As a youth, Rachel played field hockey, softball, and basketball. Yet she still lived a very unhealthy lifestyle before CrossFit. “I had an unhealthy vision of what being ‘fit’ should look like. CrossFit helped me to realize what my body is capable of, which is much more important than how it looks. I began to break through barriers that had been holding me back. ‘I can’t’ quickly became ‘I can and I will.’
Through my journey as an athlete, I discovered that helping myself be better wasn’t enough. I needed to share my knowledge with others and help them see their potential. I believe everyone can be great. But they need to have their own goals and move at their own pace. My mission is to help people reach and maintain their own version of optimal health.
