Wellness Professionals

I’m working on gathering a wide community of fitness, wellness and medical professionals that approach health from a non-restrictive and non-dogmatic point of view. This list is in it’s infancy. As it grows, we’ll organize it into regions and probably add more categories. I’ve done my best to screen the professionals that are listed here to ensure that they ‘fit’ our philosophy. If you contact one of them and feel like their approach doesn’t fit what I’m trying to build here, please let me know so I can check in.

None of these professionals has paid to be in this list, and I don’t make any money off of referrals or affiliate sales. Believe it or not, I’m providing this to support both my colleagues who are working toward a new health paradigm, and my readers who are looking for professionals they can trust not to lead them deeper into dysfunction and disorder. This is not a profit venture!

If you are a professional in one of these fields, or know of one that you think would be a good addition to our list, please send me your/their contact info and a brief bio at [email protected]

I’d like to give a huge shout out to Chandelle from Chicken Tender for helping me get this resource off the ground.

'There is more nutrition information available today than ever before, and it doesn't seem to help people bridge the gap between knowledge and behavior. Maybe it's time for a different strategy. Let Bonnie help you develop an approach to food that works for you.

Counseling with Bonnie is more collaboration than instruction. This is a chance to be truly heard and have your concerns and personal experiences taken into consideration. You know what you like, and what you don't. You may know where you want to go but not how to get there. My mission is to help you develop an approach to food that works for you in the real world.'

I think a person has to change their attitude and their lifestyle. That’s why I run a 24-7 online support group so people always have somewhere to turn when they need encouragement or support. As far as my approach to exercise and dieting, I am not a fan of taking extreme measures like fasted cardio or low-calorie diets. I’d rather find something that a person can adapt as a lifestyle change so they can maintain it forever. I also believe that everyone needs an individualized approach as no two people’s bodies or lifestyles alike.'

'In 2009 I finished my BA in Psychology, and shortly afterwards in 2010 I founded AFIT. Determined to bringing psychology to the world of fitness, I founded AFIT under a single idea; to teach others to move with purpose. The goal is to reshape the way clients look at exercise. Teaching them the how and why of movement. Eventually getting clients to own their workouts. Ultimately I want to train others to design and implement their own routines. Furthermore, I demand a deep level of understanding out of clients, not just a going through the motions. I want them to understand why they are exercising and what goals they are working towards. All this is done over an online coaching program. No matter where you go you take fitness with you. Each program is tailored to the individual and their current stage. Whether you are making your first run at fitness or looking to gain more endurance to catch some waves, we meet you where you are at. Isn't it time you take charge of your fitness'?

'My non-restrictive approach is based on combining TA, CBT, food education, '' crowding-in the good stuff, and also taking a deep look into your life to see

what may be driving some of your non-supportive behaviors. I find that once I say to clients “eat what you like” & crowd in some great energy-based food, they suddenly have very little to rebel against. My work is very much solution-focused with real practical tools to solve issues.

Kyra AKA The Get In Shape Girl

'I decided to lose weight because I wasn’t happy with how I looked. Tons of cardio and calorie counting later, I lost 20 pounds. I became an active runner and yogi and then I found dumbbells and clean eating. My body transformed and I fell in love.

Fitness became my passion and when I was laid off from my job in corporate America, I became a trainer. I competed in a few bikini competitions to give me something to do. Well, these were SO not my thing. Over the training periods of these the restriction on food got the best of me and I found myself with some disordered eating habits that I knew were not right and not me!

I did a lot of reading, meditating, blogging and just talking to other women '' during this time to get it all worked out. It’s amazing how many women go '' through this daily, and it’s saddens me yet motivates me to help educate and '' inspire women to end the madness!

Since then I began Crossfit where I could truly compete for performance and eat to perform better. During this time I launched an online personal training site at thegetinshapegirl.com. Most of my clients are young professional females or new moms. I utilize HIIT, circuit training and whatever else they enjoy as my training methods to help them burn fat and build muscle.

I also do meal planning. I gather a ton of info from the clients to find out their BMR, goals, likes/dislikes, dietary needs and a typical food journal to create their meal plan. They have to enjoy what they’re eating and eat plenty of healthy foods (hello, avocados and grass-fed beef!) to keep cravings at bay.

Everything I do is online. My website has videos, a forum, and recipes. Depending in which level you choose I check in with clients via email weekly or bi-weekly with progress pics and check-ins monthly. Some of my clients and I speak monthly 1:1; otherwise I do a weekly call for all clients to have their questions answered.'

I constantly see them '' asking for advice online, confused and frustrated with their new bodies, and I love to help them embrace their new bodies in a non-dogmatic way! My areas of special interest are Prenatal and Postpartum Exercise Design, and Non-diet Weight Management and Maternal and Infant Nutrition.”

“As someone who was terrified of weight training (my specialty and passion), I understand where many come from when it comes to first-time gym goers. I '' practice simple, basic nutritional practices with my clients that promote long and sustained progress. Combined with intelligent programming and loads of compassion and understanding, many of my clients see huge improvements in health and self-confidence. Often there is a complete shift in their perspective on fitness and nutrition.”
