I help my clients look and feel great at ANY age and get the results they want – and have fun doing it!
I want to let them speak for themselves…
“Rachel is AMAZING! I have been working with her for a few years and her help and guidance has been invaluable. She’s creative, thoughtful, approachable. In addition to regular workouts, I also suffered a serious injury a couple of years ago and Rachel helped to keep me positive (which was no easy task at that time in my life) and modified my exercises so that I had the opportunity get back in shape and feel better about myself throughout the struggle. She offered me advice that I didn’t expect at all, and genuinely needed to hear even though I didn’t know it. The situation has actually changed my entire perspective on incorporating exercise into my daily life – and the deep happiness I find in my functional body is hard to describe in words. I am certain that I would not be where I am in my physical journey if I hadn’t had Rachel in my court. Rachel’s vast knowledge in training (and also nutrition) has helped me to reach my goals AND she kept me interested all of this we have been working together! Her support and guidance is something that I can’t imagine my life without at this point.” – Christine
“Let me start by saying, I read a lot – about nutrition and fitness and I’m a scientist (read: love data and evidence-based decisions) so I wasn’t sure what to expect working with Rachel (before Rachel, I had never worked with a personal trainer). From the initial call I could tell that I was going to really benefit from Rachel’s guidance. Rachel is so knowledgeable about training and fitness and the food needed to support your goals. But what is most remarkable about Rachel is that she is incredibly practical with her approach. She designs a plan that is designed to meet your personal goals (I really want to be able to do one pull up!), but also that fits in your life (I have 4 kids, and work full time, yikes!). After every call, I feel supported, focused, and energized for the weeks to come. At first, I was worried about the cost, but realized that this is an investment in my future, and by building strength and healthy food habits, I will likely save money in the long term. I will also say, you might be able to meet your goals on your own, but from personal experience, it’s so much easier with help. I was able to lose weight on my own, but in the process really messed up my thyroid. Now my thyroid is back to normal and I am excited to re-start the journey of becoming a stronger and healthier version of myself with Rachel’s help.” – Megan
“Within only 6 weeks, I am already seeing results. I can physically see muscle growth, but more important to me is that every day tasks are easier. And that is really my goal; lift weights in a session to be able to lift bags of mulch or pick up your child, etc. Rachel’s programs are catered to your individual needs and can be done in your own time. She is quick to respond to questions you have, and the programs are easy to follow. I can’t wait to see where I will be in 6 more weeks!” – Cristin
“Rachel Trotta has been such a great coach. I’ve been chunky/chunky+ my whole life and I’ve never been able to really get a handle on staying the course in my health journey or rebounding in a healthy way. I’ve had great success with Rachel for the first time in a long time. She’s really able to help clients re-frame habits to help you find the success you’re looking for. She’s smart, encouraging, dedicated, and very responsive to messages. I highly recommend working with her. Will definitely renew my our coach-client contract and work with her again. Thanks, Rachel!” – Melissa
“Rachel has been fantastic. I’ve lost over 10 lbs and couldn’t have done it without her expert help. I feel great to have done this in a healthy way, transforming my food shopping, preparation and exercise habits. It’s a goal I’ve wanted to achieve for a long time so connecting with Rachel couldn’t have been more timely. I highly recommend her!” – Maureen
“I couldn’t be happier with our system! Working online has made working out convenient, right from my own basement. Rachel has so much knowledge not only about workouts but about nutrition as well. She seems to have a fix for every bump along the way! Workouts remain different and interesting, keeping it fun! I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone interested in finally achieving their fitness goals!: – Nichole
“Everything I need is on my phone including my meal tracking, my workouts, and messaging with Rachel. We talk on the phone every few weeks to discuss how things are going and make any adjustments that are needed. With Rachel I have been able to find a balance that I have always struggled with in the past. Rachel has taught me that I do not need to be perfect, but if I am ‘pretty good most of the time’ I can still see results. If you are a person who needs some guidance in this area or benefits from external accountability, I highly suggest working with Rachel!!!” – Sarah O.
“Rachel is fabulous. Knowledgeable, practical, motivational, real. I started with her two months ago and have been amazed with the results. I’ve lost 14lbs of fat and gained 4lbs of muscle. But more than that, I feel like she has helped me make small changes in my life that will permanently change it for the better. The workouts she gives are manageable and customized. I knew nothing about working out (really and truly nothing), but was able to follow everything she gave me. She checks in every few days about what’s working with workouts/nutrition and what needs tweaking. Always helpful, supportive, and practical. What I like best about Rachel’s approach is that becoming healthy and fit is all about habits and small changes. There are no drastic diets, special foods, or long workouts required. Just several consistent workouts a week and a planned, balanced, healthy diet. All of it is incredibly doable with minimal change to my daily life. I am amazed and how much she has helped me accomplish in so short a time, in both weight loss and strength training. Thank you, Rachel!” – Robin Q.
