Believe in the ability to recover & thrive. Believe in the power of your mind. Believe in the practice of gratitude. Believe in self-compassion and love.
I do not prescribe 1 specific diet approach. Instead I focus on “best practices” for your needs. I go about that by reverse engineering what your body needs for your situation and goal. I then coach you on the most important habit to practice that will achieve that goal.
I believe that we are designed to be strong and move comfortably. These qualities are necessary for optimal performance in our daily lives. Being able to move properly is key. Once proper movement patterns are instilled the body will thrive.
Strength and Nutrition focuses on fundamentally helping you eat and move better. I provide a complete plan – designed for you – that will take you through every step of the way on the path toward achieving your personal goals. One size does not fit all! Everyone has specific goals and a specific body. I focus on customized results using an unique program based on proven methods and modalities. Using my experience, education, and unique approach to fitness I have designed an online training plan designed for anyone with IBD looking to recover strength and movement. You’ll discover how simple, safe, and effective movements along with practical nutrition habits will help reconnect your body and health to regain your strength and ability to live healthier again.
