Fitness Trainer, Founder
Confidence and self-love do not come from a number on the scale or the size listed on your clothes. Trust me; I know from experience. When I trained and dieted for a figure competition in 2014, I was at my “smallest” and “fittest” but I did not see in the mirror the extremely lean person everyone else saw. I was emotional, hangry (a combination of hungry and angry) and consumed with worry I was going to gain weight or get fat.
Over the years, I’ve made a conscious effort to focus more on what my body can DO instead of how it LOOKS. I value my athleticism, ability to lift heavy weights and master complicated movements. I am proud of who I am, what I can accomplish and the energy I radiate into the universe. I no longer obsess over my macronutrient ratios and definition (or lack thereof) in my abs. I’m a fitness professional, and while I know I look the part, that’s not my main concern because I know my gifts and skills lie beyond my aesthetics.
As a coach of functional movement and proponent of whole, nourishing food, my mission is to help people unlock their fitness potential, which builds self-confidence and translates into every aspect of daily life from career to relationships. I recognize that many clients may have a goal of losing weight, and that will happen, but I want our focus to be on building a strong, functional and healthy body.
Some fitness folks will make compelling claims like “5 minutes to flat abs” or “drop 10 pounds in 10 minutes per day.” I’m much more interested in giving clients personalized, challenging workouts and teaching perfect form and technique for a sustainable lifestyle. Physical changes will happen, but even more importantly, mental and emotional shifts will improve the way you see yourself and your abilities.

My background is in broadcast communications and journalism. I worked in local TV news for a decade, primarily as a reporter. I'm a natural motivator who’ll push clients to accomplish more than they thought possible.
I've been training with Rachel for almost a year. I lost 20 lbs within 6 months. I would've never been able to achieve this without her motivation! She is always pushing me to greatest potential and I really enjoy her workouts. Rachel is reliable and encouraging. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to lose weight, gain muscle, get in shape.
Rachel is AMAZING. After working with her for several months, I think of her as both an amazing trainer, motivator and friend. She has kept me motivated and held me accountable for both workouts, diet, and healthy lifestyle. I have lost a good amount of weight and inches due to working with this amazing lady! Thank you Rachel for being the best of the best!
I've been working out with Rachel for the past 6 months and I have really enjoyed my training so far. Rachel has been very helpful by tweaking and personalizing my workouts based on my goals, events I'm training for, and personal imbalances. The workouts are usually tough but she has a great way of being motivating without making you feel like you're working out with a Drill Sergeant. She's also friendly and easy to talk to so the hour flies right by!
