A native of Virginia Beach, Rachel Buschert Vaziralli moved to NYC to study dance at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Graduating with a BFA, she danced professionally while beginning a career in fitness. Her background in dance set the foundation for her skills teaching yoga and Pilates. She then fell in love with the musicality and athleticism of indoor cycling which led to a love for road racing, winning her age group in the NYC Biathlon in 2009 and placing 2nd overall in the Prospect Park Duathlon in 2011. Currently she teaches a wide variety of classes at Equinox NYC including cycling, tabata, treadmill race training, biathlon, kettlebells, metobolic conditioning, and ViPR.
