You will improve not only your physical fitness but also your mindset. You’ll gain muscle mass, lower body fat, exercise without pain and improve your mood. You will eat better, sleep better and feel better.

There are so many fitness programs to choose from. I believe a personalized program tailored to the unique needs of your body and lifestyle will get you the best results.

Nadia will then work with you and suggest tools for you to implement to help pacify or alleviate these symptoms or imbalances. Suggestions can range from a daily 10- to 15-min personalized breath-centric yoga practice, conscious breathing, meditation, dietary recommendations through the lens of Ayurveda and more. In subsequent sessions, these suggestions may be modified based on your feedback.

Feel free to set up a 15-min complimentary call with Nadia if you are looking for ways to address symptoms such as anxiety, depression, stress or inflammation, and/or ways to help improve digestion and sleep.

Rolin Mcquade - COACH

I can’t believe that 9 years later I’m still helping people live longer, get stronger, regain/build new confidence in their abilities and bodies and develop customized strategies for every client that more importantly than anything else they can and do stick to long term. Before I found fitness (18 years ago) I was a shell of the man I am now. I had low confidence, was quiet, scrawny and weak. In a short period of time after starting my fitness and health journey that started to change, I gained the courage/ability to do the work not only in the gym but outside of it too. The lessons I learned from taking care of my body have also sharpened my mind by making me a positive, optimistic and giving person. My gift to the world is sharing my energy with everyone I meet so that even if just for a moment their day can get a little bit better!

What makes me stand out as a trainer?

There are 3 primary pieces:

1. Positive & Optimistic attitude:

When you see me I will make you smile every time. Whether it's dad jokes, silly dance moves, reminding you of how awesome you are or how far you’ve come I will find a way to get you in the right headspace to achieve your goal(s). Everyone of us is capable of achieving great things, we either need to learn how or we need someone to push us to actually do the work.

2. Sleep coaching:

We often hear the details of how important it is to get quality nutrition, manage calories, exercise daily to boost energy etc. Put differently we get the what, why, when and how for both of these things affect our day to day. However when it comes to sleep, I believe we are massively under-educated on how to assess our biggest issues to getting high quality sleep. Over the years I’ve seen a massive improvement on injury recovery, strength + muscle gains, improved mental health (including stress management), a decrease in sickness, work + gym performance and much more when we optimize a client's day to improve their sleep by the end of the day. Note: it's simpler than you’d think!

3. Simplifying habit change:

Changing long term behaviors can be difficult. One reason for this is often people try to change too much too quickly. It's always best to identify the “lowest hanging fruit” , pluck it and eat it before we go for the higher branches. When we take deliberate and smarter approaches to habit change we see those habits become part of your daily life without needing to use so much mental effort.
