About Me


Hi! I’m Rachel, the RRCA Run Coach, NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Dedicated Runner behind Strong Soles Personal Training.

I’m on a mission to guide you toward living a healthier lifestyle through movement. Whether it’s walking, running, cycling, circuit training, resistance training, or any number of activities, there is something that you can enjoy while also improving your health!

As a runner for over 20 years, I’ve  completed countless 5k and 10ks, 40 half marathons, five full marathons and four ultra marathons. I’ve also reached outside of my comfort zone and completed sprint duathlons and triathlons. While challenging, combining the swim, bike and run was truly rewarding on many levels!

I remember running my very first mile over 20 years ago and the day I ran my first 5k. At that time, I never would have thought that I would be a runner 20 years later with so many miles of experience.

As a wife and mom of two children, I know how hard it can be to squeeze in time for fitness pursuits. Work responsibilities, family activities and life’s surprises often get in the way. Exercise is easily bumped further down the list of priorities. However, it’s important to take time for yourself and for your health.

Take that first step. Start your journey toward building a happier, healthier, stronger you by contacting me today!
