There’s a lot of misinformation out there on both prenatal and postpartum nutrition and exercise.

Every woman’s prenatal and postpartum journey is unique….

Forgot my gym shoes today 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ BUT that didn’t stop me from working out. These boots were made for lunging 😉
(I started off in barefeet but was told I needed shoes).

I’m on my “bazilyionth” reusable water bottle. 😆
In my 25+ years of gym life, I’ve shed many tears over losing water bottles (like Sigg, Klean Kanteen and Takeya). All kidding aside...what techniques do you use to help you “remember” your reusable water bottle?

Always begin with the end in mind. Get clear about your vision and what you want to create. Continue to hold your desired outcome in mind, because you may get distracted along the way and want to divert or you can get thrown off course by people and circumstances happening around you.

Here’s a tip▶️baby steps! That was me in my 20s. Yes, I treated my body like a trash can 🤦🏻‍♀️ and wasted so much money on “stuff” I didn’t need or “things” that harmed my body. Now you may not do any of these things and still think being healthy is expensive. Give & Take. If something is important to you, you will do it. Stop spending money on something if it doesn’t benefit you and put that money towards something else that does.

Invest in you! It does pay off.

If you could kick the person responsible for most of the troubles in your life, you wouldn’t sit for a month.
Once you stop playing victim and blaming others for your problems it’s easier to embrace your own ability to change, overcome and achieve.

It’s not what you do some of the time that matters, it’s what you do most of the time.
I was 41 in this picture. It was taken 2.5 months after I retired as an IFBB bikini pro and 2.5 weeks before I tested “+” for pregnancy. For me competition prep didn’t make me miserable. Why would I ever continue to do something that did (far too many people do)?🤷🏻‍♀️
In working with clients, whether it’s for contest prep or for other life goals and dreams, most “think” they need to be miserable in order to have a bikini/fitness body (so they fear working with me🤦🏻‍♀️). Once they work with me they see this isn’t true and the “unlearning” process begins. If your program doesn’t have balance- not just a variety of foods but a variety of things to promote vitality in all areas of your life you’ll soon burn out...and do more damage to your physical mental emotional and spiritual health, than good. I’m not a “personal trainer”. I’m a Chek Holistic Lifestyle Coach. We look at food, exercise, rest, sleep, recovery, mobility, happiness, stress and so much more. Health isn’t having a bikini body or looking at only your outside. It’s starts from within you. Some don’t want to look at their insides. I didn’t want to til my 30s! . Being healthy from the inside out is a long process, worthwhile, it requires constant upkeep and willingness to change.
So if you aren’t where you wanna be, ask yourself this...are you doing what you need to do to reach your dream majority of the time or only some of the time? If you’re miserable doing it than others areas of your life need to be addressed to find the right balance that works for you.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I’ve worked with Nicole for 9 months, twice a week in one-on-one sessions. I knew of her from just being a member at Lifetime Fitness, where she was a trainer and taught some classes I took. For several years, I admired her posts on social media, in which she emphasized the importance of proper nutrition as a form of preventative medicine, as well as the power it can have in healing chronic disease and illness…

Melissa s.

Nicole Moneer helped me tremendously by advising me on nutrition and workouts. I lost 25 pounds and 4 inches in my waist as a result of her guidance and insight. Before I started working with Nicole, I struggled for more than 10 years to lose weight. I also struggled with heartburn and a variety of other physical ailments. Her guidance on eating real food and taking proper supplementation have cured my heartburn…

Scott B.

My time with Nicole has been above and beyond my expectations. I thought I would sign up with Nicole, she would show me a lot of different work outs, I’d get her opinions on different foods and supplements and that would be it. She taught me way more than I could’ve imagined! Nicole is teaching me different work outs every time we meet. Whether it’s lifting weights or doing Pilates reformer…

Maureen B.

I had an unhealthy relationship with food going from one extreme to another, starving and binging. I used to work out just so I can eat whatever I wanted. Eventually, I would get too busy or get tired of working out and eating to my heart’s content would catch up with me. I’d gain weight and be unhappy about how I looked and worked out like crazy (sometimes as much as 2-3 hrs/day) to lose the weight…
