Hi, I’m Shirlee and I am a master trainer here at the RAC for Women. After graduating from SUNY Brockport with a 4 year degree in Physical Education, I coached Modified Track, Softball and Girls Varsity Tennis at Churchville Chili High School for 4 years. I then discovered my passion for helping individuals improve their quality of life through exercise and started as a personal trainer. Through the years I have acquired an extensive knowledge base and skills that I have used over and over that helped individuals of all ages strengthen and condition their entire physical body. It is extremely gratifying to know that I have helped an individual accomplish so many things in their life that they were previously unable to do. 

I am a master trainer through the National Federation of Professional Trainers (NFPT) and I have a lifetime Fitness Instructor certification through Dr. Coopers Institute for Aerobics Research. 


Hi I’m Wendy and I have been working at the RAC for Women since 2006. My Personal Training Credentials include Aerobic and Fitness Association of America and National Academy Sports Medicine Certification. Over the last ten years it has been my passion to empower women and help women of all ages better their fitness, health and wellness, and achieve their fitness goals. I am constantly looking to enhance and expand my knowledge in this field to better equip me. With over 60 continuing education credits taken, I am confident it has prepared me to better serve those who are ready to challenge themselves to ultimately achieve their fitness goals. Some of my favorite continuing education courses have been Injury Prevention and Exercise Progressions, Midlife Fitness for Women, Sports Nutrition, Performance Training, and Sustaining Mobility & Movement: Human Movement Science and Practical Modality Instruction. Since I have reached that midlife span myself, it has pushed me to learn as much as possible about the challenges that present themselves with aging and develop the best approach I can to help those in the same mid-stage (or later) of life to achieve their goals.

Whatever your goals are, I would love to work with you to assist you in reaching them. Whether you are looking to lose weight and body fat, or looking to gain muscle strength for toning or metabolism boosting, or returning from an injury or surgery, I am here to help. Personal training is a great way to achieve those goals quicker and safer.
