TESTIMONIALS “ I used to think I was a “sugar addict.” A junk food junkie looking for her daily fix. My very first meeting with Joanne taught me about blood sugar stabilization and what was going on inside of my body when I’d have “my cravings.” That information gave me the tools to correct my problem cravings and I haven’t had one since.

“Joanne, I used to work in a fortune 500 company, i studied in college and at UCLA. That presentation was world class and top notch, among the best I’ve ever attended. I cannot speak enough about it. On my way to a clients party, going drag them in for Thursday performance.

“I just wanted to tell you how much our meeting 2 months ago helped! After eating low calorie and low fat for 15 years, I thought I had figured out being lean. However, after our meeting I made small changes to my diet which have made HUGE impacts on my body fat. For the past 8 years, I have weighed between 178 and 183 by doing a ton of cardio and eating extremely low fat/calorie. Since our meeting, I have swapped my Cliff Bar for a Balance bar, went from large sandwiches to small sandwiches with Double Meat, and am eating more high protein meals. Additionally, I’m doing half the cardio and I’m currently weighing 174 at 6’2″ and mostly muscle.

W finished my first full marathon yesterday out in Pasadena and our nutritional plan worked very well for me. I’m running with a mix of 1 part HEED, 2 part protein powder and a tablespoon of olive oil in my bottles. 90 minutes into the run I consume approximately 100 calories, repeating every 20 – 30 minutes depending on my condition & memory. That carried me through quite nicely as well as picking up an occasional orange slice, lots of water and at mile 23, eight oz. of coke. My total time was 7:08:29.
While of course it takes stamina and training, the nutrition portion was always the most frustrating that wasn’t working until you made your suggestion when we met. I didn’t touch the Cliff shots, sport beans, gu’s or any other carb laden “runners” thing (other than maybe the coke) and felt pretty good. I do the LA Marathon in a month and am looking forward to using this strategy again.

Y ou have touched my life in the most positive ways, for which Im so grateful. You hit upon something I forgot to mention, which is I love the depth of your understanding, and how inquisitive you are about how this stuff actually works, and your willingness to experiment and actually see what works, and what doesn’t. I do not do well with people who do things rote, which is so common in BB. I also realize I’m not the easiest project (ok, not a good word) due, I suppose, to my pickiness and to my need to have everything explained to me. But, I think you kind of enjoy that and that makes everything, well, fun!
Mostly, though, I never feel like your client. I feel like we are best friends, and and love your absolute dedication to helping me to achieve my goals!.
I want to thank you for all the support you have given to me over the past 9 months we have worked together – hard to believe it’s that long, right?
You have been more than a trainer or nutritionist for me, I view you as a friend, and a good one at that. I appreciate your dedication and enthusiasm, which really make the entire process ever so much more enjoyable!
You are quite a special person, and I feel very fortunate to have found you.

I wanted to congratulate you on your recent presentations. Everything you said makes total sense!
I have been a chronic dieter for decades and you would think after so much time I would have a good idea of what works and what doesn’t. In truth, nothing has worked and I was non the wiser. After attending your presentations I feel that I totally understand why no diet can ever work for me (or anyone else) and I understand how there is so much more to in that just eating less or counting points (I cant believe I did that) make the simple adjustments you suggested and the cravings I have lived with since my 20’s have gone, I dropped a few pounds the first week and that number continues to go down.
Most importantly I understand what I am doing now. You were so right, there is no longevity in just being told what to do, you have to have an understanding – and now I do.
I cannot thank you enough, I cant stop talking about you!

H aving trained with some of the biggest names in the fitness industry I thought I had seen and heard it all. That is until I trained with Joanne!
What makes her unique is her ability to figure out what works best for each individual and then to put it into a workout that is fun and geared towards rapid results.
Joanne is a true inspiration and her passion for life and fitness is contagious. I have recommend Joanne to many people and would not hesitate to do so again and again.
Joanne is the ultimate fitness and lifestyle coach.
P erfect! This is just what I have been looking for .. information with no bias and no hype I’d have to say I think your workshops have been extremely informative, an eye opener, and opens a new perspective on viewing our health. Thank you so much for tools I can use to live a healthier and more enjoyable life to come!
M any thanks for inviting me to your “If Diets Worked We’d All Be Skinny” seminar earlier this month. It was a Life-Changing event for me. You have an inimitable manner and skillfulness in the way in which you research, present and finally communicate your topics so that when your audience walks away they not only understand but actually feels your central ideas and themes.
Your profound message of the cumulative harmful affects which alcohol and the lack of effective sleep has on the Human Body/Condition really hit me right between my eyes ! While I will enjoy a nice glass of wine — or 2 — with some good friends my definition of “Party Time” has changed from doing whatever it takes to feel good and uninhibited for the next few hours to making wise decisions today so that I can enjoy my life and win the ultimate test — The Test Of Time.

I t wasn’t until I started training with Joanne that I saw REAL changes occur with my body. Honest, straightforward and easy to follow, Joanne’s plan of diet and fitness was the missing key to taking my physique to the next level. NPC Pro Card here I come!”

I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to have worked with such an wonderful, knowledgeable and awe inspiring person. What once only seemed like a impossible dream for me, was turned into a reality with Joanne’s vision, dedication, patience and guidance. Her wisdom goes beyond the gym or the kitchen, it carries with you through everyday life.”
