Before we get you started on your journey…

Let us be clear…
This isn’t another ‘quick fix’ certification or a weekend course that doesn’t care if you complete it. We want you to succeed.

And to succeed in this business and in healthy living, you have to approach it from all angles.

Even if you don’t want to teach or coach it all, you HAVE to the knowledge of all areas to get better RESULTS, help more clients and in turn, make more money helping others.

We want this for you.

Fitness, nutrition and wellness are the most powerful medicine for the mind, body and soul. And with this knowledge and tools, every person in the world – whether a coach or not – can truly TRANSFORM their body, health and path to be the one they have always dreamed of.

Our goal is to help every woman worldwide create the health, life and career they love and in turn, build healthier families and communities.

If you’re on the fence or if other certification or courses have left you disappointed (and scared to sign up for another one)…

Then we want to give you EVERY opportunity to create the life, health and career you have dreamed.

That’s after participating in the program for 30 days and you show us that you’ve kept up with all the work including classes, quizzes, assignments and co-op (you have to show us proof!), and for some crazy reason DO you not feel like you are growing personally and professionally, then we will be happy to return the investment.

But, you DO have to do the work.

The Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program is for women who are committed to learning and growing in the fitness, nutrition and wellness fields, who want to spread the healthy love and get more clients,and NOT for people who just want to collect a piece paper to say they have it.

And we will be strict on this last point – you absolutely must do the work and submit after 30 days* to be eligible for a refund.

There’s so much transformation waiting for you on the other side of this program, and since our main goal is for you to succeed, we aren’t afraid to give you some tough FIT CHICKS love when it comes to holding you accountable.

My name is Kelly Hayes, I live in Victoria BC. I just recently graduated! I currently own a small fitness company that offers Personal Training and Group classes, I have been doing this for 8 years. My business name is currently Tone the Zone Fitness, however I’m planning on rebranding and freshening it up and looking to add a online component to it. Best decision ever made was to get certified through FIT CHICKS Academy as there was just so much information and they cover 4 areas that are so important in fitness.

Hi, I’m Rebecca! I’m a personal trainer at a Womens gym. I lost 25lbs through changing my eating habits and exercising . I love motivating and challenging other women to be the best them 🙂
I chose FIT CHICKS Academy for my certification because I love how FIT CHICKS empowers women to be their best as that is what i’m looking to do in my own practice. I wanted to get certified to  help encourage and motivate other women to be the best them . To accomplish something for me.
In the Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program, the instructors are motivating, inspiring and made me feel supported! I loved the encouragement , community of women and of course the amazing instructors!
To anyone considering the program I would say just go for it. You’ve got this. You learn so much about yourself and the women around you. It was an awesome experience. Don’t let fear hold you back from your dreams! You can do anything you put your mind to. One goal, one assignment , one lesson at a time. I believe in YOU!
Rebecca Muldoon,  Hamilton, ON
My name is Ashlee Doucher and I am a part of the September 2018 graduating class. I am a wife and mother to 4 beautiful boys, that’s right…4! After having 4 boys, I was completely out of shape and unhealthy. For many years, I worked in the legal field sitting behind a desk because it paid the bills. One day I decided to take back my life by choosing nutritious foods and getting active. I lost nearly 100 pounds and decided to turn my passion into a career. I graduated from FIT CHICKS Academy and opened my own business called, “The Savvy WELLness Project.”
I was looking to get certified as a Fitness & Nutrition Expert because I wanted to help other women take back their lives. When I was searching for ways to get certified as a trainer, the only website I found that detailed their program was FIT CHICKS. Then the bonus, I was able to speak with one of the founders to have any questions answered and to find out more! During my initial conversation with Amanda, she was very friendly and answered all my questions. This gave me confidence in choosing FIT CHICKS!

