Monday Motivator: Meet Rachel
Back in Buffalo after 6 years in NYC and 4 in San Fran, we’re excited to have this Monday Motivator in town! Rachel stays busy making great things happen at a local non-profit and sweatin’ it out at Rev in her fav class – RevRide – on a very regular basis. Get to know this Buffalo chicka and her fun story below!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Born and raised in North Buffalo, I spent 6 years in New York City and 4 in San Francisco. I moved back last year and am so grateful for my Buffalo community. I bought a house, have a great job, and a great group of girlfriends. I am a Marketing Director and an Executive Director of a non profit, and I’m currently working on a campaign for City Court Judge Shannon Heneghan. I stay busy.
What does #RevLife mean to you?
It means living an active life with a supportive community of people who have similar interests and inspire you. It’s a good balance between being healthful and aware, but also knowing when to have fun and indulge. I excel at the indulge part.
We all get in the zone in different ways. Where does your head go during a workout?
Honestly, I’m not sure. I think I black out. Or I’m telling myself, you can do this…because usually half way through a workout I’m ready for it to be over. But then I’m so happy and gratified when I push myself.
What’s your favorite Rev class?
RevRide. I love the music and it goes by so quickly.
What jams really get you motivated to sweat?
I’m all over the map but I guess the usual suspects are: Kygo, Robyn, Justin Beiber, GirlTalk, Calvin Harris.
What’s your favorite meal/snack to eat after a tough workout?
I either work out early in the morning or late at night, so if it’s morning I’d say an omelette, if it’s evening anything with peanut butter.
What’s your favorite dinner spot in Buffalo?
This question couldn’t be tougher for me. I’m going to go with Left Bank because it is consistently amazing.
If you could choose your superpower, what would it be?
I love to travel and want to see as much of the world as possible, so I’d have to say the ability to teleport. Or the ability to converse in every language!
Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
Keri Russell. I moved to New York for college and chopped off all of my curls mostly because that’s what her character did on “Felicity”.
