About Rebecca

I’ve been on my own health and fitness journey for over 25 years, and it continues with each day. I love sharing the benefits of a healthy lifestyle with others!

I was an athletic, skinny kid but at about age fourteen gained some weight from too much junk food and not enough exercise. To nip this in the bud, I took walks around the school track, then built confidence for consistent five-mile power walks on streets with steep hills. I eventually added jogging intervals and resistance exercises. I was really appreciating the benefits of exercise and began learning how to eat healthier as well. I wanted to keep progressing so asked relatives and friends to go to the gym. As soon as I could drive, and get my own membership, I went on my own and haven’t stopped for over twenty years. I began performing better athletically, winning regional tennis tournaments and competing nationally in college.

I know in order to reinvent our health a conscious, deliberate effort must be made. I also know it’s challenging with excuses, procrastination, justifications and maybe even the fear of failure popping up ready to deter progress and consistency. Deciding to act is a major challenge, but true change comes from just one positive action at a time. No matter the obstacles or how many times you may have tried before without lasting success, I believe the only failure in life is the decision to give up and stop trying!

There is no “secret” to losing weight and getting fit. There are proven principles, but a lot of confusing information, deceptive agendas and sales tactics steer people away from the truth. My mission is to simplify things, making improved health and fitness as inclusive and non-intimidating as possible. I feel privileged to support people with lifestyle changes that can make the difference between sickness and health; being in a rut and freedom; feeling weak and being strong; lacking self-confidence and feeling confident.
