What Makes Booty Lab Different?

Hey, girl! My name is Rebecca. Fitness enthusiast, personal trainer, dog mom, and founder of Booty Lab. 

We take the best of personal training and fitness classes to give you effective and fun strength training workouts. We believe strength is beautiful and balance is the key to a healthy lifestyle!

Showing Women that Strength is Beautiful and Lifting Isn’t Only for Men

Semi-Private Groups

Our semi-private groups are limited to 6 people. We know working out is more fun when you get to know the people you’re with. You’ll get booty-kicking workouts plus a few new friends to hold you accountable.

Personalized Attention

We want you to get the most out of every workout, which is why we keep our classes small. Our trainers will know you and your goals and can give you personalized attention during your workouts. Want to know your progress? We also give you a personalized app to track photos, measurements, and of course Strength goals.


Effective Workouts

Strength training is an important aspect of your overall fitness. Not only will you build lean muscles and sculpt those glutes during the workouts but you’ll burn more calories during the day – even when you’re resting.

Our Team

Rebecca McAbee

Owner and Trainer
NSCA-CPT, FMS level 1


Fitness has always been a pivotal part of my life. As a young girl, cheerleading brought me a sense of athleticism and competitiveness that carried me to where I am today.

I began working as a special needs teacher, fulfilling my passion for helping others and instructing. However, when I met my husband Chris several years later, I discovered another passion; the health and training field. Training became a way to fuse fitness and teaching into my daily life.

Today, I am the proud owner of Booty Lab. My mission is to help women meet their health and fitness goals in a challenging, exciting, comfortable environment.

The most enjoyable and rewarding aspect of being a trainer is seeing your clients achieve their goals and be successful. Every day I get to witness individuals do more and be more than they ever dreamed of. My clients have coined me as the “glute queen,” since this is a focus of every session. I primarily work with females to help them achieve an athletic, yet feminine physique, and more importantly find confidence in themselves as beautiful, strong women.

I recently graduated from UNCW with a Bachelor’s in Lifetime Fitness and Health. To know me is to know I love being outside. I’m always playing games with my friends or sitting around reading and learning about the things I care about most. 

My passion, however, is to help people feel their best while living their best life. My life has always consisted of playing sports and going to the gym with friends. During my first year of college, I struggled with weight gain, even though I was still going to the gym regularly. I realized my diet and the way I trained had a significant effect on my body. I was intrigued by how the body worked, which led me to dig deeper into the subject through school.  This passion lead me to my joy in helping others realize that they, too, can take control of their lives and find a healthy balance. I hope to help others find the same enjoyment that I have discovered through health and exercise, not only physically but mentally.

NASM- CPT, USAW- Level 1, PN- Level 1

 Since growing up in a very active household, health and fitness have always been something that I valued from a young age. Both my athletic endeavors and strong interest in science throughout my childhood and high school played a major role in my choice to pursue a degree in exercise science at Towson University. However, it wasn’t until my junior year of college that I discovered my passion for strength training. I fell in love with the process of setting goals, achieving them, and learning so much about myself and the human body in the process. I became a trainer because I wanted to help others to learn and achieve their goals as I did and to have fun while doing so!

I’ve spent the better part of the last 5 years in various gym environments with clients of all ages,backgrounds, and ability levels, both as a trainer and an athlete. You could say that the gym is one of my most favorite places. Although much of my time is spent inside of a gym, as much of my time as possible is also spent outside. If you can’t find me in the gym, you can find me in one of my two of my other favorite outdoor spaces; the beach or a music festival!
