Wife, mother, volunteer, friend, boss….you’re an everything-to-everyone type of woman...even if that means putting yourself on the back burner.
Spending hours in the gym just isn’t a luxury that you have time for (or interest in, if we're being honest.)
Your diet? Well, it's more about what's fast and easy to get on the table. Who has time for hours on Pinterest or slaving away in the kitchen? You're somewhere between Betty Crocker & Colonel Sanders, am I right?
The demands of day-to-day life leave you exhausted with little energy for anything besides crashing on the couch for some mindless tv and feel-good snacks.
You love your job, your kids, your spouse...just not the person staring back at you in the mirror.
You’ve tried to change things on your own.
Whatever products or plans popped up on your Facebook feed, you've given a shot. When your neighbor started selling overpriced wraps, hell, you tried those, too! You’ve cleansed, detoxed, wrapped, sipped, and restricted whatever promised the results you wanted.
And some of them worked. For a bit, anyway. But you were miserable in the process and any weight you lost, came right back when you stopped.
You’re tired of spending every last ounce of time, energy, or willpower on these short-term fixes.
You want real, lasting results. And you don't want to be miserable while you achieve them. (Is that so much to ask, really?)
The results you want are NOT the kind you’re not going to find at the other end of a monthly recurring supplement subscription.
Being able to wear anything in your closet and actually enjoying putting together an outfit for girls night?
The look in your husband's eye if you rocked a curve-hugging little number & thousand-watt smile that said, "I know I look good"?
Seeing yourself the way your husband sees you? If you actually believed him when he tells you that you're beautiful?
How much more you would enjoy family vacations if you felt confident rocking a bikini instead of a beach cover-up? Getting in the water to play with the kids instead of pretending you don't want to get in and staying on the beach, watching from afar? Doing a hike as a family instead of making it part way up and insisting they go on without you?
How much more you could get done at work if you didn’t hit that mid-afternoon crash that leaves you counting the minutes until it’s couch time?
If the weight you've struggled with for so long was GONE FOR GOOD?
These are not pipe dreams.
You can have all these things. And you do NOT have to be miserable in order to get them.
You can have that spark back in your marriage. (You know he loves you regardless, it's about how you feel.)
Energy lasting all day like you’re a kid again. (Helpful to actually keep up with the kids now.)
Confidence to wear a bikini, ask for a raise, stand your ground, and know your body is capable of doing whatever you ask it to. (Basically becoming Superwoman.)
"I have been quite impressed with the education of the program and how it has honestly helped me to refocus on my food intake and exercising. Esther has been the most committed, motivational coach that one could have. Actually, I am loving the way my clothes are fitting me now and I love the compliments that I'm getting. :-) So thanks to Esther, I'm where I want to be."
“I started working with Esther because I needed help with my nutrition. She is an excellent listener, responds to all my messages, and she always offers excellent suggestions. She is also ALWAYS positive, even when I'm not! I eat a much more healthy diet, and I feel better about myself now. You will love working with Esther!”
A few years ago a client told me that when she first met me, her first thoughts were, “what does this skinny b*tch know about my struggles?”
You may have had similar thoughts seeing my picture.
That's ok. But there’s much more to a person’s story than what meets the eye. Maybe we’ve even had some of the same experiences. I know what it’s like to put all your other responsibilities before your health because you care so much about doing a good job and making everyone happy.
I discovered my love for the gym in the early 2000’s because it allowed me to get exercise without being on a sports team (where my lack of athleticism was on display for all to see.)
It was something I could do just for me and I loved it. It’s actually a big factor in how I ended up majoring in Exercise Science at Boston University. Along with college came the typical conflicts of wanting to maintain a healthy diet while also taking advantage of the unlimited ice cream and cereal in the dining hall. I wanted to get a full night’s rest, but also wanted to go meet boys and eat late night pizza. I wanted to go to the gym but also wanted to study so I wouldn’t fail out. The net result at the end of freshman year?
About 30 extra pounds and complete confusion as to how I ended up there.
Over the post-college years, I struggled with binge eating episodes and experienced ups and downs with my weight. These often coincided with major life changes that threw me out of my routines. Each time I gained weight, I’d make a desperate attempt to lose it quickly, by restricting and eliminating foods. I tried diets like Whole30, Paleo, Intermittent Fasting, even a (very brief) raw diet. I won’t mention Master Cleanse. (That would be embarrassing.) Sound familiar? Despite all my knowledge and experience I was still grasping at straws.
I’ve come a long way from being the girl who had to keep buying new “fat pants.”
I now eat foods that are both good for me AND that I enjoy, every single day.
I know exactly how to put together meals that support my health, fuel my activity level, and leave me feeling my best.
I don’t restrict or eliminate any foods arbitrarily and I indulge in moderation.
I know that one slip up won’t do a damn thing to hurt me and I treat myself with compassion when I fall short of my expectations.
