The 6 power foods have changed my life. My attitude towards food has totally shifted because I feel oh so so so so so much better! I have way more energy. I’m not dragging. My body feels balanced. My clothes fit better. I’m not in survival mode. The thing I love about SFA is it’s truly a sustainable lifestyle. I don’t feel deprived or like I’m missing out!

Making lasting changes in your life shouldn't be stressful or complicated.....

Lemme're a little bit stressed, a-lot-a-bit overworked and struggling to find balance in your life. And all of this translates into you never making time for yourself. 

You've probably tried a few diets (or a lot) but then a birthday party or a bad week at work or the holidays come up and you decide once again that healthy living is "just too much work" and remind yourself that you've failed in the past so that's probably where you are headed again. 

The answer to lasting change is consistency. The key to being successful at consistency is working with a tenacious, loving coach and supportive tribe to keep you going in your new practices long enough for them to become empowering habits.

You're ready to feel in control of what you do every day...but if you're honest, you have no idea where to begin and you don't really believe it's possible to maintain. 



Hi, I'm Rachel, former Dorito and Mountain-Dew addict turned full-time nutrition, fitness and lifestyle coach who helps overwhelmed women find balance, health and adventure in their lives. 

I spent most of my life sick from poor lifestyle choices and through a series of events was forced to make some drastic changes.

With a 4-year degree in Exercise Science along with a Holistic Nutrition Coach certification. I decided to create this online course and Lifestyle Program to help women take charge of their own health.

Summit Fit simplifies the process of creating lasting change by making it simple + sustainable.  

If you can't sustain something long-term, it's simply a waste of your time. 

Rather than give you a list of what you can't eat and make you believe there is some secret formula to weight loss and health, I teach you to nourish your body with the right foods, find exercise that gets your soul moving, incorporate self-care into your life to balance stress and create mindsets that move you into action and abundance.

I didn’t join the Academy to lose weight (but I did), and more than that, I learned sooooo much and started healing my body from the inside out. I started beating sugar cravings. I started healing my gut. I worked out but I was also encouraged to REST. I didn’t count calories or fat or carbs. I was never told what I CAN’T eat, but was encouraged with what I CAN eat.

What's missing in the diet and fitness industry is EMPOWERMENT. 

After teaching group fitness, yoga, private nutrition lessons, online courses, workshops, mindset development, adventure and more the past ten years, I've learned one really huge thing when it comes to helping people successfully change their habits...

It has to touch their SOUL.

You might be trying to move the number on the scale or feel more confident in your skin, but what makes this whole fitness thing stick is when it impacts the deep parts of your life.

When it moves your emotions, it moves your actions.

 Staying committed means you need to surround yourself with others who are pursuing their best...

There is true power in immersing yourself in a tribe of people who are on a mission to thrive in every area of their lives. 

The Academy provides daily opportunity within our private Facebook community to be challenged and inspired by others on a similar journey while create lasting friendships. 

Rich community is something we strive to build both online and in-person within our group events. 

Meet the Tribe

The group format has been a wonderful accountability platform and it’s so fun to see women coming together to better themselves. You’ve created a program that will set so many women up for success!

"The 6 power foods have changed my life. My attitude towards food has totally shifted because I feel oh so so so so so much better! I have way more energy. I'm not dragging. My body feels balanced. My clothes fit better. I'm not in survival mode. The thing I love about SFA is it's truly a sustainable lifestyle. I don't feel deprived or like I'm missing out! 

"Weighed in this morning and lost 8lbs this round and a total of 20lbs since first starting Rachel's program in January!  Rachel you are an inspiration and thank you for being a cheerleader for me and everyone on this journey! This group has been amazing!"

"The results are in! 7 lbs down! My body didn't change this much when I spent 5 months training for a marathon last year. I love that it started with a list of foods to eat everyday rather than a list of foods to avoid."

"When Rachel says that her program is the best on the market, it's the truth. I tried everything from the military diet to the Whole 30 and every fad diet in between. Hers is the only program that will empower you to reach your potential and learn all the skills you need to lead a healthy life." 

"Summit Fit has given me the best start to any of my pregnancies. It has challenge and pushed me, but best of all, it gives you the choice of whether you want to eat sugar or not."

"Summit fit and the principles Rachel has taught have literally turned my life in a new direction. Before this I had severe fatigue and my post-partum depression was out of control. NOW I have had another baby and this time is so different. Despite new born sleep (or lack thereof) I have energy for days."

"Five pounds down and 9 inches lost and have gained so much! The biggest thing I've learned is that I can sustain a healthy lifestyle as a busy, working mom."

"Rachel's program has given me my life back. I can't thank her enough."

"So I did this thing called Summit Fit Academy for the past 5 weeks. If you are looking for a change in your health and wellness or just want to learn and grow more on your journey to better health THIS. IS. IT. I didn't do it to lose weight (but I did), and more than that, I learned sooooo much and started healing my body from the inside out. I started beating sugar cravings. I started healing my gut. I worked out but I was also encouraged to REST. I didn't count calories or fat or carbs. I was never told what I CAN'T eat, but was encouraged with what I CAN eat. It is not a diet and I wasn't marketed a bunch of "health" products/drinks that quite frankly are not that healthy or that I will be dependent on from now on. I was not asked to do some extreme detox or sugar fast or this or that, that is not a sustainable way to live. I never felt hungry and was encouraged to listen to what my body needs. I got STRONGER in my mind AND my body. Friends, this is unlike anything else you will find in the fitness industry."
