MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

Rae Reichlin

Top rated icon TOP RATED

Growing up a dancer Rae moved, learned, and worked hard with every day. 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 that 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 everyone come to meet their goals in their own way.

    Ladies who Lift was fantastic! Today we did lifting with specific tempos and it was a great way to focus on form and technique. As always, I learn each time I go to class!

    LWL2 with Rae was great! She demo'd all of the moves, gave clear instructions, and I feel like I got a LOT done in 90 minutes. Never got bored, and the class was really positive and upbeat. Even though it was a group class, she stopped by and checked in with me on form at least 4 times, which I really appreciated. Looking forward to going back!

    I have been doing online remote training with Rae for the past month and used LWL lvl2 as a way to get some face time and check form. She did not disappoint. Instructions were clear and concise with the right amount of humor sprinkled in to keep you comfortable. Every movement came with verbal and visual instruction. The control she has of her own body is inspiring. Rae had the class moving like a well oiled machine and it makes you want to WORK. Never did I get bored or did it feel monotonous.
    I was so happy to be surrounded with a bunch of other women without judgement or hesitation.
    I highly recommend both LWL classes of any level and also one on one training with Rae. Happy to be here, can’t wait to get back. Thank you, thank you.

    Rae is awesome!! This was my first LWL class and definitely not my last. Rae is a great instructor and knows what she’s talking about. The environment was really motivating being in a class full of women who just want to lift heavy. Whenever Rae corrected form, she followed it with words of encouragement which I found really motivating to keep going. The vibe was overall great and one of the best sessions I have been to in the Chicagoland area!

    This class is amazing. I've learned so much about form and my body from this class. I now have the confidence and knowledge to go to lifting focused gyms on my own and not feel awkward or intimated. It's also great working out and working hard with a group of awesome women who are all there to support each other, work hard and achieve results. The class sizes are small enough that you can get individual attention from Rae. She is so knowledge and approachable! It's a GREAT work out too! I'm always sore in that good way for a day or two after and I love it. If you want to learn more about lifting and your body, take this class!

The classes are small enough that everyone gets some personal coaching from her. It helps that all of the other ladies in class are so friendly and are also willing to help you correct your form. My favorite thing about LWL is the supportive, empowering atmosphere. Everyone is encouraged to go at their own pace but still challenge themselves and work towards their goals. I definitely look forward to going to more classes and getting stronger. I would encourage any lady in Chicago to try Ladies Who Lift!

    I’ve been to a handful of LwL classes (and would go to every one if I had the time) and each and every one is amazing. Rae is truly incredible in how she structures the classes, explains the exercises and gives hands-on feedback throughout the entire class. She makes her available during the class for any question and is so positive and encouraging the entire time. I always take away something from each one, whether it’s a new exercise or way to perform an exercise I already I knew or just plain encouragement that I know will transition into my next workout. I can’t recommend LwL enough - every lady needs to go, at least once! And I’m sure you’ll be back once you do.

In the handful of LWL classes I've taken already, I've become much more comfortable and confident with my form and feel like I've started down a realistic, attainable path towards gaining strength. Rae is great at helping you master form, adjusting moves if you aren't quite strong enough for them yet, and is generally just incredibly supportive and patient. 10/10, 5 stars, would recommend.

The small class size allowed the trainer to circulate to everyone multiple times to correct form, that might be the best part! When lifting heavier and heavier remembering and practicing the correct forms and cues is imperative.

    It's not often that you get a heavy lifting environment that is also a safe space for women to learn and try things out without fearing some man-splaining from the guy on the next squat rack. Fortunately for us, Rae has created that environment. Ladies who Lift empowers attendees to step outside of their comfort zone and lift something heavy. Rae is able to scale up and down based on your abilities -- so no matter where you are in your lifting journey you feel comfortable and empowered to move in the best way to meet your goals. You'll cover the "basics" like deadlift, chest press and squat, but also try new things and free weight exercises you can replicate in your own gym -- so the man-splainers can learn something from you ;)

Just women picking up heavy stuff and supporting each other.

