For decades her passion was endurance sports, but in her forties, she discovered the benefits of barbell training and the Starting Strength Method. By 2017, this focus lead her to take an internship at Fivex3 Training, a Starting Strength affiliate gym in Baltimore, and she earned her SSC credential in 2019. She has competed and placed in USSF and USAPL meets and has dabbled in the sport of Strongwoman. Rebecca works in the Annapolis/Baltimore area helping individuals of all ages gain strength and confidence in their abilities.
