Rae Lane’s love of fitness began in her childhood. She was an avid equestrian, riding and showing horses from grade through high school. She played softball, swam on a swim team and water skied for many years. She fell in love with the gym and gym manager, Doug in 1996. The two married in 1997 and bought the club the very next year. Now aptly named CLUB 14 FITNESS as it is currently located on 14th Street, the club thrives under Rae’s management.
Having never run a health club, she credits good instincts, people skills and her inherited sales abilities (from her dad). Throughout the years, Rae has been a certified personal trainer with a full book of clients, aqua aerobics instructor and now, her very favorite, LES MILLS™ group fitness instructor. Teaching classes gives her the ability to touch more people than 1-on-1 training and keeps her in shape as she has a tendency to work too much. The fitness industry is a constantly evolving one and Rae’s goal is to keep the club at the forefront in Nassau County. Her #1 job is making people happy. She says, “We want our members to look forward to their workouts here. We want to be the best part of their day… everyday.”
