Christine’s passion and belief in her clients potential allows them to succeed beyond their own self-created limitations!

Christine is the co-owner and one of the Lead Trainers at RHF. It is obvious that she loves what she does. The role of fitness in the health and vitality of individuals has driven her passion to make it a full time way of life of her for over 15 years. During those years she has been dedicated to educating her clients on the realistic, simplistic and effective keys to living and maintaining lifelong health and vitality. Her goal is to witness each and every single one of her clients become “the master of their own body” by bringing awareness to the mental, physical and emotional components of training and transformation.

Time spent with her clients in the gym will not only have them challenging their body, it will have them acknowledging and defeating self-limiting belief systems, learning the importance of mind-body connection and proper movement patterns.

Christine recognizes that each individual has a completely different vision of what success and health looks like. For that reason, each training session is tailored specifically for them and their current state of mental and physical health, and is based on improving their strengths, correcting their imbalances and working toward their individual goals.

I have been working with Christine Sachse since 2012 on my fitness training. She is a remarkable trainer as well as an individual. I am not always easy to motivate! Sometimes because I have an inflammatory arthritis, I want to skip my sessions. I could easily hide behind the fact that I am a busy working mother of three children. I know however that I will disappoint Christine as much as myself, so I reluctantly go. I am always pleased after. I feel better and Christine deals with me in a kind, compassionate, yet professional manner. She pushes me to do things that I would never have done on my own, and for that I am grateful. My strength and mobility are much improved. I am ecstatic that she and Claire have opened up Roseland Health & Fitness. I recommend them both highly to my patients and friends.

As a life-long learner, continuing education is a crucial ongoing commitment for Michael in his desire to be of greatest service to the broadest spectrum of patients. 

Michael’s journey to massage has been circuitous. He graduated from the Schulich School of Business at York University with an Honours degree in 2006 and went on to a successful 12-year career on Bay Street in Toronto in the Financial Services sector.

He is currently registered, in good standing, with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. Michael believes that massage can be an integral component of any rehabilitation plan as well as help minimize chronic pain and increase body awareness for sustained well-being. His approach to treatment is multimodal and comprehensive, utilizing a combination of several therapeutic techniques and remedial exercises individually tailored for optimal patient outcomes. Michael’s versatile skill set allows him to effectively treat patients both clothed and with sheets. As a life-long learner, continuing education is a crucial ongoing commitment for Michael in his desire to be of greatest service to the broadest spectrum of patients. To date, Michael has experienced the most tangible success with individuals suffering from chronic tension headaches.

Michael is a family man and currently resides in Burlington with his wife and two sons. He enjoys his daily meditation practice, hockey and yoga.
