Rachel Barker
Founder & The Love Fit Lifer

Rachel Barker

Although Rachel has always been full of energy and highly active, it wasn’t until 2009 that she actually started caring about her own health & happiness. Since then, she’s discovered a passion for loving herself through exercise, eating right, finding balance and exploring all the positive things the world has to offer. She’s a firm believer in taking action and the power of feeling incredible, every moment of everyday. While she maintains a full time job doing commercial property management, Rachel is also the Marketing Coordinator and an Instructor for Pure Barre Pasadena. Outside of work, Rachel volunteers in the Pasadena community, spends time with her family and friends, explores the beauty of life and strives to work hard, stay motivated and improve the lives of herself and those around her. As someone who’s constantly busy and being pulled in several different directions, she knows first hand how challenging it can be to make yourself a priority. Rachel wants you to know that YOU ARE WORTH IT and that feeling better starts whenever you’re ready to move forward.


Lila Kooklan
The Glam Grad

Lila KooklanLila is a graduate student who’s always looking for a way to bring more positivity and balance to her life. Most days you can find her on campus teaching, doing research, and mentoring her students. All of this barely leaves time for anything else, which is why Lila is on a personal mission to figure out the best strategies for eating healthy and staying fit as a grad student. If she’s not on campus, she can likely be found sweating it out on her yoga mat, eating ethnic foods, or watching “Emotional BBC TV Shows based on Books Featuring a Strong Female Lead” on Netflix–although, she also enjoys a good dose of Real Housewives of New Jersey every now and again to remind her why she loves her friends so much. She’s excited to share her experiences and to bring a new, grad student inspired twist to LFL!
