A Bit About Me

Making a Positive Impact

My name is Claude Hafez and I have been a personal trainer and have started my fitness journey since 2015 because I found that having a healthy, productive, and motivational lifestyle proves to have great benefits on an individual’s body, mood, and attitude. I became a certified personal trainer and senior fitness specialist through NASM and I'm a Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Weight Loss Specialist, and Performance Enhancement Specialist. Now, I reached my primary goal of becoming a Master Trainer through NASM.


By being the only NASM master trainer in the Tri-Cities, my passion is to guide the world towards a healthier lifestyle. Everybody is unique, with their own strengths and limitations. I am skilled in training everyone; however, I primarily focus on senior training. My method is to build a custom plan based on your health, schedule, and more importantly, fitness goals. I aim to transform your body and influence you to make more mindful decisions when it comes to your health. 

My certifications include:

NASM Senior Fitness Specialist

NASM Master Trainer

NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist

NASM Weight Loss Specialist

NASM Performance Enhancement Specialist 

Precision Nutrition Cert - PN1 

SilverSneakers Certification 

TRX Certification Coach

First Aid & CPR/AED Certified

“Coach Claude is patient, encouraging, very knowledgeable, and clearly cares about her clients. She has a great sense of humor and is a joy to work with. I didn't expect major changes and I'm very happy about the 25 pound weight loss. However I am most happy about what I've learned and the habits I now have which will keep me fit and healthy for a lifetime.”

"As I was nearing age 70, I know I needed to invest in my health to maintain and enjoy my active life style and quality of life.  Exercising on my own I worried about injuries. Fortunately a friend told me about Claude.  She has helped me strengthen my core and improve my balance. I now live a more rigorous and energetic life than I did a year ago, thanks to Claude’s training."

“Claude has been my trainer/instructor since 2017. As my personal trainer and nutritional counselor, Claude has had a major influence with my weight loss of 60 pounds. This journey has not always been easy, but somehow through Claude's guidance and motivation, she has had the ability to help me see what can be accomplished with patience and hard work.”

Mary, lost 60 pounds


"Claude Hafez is not a "one size fits all" trainer! She knows the anatomy of the body and can accommodate to individual needs regardless of age or health status. I've had at least three painful and muscular issues, and through Claude's knowledge and expertise, all have been resolved! Claude is kind, positive, encouraging, and truly cares about her clients' health and well-being. She is by far the best trainer I've ever had!"

Caryl Thomason, with Claude since 2018

She is an integral part of my fitness regime and has helped me improve my flexibility & strength. Claude truly cares for me as a person and is invested in helping me improve me health. Claude is an amazing trainer and I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a health coach."

Dawn Schafer


“When I started Claude's Nutrition program I was very doubtful. With Coach Claude's help and her daily lessons I buried those doubts. I now live an active life. A life full of confidence, energy, and self esteem. The knowledge and commitment of Coach Claude has changed my life. Thank you Coach Claude!!”

"The day I decided to get stronger was the day I met Claude for a training consult.  Those two decisions have changed my life forever! Never have I had “fun” working out before.  With buddy training holding me more accountable,  she encourages with just the right amount to want more!"

Darlene Murphy


"I have been working out with Claude for the last 3 years. I have had rheumatoid arthritis for most of my adult life. She has an excellent understanding of physical deformities and has been very creative designing exercise routines I’m sure Claude would be a very effective trainer with any age group; however, I believe she has an affinity for helping those that are 55+."

Diana Shankle, with Claude since 2019


"I started attending a gym in 2001 when I was 55, and discovered I reallv enjov exercising. I've trained with 4 different personal trainers. In 2018, I injured my back and fractured 3 vertebrae. I also have osteoporosis and scoliosis. I realized I needed a personal trainer who has gone beyond the basic PT certification, by educating herself and endorsed as a NASM Master Trainer. Claude has helped and guided me by increasing my strength and mobility, and creates exercises which are still challenging, and enjoyable, but cognizant of my body's limitations. I highly recommend Claude as a personal trainer."

