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.
