Marina Nina Tsapelas

marinaAfter losing over 140lbs while working with Nkem, my personal trainer, close friend and now business partner, I decided to take everything I learned in my own weight loss journey & use it to help others. Coming from a counseling background with 5+ years of experience, my desire to help people has always been there. Combine that with having successfully fought a 10+ year battle with obesity myself and it was the perfect storm to fuel my passion for wanting to help others succeed specifically in their own fitness and weight loss efforts. I never wanted another person to enter their journey anxious, confused and exploited by their insecurities, lack of knowledge and flood of misinformation about nutrition and health in the mass media.
