Claudia Faucher

I love any outdoor activity, writing, and yes, a bottle of good wine. My other passions include learning something new each day, cooking Italian dishes, and meeting interesting people.



Certified Les Mills BodyPump instructor for the past 7 years, and a fitness instructor and personal trainer for most of my adult life. I want to use my skills and experiences to help and motivate others on their fitness journeys.

I am a New Jersey native who became interested in fitness while pursuing a master’s degree in journalism several years ago.

I have been a YMCA member for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until using some of the on-campus jogging trails that I realized I love … really loved exercise.

Running would then lead to weight training and any other fitness activity that presented itself.

I eventually chose to combine my passions for journalism and exercise, which I have been doing for over 30 years!


Fitness has been a big part of my life. From recreational activities during my youth to high school sports, and then to being a Division 1 athlete, physical activity has always been a big part of who I am.

Now that I’m at a different stage of life, I still love being active. But, my range of interests has expanded to include fitness (always), writing (thank you for being here), and cooking.

I started FitFab50 as a way to stay connected to fitness and lifestyle, as well as share thoughts and views on health and well-being.

On the topic of cooking – In the past few years, I really developed I had a passion for cooking. I have always loved preparing food for my family and guests. So much so, that I have started a new site dedicated solely to cooking.

Outer Banks Recipes is my first recipe site based on seafood dishes popular in this North Carolina region. Please stop by and let me know what you think!
