It's no surprise Rachel is a successful CrossFit and weightlifting athlete. Growing up, she played soccer, rugby, volleyball, flag football, snowboarding, gymnastics, and hockey in college. Rachel started CrossFit in August 2008, impressively finishing 20th at the sectional in 2010, 5th at the Canada East regionals in 2011, 4th on a team at regionals in 2012 and 12th at regionals in 2013. She was introduced to weightlifting in 2012, training in Montreal, mostly coaching herself.
Rachel now owns and trains at her own gym, Crossfit Brossard, and is following Coach Burgener programming on mikesgym.org.
After just two short years of weightlifting, she finished 2nd in the 53kg class last October during the senior championships in Quebec. Next on her list is competing for the Quebecor Qualification and prepping for Canada East regionals after Christmas. Rachel is small but fierce and she represents the drive and determination of a Blonyx beast!
