NAME: Rachel Guy
CITY: Sydney, NSW
JOB: Fat Loss Coach
Rachel Guy has been lifting weights since she was 13. As a very active child, she played all sports at school and cannot ever remember a time in her life where she hasn’t trained. “I remember my early years of lifting weights. I dislocated my shoulder when I was 13 and a surgeon advised me to start lifting weights as I was like a ‘rag doll’ and had very floppy joints. I went to the gym, rocked up in the weights room and started copying what people were doing. Obviously I had no idea what I was doing and I started working with trainers soon after. Today, I teach others to lift,” Rachel says.
As a fat loss coach, Rachel loves to help others push their barriers and achieve amazing things. She walks the walk, not just talks the talk, and is always in great shape. “I like to stay in shape year round because I like to feel good all the time. Being in shape is a lifestyle and it is vital for ongoing, long term health. I have to be on the ball to focus on my business and to help others develop a happy, healthy relationship with food,” Rachel says. Not only does she stay in shape
because of her career choice, she also loves how it feels. “I love to look decent in a bikini, to be happy, healthy and confident and not stressed about sticking to a very calorie restricted plan,”
Rachel says. Rachel has had to overcome negative talk throughout her career; however it has never affected her as she remains focused on what is important. “Funnily enough these comments come from people who are not in my inner circle. The comments come from people who do not know the hours of work that go into running a business or the number of women I help to become happier, healthier and more confident with food and training,” Rachel says.
