Our Coaches

Your partners in supporting lasting change.

Our team of qualifed coaches will take care of you

Our team of qualified coaches help people achieve their goals by acknowledging that physical health is deeply intertwined with every facet of a person’s life: relationships, mindset, mental health, and more.

We do much more than just give our clients a diet plan. Our approach is personalized and focuses on things like:

Life skills

food shopping and meal prep; communication with family about health priorities; time-management; mindfulness and self-awareness

Habits, systems, and behaviors

Sleep or bedtime routines; stress-management practices; weekly or daily meal prep routines.

Beliefs

Dealing with body image issues; breaking down the “good food” versus “bad food” dichotomy; addressing negative associations with exercise or “dieting”; digging up meaningful reasons to change.

Education

An understanding of why some things work for you and some things don’t, where to get the foods/supplements/tools we recommend, how to succeed on your own for sustained changes and lifelong health.

Sabrina Pelkey

Sabrina's passion for nutrition began when she started to recognize that food is truly fuel and that when you start to nourish yourself with real food in the right amounts for you, it can have an impact on all areas of life. What started as a journey to lose some weight and get in shape for aesthetic purposes has turned into a lifestyle and passion that has changed her path in life. The more she learned, the more she wanted to learn and share with others. In June of 2018 Sabrina started bringing others along on her nutrition journey and has been successfully helping people reach their goals in her free time ever since. In June of 2020 her 16 year career working for an airline was cut short due to the pandemic. Her life and schedule completely changed and Sabrina saw it as the perfect opportunity to shake it up a little more and further pursue her growing passion. Sabrina began her formal education in nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in March, 2021. She is currently working towards a diploma in Natural Nutrition and obtaining the title of Registered Holistic Nutritionist. Sabrina's customer service background combined with her love of fitness and nutrition make her a great coach that truly cares. Helping people reach their goals, and increase their energy and confidence is what truly lights her up!
