Christa Bache

I’ve been working with clients in New York City since 1998, first in gyms and then with my private clientele in their homes. Over the years, I've chosen to specialize in working with clients who are 60 years of age or older. I’m certified by NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) as a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Senior Fitness Specialist. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Dance as well as a Master’s degree in Applied Physiology from Columbia University. My love and respect of both movement and science is reflected in every one of my sessions.

There is nothing I'm more passionate about than figuring out how to take my clients to higher levels of strength, endurance and flexibility while taking into account the orthopedic issues, medical conditions and balance challenges they're facing. Working in partnership with my clients towards specific functional goals in the most safe and effective way is what drives our sessions. As a result, our working relationship and my client’s growth seldom ends when the day’s exercise does.

Private Training Sessions Sessions can occur at the client's home or the gym in their building.

Sessions can be purchased in packages of 10 or 20.

Private Session Retainer Client

  • “Here are some phrases that describe Christa as a trainer:
    Form-tastic: Always checks my form, proper alignment feels so much better. Pro-Me: Supportive and attentive, so much so that I wrote my therapist’s name on Christa’s check today! Professional: Her brain is her best asset. Programs are tailored for me. Thoughtful: Understands and plans for my needs, desires and fears. Fun: Workouts change and they are interesting.  She is engaged throughout the session, much to my regret when I’m feeling lazy! Pushes you but not pushy: She respects the individuality of her clients. She gets me. I couldn’t ask for more than that. Spunky not punky: Haha, it is true. Fierce but not feisty too. Inspiring: Our workouts foster my physical & intellectual growth.  I am stronger and & confident, inside & outside.”

  • Working with Christa has led to major changes in the way I approach my health and fitness. Her Online Training program is truly cutting edge with regards to personal training, with apps to track my workouts, a weekly progress report, videos to teach me new moves, and frequent Skype sessions for questions. I always feel connected to Christa, like there’s someone looking over my shoulder guiding me whenever I exercise, even though we see each other in person somewhat infrequently. The program is in no way one-size-fits-all; she’s been so responsive to my goals and has enabled me to achieve them with targeted workouts and nutrition goals. She’s also my biggest advocate, motivating me and reminding me of successes on weeks when I’ve been down on myself. Online Training with Christa has made exercise something I look forward to, and her online program has made it easy to stay on top of my workouts and goals. I can’t recommend her more highly.

  • “Christa has been taking care of my body for 10 years. During that time I’ve learned so much about how my body works. I’ve never been bored and I always felt our workouts were extremely safe and effective. I workout with Christa because I plan on working out my whole life. She’s the only trainer I know that cares as much about my abs as my joints.

  • I absolutely love this woman!
    I’ve known Christa for 13 years and working with her is – always – an expansive experience.
    She is a fantastic personal trainer: however, you must know that the word ‘personal trainer’ or a paragraph does really no justice to all that she is and offers. Christa is one the most inspiring people I know. She serves from integrity and each session is a learning experience. She meticulously and brilliantly thinks out, plans, and feels sequences and adjusts on the spot to what is needed in the moment. She remembers yesterday’s sessions and details. Her wisdom, care, and observation lead, direct, keep you focused, and safe. She reads with astounding precision any possible disconnect from your body and mind. This serves to awaken you and teach you more about your body and mind. She challenges in ways that are sensitive and connected and has particular and impressive ways of refining your actions, as well as, paying attention to what seems like all. She encourages in powerful and loving ways. She is astute and uses her intuition wisely. She is professional and reliable beyond what you can imagine and on top of it she immense fun and joy to be around. Christa’s skill and knowledge are truly unequivocal and rich. She is a person of depth and substance, and her humanness is a precious gift. She is a significant part and powerful catalyst in me reclaiming my body’s stability, strength, and freedom. She teaches me invaluable ways to learn to trust my body and to know that the changes I envision are possible. I dare you to transform, connect, and expand and step into your strength in ways you have yet to discover.

  • “Working out with Christa has quite simply changed my life. Before I met her, two years ago, I hated going to the gym. I had very little confidence in myself or my abilities. Exercise was “too much effort” for me and I didn’t enjoy it at all. Since I have been training with Christa over the last couple of years I have noticed a significant difference in my body. I feel stronger, more confident, and fit into my clothes better! Christa helps me understand how important it is to listen to my body and find the right movement for me. Her knowledge of anatomy and physiology astound me and I admire her passion tremendously. It is because of her that I now enjoy working out and consider it a necessary part of my self care routine. I look forward to every session I have with her!”
