Goals: Lose weight, get more toned, feel healthier, and more energetic
"If there was one thing I hated my entire life, that was exercise. I had no idea what a proper diet even consisted of and no clue where to even begin. I had grown content with just being overweight. That is- until Victoria changed my entire life. Not only did she overhaul the way I looked at food and exercise, but she did it in such a way that it became a seamless lifestyle transition. I don't know what I would do without her!!! She gave me back my confidence and my life! Anyone who wants to make positive changes in their health, appearance and well-being need look no further than Victoria!! A true blessing!!"

Goals: Lose weight, build muscle, reduce stress, and increase energy
"Victoria has been instrumental in helping me to achieve my goals of building muscle, feeling young and staying thin. She designed a workout plan that is easy to follow on a weekly basis and is not too time consuming (as that is my great excuse). The key, as it turns out, is not just the exercise, but the combination of exercise and eating. At first it all felt counter-intuitive, as Victoria had me cut down drastically on my cardio, focus more on weights, and EAT MORE AND MORE OFTEN! I thought that I would gain weight, but I didn’t. I put on muscle while staying lean and defined (there is actually a 50 year old six-pack starting to emerge). Most importantly, I feel great. She tailored the exercises to address old injuries so as not to aggravate them and allow them to heal (my knees and shoulders, although not perfect, feel like they have a lot less miles on them). I also have more energy than before.
As she taught me, it’s more about how and what you eat than the exercise - she has me consuming more nutritious foods more often, without the chemicals and junk. What clinched it for me was seeing the difference in how I feel between preparing my own meals and eating out. There is nothing wrong with eating out, but I travel a lot for work and will often eat out every day for a week. When I do that, I notice a difference in how I feel. Victoria tells me that I can treat myself better on the road, and we are talking about it, but I’m still a work in progress."

Goals: Lose weight and learn how to work out with weights
"Working with Victoria has revolutionized my work out routine and eating habits! After years of running for hours on the treadmill and eating fat-free foods, I wanted a change in my routine, but still wanted to maintain my lean body. Victoria's nutrition guidance has opened my taste buds to delicious foods I never thought I could eat before; delicious "whole" foods like unpasteurized milk and delicious grains I had never even heard of before. My exercise routine had also been completely transformed. I was no longer spending hours bored on the treadmill and instead was doing routines which included weight lifting that got me definition in my muscles I had never seen had before."

Goals: Lose weight, feel healthier
"Victoria put together a program based on what she knew she could accomplish with a client like myself. She went at a pace she knew I would accept because I’m a tough nut to crack and had she started in immediately insisting on joining a gym or juicing for more vegetables, I would have freaked out. So her pace was excellent. She instinctually knew this about me and steered me in a totally different direction than I initially signed up to be steered towards.
I have now developed some very powerful and positive habits that are incredibly life changing and so so good for me. And I definitely did not sign up for that. I signed up to lose 15 pounds and have a rail thin body. But what happened is a fell in love with the body I got after about 6 weeks of working with Victoria and it only was about a 10 pound difference. It became not about how much I weighed but how good I felt and how good I looked in the mirror. Huge change for me.
[The single most significant overall change I noticed was that] I stopped idealizing anorexia as a beautiful and desirable body type. That’s about a 30 to 40 year obsession that has been put to rest. If this was all I got out of the program, it would have been enough. This obsession ruled my life for a very long time.
Overall, it was an incredible experience. Thank you.

Goals: Lose weight and learn how to eat and cook healthier.
"I turned to Victoria for help with my diet, after years of yo-yo weight gain and loss and more "diets" than I can count. I realized that I needed to change my mindset and find a method of healthy eating; what I didn't expect was that Victoria is helping me figure out healthier living. From the food I put into my body, the activity that I give it and the positive thinking to fuel my mind, I have lost pounds and pains while gaining so much more."
