I understand that you don’t have a lot of time, I get it! It’s my mission to help you achieve your best life, and your best body as efficiently as possible.
Sharing my passion for health, wellness, and happiness is what brings me pure joy so the fact that you are here and that I get to know you and offer my help is such a gift.
I haven’t always been so interested in health and fitness. Growing up I was a chubby kid with poor eating habits and I wasn’t comfortable in my skin. I knew that I had it in me to be so much more.
In my late teens I decided that I’d had enough wallowing and blaming my weight on my genetics. I made the commitment to myself to get to the gym every single morning and I did. It wasn’t always easy but every day that stair stepper got a little easier and when I didn’t go I missed it! During this time I was also learning as much as I could about nutrition. I went through all kinds of ‘phases’ and a lot of them not exactly healthy. I tried low-fat & low-carb diets, lots of cardio, eating ‘diet’ (nutrient free!) type foods and I have finally gotten to a place in my life where I feel like I have the knowledge to have balanced nutrition and exercise.
I feel energized (except when my kids have me up all night 😉 ), and, most importantly, I FEEL healthy. I have added meditation and gratitude practices into my own life, which have significantly lowered my stress level and allowed me to keep a positive perspective. A fit body & confident mindset were added benefits of scheduling the time for all of these things in my life.
Personal Training and Health Coach Certifications:
While at home with my two young daughters, I obtained my Personal Training and Health Coach Certifications from The American Council on Exercise. I also have a nutrition certification through Precision Nutrition, which is a program that seems tailor made for me as they teach a common sense approach to nutrition that is closely aligned with how I live. Obtaining these certifications along with the development of life coaching skills have allowed me to feel confident in my knowledge and ability to help my clients find their way.
I am extremely passionate about promoting healthy habits to our children.
We live in a society where treats are no longer treats, but instead the norm. Some think that kids can ‘afford’ to eat nothing but junk. Educating children on the importance of good nutrition will serve them throughout their lives by helping them to make wise choices to nourish their bodies and minds. With the onslaught of technology it’s very easy for kids to be sedentary and as parents we have this opportunity to get outside with our kids and to engage them in activities that build confidence. Proper activity, nutrition, and rest are vital to the healthy development of little minds and bodies. We have this amazing opportunity to be role models for our children, let's not waste it!
I don’t believe in fad diets, quick fixes, or doing endless hours of exercise. Challenging the body to increase fitness is key, but over training is not the answer. Eating healthfully is important but you shouldn’t be starving. Again, finding the balance is key.
As a wife, mom, and health and wellness coach with a jam-packed schedule, I fully realize the demands of making you and your family’s health a priority. It is worth the time and it IS possible! You and your family ARE worth it.
I am confident that I can help you achieve your best life.
I am always learning and would love to hear from you. Please let me know what you’d like to see on the site if you don’t find it here.
