Hi, I'm Rita! Strength & Fitness Coach

I've always been a mover. I got my BFA in dance, choreography and performance from Ohio State University and performed professionally in NYC. As a dancer, I always struggled with my weight and body image.

I fell in love with Barre in 2009, and became a nationally certified Barre instructor and certified personal trainer (NASM).  I created BolderBARRE® in 2012 and founded my own studio in 2016.  In 2020, I founded Living Bolder®  to serve the unique needs of women in perimenopause and beyond.

In my mid-forties I discovered my body was changing - the things that once worked no longer delivered results. It wasn’t until I began Strength Training that I saw real positive changes in my body. For the past 18 months, I’ve immersed myself in what the top experts and research has to say about fitness and wellness for women over 40.

 I created my Bolder STRONG strength training programs especially for the unique needs of midlife women. Each week contains a carefully planned mix of Strength, HIIT and Mobility workouts. 

I've been teaching dance, movement and fitness for over 4 decades and have taught over 3,000 classes. 

 Are you done making excuses?  Are you ready to put yourself first?  If you are a "Hell Yes!" join me for "Midlife Made BOLDER!"
