Have you ever had this experience? You build a fitness and/or nutrition plan like a tower of carefully stacked blocks. You research diets, download a workout and assemble the pieces one by one. Everything is going great right up to the moment when life upsets the balance and it tumbles down around you. I know this well because I’ve lived it. I’ve also learned how to pick up the pieces and keep going, which is what I aim to help others with.
I decided to become a personal trainer to help people find their strength and endurance. Even for those who manage to squeeze in an hour of exercise a day, the other 23 hours of the day is when transformation really happens. I became a health and wellness coach to help people navigate those other 23 hours in ways that strengthen rather than sabotage.
Transformation happens when you shift your focus from what you’re losing to what you’re gaining. It’s not about losing a certain number of pounds, it’s about feeling more confident that you can manage your health over the next 30 years.
For most of my own journey I didn’t have a trainer. Over the years I’ve developed a passion for helping other people at the start of their journey. I wanted to offer support and encouragement beyond the small number of clients I can directly work with. I hope the resources on this site will help others to navigate the obstacles that have blocked them in the past. I’ll share some of the most helpful strategies, books and humor that I’ve collected over the years.
Resilient health habits take dedication and work to develop. They also pay off for a lifetime and have a way of spreading strong roots in other areas of your life that may surprise you. It will be hard, but it will be worth it.
