The ULTIMATE Coaching Plan!
The ULTIMATE Plan includes:
Joining PLT shortly after its inception alongside founder & CEO Paul Leonard, I found my professional home, sharing his vision and passion for enhancing the lives of men and women through a balanced and sustainable approach.
My personal journey, marked by overcoming a lifelong struggle with yo-yo dieting and navigating the complexities of weight management during menopause, imbues my coaching style with a deep sense of empathy. Having discovered fitness later in life, I transitioned from a dedicated CrossFit enthusiast and competitor to someone who embraces the holistic benefits of strength training, yoga, and walking.
With a coaching experience spanning over a thousand clients, predominantly women, I've worked with individuals from diverse backgrounds and athletic levels. Whether guiding everyday exercisers, women venturing into strength training, or supporting nationally ranked competitors and endurance athletes, each coaching plan is uniquely tailored—crafted like a fingerprint with PLT Foundations at its core.
My personal commitment to health and wellness is intricately tied to my dedication to helping others achieve their goals. When not immersed in coaching or pursuing my own fitness objectives, you'll likely find me unwinding on a beach with a good book and my favorite music, savoring moments of relaxation and personal rejuvenation.
Driven by a genuine dedication to the overall health & well-being of each individual, my journey led me to PLT. I quickly learned that their priorities of health & well-being matched perfectly with my core values as an RD. It was the perfect match.
Drawing from a background in competitive cheer and gymnastics, I've fostered a lifelong love for movement, with strength training evolving into a profound passion. It is deeply a part of who I am. As a seasoned educator and encourager, my coaching philosophy emphasizes the synergy of education, empathy, and encouragement to empower individuals on their wellness journey.
My commitment to health isn't just professional; it's deeply personal. I've been part of transformative experiences, guiding hundreds of women towards healthier relationships with food and their bodies, leading to the empowering concept of ‘food freedom.’
I was drawn to coach for PLT Nutrition because of their unique flexible approach as my own experiences in the past with dieting had always been about restriction.
My love of all things Nutrition and Fitness came to me later in life. My own health journey began with the birth of my daughter, after I developed gestational diabetes. Having never thought about my weight or health prior to that time, I embarked on a path of learning. I began with walking, which lead to running a few marathons, and then moving into Crossfit both competing and leading classes. Strength training is one of the best things we can do to show our bodies love. Seeing what our bodies are capable of is an amazing feeling. As a gym owner, I work with men and women in all stages of fitness and health. I love seeing them grow to love their bodies.
Being a post menopausal woman myself, I understand the frustrations that can come in this season of life. But I know that it is not the end for us. In fact, it can be quite the opposite. A whole new, wonderful chapter.
As a Nationally ranked Olympic Weightlifter, I bring a great understanding of the grit and determination required to achieve ambitious goals. My coaching philosophy is centered around guiding each client not only to success but to surpass their own expectations.
In our journey together, I will take a personalized approach by delving deep into your unique needs. Through a thorough understanding of your aspirations, I will craft and apply specific nutrition protocols tailored to fuel progress and foster optimal well-being.
Whether it's pursuing physique goals, competition objectives, managing weight, or navigating the complexities of menopause, our initial focus is on building a solid foundation to support your distinct journey.
My passion for coaching and transforming lives is rooted in my own triumph over adversity. During the early stages of my Olympic Weightlifting career, I faced the challenges of transverse myelitis, a neurological disorder resulting in temporary paralysis due to spinal cord inflammation. With unwavering determination and a meticulously designed nutrition plan to support my healing body, I not only made a full recovery but qualified for and made my inaugural appearance on the National platform just one year later.
In my personal life, my cherished moments are spent with the loves of my life - my husband, my dog, my gym, the mountains, and my family. These personal connections fuel my dedication to helping others achieve their best selves through the transformative power of nutrition and unwavering support.
I am Paul Leonard, Founder & CEO of PLT Nutrition.
