Rachel likes science, and Rachel likes fitness.

She spends a lot of time sorting through information that is available online, and often ends up having feelings about them. This is where she makes those feelings known.

She’s not a doctor, not a personal trainer, not a nutritionist or dietician, nor does she have any exciting letters appended to the back of her name, but I think we’ve more than made up for that with the name of this newsletter. She does have a half-decent analytical mind, and doesn’t understand the meaning of moderation when it comes to exploring a new topic of interest. (The fitness thing seems to be sticking.)

This newsletter should not be confused with medical advice, and any recommendations contained are purely the author’s (layman) opinion. Please do not follow any advice if it contraindicates anything your medical professional-type person has told you, or if it makes you feel crappy.

And if you spot anything that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to you, please get in touch at rbssjofans@gmail.com — if I’ve learned anything at all, it’s that I don’t nearly know everything.


I send a new (free!) issue out twice a month (second and fourth Wednesdays are the plan for now), and all previous issues can be found on the website, or in the archives. I don’t charge for this content, and have no plans to start. Any product recommendations mentioned are unbiased personal preferences. (Or…is it biased, since it’s what I like? Either way, they’re not sponsored/paid for.) If affiliate links are used in future, it will be made abundantly clear.

If you’d like to hear from me more often, I’m pretty active on Instagram (and much less so on Twitter), though that content isn’t all fitness-related.
