Rachelle - Coach

About
I started CrossFit in 2012, training competing and coaching in Auckland until I moved home to Christchurch. I'm a health enthusiast, lover of great coffee and time well-spent with a barbell, I seem to live life at high speed…if I am not in the gym you’ll likely find me out on the road in my running shoes, boxing or spending time in the kitchen (loves cooking and loves eating!). I truly believe the people you surround yourself with on this amazing journey, the thoughts you allow to occupy your mind and how you treat your body will all contribute to increasing your own resolve to always, always strive to be better than you were yesterday. Ask the questions, practice practice practice, and throw your heart into class every time you walk through the doors - I want to help fuel your ambition no matter what level you are at! Favorite WOD; Grace. Favorite movement; Squat. Rachelle gets her inspiration from everyone else in the gym. Rachelle can also design the most amazing houses at Online Design and Build.

About
When I first started CrossFit I was scared and had no confidence so I decided to do one on one lessons with one of the coaches for 5 weeks until I had the courage to be apart of a class...It was best thing I ever did. Not only do I love Selwyn Strength it was the people and the community that kept me coming back. It became my second family. I loved it so much that I finally convinced my hubby to join, before long he got the CrossFit bug and now we fight over who gets to go to the early morning class and who gets the kids ready for school. We found it nice to have a common interest other than our normal routine of what is going on at home. CrossFit at Selwyn Strength has given me confidence in more ways than one, confidence I never thought I would have. Being apart of Selwyn Strength family has Inspired me so much that I decided to get my qualifications to become a coach so that I can give back to the community and give other people that confidence like it has done for me.
