About Susana and Timeless Fitness
Hi. My name is Susana. I am a certified health coach with a holistic approach to fitness, nutrition and overall wellness helping busy professional women and stay-at-home moms achieve their health objectives. I encourage women of ANY age to exercise and eat clean and assist and coach clients in attaining a sustainable weight, build strong muscles, reduce sugar or high sodium food cravings, increase nergy and manage stress. I also offer tips, delicious and nutrient rich food recipes, advice and coaching to women who are thinking about entering a fitness or bikini competition or running a 5k, 10k, 1/2 marathon.
With many years’ experience in the corporate world (most recently having over 10 years under my belt as a business development officer in a pediatric hospital and research institute, and having battled my own demons with unhealthy eating and unhealthy an unhealthy view of what ‘fit’ looks like, I understand first-hand the challenges of maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle while juggling a successful career and family and comparing yourself with what the media has many times shoved into our face – essentially the airbrushed or stage-ready fitness model or celebrity.
I’m now at a point in my life where I feel confident that I have something to share . I want to encourage and help others to feel as positive and motivated to be fit, healthy and happy and to looking and feeling amazing because seeing that I can help others makes me very happy. I myself feel better than I have felt in years.
I have learned how to slow down and fine-tune how to eat (and what to eat). I try to create food for my family and I that is healthier, looks good and is good for you. I also have the belief that we can take and have any food that we like to eat (including so called ‘cheat meals’) by simply substituting certain ingredients that are harmful to our bodies with healthier alternatives. My thoughts of how to feel rejuvenated and to look younger and to keep fit is simply to eat healthier and exercise, rest, meditate and make time for fun. There is NO MAGIC pill – just a healthy lifestyle and good nutrition.
I have also found how amazing one feels and can look if they are consistently moving : daily cardio and strength exercises/movements and to practice stretching and meditation in a way that grounds you when life gets busy and a little turbulent.
I feel confident that I can now, more than ever before, share some insight, coach and mentor – and even if I only resonate with a few, I know that I am contributing in a positive way and creating a tiny ripple effect.
Speaking of ‘ripple effect’, I am a graduate of The Institute of Integrative Nutrition who has created a massive ripple effect in mentoring health coaches throughout North America and is playing a crucial role in improving health and happiness. I received my certification in 2015. To learn more about IIN, check out the website at http://www.integrativenutrition.com.
I am also a blogger, a fitness & wellness motivational speaker, published author and fitness model. I am a life-long athlete and running afficionado having run my 1st half marathon at the age of 42. I also started competing and thriving on the bikini & fitness model stage at the age 39 yrs young. So when I say ‘timless fitness’ I truly mean that we are made to be fit for life!
I love staying active by going for walks with my family and dog, evening or weekend running, weight training, swimming, taking classes such as Zumba and cardio combat, swimming, and practicing yoga. I also enjoy pencil drawing, practicing my meditations and have most recently fell back in love with cooking and baking all things green , colourful and healthy. You may be asking yourself when and how the heck do I fit this all in. I find the time or make the time and select the activities that matter most or that I crave the most during a given time.
As a health coach and fitness & wellness motivational speaker and blogger, I am committed to helping people get back on a path to wellness and to achieve vibrant health! I take an integrative approach to wellness, with a focus on nutrition, physical activity, emotional balance, natural ways to relieve stress, and having fun! For my clients specifically, I provide customized programs to support their specific goals and concerns.
My goal is to educate, support and empower everyone I work with or who follows my blogs! I try to provide motivational tips and recipes and information that I know can work for me. No two people are alike but if you are a busy mom like me, I think you will truly appreciate and find useful in some way, shape or form the things that I know can keep us fit and happy and can rejuvenate our bodies, mind and soul – and if what works for me, does not work for you, I can help you create a wellness plan that works best for you and for your lifestyle!
I hope that you can get to a place where you no longer feel bad about the way you look or feel. I hope that you can get to a place where you can transform from tired to energized, from feeling bad to feeling good, jittery to calm, busy to quiet and unhealthy to healthy!
So enjoy (enjoy my blog too), relax, eat well, get moving and if you need my help as your health coach, please contact me today to schedule your COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION and let’s get started!
