The women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), are one of the strongest women. YES. YES!!!

Your life is unusual and harder compared to most of the women. Sometimes, you cry and feel like an outlier. It is because there is no cure, you may feel trapped and that you will NOT able to experience your ‘true self’ or your reach ‘potential’! You may even ask “WHY ME?

You Can Take Charge of PCOS

A few important building blocks I want to start thinking about it when it comes to your health, wellness, and fitness journey. This is especially true for women with PCOS:

♥ See the big picture, know your why and dreams.

♥ Remove the debris away from your path so you gain ENERGY to stay the course.

♥ Take steps to build and sustain a healthy lifestyle.

♥ Build discipline and consistency to continue to be and feel better.

♥ Build a mindset of a champion.

♥ Leverage resources, seek and accept help to MOVE FORWARD!

As a holistic health and insulin resistance coach and personal trainer, my mission is to help you set and reach your goals, one at a time. We will work the plan we customized for YOU!

This is a multi-facet approach to getting to the root cause of your health concerns. My philosophy includes building your nutrition template, managing stress, moving your ‘fanny’, improving the quality of your sleep, cleansing your body, and even adding more fun.

We will identify imbalances and work on balancing foundational systems in your body from your digestion, blood sugar, insulin sensitivity, adrenals, thyroid, sex hormones, and organs.

Our initial plan is to identify imbalances, establish a plan of action, and work the plan. I will be your tour guide to give you additional knowledge, accountability, support, and tools. Our goal: CELEBRATE YOUR DAILY WINS!!!

In less than a month she helped me clean up my health and stop my bad eating habits! I have lost 11.5 pounds and counting!! I feel better, have more energy and sleep better!” – Michelle S.
