Welcome to Back to Basics Nutrition and Fitness.
Welcome to Back to Basics Nutrition and Fitness. My goal is to help you feel and look your best. Change can be tough, but definitely not impossible. Many of my clients say improving their health was much easier than they imagined it would be once they got started. My job is to make the lifestyle changes as painless as possible while still achieving great results. Recently I am noticing a trend with my clients that they have started their journey of adding exercise and trying to eat healthier, but nothing is happening which is why they reached out to me. The majority of the problems are falling into a few categories: Insulin resistance, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and gut issues. Gut issues are a very common problem lately and can be very difficult to navigate on your own. In order to diagnose some of these problems you may need to have tests performed with your doctor. The first test i would recommend is insulin. Most doctors office perform glucose and some will test A1C, but the very first biological change that occurs on the road to diabetes is insulin. This marker can warn you years ahead of time so you can make the necessary changes before you get in real trouble. Even if your blood tests come back "normal" there are clues that your body is giving you that is not functioning efficiently such as fatigue, digestion problems, moodiness, joint pain, etc.
What is health coaching? As a health coach I help my clients navigate the challenges of life from nutritional guidance, stress management, sleep techniques, and lifestyle changes. Many of the problems American's face with their health are created by lifelong habits that our bodies used to tolerate. Over time these habits have created problems such as knee pain due to walking and sitting incorrectly. Skipping meals used to be fine until you find yourself getting dizzy and even falling due to blood sugar. Sleep deprivation was manageable, but now extreme fatigue and difficulty concentrating are affecting your daily life. I help you make these changes AND develop a plan that fits into your life. The next phase is holding each client personally responsible. Making changes is one phase, learning how to implement these changes into your everyday life is where most people struggle.
How is Back to Basics different than other personal trainers? After a decade in the fitness industry teaching a wide range of classes from boot camps to water Pilates I decided to focus on more 1-on-1 training. This change allowed me to dig deeper into the needs of each client and see larger improvements in strength, mobility, balance, and endurance with each client. Creating unique workouts specific to the client from a mix of strength training, Pilates, yoga, cardio, and balance exercises is my strength. Your goal may be increasing strength so you can get out of a chair easier and feel comfortable getting up from the floor when (not if) you fall. Losing weight and reducing inches is often a goal of many clients with the added bonus of increased strength ( confidence), energy level, and reduced pain in joints.
