It’s ok for a lady to be a bad ass, and Regina is a bad ass. She works hard, she has great life balance and she has the best arms in the gym! One thing we love about Regina is that she has a host of activities outside the gym that makes the work she does here relevant and functional. She’s an avid golfer, hiker and mountain climber and has recently taken up race walking with a Portland to Coast group. She’s always quick to ask questions, to incorporate new things that feel helpful and is committed to her fitness as a lifestyle and it shows. She’s an absolute dream client and joy to have at the studio.

Name: Regina Hauser

Age: 58 (damn!)

Length of time with Hyatt Training and date when you started: I joined Hyatt Training in October 2015, just shy of three years.

Trainer: Jeremy Hyatt

What were your goals when you started? I think my goals were endurance, strength and fun.

What are your goals today? Survival! Sort of kidding, working with my body to be able to continue doing the things I love like hiking, trekking, climbing, just being active. I’m participating in the Portland to Coast walk again and my team wants to finish in the top 3. I think that means aiming for 11 minute miles. That will be challenging!

What has been your biggest challenge? My biggest challenge is dealing with a cranky hip that will need to be replaced, low impact but high value cardio, and working with Jeremy to find the right ways to do certain exercises.

What have been your biggest areas of improvement? Ever so slowly I’m improving mentally. I’m enjoying the journey, taking physical hiccups in stride. And my pull ups and push ups!

What is your favorite thing about Hyatt Training? I love the camaraderie and friendly vibe.

What is your favorite thing about your personal trainer? I really appreciate Jeremy’s knowledge and attention to how I am feeling week to week. I appreciate that he has a good sense of humor as well.

What is your proudest achievement or biggest accomplishment since you began working with Hyatt Training: I was pretty excited to perform well in my first walking of the Portland to Coast, sub 12 minute miles on all three legs!

What have you learned: Keep on moving! Working out is still the best medicine for darn near everything.

What advice would you give to other people starting on their fitness journey? Think less about the goals you’ve set for yourself and allow yourself to enjoy the training as it happens. The journey is the fun part.
