Hi! I’m the coconut! My name is Coéle. I’m a certified personal trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I live in Colorado Springs, CO and thoroughly enjoy the outdoors here by running in them. I began running in 2009 as an initial step on a journey towards a healthier life. My husband joined me in that journey about a year later. After running my first marathon in 2012, a fire was lit within me to learn more about running, nutrition, personal fitness, and how it all worked together to forge a healthier lifestyle. I was constantly reading articles and books and talking to people in the fitness industry; and the more I learned, the more my own journey towards a healthier life grew, and the more I wanted to share that journey with others and help others start their own journey. That’s why I decided to become a personal trainer. I wanted to share my love of fitness and healthy living with others. I also share Juice Plus with clients as a way to help them bridge the gap nutritionally between what they’re eating already and what their body really needs everyday. This blog is a way to share my continuing journey towards a healthier life and to hopefully help others continue or start their own journey. I will be sharing about my life as a personal trainer, wife, new mom, and athlete. I’d like to share my successes and struggles along with workouts, healthy recipes, and training tips. I can’t wait to meet more of you and hear about your journeys!
