About Raquel

Welcome to my world of resilience, strength, and transformation. I’m a mother of two boys, a businesswoman, and a firm believer in the power of second chances. My life has been a rollercoaster of experiences, but throughout it all, one thing has remained constant: my unwavering dedication to fitness and embracing a healthy lifestyle.

My journey began at the age of five, where I found joy in ballet and soccer. Soccer became my passion until an injury halted any athletic pursuits. However, quitting was never an option for me. Instead, I found solace and purpose in personal training and group fitness instruction, allowing me to stay connected to my love for movement and helping others.

Life took me to Texas in my twenties, where I embraced new challenges in both the fitness industry and the corporate world. Despite the demands of business life, I remained committed to staying active and promoting wellness whenever possible.

About a year ago, my life took an unexpected turn. An illness left me unable to move my body, engulfed in excruciating pain and uncertainty. Yet, even in my darkest moments, I clung to a glimmer of hope—a belief that this setback was not the end of my story.

After four weeks of not being able to move my body, I was able to start dragging myself to the bathroom, where even the simplest tasks became monumental victories. Lying on the floor to shower, then summoning the strength to return to bed marked the beginnings of my arduous journey toward recovery. My body progressed from dragging, to crawling, to relying on crutches, until eventually, I could stand and walk for short periods of time.

Through relentless determination and unwavering faith, I embarked on a journey of healing. It wasn’t easy—there were setbacks, moments of doubt, and countless treatments tried and tested. But with each obstacle, I emerged stronger, more resilient than before.

Today, as I stand on the other side of adversity, I am more determined than ever to share my journey and help others reclaim their strength and vitality. My mission is clear: to empower women to embrace movement, cultivate strength, and overcome life’s challenges with grace and resilience.

Join me as we embark on a journey of transformation—a journey fueled by passion, perseverance, and the unwavering belief that there is always more to live, more to love, and more to achieve. Together, let’s strive for excellence in every step, and embrace the blessings of movement, strength, and resilience. Welcome to the world of fitness and wellness, where every challenge becomes a stepping stone toward greatness.
