I have always been interested in health and fitness, but it became my passion about 10 years ago when my husband was diagnosed with cancer. I wanted to learn everything I could to aid his recovery and help his body counteract the invasive treatments he was undergoing.
I took a long look at my lifestyle and researched how important both diet and exercise were in achieving long term health and wellness. What we eat can either help or hinder our bodies and I realised I had been eating all the wrong things. My exercise regime wasn’t as effective as it could have been, and I wasn’t making my health a priority. This is when I decided I wanted to take the first step in becoming a health and fitness professional and gained my personal trainer certification.
I started making small changes in my daily routine, and gradually became completely plant based. Even though I was eating more I started to lose weight, my body was functioning properly, I was sleeping better, and I felt amazing! I had more energy to exercise and stepped up my workouts. I helped my husband recover after his treatments had ended and created a health and fitness program that incorporated everything I had learned.
I discovered how a positive change in lifestyle can help manage the stress in our lives, help us to rest, relax and sleep well. I have seen clients gain body confidence and finally feel happy in their own skin. It’s not just about looking good on the outside but feeling amazing on the inside!
A decade on and I am even more excited to share my experience and help those looking for long term solutions to becoming fit, healthy, and happy!
