Rachel was born in suburban Seattle and spent her formative teen years in Montana, where they let you get a learner’s permit at 14 1/2 and up until recently, allowed you to drive as fast as you want on the interstate. That love affair with speed continues on the bike. Rachel discovered indoor cycling four years ago while living in NYC and instantly knew she was meant to go nowhere, fast. Her classes are set to an eclectic soundtrack and are designed to make you let go, dance, laugh (with her or at her), and most of all, sweat. In her less spare time, Rachel works for lululemon athletica, and lives in Cambridge with her extremely tolerant boyfriend Mike and their cat Izzie.
what's your favorite drink?
Non-alcoholic: lavender kombucha; alcoholic: dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives!
what do you keep in the trunk of your car?
My yoga mat, numerous umbrellas, and embarrassingly, my art history textbooks from college – my mom recently forced me to take them off her hands and apparently I’d rather spend more on gas to lug those things around the Greater Boston Area than carry them up my three flights of steep stairs.
what inspires you?
Seeing people crush goals in any area of their lives!
