Meet the Coach!

If you'd like to learn more about me before booking an appointment, please find my story below. I look forward to meeting you! 

Hi, I'm Arlene!

I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Nutrition Coach via NASM. As a dedicated nutrition coach and as someone who has recovered from severe autoimmunity, I believe in the power of food as medicine and aim to empower you to make informed choices for a healthier lifestyle.

 

I work with a health-first, aesthetics-second approach as my expertise lies in never compromising health for anything. Often, aesthetics will follow, thus I do not endorse 30-day crash diets and transformations as they are expedient and temporary, as well as damaging to your metabolic health.

I provide compassionate support throughout your journey, offering education, motivation, and accountability. I am here to hand you a playbook of how to proceed and discuss topics such as: What changes would you benefit from, which diagnostic markers you should test for, what are your doctors potentially missing, and what type of therapies and treatments could help support you on your journey to health. I am here as a guide and a shortcut to a YOU that feels GOOD.

 

I understand how stressful change can be as a baseline and I understand how that can magnify tenfold when we are feeling sick and unwell. My job is to support you through the emotional journey to health equivalently to your physical journey to health. I do what I do to be a part of one less person unnecessarily suffering at the hand of autoimmunity or unexplained fatigue, GI issues, skin conditions, brain fog, or chronic conditions of infection and low immunity. 

 

I made it to my destination and it is savory as salt and sweet as honey. I hope with some care and guidance you will find your destination too. Please explore my website for more information and book your Phase 1: Meet and Greet to explore if we are a good fit to work together towards optimal health.

I look forward to meeting you!
