Rachel has had a life-long interest in fitness including activities such as weight training, running, yoga, ballet, and soccer. She was attracted to barre because it works muscles in a way that her other workouts had not. Rachel is an Eastern Michigan University alumnus where she studied English, Art history and design. She received her masters in English Studies from Eastern in 2013. She is a former high school English and art teacher. Rachel enjoys the sense of community that her students and co-workers provide at BodyFit. Rachel received her barre certification in 2014 after years of being a client at BodyFit.
