What Our Clients Say:

"Renu has changed my life! I have had 3 knee replacements - One on one knee and two on another. They have not gone well. In fact, I was at a point where my Doctor and physical therapist had pretty much told me this was as good as it was going to get. I couldn’t walk much more than a block without being in bed the next day. I couldn’t do stairs. I had to stop traveling. My entire life was centered on my knees.I am fairly-well known in the Triangle and I guarantee everyone knows about my knees. I had trouble standing, was in awful pain, and had severe balance issues. After 3 months with Dino I was walking, could stand up on my own and felt better than I have felt in 5 years. I’ve continued over the years, Renu is a constant in my life, I couldn’t imagine going without this place. Dino truly is a miracle worker. I am happy to meet with anyone to describe the experience. I am not an advocate for Renu Fitness – I am an evangelist."

- Patty Briguglio

"Two years ago I joined Renu. My severe arthritis and lack of mobility had sidelined me for years. The personally-designed workouts, one-on-one attention, and terrific encouragement have changed my life positively. I’m strong, able to travel, and I now do things I haven’t been able to do in years. In fact I just climbed Machu Picchu, something I thought I would never be able to do. For the first time in ages, I am pain free without medicine. Life is good! "

- Susan .

"I am an orthopaedic surgeon who specialized in spinal disorders. I had my own personal disorder when I developed low back pain with sciatica. An MRI demonstrated a foraminal disc herniation at L4/5. I could get around ok although I could not participate in any active exercise. I was scheduled for surgery but somehow my symptoms diminished to the point that I was able to be more active. I was referred to a Physical Therapist who then referred me to Dino. With his knowledge of post-rehabilitation and the musculoskeletal system, I rapidly resolved all symptoms and have never looked back. I feel great and just enjoyed a week of excellent skiing in Colorado---not bad for a 77-year-old. I continue to refer patients to Dino because of his knowledge and excellent interpersonal skills! "

– Dan Spengler, M.D.

Client experience:

Workout photo of Marcie at Renu Health and Fitness in Raleigh NC

“I tried becoming more active on my own for about six months, building up to 3 mile walks several times a week and longer more challenging hikes on the weekend. I started having joint pain and my sports medicine doctor suggested that I call Dino at Renu. I knew after the first meeting/workout at Renu that this was what I had been missing in exercise - a total body workout with low impact and expert care to avoid injury. Dino has created a supportive environment that allows for challenging and invigorating personal workouts, no matter your fitness level. I look forward to the physical exertion with no concern of injury or boredom! Renu workouts are the highlight of my week!”

"Working with Renu, gym in Raleigh, you get total body conditioning that takes into account your fitness level or past injuries. You quickly understand that a past injury even if not reversible does not need to stop one from improving their health and fitness. What Dino provides is beyond personal training as an exercise physiologist, it is fitness conditioning with intelligence, informed guidance and care! I personally started with a limited ability to walk and with his targeted plan I am now climbing 10 flights of stairs and enjoying traveling again. You know you’re in the right place when you look around and realize how many medical professionals like myself train with Dino, Renu is absolutely unique!"

After the second meniscus repair on my left knee and my right knee with two previous meniscus repairs, I was in a position that I could not take my grandchildren to Disneyland without a wheelchair. My knees were so aggravated, I had very limited range of motion and sleeping was difficult. I became a client of Renu one of the best gyms in Raleigh, NC after a friend told me how much it had helped her. She was not wrong. In that short time, I have improved my mobility, the pain is gone to the point I don’t even think about my knees anymore, gratefully sleep is no longer painful too. I just engage in what I want to do. In fact, I just returned from enjoying 4 days in Orlando chasing my grandkids around with no pain. I’m enjoying life again!

I was undergoing physical therapy because I was having issues with my hip, I was told I would need a hip replacement but wanted to hold off as long as possible. Some colleagues had been working with Dino at Renu and spoke very highly of it.Working at Renu I was able to delay my hip replacement for 7 years, and when I finally had the surgery I was up and walking without a walker or cane 3 days later. My physical therapist couldn’t believe it, they said you came into the first PT session where people end up. I’m back at work full time in three and a half weeks. I’m a walking advertisement for Renu, one of the best gyms in Raleigh, NC, I didn’t need any strong pain pills except my first night to help me sleep. My recovery has gone amazingly well. It is up to Renu I walked in so strong for my surgery. When I went back for my post op checkup my doctor told me I’m in the top 1% of outcomes.If it wasn’t for Renu I would have had surgery years earlier and wouldn’t have had the recovery I did. You must make the time for this because it absolutely changes your life!

Whether you are looking for a "get back in shape" routine or an "up my game" regimen, Dino's workouts are exceptional. While he could tailor a remarkable workout to any age, he focuses on those who are over 40. More, faster, and heavier are not necessarily the answers for joints and bodies that have some wear and tear, or that have been neglected for 10-20 years.Dino starts where you are and tailors the workouts to you. If you have a history of injury or surgery, he considers this in the plan. The workouts vary each day and week. Dino watches form meticulously to prevent injury, and he adjusts the rep mid-cycle to intensify or ease up as needed.I started going to counteract the insidious onset of age-related changes, even though I had been a runner for years. Six-and-a half-years later I can't imagine not doing these workouts 2-3 times per week.Semi-privates have worked well for me because Dino can very capably manage a small group all doing different things-- and the group camaraderie helps!With Dino's help, I keep "upping the game" and feel challenged at each new level of fitness. I started trekking several years ago, and Dino's workouts are exceptional at preparing me for the stability and strength needed for trails with steep, long ascents and descents on uneven terrain.

I am a retired surgeon and have spent most of my recreational time being active and outdoors. I have been in all kinds of gyms & hiking clubs for 40 years. Five years ago, when I was 73, I had  double knee replacement and my aortic valve replaced in the same year. While I didn't stop exercising, these events clearly put a dent in my abilities. In January 2017, I decided to improve my diet, up my exercise efforts and take control of my weight. Luckily, this was about the time I discovered Renu Health and Fitness. I have been at Y's, hospital gyms, and private fitness centers over the past 20-25 years, but Dino Nowak's program at Renu is the best thought-out and most physiologically based fitness program I have found. This unit is very cleverly planned strength training program. The workouts are semi-private, but each visit is varied & addressed to your individual needs. I really feel good about my sense of well being, my strength, and stamina. This is a fitness center that has a special aim to help folks in my age group (and even younger!) adapt to a more functional lifestyle as we get older.
