About Me:

B07I4374_EDIT_Shadow_edited.jpg

My name is Danielle and I am a Certified Personal Trainer. I am also certified in Bodybuilding, Nutrition and Plant-Based Nutrition.

 

Prior to my certifications, I had spent most of my life working out, but my diet wasn't that great; it was the typical twenty-something-year-old habits filled with fast food, alcohol, and pretty much anything I could get my hands on.

In my late twenties, I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer, IBS, SIBO, and a slew of other gastro-intestinal diseases. I couldn't understand why this was happening to ME! Sure, I had neglected my body, but many of my friends did the same, so why was I the one suffering?

Through some extensive research, I found a few peer-reviewed studies that pointed toward the correlation between high animal-product diets and the growth of cancer cells. Immediately, I switched to a primarily plant-based diet. Thankfully, after the switch, combined with a partial thyroidectomy, my cancer was removed, and hasn't returned.

Since then, I have removed almost all processed foods and drinks from my diet and have seen tremendous results. I understand it can be hard for people to make such an extreme switch, which is why I don't pressure a fully vegan diet on anyone who is not interested.

Through my nutrition and plant-based nutrition education, I have found a great balance for vegans as well as the plant-curious, in which I cater to each of my clients individually. Whether you're new to the health and fitness realm, or have had years of experience, I'm here for you! Let's get started!

How Many Calories Should I Eat?

I get this question probably more than anything (aside from "where do I get my protein?). The simple answer: it depends. The longer answer: the calories you "should be" consuming, whether your goal is muscle gain, fat loss or a combination of the two is dependent on a few factors that make up your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) which depends on your age, sex, muscle mass, weight, etc. To get a true idea of what your BMR is, you need expensive equipment to calibrate all of these factors. However, this BMR calculator is pretty accurate (within a few hundred calories) if you want an idea of where you should be at. For a more accurate BMR, schedule an in-personal training session with me, which includes InBody testing.
