Competing in a variety of sports growing up, Rachel has always been interested in the world of health and fitness. She has worked as an emergency nurse in Melbourne for six plus years, a job through which she sees the very real impacts lifestyle choices have on the human body. Frustrated at the need for Australia to make a shift towards preventative medicine, she completed a post graduate certificate in Human Nutrition (Deakin University).
Rachel found CrossFit in 2013, before making the switch to weightlifting in 2017 and becoming a 58kg state champion and national silver medalist. Tracking macronutrients has enabled Rachel to optimise her body composition to best suit her weight class, and has improved her relationship with food by shifting focus to its role in performance and recovery.
