Fitness For Everyone
Renée has formulated exercise programs for thousands of people ranging in age from 13 to 90. She's worked in numerous clubs, including some that she helped open.
Renée trained for 6 years as a competitive bodybuilder, earning titles such as Ms. Rutgers and Ms. Metropolitan (NPC National Qualifier). She trained in "hard core" gyms surrounded by many professional and Olympic athletes. Her years of working out in these facilities has provided her with a tremendous assortment of exercise routines.
When Renée finally stopped bodybuilding competitively, she resumed her love of dance by taking LOTS of classes in New York City. She eventually went on to perform with the Coors Lite Dancers and taught funk to children at an assortment of dancing schools, Y.M.C.A.'s and J.C.C.'s.
With an extensive array of knowledge in the field of movement, Renée has lectured in many businesses, schools, churches and synagogues.
Meditation and Guided Visualization
Renée was fortunate enough to under go 2 years of intense training in
meditation, starting at the young age of 16. She has since continued this
discipline and taught it to others as well as making recordings to help people
reach their full potential.
Renée’s Experience in Meditation and Guided Visualization
The gift of guided visualization and meditation entered Renée’s life at the young age of 16. This is when she began studying with a Master teacher once a week for over 2 years. After this, she pursued studying the metaphysical arts by taking many workshops and classes and refined her skills as both a student and teacher of guided visualization. This skill helped her immensely as a competitive bodybuilder, dancer and instructor in health and fitness. She is especially noted by her clients for her soothing and rhythmic voice.
