Raquel "Rocky" Horsford | Personal Trainer | Dance Cardio | Barre | RockyourBest Body
Meet Raquel “Rocky” Horsford, a professional dancer, choreographer and overall star from New Jersey. Raquel launched her career after graduating from Rutger’s University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts. She worked in the entertainment business for over 20 years as a dancer with New York, Vegas and international touring companies. She also showcased her skills at the Off-Broadway sensation, STOMP and danced alongside Rihanna, Beyonce and Will Smith, to name a few.
After moving to star-studded Los Angeles, Raquel added personal training to her resume and brushed up on her pilates, yoga and dance fitness classes, leading her to develop her own brand of cardio dance called ROCKYOURBESTBODY.
Her busy schedule makes staying fit a piece of cake (or more like a piece of kale!) Raquel nourishes her body with at least two veggies a day and craves whatever is fresh for the season. She also enjoys down time with her husband and six-year-old son. He allows her to be a kid again and experience things for the first time!
PRE WORKOUT RITUAL:
I love my ritual of making a hot cup of tea (green or white) in the morning. It forces me to be patient, calm, and set my intentions for my day.
Fried Plantains (I'm an island girl).
Cool, hip and funky! I like asymmetrical patterns, mixed textures-basically something that would look good in sneakers and heels.
IN MY PAST LIFE:
A Freedom Fighter
