FOUNDER OF A GREENPOINT-BASED IN-HOME TRAINING SERVICE, THIS CALI NATIVE BRINGS NEEDED ENERGY TO OUR BATTERED WORKOUT REGIMEN

Presenting Camille Eroy-Reveles, founder of The L Trainer in-home personal training service:

Background: Originally from California, but came to New York to complete a masters degree in Public Health at Columbia University.

Approach: Using exercise to manage chronic disease and improve vitality. She has worked in a number of fitness settings, including commercial gyms, private studios, homes, physical therapy settings, and community centers.

Profiled in: IDEA Fitness Journal’s “Inspiring the next generation of fitness professionals.” She was the personal trainer for the Associated Press video segment “Exercising an Aging Population,” and has appeared on a NY 1 News segment on regulating the fitness industry. Eroy-Reveles has also been contracted to provide continuing education to such groups and companies as the American Academy of Personal Training, Equinox Fitness, Focus Integrated Fitness, CLAY Fitness, and American Leisure.

Regimen: “I really enjoy taking group exercise classes. I typically take class five times each week. My latest addiction is indoor cycling, which is easier on my knees than running. I also foam-roll daily and strength train three to four times each week.”

Biggest Misconception about personal training: “That a trainer may be great or not great because of how he or she looks. Remember what works for one body may not work for the next. The best personal trainers typically are those that have spent the most time getting educated.”
