Assistant Strength Coach
Rachel Johnston has always enjoyed being active and learning about the human body. She grew up playing soccer, mountain biking and riding horses. Rachel went on to play soccer at Concordia University. After suffering an injury during her sophomore year, she turned to strength training with Dave Lawrence, owner and Head Strength Coach at MECA, in order to recover and return to playing. Her current and ongoing interest in weight lifting was also sparked by Dave Lawrence, who continued as her strength coach for her junior and senior sports seasons.
