Monday Motivator: Meet Rachel
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I grew up in Clinton NY and came to Buffalo for college. I work in healthcare/insurance and bought a house about 3 years ago. I started at Rev around a year and a half ago with mostly TRX. I am now hooked – it’s an awesome feeling knowing you are getting stronger and that you are able to do things you weren’t able to before!
What does #RevLife mean to you?
#RevLife means a welcoming and inclusive environment where you are always greeted with a smile. It means a variety of classes that helps to keep things interesting and awesome instructors that encourage and push you to be your best!
We all get in the zone in different ways. Where does your head go during a workout?
I am usually trying to focus on my form and getting lost in the music allowing myself to forget the stress of the day.
What’s your favorite class at Rev?
I don’t think that I could ever pick a favorite, but there are my classes that I keep taking week after week! Advanced TRX, RevShred, RevRow+Strength, Rev+TotalBody, and RevRide are all on that list.
What’s your favorite meal/snack to eat after a tough workout?
I am usually eating dinner or brunch after a workout – I love to cook so my favorite meal varies by the week!
If you have friends visiting from out of town how do you show them the perfect Buffalo day?
Every year we have a group of friends that come in from out of town and we give them the full Buffalo experience. Sabres game on Friday or Saturday and tailgating with a Bills game on Sunday. Lots of beer, bar food, and sports-total Buffalo!
What’s your favorite place to brunch in Buffalo?
Roost, hands down. But I would never turn down a Britney on an everything bagel and a ginger cookie from Bread Hive.
Early bird or night owl?
Night owl, but I am trying to get better with mornings.
What’s your ideal rest day look like?
There is for sure some couch time involved. And if it’s a nice day some sunshine and fresh air doesn’t hurt.
What’s your favorite guilty pleasure song?
It would have to be something pop/hip hop from the late 90’s early 00’s like anything by Salt-N-Pepa!
If you were shipwrecked on a deserted island which 2 luxury items would you want to have?
I would definitely need sunscreen and a lot of books.
Cats or Dogs?
Yes please. I love both but I have a cat named Charlie who acts more like a dog.
If you were to win $100 million today what’s the first thing you do?
