July 2018- Rachel Schleicher

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

  • I moved here from Charleston, SC to be a primate keeper at the zoo, but I’m from Pennsylvania. Yea, I get to play with monkeys every day (and also pick up their poop).

What brought you to Nashletics?

  • I started at Nashletics for a 6 week challenge and have been wanting to try CrossFit for a few years. I stayed because I love the atmosphere and the variation of moves from day to day.

What's your favorite thing to do outside of the gym?

  • I like playing any kind of sport, mostly volleyball (see you July 28th)! I also like to play golf, hike and am typically up for any activity outside.

What have you learned about yourself since joining Nashletics?

  • I’ve learned I’m a ridiculous morning person and workouts put me in a great mood for the rest of the day. 

What is one think about you that we may not know about you?

  • You probably don’t know that I love Fall because of Halloween and Thanksgiving!

What advice would you give your past self the day before you started Nashletics?

  • I would tell myself that "You'll end up enjoying CrossFit way more than you expected and that joining is a solid life decision."
