Over 15 years of professional training I’ve experienced the same problem with all the advice given by fitness magazines, trainers who looked the part and ‘popular gyms’. There has been a lack of guidance and personalization specific to each individual.
Professionals in the fitness realm constantly ask people to tackle challenges and enter situations when they are physically and mentally unprepared. They concentrate 95% of their effort on what’s happening inside the gym, putting their clients at risk of both injury and eventual failure.
When opening RAISE, I wanted to create a new standard practice in the industry. One that cares as much as I do, a system that effectively ‘Raises the standard’ and focuses on the individual needs of our clients.
Hard work does matter, but I can prove that minimal, effective doses of intensity is better. I also know it’s not the time spent in the gym with me, it’s the other 165 hours a week that need to be addressed and monitored. It’s the actions we take daily, consistently and intelligently that make a difference.
The bottom line is RAISE cuts out the B.S. so you can focus on what matters when it comes to getting in shape. So, whether you’re looking to change up your routine, improve your habits, or just look a little better, we care and can help.
How are we
Each of you comes to us with different goals in mind.
Whatever your motivation, we need to understand how you live your life, not just what you can or can’t do in the gym.
We tailor each & every program based on your level of ability, the time you have to spend, equipment available to you, the people you hang around with and the way you eat. We adjust each day based on your life so that business travel, family and the other curve-balls are just part and parcel of your progress.
Are we right
Selecting a fitness specialist is a long-term commitment on many levels - time, money, physically
Because we offer a more exclusive, personalized service and limit the number of clients we take on, we conduct a free 2 week on-boarding process to help us decide if we’d be a good fit.
Our goal is to help you build discipline and create new habits
that will last a lifetime, not just for
the summer. A key part of our job is to keep you on-track when you’re not physically working out with us so we will be in regular contact, checking in, keeping you honest and most of all supported.
We want to lay the groundwork
not only through personalization but
with consistency. The confidence that
our clients gain, and their new found knowledge on how to integrate fitness into their lives in a way that truly works for them is a win for us.
What results can
We start with an introductory call to understand your unique fitness goals. We then take the following 13 days to get to know you better by reviewing your daily routine, how you eat and your current level of fitness. We are not in the business of creating programs that feel good but don’t work and we never want to sell unobtainable goals, so this is the perfect way for you to try us on for size.

Sound nutrition is the basis for all health, physical and performance goals. That being said, nutrition is all about longevity, not about 30 days of fad dieting. This is why we apply the 80/20 rule when it comes to food, as it leaves everyone with an effective yet balanced plan you can use for life.
Nutrition needs to be unique to your present physical/mental condition and goals. What is the current state of your metabolism? How long has the metabolism been effected by over/under eating? What setup fits your life schedule?
The whole goal of nutrition is personalization and understanding the 3 key attributes of the questions above will allow you to see what works for you in 6 months. After that period, you should have all the tools to NEVER have to read a diet blog or book ever again.
Best. Trainer. Ever! As a former trainer and athlete, I was looking for someone to keep me motivated and help me push beyond my perceived limits. Ray has done just that and more over the past 5 years. I see him 3x per week and my sessions with him have become the foundation of my physical and mental health regimen.
