Throughout her life, physical fitness has been a predominate factor in who Rachel is as a person and how she approaches our world today. Her passion for fitness began in her youth where she filled her after-school hours and weekends pursuing different sports, starting on the ball field. Rachel began playing softball at age seven, was the only girl on her Little League team at nine and made the cut for a 12U fastpitch at ten. After eight years of competitive tournament ball (and four years as a starter on high school varsity) Rachel decided to expand her fitness horizon at college with track & field, cheerleading and, most notably, bodybuilding.
In college Rachel dedicated herself to learning and implementing all she could absorb in the evolution of what is now her bodybuilding “career”. After four years of dedication Rachel competed in her first Figure Bodybuilding competition (June, 2017) where she placed with the top five in both Open and Novice Classes, displacing a number of experienced competitors in those classes. As significant as this achievement was, Rachel now finds herself even more motivated to advance her knowledge in human anatomy, successful building/toning techniques, and the ever-growing universe of female competitive bodybuilding.
With each fitness experience Rachel affirms to herself (and others) what can be achieved through dedication, concentration and a 120% attitude. To her, physical fitness is not simply aesthetics: it is a lifestyle where “the body can achieve what the mind can conceive”. Rachel loves to share her enthusiasm and passion for fitness with others and wants to present what she has learned to others so they may also become fitness achievers.
