I am Rhonda Christensen, a Personal Trainer serving North Hollywood, Toluca Lake, Burbank, Hollywood, Glendale, and beyond.
Rhonda Christensen Personal Fitness meets each client’s individual needs with customized programs to achieve maximum results.
This one-on-one approach allows you to work on specific fitness goals, whether it’s cardio or circuit training, weight loss or gain, training for your first marathon, or tackling current health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, etc.… all in a safe and comfortable environment. I can also assist you with your diet and nutritional needs.
I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer as well as an ACE Certified Small Group Fitness Instructor.
Cardio and Endurance Training– Cardio training should be done 3-5 times a week. Otherwise, your training will likely not produce the results you are looking for. There are a wide variety of choices from which to choose, including walking, jogging, cycling, the elliptical, dance, jumping rope-the list is endless!
Circuit and Strength Training– Circuit Training conditions the body by using high-intensity aerobics. It focuses on strength building and muscular endurance. Strength Training improves muscular strength by gradually increasing the ability to resist force by using free weights, machines, or your own body weight.
TRX– TRX Suspension Training is a workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You are in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise-you simply add or decrease the resistance by adjusting your body position. It is fun, a killer workout, and never gets old! Check it out at www.trx.com.
Nutrition Counseling– If you are trying to lose, gain or simply maintain your weight, I can assist you on how to choose foods that are best for your health and fitness goals. With a combination of healthy eating and a well-designed fitness plan, you will have the tools to succeed and achieve your goals.
*Before starting any fitness regimen, please consult your physician to make sure you are healthy enough to begin. If you have any physical/or health-related issues, please let me know about those up front so we can create a plan to best deal with them.
“I can honestly say I look forward to training with Rhonda every week! This is coming from someone who did not want to work out and lacked the self-motivation to work out on my own.
Although she’s a 30-minute drive away, I feel extremely fortunate to have found her! She truly cares about your personal well-being and is very supportive and motivating. I have had a personal trainer in the past. However, Rhonda’s style and variety of exercises surpass those of my previous trainer. She customizes the training to fit your personal goals, and from day one, Rhonda helped to guide me and educate me on my fitness journey, equipping me with the mental toughness to push myself to reach my goals and even exceed them. If you’re looking for a better quality of life with a trainer who is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely cares, then Rhonda is the trainer for you!”

“I’ve worked out with other trainers before, and this has definitely been the most successful experience. I feel great, my clothes fit (!), and I am NEVER BORED! We do very different exercises each time, Rhonda is careful to adjust the resistance with each set, and I really feel like I have her full attention throughout the entire session. She also gives you the full hour, unlike most trainers whose hour is 50 minutes–that’s 20% extra in my book. Just a great experience–I would highly recommend her unless you’re trying to take my time slot =).”

rhonda_002“Rhonda calls herself a trainer, but really, that’s not the total of what she does. She is more of a health coach who can put together a blend of workout routines and dietary choices that help you reach your health goals. Rhonda is sensitive to bodily limitations from injuries or age, so even if you have never been to the gym, she will find workarounds to help you get fit and achieve your goals. And if you are already in good shape, Rhonda can help you push to the next level where you can see even better results.”
-Alan R., Los Angeles
“I had never used a trainer before, and I had no idea what to expect but, when I met with Rhonda, I was impressed. She sat me down and asked what my goals were and what I wanted to achieve. She did a body composition analysis and took great care to craft a series of workouts that were tailor-made to meet my goals. She understood my busy schedule and designed workouts to fit with it. Anyone looking for a trainer should contact Rhonda. She is great!”
