and smarter…and let’s face it…you workout more often.
“Rachel is personable, extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and was incredibly helpful in getting me motivated and in working towards my fitness goals. She was creative in designing an exercise program tailored to my needs and keeping it varied over time. She knows a great deal about her field and last but not least the hour flew by because of her personality. I highly recommend her.” -Debbie B. 40′s, Clinical Psychologist
How it Works
The process begins with a free consultation. This consultation may take place in person or by phone, and includes a detailed discussion of your fitness goals, exercise experience and relevant medical history. I’ll ask about your daily life and how much time you can commit to exercise. I’ll explain what you need to do and why, and I’ll outline how long it will take to reach your goals. At the end of the consultation, we set a schedule that you are comfortable with and feel confident about sticking to.
“Rachel helped me design an exercise program after I was diagnosed with arthritis and low bone density. She encourages me and makes sure I don’t slack off when I get lazy — with just the right amount of pushing, tempered with a great sense of humor. I not only look and feel better but I am also able to be more active and stay positive. Rachel was an incredible help; I would have never started this on my own and certainly wouldn’t have kept up with it.” -Brad, Actor/ Announcer
I work primarily in New York’s Upper East Side and I also visit the Upper West Side, Midtown, and Greenwich Village to see clients. I will come to your apartment, office or residential fitness center. I can meet you in the park for an outdoor workout or at a gym that allows members to workout with private trainers.
“Rachel has that great combination of incredible expertise and quality as a human being. In the five years I’ve trained with her I’ve never been bored and I’ve never been sorry to see her arrive in the morning (twice a week). With Rachel, training doesn’t end at the gym door. She emails often and responds instantly to email with assistance or friendly advice – including last week when she talked me off a ledge from eating the wrong food. Anyone who hires Rachel is getting an expert and a loyal friend for life.” -Carren, Attorney

“Rachel is a terrific trainer. I had a long-term shoulder problem, and after working with Rachel I didn’t. She increased my flexibility, my strength, and my pain passed. She works you hard, purposely and effectively.” -Tom P.
