When I was a young competitive dancer I constantly heard from my teachers and teammates, “I can’t eat because I need to look thinner on stage.” This stayed with me, and among other popular thin female narratives in the media, I believed this is what I had to be. I would compare myself to actresses and decide on what I was going to eat based on my idea of how I could fit in their body. Seriously? Yup. I still can’t stop trying to be cut like JLo…But now, I’ve created a mindset that accepts my body and mind for where it is today. I understand the work it takes to have the body I want for me and I’m not willing to completely cut out anything that I love for it. Further, I coach women to build their body strength and nutrition habits to sustain manageable, realistic, and long lasting outcomes that leaves them feeling full.
People meet with me one-on-one to discuss their fitness and nutritional goals, desire to have a healthy and active pregnancy, learn strength training for the first time or add techniques and accessories to what they already do, and feel empowered and in control of their body. No more gaining and losing the same 15 pounds over and over again through diets and exhausting exercise.
Most importantly, my coaching style is compassionate, loving, fun, and to the point. No bull shit and no fads. All programs are custom, based on your health and fitness history as well as goals and baseline level of fitness. I digitally write out your exercise program to follow and keep. All exercises are scientifically backed to get you where you want to be and are designed to leave you feeling energized. I come to your home gym, or we meet wherever you work out.
I’m going to leave you with this somewhat corny yet true inspo. You, whoever you decide to be, are 100% capable of a shift. And you 100% decide if you want that shift to happen.
