HEY THERE, BRIDE-TO-BE! I’M EMMA-LOUISE.
And if you’re not feeling like the picture-perfect bride you dreamed you’d be (yet), I’m your wedding wingwoman.
With hashtags like #sweatingforthewedding gaining popularity….and bridal boot camps and wedding dress diets being shoved in your face every time you open a bridal magazine...it’s easy to lose sight of the love you’re celebrating and the excitement you should be feeling right now.
After spending your monthly salary on your wedding dress, of course you want to feel like it was worth it! But I’ve learned that you can get pretty drastic results without taking drastic measures...
Eating better and getting fitter does NOT have to equal hating your life or opting out of all those fun pre-wedding celebrations you’ve got lined up. And even if you feel discouraged because your weight loss has plateaued, your health goals are more achievable and attainable than you know.
I’m a Primal Health Coach, so my approach to nutrition and fitness is rooted in evidence-based biology and scientific research — not the latest fads or trends.
I’m Precision Nutrition Level I Certified, so instead of giving you some off-the-shelf meal plan, I help you understand how to eat better in a way that works for your body and becomes second nature. (No calorie-counting or food-weighing required.)
I use Neurolinguistic Programming, which is a fancy way of saying I can help you get past all those annoying self-doubts (“I’m too busy to be healthy!”) that rattle your confidence and turn you into a commitment-phobe as soon as you decide to change your habits.
As someone who was once 30 lbs heavier and couldn’t figure out why I kept putting on weight when I was eating a low-cal, low-fat diet and working out 5x a week (don’t even get me started on the hangry cravings)…
As someone who had food allergies that were making me feel sick and tired all day, every day…
And as someone who couldn’t stick to any type of 30-day healthy eating plan or detox, so help her cheese…
The problem is: One-size-fits-all nutrition and exercise plans don’t take your needs and lifestyle into consideration. And without accountability or personalized guidance, it’s almost impossible to get the results you crave.
A health coach can share cooking, nutrition and fitness hacks with you, so you don’t get bored or overwhelmed by your options.
A health coach can track and analyze your eating and workout habits, pointing out common pitfalls or obstacles that could be halting your progress, so you have confidence that the effort you put in will actually pay off.
And a health coach can remind you WHY you’re doing this when you have a bad day, so you stay motivated enough to not only get incredible results, but sustain them.
My nicknames are… Emma-Lou and Little One (I’m 5’2” when I stand up straight).
My go-to stress reliever is... Chilling with my barktastic dog, Hugo. Also: Fresh air, 90’s R&B, surrounding myself with good-vibe peeps.
My workout of choice is... A tie between Pilates, CrossFit and yoga.
I moonlight as… An air traffic controller.
I like to read… Nonfiction by day, fiction by night — on every subject under the sun.
I’m most likely to quote… Parks & Rec. And pretty much any 80’s film.
My friends would describe me as… An outgoing introvert, coffee addict, and a professional organizer in a previous life.
When no one is around, I like to… Stay in PJs all day and eat almond butter straight out of the jar while indulging my house envy on Pinterest.
I often get complimented on… My British accent!
Tell me how I can help you walk down that aisle like you own it and find your “forever” healthy lifestyle.
