Caleb Hahne

Hello, my name is Caleb. I am a certified personal trainer through the NSCA. I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Exercise Science along with a minor in nutrition at Wayne St. College. I played one year of college football at Morningside College, then went on and played 2 years of semi-professional football with the Nebraska Lawndawgs out of Norfolk, NE. I love playing almost any sport!

I enjoy training a wide variety of people and will make programs, specifically designed for your goals. Whether it's to lose weight, become more athletic, or to just do daily activities, I will be able to help you! With my sports background, I enjoy working with athletes to make them the best they can be.

My passion is helping people no matter what goals they might have. I look forward to helping you meet your goals and live a healthy lifestyle

I have been a member of the YMCA for many years and fell in love with living a fit life. I began as an inactive mother of 4 children then decided to start running as a challenge to myself. What started as a goal to run my first 5k ended up as a goal to run a marathon within a year. Since that first marathon, I have run three more full marathons and other shorter races along the way.

Meeting my own personal goals and watching others inspired me to become a fitness instructor at the YMCA. For the past 3 years, I have taught cycling, FIT, HIIT, Insanity, and more. I have multiple fitness certifications. I love challenging my classes to push harder every day - helping them to see we are all stronger than we realize! I believe that everyone can meet their fitness goals with lots of encouragement and accountability.

I am now thrilled to begin my Personal Training journey. Training for your fitness goals can be fun and challenging. Whether you are new to fitness or more experienced, I believe in options for every fitness level. From the young athlete to the active older adult, let's work together for a fitter, healthier you!

Rachel Propp

Hi, my name is Rachel. I am a certified personal trainer through NCSF. I have 20 years experience as a Physical Therapy Assistant and 10 plus years experience in the fitness industry teaching fitness classes here at the YMCA. I also just recently graduated from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition as a Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Certified Hormone Coach.

I love working with all walks of life. My training approach is bio-individual to each individual's needs and goals. I recognize that no two clients are the same and understand the importance of establishing a strong rapport and trust with my client. With compassion and motivation for fitness and health, I like to encourage and challenge my clients to reach their full potential while making the process enjoyable and rewarding.

Whether you are wanting to lose weight, build muscle, improve flexibility, or enhance athletic performance, I am here to hold you accountable and to design a customized workout program that incorporates a variety of training methods, including strength training, cardiovascular exercises, functional training, and flexibility exercises. I am here to help you reach your goals however big or small they might be. I look forward to working with you.

Trainerize is a coaching app utilized by the Hastings Family YMCA's Personal Trainers. With fitness, nutrition, and habit-coaching features, plus in-app messaging, progress tracking, and more — it's everything you need to be motivated and inspired!

Trainerize will be used for online personal training but can also be added on to your in-person personal training plan. Ask your Personal Trainer about adding this feature.

  1. Goal Achievement
    A personal trainer helps you define your fitness goals. She/he takes into account your current fitness level and discusses what you want to achieve through your workouts.
  2. Personalized Workout
    Personal trainers create a specific workout plan just for you based on what you want to achieve. The personalized plan typically gives you better results than a general workout plan.
  3. Instruction
    A personal trainer teaches you the proper way to perform each exercise movement in your routine. She/he often demonstrates the movement and watches you perform it so she/he can correct any issues with your posture or technique. This instruction helps eliminate gym injuries which often occur due to completing exercises with improper form.
  4. Motivation
    Motivation is often difficult to maintain when you exercise on your own. Regular sessions with a personal trainer enhance your motivation to continue with a workout regimen.
  5. Accountability
    Another common problem is lack of commitment to a regular exercise program. When you exercise on your own, it is easier to skip a session here and there or fall off the wagon completely since there's no one to hold you accountable for your actions.
  6. Variety
    An experienced trainer teaches you a variety of exercise methods, which can keep you from getting bored. Also, if a specific exercise does not work for you, the trainer can change it to one that suits you better and provides the same physical benefits.
  7. Efficiency
    A professional personal trainer is able to make the most of your workout time, which increases the efficiency of your exercise program. This is especially beneficial when you have a limited amount of time to exercise.
