Hi I’m Angela, an Empowerment Coach and NASM Master Trainer. For over two decades, I have assisted people and organizations in the attainment of their fitness and life goals while motivating them to live a more powerful and healthier life.
Several major events in my life inspired me to start this journey. My mother’s early death from a massive stroke, my brother’s suicide after battling depression, a childhood of neglect and the discovery that I was a gifted runner in the tenth grade that later allowed me the opportunity to earn a full track scholarship, and the recognition that running, resistance training and a healthy lifestyle gave me the drive and the strength to overcome obstacles and excel in all areas of my life. I wanted to share with others the extraordinary healing and empowering benefits of physical activity, proper nutrition and a healthy mindset.
Drawing from my personal experiences, my life story allows me to connect with others on their road to healing. Now, through an integration of mental conditioning, nutrition and physical health, I inspire others to live an empowered life.
As a speaker, corporate consultant, trainer, and therapist my approach is grounded in the foundational belief that no matter how terrible the situation you are in, everything is fixable using the FIX IT METHOD.
I believe that you are stronger than you would ever think and more powerful than you could ever imagine. You have everything you need within you to accomplish any goal. You can overcome any obstacle and achieve any goals you are willing to work for.
Through guidance and support, I can help you recognize your strengths and use those strengths to create the life that you want.
