Rachel Fackoury, BKin

Rachel Fackoury, BKinGrowing up, Rachel participated in a wide array of sports, including dance, gymnastics, cross country, track, soccer, volleyball and field hockey. You name it, she played it!

Rachel ended up playing varsity field hockey at the University of Toronto, where she earned her Bachelor of Kinesiology in 2011. In addition to getting her bachelor’s, she has obtained many strength training certifications over the years. She’s also certified in Mat Pilates (through Body Harmonics) and Barre (Barre Certified by Barreworks).

A Passion for Helping Others

Rachel originally had her sights set on becoming a dentist, and fitness instructing and personal training began only as a summer job. Now she has over a decade of experience in personal training.

Before joining the Dearborn Health team, Rachel taught group fitness classes, and served as a personal fitness instructor in local communities throughout Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo.

“I’ve always enjoyed helping others, and saw the benefit exercise had on my own mental health, and realized how good it can help other people feel.” As Rachel developed and grew her own fitness classes, she witnessed incredible improvements in clients’ physical strength and mental well-being.
