Owner and head coach Rachel has been in Crossfit since December 2012. She competed in gymnastics for 18 years, finishing her career as team captain at Division 1 Kent State University in Ohio. "I always had dreams to open up my own gym one day and have a passion for sport, which led me to a Kinesiology major and a minor in Entrepreneurship."

Upon graduating in 2012, Rachel opened CrossFit Parallax in May 2013. Although still new to CrossFit, she knew this was where she belonged and she wanted to spread the love for fitness to everyone she could. She holds a Crossfit Level 2 certificate, as well as her CFL1 nutrition certification. She enjoys teaching her gymnastics seminars within the tri-state area. She has coached multiple masters athletes and a team to the Crossfit Games as well as helping 2 individuals to the regional level in addition to herself.
