Rachael McIntosh

Coach Rachael has been competing in Track & Field in the Heptathlon for the last 10 years travelling and representing Canada around the world! What’s a Heptathlon you ask? “The Heptathlon is a combination of Hurdles, High Jump, Shot Put, 200m, Long Jump, Javelin & the 800m! I played every sport in high school, and ended up getting a full-scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh for the Heptathlon and my life forever changed!” Although recently retired, you’ll still find her getting some sort of competition in at her 9-5 hustle as Marketing Coordinator at Calgary's coolest Indoor Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course INJANATION. Friends describe her as a loose cannon, but she describes herself as the perfect mixture of 50% lazy and 50% motivated.

“I want people who come to my class to be able to get a chance to motivate themselves. I want the things I say to spark their own curiosity "I bet I can do that" or "Today is going to be the day I try that" I want to guide and inspire people to create their own motivation! I hope that every class I teach at least one person looks in the mirror and thinks of something powerful from within themselves.”

Current Goal: Plan and take an epic vacation where I don't think about work, and I come back feeling refreshed and inspired (by-when December 2019)
CRUSHED goal: I competed across the world for Canada in track & field as a HEPTATHLETE from 2009-2018. It was the most incredible, rewarding and FUN experience of my whole life (to date)!