I can say with complete confidence that I have mastered the basic skills that will allow me to maintain a healthy weight for the rest of my life. That excess weight is gone for good.
This is the same success I want for you. And it’s exactly what my clients achieve:
“Esther provided the tools to make real change in my life. She provided the workouts, nutrition info, and ways to incorporate positive change in my life. All of that along with the knowledge and encouragement to make it happen.”
“Working with Esther, I've learned about balancing my expectations with my reality and prioritizing what truly matters.
Esther gives me great wisdom, she provides honest feedback, helps me to evaluate my thought patterns, and helps me create a food gameplan for what I'm going into each week.
It's like having a friend who also keeps you accountable so you'll be successful and meet your goals.
If you're looking at expenses, this is the best money you'll spend because you're investing in yourself and your own health.
There's nothing better than looking back and knowing you've accomplished what you set out to do, and Esther will help you do that!”
My mission in life is to help my clients undergo incredible mind, body, and lifestyle transformations that will have you living your healthiest, happiest, most confident life.
Without being miserable in the process.
Without gaining the weight back.
After we "meet" (virtually) to talk goals, experience, availability, and establish a baseline, I handcraft a comprehensive program just for you.
Taken into account are your likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and time and equipment constraints.
You'll have exercise descriptions, photos, and video demos to help ensure proper form.
Your easy-to-use app makes tracking your progress a breeze.
No one-size fits all programs here. We work together to come up with a nutrition plan specific to your goals, lifestyle, strengths, and challenges.
Included is meal planning, dining out, putting together balanced meals, portion-sizes, learning to listen to your body.
We can cover all that at a speed - and in an order - that makes sense for you.
You will not have to eliminate any of your favorite foods or food groups.
The focus of GFG is to not just help you lose weight, but to make sure you have the skills and tools you need to be able to keep it off.
To do this, we focus on your mindset, addressing any limiting beliefs and patterns of self-sabotage that have hindered your past efforts.
We also focus on integrating your exercise and nutrition habits into your lifestyle so that when it comes time to maintain your healthy weight, it’s not a struggle at all.
We start with a kickoff call to take a deep dive into your lifestyle and the behaviors and beliefs that have been keeping you stuck.
Then, to ensure you’re on track toward your goals, we have one-on-one coaching calls and weekly check-ins to cover highlights of the past week, troubleshoot and strategize for the upcoming week, make any tweaks to your program. and work through inevitable “life stuff” as it comes up.
In between calls, you have 24/7 messenger access to me, via your private coaching portal.
This comprehensive, multifaceted approach is exactly what you need to drop the weight without being miserable AND develop your lifestyle to effortlessly maintain your healthy weight once you get there.
No more yo-yo-ing.
No more losing the same 10, 15, 30 pounds over and over again.
Lose it FOR GOOD.
I know what it’s like to try to be everything to everyone. To want to excel at work. At school. In your marriage. As a mother. As a friend. And to find that doing all those things leaves very little left for yourself.
I know what it’s like to feel like your self-care is the first thing to go when things get crazy (and aren’t they always?). To have the slightest disruption to your precious routines throw you into a tailspin of emotional eating and inactivity.
Not a lot of coaches understand that it can be hard to say “no” to others in order to focus on yourself. But I get it. You are not alone!
The truth is, I wasn’t able to stop experiencing the high-highs and low-lows of my weight until I realized how much my health and happiness spilled over into every other aspect of my life! At the end of the day, I know where you are coming from because I am you!
"You are an amazing young woman who has a heart for healing people find themselves and get healthier… and confident. You have touched my life in a way that you will never know… I could hug you for being you and so wonderful to me."
“Working with Esther has helped me to relinquish negative mindsets and choose healthier ones.
I feel like since being on program with Esther, even when times have gotten tough and I've just wanted to throw in the towel I just won't let myself quit. And I know that it has a lot to do with my 6 mos. with Esther.
If you're worried about this just being another thing that won't work for you, you can stop there. I came into this hoping for noticeable physical changes (weight loss, toned, etc) but have gotten more than that. I believe inner change is what helps so much more and I am getting that.
I'm definitely more encouraged with being with Esther than I have been with any program.”
You will receive:
I was tired of trying a thousand different things and failing miserably every time I didn't see the results I expected.
I reached out to Esther. We discussed my goals and I decided to sign up for a 12 week program to jumpstart myself.
Those 12 weeks came and went and I realized I was a different person than the one who had started on this journey. I was WAY more accountable to a trainer than I ever was to myself. Those 12 weeks turned into 12 months and it's the best decision I ever made.
Esther is so much more than a trainer at this point. She is a confidant, a shoulder to lean on, and a friend. She goes above and beyond to keep me on track and she gives the best advice when I'm in a panic over all of life's worries. I am so thankful for this woman and her unwavering support.”