    I had been searching for a class like Rae's for a long time, and I'm so grateful to have finally found it. I love this class for many reasons. First, Rae is an amazing trainer. I had been lifting for years and she made some tweaks to my form that have allowed me to lift SO much more. The classes are dynamic, fun, and always a good workout. What's more, so much of exercise, especially for women, is about shrinking down -- getting as tiny as possible. Ladies Who Lift is about building yourself UP and getting stronger. There's no language about getting a certain type of body or being able to eat pizza later. Imagine, a workout class for women that is actually about working out, rather than striving to fit a specific image. Come to this class not only for the excellent training but for the environment that promotes working out to be strong, healthy, and empowered.

    I had been searching for a class like Rae's for a long time, and I'm so grateful to have finally found it. I love this class for many reasons. First, Rae is an amazing trainer. I had been lifting for years and she made some tweaks to my form that have allowed me to lift SO much more. The classes are dynamic, fun, and always a good workout. What's more, so much of exercise, especially for women, is about shrinking down -- getting as tiny as possible. Ladies Who Lift is about building yourself UP and getting stronger.

    I'd never found a form of exercise that I really loved but I've finally found it in Ladies Who Lift. I'm obsessed with Rae! I'd never done weightlifting before working with her because I was afraid of hurting myself but she is so attentive to everyone's form and creates such a down-to-earth and motivating exercise environment. Also gym culture can be super toxic but being around Rae all of that just melts away and you get to focus on your body's functionality. HIGHLY recommend this class.

    Rae's class is awesome! The energy in these classes is special. I have always enjoyed lifting, but it is often hard to find an environment to do so without being intimidated by others in the gym. Rae makes an empowering, fun, and comfortable atmosphere for all ladies to learn correct technique and form of multiple lifts. There is nothing better than feeling strong as a woman (physically and mentally!) and these classes are a great way to build up your confidence in the gym. Rae also does a great job working with each person individually, correcting form and challenging. Definitely will be coming back and recommending to friends!

    I totally love Ladies Who Lift. It's such a supportive community of women who just show up and put in work (hard work!). It's nice to be in a place where you don't have to worry if some sweaty supp bro is going to come give you unsolicited advice or make a weird comment, and it's great to be able to feel comfortable using a variety of equipment in a powerlifting gym without feeling like you don't deserve to be there. Rae is an amazing coach who encourages and also offers corrections and suggestions to maximize your workout and progress in your lifts. Also her playlists are consistently killer and really motivating to push through that last tough rep!

    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!

    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)

    In the past, I’ve found the gym to be an overwhelming and intimidating experience. I didn’t know how to properly use the equipment and felt uncomfortable to be around the majority of men. LWL has provided a space for women to workout in a judgement free zone. I feel so strong and comfortable around these ladies. LWL has taught me how to use equipment and independently workout in a gym. I used to be afraid to lift heavy weights because I didn’t want to bulk up. Now, I’m continuously increasing my weights. I actually look more lean and tone than I’ve ever been before. LWL is the best!

With the basics under our belts from Level 1, we got right to work and had an excellent workout! As a Level 2 newbie, Rae and my group members were incredibly supportive in correcting my form and encouraging me to try new things (like adding weight!).

    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.

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.

    Ladies Who Lift Level 1 was so great, so I decided to try Level 2. Even better! Rae does a tremendous job at instructing, coaching and motivating. It's so great to be around like-minded women who are looking for a challenging workout.

She has done more than set up some workouts, she's started a little community of like minded ladies who are ready to be there best! Ladies Who Lift is a must if you want a positive environment to lift some heavy sh*t!

    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!

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.

I cannot say enough great things about this class and am already looking forward to another one soon! ","teacher_response":null}

The classes are small enough that everyone gets some personal coaching from her. It helps that all of the other ladies in class are so friendly and are also willing to help you correct your form.

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.

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.
