Fitness is my passion and my profession.
My name is Rachel and my own fitness journey began in high school. At home I did Jane Fonda’s workout video. At school I signed up for a gym class to learn how to lift weights. I also joined the neighborhood health club to take aerobics classes. 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 an athlete as well as a coach. I’ve been trained and I’ve been the trainer.
One constant has been the power of the fitness myth. Many fitness myths have shown resistance to debunking that would make bacteria jealous. 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. Knowledge determines both attitude and action and I’ve written several 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).
