Health Coach, Personal Trainer, Obsessed with horses since Kindergarten
My name is Meg. I am a certified Health Coach, as well as a certified Personal Trainer, and a certified Group Fitness Instructor. My degree is in Health and Human Performance with a focus on exercise science and I have been in the Wellness industry since 2007.
When I found exercise science as an option for higher education I was hooked immediately. I trained and taught my way through college. I realized after having kids that I needed to lead the way. I decided to take my dream of helping others get in shape, to the next level. I started a business, named for my kids, and then continued my education. After increasing my knowledge of nutrition, food, stress, the immune system, chronic disease, and then more nutrition, I finally found the pieces I knew were missing when my only focus was exercise.
I believe that healthy is an option for everyone as long as they want it and they are willing to ask for help. Healthy doesn't mean your a fitness model, rocking a bikini body, or wearing a size 2 dress. Healthy is feeling comfortable in your skin, and your life. Healthy is feeling balanced, connected, and joyful. Healthy can be simple if we let it.
Healthy also means owning who you really are . . .
That said, there was still a piece missing for me.
I have been obsessed (not an exaggeration) with horses since at least kindergarten. My "when I grow up" poster said one thing when I was 5, Cowgirl! I had a book of horse breeds that I browsed daily and begged for a horse at every opportunity I could find. While I was lucky to go riding on trail horses maybe twice a year as a kid, I finally got my big break in college when I scored an Internship working with therapy horses. I went on to become the Equine Program Director developing experiential learning programs, and providing therapy, and horse (riding) lessons to people in the community.
I learned there, that while I wasn't quite the cowgirl I had hoped for when I made that "when I grow up" poster in Kindergarten, I did have the energy that matched that of the horse. So instead of saddling up, I learned the discipline and the balance of nothing but bare back, mane, and reins.
I thrive off health and fitness and what it does to keep us energetic, happy, and well. I live to be with the horses, and that's where it all came together. I decided to take what I am educated on and what I love and put them together. Finally the missing puzzle piece for my soul showed up right in front of me, my beautiful dream project, 8 Seconds in 8 Weeks.
I can't wait for you to join me on whichever path your Yellow Brick Road takes you.
