Testimonials

“I have been on the nutrition program 2.5 years and I have lost about 78 pounds on it and one of the main reasons is the coaching I have received from Julie Anderson. Her knowledge, caring nature and patience are exemplary and the support I receive from her in the hard times makes the effort better. Even in those time that I have not made progress Julie is positive and helpful, I look forward to the help each week.”
“Julie has been the number one partner in my weight loss journey. She takes the time to not only understand my fitness and nutrition goals, but balances that against who I am as a person when offering me suggestions. I look forward to meeting with her every few weeks and working together to make adjustments that will continue to make my new fitness a lifestyle and not a moment in time. I cannot recommend her highly enough as a partner in this journey”
“As a figure skater, I was horrified when I realized I had gained 15 pounds seemingly overnight. As a nurse, I was skeptical of what a dietitian could teach me that I didn't already know. Julie completely changed the way I approached eating, personalized a meal plan, and encouraged me every step of the way. 25 pounds later I look and feel great and the monthly check in's keep me accountable to myself. Julie is the best!”
