Hi, I'm Renata, and I love to create personalized programs for women to heal emotional eating once and for all! In fact, I've always loved to do this. When I was younger, you would find that all my journals were filled with my own personal development and fitness programs. Not much has changed except that now I am a Mom, Professional Athlete and Coach. My entire life has been about finding balance as I often feel overwhelmed and out of control, especially with food.
I've been where you are! I've failed MANY times at dieting and felt defeated too!
I didn't yet know the value of focusing on my limiting beliefs around weight loss and making it sustainable by increasing my Emotional Intelligence skills. In what I term my own Revival, I ended my weight loss struggle and developed a healthier relationship with food and my body! My focus changed from weight loss to well being, and the other benefits this approach has provided to me is something I just have to share with women who feel lost at weight loss, as I once did too.
When working with fitness and body transformation clients, I witnessed a common pattern… the women who didn’t know how to process their emotions and didn’t talk to themselves kindly, had less self-assurance, were not able to start a diet, stick to it, or maintain it after they reached their goals. And this was frustrating for me, because I know what they really needed was to build their self-care program first and foremost. However, this is not the trendy or conventional weight loss route most people know or seek.
I have been immersed in the personal development & coaching field for the past 15 years. I received a BA in Communications & Psychology, and certifications in Coaching, Personal Training, Sports Nutrition, Life Coaching and Peak Performance.
Sharing the tools that I have personally used during my own transformation has helped me guide other women to deliberately create the body, and health of their dreams with JOY and EASE!
I have received wonderful feedback from my clients that my programs have milestones based on things that empower them to feel great and have nothing at all to do with dress size, the scale, looks, food or exercise! This shift from weight loss resistance, to allowing natural well being to return, is the protocol for sustainable weight loss that I help each client personalize for herself. It's all about getting back into alignment with the things that feel good to you, instead of the self-sabotage that comes with expectations of perfection.
It's what I call finding your "Sweet Spot"!
