The foods we eat can either feed disease or prevent it, fight aging or facilitate it. Everyone agrees that the importance of proper nutrition can't be overstated, especially in our fast-food world. As a result, the coaching process addresses what, when, why, and how a client eats, while ensuring that their diet not only aligns with their wellness goals, but is also sustainable.
Physical fitness is a core piece of the health and wellness puzzle, yet the health, fitness and wellness industry is inundated with one-size-fits-all solutions that all too often treat every body the same regardless of age, ability, or health. Addressing a client's unique fitness needs is vital to achieving optimal health and why it is a primary focus of the coaching process.
Tired of the constant cycle of weight loss and weight gain characterized by years of yo-yo dieting and sporadic participation in grueling fitness regimens that never seem to result in lasting results. Ready to take back your health once and for all? Shaun can help using a collaborative coaching partnership designed to assist clients in becoming a healthier, happier version of themselves.
"If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health." - Hippocrates
What is specialty fitness?
Specialty fitness is a program for populations with special needs including the young, the old, those with pain or existing injury, individuals who are currently overweight/obese or significantly out of shape, and athletes of all ages.
Many trainers and coaches don't have the education or experience to understand the unique needs of these groups and end up recommending a generic one-size-fits-all fitness program that doesn't adequately address the fact that not all bodies are the same. For example, it is not unusual for trainers to treat developing athletes like their adult counterparts without an appreciation for the differences between the two groups. And very few trainers understand the significance of diagnoses like spondylolithesis or degenerative disc disease.
Shaun's background as a physical therapist, her nutrition degree, and her personal training experience give her valuable insight into groups that are often inappropriately lumped in with the masses. Whether these special populations simply want a customized fitness program that is appropriate for their situation or wish to enhance their performance, Shaun can help find solutions that work.
