Bio: My name is Renée Giese. I am married to a wonderful man and the mother of two beautiful children! I love to laugh, learn, and spend time with friends and family. You may have seen me around, I've been a Group Fitness Instructor here at Adventure 212 since 2011 and I am also the Group Fitness Supervisor. I teach three Les Mills formats: Sh'bam, RPM and BodyPump! After the birth of my daughter in 2015, I decided to get a personal trainer to reach my own goals, and in doing so I learned that I have an incredible passion for fitness. Eventually, I decided to get certified with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) to be a Personal Trainer. In March 2017 I achieved that goal, and I'm excited to bring my love of fitness to an individual level and help others achieve success in their fitness journeys. I am so thankful to work at a gym that I love, with employees and members that are like family. In the future I hope to broaden my horizons with additional certifications.
Certifications: NASM-Certified Personal Trainer, AFAA-Primary Group Fitness, Les Mills Certified Instructor for Sh'bam, RPM and BodyPump
Training Philosophy: Strong wind, strong trees. Do not let obstacles or challenges weaken you. Allow them to make you stronger. Stare any adversity in the face! Fitness related or not, you will be better for it.
The Reason I Became a Personal Trainer: I became a personal trainer because I have such a passion for fitness. Nothing makes me happier than to see others achieve their goals and feel empowered. I love being a part of that journey.
Why I'm So Passionate about Fitness: I am so passionate about fitness because obesity, heart disease, and diabetes runs in my family. I want to break the cycle for my children and lead by example that a healthy lifestyle leads to a healthy body, a healthy mind, and a happy heart. These issues extend to so many other families and I want to help change that!
My Approach to Training People: My approach to training people is based on many variables. Goals, ability, and pre-existing conditions/injuries just to name a few. Everyone is different, so everyone will have an individualized plan.
The Most Important Aspect of Fitness:Hands down, the most important aspect of fitness is sustainability. You must create a lifestyle for wellness, and find balance to achieve long term success.
