Raquel graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Exercise and Sports Science. Originally intending to go to PT school, Raquel fell in love with personal training while learning how to become a better land athlete after having played water polo for over a decade.  She moved to NYC completing personal training certifications with NCSF and the full comprehensive Pilates Apparatus through the PhysicalMind Institute. She then began personal training with Equinox at Greenwich Ave while continuing to play water polo with TNYA.  Raquel was introduced to Triathlons and found the combination of her swim background, Pilates, kettlebells, and strength training to be a beautiful training strategy.  


After living in NYC for 3 years she moved back home to the Conejo Valley and has completed StrongFirst Kettlebell L1, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) Level 3, Precision Nutrition L1, and Brianna Battles's Pregnancy and Post Partum Athleticism course.  After suffering her own spinal fracture and returning back to an active lifestyle Raquel aims to pull from different movement disciplines to help people return to their life whether it be recovering from an injury, weight loss, or athletic performance.  


After training with Equinox for 7 years both in NYC and Westlake Village, Raquel now joins the team at BodyLogic with long term aspirations to create a program to help children with Tourette's Syndrome learn to manage their motor tics through customized exercise.
