Welcome! I am Holly, a personal trainer, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (in training), fitness enthusiast, wife and mother among many other things. My passion is in teaching others how to live their best life both in fitness & nutrition. I love being active outdoors, experimenting with new recipes, reading, movies and mostly spending time with my husband and two kids. I believe we are all bio-individual beings with different nutritional needs. I strive to empower my clients to understand and listen to what their body is saying and help them to get to the root cause of chronic issues. When a person combines this knowledge with proper nutrition for their bio-individual needs and adds in daily movements or workouts, they can then live their best life!
My love of fitness began when my kids were young. Running became a way for me to clear my head from the everyday stresses of life and have “me” time. After a running injury, I turned to strength training to fix a muscular imbalance that was causing my issues. From there I slowly advanced from a self-proclaimed cardio queen who had no idea how to cook and didn’t understand how the body works to loving strength training, cooking healthy foods and learning about the body.
After my first running injury, I continued to find confidence in myself in fitness and many other aspects of my life. After learning the basics of a typical strength training routine and seeing changes in my strength and body that I loved, I wanted to know more. I wanted to learn the “why” of workout progression and daily nutrition. I enrolled in the National Academy of Sports Medicine’s Certified Personal Training Course to learn more.
Along the way, I started to experiment with high-quality foods instead of packaged food. The packaged convenience food my family had become used to eating regularly had to go. Eventually, after watching many cooking shows, my cooking skills progressed. I then received a few requests from friends and family for recipes for cooking. I decided to create a home for my recipes online. My family also asked that I create a website for my recipes so that they can make these same meals.
After noticing what a difference it made to my overall health when I stopped eating packaged food, I wanted to know the “why” of this as well. So I took a Fitness Nutrition Specialist class to learn more. Now I love helping others learn what their healthy is. Finding a balance of what foods and activity levels work for each person and their goals is my passion!After noticing what a difference it made to my overall health when I stopped eating packaged food, I wanted to know the “why” of this as well.
