Why I Love Fitness/Nutrition Coaching!
Many ask how I’ve ended up in the field of fitness training and nutrition coaching. I’ve always enjoyed the feeling of being well and at optimal energy to enjoy life-whatever stage I was in. My mother often wondered if one day I would collapse with such ongoing energy. When she said, ” geez, you never…Read More
Whenever I hear the word, “diet”, I cringe! Aghhhhh! Maybe it’s because I grew up in the Twiggy era (anyone remember?) She was that super stick thin skinny model we were all ‘suppose to’ emulate! And, I NEVER was going to have that kind of shape- I got hips! 🙂 Even our mothers, God…Read More

Many clients say, ” Ewwww, I just can’t stomach eating when I first get up!” I let them know that it’s not necessary to eat a grandiose plate…Read More

Just about every day I have a smoothie that includes protein and fresh fruit. A smoothie is an awesome way to add protein grams in your daily nutrition, get servings of fruits or vegetables (although, I am not personally fond of vegetables ground up…I’ll eat those fresh!….just me…), and make for a nice…Read More
The Benefits of Online Nutrition & Fitness Coaching
Many ask, “How does this online training and nutrition coaching work?” It’s all done via Skype or FaceTime. Don’t know what Skype is? Most of us with a laptop have a built in camera. Skype is a free download. You go to Skype.com, and follow the prompts to establish Skype app on your desktop. Or…Read More
I Want to Eat Well & Exercise, but….What's My Problem?!
I have a current client who is really struggling with exercising on her own and being committed to eating healthy. With tears in her eyes, she said, ” I don’t know what my problem is!” I can’t seem to get motivated! What about you? Can you relate to that same struggle? Truly, healthy living requires…Read More
