It's not about looking athletic...
 
It's about BEING athletic!

Learn the skills you need to support your health as an athlete so you can keep up your performance and retire on your own terms

It's not just about being the best athlete anymore, you want to be healthy

I grew up in an athletic family and we excelled at getting to practices on time, managing school, work and still performing at our best in our sport. Every time I think about how I grew up dancing and playing soccer, I wish I'd had someone on my side to help me think about my health off the field and outside the studio. The health issues I've run into as an adult are a product of the culture and lifestyle of an athlete and that is NOT what I want for the next generation. Beyond having the stamina and nutrition to perform, I want to have strong bones and a body that functions how its supposed to. I want to keep moving well into my old age

and I'm sure you do to.

You have a stubborn chronic injury preventing you from being at your best & you're done with it holding you back.

Being told to stop playing is a common line you hear when injured, but I know you're not ready to hang up your equipment just yet. Whether you're a regular weekend warrior, or just getting back to to it after an injury, let's make sure to put all the steps in place so that you keep your body going (or at least know how you'll be able to keep going without making it worse...)

You've plateaued and it's a struggle to get out of bed or to practice after your long work day. After you've tried everything, understanding any deficiencies you might have could be the key to getting you back to your best self

You're dealing with low energy and fatigue no matter how hard you try to get rid of it

You’ve run into some other issues lowering your health and don’t know how it got this bad

Can't sleep? Acne issues? IBS or constipation? Just because you're a life-long athlete, it doesn't mean that digestion or PCOS doesn't affect you. Health issues can be a vital sign pointing to how your body is doing or a lifestyle imbalance that can be holding you back. You owe it to yourself and your performance to get it on track

You know there is more to life than what you do on the field or in the studio. If you're looking for that balance in your life and how to have FUN with your health (instead of it feeling like it a chore to manage), then you're in the right place

Your Key Pillars to Optimal Health  & Performance:

FITNESS

Your body needs to know how to move, through all its ranges to prevent injury and optimize performance. It's important to understand where strength and endurance training fits into your routine and how it optimizes your performance goals.

NUTRITION

I can't talk enough about this missing link. Making sure you are eating properly for your activity level will be the difference between feeling strong and energetic throughout your day or sitting on the sidelines exhausted and injured.

MENTAL RESILIENCE

There is a culture of comparison in all sport and sometimes judgement and overwhelm stall our progress. Understanding how to re-wire your thinking and confidently move your body is a skill that takes time, but make a world of difference.

DIGESTION & DETOXIFICATON

It’s not only about what you are putting into your body, but how your body is using it. Making sure your systems can properly absorb nutrients and eliminate waste is key to efficient functioning and creating balance. Your ability to digest and detox impacts how well your body produces hormones, manages energy, builds muscle and so much more.

Design the holistic athlete lifestyle that supports your physical and mental health while still pursuing your performance goals: 

  • Easily going beyond the capacity of what is considered normal

  • Being active without increasing injury risks or chronic pains

  • Knowing what foods can help with performance optimizing long term health

  • Having a body that feels young so you can have fun with your future kids

"I truly believe that there is a way to live holistically while still maintaining your athletic lifestyle and performance goals. You are more than just an athlete – you are a whole person and deserve someone one who can support your health in that way. With the proper guidance, you'll be able to push beyond limits you didn’t even know existed"
