MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

Rae Reichlin

Top rated icon TOP RATED

Growing up a dancer Rae moved, learned, and worked hard with everyday. She loved using her mind and body in tandem and pushing them to their limits.

When Rae decided she did not want to pursue dance professionally, she had to find something to replace that feeling of working hard and getting tangible results. This is where she found fitness. Going to the gym quickly became her favorite activity, and she found herself jealous of all the trainers who got to stay there and help others accomplish their goals and learn about their bodies all day. So she decided to become one of those trainers herself, earning a personal trainer certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

Rae learned and took on all the she could, teaching pilates, bootcamp, and barre classes, all while building her clientele for personal training. She quickly learned that fitness and exercise was not a one size fits all model, and pursued a functional movement screen certification to aid her in individualizing her clients and breaking down what they need for their specific bodies.
Rae has worked with clients of all levels and fitness backgrounds, and loves to see each and every one come to meet their goals in their own way.

    I highly recommend this class for beginning and experienced lifters. I lift regularly and every time I attend Rae's class I learn more new things. Also being in a class with empowered ladies is really rewarding and encouraging.

    I absolutely loved this class. What a unique concept Rae has created and managed to roll out so smoothly and with style. The workout was challenging and satisfying and I left feeling uplifted and empowered by the other women in the class. I've been raving about this to anyone who will listen and can't wait for the next session. Rae is knowledgable, professional and clearly loves what she does for a living- not only that, but she's kind, warm and truly a pleasure to be around.

    If you're interested in weight lifting/resistance training but don't know where to start, I strongly recommend attending the "Ladies Who Lift" classes. The first class goes over best practices for form, the WHY behind lifting weights, and a great workout. LWL Level 2 went straight into another great workout. In both, Rae sets you up for long term success by focusing on good form and is available for any questions you have. Positive environment, great music, and...SNACKS! What else could you ask for?
    Thank you for having us, Rae!

    I've dabbled (oh, she's got jokes!) in various programs, studios, gyms throughout Chicago and can honestly say I've never felt more comfortable being "up in the gym just workin' on my fitness" than I have attending both Ladies Who Lift levels 1 and 2. Firstly, Rae is a machine with a real passion for bring women together and helping them feel empowered to embrace their physical (and emotional) strengths. Secondly, the other attendees were bada$$ bias. Everyone was supportive and free of judgement, which is not something so easily found among the SoulCycles of the world. I dug how in Level 2 Rae walked us through a variety of old school-looking gym contraptions—one's that I've usually come across but been too afraid to use out of fear of looking like it's amateur hour. All around stellar experience that went beyond just getting in and getting out for a workout. Plus, there's a photographer who walks around throughout snapping sick shots of you in Beast Mode. Legit. Hit.it.up. Byeeeee.

    This was my first Ladies Who Lift Level 2 class and it honestly exceeded all my expectations, it was an amazing experience. I know plenty of people have said this, but it cannot be said enough, Rae is an incredible teacher. She has great energy, she's extremely helpful and encouraging and most importantly, no matter what your skill level is, she makes you feel like a badass. She also has an amazing photographer who comes in and takes awesome pictures, she stays in the background for the most part, but occasionally she cheered us on and asked how we were doing, which was very thoughtful. I also had the opportunity to work out with two other amazing ladies, they were very encouraging and pushed me to lift my heaviest, which I really appreciated.

    Level 2 gets right into the workout, but I still continue to walk away with a new exercise to try on my own, a correction on my form, or a new PR.

    Ladies Who Lift welcomes and accomadates women of all fitness levels. I’ve learned to improve my posture, form, and lifting techniques. All of these things help me avoid injuries, increase mental stamina, and confidence in the gym. Since I started attending LWL, I take 1 lift at a time, interested in learning new exercises and equipment, and manage stress better. There’s nothing like flipping a tire or swinging an axe to make you forget about work!

    Ladies Who Lift Level 2 classes are all about community. A community of like-minded people who identify as female, who want a laid-back, encouraging and judgement-free space to get their lift on. When I say judgement-free, I mean it, nobody who comes to these classes is judging anyone else, they are instead giving out tips, doling out compliments, helping each other do better than last time. If all of this sounds too good to be true, I guarantee you it is not. Come to a class and you’ll see, LWL is the BEST way to spend your time on a Sunday afternoon.

LWL has provided a space for women to workout in a judgement free zone. I feel so strong and comfortable around these ladies.

I actually look more lean and tone than I’ve ever been before. LWL is the best!

    This was my second time back at Ladies Who Lift (first time in Level 2) and again, was more than happy with the entire event. Rae gets down to business right away leading the group in stretches and explaining the circuits that we'd be doing for the class. Since it was level two, she breezes through what we'd be doing (but still briefly touches on technique) which is amazing for all the returning members since we're all hot to get right into the work out! That being said, during each circuit if there was EVER a moment that I forgot what I was doing or was using incorrect form she was quick to hop in and go through the proper technique with me again. The camaraderie between all the women there is so powerful, everyone feeds off each other energy and theres no intimidation in asking another lady for some help. Very uplifting! I love this program and Rae so much! (10/10 would recommend)

    Even though I was super comfortable with and absolutely loved Ladies who Lift Level 1, I was a little (ok a lot) nervous to try Ladies who Lift Level 2. I'll be honest, these ladies are STRONG! However, they are also warm, supportive, and encouraging. Rae once again brings enthusiasm, insight, and guidance to her well-thought out (and extremely challenging) class. She is incredibly attentive and will make sure each person is challenging themselves with proper form. This class was definitely tough but I loved every single minute of it. If you want to take it up a notch from Level 1 (and especially if you think you "can't") you should not hesitate to sign up for Level 2! I wish I could take this class every week!

    Ladies Who Lift is a "no judgement zone" lifting class. Not only is Rae incredibly knowledgeable about lifting, she is also so supportive and helpful during the class. She does a wonderful job of immediately making you feel comfortable, and it is easy to get addicted with an incredible community of ladies lifting heavy things!

    With mostly Level 2 veterans in the class, all participants were able to focus on their lifts as Rae provided tips and instructions where needed. In addition, she gave us more options at each station, which allowed us to tailor the workout to our personal interests or on areas in which we hoped to improve. Despite coming back to Level 2 frequently, Rae keeps the workout exciting and challenging each time.

Since it was level two, she breezes through what we'd be doing (but still briefly touches on technique) which is amazing for all the returning members since we're all hot to get right into the work out! That being said, during each circuit if there was EVER a moment that I forgot what I was doing or was using incorrect form she was quick to hop in and go through the proper technique with me again.

I'll be honest, these ladies are STRONG! However, they are also warm, supportive, and encouraging. Rae once again brings enthusiasm, insight, and guidance to her well-thought out (and extremely challenging) class. She is incredibly attentive and will make sure each person is challenging themselves with proper form. This class was definitely tough but I loved every single minute of it. If you want to take it up a notch from Level 1 (and especially if you think you \"can't\") you should not hesitate to sign up for Level 2! I wish I could take this class every week!

In addition, she gave us more options at each station, which allowed us to tailor the workout to our personal interests or on areas in which we hoped to improve. Despite coming back to Level 2 frequently, Rae keeps the workout exciting and challenging each time.","teacher_response":null}
