Rachel Gargano

QT2/Core Diet Dietitian


Details

Rachel is a Registered Dietitian, board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, and Wellness Coach.  She holds an undergraduate degree in Exercise Science, masters in Nutrition Communications, and completed her dietetic internship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in 2006. 

In addition to working as a Core Diet dietitian, Rachel is a nutrition consultant with a private practice.  While she works with a variety of clientele, athletes are one of her favorite groups to counsel because of their passion and ambition for optimal performance.  Good nutrition is essential for athletic performance.

Rachel provides sports nutrition counseling to athletes at all skill levels and of all ages, including juniors.  She has not only worked with beginner, age group, and pro triathletes and marathoners, but also with young athletes involved in triathlon; high school cross country and track, wrestling, and volleyball; as well as junior athletes striving for the Olympics in sports such as swimming and cross country skiing.

Rachel believes that nutrition fuels our bodies both physically and mentally.  That ultimate performance both in the office and on the field is based on what we choose to put in out mouth.  Her nutrition philosophy is that the human body is made to function in wholeness and wellness; and healthy eating shouldn’t be a chore, but rather natural, intuitive, and delicious.

As a life-long athlete, Rachel has been involved in many athletic disciplines; from competitive gymnastics and all-around track and field, to triathlons and running.  She has completed a 70.3 ironman, many triathlons, marathons, fistfuls of shorter distance races, as well as team long-distance relay races.
