WEIGHT LOSS & WEIGHT GAIN EXERCISE & NUTRITION
We work with women and children wanting to lose weight and gain muscle to feel healthier, and those who are making a more drastic lifestyle change to lose a significant amount of weight. Our trainers and nutritionists are experienced in coaching clients through this journey with empathy, accountability, and consistency.
PRE & POST-NATAL
We offer pre and post-natal services in both exercise and nutrition. It is important to maintain a healthy routine during pregnancy to help the body prepare to deliver a strong and happy baby and ensure recovery after giving birth is quick and easy. Exercising throughout pregnancy has also been thought to decrease cravings, boost mood, improve sleep, prevent excessive weight-gain, decrease nausea, and lessen postpartum depression.
Are you interested in competing, or just want to get extremely strong? We can help you with both, either through in-person coaching, or with online programming, both are personalized and progressive. MJ does all our powerlifting coaching, and she competes with USPA and IPL, and holds multiple records in the 67.5kg weight class.
Powerlifting is a pure strength sport. Powerlifters perform three competitive lifts: the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift. A lifter receives three attempts for each event. Only the heaviest successful attempt is counted. At the end of the competition, the lifter’s best lift from each event is added together to make up the lifter’s total.
Are you an athlete looking to improve strength, power, and coordination for your sport? Are you a more advanced lifter looking to further your skills by introducing olympic lifting into your regimen? We’ve got you covered.
The sport of weightlifting consists of two lifts: the snatch and the clean & jerk. In the snatch, the weightlifter lifts the barbell from the floor to overhead in a single movement. In the clean & jerk, the weightlifter lifts the barbell first from the floor to the shoulders (the clean) and then from the shoulders to overhead (the jerk). In a competition, each weightlifter has three attempts in the snatch and three attempts in the clean & jerk. The weight of the best of each lifts is added to create the weightlifter’s total, and the best total wins.
EATING DISORDER RECOVERY
Now you’re probably thinking “What exactly is Eating Disorder Recovery Coaching?” To start, Eating Disorder Recovery Coaching is similar to Life Coaching, except there is a specific focus on healing your relationship with food and your body.
When working with us, we recommend our clients commit to a minimum of a 3 month program. During this time, we meet weekly to set emotional and behavioral goals designed to make slow and steady progress toward recovery. A lot of this work includes challenging rood rules and disordered behaviors, facing fears about food and weight, and strengthening their healthy self image. Clients may also be assigned tasks between sessions designed to foster personal, spiritual, social, and/or intellectual growth.
If desired by the client, we remain in communication with their therapist, trusted family members and recovery team throughout the process to ensure that everyone is on the same page about their goals and progress.
Achieving your goals is not just dependent upon what you do inside the gym, but your lifestyle and nutrition outside the gym as well. Most people don’t know where to start to get the nutrition they need. With all of the contradictory information on the internet, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. You can remove the guesswork by letting one of our professional nutrition coaches develop a plan just for you.
With our customized nutritional coaching services and meal plans, you can supercharge your efforts and reach your goals twice as fast.
