Samantha - The Aussie


has been professionally involved in the fitness industry for 15 years. Australian born,
she now resides in the USA where she earned certifications through the International
Sports Science Association and National Exercise Trainers Association.  Sam enjoys the
challenges of keeping up with the latest training techniques and sharing them with others.
Her philosophy is the right kind of workouts will have people seeing results and coming
back for more. Her special interest lies in understanding nutritional physiology as it relates
to what we are eating and how we are feeling and performing. Sam’s goal is to help
others incorporate exercise & nutritional balance into their lifestyle so they feel, function
and perform optimally. Recently she decided to share her passion and desire to help as
many people as possible. As a result and along with her fiance' and business partner
Stephen, they opened up the “Down Under Sports and Fitness” facility located within the
VF Outlets where they promote a realistic and enthusiastic approach to fitness and
nutrition.  As a personal trainer, Sam believes a fitness professional’s responsibility is to
educate people and help them understand why they are having success or not when it
comes to exercise and nutrition. Their wellness can very much depend on it


RACHEL - THE MAINER
Rachel Sprague grew up in a small lobster-fishing town in Maine where her family mostly lived
off from their own land growing fruits and vegetables. Living a healthy lifestyle has always been
a component in her life and developed her passion to help individuals to also live a healthy
lifestyle.

From a very young age sports and athletics were a part of her life. She played soccer,

basketball, softball, and tennis.  Soccer was always the sport she was most passionate about.  
Rachel played on travel teams all year long and on the Maine Olympic Development team and
went on to play 4 years at the collegiate level. Athletics taught her discipline, sportsmanship,
time management, and teamwork, among many other things.

When it came to picking a major in college, Rachel always knew that it would be in the health field; therefore, she landed on Exercise Science at Wesley College in Dover, DE. After college, she has furthered her education by achieving her Personal Training Certification from the American College of Sports Medicine to help others achieve their goals and to become healthy and physically fit.
