Rachel was a Flight Medic in the Air Force Reserves and served seven exciting years. She first found CrossFit while deployed to Afghanistan in October 2012; Kandahar CrossFit. CrossFit quickly became the best part of her deployment. She loved the community and made some very good friends along the way.
Once her deployment was complete and she transferred to Ohio, her next stop was CrossFit Grandview. She started doing some local competitions which fueled her desire to become more competitive in the CrossFit community. In an effort to improve her lifting skills, she also found Columbus Weightlifting and competed in her first Olympic lifting meet.
Being at the gym, lifting and fine-tuning her technique quickly became a passion. Rachel obtained her CrossFit Level 1 Certification in March 2014 and competed in the Central East Regionals. After coaching at some local gyms, she was able to grow her passion to help others realize their fitness goals while founding CBUS Lifting Co.
"I love helping people move better, feel better, and function better. I always share with clients where I started and how hard it was for me to move. CrossFit has completely changed my life and my mission is to build a community of strength sports designed to bring out the very best in each member."
