February is the month when everywhere you look, you see an abundance of roses and hearts 😃
Sadly, it’s also the month when most New Year resolutions begin to fall off the radar screen—especially the ones to do with getting healthier! Seemingly reasonable excuses start to pile up, and before long, we’ve given up on those well-meaning goals.
So, I thought this was the best month, in our year-long #YourWorkMatters campaign, to highlight all the fantastic work being done by women in the health industry.
These women keep us fighting fit to achieve our goals, create opportunities, meet our challenges, and live long enough to enjoy the fruits of our efforts!
Talk about work that matters, right?
Please do give them a hand and celebrate their work.
And if you happen to be working in the health and fitness industry too, please do share your story in the comments section and tell us why your work matters to you!
Every day, I talk to inspiring, intelligent, go-getter women who are successful in so many areas of their lives, but they don’t feel good in their bodies. And it keeps them from showing up in their career and life in a bigger way. They feel like they’ve lost touch with the vibrant, powerful woman inside of them. They know it’s affecting their ability to have, be, and do all that they’re meant for in life. I help them find that powerhouse woman again, so they have the energy and confidence to be more present in their lives – whatever that means to them. —Lara Dalch, Health & Lifestyle Coach
I get to help an individual change their health for the better. It ripples into the rest of their life and makes everything better of them. I get to help an individual find their inner and outer strength to accomplish a physical goal that they weren’t sure they could achieve. With guidance, encouragement and a push from me, it happens. That Matters! —Rhea Black, Owner/Personal Trainer at Momentum Athletic Training
I help people maximize their physical and mental abilities and conserve these as they age by tapping into the best bio-individual diet and lifestyle for them. What I do increases my client’s lifespan and quality of life. —Emma Galland, Health, Nutrition and Fitness Coach
My work matters because I give voice to issues faced by cancer survivors, issues—like fear—that their medical teams often overlook and for which they rarely offer effective solutions. My mission is that no survivor feel she is less for having experienced cancer. I help them see that life after cancer can be full and rich, often better than in was before. —Dr. Shani Fox, Naturopathic Physician and Life Coach
My work matters because everyone should be able to work towards a pain-free and medication-free life. A recent client, female, 43 yrs old has suffered from back pain for more than a decade. I started working with her in October 2016. Last week, she told me it’d been six weeks since she’s taken her pain meds. I can’t describe how happy this made me feel. —Bitsy Earl, Personal Trainer at Crunch
As a functional nutritionist, I help people identify underlying imbalances in the body that can be causing systemic health issues. Through nutrition and lifestyle changes, my clients have the opportunity to achieve optimal wellness and to feel their absolute best again! —Brooke Erickson, Functional Nutritionist
