Hi, I’m Rachael!
I’m an athlete, mom and writer…
From a very early age, I learned that there are two kinds of people in life: those who exist and those who thrive. It’s the determining factor between those who progress in life and those who remain static. Thriving is having the guts to embrace your potential, as well as being accountable for your life and wellbeing.
I grew up in an athletic family, playing every sport imaginable. The competition was fierce and my brothers cut me no slack. I learned to either play tough like the boys or get off the field.
As a health and fitness writer, I motivate people to lead healthier, more meaningful, active lives. I show what’s possible and what’s achievable, even for the everyday athlete.
It’s my passion. It’s what I love to do.
As a lifelong athlete, physical fitness and healthy eating have always been an integral part of my life. It’s an investment in personal well-being. For me, the rewards are two-fold: physically, I am now vastly stronger and in better shape than I was as an accomplished varsity athlete and physiologically, exercise is both challenging and personally rewarding.
As a PCOS – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome – advocate and survivor, proper diet and exercise are critical to combating my daily symptoms, keeping my body, mind and spirit as healthy as possible. I’ve maintained optimal fitness for several years now and I’m using my experience and knowledge to help other PCOS sufferers regain not only their health, but also their confidence, sense of self-worth and peace of mind.
I consider myself a complete athlete. For me, it’s less about aesthetics and more about overall health and personal performance. My regimen consists of running, high-intensity interval training, indoor cycling, weightlifting and sports. Advancements in sports training and nutrition are constantly evolving. I’m never dogmatic in my approach to fitness, always willing to experiment with new training methods. Hand-in-hand with being fit is the importance I place on proper nutrition, rest and recovery.
Even as a busy, working parent, I make health a priority – not only for myself, but also for my daughter. Setting a positive example, ensuring she develops healthy eating and fitness habits is critical. It’s important for parents, no matter how busy we are, to actively promote healthy living.
Our children look to us for guidance; it is our responsibility to give them the tools to thrive.
As an advocate for healthy living, it’s important that my writing provides useful knowledge and guides people along the path to optimal health; ultimately empowering them to achieve their potential and thrive…
Thanks for dropping by!!!
