Connie Rice

Unlike many trainers, I did not grow up participating in sports and had no experience whatsoever in an active lifestyle—until I moved to Aspen in my early 20s. The lifestyle of the Roaring Fork Valley prompted me to join in and become active myself. This led me to sharing what I learned with others. The desire to help people achieve a healthy lifestyle and meet their fitness goals motivated me to obtain my personal trainer certification. In addition, I have worked in the sports medicine field for many years. This has given me a unique perspective and knowledge which I integrate into my personal training.

As your personal trainer I will assess where you are currently, set goals with you, create a program/plan for you, and coach and motivate you to stick with it so those goals can be achieved. Consistency over time is the cornerstone that I emphasize, and the nutritional component is not overlooked. Although hard work, I think most workouts should be fun and empowering.

I am a certified American Council on Exercise personal trainer, a certified TRX instructor, and am trained to teach SpinPower indoor cycling. Other skills include small group and one-on-one training—from teens to seniors. I love learning and keeping current about health and fitness and currently am working towards a certificate as an Orthopedic Exercise Specialist.
My hobbies include running, hiking, skiing and biking, spending time with my husband and also giving back to our community.
