Every day, we come to work excited to make RAC the place for your fitness success and where balanced lifestyles thrive.
We’re here to motivate you and help you achieve your goals, without pressure and certainly without intimidating attitudes. That's OUR goal. When you work with a trainer at RAC, you're with a mentor, a coach and a friend.
"No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training, it is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable of."

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't want to work hard. I live by this phrase since it exemplifies who I am as a trainer and person. I believe with the right workout program, motivation and persistence, you can achieve any goal you set your mind to. Often times to keep my client motivated I ask them who they are? I tell them they need to answer they are awesome, that way it helps them push through the workout.