My favourite part of the FNE program was that you are able to work at your own pace. As a wife and mother, time isn’t always on my side but being able to work through the program at my pace was very beneficial. I also loved that the program was 3 months, I gained so much knowledge that I graduated feeling confident in what I knew. I also loved how the instructors were so down to earth and humble, they were very relatable. It’s hard to pick just one favourite!

My name is Leona Harter. I graduated from the FNE program February 2019. I am an acupuncturist, massage therapist, yoga teacher, and fitness instructor. I believe health is as much a state of mind as a physical state of being and want to empower women to be the best versions of themselves mentally, physically, and spiritually. I combine my training in Chinese Medicine, Integrative Health Coaching, and fitness to help women who want to improve their health and feel better mentally and physically. I’m here to inspire all women to take back control of their health and transform their life. I am passionate about helping women reclaim their voice and love to educate about health prevention and self—care. I believe in the power of food as medicine and the importance of the mind-body connection. When not engrossed in the world of medicine, teaching classes, or inspiring women to be their best, i am an avid yoga practitioner. A few of my guilty pleasures include weekend getaways, binge reading a good book, watching movie classics, or enjoying anything that’s salted chocolate caramel.
I did the Fitness & Nutrition Expert  program as a refresher. I think every instructor should be certified and stay up to date on trainings in order to be able to offer the most effective plans to their clients. I chose FIT CHICKS Academy for my certification because I love how FIT CHICKS empowers women to be their best as that is what i’m looking to do in my own practice.
I loved the resources and the availability of the FNE staff to answer questions and offer support. To anyone looking to take the program I would say: Do it! Even if you already have a fitness background, it will add layers to your knowledge and provide a ground work for future trainings.

My name is Michelle Bailey. I graduated from the Fit Chicks Fitness and Nutrition Expert Program in January of 2019. I’m born and raised in Fort McMurray, Alberta and have graduated from the University of Alberta in the spring of 2018, where I studied Anthropology and Human Geography. I wanted to get certified because I’ve been passionate about health and fitness for many years. Throughout my time at university, I started getting really into fitness and health. I’ve grown to love it so much that I wanted to help other women reach their goals and become confident and happy in their lives.
I chose FIT CHICKS Academy for my certification because out of all of the Canadian online programs I compared, this one is the most holistic course I found. FIT CHICKS Academy includes practicals which many online courses don’t, and I feel that makes the students more prepared once they graduate. FIT CHICKS Academy also includes nutrition and business sections which is a huge bonus. I wanted to expand my knowledge about nutrition while also becoming certified in fitness (personal training) and this course allowed me to do that, whereas many other courses focus solely on personal training.
My favourite part of the FNE program was the practicals. I loved teaching fitness classes and getting real life experience of coaching before I graduated, better preparing me for my future business. For anyone considering the program I would “DO IT!! It is totally worth the time and money. I have learned so much and  expanded my knowledge more than I thought I could. This course has given me the tools I need to succeed at my own business and is continuing to provide me the support if I need it. There are awesome ladies running this program! They are so helpful and actually care and take the time to really answer our questions and make sure we are understanding everything.

My name is Antoinette but everyone calls me Tonie. I graduated FNE Sept. 2018 and I currently work as an early childhood educator. I’m building my own business as a fitness and wellness coach to help and inspire other women to achieve there goals, specifically if they have experienced or dealt with anxiety and/or depression. I do have a bachelors degree in psychology and family and social relations, as well as social work and of course my early childhood education diploma.
I chose to get certified to help as many women as possible attain the life they aspire mentally and physically when dealing with mental health.
The Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program is BEST PROGRAM EVER. Laura & Amanda want you to succeed and that you will, once you follow the steps given. There is also a lot of support that they’re really is no room for failure.
Even if your not even looking to do a career change THIS program is amazing in teaching you so much about your body in terms of working out and nutrition as well as it does teach you ways that you can use this to make additional income.

