By July 17, 2017 No Comments

Our finest investigative reporter uncovers the secret real life identities of people you’ve only ever seen in sweatpants for our documentary series ALTER EGOS. For this installment @spensermestel finds out a few things about @rachmartino!

🏋 GYM LIFE
:: Usually Attends: 12:30 L2.
:: Started CrossFit: At CFV.
:: Years of CrossFit: 1.5.
:: Origin Story: Noelle Downing, her friend (and fellow CFV member and fashion blogger), convinced her to join. After her first workout (21-15- 9 burpees and air squats), she was so sore she “had to fall onto the toilet.”
:: Fitness Background: Nothing. “I was the kid who got picked last in gym class.” But, because of CrossFit, Rachel had the confidence to explore her fitness options. Now, she goes for 60-mile bike rides on the weekends.
:: Gym Superpowers: Cute, matching workout outfits and wall balls.
:: Gym Kryptonite: Strict pull-ups.
:: Favorite Workout Music: DJ Blanco (when he plays emo music).
:: Loves Most about CFV: The community. “When you go to a spin class, no one talks to you. No one tells you if you’re doing something wrong. No one cares if you’re there.”

🚶 REAL LIFE
:: Occupation: Fashion Blogger.
:: Hometown: Lexington, KY.
:: Years in NYC: 5.
:: Origin Story: After her freshman year at Belmont, Rachel was a social media intern at Avon. She loved the industry and New York City and moved here immediately after graduation.
:: Real Life Superpowers: That je ne sais quoi. Rachel is also a Francophone YouTube star, with 206k fans from France, Canada, Belgium, Luxembourg, North Africa, and more.
:: Real Life Kryptonite: Getting up in the morning (hence the noon class).
:: You’ll Be Surprised To Know: Rachel describes her street style as “feminine for feminists” – looking good in make-up, heels, and skirts while also fighting the patriarchy. For cute athletic apparel, she recommends Kate Spade. For comfortable, Lulu Lemon. For men, she’s drawing blank: “I’m sorry. I’m just a ladies fashion blogger!”
