She is an excellent trainer who knows how to push you to your limits, without being overbearing – just the right amount of motivation! Each one of her workouts challenge me, even a year later and I feel as if I’m stronger than I have been in years. If you’re thinking about signing up for training with Rachel – just do it! You will not regret it!” -Ingrid G.

“Rachel has helped me get into the best shape of my life. When I started working out with her over a year ago, I was in decent shape but never really knew how to push myself. Rachel has taught me to dig in deep inside myself and push myself to new limits physically and mentally. I am currently doing things that I never thought my body was capable of doing. My confidence as an athlete has grown dramatically, and I can never thank her enough for that! Currently at 6mons pregnant, I am still working out with Rachel 2 days a week. I feel strong and healthy and know that losing that baby weight will not be an issue, as long as I stick with Rachel and Generation Healthy.” -Maddie D. 

286768_2360813221010_3006794_o“I started working out with Rachel almost a year ago. I just moved to Fort Collins and had my second daughter. After two kids, I felt like I was in the worst shape of my adult life. I had no muscle and what I call the “mom-butt”. I don’t have time to go to the gym. If I do go to the gym I don’t have the mental capacity left to decide which exercises to do nor the motivation to truly work hard.”
“Working out in Rachel’s gym and working out with other mom’s is both motivating and fun. My workouts are scheduled and I go, no questions, no excuses. Rachel’s professional instruction and no excuse attitude push me to work harder than I would on my own. Rachel cares about her clients and her passion for health and fitness is inspiring.”-Amanda Castelli

Brooke“I did boot camp for a year and it kills me that I had to move away! Before boot camp, I my depression and anxiety was almost to much to handle. My mother brought me to boot camp, and even though I almost puked and passed out, I kept coming. After a while, the thought of not going felt worse then going! Then came the nutrition challenge came and things really clicked into place. I was able to completely transform my body but the way I think about health and nutrition as well! Working out was no longer a chore and eating healthy actually tasted good! Since I first started boot camp, my depression is almost nonexistent and I haven’t had an anxiety attack in months! Rachel has completely changed my life and I am beyond grateful!!” – Brooke Maccietto

Devani-300x300“When I started Rachel’s Vipr boot camp I weighed a very unhealthy 225 and hated the way I looked and felt. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Now, 5 months later I weigh 170 and still losing at a steady pace. I have incredible energy and am motivated to work out every day. I absolutely love how amazing I feel 55 pounds lighter. I am not yet where I want to be, so I will continue to train with Rachel Pettine Pastor in her Vipr boot camp and her spin classes until I reach my goal and beyond. It’s my new and forever way of living and I am never going back to the way I used to be. Forever healthy and happy!” – Devani Eckhardt

Edward-Lopez-224x300“I first met Rachel in spin class at Raintree Athletic Club. I have been to over a thousand spin classes throughout my weight loss journey. Rachel’s class quickly became one of my favorites. As I continued going to her spin class she invited us to attend a new boot camp style workout that she was starting called Vipr boot camp. This class is the toughest boot camp class that I have attended. Rachel was always motivating which in turn made me want to push myself harder. I personally burned up to a thousand calories in each class. As I continued to attend these classes I notice my mobility and agility increase from class to class. I had a personal goal to lose 17 pounds over the summer and I achieved that goal along with reducing my body fat percentage. Rachel is a great trainer and has helped me achieve my desired goals.” – Edward Lopez

meganb-225x300“Rachel’s ViPR workout is a great combination of strength and cardio work. Every exercise can become a core exercise along with balance and agility. It truly is an amazing full body workout. Rachel did a great job introducing this new workout that is unique and very challenging. Rachel’s spin class was another amazing workout. Her music got me pumped up to push myself more than usual. Her energy is amazing and I will definitely be a regular in her class! Thank you Rachel for your motivation. You inspire me at every class I take of yours.” – Megan Bragg

GregBBMy wife and I have taken health supplements for years with no clear vision of the what, or why. Rachel has taken the time to understand our goals for wellness. Not just supplements but a holistic approach to fitness and nutrition. She is constantly researching and expanding her knowledge which she then passes on to her clients. The best part is she makes it all fun!  All the while maintaining the upmost professionalism and grace. I have no hesitation referring her to my closest friends.” – Greg Pettine

She knows her profession very well and lives a healthy lifestyle herself. What a blast to use the Colorado great outdoors as a backdrop for a great bootcamp class.