My name is Starla and I recently graduated in October 2018. I’m a stay at home mom and have just launched Our Wellness Deployed, which is a health and wellness business that focuses on creating healthy home habits and putting them into action. Being a military family I wanted something I could do no matter where we lived. As someone who enjoys being active, organizing and being creative in the kitchen the FNE program seemed like the perfect fit.
I chose the Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program because the fact that the program provides a well organized and detailed course load was appealing to me. I appreciated the business portion of the course as well as the wellness. The CanFitPro accreditation showed me that the course was valuable and recognized.
Since taking the program My habits have changed and in turn so has my families, overall we are healthier and happier. I am about to launch a fitness program for families!
It’s worth the money as the information you learn is not something you can come across for free on blogs or websites. The teachers are accessible and the FNE community is very supportive. You are not just purchasing a course you are gaining a wonderful community!

Starla Klinger @ourwellnessdeployed 

I’m Jessica and as a mom of two and one being a newer little person I appreciate time with them and time for myself. As a yoga teacher, early childhood educator and a social service worker, I love supporting all people of various sizes in all areas of their lives.
And yup I might have been crazy to take this Fitness and Nutrition expert program with a 3 year old and a newborn, but it has been a blessing. Not only did it motivate me to get up and exercising to shed baby pounds but it allowed me to take a look at my eating habits, how to self-care and inspired me on how to start my own business.
I saw the posting on Facebook and checked it out and everything that was being offered spoke to me and I told my husband I had to do this program- not only for me but to work with other moms who need quick exercises and motivation to feel healthier, happier and sexier!

Jessica Tucker

I joined the Fitness & Nutrition Expert program because I was looking for a change in my life and my career. I just had my second baby and felt more disconnected from my body, my mind and my community than ever. I had all these new amazing but overwhelming things happening and lost myself for a little bit. My fitness routine was what brought me back to me. From there, I realized that I could build a business through fitness and nutrition to bring moms together, build connections and friendships and help them love their “new” bodies, as well as work around my kids’ schedules and allow me to spend more time at home with them.
I chose the Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program because the  course is really well rounded. I had NO fitness experience before this and wanted to make sure the program I took gave me a lot of practice and knowledge. Those weekend courses just didn’t cut it! I like the videos and the format the program was delivered in. It was easy to navigate and easy to follow. The videos helped me a lot as I’m very visual.
I’m WAY more confident than I was before starting this program. The thought of getting up in front of people to teach a class terrified me! I didn’t think I’d get to that point – but now that i’m here, its great! I feel empowered and though my classes are small, I know i’m making a big impact on the women that are there!
To anyone considering the program I would say “Do it! Even if you don’t plan to teach professionally, the skills you learn are life changing. And I’m positive you will use them in your work life at some point too!”
This program has taught me more than I ever imagined – and my business is still in the early stages, but doing great! I’m so grateful for this course, the teachers and the ladies in the course! Its been a great experience.

My name is Ann, after spending the first 15 years of my adult life being morbidly obese, I made the very difficult decision to have RNY surgery. I have since lost 130lbs and am obsessed with being active. I absolutely LOVE IT. I chose to take the Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program  to help other women take control of their lives! I am enjoying the course immensely and can’t wait to start my journey!

Hey I’m Amanda. I’m a busy 28 year old mom of 3 kids: 2 boys and 1 girl, and pregnant with my 4th. I also run a full time home daycare where I care for 4 other kids on top of my daughter, while my older 2 boys are in school. I was always an active/athletic person and played softball in University, but I was always overweight due to overeating and not-so-good eating. After my second was born and I tipped 230 pounds, I decided that was enough and lost 80 pounds, by myself.  This is where my passion for health and fitness has come in. I have maintained the weight loss for over 5 years now, even going through a 3rd pregnancy and am 22 months postpartum with that. I joined the FNE program so I could learn how to help others and to learn how to make a successful career out of my passion.

I’m a firm believer in setting a healthy and active example for my children and know they will hold it with them through their lives. If I can do it, I believe anyone can do it!

