Leadership Team

Cori

Cori

Founder

The reason I can get my clients great results is because I’ve been the idiot that has made every mistake and experimented…Even with ridiculous things. I’ve been stuck in that diet and deprive, binge, guilt, binge, try a new diet cycle.

I’ve ignored injuries and pushed through only to end up more injured. I’ve gained weight and lost weight. I’ve worked out hard and then slacked off because I’m so burnt out.

And because I’ve made all the mistakes, I now know what works. That’s why I can help you.

I realize that each person has unique needs and no two fitness journeys will look alike. I’m a fitness nerd and former Division I tennis player and the 2011 Massachusetts/Rhode Island State Best Overall Raw Lifter. I can’t wait to help you on your journey 😊

Ryan

Ryan

Cori's Main Helper

I’m Cori’s #1 sidekick and #1 fan. I grew up playing baseball and I’ve always had a passion for competition and learning. I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA where I met Cori while she was crushing her tennis career at BU.

You’ll find me behind the camera at Redefining Strength and lurking in the facebook groups enjoying stalking everyone’s progress. When I’m not doing that I love playing music (Check out my band This Regret on Spotify), being outside and eating burritos (sometimes macro friendly, sometimes not 🌯)

HEIDI

HEIDI

1:1 Training Manager

I have been the person that was extremely obese… I got a wakeup call in my early 20’s. I started exercising like crazy (to Tae Bo) and ate waaaaay too many grilled chicken salads 🥗
About 150 pounds and a few years later, I joined a Kempo Karate dojo and started a Kickboxing class there along with Bootcamp, Self Defense and a run club. My Love for cooking and eating good food pulled me in the direction to explore nutrition coaching. I am driven to help as many as I can to reach their goals and feel good about themselves!
Michelle

Michelle

Lead Dietitian

My name is Michelle Alley and I am a registered dietitian. I believe in keeping nutrition simple and sustainable. We should enjoy our eating, not suffer from it. I know that small wins day to day create momentum towards larger goals. My spark for nutrition came as a collegiate track athlete who learned quite literally that I could not outrun a bad diet. 

Since then I have earned two degrees in nutrition (BS in Dietetics, BS in Health Sciences with a Nutrition Emphasis) I and have worked the last 9 years counseling others to reach their nutrition and fitness goals. I’m an avid hiker, and love the outdoors. I’m also a bit competitive and love finding new challenges to continue to push myself and see what I am capable of. My current fitness journey has me pursuing triathlons and trail runs.

SUSA

SUSA

Group Training Manager

My name is Susa and I have always been dabbling with fitness a run here a swim there some serious Jane Fonda at some stage, pink leg warmers and all. As my kids where getting more and more independent I realize that Ellen DeGeneres was becoming my new best friend and I needed a new “hobby”.

I enrolled in a Personal Trainer course through the American Council of Exercise, opened up a Fitness Studio and it just so happened that every one that signed up for my classes was 65 and older.

They each came with a set of range of motion problems and that send me down the rabbit hole of rehab. On this quest for answers I stumbled onto the queen of rehab and prehab Cori and here I am having the best time of my life.

Fitness, athletics, and nutrition have always been apart of my life! I grew up playing every sport out there, but truly fell in love with soccer. I eventually went on to play Division 1 soccer but during that time realized my passion was more in nutrition and overall fitness, not just soccer. I graduated in nutrition and dietetics.

I married my high school sweetheart who was also a college athlete so you bet there’s always a competition going on in our house.

Athletics, fitness, and nutrition have been a part of my life since I was a young kid. I grew up playing a variety of sports, but basketball was the one that stuck.

My dedication to fitness has gotten me through the ups and downs of life, including breast cancer. At the age of 50, after leaving school counseling and a long time career as I counselor, I began to follow my passion in fitness as a personal trainer and swim coach.

Not one regret as it is never too late to begin a new career. From coaching both age group and adult swimmers to be better athletes, educating athletes the benefits of functional fitness in every day life, and pushing myself to continue to pursue new interests, like cycling. I love encouraging clients through the process of their personal fitness journey. Fitness is forever and we are never too old to begin to be active and fit.

Kendra

Kendra

Coach

What haven’t I tried? Either as a sport, diet, fitness fad or latest craze? The answer: nothing (or at least nothing that I can think of right now. Except skydiving). I have been out of shape and fat, uber fit and fast, healthy and strong, pregnant and not. This is to say that the benefit of age is truly wisdom and I know what really works both personally and scientifically speaking. As a lifelong learner, fitness and movement have always been part of how I operate day to day, as well as a coach and teacher. I have been so fortunate to share the gift of fitness for over 30 years!

I have seen a lot and learned even more and still have even more to learn. One of my biggest lessons on this journey is that it’s easier to reach our goals together than it is to go it alone! When I’m not training, coaching or teaching you can find me walking my dog, hiking, biking (all types: gravel, mountain, road, cruiser…) traveling, cooking and sharing good laughs with my family and friends. I hope to share some good times with you too!

Many years later, I am still very active. Cycling and swimming are still some of my favorite activities. I have also added weight lifting, hiking and snowshoeing. Now-a-days, my passion for sports complement my love for nature. That is where I am the happiest.

I was born in northern California and lived through out the state until 1998 when my family relocated to Connecticut. Through out my life I’ve been an athlete (runner) and have been surrounded by them as well since my mother trained for the Olympics in the 80’s as a figure skater and was a coach for a couple of decades after that.

I’ve been on many intramural volleyball/softball teams after graduating from the University of Connecticut, Storrs. I also ran 10 half marathons and over 20 5k’s with a plan to do more of course!

After working in the fitness industry for over 10 years as a trainer, group fitness instructor and group fitness manager, I’ve grown to be the most passionate about meeting new people and assisting them in their fitness journey in a way that works for them.

Currently, I still teach Spin and Barre classes 1-2 times a week and workout about 5-6 times a week. Having a 3 year old boy motivates me more to stay active to keep up with him! Theres nothing better than to be part of a like-minded community to help lift each other up to live healthy optimal lives.

Having grown up as an athlete, health and fitness have always played a major role in my life. I spent my early years running track and pole vaulting in high school. When I went off to college, I made the decision to end my pole vaulting career due to injuries I had obtained through countless hours of pole vaulting. I decided to focus on maintaining and improving my strength in ways that would not negatively impact my body.  

Fast forward to today, as a wife and mother, I still actively work to keep my body healthy and strong. I feel so lucky to be part of a community that fuels others to make the same bettering commitment to themselves.

I have loved sports for as long as I can remember! Throughout high school I was a three-sport athlete playing basketball, softball, and tennis. Once I graduated high school I became a bit lost without the scheduled workouts I had grown accustomed to.

That next step of taking responsibility for my own healthy eating and exercise program really opened my eyes to my new passion. In 2015 I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Fitness Entrepreneurship and become a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM.

Over the past few years I have become increasingly passionate about spending time outside rather than inside of a gym. My favorite activity now is hiking with my husband and our Siberian Husky puppy. I’ve been married for 2.5 years and we are expecting our first child in September! I love to read, travel (especially throughout Northern Michigan!), and spend time with my family.
