Rachel Gilmore , NASM Elite Trainer

Bio

For fitness expert Rachel Gilmore, personal wellness is neither a hobby nor a job, but a true passion, one that extends from her own weight loss journey and continues with every client who she works with. She wasn’t always a fitness expert, of course, but her own experiences changed all that. Struggling to shed pounds and shave inches after the birth of her third child, Rachel Gilmore quickly discovered the best practices for getting healthy, including both exercise tips and nutrition guidelines. Witnessing the results of these practices in real life—in her own life and her own body—ignited a passion that continues to this day.

 

That’s good news for anyone looking to get fit and healthy. These days, Rachel Gilmore puts her passion to work for her—and lends her considerable fitness expertise. She is certified not only as an Impact instructor but also as a Sharecare Elite Trainer and Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

 

Gilmore’s own experiences have taught her that getting healthy isn’t something that happens as the result of a snap decision, nor can it be attained through a brief “dieting” period or short-lived commitment to exercise. It takes a lifestyle overhaul, and Gilmore’s passion lies in providing the tools to do just that. She’s eager to work with any client who is truly interested in being healthy, and who wants to take advantage of the built-in accountability and professional support that she can provide.
