Rhona Stocksdale

Serving as Fort Ritchie Community Center's Fitness Coordinator, Rhona teaches Pilates, Intervals, Mix it Up, RX Rip, Half & Half, and Senior Sweat. Here's a bit about her experience...

"I first started at the YMCA in Waynesboro PA as an instructor. I wanted to further my education in fitness and also get into personal training. With that said I went back to school through World Instructor Training School (WITS), at Hagerstown Community College and received my personal training certificate.

With this certification I must uphold my responsibility of keeping my training up to date. Every two years I take courses pertaining to fitness; it could be for seniors, children, and many other things relating to the exercise industry, for example, functional fitness, strength training, and exercise nutrition.

Once getting my certification, I started my personal training and fitness instructor expertise at Fort Ritchie Community Center in 2009. I enjoy the variety of age groups I work with, and the challenges I face to figure out ways to work with the participants in my classes.

After four years of working at FRCC, I was asked to take on the role as Fitness Coordinator. I now schedule classes, hire instructors for our many classes and think of new ideas to keep our classes exciting and new.

Overall, I have always loved working at FRCC, this has been like my family and I know many of our members feel the same."

Amber Reaver

Amber is an instructor of RX Rip, Pilates, Mix it Up, Half & Half, and Intervals. Here's a bit from her!

"Hi! My name is Amber Reaver. I always had a knack for fitness, but after having my second child and becoming a stay-at-home mom, I wanted to focus on my health.

After taking classes at Fort Ritchie Community Center, I found my passion for fitness. I wanted to help motivate others to reach their fitness potential, so I became certified kickboxing and pilates. Since 2013, I have been teaching those classes at FRCC, as well as providing personal training to many clients.

I love being part of the Community Center, meeting new people, and most importantly setting a great example for my three boys to stay healthy and active!"
