What clients say about Rayne and his training
Rayne Herzog’s Warrior class at the Shelburne Health & Fitness Club is a great fitness class. The class is very challenging, however Rayne is great at pushing people to work at a safe and effective level of fitness. He will show that you can do things you may have thought you were incapable of. Rayne is great at explaining the different exercises and making sure everyone is doing things safely. He is also very motivating and will not let people get away with slacking! One of my favorite aspects of this class is the variety of exercises including flexibility, cardiovascular, calisthenics, strengthening, and agility. It keeps the workout interesting and makes me want to keep going to see what will be in the mix the next class. It is a very friendly environment and judgment-free. The other participants cheered me on during my first workout, which made me feel very welcome. Overall, I would recommend to people who are looking for a challenging workout in a hospitable environment.
Warrior is a blast! Rayne guides you through a series of diverse exercises that are challenging, fun and safe. You can go at your own pace and everyone who takes the class cheers each other on and makes you feel part of a team. Rayne’s energy is incredibly positive, motivating and infectious. You will leave class energized and proud of yourself for getting up early and rocking it.
Rayne’s Warrior training is a creative, inclusive, and demanding experience. As a physical therapist, my perspective on exercise classes is that they must be modifiable so that within a given group of participants, each individual can be challenged in a safe manner. Warrior meets that standard, allowing class members of varied experience and capability to work within a class atmosphere while altering specific exercises to address their needs. During the class, I see each individuals challenging themselves at their own levels, yet thriving in the motivation and camaraderie that a group provides. The emphasis on a dynamic warmup, a well-rounded circuit focusing on multiple body regions, and inclusion of movements that often get neglected during many traditional workouts are positives that can help one exercise in a safe, effective way.
Rayne Herzog offers everything you could hope for in a personal trainer: an upbeat and encouraging personality, years of experience, a creative and varied repertoire of exercises and routines, close attention to form, and sensitivity to the strengths and limitations of individual clients. It’s been a great pleasure to experience all of these qualities in every session with Rayne. Many thanks!
I am impressed at how much stronger (relatively) I have become since starting Warrior last fall.
I NEVER would have accomplished the half marathon in April or even attempted the tri training without that base. I hope to actually complete a tri at some point.
Thanks for all you do
A little over a month ago I started fitness/strength/weight loss training at Shelburne Health & Fitness with Rayne Herzog as my Personal Trainer /Coach to get this 50 pound overweight 66 YO body in shape. During the intake process Rayne asked me and then documented what I wanted to accomplish – my goals – which was/is to lose weight; become strong and fit – to recreate my 20 YO self. After some initial testing, Rayne designed a program for me based on my age, height, weight and level of strength/flexibility. I have become stronger everywhere; lost weight – dimensions to my neck, chest and most importantly my waist and have increased my cardiovascular stamina.
Rayne challenges me every workout with new exercises and goals that push me to new extremes. Since I have been with him I continue to improve all the time. It’s hard to make going to the gym fun and entertaining but Rayne pulls it off every day. He makes our workout sessions both fun and rewarding. Rayne is a very talented personal trainer and an all around great guy.
I’ve been working out with Rayne for three and a half years. After a year and a half of working with Rayne I was running, spinning, lifting weights and even training for a triathlon. I never would have attempted those activities without Rayne’s encouragement and coaching. He knows how to push his clients just enough so that they make gains, but not so far that they feel frustrated.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rayne to anyone interested in improving their overall health and fitness
I very much enjoy working with Rayne. He pushes me to work harder than I ever have, and he shows me that I can do more than I’ve ever believed. He keeps me smiling through a workout, so I barely know how hard I’m working. I love every minute of working out with him.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with the best personal trainer on the eastern seaboard, Rayne Herzog. Seven months doing the Lifetrak program. I am truly amazed how different my life is, how I feel and how I look! Thank you Rayne for all the support and positive strength you have given me and I look forward to working with you in the coming months!
