Over my 12 years of professional training and time playing college basketball, 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.
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.
