For over 18 years, I have lived and worked in the health mecca of Boulder, Colorado. I get my strength from being outdoors. As an avid backpacker, mountaineer, and cyclist, I know how important nutrition and fitness are to feeling good and enjoying the activities you love doing, whatever those activities may be.
In working with clients, I have found that each body responds in its own unique way to different kinds of nutrition and exercise. What works for some doesn’t always work for others. The question is what works for you? As a food and fitness coach, my job is to provide the education, support and encouragement you need to find sustainable health habits you can live with.
FOOD - I can accommodate a wide variety of diet preferences, including gluten free, dairy free, Paleo, Ketogenic, Vegetarian, Vegan, Alcott, and dealing with specific food allergies like milk products or tree nuts. The key to maintaining special diets is knowing how to simply prepare a variety of delicious meals that happen to support your dietary needs. That’s where my skills as a chef and a nutrition educator can make a difference. What kinds of foods do you like to eat?
FITNESS - Regardless of whether you're a recovering couch potato or an Iron Man competitor, - who want to take their game to the next level. The key to improving fitness is to know which muscles need strengthening and find ways to build strategies for strengthening those muscles into your daily life. One of my clients gets his cardio workouts playing ping-pong in the park. We'll start with the question of what kind of exercise works for you.
AND LIFE - Life sometimes gets in the way of doing the things we need to do to live a long and healthy life. We're busy. We have family interests to think of. Maybe we have physical limitations to consider. The key to making lifestyle changes, it is important to always address those changes in the context of the life you live. What has been getting in your way, and how can we get around those barriers?
