"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much"
MEET THE RS TEAM
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 😊
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 🌯)
I am Cori’s favorite sister in law! I have had a passion for sports my entire life. From soccer to water polo to baseball and gymnastics! I’ve always loved competition. I found volleyball in middle school and continued my volleyball career into college where I received both an Undergraduate and Masters Degree in Psychology.
I set high goals for myself and worked hard to earn awards during my college career including: 3 First Team All-Conferences, Honorable Mention All-American, Libero Of The Year, 3 First Team All-Academic, and Female Athlete Of The Year. I have a passion for people and I love connecting and hearing about others fitness journeys and goals they’re trying to achieve! I look forward to chatting with you
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.
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.
My name is Cora and I have been involved in fitness and athletics as long as I can remember. I played almost every sport growing up, and continued my volleyball career through college. My first experiences with true fitness and lifting was in high school, and I loved it. That drew me in and it has been a passion ever since.I studied Health Education in college and also received my first fitness certification in CrossFit.
The last 12 years I have been coaching CrossFit, nutrition, personal training, spin as well as furthering my education in this industry.
My personal fitness routine has evolved over the years. I love trying new things and challenging my body and mind. I just recently started mountain biking and completed my first Ultra Trail Running Event!Fitness is such a fun way to connect with people and better yourself!

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 experience playing college basketball taught me the importance of work ethic and discipline and that now transfers over to coaching my clients. I love working with clients who are ready to work hard and commit to a goal!
When it comes to fitness in my life currently, I love to run (road and trail running), lift heavy weights, work on my mobility, hike, ski, and take my dogs for walks. I love to eat healthy. I track my macros most days and focus on keeping my protein up. I love to cook and bake and try new recipes!

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.

Hi! My name is Randi and I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband and son. I have been in the fitness industry since 2008. I came from a pretty unhealthy family (read: we didn’t eat veggies and exercise wasn’t a thing). It wasn’t until I entered college that I really found a love for eating the right things to fuel my body and finding ways to move that felt good. I rowed for a season with Humboldt State in northern California, and that summer also got a job working as a front desk staff for a small gym.
Those two things changed my life forever. I went from being a sedentary girl who was winded after 10 minutes on an elliptical to being someone who ran half marathons for fun. I am elated to have the opportunity to change that narrative, from the start, with my own child. We currently spend most of our free time hiking and exploring the world around us. I know the struggles of lifestyle change personally and I am excited to have the opportunity to help you through them!

Hi. I am Venise from Ontario, Canada. For as long as I can remember, I have always been involved in sports. As a kid, I was always outside riding my bike, swimming, playing hockey or climbing trees. As a teenager, I got involved in competitive sports such as water-polo, badminton and broomball.
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 had the luck to hike in beautiful places like the Amalfi Coast in Italy and the French Riviera in France. Throughout the years, I suffered many injuries, which motivated me to learn more about effective training methods and the benefits of proper nutrition. After getting my Personal Trainer certification, I continued with a variety of Nutrition courses. I enjoy learning and sharing what I learn.”
💪Super Strong With…Plant-based nutrition, endurance training
Hi! My name is Wendy. It might surprise you to learn that I haven’t always been into fitness. At school I dropped out of sport aged 14 in favour of double maths – awkward teen years! – and exercise in my 20s and 30s was patchy. I finally found my groove when I decided to train for Marathon des Sables (156-mile desert race) for my 40th birthday and placed high in my age group.
Two years later, after my son arrived, I swapped corporate life for personal training. I feel I had a bit of a lucky escape with some of the moves I did while pregnant working with a trainer and then couldn’t find any courses aimed at helping athletic women come back to sport safely after birth. So I decided to specialize in these areas, which I find highly rewarding. I love ultrarunning, Muay Thai and trying new sports. I live on the coast in Devon, England.

I have always had a passion for sports, fitness, nutrition and competition! Sports and activity have always been a huge part of my life.

I also enjoy the beach, working out, playing tennis with my son, spending time with family and my husband, lots of coffee, reality TV shows and walks with my dog. I am very happy to be a part of the RS family and I Look forward to getting to know YOU!
I’ve been in the health & fitness industry for about 7 years, but the journey started long before that! I played softball and water polo in high school, but it wasn’t until I gained 30lbs in college that I started really focusing on my nutrition and fitness! I lost the weight and have been on a journey of personal growth ever since. I found my niche in Obstacle Course Racing about 5 years ago.
It inspires me, and I have found a love of inspiring others to reach for their goals as well! I recently had my first child, which started a whole new set of obstacles to overcome, but I feel blessed every day to be a role model for my L.O. and for anyone else who aspires to reach their health and fitness goals! I’m also a total cinephile who loves cheesy ’80s horror movies!
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.
I have always been drawn to the health and wellness field! My bachelor’s in recreation and fitness studies led me down the path of recreation therapy and I have worked with numerous populations including youth at risk, seniors, and those with mental illness. However, all of my additional education and certificates have never truly helped me develop a healthy relationship with food or overcome a distorted body image.
Since joining the program as a client, I am finally making peace with my ability to properly nourish my body without the endless mind chatter that has consumed my brain for almost 50 years! I am so excited to share my experience with others reaching out to us for support.

I am new to the world of fitness andI have a passion for creativity and helping others tell their stories. Working toward my journalism degree really showed me that the possibilities are endless in the digital world!
When I am not wrangling up potential unicorns I am doing email marketing for my church and creating content for small business owners in San Diego.
However my true passions are obsessing over my adorable pup Spud and rewatching Parks and Rec and the Office with my husband for the billionth time!
Fitness and health have always been apart of my life in some form or fashion. Growing up I played all kinds of sports. Whether it was softball, basketball, or volleyball, I enjoyed being active, being on a team, and letting my competitive side show. I ended up going to Florida State University for college, where I continued to play sports through intramural and on my sorority team.
I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Family and Child Sciences and later obtained my Master’s degree in Family Therapy. I love to hike, bake, watch movies, and snuggle my pups!
Hi! I’m Brittani! I love being part of the Redefining Strength team because I am constantly inspired by the determination and motivation of our clients. The self-empowerment that Cori teaches is just so rad to watch come to life!
When I’m not working for RS, I am busy growing the in-home private chef catering business I built with my husband. Aaaand when I’m not doing that, I am hanging out with my husband and our cavapoo, Greta Garbo, and getting our home prepared for the arrival of our baby girl in January!
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.”
In school I was always active playing sports such as volleyball, basketball and softball. I loved working on a team with fellow classmates and being competitive.
