As well as NUMEROUS diplomas/designations in Holistic Nutrition, Holistic Cancer Nutrition, Personal Training, Coaching clients through roadblocks and Neuro-Linguistics Programming (changing mindset & behaviours)! I take an INTEGRATIVE approach, combining science/research with holistic practices.
Not only will you receive a plethora of information, education and ongoing support from me, but loads of experience from working with clients for almost 15 years, as well as my own personal experiences...
2020, 2021 & now 2022!!!
Throughout my 20's I definitely did not eat healthy, or exercise, and I was a 'Freshman 15' (more like Freshman 20) - gaining 20lbs my first year after Grade 12 graduation!
And I continued to gain throughout my 20's
(also having 2 children during this time in my life).
I had my University education & foundation for healthy eating/exercise, but started to read more books on nutrition to update myself.
I cut back sugar, alcohol, and started eating healthier. I added more exercise - at first I started walking, then added a learn-to-jog (5km) class. I then took some yoga and pilates classes. And within a couple years, I trained for my first half-marathon!
I joined a gym shortly after my half-marathon as I knew I needed to add more strength training. I started working with a trainer and couldn't believe the difference the added strength training made
(I eventually became a trainer myself for 6+ years)!
I tried my hand at Figure Competitions for a couple years during this time (soon realizing this world was not healthy and not for me).
At the age of 35 (12 years ago) I settled nicely into a consistent routine of healthy eating (following the 80:20 rule), exercise, and I also began to nurture my mental health more through more meditation, self-care & compassion, mindset work and living more in the moment.
This was when I started leading/offering weight loss challenges.
With the education AND experience I have - I can honestly say I offer the WHOLE PACKAGE to my clients:
A balanced approach that includes:
- Healthy nutrition
- More activity / exercise (if you're ready to add more in)
- Stress management tools
(and help with stress-eating/emotional-eating)
- Tips for better sleep & more inner peace
- MINDSET work - ongoing support with finding a more balanced, positive, happy, compassionate, relaxed and confident State of Mind
AND along with healthy weight loss - I'm also able to help my clients who suffer from digestive issues, hormone imbalances, extreme fatigue, food sensitivities, adrenal/thyroid exhaustion, and more!
