I am a firm believer that health and wellness is not a one-size fits all experience. You have one body, so it should be trained with care, attention and efficiency. How you feed your body is of equal importance. But first, and foremost, your mindset is everything.
"Tessa is a powerhouse of skill, wisdom, and TRUTH. As a fitness, health, and wellness professional, she knows how to inspire and motivate her clients from the inside out so that they experience transformation that is lifelong and so magical. She is an expert at assisting her clients to tap into their own inner wisdom so they can let go of the trend diet and fad workout experience forever! FREEDOM! Finally, Tessa is a master at helping each client learn how to love and accept themselves both internally and externally which is PRICELESS. Tessa's heart is as big as the ocean and she leads with Love. I am in awe of her."
Over the past 10 years I have tried it all, home work out videos, going to a gym, paying lots of money for nutrition guidance and personal training, to doing over the top crash diets but none of these things were really working and they were not sustainable at all. To make my mental gymnastics worse when I started my business I had this idea that I had to look the part which to me meant weighting 100 pounds and wearing a size 00. This is not what success looks like and Tessa helped me to realize that. This is where Tessa separates herself from the rest of the industry. She doesn't just put you on some arbitrary plan she listens to what your needs and goals are and guides you as you discover what really matters to you. She helped me have a better relationship with food and with fitness not only from a physical standpoint but more importantly a mental one. 6 years later I have a successful business that makes me happy and it has nothing to with what I look like but who I am. I highly recommend Tessa, she will rock your world!

"Tessa is not your average fitness trainer. She's a health coach, fitness guru, friend, and a super-warm life coach all wrapped up into one. In my time with Tessa, not only did she help me transform my body, but she made me realize what I was capable of. I not only found my physical strength but also my emotional strength, and I always felt better after a session with Tessa. I love Tessa and feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with her. Know that A) If you can work with her, you're very lucky; and B) She will 100% - absolutely - change your life."
Tessa is a one-of-a-kind personal trainer and health coach. Not one to shy away from being the most up-to-date, knowledgeable and creative, a session with her reveals her immense preparation and skill and complete understanding of what it’s like to be in “this” body.
Tessa's approach incorporates moving the body in all three dimensions, using well-established exercises and guidelines, which strengthen the body in a functional way. What I really like about her approach is its adaptability. He programming goes beyond just the training aspect; it’s the full package. I’ve seen how invested Tessa is with her clients success and happiness in life, something I don’t see enough of in the fitness community.
The holistic approach focusing on what we eat, what we do for ourselves, how we think about ourselves, and how we move our bodies gets to the core of what wellness is. It’s not about our “numbers” (weight, size, daily calories) but on how we feel based on how we treat our bodies and our psyches.
