She holds Weight Loss Specialist, Nutrition Specialist, Personal Training and Women’s Fitness Specialist certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

Rachel also owns an Orangetheory Fitness franchise in Tampa FL. When Covid shut down her studio she was determined to find another source of income and another way to help people. After building nutrition plans for clients for over 10 years she decided to make it more convenient for people to reach their goals by taking the guess work out of what they should be eating. "The idea of macros is to never feel deprived. Diets fail, macros allow a sustainable lifestyle change".
