Are you tired of riding the diet rollercoaster?
Would you like to hop off and become Equipped to Thrive?
Certified Nutritionist, Personal Trainer, and Intuitive Eating Coach
I specialize in helping individuals and families transform their relationship with food and body all without restriction, guilt, or shame. I practice from a weight-neutral perspective meaning that we focus on health-promoting behaviors rather than the scale when it comes to goal setting and to get to the true heart of the matter.
As you can see from my picture, I'm no spring chicken. I've been around the block a time or two. My mix of formal education/training, professional experience, personal lived experience, and athletic endeavors over the years has uniquely equipped me to help men from all different backgrounds to make peace with food/body, improve overall health and wellbeing, and even increase athletic performance if that's your thing.
We were all born with the innate ability to eat intuitively, listening and responding to those internal cues that help us regulate our food intake in a way that's right for our unique genetics and level of physical activity. Unfortunately, a variety of factors have caused a disruption in so many of us and left us struggling.
Intuitive Eating is an evidence-based eating framework that integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought. It's not another diet but instead consists of 10 principles that build on one another to help adults, teens, and kids to rediscover and redevelop a positive relationship with food and body.
Equipped to Thrive is designed to help you understand and begin to practice the principles of Intuitive Eating to help you reconnect with this innate ability.
Not at all! It’s a non-diet, weight-neutral approach to health and wellbeing. There are no rules to follow, but rather, principles to implement in the context of YOUR unique lifestyle, culture, health status, socioeconomic status, mental health, and genetic blueprint.
The short answer is … I have no idea. You might. You might not. There’s no way to know. We’ll address this question in much more detail during the first session.
Intuitive Eating is not a weight loss program. It’s not a diet. The principles are not designed to help you get into a calorie deficit.
Intuitive Eating is a weight-neutral approach to nutrition, health, and fitness. It helps us to unlearn and undo what diet-culture, and even our family and friends, have instilled in us for the bulk of our lives: that our bodies are not ok and that we need to change them to fit society’s ideas of what makes an appropriate body.
The program consists of pre-recorded video lessons, weekly live group Zoom coaching calls (recorded if you miss), and a private Facebook group to interact with other group members and myself between coaching sessions.
The pre-recorded lessons are delivered via an amazing e-learning platform that allows you to view the content on a computer, phone, or tablet. Each lesson provides the video content and links to optional supplemental resources. The system also remembers your progress so you can quickly return to right where you left off each time.
Absolutely! I work with people from all over the world. The only issue will be time zone differences for the group coaching calls. However, depending on the needs of those in the program, I’m happy to provide 2 group coaching sessions each week, one more convenient for those in the US and Canada, and another at a time more convenient for those in the UK and Europe. Hopefully, any Australians can find one of those times doable.
That said, the group coaching calls will be recorded so nobody will ever miss the content discussed.
No problem! You won’t miss out on any content because each session will be recorded and made immediately available to program members.
The only thing you’ll miss out on is the live interactions and Q&A.
Absolutely! You’ll have lifetime access to the course content, mini-courses at the time of your program cohort, and access to any future mini-courses or additional program content created in the future.
I can say with almost certainty that you will! This program is so much more than just learning about Intuitive Eating. It’s a group coaching experience to help members implement and the various principles as well as troubleshoot specific areas and issue that arise during the process.
In addition, I can’t tell you how much I’ve learned by listening to and sitting under the teaching of a variety of sources on this (and any topic). Each professional and group member brings a different perspective to the conversation.
I can’t guarantee any particular outcomes. I can tell you that each lesson is meticulously created with the highest content and production quality. During each group coaching session, you will have a compassionate, caring, intelligent, evidence-based, coach who will listen and do everything I can to help you work through any challenges or struggles along the way.
If for some reason you are not satisfied with program, I don’t want to keep your money. However, the one thing I do ask is that you give it a shot for 4 weeks. Sounds fair, right?
