I signed up for 1 month only because I wanted to try and see if I like it or not. 9 months later here I am writing with honesty that I truly love, enjoy working out at RAF, the instructors are just amazing but more AMAZING is the feeling after each class, shredded, boot camp, the perfect 10 and RAF strong are some of the classes that I enjoy doing it. I would recommend RAF to anyone who is looking to workout in a judge free zone, you might find yourself confuse because ALL the people that workout are super nice, supportive and friendly. You might wonder if they are real, and YES they are! More...
She is the best in Hartford. Variety in her classes make it super fun.
I have been working out with RAQ for years! Raquel’s in not just a gym, it’s a family!
Great class with lots of energy

I had a great workout Sunday morning at RAF. The class along with the instructor (Raquel) was very high energy, extremely supportive and encouraging as well as fun and challenging. The training circuit we did pretty much targeted the whole body so by the end Of the session I felt like I had died and came back to life all over again. I had a great time and definitely plan to return for a second round. I hear the leg day is the best! More...
RAF classes are fun, high intensity, and energetic. The trainers push you to do your best always and foster a friendly non competitive atmosphere. Racquel's outdoor bootcamp classes are an absolute must!! More...
Great vibes good work out good music and lots of motivation by others. Highly recommend her classes.
Racquel is AMAZING! Even though I am always in the back of the class and don't really say anything. She knows my name and comments on the progress I have made with my weight and fitness level. I owe my over 20lb (and counting!) weight loss to her. I never thought I would go to Bootcamp or exercise classes faithfully for over 6 months, yet here I am. Try it! You will not be disappointed.

Love the environment, people there.... Workouts are always on FIRE..... If u wanna see results this is definitely the place.... Racquel Lunser is amazing along with Betsy and Nazly ♡♡♡♡ More...
I absolutely love this gym�Awesome energy all around�
The amount of love & support that you receive from Racquel and her team is Amazing. They take the time to listen to your needs and help you every step of the way so you never feel like you are on your own. My body & mind has gotten stronger since I walked through her doors. I LOVE RAF.. it has become my second home & fitness family. �� More...
I am tired just watching people work out
I have been part of RAF for about 7 months now and I'm addicted. The energy and support I received from everyone since day 1 is unconditional. Lots of times you join a gym and is so boaring then one stop going because of the same routine. When I join RAF thanks to my wife Pamela I felt like it was family and part of a community that only goal is for everyone to feel better about themselves. Special Thank you to Raquel, the rest of the trainers and staff. You are the best... More...
Where can I start?! The heartfelt guidance provided by all the trainers can make it nothing less than the best. I've tried other workout programs but nothing compares. This is not a gym, it's a second home. The trainers together with the push all members give each other make every effort a success. There is no room for quitting when your in a room full of RAF addicts!! Just the push I needed for my lifestyle change. When you can say you went from being a couch potato to an addict...you know it's real. I absolutely LOVE Racquel's Addiction Fitness. Never a disappointment! More...
I tried Racquel's for the first time as part of a Yelp fitness event for the Saturday boot camp class. Sign up and payment are super easy online through their website. I enjoyed the class very much and decided to try a one month membership. I've seen attended the Saturday Boot Camp, Monday Shredded, and Wednesday Butts and Gutts. They offer a few classes each day (early morning class on weekdays, two evening classes, and a few morning weekend classes). They have a large loft space that can fit a ton of people (no worries about not getting into a class because it's full). There's a variety of different people--ages, genders, fitness levels and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. Easy parking in the large lot across the street. They have a variety of membership offerings and group ons right now if you want to give a try. Come spring and summer, they offer workout classes in the park which is pretty cool.Would recommend for anyone looking to try a new fitness regimen! More...
Where do I begin? I've been into fitness for about 6 years but decided to get focused after having my third child. RAF is my second home. I love my fitness family. The trainers and Racquel are amazing. I feel strong, supported and empowered by all members! Everyone motivates each other which I love! Every class is innovative and challenging. I can't think of going anywhere else. More...
Racquels Addiction Fitness is a place where you are surronded by strong, inspiring, motivating, and kind hearted group of people. Racquel and her team are all amazing!! Their classes are never the same and they all give you a great workout. More...
I attended several drop in classes with my sister ( who has been a member for years now). The group classes are definitely a great work out !!! The instructors are energetic and very knowledgeable. During class the instructors make a point to get around the room and help anyone who needs it. The atmosphere is fun and friendly. I definitely recommend Racquel's Addiction Fitness !!! More...
Great classes, great energy, and intense work outs....
