Meet Renee Schnuerle
My name is Renee Schnuerle and I am a wife to an amazing, hard-working husband and father who has always been my best friend. We live in a rural Midwest community and have 3 amazing children who are the most important components of our lives.
Cash, our son is a spitting image of his father. Ornery, energetic, caring, and would rather work (aka play) than sleep. After 15 short months following Cash was born I gave birth to a daughter named Harper who is certainly a Daddy’s little girl. She is a rare gem as she was the first girl born on my husband’s side of the family in 55 years and the first girl cousin on my side. She is sassy, sweet, and loves her bigger brother even though he is tough on her sometimes.
The picture of my family to the right is why I wake up everyday with a positive outlook and determination to make life better. They are my WHY for doing what I do and the reason Joe, my husband and I work as hard as we do. We want to give them the best life possible. One that is full of opportunity, optimism, love, and a sense of security.
My goal is to also raise them in a home focused on the importance of making healthy choices, fitness, prevention and wellness for a better quality of life.

Renee Schnuerle's Journey
Prior to becoming a wife and a parent, I was an athlete in high school and college, employee wellness coordinator, Exercise Science graduate student, and physical education major. Fitness has always been a passion of mine but after I got pregnant that ended in a miscarriage, I shoved all that to the side and blamed our loss on fitness. I should have just stopped or what did I do that day to have made this happen to us?
When I got pregnant again, I gave myself the green light to stop working out and to eat whatever I wanted for fear of another loss. I gained 60 pounds with my son and was 240lbs when I gave birth. Now for someone who was used to weighing about 150lbs and wearing a size 8/10 that was hard to take and I had lost who I was. Knowing that it wouldn’t’ be long until we tried to have another child, I really didn’t attempt to lose much weight but got back down to about 195 lbs before getting pregnant again. This time, I gained 55+ and topped my previous weight. I had also completely LOST who I was and what I once stood for. I was miserable. I hated looking at myself in the mirror. I didn’t want to play with my kids. I didn’t want to talk to anyone about fitness or nutrition cause I was NOT living the lifestyle I told everyone else they needed to live and therefore I felt like a hypocrite and I was!
I knew something needed to change and if I wanted it to happen, I NEEDED to change. I lost the weight over the course of about 6 months and felt the best I had ever felt. I got certified to teach INSANITY and PiYO - which are simply just more tools to help more people!
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I could do this stuff again! Just goes to show you that no matter where you are, you don’t have to stay there if you don’t want to.
I'm currently working on myself again after another 45lbs weight gain with our 3rd child. I have all the tools to be succesfuls and can help you achieve your goals too!
