Personal Trainers in West Plano, TX
Growing up, Raechel’s mom was a Personal Trainer and would bring Raechel to the gym while she taught aerobics classes. As she got older, Raechel stayed active and became involved in dance, which she continues to love and make time for today. Noticing how dance and exercise improved her life, she wanted to help others feel those same improvements. She set her focus on making her passion a career and pursued a Degree in Kinesiology.
After graduating college, Raechel was working at David’s Bridal when a trainer from The Perfect Workout, Charlotte, came in for a fitting. In the middle of her fitting, Charlotte took a call from a client to help them with an issue. Raechel was struck by the amount of personal attention and care Charlotte was giving the client, especially on her day off. Raechel decided to check out The Perfect Workout to see learn more about the company. That decision changed her life and her career path.
After going through a tough interview and an intense workout, Raechel felt that her approach aligned with The Perfect Workout’s philosophy and environment. She took the next step in her fitness career and joined our team of Personal Trainers in November 2015.
Raechel quickly became one of the first nutrition coaches in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. In addition to coaching clients through workouts, she guided many of those clients to successful weight loss results. One success led to the next, and her experience as a nutrition coach helped land her a new opportunity with The Perfect Workout as Facility Manager of the West Plano studio.
Being a Personal Trainer and the Facility Manager of a studio is a lot of responsibility, but Raechel feels that being in both roles is extremely rewarding. She loves helping people gain a better quality of life and get stronger both physically and mentally. “The 1-on-1 dynamic allows me to pay special attention to each client’s form and make sure they’re staying safe.” She and her team love working with clients because they get to see firsthand how slow-motion strength training can be adapted and individualized for anyone. The trainers work together to make sure they are doing the absolute best to apply our method of training to all of the West Plano clients, regardless of age, body type, or fitness level.
As Facility Manager, Raechel loves coming to work and leading such a positive group of people. “My trainers are my family. They do their best every day. We really balance each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
In addition to helping clients achieve results, Raechel finds her own fitness constantly improving at The Perfect Workout. “After I graduated from college, I would train for three hours, three times a week. Now, I do 20 minutes, twice a week, and I’m stronger than ever and have better tone all over.”
Kimberly Buford was raised in Plano, Texas where she developed a passion for nutrition and fitness. Kimberly had spent a cumulative year of her life in Physical Therapy for various injuries, and many of the exercises that rehabilitated her were with slow-motion strength training. “I dedicated myself to my recovery and even impressed my therapists with my progress!”
She knew she wanted a career where she could help people and prevent and rehab other people’s injuries like she had been helped. Kimberly had worked for many years in the health industry teaching classes on nutrition and skin care, but ultimately she was inspired to get her Personal Trainer certification.
Kimberly was excited when she learned The Perfect Workout used the same slow method she had used before, and there was one right in her hometown! “I took to it quickly and was excited to share with others what had been so helpful to me.” In 2017, Kimberley became certified, joined the team and quickly worked her way up to Lead Certification Supervisor of the Dallas region.
Kimberly has helped many clients along their fitness journeys. She’s had clients who have seen significant reduction to their formerly crippling Fibromyalgia symptoms. One of her clients has lost almost 12" off her hips! And another client was unable to stand from his wheelchair on his own, and can now not only stand, but walk extended distances with little assistance… just to name a few! Kimberly’s also achieved some big wins with her own health as well. “I am thrilled to share that I no longer have a daily need for anti-inflammatories or pain medication for old nagging injuries!”
One of Kimberly’s favorite things about being a part of The Perfect Workout is the private setting of each studio. “It allows for a focused atmosphere, free of distractions. We can really get to the heart of any issues or struggles the client faces and find sustainable solutions. The relationship building is wonderful!”
When she is not busy in the studio, Kimberly also enjoys reading mysteries and hanging with her loving cat, Crash, and adorable pug mix, Ernie. Her goals are to continue her growth at The Perfect Workout. “I would love to expand my role as a trainer and continue to help improving our company as we expand across the country!”
The day Tyler’s wife whispered the words “We’re pregnant!” he became determined to get as healthy as possible. Though he was active, Tyler became even more serious about making changes in order to be the best husband and father he could be.
With a new motivation, he spent countless hours doing cardio at the gym, and then would lift weights afterward. While he reached his goal of getting thinner and losing 35 pounds, he could not seem to gain any muscle.
After trying slow-motion strength training for the first time, he knew it was the missing piece to his own workout regimen. He was so excited to have found such an incredible method. Not only was he more motivated than ever to remain in shape, he decided he wanted to share this lifestyle with others. Tyler became certified with The Perfect Workout and joined the West Plano team as a Personal Trainer, helping each of his clients to become the best version of themselves.
