Rachel grew up playing sport; participating in every sporting opportunity she could competitively and recreationally. Rachel has previously competed at county and national level as a swimmer excelling in endurance events as well as various team sports, athletics and horse riding, which still enjoys today in her spare time.
Rachel’s love of Crossfit started in 2016 when attending the gym started to become demotivating and she wanted a change. Following her first workout at Gain Fitness, she loved the atmosphere, the intensity of the workouts and the challenge each class gave her and hasn’t looked back since. Rachel has progressed her skills as an athlete and her interest in coaching and passion for working with people to develop their Crossfit skills grew, eventually leading to her passing her Crossfit Level 1 in 2018 and soon after started coaching at Gain Fitness.
Outside of Crossfit, Rachel works full time as an Occupational Therapist, and is passionate about combining her knowledge and experience of her profession with her love of Crossfit, which lead her to become a recognised Adaptive Crossfit Trainer. Rachel has developed ‘Gain Adaptive’ at Gain Fitness ensure Crossfit is accessible and inclusive for those with a disability or impairment.
