Hello, My name is Rachel. I was born and raised in Montana and enjoy hiking, biking, golfing, skiing, paddle boarding and pretty much anything else I can do outside. Growing up, I did not participate in sports or like working out at all. I never aspired to be fit. That all changed when a friend convinced me to come try a workout at AA in 2013. I have been hooked ever since. The workouts have become an equal test for me both physically and mentally. I went from avoiding exercise at all costs, to having the best part of my day be in the gym. For me, the people make all the difference. Knowing that I have a community of friends to push me through a tough workout, keep me accountable, joke with me, challenge me to add more weight, and even have a post workout beer with is what makes it special. I have watched friends’ journey through CrossFit increase their confidence, body image, desire to try new things and so much more. Since earning my Level 1 Certification, I am looking forward to helping many others find their new strengths through fitness.
