I’m Ingrid, a Registered Dietitian nutritionist (RD), NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and certified yoga instructor with over 10 years of nutrition and wellness experience.
I don’t believe in a diet approach. For full life living, I believe in balance and moderation. In the beginning, we will start by creating a solid knowledge base for selecting healthy, good-for-you foods, after which I like to move clients past the restrictive diet approach to one focused on abundance and intuitive eating. Our bodies are not the enemy and deserve to be celebrated for all the amazing things they can do and food celebrated for its ability to nourish our bodies and minds. Using these techniques, we’ll create a long lasting approach to health and well-being.
I believe in balance for fitness as much as any other area of life – a good routine should include strength, cardiovascular/endurance training, and flexibility. Based on your assessment, we’ll organize these components into a plan that works best with your lifestyle.
Will we work well together?
Finding a dietitian, health coach, or personal trainer with whom you work well is essential for your success. I offer a free 15 minutes “Get-to-Know-You” session to determine if working with me will help you be the most successful before you pay a dime. If for whatever reason I may not be your right fit, I can point you in a different direction based on what it is you may be needing to be the most successful.
My roots are in Minnesota where I was born and raised. After finishing my dietetics undergrad education, I completed my Master’s in Food Science and Human Nutrition at the University of Illinois. I now live in New Mexico (going on eights years) with my husband and our fur children, staffy bulldog mixes Izzy and Po. Although I’m a Midwest girl at heart, I’m loving everything the Southwest has to offer. In my spare time I enjoy trying new restaurants, long walks with my husband and dogs, travel, and reading a good book (usually yoga, self-empowerment, or fiction).
