From a young age I have always been passionate about health and fitness, representing my county in gymnastics and athletics as a youth, running marathons and currently competing for Great Britain in powerlifting; proudly breaking the British record last year and bringing home a gold medal from the European championships.
I have been working within the health and fitness industry for nearly a decade and adore my job. Highlights of my career have included working as an exercise specialist in the London 2012 Olympic Games and spending two months in rural Ghana educating schools and communities about health.
On my return I was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for my dedication to the industry. I gained my Registered Dietitan status after spending four years at the University of Surrey, working in both clinical and community settings and gaining vital NHS experience.
I wanted to combine my expertise in both fitness and nutrition to coach individuals to achieve optimal physical health, emotional wellness and self belief. A particular passion of mine is within the area of performance nutrition.
I work with both amateur and elite athletes including rowers, canoeists, hockey players, skiers, trampolinist’, triathletes, netball players and weight lifters representing Great Britain to improve their sporting performance through optimal nutrition.
Continual professional development is important to me and I am currently studying for my Masters in Sports Nutrition with the International Olympic Committee with the plan to research within the field and gain my Doctorate. Please feel free to contact me with any questions! Rachel

“I have been training with Rachel on & off for over a year & always find her approachable & highly motivational. Rachel has the ability to understand you really well ensuring that all training schedules & nutritional advice is completely bespoke. As no elite athlete myself I feel privileged to be working with such a qualified & professional woman.”– Customer in Guildford, 15 September 2015
“Rachel is incredibly knowledgeable about optimising nutrition to improve training. She is always positive and approachable...no question is too silly. I have been a client of Rachel's for around a year now, originally doing some "pay as you go" PT sessions due to my work commitments and at the moment a nutrition plan. She provides holistic care and promotes balance. She simply is amazing!”– Customer in Tongham, 5 September 2015
“Since training with Rachel, my back feels better and stronger and thanks to the diet I feel I have more energy and can get more done in a day. I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone who is looking for a trainer who not only looks at the gym aspect of training but also the diet side of it. As I have come to learn that without the right fuel you will not achieve the gym results you desire.”– Customer in Guildford, 4 September 2015
