Mission Statement

Renewed Fitness is dedicated to guiding people into good health though effective workouts and good nutrition. Relate. Release. Renew.

Working through physical challenges in the gym starts with working through mental challenges by facing your fears and renewing your mind. Exercising through those challenges strengthens not only your muscles, but also your resolve to conquer everyday stresses, which leads to an elevated quality of life.

Relate. Release. Renew.

Relate to what life issues may be stopping you from reaching your fitness goals, release those things and renew your mind and thoughts to help change your life.

About the Founder

Renisha James was born in Chicago and raised in Evanston, IL. She’s an AFAA Certified Personal Trainer with an unquenched desire to help others change the way they think about fitness and health. She is an avid runner and has completed several 5K’s, 10K’s and 3 full marathons. She serves as an ambassador for Nike Women and is an active member with Chicago chapter of  Black Girls RUN!, a national running group for women.

Renisha has always been fascinated with the human body and its capabilities, but her passion intensified as people began to seek her guidance to meet their fitness goals. That passion was further escalated following the loss of her grandmother to complications from diabetes in 2008. It became her ultimate aspiration to help her community connect the dots between health, physical activity and a more nutritious diet.

Renisha is convinced that everyone has great potential to be informed and knowledgeable about what it takes to be fit, one renewed mind and body at a time.
