My name is Andrea Saliba and I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Health Coach, Certification Fitness Instructor and Mother of three. I am also apart of the Nutrition Advisory Board and a regular contributor for Optimyz Magazine.
Health and wellness have always been something I have been passionate about from a very young age. In my earlier years, I suffered body complex issues, anxiety and panic attacks. I believed that the number on the scale was the true definition of health. I was able to combat my anxiety with regular meditation, practicing deep breathing techniques and eating a balanced diet. Exercise was my one true outlet, leading me down the journey of becoming a Fitness Instructor. The fitness industry taught me to appreciate and respect my body, making me undertand that strong did not mean being slim.
After my first child was born, someone very close to me was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Scleroderma. This led me to become curious about holistic health and wellness. As a new Mother, I also wanted my family to learn healthy habits so I made the decision to go back to school and study towards becoming a Holistic Nutritionist. From here, my life drastically changed in the most powerful way. I came to realize that food is medicine and what we eat greatly impacts our health both physically and mentally.
Today, I have helped many people take control of their diet, lifestyle and overall well being. With 18 years of experience as a Fitness Instructor and having gone through my own struggles in life, I have been shaped into the person I am today and feel very fortunate that I can bring these principles into my practice. I strongly believe that our mind & body are connected. That is why I offer Motivational Coaching as an option to my services. I help shift the mindset of my clients towards a positive one so that they can build the confidence needed in order for true results to occur.
Whether it is a basic meal plan or an all over lifestyle change you are seeking, I can help guide you towards the results you want to achieve. You must first be ready to make a change within yourself. Change is something that must come from within because if you are ready, you will love the way you look and feel!
“I am a firm believer in the mind body connection. The secret to any health goal starts within the mind. Once you start believing in yourself and think positively, thats when the real magic happens!”
