As a nutritional therapy practitioner, IÂ provide a whole food, organic, properly prepared, nutrient dense Â approach to transformingÂ your health.
The foundation from which myÂ passion andÂ desire for health and fitness began were during her years ofÂ competing as a national level athlete in the NPC FigureÂ division. IÂ became a NPC NC State Judge for body building, fitness, figure, bikini, and men’s physique in 2004 in turn creating a niche market. AcquiringÂ a full spectrum ofÂ fitness and nutrition experience via personal training athletes & general populations asÂ well as owning and operating two fitness facilities for 8 years. IÂ made a shift when my Â son, Kanaan, was born with Down Syndrome. He had many ofÂ the medical issues associated with down syndrome one being the AVSD open heartÂ surgery specific to trisomy 21.
â€œThis was the spark that ignited a place inside me to gradually move incrementally through different learning resourcesÂ to be proactive in Kanaan’s, my own and my clients’ health.”Â Through certifications, research and personal experiences IÂ feel led to expandÂ from the one dimension of fitness where IÂ started developing a much broader vision forÂ optimal health. I continue to open myself up to the places where I am led in spite ofÂ how many setbacks I may have… as each of the setbacks have made me grow evenÂ more. Kanaan is my purest expression of joy and so far my greatest teacher in life…”
AÂ graduate from Nutritional Therapy Association to become a Nutrition Therapy Practitioner. In addition, I amÂ Certified GAPS Practitioner and utilizes Functional lab testing to evaluate the status of how the physiology of the body is functioning.
I seeÂ it as integrating life experiences with a blend of dietary and fitness theories to create aÂ completely balanced program. The focus being not just on losing weight and having aÂ lean physique, but a place of deeper insight for a client to make true life- style changes.Â â€œI want to emphasize whole food and supplementationÂ to restore deficiencies and nutritional imbalances for a client’sÂ comprehensive health. The end result being a client’s body functioning properly and seeking its own idealÂ weight!”
I now own a private personal training studio where practicing a variety ofÂ techniques for a well rounded fitness program. This is where she continues to utilizeÂ methods focusing on proper form, super slow resistance training, using plyometric intervals and functional training with the TRXÂ suspension trainer. IÂ feel that it is imperative to continue to update myÂ skills, stayÂ inspired and on top of new industry trends. This enables me to simplify what isÂ effective and challenge others to achieve their full sense of physical development.
