Many people are conflicted when it comes to fitting exercise into a busy schedule and the struggle is real. Competing priorities in a very busy, although sedentary, lifestyle reveal obstacles to exercise that are as familiar as the benefits.


The good news is that you don’t have to be perfect. But you have to be focused and you have to be consistent. The challenges we face are well known, but your fitness solution is unique.

Maybe you are…

  • Having trouble getting motivated to exercise?
  • Tired of working out and not getting results?
  • Super pressed for time and want to get the best return on your investment?
  • Able to stay on track, but you want to make sure it’s the right track?
  • Active in sports but you know you could perform better and avoid injury if you had a solid foundation of fitness?
  • Returning to the gym after a layoff and not sure where to start?
  • Not in the market for a personal trainer, but could use some fresh ideas because your routine is getting a little too…routine.

You may be stuck in a rut, getting back in the game or totally new to exercise. Live Better Fitness offers plans to fit any schedule and budget. Fitness is not about me and my program. It is about you and your results. That’s why every aspect of the program will be customized to your unique needs.

“I have been a fitness enthusiast for many years. Like most men, my workouts focused mainly on my upper body thinking that cardio would take care of lower half. Rachel got me to rethink my workouts and add leg training to my routine. It was amazing! My body fat went down and my upper body strength increased. Rachel’s advice enhanced my routine and revitalized my workouts.”

“Rachel has that great combination of incredible expertise and quality as a human being. In the five years I’ve trained with her I’ve never been bored and I’ve never been sorry to see her arrive in the morning (twice a week). With Rachel, training doesn’t end at the gym door. She emails often and responds instantly to email with assistance or friendly advice – including last week when she talked me off a ledge from eating the wrong food. Anyone who hires Rachel is getting an expert and a loyal friend for life.”
