25 years in the fitness industry
I am a dedicated fitness professional with a passion for improving client health, wellness, and quality of life. My years of experience training with a diverse clientele has been invaluable in my growth and skill in helping people achieve their goals. My clients have taught me how to find a way around any challenge and to appreciate that everyone's journey is unique.
I enjoy working with clients with a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles to achieve their fitness, weight loss, and strength training goals. Staying focused and present with each person is a must in order to learn what motivates and drives them to stay on their path to a healthy and balanced lifestyle, which is often life changing.
A fitness trainer's job is to listen and lead. When done correctly, health and fitness becomes a permanent life changing transformation that is not only rewarding to my client but to me as well.

Rachel Henthorn grew up playing multiple team sports and has always been a competitive athlete. Since then, she has fallen in love with weightlifting and gymnastics, which both continuously find new ways to challenge her. She found her passion in personal training after suffering a severe ankle injury. She found creative ways to continue working out, despite her physical limitations and wanted to share that knowledge with others.
With 5+ years of personal training and CrossFit coaching experience, she is uniquely qualified in providing her clients with versatile and FUNctional workouts. She keeps her clients motivated by focusing on performance driven results. She believes there is a direct correlation between enjoying the training and consistency. She will customize your sessions to ensure success in achieving your fitness goals.
As a trainer I've helped people trying to meet a diverse array of goals, weight loss/gain, greater fitness and health, strength, stamina, toning, speed, power, mobility, movement and stability. Helping others gain insights as well in regards to their overall personal health +wellbeing issues in my time in integrative wellness and pharmacy fields of the greater Portland area over the years.
My approach is through education; teaching clients function and technique on beneficial functional movements and exercises in a fun, open, supportive and collaborative environment, in discovering how one's body responds, moves, reacts, adapts and evolves to all the things life, work and play throws at it.
Having lost over 150lbs over a decade ago, I know firsthand where many are coming from. I believe in starting out by making goals broken down into small steady changes in diet, exercise and behavioral routines along the way which build upon one another. Eventually in time by building in this way, step by step, brick by brick, you'll look back one day realizing you have achieved something you once never imagined possible back when you first started. And I'd love to be a part of the team which helps guide you to success along your journey towards achieving greater health and fitness!
Certifications: A.C.E.- Personal Trainer, Health Coach, Fitness and Sports Nutrition for allied health professionals Specialist.
Also trained as a GNC Masters level Live-well Nutrition consultant, and ABD-CPW Integrative Wellness and Nutraceuticals Specialist.
It all started my freshman year of high school. I realized fitness helped me push through barriers: mentally, physically, and emotionally. From there, I never looked back.
Personal training has always been a passion of mine and I believe everyone should experience the reward of a good (quality) workout consistently through their life.
I became a personal trainer because I want to help people benefit from physical fitness through the work they put in. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing my clients accomplish their personal goals, and that's my main goal.
Personal training certification through ISSA, and I have my CPR certification
