Co-Founder & Premier Coach

Rachel CHello, I’m Rachel Cieslewicz. I strive to educate myself on true and natural ways of living a vibrant healthy life, as a conscious path, aspiring towards my own human and athletic potential. My mission is to creatively apply and share knowledge to all seeking their own truth about who they truly are, and the heights they are capable of attaining as a unique individual.

I will always remember waking up at the age of 12 to the pain I saw in so many while simultaneously realizing how lucky I was to feel fantastic.  At that enlightening moment, I promised myself I would touch as many people as possible to this knowing so they could be free as well.  The full spectrum of my vast life experiences are expressed on this site, as well as in a forth coming book, as my dedication to the infinite beauty and possibility that is ultimately human potential via athletics.

Who I am

I am passionate about helping others become their absolute best, and to inspire and assist them in their journey to finding their own true potential within the mind/body/spirit ~ sport complex. I love helping all awaken to their incredibly unique abilities, and to realize that they are capable, powerful, amazing, and infinitely beautiful.

 What I offer

I continuously nurture a lifetime of experiences practicing yoga, meditation (mindfulness practice) Pilates, and giving massages. My enjoyment of running mountains, deserts and the road, as well as racing bicycles completes my soul.  Evolution within my own passions assists me to help many ensure that their human and athletic dreams come true.

 What sets me apart from other coaches

I have the ability to create personalized training programs that fit within your busy lifestyle. With my 15 years in the industry, I know what works because I understand the science behind training plans and I personally have the same challenge of fitting my training in a time constrained work-day. I integrate mindfulness practice as part of your program experience. The tools I teach you will enhance your sport, your work and your family life.
