Reyna Texler, the Creator of Paddle Pump!, was the girl who swore she’d never step foot in a gym. Now, she’s a kayak guide, an ACA Level 2 Kayak Instructor, and certified personal trainer for Hudson River Expeditions in Cold Spring, NY, who creatively found a way to combine her love of fitness and kayaking throughout the Hudson Highlands for people of all fitness and paddling levels to enjoy.
In her free time, she enjoys vacationing with her husband as they explore the world from the perspective of the double bladed paddle. When she’s not paddling, powerlifting, teaching first graders, or playing with her two Pugs, you can find Reyna dancing in the kitchen whipping up new healthy dishes.
As a member of the #Grrlsquad, Reyna hopes to inspire all women to find strength in their individualities, and motivate others to define their own version of what a healthy lifestyle means for them. She truly believes that all women are strong women, and do not have to be a certain shape, or size in order to “be happy, be healthy, and most importantly, be-YOU-tiful!”
