Rochelle is a certified personal trainer and program assistant at RecWell. From New Prague, MN, she is studying Sports Psychology. Her dedication to sports performance and strength training draws from a personal love of being active. Her favorite ways to get active include kettlebell training, softball, volleyball, and most of all, Olympic weightlifting. (She holds a personal record of a 300 lb. deadlift!) “My favorite part of personal training is working with all the different people and all the different personality types. Working at RecWell, there are dynamics between the programs; it is a family here.”
