Elyse (5)

Hey there, I’m Elyse!  I’m currently studying for the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) Certified Personal Trainer exam.  After passing, the goal by the end of 2017 is to get my ISSN (International Society of Sports Nutrition)  Sports Nutrition Specialist certification.

The mission behind this blog is to be relatable and helpful to anyone currently in pursuit of active and healthy lifestyles, or wish to start.  This is my place to share workouts, recipes, tips and tricks in the kitchen, and make the overwhelming thought of “I want to but I don’t know where to start” vanish so you can hit the ground running.

I’ve lived in the small town of Wendell, NC all my life and I’ve been married to the man that brings out the best in me for 4 years.  I’m rarely seen without a coffee mug in my hand.  I have two cats, two brothers, and a passion for helping women become strong, capable, and confident through resistance training and understanding nutrition.
