Many people are conflicted when it comes to fitting exercise into a busy schedule and the struggle is real. Competing priorities in a very busy, although sedentary, lifestyle reveal obstacles to exercise that are as familiar as the benefits.


The good news is that you don’t have to be perfect. But you have to be focused and you have to be consistent. The challenges we face are well known, but your fitness solution is unique.

Maybe you are…

  • Having trouble getting motivated to exercise?
  • Tired of working out and not getting results?
  • Super pressed for time and want to get the best return on your investment?
  • Able to stay on track, but you want to make sure it’s the right track?
  • Active in sports but you know you could perform better and avoid injury if you had a solid foundation of fitness?
  • Returning to the gym after a layoff and not sure where to start?
  • Not in the market for a personal trainer, but could use some fresh ideas because your routine is getting a little too…routine.

You may be stuck in a rut, getting back in the game or totally new to exercise. Live Better Fitness offers plans to fit any schedule and budget. Every aspect of the program will be customized to your unique needs. (Scroll down for client testimonials and details about each service.)

Testimonials from Clients

“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.” –Brad

“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

“I have been a fitness enthusiast for many years. Like most men, my workouts focused mainly on my upper body thinking that cardio would take care of lower half. Rachel got me to rethink my workouts and add leg training to my routine. It was amazing! My body fat went down and my upper body strength increased. Rachel’s advice enhanced my routine and revitalized my workouts.” -Paul

“I would like to acknowledge in writing the tremendous help you have given to my mother. The benefits of your exercise class have made a vast difference in her life.” – Katharine

“Since I’ve been coming to your class I went from walking 20 blocks to walking 30 blocks and I went from lifting 2lb weights to 5lb weights. Once I tried to run across the street when the light was changing and my feet didn’t lift. Now I can run when the light is changing and I can run to catch the bus. When I first saw your class I thought it looked too easy. I don’t know how my muscles magically got stronger and my stamina magically increased, but they did. And it was easy!”

“When I leave the class I feel refreshed, stimulated and all set to go on to my other activities. Rachel the instructor is patient and skilled in dealing with seniors. I look forward to my classes.” -Pat

“Rachel’s teaches us exercises that are simple to follow and easy to do. She has a plan in her mind which involves making our joints movable, muscles toned, bodies straight, strengthened and nimble, helping us to stay active and enjoy daily living…She varies the exercises to keep the class interesting. She talks to us, bringing in humor, telling anecdotes, explaining the effect of body movements and giving us knowledge of our bodies…Rachel makes sure that we are doing our exercises the right way by demonstration accompanied by clear verbal instructions…That is why we keep going to her class.”
