Meet Renee


Founder of PeelFit Training

I am a mom, wife, and personal trainer/coach in Hoboken, NJ and Manhattan. My training philosophy is quite simple — train your body for a playful life!

My motto: Train Smart, Live Strong, Play Long!

My approach is to start with building a strong foundation of movement, train your body in a way that is fun, fits your lifestyle, and makes you feel empowered, strong and healthy! I refer to this as TRAINING SMART, and believe this is the key to being consistent! With consistency, comes results and LIVING STRONG! So, train smart, live strong, so you can do the things you love for a long time….PLAY LONG!

Work and the kids keep me on my feet all day like most moms, and balancing it all is definitely a challenge. Staying fit and strong has helped me with this and all aspects of my life and I love to help others to do the same:)

So how did I end up here? I was a fashion buyer, I wasn’t an athlete, but I loved being active! I snowboarded, wakeboarded, played soccer and was always very competitive. When I had my daughter 9 years ago, my priorities really changed. While I didn’t like working out, in the traditional sense of the word, I forced myself into the gym because I knew I needed it! I found community, and Health and fitness became more of a focus, not only so that I could be there for my family, but for my own sanity. My workouts became my sanity, and the “me” time I really needed as a new mother. The gym became a truly happy place for me for the first time in my life because I feel in love with the community and the feeling of getting stronger! When I was pregnant with my son 2 years later, I decided I wanted to help others feel strong and empowered and healthy through fitness! Since then, it has been absolutely more incredible that I would have even expected!