Amanda Knott

Taking Fit Chicks Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program was one of the best decisions I have made.  When I initially started the program, I actually thought I wanted to work with people that wanted to do Macro based nutrition programs, I am working on software to support this process.  I was taking this course to fill in some “blanks”.  However, the program itself caused me to do some soul searching and I discovered that what I really enjoy about the entire aspect of the Macro’s coaching was working with people that have over 100 pounds to lose.  I enjoy the process of helping people build a system that works for them.

I have a degree in psychology as well as in software engineering, so this program helped me realize it was the wellness aspect of coaching that I really shine at, and that is where I should focus my energies.  So, with that said, I am actually building out two separate businesses. 

Right now, I am focusing on ONEderland Wellness. has a focus of helping primarily women that have 100 or more pounds to lose.  The processes I help women implement, are actually modifications of the processes that I implemented to lose over 100 pounds at 43 years old after being sedentary my entire life and living a life buried under the hardships of obesity for the majority of those years from childhood through adulthood.  The primary goal of ONEderland Wellness is to help people start and travel through their journey to healthy.  It’s an amazing journey filled with non-scale victories then lead to a healthy active life!

In August of 2017 I was able to launch my fitness company Golden Sneaker. I enrolled in one of the fitness schools to pursue my dream
career in fitness but all I received was a book that I needed to finish and take test in order to become a group fitness instructor and
personal trainer. I was very disappointed and for 6 months I didn’t even finish the first chapter. I will always owe this to my friend
Dougmary, who is also my business partner, for introducing me to FIT CHICKS.

This course has changed my life. I ABSOLUTELY love this program, and all the information its spreading all around the world. Thank you so much ladies. I feel so grateful to be part of this beautiful community.


I just want to say what an amazing journey I’ve been on with these FIT CHICKS! At times I thought I’d never get through all the Fitness Nutrition Expert information, because, you know, LIFE! But with so much support not only from Laura, Amanda,  and Sarah and everyone else on the team, I finally got there and found out a lot about myself along the way. I discovered passions that I never knew existed! A huge shout out for everyone on the Facebook page too, as everyone was going through the same process but the experience was totally unique for each and every person. We kept each other buoyant and supported every step of the way, celebrated successes and commiserated struggles.

I signed up for the course because I was volunteering for a fitness team, raising money for art therapy for local kids and I’m always interested in nutrition as my daughter has various food allergies. However, because of all the information being thrown at me on this course, it has opened a Pandora’s box and tapped into some fabulous ideas that I hope to pursue. I want to motivate women to be their better selves through fitness, foodiness and fierceness at my Bermuda Triangle Retreats! The only limits (I have learned on this course) are my own and I now have the tools to turn this dream into a reality. There is so much information available that I will be revisiting and delve deeper into the course work. I would totally recommend ANYONE taking this course who has an ounce of interest in fitness and nutrition, you will surprise yourself with what you discover on your journey.  Thank you again chicks, you ROCK!


The Fitness and Nutrition Expert program was super informative and an overall confidence booster! I first found out about the program when I started as a bootcamp instructor for FIT CHICKS. As a previously certified fitness instructor in both group fitness and Zumba, this program has helped me further my training in a more holistic approach to healthy living. I am now much more confident, not only teaching my group fitness classes, but in being able to help my clients in nutrition and wellness aspects as well.

The online classes worked well with my busy and varied schedule. If I happened to need to miss a class, I was able to catch up easily from the recording. They are also taught in a way that is very understandable and supportive. The community that is built is absolutely amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Since I was a child, I like to be active. Dancing, swimming, running are being my favorite things to do. I like to be in movement, which helps me to feel good; no matter if training with weights, walking on the treadmill, or a hot yoga class.  The mind-body connection that you reach when you do a physical activity, it is something that I can’t describe – it is absolutely amazing. However, it wasn’t always like this. When my life became complicated and challenging during my early 20’s, I found myself on an unhealthy path, eating poorly and treating my body badly. After reaching a breaking point in my 30’s, I made the decision to take control and find the happy, confident life I was meant to live. I rediscovered my love for fitness and I decided to enroll in this wonderful program with FIT CHICKS Academy.

