We first met Rachel Robinson on MTV’s Road Rules: Campus Crawl. Years later, Rachel has appeared on the Real World/Road Rules Challenges, including the most recent Battle of the Exes alongside Aneesa Ferreira. But, you don’t need reruns to catch her gorgeous presence and passion for fitness, because you can train with her at the Fontainebleau's gym on Miami Beach.
BM: How did you get started in fitness?
RR: I was always an athlete growing up. So, by nature, I know a lot about fitness, working out and different performance techniques because they were used on me as a kid. But, in my early twenties I wasn’t working out, and my self-esteem was at its lowest, and really my life wasn’t in order. It wasn’t until I moved back to Miami, when I was just about to turn 25, that I started working out 4 days a week with a trainer and I found my calling.
BM: Can you describe what it feels like to help your clients reach their fitness goals?
RR: It’s amazing. That’s what I love to do. That’s your job as a fitness professional, to motivate people and get them to stay in it. The cool thing about Twitter and other social networks is that I connect with people and keep them motivated as well.
BM: Everyone wants to know, what is your personal diet like?
RR: I believe in eating everything, but in moderation. I include a lot of fish and veggies in my diet, but every now and then I’ll have sweet potato fries. I always eat small portions and when I go out to dinner with my girlfriend, we share our meals. I can’t have an entire entree by myself because I would be so stuffed at the end of the meal.
BM: If you were single, what percent of body fat would a girl need to have?
RR: I’m not necessarily attracted to an athletic body type, because a woman could just be as sexy with a little meat on her. It’s all relative to how you feel and are happy with yourself.
