ABOUT

My fitness journey began in high school. Since then I’ve explored many fitness topics from a variety of perspectives. I’ve been a student of fitness and I’ve been the teacher. I’ve been a gym member and I’ve been the manager. I’ve been trained and I’ve been the trainer.

Consumers are faced with a constantly changing barrage of fitness trends, recommendations, and those infamous “scientific breakthroughs,” but the distinction between reliable and unreliable information remains a mystery instead of a priority.

Your fitness results depend on the choices you make every day – from your annual resolutions to how you spend your precious exercise time. Those decisions are only as good as the information you consider.

I’ve written several $1.00 eBooks to help you navigate your own fitness journey: The Fitness Paradox (i.e. the problem) and Fitness Education for Consumers (i.e. the solution).

“Rachel helped me design an exercise program after I was diagnosed with arthritis and low bone density.

Rachel was an incredible help; I would have never started this on my own and certainly wouldn’t have kept up with it.”

“Rachel is personable, extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and was incredibly helpful in getting me motivated and in working towards my fitness goals. She was creative in designing an exercise program tailored to my needs and keeping it varied over time. She knows a great deal about her field and last but not least the hour flew by because of her personality. I highly recommend her.”

Just as overload will stimulate improvements, failure to use your fitness (i.e. under-load) will lead to declines in fitness. Deconditioning begins after a few weeks of inactivity. The good news is that fitness gains can be maintained with less exercise than it took to get them. In most cases, if intensity is maintained, the number … Continue reading The Principle of Reversibility

The Principle of Individual Differences

Two people starting the same exercise program at the same time will notice that different workloads are needed to create the desired overload. One person may then adapt more quickly and show greater improvements over the same time period. Such variations are completely normal based on their starting fitness level, tolerance of effort, genetic differences … Continue reading The Principle of Individual Differences
