Hello! Welcome to my fitness blog.
My name is Rachel Williams. I am 42 years old, a single mom, a special agent and currently a natural figure bodybuilder competitor.
I have been involved in athletics since I was a young child and hope to share my love of staying fit with you. I currently compete in the world of Natural Figure Bodybuilding. Over the years, I have transitioned through a variety of sports and experienced varying levels of success in achieving my goals.
I grew up competing as a competitive swimmer in United States Swimming. I swam in college and qualified as an All-American and transitioned into Master's Swimming as an adult. Soon, I grew weary of 'just' swimming and eventually transitioned into marathons and triathlons. I loved triathlons and thought I had found my niche. Unfortunately, I suffered multiple running injuries and was forced to retire from a sport I had grown to love. I needed a new goal, a new sport, a new challenge.
I have always lifted weights as a component of my training regime and loved the strength it gives me. Little did I know, I would convert that training into a passion for a new level of fitness.
At the age of 38, I took up figure bodybuilding and haven't looked back. Figure bodybuilding is unlike any other sport I have competed in. The biggest difference being it is a 'judged' sport. There is no finish line!
I have had my share of successes and obstacles through out the years. It has not always been easy but the reward makes it worth the journey.
I encourage you to join me on my journey and begin one of your own!
