About this pro

I have the unique ability to make fitness fun! I also have 22 years experience in weight loss,strength training, metabolism boosting programs while making sure you are progressing in a safe, effective manner. I am professional  and patient as well as realize that you don't need to have an extreme diet or exercise plan to change your life. Lifestyle modification and a comprehensive individualized program is the key to long term success!

I have a extensive experience in not only personal training but Pilates as well which requires comprehensive training in human movement. As well as my training experience I can also provide diet plans, menus and nutritional guidance!

In addition I have two trainers who work with me to deliver top notch fitness programs to clients in their homes or at the studio.

I have been in the fitness industry for over 20 years and understand the impact of being healthy does to one's self esteem, physical and emotional health. I also realize that people want to look good when they stand in front of a mirror. I love my job because I can help people achieve their goals and love seeing the impact as it affects every aspect of their lives!

    I don't typically like gyms. I am too intimidated to go into the weight training area especially during peak hours. I don't know enough about what I am doing to feel safe because of my back injury, I ask the front desk they refer me to trainers who want me to buy sessions. I felt frustrated every time I went there. Now with a Ditch the Gym trainer I can workout in the gym with them on my phone and earbuds in and I go to their studio. I feel more confident and sometimes workout with them when I am at home. Its very convenient.

    I travel for work. During the evenings we are usually hosting business dinners and meetings. I do virtual training first thing in the morning with my trainer before I start my day. Sometimes we train in the hotel room and sometimes we train in the hotel gym. I feel great knowing my fitness program doesn't stop due to travel and when I come home my trainer comes to my house. I love the flexibility of Ditch Your Gym!

    I'm a mom of 3 who could never go to the gym. When I tried to have a trainer come to my home I would always have to cancel sessions because of cranky and sick kids. Training with Rochelle and her team virtually has changed my life. I have lost 20 lbs and feel so much better about myself. Some days when I need human interaction I have Rochelle come to the house. It is awesome! Thanks Ditch Your gym!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Meet them, find out everything about their situation and goals, asses then create a program based on what they want and what their body needs. My programs are like building a house. We need to create a good foundation, then go from that point!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been in the fitness industry for over 23 years specializing in group and personal training.  I provide fitness programs for all levels and abilities and specialize in weight loss, toning, strength and flexibility. As an industry veteran I have the capability of delivering a great fitness experience while keeping it fun.

My fitness certifications include: PT, Group Fitness, Yoga fit, PIYO, INSANITY, Fitness Brigade (HIIT), Jillian Michael’s Bodyshred and Pilates. My workouts can blend the different formats together to create a fusion of programming modalities, or I can keep it single focused depending on what my clients require. I work hard to assist my clients in progressing and achieving a desired experience with periodization and safety in mind.

I am a native of Victoria, British Columbia and my roles in the fitness “world” have included being a group fitness instructor, personal trainer, group fitness director and personal training director. I have worked for boutique studios, large fitness companies, high profile families and have owned 2 personal training studios in Redondo Beach, Ca. My passion is to help people achieve optimal health as I know the impact balanced health has in all facets of our lives

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge people by session and have extremely reasonable rates. My theory is that everyone can benefit from training no matter what your budget is.

How did you get started teaching?

I have a family history of lifestyle related diseases and saw how it could affect the quality of someone's life. It empowered me to help change preventable problems.