This program has been changed my live, it is not only because I love fitness but also because I discovered that I love to teach to other chicks. I want to show people that it is possible to eat healthy and delicious. I also want to demonstrate that exercises are not only for bodybuilders or Instagram models – it is possible to get the body of your dreams! Juts make that wish in a reality, no excuses. My philosophy is don’t tell people what to eat or what exercises do, teach them why!


By becoming a Certified Fitness and Nutrition Expert I have gained the confidence I needed to start my career in Personal Training. I love that it covered all aspects of the industry, including fitness, nutrition, wellness and business
skills as well, which are so important when we are launching a new business. I am now confidently putting together business plans, personal training profiles, nutrition programs and utilize all the skills I have learned during the co-ops as well.

I have been also able to improve my online fitness coaching business with the extensive knowledge I obtained throughout the course. Best decision I had made was to enroll in the FNE course with Fit Chicks!

When I started the FNE certification I was already teaching classes as a Fitness Instructor and training clients one-on-one. What I found so amazing about the FNE course is that it is not only for someone who wants to start to their career but for a seasoned fitness professional who wants to increase their knowledge base as well as start their own business.

This course was way more extensive than past certifications I have taken, lead from the perspective of a heart-centred fitness professional (my jam!) and was taught to all levels while still teaching higher level learning.In addition, this course not only focuses on fitness and nutrition but also wellness and business. It is a full package that lays the groundwork for anyone, who has a passion for health and wellness, to start their own business or work as a fitness professional while creating the lifestyle they deserve and want!

It has opened up so much more for me than I thought. When I started I thought I would be furthering my education into nutrition but I received so much more. It changed the way I teach classes in an amazing ways!

My fitness classes are full of pumped participants, smiling, sweating and encouraging each other on; and better yet, coming back and asking for more. I have learned how to connect more with people, not only in class, but in life; deepening one of my core values of “meeting people where they are at.”

It also inspired me to take my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and start exploring opening my own health and wellness centre.So, I suppose the question is not how it was helpful in starting my business and career but how it helped me evolved into a better trainer and person as well as open my heart and bust through the fear to starting my own brick and mortar facility!

FIT CHICKS Academy has helped to facilitate my passion for fitness and nutrition into something I can make a career of! Having little experience in the fitness and nutrition industry other than self taught knowledge, over the 12 week period of lectures, assignments, quizzes and co-ops, I slowly began to see myself moulding my craft and becoming confident in myself as a fitness professional. Head chicks Laura and Amanda have provided me with valuable knowledge that goes beyond that of the fitness and nutrition world. They have supplied me with life skills and lessons as well as on-going hands-on support that no other fitness programs provide. I cannot wait to see what this industry has in store for me and I am so grateful I chose FIT CHICKS Academy as my starting point. Thank you Chicks!

I signed up for the FNE Certification at first as it worked perfectly with my family’s busy schedule. I am very passionate about health and fitness and I knew I wanted my next chapter to consist of spreading that love onto others. The course prepared me with the confidence and all of the tools to be ready to start my new career immediately upon graduating. The course is all online which gave me the flexibility to complete my course workload while the kids were in bed or away at school – alleviating the complications of taking time away from my family. I cannot thank Laura and Amanda enough as they have responded to every question I have ever had throughout the course, and even beyond. They are always very informative and responsive to my needs. They have been such a great support system throughout my journey. With the Fit Chicks FNE course I had a great Platform to start with and get to wake up everyday and spread my passion through my own business Ybe.Nourish.Train, providing small group bootcamps, Personal Training and Nutrition Guidance. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to start their own business, maybe just getting into health and fitness, or to help grow themselves internally or externally.