Peggy Gregory

"Hi, my name is Patsy, I have been active in a sports gym from the time my son was about 4yrs old and he is now in his 40's. This way of keeping fit has helped in my physical as well as mental enthusiasm and encouragement for life was strengthened by my memberships in local gyms. Exercising  with others brings happiness to my heart as well. As COVID hit and gyms closed, my exercising began in my garage, sometimes with Zoom, but most times with YouTube, not quite the same as being with others as before. When the opportunity was offered by a good friend to work out together with a trainer in a private setting, my heart said, 'Woohoo' and started a great workout experience with Claude. She was willing, even in the private setting, to respect my feelings of safety wearing masks during our training sessions. As I have seasoned in my years, I have experienced changes and limits in my abilities in some exercises. Claude listened to those changes and worked with me in my limits and encouraged me to excel where my body would allow. I have felt encouraged by her expertise and feel good about her knowledge of limitations I need to  follow to keep my body active at the seasoned age I am."

"Claude has been my coach since April of 2017. Initially I had bad knees and shoulders, and a terribly rounded back. Otherwise a healthy, slender fit person. My knees and shoulders are no longer a problem and my posture has vastly improved. I believe that because of my improved health, I have been able to become a 3-time cancer survivor, sailing smoothly through my chemo treatments, surprising both my doctors and me. Thank you Claude! My coach and life long friend!"

Ellie Hayes


"A friend I trusted gave me the best gift…she recommended Claude to me as a physical training coach because I was having trouble getting up from a chair. Being a senior citizen, overweight and really out of shape, I was doubtful and frankly, frightened. But Claude is both a highly skilled and a genuinely caring person. Claude has worked with me over these last 3 months to waken my muscles, increase my energy and help me with balance. I am so much stronger now. I can get up from a chair now with no problem and so much more. I am on a wonderful path with Claude that I never imagined I could travel at this stage of my life. Thank you, Claude!!!!"

Claude is a one-of-a-kind trainer and teacher. She pays attention to each student and encourages us into the appropriate position for each movement. With her support, I’m able to do exercises that I’ve never been able to do… and I feel the difference! Her knowledge and expertise in training and nutrition are only part of her strengths. Claude genuinely cares for her students. When you pick up a dumbbell, just get ready for her to say, "A little heavier?" because she supports us in doing as much as we can. She’s as proud as we are when we conquer a move. Keep Moving with Claude is the best physical workout I’ve ever had… and the best that I can imagine.

Common Queries

Comprehensive Answers

Do you charge extra for nutritional guidance?

Yes, there is an extra charge for a nutritional plan that can be found on I’ll break your big goals into small daily practices that add up to massive changes. This is not a diet, it is a plan that clients can follow to change their eating habits and as a result, you’ll progress toward your goals without ever feeling overwhelmed, and build habits that last a lifetime. My science-based coaching method does more than teach you how to eat better. It won’t be just about what you lose, but what you’ll gain: knowledge, control, and the confidence that comes with knowing you are capable of anything.

Do you offer online training?

Yes, this is an option. Training can happen anytime and anywhere, even at the comfort of your own home! It is not necessary to be at the gym to get a great workout in. If you do not like the environment of the gym, we can have online sessions to keep building strength, mobility, flexibility, and balance from your own space.

What types of home fitness equipment do you recommend?

I recommend having a stability ball, elastic bands, dumbbells, stepper, and a Bosu ball to stay active on the days where we do not have a session. The stability and the Bosu ball are for balance, the elastic bands and dumbbells add weight for muscle gain, and the stepper is an excellent way to keep legs strong. A lot of the exercises that we work on at the gym can be doable at the comfort of your own home. As I always say, keep moving.

How are you different from a regular gym trainer?

I believe I am different than other trainers due to my persistent passion and enthusiasm for fitness. I absolutely love being able to help others in their life journey to reach their individual physical, as well as mental health goals because it gives me a purpose in life. My goal is to aid in encouraging and motivating my clients, and be able to grow in my own skills that need to be worked on. As a Master Trainer, I have the ability and knowledge to get my clients where they want to be in their fitness journey, regardless of their health problems in order to help them be active again.
