What's better than feeling better?

Have you reached a point where you feel at war with your own body? 

If you're a woman in your 40's, 50's or even 60's, struggling with weight gain, disrupted sleep, and an emotional rollercoaster that seems never-ending, you know the frustration. The methods that used to work don’t seem to make a dent anymore. You're not alone.

Introducing Thrive Women: A Lifeline for Women Wanting to Thrive Through Midlife and Beyond 

This isn't just another health program. It's a sanctuary for women who have been sidelined by age-related changes that equate to feeling unwell and often unhappy.   It's for women  who've been feeling stuck, unsure of how to get back their mojo.  It’s for women who are doing “all the right things”, but aren’t getting results like they used to.   Thrive Women is about starting fresh; implementing the new fitness and nutrition methods that work for women, not the same old advice that doesn’t apply anymore.

Cathy, a 53-year-old embracing the ‘Wonder Woman’ ideal, felt the weight of perfection in every role of her life, from being a mother to a businesswoman, all while maintaining a flawless appearance. This pursuit left her drained and disillusioned with fitness programs that promised much but delivered little, exacerbating her exhaustion and sleep issues.

Seeking a real change, Cathy came to us skeptical but open for a different approach. We started by reconstructing her mindset, focusing on her capabilities rather than her limitations. Customized workouts began at her level, ensuring each session ended in triumph. Gradually, we introduced more challenging exercises and a simple dietary shift towards more protein.

A year into our program, Cathy's results are profound: her body fat and waistline have significantly reduced, her health markers mirror those of someone much younger, and most importantly, she has regained control and confidence. Cathy's story isn't just about physical transformation; it's about a sustainable, joyful lifestyle shift.

JUDY, 52

Judy, a decade into menopause, was struggling with increasing pant sizes despite her efforts in exercise and healthy eating. She approached me for accountability coaching, half expecting a prescription of more exercise and less food. Instead, we embarked on a journey to revitalize her fitness and nutrition approach.


Our strategy shifted her mindset positively, tailored her workouts for effectiveness, refined her diet for muscle optimization, and set achievable milestones to combat menopausal weight gain.

In just four months, Judy celebrated fitting into her pre-menopause wardrobe, displayed newfound strength and speed in her fitness pursuits, and enjoyed better sleep and significant mood improvement. To others, Judy appeared remarkably vibrant. She credits these changes to what she calls a miracle; I attribute it to our innovative approach to managing menopause
