Rachel (Waymire) DeVries is the founder and owner of WAYfit Nashville, (formerly WAYfit Chicago) a personal training and group fitness company that provides results-driven, fun, high-intensity workouts. The story began in 2013 when Rachel, a 30 something independent career woman, found herself wanting more. In addition to her full time job, Rachel has a passion for health and fitness and loves nothing more than sharing her ideas and experience with others. So, after some prayer and soul searching, she signed up to be certified in personal training. She quickly built a roster of clients based on referral alone and was training individuals and groups five days a week. Fast forward to late 2014, Rachel and her new husband, Andrew, both decided to quit their jobs and relocate their lives to Nashville. Andrew went to college in middle Tennessee and Rachel had grown up visiting Nashville for extended family reunions. The southern hospitality and charm coupled with the slower pace of life were alluring. So, here she is, building WAYfit Nashville, excited to meet and transform each new client.
Rachel’s charismatic and positive attitude provide a motivational atmosphere that allows clients to push themselves past the “I can’t” attitude that ensues the moment a workout becomes challenging. She is NASM certified, a yoga enthusiast and paleo believer; but above all, Rachel’s philosophy is one of balance and self-forgiveness. One workout with Rachel and you will be hooked!
