Shawna has never been pushy or high pressure. She simply leads by example and shares her knowledge, which is extensive in fitness, nutrition and in the struggles that many of us have when it comes to losing weight, being fit and being the best version of ourselves.
After some time working out and an ongoing struggle to lose 20 lbs that had crept up on me as I aged, I reached out to Shawna. She had consistently sent the message that just because middle age is creeping up, the scale doesn’t need to. It was contrary to what I had been told that I should just give up and accept the fact that I would be frumpy and overweight through my later years. I wasn’t even fifty yet and I was hobbling every morning from inflammation in my Achilles’ tendons. I thought, “this is not how it has to be! I’m too young to be so decrepit”! And Shawna was living proof of that.
She is around my age but fit, strong and healthy. I wanted what she had and what many of her clients had achieved. Through one of her challenges, Shawna was there for me guiding me to become accountable and take charge of my health. Again, she was never pushy or high pressure, never “over indulgent” when I was struggling or having a hard time. Simply present with a “you are not alone, how can I help, I am here for you” attitude that I have come to love about her. With her guidance I have reached my goals, had some setbacks and come back stronger because of her never ending support.
I have become a permanent fixture coaching with Shawna. I hope she never stops doing what she does. The lives she has helped change for the better are many and immeasurable. She has not only empowered me but also indirectly, my family. My children have a happier, healthier mom and my husband has a wife who feels young and vibrant at the age of fifty! Thank you Shawna! You truly are one in a million!
