“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.” ~B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga guru B.K. S. Iyengar’s says it best. The gates of the soul are open when you’re healthy. I ascribe to the same ideals by taking a holistic approach to good health which focuses on the mind, body and spirit. We often draw from current or past weaknesses to either improve our life condition or maintain the status quo and that of course may not be the best path to good health.

No, it’s not something I’ve personally done, but you may know someone who at some point has. Eat what you want, when you want. Find comfort on the couch curled up watching TV with a bag of chips in one hand and a refreshing high sugar soft drink in the other. My alternatives are to train yourself to stay in motion, opting instead to make simple changes and thoughtful food choices.

Do some squats and leg lifts in front of that flat screen if you don’t want to miss your favorite show. You eventually want to do more like taking walks through the park, inhale and exhale while enjoying the peacefulness of the wind brushing across your face. Guess what? You’re burning calories. Think about it this way. Walking at a moderate pace (3 mph) for 15 minutes will burn 50 calories; 30 minutes will burn 100 calories; 1 hour will burn 200 calories.

My fitness vision was inspired by my own personal experiences and professionally while working in the field of mental health. I incorporate exercise and nutrition into my physical fitness plans. No fad diets. Plant based creative cooking and simple meal preps satisfies our insatiable desire to fill up without the high fat. With 16 years of expeirence working in the food industry and a passion to help people achieve optimal physical health, my commitment is personal and on point to strive for excellence.

Testimonials from past clients include mothers who never thought they could stand tall and see their feet below their chest, and middle aged men with beer bellies depending on pockets full of pills to ease the pain of gas or indigestion. I say fight those preventable health conditions with a fitness battle plan.

I am inspired mostly by the athletes who face life changing injuries, but get a second chance to do what they dream by getting back in the game after consulting my practice and following my individualized program. Simply put, change your life and your lifestyle will change.

All consultations include health assessments, medical history, consultation, individualized training plans or small group training.
