My Story

I have been a Personal Trainer and in the Health and Fitness Industry for over 15 years.  Originally from the Chicagoland Suburbs, I grew up doing competitive club gymnastics and after retiring when I was 18, I coached gymnastics for 12 years.  I attended college at University of Illinois at Chicago.

I moved to South Carolina in September of 2014 where I have been Personal Training and developing my Small Group Training Program now known as Fusion Fit. 


"The Fusion Fit Program has been a vision of mine for years and I've been cultivating and molding it since."

I am also a Nutrition, Lifestyle, Mindset, and Transformation Coach via Rachel's Fusion Coaching. I help people feel and look their best, optimize their health and wellness, and achieve sustainable body and behavior change. 

When not training, you'll find me on or in the water Stand up Padde boarding, swimming, surfing, soaking up the sun, dancing, playing billiards, cooking, or participating in various active adventures and experiences.

My Gymnastics Experience

I am a former competitive club gymnast.  I did 15 years at a prestigious club gym in the Chicagoland suburbs of Illinois called IGI Gymnastics.  I coached competitive club gymnastics for another 12 years - 10 of those years at IGI, followed by another combined 3 years in Orange County, Southern California and Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.  


I competed and coached at the same gymnastics club for a combined 25 years (from 3 to 28 years old)!  In other words, Gymnastics has been my life for pretty much my entire life.  It's my family and my home.

After taking a break from coaching for almost 5 years to pursue full time Personal Training, Lifestyle & Nutrition Coaching, and launching my own business, Fusion Fit, I found myself itching to get back involved in the sport, both personally and professionally. 


Coastal Gymnastics, Bluffton and Hilton Head's local gymnastics club, has allowed me to build a new "home" for myself and other adult's interested in pursuing learning the sport of gymnastics, and even taking it to the next level to compete as an adult.

I am beyond excited to bring you the Fusion Fit Adult Gymnastics Program!  It feels great to be involved in something I’ve been passionate about and built an expertise around throughout my entire life.  I'm look forward to coaching you in the sport of Gymnastics!


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