I Loved the FNE Program! The instructors were full of spirit and knowledge, and the content was great. I had no idea how much I would learn and how involved the program would be. The live online lectures were informative, but I loved that I could view them in my own time if the schedule didn’t work for me. There are few people and events that are instrumental in forming your life path, and I think this course is one of those for me. This course has given me the courage, knowledge and experience to teach my own bootcamp classes and start my own fitness business. I can’t wait to share what I have learned, and help women be FIERCE!!!

The FIT CHICKS Fitness and Nutrition Expert program was a rewarding experience. The instructors were very informative and knowledgeable. Their years of experience and education is really clear to see. They are always available to help with any questions you have and are very supportive. The course ran at a good pace, and it was really helpful to be able to watch the classes at your own pace. I could fit all the classes and assignments in to my own schedule and didn’t have to worry about falling behind. I highly recommend this course!

Jenny M., Winnipeg, MB

One of the best decisions I’ve made about looking into a new career path was taking the Fit Chicks Fitness Nutrition Expert Program. They made this program fully packed of information but also made it trouble-free so that I was still able to do my full time job. I looked forward to our evening classes and they were always there to answer any questions in a fast manner. They helped me clarify that I made the right decision!

Alysha F., Toronto, ON

This program has been life changing in so many levels. I remember that 7 months ago I was watching food documentaries (as usual) and I got so mad that people don’t know about what is going on in the food industry and I knew I had to do something about it but I didn’t have a authority to tell anything to people, so I said to myself, ok I will study and earn the authority.

I started looking on internet for some courses, I checked lot of them and asked for some recommendations to a friend who is Holistic Nutritionist and lives in Canada. She sent me the FNE program link and told me ”This program looks like you”. Check it out! One week later I was sitting in front on my laptop waiting for my 1st class like it was my 1st day in school ever! So excited! I was hesitant about learning online because I had never done it before but with the FNE program I couldn’t wait for my next class, I was highly motivated and getting my assignments done.

My favorite part of the program was the Fitness Module because I didn’t know anything about that topic and I learned so much I can’t even believe it. When I applied the theory in my co-ops and practicals I was blown away about how good was the program and all the transitions. I could listen to my teachers in my head while I was teaching and everything made even more sense. Incredible!

I quit my job, launched my business and I’m having my schedule full with Nutrition workshops around town, I’m getting ready for my Fitness program for spring and summer, I recently also took Food styling classes as I want to keep developing recipes for my social media followers and clients. Best moment of my life thanks to my Chicks!

The FNE program literally was the key to my dream job! I put it out there in the universe, accepted that it would take work and time (as most meaningful things do), but once I dug in, it was work that truly interested me: learning more about my body, how to move it to feel stronger, how to better nourish myself to improve my mental health as well feel physically fit, etc… The fact that this course has 4 modules (Fitness, Nutrition,Wellness and Business) hits on all the key factors to help anyone with a passion for teaching fitness, personal training, or even running food prep classes, starting a food blog, or whatever! It’s no weekend crash course – you’re signing up to learn things that will stay with you for life. The FNE program provides you with so much useful info, and then the sky is the limit as to how you want to apply it your life and business! I love that they give you the tools and then you lend your own creativity to give real meaning to your passion. That’s what sets this program apart!

