Personal trainers – The SeattleGYM Health Club

Personal Trainers at The SeattleGYM

Christina Baserman

After a corporate career as a systems engineer, Christina finally found her bliss as a fitness instructor both as a personal trainer and yoga teacher. Drawing from the teachings of Rod Stryker and Gary Kraftsow, her style of hatha yoga is to move dynamically in and out of poses to lengthen before holding statically to strengthen.

She is also an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, fusing traditional weight-lifting with functional movements for a well-rounded regimen. Whether in the yoga studio or the gym, Christina believes there’s room for both hard work and humor, and that vigorous activity gives way to ease and creativity.

Rachel Henneck

Longtime SeattleGYM class participants probably have been in a class of hers before, as the SeattleGYM (then ProRobics) was the first club she connected with when she moved to Seattle in 2007.

Rachel grew up avoiding P.E. classes, favoring involvement with music and academics, but secretly wishing she had been a ballet kid or gymnastics kid. Finally, after finishing college at 19, she picked up going to the gym and discovered group exercise. She was recruited to teach before long and has never looked back.

As a personal trainer, Rachel is unique in that she values intensity, technical precision and therapeutic value equally. Her recipe for a private client adjusts this blend based on the client’s own goals and assessed needs. Her goal, while providing a workout, is to educate you enough to understand why exercises are chosen, how to execute them accurately, and to prevent residual stress in the body from showing up later as strain or injury.

Rachel at for rates and scheduling!

Amber Horn

Over the years I have gained an extensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology through my massage practice. Adding personal training to my offerings seemed like the next logical step!

I have had the pleasure of training clients at The Seattle Gym since 2014. It has, and continues to be, an incredible experience taking my knowledge from massage therapy and fitness to create personalized and effective exercise plans. My passion for education in holistic wellness didn’t stop there. In 2016 I finished a nutrition program with the Nutritional Therapy Association and have been seeing 1:1 nutrition clients since then. I have also completed other continuing education in this field including Applied Functional Medicine, Amino Acid Therapy, and a combination of Applied Kinesiology and Autonomic Response Technique.

My goal with nutritional therapy is to help you improve energy, mood, and overall health by getting off the blood sugar rollercoaster, eliminating digestive symptoms, and reducing toxins.

Steve Quandt

I’ve been a personal trainer for 7 years and excited to be at The Seattle Gym in Queen Anne. I enjoy working with clients of all kinds, but especially the elderly, injured, or differently abled.

I’ve enjoyed exercise and sports my entire life, and I try to bring this passion into my clients’ sessions. I also do my best to make the sessions as fun as possible, as everything is easier with laughter. I am very flexible in my training style, so I can help you with almost any physical goal you may have.

Throughout my life I’ve enjoyed organized sports, distance running, martial arts, skiing, and weight lifting. As I’ve gotten older, my activities have come with more aches and pains, as well as some traumatic injuries. Each one of these injuries has brought more knowledge and awareness to my practice, and I enjoy sharing preventive and rehabilitating exercises with my clients when needed.

A few years ago, a client and I were featured on KIRO7. Please feel free to text me at 608-206-1045, or email me at Thanks! .

Frankie Rongo

I started lifting weights at the age of 12 in 1971 to rehabilitate my body after a near fatal sledding accident which left me bed ridden for 6 months.. Through weight training I taught myself to walk and run again to be able to play football and baseball. Through out high school and college I was always the unofficial trainer for every team I was on.

I came to Seattle in 1988 at which time I became the fitness director for the Metropolitan Health Club till 1994. I then opened my own personal training studio (Frankie's Gym) in Capitol Hill till 2000. From 2000 till 2004 I was the fitness director for Golds Gym. From 2004 till present I have been at Prorobics/Seattle Gym up at Queen Anne.

ACE Certified, IDEA Elite trainer status, Super slow Certified. I train the extreme beginner to the advanced competitive athlete (bodybuilding, figure and powerlifting competitions). I am currently a Masters Competitor (over 50) in bodybuilding and powerlifting and hold multiple state titles and an American record deadlift of 502lb, AAU World Powerlifting Champion and NPF Masters Physique Pro.

Also therapy and rehabilitation training along with your good ole fashion full body or body split workouts.
