Goal Oriented. Success Motivated.
Your success is my success. My clients are the reason I do what I do:
‘…I’m in the best shape of my life and I owe much of it to you…’ –Paul G.-
‘…There is no price tag you can put on how that feels!…’ –Bridget S.-“I am passionate about fitness and helping others become as passionate. My focus is always on helping others understand how to adopt health, fitness and a nutrient-rich clean eating diet as a lifestyle rather than a quick fix.
I started “Rachel Elizabeth’s Independent Fitness” (Now Cause Fitness) after leaving an international fitness club because I believe that success and real body transformations are cause and effect; a result of time, hard work, education and discipline, rather than an ever-growing corporate gym pocket. I am serious about the importance of a holistic healthy lifestyle: balancing staying active, eating right, and turning “I can’t“s into “I can“s. I believe firmly in personal integrity, practicing what I preach, setting goals often, no matter how big or small, because goals motivate, and motivation plus education equal success!
What I can guarantee confidently:
I am and will be here to be your habit and help establish your motivation while educating you on the proper form/bio-mechanics, nutrition, planning, exercises, stretches, and cardio to make your goals a reality!
My basic training technique:
Body-type and personal goal customized and progressive, functional-meets-traditional, challenging, & effective.
After taking your personal limitations and goals into account, your program will either utilize traditional progressive volume training for hypertrophy (I love my Olympic lifts!), or high intensity resistance training, and plyometric type workouts. Training splits will vary depending on number of days you’re training with me, your goals, and number of days you can train on your own without me. Cardio schedules are prescribed based on your fitness and physique goals after your resistance training in order of priority.
My personal progress and transformation:
By applying my knowledge and making a habit of challenging resistance training, cardio, stretching and eating clean, I have dropped and maintained my body fat more than 10% since Junior year of college and I’m in the best shape of my life! I now maintain within 3–5 pounds of my show weight by practicing what I preach.
I’m passionate about eating right to achieve and maintain my fitness goals, to provide my body with the nutrients it needs for energy, a healthy immune system, and a life of good health. What you put in your body (what, how much, how often) will make or break your fitness goals.
Yes, regular exercise is essential, but let’s be honest. You’re likely only getting 3–6 hours of sweat-sessions per week. So what’s going on during the other 165 hours? Lots of eating!
That said, fitness should also be fun! Find your passion or what gets you excited and motivated to move! Start thinking about what your fitness goals are, but more importantly, why do you want to get there? Clarity in the ‘why’ gives you more power in your dedication and keeps you motivated.
As for my athletic background, here are just a few sports I have and do participate in recreationally or competitively:
- Snowboarding, yoga, pilates, weight lifting, sprinting, plyometrics, running, mountain biking/cycling, soccer, swimming, camping, horseback riding, boating, wake-boarding, rock climbing, hiking, surfing, kayaking, and more. I love to try anything new. Next on the list to try: Paddle boarding!
- My most recent new sport accomplishment: Skydiving — Nov 17th, 2012!
- I’m a member of the NPC and have competed and placed as Nationally qualified in both the Figure, and Bikini divisions. I would like to pursue a Pro card in the Bikini division this fall as a personal competitive goal and hobby.
- Newest Adventure: I just moved from Seattle, WA to Los Angeles, CA! Hello Sunshine!
And finally, but most importantly, I thank God for His grace, and the gifts of talent and opportunity as well as drive and motivation He has blessed me with. Always remember…