FNE was an amazing Motivating program! It had been a long time since I had been in school but this program was so full of so much exciting new interesting information ,it keep me on my toes and engulfed in it. At first I felt a bit unsure on my direction but as Laura & Amanda say trust the process and the journey, enjoy each module it will become clear, one step at a time.
My classes have come far, from offering free classes while in school FNE, to having 10 to 12 ladies on a weekly basis year round indoor and outdoor for 6 to 12 wk sessions, my prices have progressively moved up!
Christy, ON
What I liked most about the FNE program and part of what drew me to it was the fact that it is all encompassing. You learn the fitness, nutrition and wellness components, but you also learn the business component as well. And for me it was the personal stories from Laura and Amanda that I found most fascinating. The obstacles they encountered, their successes and failures and advice that they are able to give as a result of their experience was so valuable. It was during one of the business lessons when Laura described how her partnership with Amanda started out with a handshake and a promise to always put their friendship first. How they left their day jobs to follow their dreams. That feeling of freedom they must have had overwhelmed me and that’s when my mind shifted from thinking I’ll just work for someone else to I will work for myself. Succeed or fail, I decided to go for it!
If this is your passion and what you truly want, then go for it. Don’t worry if you don’t know exactly how you will use it or what you will do. I had no idea. I figured it out along the way and you will too. The FNE program and member group offers so much support you won’t have to figure it out alone. Find your people. People who you connect with and give you energy. Take that energy and give it all back to them (and maybe a little more). Use your instincts. Don’t take on a client if you don’t feel good about it or teach a class that’s maybe popular but that isn’t you. Over time it will show.Be authentic. Take on the clients that you want to take on and teach the type of classes that speak to you. Teach what you love. I’m doing what I truly love to do and what I believe I should be doing. I think it shows.

I decided to take the FNE program because I wanted to embark on a new career path that involved helping women like me, to change their
mindset about themselves, nutrition and fitness. I want women to embrace these changes as a lifestyle change.
I am part of the graduating class of March 2018 and I feel that this program has been such an amazing ride for me. I have learned so much
professionally and personally. I feel that I grew so much as a person, and I am ready to impart the knowledge that I have learned to women
who are struggling and are tired of being on the same roller coaster of the dieting world.
I plan to start my own wellness business, that is geared towards helping women shift their mindset towards a healthier lifestyle change
and turn away from their bad habits; finding positive, sustainable ones.
Claudia, FNE grad and Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert Student

I found these two amazing women in FIT CHICKS and I found them through doing a retreat. . There was all the physical activity that you were expecting, and then we sat down for the nutrition portion, and I was blown away, because here were women who were talking to me, and they shared the same food philosophy that I had finally adopted.

It was about eating real whole foods, the fat, the proper carbs, the protein and how they all work together. It just really solidified my food philosophy, and that’s why I fell in love with this company. I decided, because I do love to share my knowledge and it’s an outlet for me, I decided that I really wanted to take this Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert certficiation, especially tied it with all the struggles I’ve had since I’ve been a teenager, a girl growing up in this diet world and everything was fat free and low fat.

I was also addicted to sugar at the same time. This was this multi-year transition for me. I thought this is exactly what I want and what I want to learn more of. I think the biggest standout for me about this certification was yes, they talked about the same food philosophies I had, they talked about how to combine real foods. But they went so far beyond the weight loss piece of it, and the diet piece of it.

The  program goes into how to heal your body and from diabetics to high blood pressure, how to work with these foods to keep your body in the best running condition for health. Because ultimately, that is the most important part, is how healthy our insides are is what’s going to keep us going and keep us moving and doing all of the things that we want to do. 

I still have my day job, but what it’s allowed me to do is share this knowledge, which I love to do. I love to teach. I started doing Lunch and Learns through work, and we’re gearing up for eight weeks into summer as well. Giving me that platform because now I have this certification that backs me, and we have a joint health and safety at my work. Having this certification and reaching out to them and them reaching out me asking me, saying, “I know you’re certified and you have this piece of paper that really means something, especially from a course that really goes into the in-depth knowledge.”

Because sitting there at that table and then asking me, what is it that you can bring to these Lunch and Learns, and they had their own thoughts, and they asked me. I think my favorite question was, what do you think of the Canadian Food Guide? For all of you new to the program, I’m going to let you answer that question on your own. It was a really standout moment for me, and I want to thank these amazing women who’ve put together this program.

If anybody’s considering the program, the one thing I would say is, is make sure it fits your food philosophy. If you’re looking for something where you can eat real food, if you’re looking for something that is going to teach you how to heal your body by eating, and learning how things contribute and support all through the foods you eat, to give yourself and others maximum health, this is the absolute program for you.