“Working out with Rachel has been great. After moving to the area I was apprehensive about starting with a new trainer, since I loved mine in Hoboken, but after meeting, I automatically knew she would be a fantastic partner. She has really listened to me and helped me shed these 5 lbs plaguing me for years. She gives me homework I enjoy doing, got me back running again, and I feel like I have a cheerleader constantly by my side. I highly recommend Rachel for anyone who just needs an extra push to those that have bigger weight loss goals. I look forward to continuing to transform my body as we’re working now on body composition – more fat loss and muscle gain. I would never be this motivated on my own and can’t thank Rachel enough!” – Michele
“Before working with Rachel I wasn’t feeling motivated, and I was struggling with my blood sugar numbers. After only a month of working with her, I have already seen tremendous results! My blood sugar is stabilizing, and I’m feeling more energized by the day. I have been to personal trainers before, but Rachel truly makes it PERSONAL! She puts so much effort into creating workouts specialized for you, creating a schedule for days that you don’t meet with her, and works with you to create goals that you wouldn’t think to create for yourself. She has helped me to feel motivated to crush a workout, and makes sure to celebrate my victories with me!” – Mariah
“I had no energy and was so down I hated my appearance and how I felt. Rachel actually listens to you- she customized a fitness and nutrition plan based on my lifestyle, commute and vegan diet. She helped me get motivated to move and made it possible for me to work out at home and while I travel for work! The workouts are challenging – but the check in calls and email contact with Rachel are inspiring and motivating. I started seeing results – real results and I’ve gone from being a lazy couch sloth to working out at least four times a week- sometimes five or even six. I have discovered how much I love working out – I even joined my local gym as I feel more confident about my appearance. I got on the scale today and weighed 117 pounds! My “fat” jeans are so loose now I think I can toss them finally. Even my husband complimented me on how I’m losing weight and that I look good!!! I still have more weight to lose but I’ve never experienced actual results – I’m so grateful to Rachel!” – Michelle
“Rachel is a fantastic personal trainer. I work with her remotely and find she stays very connected with what’s going on with my health and fitness—so that if I am having an issue with a workout or my nutrition, she knows how to help me course correct. She’s also very good at listening—she’s never pushing me to do things I wouldn’t want to do, but rather helps me explore areas of growth I’m actually interested in. Also, she helped me achieve a pull-up, which I still consider a great victory. In short, she’s knowledgeable, thorough, communicative, and kind. I’d recommend her to anyone!” – Sarah G.
“It was an incredibly well-done, thoughtful and effective program. So many of Rachel’s philosophies, coaching concepts and techniques can be applied to the non-body/non-fitness areas of our lives. I learned many eye-opening and essential mindset and behavior change skills. I highly recommend Rachel’s online programs.” – Christine
“Rachel is approachable and always willing to answer ‘dumb’ questions. She held my hand (figuratively) through a point where I was ready to give up because of the scale, but explained to me that it is really only one measure and there were so many other measures to give me hope. She is just real… a really steady voice in a twisted world of exercise and dieting. She doesn’t promote crazy diets and wild exercises, she promotes an achievable (whatever that may be for you) shift in life. I would highly recommend working with Rachel to get a practical view of how best to fill your proverbial cup of life using a balanced approach to food and exercise.” – Kate F.
“Rachel has been so helpful and has really changed the way I think about food and meal planning. When I started working with her I was missing some key points to my nutrition. She made everything click and I have been eating a variety of healthy foods and meeting my nutritional goals! Thank you so much Rachel!!” – Lorraine
“Rachel has laid out a very executable program that WORKS. She sets you up to succeed and supports you every step of the way. Rachel will work with you to help you make being active and healthy work for you. She’s amazing.” – Amy
“Rachel is such an incredible resource. She helped my family so much with a tailored method of meal planning within the first week of our meetings. She helps simplify dinners so they are attainable even with a family of picky eaters. Highly recommend.” – Lauren
“I have been dieting and working out my whole life, but have learned more working with Rachel Trotta for the past three months than in all of my years. Her knowledge in the fields of exercise and nutrition is impressive. Her encouraging and supportive attitude is inspiring. In the past three months I have lost pounds and inches, and gained significant strength and endurance. I look forward to continuing this journey with her, and highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in becoming more fit and healthy.” – Linda
“After putting family and career first for 35 years, I knew it was time to take care of myself. I had reached an age where I was having creakiness invade and feeling movement impacted…well no more! I have been working with Rachel for 8 months. In that time I have learned that I really can do more than I thought I could. Rachel has led me with gentle encouragement to stretch and grow. She is always conscious of what I need and how far to guide me in growing. I am in the best place I have been in years! I look forward to our sessions. She has a wealth of knowledge on health, nutrition and life to share. Her warm and caring personality makes her both trainer and friend. Thank you, Rachel!” – Rosemary
“Signing on with Rachel was one of the hardest, and yet one of the greatest decisions I could have ever made. I have struggled with my weight and body image for nearly my whole life. At the point I had signed on with Rachel I was terrified, but fed up with how I was feeling and the lack of results. I thought that I knew what I was doing, but I did not. Over the course of three months Rachel has been more than just a trainer, she has become a fitness/life guru for me. I have become stronger not just physically, but mentally. I have developed a whole new perception of body image, the scale, and my health. She truly is wonderful and she is very on top of her clients. There is not a day where I feel I can’t reach out. When I do reach out she answers within the same day, if not within the same hour. She will answer any questions you have regarding health & fitness. She gives you tools to help with your weight loss and mindset, advice on tweaks that need to be made, and she will create workouts based on your abilities while still pushing you. I had come to her with 2 herniated discs and she was very mindful of strengthening my back and core. Along the way I have learned I suffer from tendinitis in my hamstrings, which was a struggle but we worked through it side by side. She is extremely understanding and mindful of the body and mind of the people who train with her. As I stated earlier I couldn’t be happier with my choice. Rachel has truly given me a new perspective on health, fitness, and wellness. If you’re looking to not just change your body, but change your mindset she is the person you want to work with!” – Jeannie
“I lost 7 lbs and I’m down a dress size. I feel great and I learned new habits and that I will continue to incorporate into everyday life. You won’t regret working with Rachel! The best!!!” – Victoria
“This program is so easy to follow and gave me so much more information about how to have a new relationship with food. The online support is wonderful. I have lost 2 sizes and am still going strong.” – Tammy
“What makes Rachel so unique is her holistic approach to women’s health. I have a history with an eating disorder and I was drawn to Rachel’s balancing act between a healthy mindset, balanced diet, and consistent exercise.” – Sarah C.
