Hi there, I’m Rachel - a performer and fitness professional living and working in Las Vegas. 


Hailing from San Diego by way of NYC, Rachel brings an exceptional array of experience in the Pilates, dance, and professional fitness fields. She first discovered the Pilates method in 2006 as support to her dancing during her undergraduate career; she continued to complete her nine month, 500 hour, intensive teaching certification in the classic Pilates method with an emphasis on the Ron Fletcher work from Studio du Corps in Costa Mesa, California under the direction of Master Teacher, PMA and Pilates Anytime Instructor, Diane Diefenderfer.

Throughout her east coast tenure, Rachel continued to teach Pilates and grow her private client business amongst several luxury clubs including Fuse Pilates, The Sports Club LA, Reebok Sports Club, Equinox, Mercedes Club, and pop-up classes for Lululemon while balancing her contracts performing with The Metropolitan Opera, Broadway touring productions, TV castings, regional productions and several concerts in NYC.  


Rachel holds a BFA in Dance Performance with minors in English and Biology from the University of California, Irvine. Her strong dance background paired with her classical training with over ten years of teaching experience allows her to focus on muscle lengthening, flexibility, stabilizing mechanisms and core strength. Most recently, Rachel completed her MELT Method certification and is overjoyed to bring this brilliant recovery method to Vegas. She holds additional certifications in pre and post-natal Pilates, Lagree Fitness/Megaformer, Barre, and serves as a brand ambassador for Team38 and FRÉ skincare.

Rachel currently teaches at CORE, The Spa at Green Valley Ranch, The Spa at Red Rock Resort, Life Time Athletic in Henderson & Summerlin, NV. Rachel is a Broadway Jazz and Tap Faculty member with Theater Arts Preparatory School (TAPS) in Las Vegas. When she's not performing or in a class, you can find Rachel enjoying a delicious home cooked meal with her husband, Doug, and traveling whenever possible. She takes on life with grace and strength - the same qualities you will find in her classes.


Let’s create a healthy, active, pain-free life you love!

Much love,
