I was born and raised in beautiful San Diego where I earned my undergraduate degree from University of California, San Diego and my Master's from San Diego State University.

I currently live in the heart of San Diego and would love to be your neighborhood trainer. I have been a certified personal trainer since 1999 and I am excited for every day I get to "go to work" to coach and motivate people to make healthy lifestyle changes and enjoy exercise.

I have worked with clients as young as 8 years old and others who are in their 90s. Exercise and fitness have been a passion of mine for my entire life. My goal is to inspire others to learn to love exercise and incorporate it into their daily lives. Let me help you set a new goal and achieve it!

You can get in the BEST shape of your life at any age or stage of your life so what are you waiting for? Whether your goal is to run a marathon, lose weight, or just feel healthy, I am ready to start you on your journey to achieving your goals!

    Rene is by far the most motivating personal trainer I ever worked with. She gives a real one on one approach with her clients and gives you so much personal attention. She is involved in every aspect from your nutrition to how many hours of sleep you get at night! She customizes a work out and plan for you and really pushes you to the next level. You share your goals with her and she keeps you 100% on track. I lost 10lbs and 6% body fat working out with Rene! Her energy and positive attitude is contagious! I would highly recommend Rene!!

    Rene has been my trainer for just over 5 years. Her knowledge,commitment,compassion helped me to lose 100 lbs. I would quite literally not be tbe person I am today without her. I had a major surgery 3 years ago along with some injuries and gained back 25 lbs. Rene has never quit on me and continues to push me to lose that weight. Her commitment to me has never waivered. At 56 years old I am doing 5 ks, half marathons and tri-relays. Six years ago I would have never believe that possible. I love her! Debbie

    I never thought I'd be 39 years old, with 2 kids and training for Half Marathons!!! I just signed up for #4! She helped me with the week by week training schedule and even told me what days to rest and why that is SO important! Rene' has inspired me so much in the two and a half years she has trained me! I found her through a friend when I was 25 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. Not only did she train me through my pregnancy, but she helped me lose ALL the baby weight and more!! I am now my High school weight, but a size smaller! Through her inspiration and motivation, she has inspired me to reach almost all of my goals! Next on my horizon is a mini-tri! I have loved the extra personal touch she gives her clients... usually a check in text, "How was the long run", or "Did you make it to spin class"! I love Rene' and her energy and positivity is simply refreshing!

    Rene is the most motivating personal fitness trainer I have worked with. Her energy and effort extend well beyond the time of your session. I can't tell you how helpful a simple call or text message from her asking "How was the gym/bike ride/run, etc.?" or "How was food today" can be. She also takes the time to interpret and understand what your goals are. I think a lot of fitness professionals have an image of what they want for their clients regardless of what their client really wants/needs. Rene took the time to understand where my strengths and weakness were in the sports I do(primarily swimming,surfing,cycling, & snowboarding) and took that into account. She realized that some of my muscle groups which were stronger than others were causing muscle imbalances and tightness, all of which she worked into my program. I can't recommend enough that ANYBODY call her and begin training for whatever goals they have. I gained not just fitness, but also mental strength that translated into healthier work and life habits. Oh yeah, I lost about 20 lbs as well. Thanks Rene!
