Your mind, body and soul are an entire unit that work together every day to get you through any task that you undertake. Health is a combination of all three of these components, so it makes sense that none of them can be left behind. To be healthy - Yes, it is about eating healthy and exercising regularly, but it is also about your thoughts and emotions. I love taking the holistic approach to health and bringing all avenues together.

BEST EXPERIENCE WITH A CLIENT OR GYM MEMBER
I was working with spinal cord injury patients. These patients need to learn how to walk, brush their teeth and even clothe themselves all over again, as if they were learning it for the first time. I was working with a young woman who had not been able to walk in 2 years following an accident to her spinal cord. After 6 months of muscle activation for her muscles to be used again, of strengthening her mind-to-body connection and counselling her through the tough stages … she took her first step! Amazing is an understatement, a truly profound moment.
