Meet Rita

Rita Cornelius, personal trainer for the Albemarle Family YMCA

I began my athletic career as a gymnast at the age of ten. As I grew older, I was encouraged to continue to stay physically active as a ballet student, swimmer, karate enthusiast, runner, and fitness “boot camp” regular. Along the way, I experienced the benefits of daily exercise and learned that healthy eating habits are key to an active lifestyle. Recently, I earned my Associates degree in health and fitness science at the College of the Albemarle. As I continue to work with the wonderful people at the Albemarle family YMCA, I plan to further my studies in fitness and nutrition and to share that knowledge and experience with my clients.
