Certified Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach

Hormone-Based Fitness Specialist

I know you want nothing more than to feel like yourself again because maybe it's been so long, you’ve almost forgotten what your true self feels like!

 

You dream of a pain-free day where you feel energized, joyful, and healthy, but instead, you may:

  • Wake up feeling groggy and it just gets worse as the day goes on. It’s all you can do to just function, with nothing left over for doing what you love!

  • Always feel bloated and uncomfortable.

  • Struggle with anxiety and nervousness, even when you know everything is okay, you still feel like something bad is about to happen.

  • Are irritable much of the time and find yourself snapping at loved ones even when there’s no reason to.

  • Suffer from joint pain 

  • Look 10 years older than you are due to dry, brittle hair, peeling nails, and dry, dull skin.

  • Battle thyroid disease or autoimmune disorders that just seem to get worse.

  • Feel completely unmotivated, self concious and frustrated because you don't knwo how to change things or where to start!

 

I know it can feel lonely and uncomfortable but you’re not alone! I also want to tell you that there IS hope to feel better!

 

I know this because I’ve been EXACTLY where you may be right now if you're here looking for answers and support.

 

Let me tell you a story.

 

I'd been in the fitness and health business as a trainer and coach for over 25 years already when I began to experience hormmone imbalance and perimenopausal symptoms in my mid 40's.

 

I was a new mom (my first and only child, a daughter, was born when I was 43 and in the best shape of my life) with a new baby at home, working as a head coach in a stressful position for a Calgary fitness studio and I was starting to wake up every morning dreading  the day ahead and counting down the minutes until it was bedtime again.

 

I went from an on the go, incredibly energetic, strong, lean woman able to work out intensely and lift heavy weights most days of the week to feeling constantly sore with burning in my ankles and was gaining weight no matter what I did - even with all the workouts and not eating much at all.

Nothing was working. In fact I was gaining more weight in odd places that I never had before and was becoming more irritable by the day.

Many days I just wanted a hole to appear and swallow me up! 

That was the "not so great" phase.

 

I had to make a choice.

I couldn’t keep going through life like that. I had to do something, anything to try and get better. I owed it to my daughter and myself.

 

I started doing research on my symptoms, especially my awful periods, weight gain and lack of muscle tone, and I found out that hormone imbalance led to every single symptom I’d been experiencing.

 

Now that I had a solid answer I felt better, but I  needed to know what to do about it, a natural way.

 

More research showed me the role that food, sleep, stress and even kinds of workouts played on my hormone health! I thought about my diet which was consisting of whatever I could grab quickly and at least 2 double double coffees a day with chips on the coach at night.and lots of ready made dinners because I was too tired to cook.

 

I learned stress was wreaking havoc on my health I was lacking the vital nutrients and vitamins my body (and hormones!) truly needed to thrive!

 

I began to focus on eating the right portions and types of food, nourishing my body with what it needed (which wasn't more double double's!) and doing less when it came to workouts, not more.

 

What a difference this made!

 

In just a few weeks, I felt an incredible difference.

 

No more joint pain, I was sleeping better than I had in years, and I didn’t feel bloated or anything else. Even better, the weight that clung to my midsection and lower back was going away without having to diet or cut calories.

 

I just focused on nourishing my body and giving it what it needed, and the change was amazing! 

A newfound purpose.

 

My experience changed my life in wonderful ways, and now, I’m on a path committed to help others! And so after more than two decades I have come to specialize in hormone-balancing heatlh and fitness.
