Meet Coach Moore!

Hello! My name is Michelle Moore and I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach. I began this journey 75 pounds heavier than I am today and so confused about how to lose weight. My passion for health and fitness is the reason I decided to become a Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach, as well as a desire to help others. I know there are so many questions out there about what is the best diet plan or whether carbs are good or bad. I can tell you along my journey I have tried so many diets! I have tried shakes, paleo, low-fat, low-carb diets and I’m still continuing on my journey. Now I feel so much more equipped and I know I will reach my goal. I am so grateful to have the knowledge I have now and to be able to share it with all of you! My goal is to help others with the same struggles I’ve had by providing the tools and information needed to live a healthier and happier life through nutrition and fitness. Let’s hit our goals together now! TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER!!!

Tip of the Month

 Think Outside the Box! Aim for more whole foods and less pre-packaged processed foods.  

  1. Are you craving sweet snacks? Try fresh fruit for a quick snack or make a healthy version  of your favorite cookies or bars.  This will not only be a healthier option, but it will also save you money! Ka-ching $$$$
  2. Are you craving salty snacks? Try kale chips or use an air fryer or oven to make your own potato chips or tortilla chips with little to no oil and less sodium.
  3. Short on time and trying to skip the fast food lines? You can meal prep once a week so that your meals and snacks are pre-packed and ready for your busy week. You can also make large batches of a recipe and freeze meals for later. This means getting several containers or baggies and dividing your snacks and meals into serving size portions. When buying freezer bags, I recommend spurging on the ziploc bags so they don’t leak.
  4. Why should I choose whole foods? Prepackaged foods cost more! They also tend to be less healthy because they have artificial ingredients, more fat, more sugar, and less nutrients.  The best options are whole lean meats like chicken, fish, and turkey and fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables.
