ABOUT | Rachel Speck

Speck Fitness is a ballet and fitness company that was started in 2010 by Rachel Speck. Rachel is a former professional ballerina turned personal trainer. She trained at one of the best ballet schools in the world, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, and then at the young age of 15 went to dance with Miami City Ballet. After retiring from dancing, she wanted a way to stay in shape and not lose her ballerina body, so she got into the fitness world and got certified in personal training, group fitness, pilates, and nutrition from American Sports and Fitness Association. She started off working in gyms in Miami like Crunch and Ironflower Fitness, and then started Speck Fitness shortly after. Speck Fitness started off as a traveling fitness company for years, and is now based inside Ultimate Sports Institute in Weston, FL. Speck Fitness offers a variety of services which include:

Tendu Toning is Speck Fitness’s trademarked workout that Rachel created shortly after becoming a fitness trainer. Ballet dancers aren’t taught to use weights and cross train because of the fear of becoming big and bulky. Rachel learned very quickly after becoming a personal trainer that that wasn’t the case at all, and in fact she actually became stronger and leaner. She wanted to share this with dancers to help them get stronger, but also for the non dancer to achieve a long, lean ballerina type body. She fused all of the positions of ballet with the concept of fitness and created Tendu Toning, which is like no other workout.
