About Mindy’s Coaching Style:
Mindy’s coaching style is very interactive and educational. She believes in getting to know her clients, learning their systems, and helping them reach that next level with their fitness and nutrition. Mindy uses her education, her years of successful systems from her own progress, and her knowledge of the industry to guide others step by step through the process to set up new daily habits in order to reach their goals. Ultimately she wants each client to learn their own bodies and teach them to make themselves a priority, as it is imperative they each “become a student of you!”
Focusing solely on women of all ages, competitors and fitness clients are all given individualized attention and customized plans to help them on their path to their own goals. As a team they work on changing habits such as sugar intake, hydration, daily food awareness, activity goals, and life skills for balancing wellness in a scheduled and demanding life. She believes in teaching new systems that slowly develop into an evolved, ongoing lifestyle and never eludes to anything with a fast fix or quick transformation. In fact, she encourages her clients NOT to expect fast results and teaches them to lay a solid foundation first and work slowly over time to set up new ways, which eventually produces new results.
Her general fitness guidance and bodybuilding competitor/contest prep programs are based off scientific principle and safe metabolic practices. In all circumstances she believes in feeding a body to optimal, using consistent strength training to build muscle, and finding a good balance with adequate cardio for whole-body wellness. Eating AND rest are part of her plans!
