Coach Rachel is our newest member to the Harbor Park CrossFit Team. Rachel has been CrossFitting for 3+ Years and she is a specialist in gymnastics movements. Coach Rachel has her USA Gymnastics certification and was previously a gymnastics coach. She was a national champion, and 5x state champion in gymnastics, so she knows her way around these movements pretty well.
One of the things that mad Coach Rachel a perfect fit with the team was her passion for helping others. Rachel says, “I’m passionate about changing people’s lives, and helping them accomplish everything they have dreamed of and more! I want everyone to live a healthier lifestyle so they can enjoy life the way they should be able to, and not be restricted to anything as they grow older.”
Rachel says that the best part of being a CrossFit Coach is, “I absolutely love being a part of someone’s journey. Being a reason they PR, or get a new skill down. I love the relationships I get to build, with such amazing people. And I love being able to see my members improve everyday of their lives.”
Rachel’s path to CrossFit was a lot like others, and she describes it as a journey… “I was a little lost in my way of life. A friend suggested CrossFit to me because of the gymnastics involved. I tried a class, fell in love, and just dove right in! Worked my way to learning more about the sport, moved to Wisconsin, and got an internship at Harbor Park CrossFit to start my career. It was the best decision I have ever made in my life.
When she is not CrossFitting, Rachel has her nose in a book or finding something else she can be active with, such as swimming or hiking… Oh, and she loves to eat!
