Rachel’s passion for fitness started early thanks to her family’s active lifestyle. A track and cross country athlete in high school, she was always drawn to team sports that encouraged competition and fostered a community. Once she began college, she missed the team atmosphere of sports. She saw one of her best friends starting CrossFit and asked her to take her to a class. From there, it was history. Rachel fell in love with the functional component of CrossFit and had found a safe place to push her athletic limits and grow. CrossFit showed Rachel that strong is beautiful and that women are powerful. After five years of CrossFit, Rachel decided to get her Level 1 certification and began to intern and coach under the guidance of excellent leadership.
Helping others reach their strength goals and inspiring people to do their best have always been a passion of Rachel’s. After graduating from Penn State with a degree in Public Relations, Rachel made the decision to go back to school to pursue her Bachelor’s in Exercise and Health Sciences from UMass Boston. Since having graduated in 2018, she is currently getting her Master’s in Rehabilitation Sciences at Lasell University. Rachel works full-time in the field of corrective exercise and pain management. She uses static and dynamic athlete evaluations to design programs to help clients alleviate chronic pain, improve muscle function and skeletal alignment, and hit PR’s.
Outside of the gym, Rachel loves spending time with friends and family. A huge lover of dogs, she volunteers at the MSPCA as a dog walker (her apartment won’t allow dogs – yet!). She loves traveling, going to concerts, and all things Schitt’s Creek.
