Exploring Life & Business with Rach & Matt O’Leary of O Fitness

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rach & Matt O’Leary.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
We are a British couple, we met in London 12 years ago (we just celebrated our ten years wedding anniversary!) and we have been living in LA for five years now.

We are both actors which is why we made the move to LA, so health and fitness have always been super important to us and during both of our careers, we’ve had to change physically for different roles.

With our joint passion for fitness and our desire to have our own company doing something we love, we decided to study hard and we achieved our Personal Trainer qualifications 11 years ago and have LOVED helping people reach their goals ever since!

We are also both Black Belt martial artists so it’s safe to say we’re an interesting pair!

Making the move to LA, moving away from everything and everyone we know was a really big decision for us but we are a great team and go into everything we do with a super positive mindset…we make the best of every situation. And our friends and families can see we’re living our best lives, helping people live their best lives…so they are so happy for us!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
We can honestly say that we’ve had a wonderful journey and for that, we feel beyond grateful! Of course, moving countries, starting again, wondering if our lives would be a success, etc… was a lot for the mind to process, but we were very good at trusting the process and knowing that as long as we worked hard, stayed true to ourselves and took the time to enjoy the ride…we’d be just fine!

As you know, we’re big fans of O Fitness. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
We are mobile personal trainers, meaning we come to you with all the equipment and a whole lot of fun! We always offer a free consultation, this can be in person or via zoom, whatever makes the client feel most comfortable. There’s no time limit to the consultation. This is where we get to know YOU! Where you’re at, what you want to achieve and everything else that makes you YOU!

I think that what sets us apart is the fact that we want our clients to be their fittest, healthiest selves in mind, body and soul. We don’t believe in quick fixes, there is not a magic pill you can take or two weeks program you can do that doesn’t damage you and leave you feeling deflated and unmotivated at the end.

We love to build relationships with our clients, set them up with knowledge to achieve their small, medium and big goals in a safe and healthy environment.

We are in the process of starting a YouTube channel which we are super excited about. Fitness is for everyone so we’re thrilled to be able to bring our energy and methods to people who perhaps don’t have the means to get a personal trainer or a gym membership.

We’re also a multi-lingual couple (six languages between us) so we really want to take our message worldwide!

What do you like and dislike about the city?
Pasadena is SO beautiful! Being from Europe, we do miss the historical architecture but we’re very lucky to have plenty of that in Pasadena. Also, it’s super walkable with loads of awesome wine bars, beer gardens, restaurants and it even has a British pub! The thing we like least is also something we actually love…the very noisy Parrots of Pasadena!! They are SO loud but SO cute so it’s hard to be mad at them when they wake you up!
