What clients say about me

About a year ago I felt like I needed a kickstart in my life! Basically, for my entire adult life my weight has yoyo’ed up and down and Ive always thought “If I can just lose ten or fifteen pounds I’ll be great!” Then I would do some kind of extreme diet and lose it and guess what? It came back. Every time. Ive also been an avid trail runner for the past 5 years and I love it and it makes me feel good but does it help me shed weight? Um, not really. I had been following Marisa on social media for years and one day the ball dropped and I found myself calling Marisa up ask asking for help. I may have cried on the phone. I was an exhausted 46 year old peri-menopausal woman and a mother to four teen/young adults. I felt drained and tired all the time! My energy was tanking. I was putting on weight, my brain was foggy and I found myself regularly in tears and my clothes were tight and uncomfortable. I was not smiling when I went to get dressed. With Marisa’s incredible knowledge and expertise in nutrition, fitness and general wellbeing I felt I could trust her completely. She encouraged me to switch up my workouts and only run once a week and hike and walk a couple of other times a week. She has me on a fun strength training program! My energy has improved as well as my mood. She made nutritional changes and all of a sudden……whooosh! A bunch of weight kind of fell off. Guess what? I drink wine and eat pizza. Not all the time but it is not gone from my life. No foods are. Ive been on vacations and eaten whatever I wanted and my weight didn’t shoot up 5lbs. The muscle I’ve put on is doing it’s job. I don’t really care what the scale says anymore because I feel good in my skin, my clothes fit great and I feel strong and healthy. I’m leaner, I can see new muscle and I feel so much happier and energetic. Marisa helped me see things in a different way. I feel like the changes she has encouraged and guided me to make are everlasting and totally possible to maintain. Calling up Marisa was the best decision I ever made. It led me to feeling comfortable in my skin, more confident, less scale obsessed and now I have a desire to become even stronger. Thank you for all you have taught me, and your never ending support.
