You're carrying unwanted weight, stubborn belly fat and your clothes have been fitting tighter. You have low energy, your hormones are off and you have low to no sex drive, which is affecting intimacy in your relationship. You've got a busy career, family and feel like you don't have time for yourself. You don't know what to do about it and it's overwhelming. You just want to feel better and look better.

To top it off, the world has changed drastically in the last few months. Your work and family life have been turned upside down with new schedules and routines. Like most people, you've probably gained some weight and fallen off your exercise routine. You're even been feeling a little depressed and anxious about the current situation.

You've tried diets and other exercise programs with no long-lasting success. You're thinking Will this work for me? What's really going on?

After working with over 300 men and women, I realized what they struggled with most was their toxic and limiting beliefs about themselves, their personal relationships, with food and exercise that was keeping them stuck and miserable. they were looking for something deeper beyond weight loss. This is the #1 reason why people fail. Weight loss and true transformation starts in your mind and heart.

First, you have to develop a resilient mindset to help you through the journey and to achieve long lasting change. You have to be able to heal, forgive and keep going without judging yourself, having guilt about the past or being controlled by other people and circumstances. Willpower won't help you do that.

Second, you have to identify bad behaviors and wrong mindsets that are sabotaging your progress and keeping you stuck. Then, work on developing healthy ones.

Third, you must have a big WHY? It's not enough to want to lose weight. You have to have a strong burning desire. What is it costing you if you don't do it? What will you gain from doing it? Who else and what else is it affecting in your life? This will be the thing that guarantees you will get to your goal. It has to be heart centered.

Research has shown that 50% of people who are successful with their long-term weight loss had a coach or a mentor that they learned from... Transformation can't happen in isolation. You must have someone who understands you, your lifestyle, and struggles. Someone who will guide you step by step, challenge you and hold you accountable, especially when times are tough.

In my "Invigorate Wellness Program" I will help you get extreme clarity on your outcome and help you take the right action to get the results you want: to feel better about yourself, your body, increase your energy, decrease stubborn belly fat, balance your hormones, increased confidence and self esteem, eat healthier, have a faster metabolism, a slimmer toned body, eliminate stress, a strong immune system, allow you to eat your favorite foods without depriving yourself, create a healthier lifestyle, and have better intimacy.

    Courtney is so energetic and enthusiastic and injects that right into her nutrition and wellness coaching. I worked with her over the phone as I live in DC once a week and she gave me the right tools to lose weight and look fabulous for my wedding. She did this even though my lifestyle and work life have caused me to just continuously gain lbs. I've been discouraged with everything until I started working with her and seeing real results. Her coaching isn't just about losing weight or eating right, it's about living a better life that gives you more energy and awareness. Over the time we worked together, I became a morning exerciser and I have NEVER been able to do that. This is just one example of how she helped me turn my entire life around. Anyone with a phone can work with her and I highly recommend it.

    Courtney has inspired me to stay healthy and fit in our training sessions. She is more than just a personal trainer, she is a motivator and is always so positive. I always look forward to our sessions and leave feeling like I've had so much more than a great workout!!!

    I have always worked out pretty consistently and my eating habits have been healthy. But I have not been able to lose my extra weight. Then I started meeting with Courtney. She helped me raise my expectations for myself. My goal was to lose 20 pounds over a one year period. It's been almost 6 months, I have lost 15 pounds, and I feel healthier than I have in years. Courtney goes above and beyond, and I feel lucky to have her in my life.

    My job requires extensive travel and eating out. In 2009, I started running to get in shape, but it wasn't helping with weight loss. I was intimidated by the gym and decided to try a personal trainer. Luckily, I met Courtney. I like that Courtney listens to my needs, is encouraging and motivating without yelling, takes the whole body into consideration, and tailors our sessions to what is happening with my body on a particular day. She's flexible in her training and caters to the individual and their goals. Courtney also helped me choose healthy eating options when I was required to eat out for work. Over the years, I've felt healthier, maintained a healthy weight, and have generally felt better physically and mentally. In addition, Courtney has helped me stay strong through 40 weeks of pregnancy. My family and friends are surprised that I'm still working out this late in my pregnancy, but I trust Courtney to only do exercises that are safe for me and my pregnant body. I've felt strong throughout and I believe working out with Courtney has contributed to my healthy pregnancy and, hopefully, to an easier labor and delivery. Basically, Courtney is able to work well with people in all stages of life who are motivated to be healthy.
