Welcome to Elizabeth Walen Lifestyle + Fitness. I am a wife and mom with a dedication to fitness and healthy eating. It is my goal to help you find your way to a fitness routine that you will love and assist you as you work and nourish your body to be the healthiest that its ever been.
Fitness and healthy eating are things I’ve enjoyed most of my life but there have been some times that I seriously struggled to stay in shape and feel healthy. The year before my daughter was born, I was working a job I was really passionate about, but I was working all the time. Combined with a long commute, working out and planning healthy meals definitely fell to the back burner. When things finally slowed down a bit at work, it was because I was on maternity leave with a newborn! Once things settled down and we become a little more adjusted to our new normal, I realized that I had quite a few problems. The first was that my baby was five months old and my pre-pregnancy clothes still did not fit. The second, was that my baby had never slept longer than two hours and the thought of dragging her and all the necessary paraphernalia to the gym was exhausting in itself. Finally, I just didn’t feel healthy.
More than feeling confident with my body, feeling healthy was really important to me. Heart disease runs in my family. My own dad experienced congestive heart failure when I was just twenty-one. Luckily, he’s ok now and has been able to experience some of my most important moments. I so desperately wanted to be healthy for my daughter so I knew I had to get back into shape. I’d been a “coach” for Beachbody for some time so that I could enjoy the discount on my shakes. I recommitted myself to the programs and found myself feeling better than ever. Then, something truly amazing happened. Other moms and busy women in my life starting asking me to help them take back control of their health and something that was a passion and a hobby grew into a business.
I’m so glad you’ve found my little corner of the web and I can’t wait to help you with your own goals. You can email me here with your questions or to get started.
