Renee Shaidle
Head Coach at Orange Theory Fitness

My name is Renee Shaidle and I presently the Head Coach at Orangetheory Fitness in Cambridge.  I have the best job in the world.  I help people change their lives through fitness.  My job is really about helping people reach their true potential within themselves.  Pushing past an uncomfortable place to be better than they were yesterday. We meet our members where they are and take them to where they want to be. Along the way we have built an amazing community of like minded people who also support and encourage the best in each other. 

My core values are positivity, persereverance and responsibility.  Orangetheory fitness totally empowers all of these in my life.

My fitness training and coaching started over 35 years ago.  I studied Kinesiology and became a Massage therapist at the same time.  My passion for coaching has been both a full time gig and a side hustle.  About 15 years ago I cured myself of a skin disease and began to pursue healing foods.  I became a Raw Food, Healing Food Expert and later a Certified Chef.  This passion has only grown for me as I have also became a Nutrition Coach.  It is my passion and purpose to help people feel better about themselves.  I use food and fitness as my tools of choice. 


At home I am a wife and a mother of 2 amazing kids, our daughter who is 10 and our son who is 17.  In my spare time, and this is totally true, you can find me either hiking in the trails or experiementing in the kitchen.  It is just what I love to do, even in my spare time.  My husband and I have been married 18 years and our favorite date night is an OTF workout and good movie with a fire.