I absolutely love this place! I've taken group fitness classes but nothing has compared to The Loft. It's addicting!
I believe it's a 5 star fitness program... The reputation and the results are amazing. The stories and transformatioms I have seen are unbelievers.
I love this place. Its like a 2nd family the minute you walk in. I recently joined and I'm already feeling stronger. With Racquel support, motivation and killer workouts no wonder this place is so addicting. I guarantee if you just give it one try you'll be hooked. One thing I've learned here is.... More...
~Before RAF, who would have thought we'd be doing all the things we are doing today in the health and fitness part of our lives, which by the way add more years to our lives and the added bonus and always God willing, aging gracefully~ Just look around, many of us have been introduced to races by our trainers, more than 30 of us are doing a marathon relay in a week, some of us are racing on Sunday, some are doing all sorts of other races and sports activities. The cost of the membership is nothing compared to what we've gained, this lifestyle is priceless! Ok, now I can say I did 5.21 miles today for practice in about 55/56 minutes bcz I turned on my watch too soon~ � We're so addicted and dedicated, we do extra just to practice~ Thanks to a friend Brenda for introducing me to RAF~ Thanks to all our trainers for believing in us and pushing us to the point you know we can~ None of us would be doing any of this without you~ Forgot the calories! 706 burned! � More...
Great workout facility everyone is so encouraging and welcoming.
I first started attending classes as part of a Groupon. The groupon was a fantastic deal at $39 for 10 classes. The variety of classes and timing is great. My favorite classes are the Monday day Shred and the weekend bootcamp classes. Raquel is a great instructor and I have also been taking personal training sessions with Raquel for the past year. Over the year, she has helped me reach my fitness goals and become more like a friend than an a trainer. When I pulled a back muscle during class, she texted me that evening to see how I was doing! I really like the family feeling of this studio. All the instructors and clients are so friendly and take the time to chat with students. I am leaving CT soon and Raquel and her studio are one of the things I will miss the most! More...
My crazy friend and I are always on the lookout for a workout deal so when we saw a class pass for Raquel's on Groupon we decided to check it out. I checked out Raquel's website and read her bio. I found it cool that she's a mom of a young child b/c as a new mom I've been working on finding time to fit fitness into my hectic schedule. We signed up for the 5:30 am class through the Mindbody app. I've used Mindbody in the past and it makes sign up, cancelling (if necessary), and receiving reminders very easy so I'm glad Raquel uses it. There's a parking lot in front of the building which is always nice. When we arrived there were a few others going to the class also arriving and they were kind enough to hold the door for us. Raquel was running a few minutes late but the front desk girl and a few of the regulars already knew to start warming up and they lead us in doing so. When Raquel arrived we got right into it. She was just the right mixture of encouraging and firm to keep us motivated throughout the hour long class. We did a variety of different exercises, went for runs around the studio, etc so there was no getting bored. When we felt like giving up there was someone else in the class shouting way to go or you can do this which was really awesome. The studio is well equipped and there are several before and after pictures from clients displayed which is very encouraging. Ive been to a couple of Raquel's classes by now and I've enjoyed them all. There are men and women of different ages and fitness levels in the classes and everyone sweats! I would definitely recommend Raquel's. More...
Racquel has given me a new meaning of healthy eating, addicted to wrkn out and staying consistent! Love my Loft family! #teamhealthy
To be honest, this is a difficult journey for me but the women that attend these classes are inspiring, motivating and it feels like it's a team effort. Women that do not know me were cheering me on saying, You can do this!" I am so grateful for their support. Meanwhile, Raquel and her team are running the classes and making sure they are working everyone in the class. If it's too hard for me, I modify and they let me know that I am ok where I am. It's a slow process for me but I am grateful to Raquel, her team and the women that attend these classes. You are all very inspirational and amazing! Thank you all! More...
I love all the classes. Positive and encouraging environment!
Great workout every time. Supportive coaches and fun classes
Love love this class! I have never been "addicted" to working out until I started here. You feel like part of a family that is super supportive! Workouts are amazing and push you hard. Best part of my day! More...
Love this place! Great people and amazing trainers!! I look forward to going to the classes and bootcamp!!
The results I've gotten from Racquel's classes are amazing. Her and her staff are always motivating, encouraging, and inspiring. I love these classes and would recommend them to anyone! More...
Love Love everything about RAF'S the trainers/instructors know just how to push you and build you up at the same time. The people I've met at bootcamp are amazing! We don't all know each others names but that doesn't stop people from encouraging eachother and pushing eachother along. ♡♡♡ From a newbie :) More...
