She believed that the muscle building and sport will help her cope with the disease and make her more attractive.


Rachel was very thin in 16 years because of the constant stress and anxiety for her twin sister Nicole, who suffered from anorexia.

After years of training she took part in the bodybuilding contest and since then she  follows a strict training regime. Rachel originally planned to perform only one competition, but after her successful performance decided not to stop there and take part in other bodybuilding competitions.
