Begins JANUARY 2024!
Vitality Tribe: Muscle + Menopause Edition is an 8-week workshop and challenge built to help you build healthy muscle to help you stay vital!
Beginning at the age of 30, our muscle mass and strength begin to decline (sarcopenia). By middle age we lose 3% of our muscle strength each year….unless we do something about it. Current recommendations by the RDA for protein intake is for survival…not for thriving. And only half the American population exercise at all and half of those who exercise do what it takes to maintain and build muscle. Muscle is the organ of longevity!
Factors that increase our rate of muscle loss include:
•unbalanced diet low in protein
•mid-life hormone changes
Having robust muscle has benefits way beyond aesthetics:
•immediate improvements in blood sugar balance
•long-term benefits of stronger bones
•better insulin sensitivity
•metabolism improvement and protection
•lowering of triglycerides
•improved body composition
•increased survivability of nearly every disease
•and better mood
What You’ll Get:
•accountability group to come alongside you as you work towards increasing protein intake and regular resistance training
•option for special rate for unlimited classes at both studios
•two in-person meetings to assess baseline metrics and final metrics in body composition and strength
•eight team workouts in various modalities (optional)
•team Facebook page to share reinforcements
Changing your nutrition and lifestyle habits is hard…but it is possible. More often than not, what is on our fork is a mere reflection of what is going on (or not going on) in our lives.
We spend some time getting a sense of what is working, what is serving you. And what is not. Then we get started with small, incremental changes. This is client-lead and paced.
Health coaches do not prescribe or suggest a one-size-fits-all plan or approach.
Good nutrition controls energy balance, gives us the nutrients we need to meet our needs, helps us look, feel and perform our best, is outcome-based, and is sustainable for you and the planet. Good nutrition is about removing limiting factors and is about enabling healthier, happier, and fuller lives.
Good lifestyle habits serve as a reflection of loving oneself and prioritizing the choices that make us the best version of ourself.
We consider the life holistically, and work to discover what makes you the most vibrant and joy-filled.

Meghan, thank you for the beautiful gift of your nutrition sessions. I thought I would walk away with just a solid food plan. Instead I walked away with the knowledge of nutrient-dense foods, the power of meditation, and the comfort of listening to my own body.
W.W.M.D. This is an acronym I often find myself reciting on a regular basis. "What Would Meghan Do?" Meghan is a true student of her field. She has so much to offer in terms of research and resources. I appreciate her ability to flex with my needs and goals. She is an excellent communicator. And her positivity and sense of humor kept me engaged an on task even on tough days.
Over the last weeks and months, I have continued to make healthy choices and progress towards my goals. I feel incredible and no longer experience brain fog. It's only being out of this fog that I now realize how not normal it was and awful and achy my body had felt all the time...over 50 lbs. down and more to go.
Motivate® works with local clients as well as people across the country. We meet via Zoom to make it accessible no matter where you are.
For our local clients, Motivate® pairs sound Nutrition + Health Coaching with your movement practice to make sure what you are doing outside the studio is complementing what you are doing inside the studio. Motivate® Health + Nutrition Coaching also adds accountability to your program. Change takes time and patience but having a certified nutrition coach to whom you are accountable in your corner makes it attainable.
Motivate® Health + Nutrition Coaching is not about a fast drop in weight although there can be a time and place for that. Fast weight loss is only temporary. It is not a program of shakes and elixirs. This is about a long-lasting, health-transforming shift in your nutrition and lifestyle habits based on real life. We will work together towards small, incremental, continual progress. You will make tiny gains consistently to achieve goals that you thought were beyond your reach. We will create new habits …for a lifetime.
Meghan has had generally good nutrition habits all along. She was raised by a woman who thought sugar was the devil. Seriously…Beelzebub. She could have brought cocaine home and her mother would have been less disappointed than if she had brought home a Three Musketeers Bar. What happens when there is something as taboo as that in the house…and you are precocious pre-teen? She might have taken advantage of any alone time by trying to freebase as many Chipwiches and Fun Dips as she could in a 45-minute walk back from her best friend’s house. And this was one of her first lessons in cause and effect relative to how you feed your body.
Meghan passed out no less the four times in one year driven by plummeting blood sugar levels that she surely had a hand in screwing up by binging on the aforementioned treasure trove of popular 80s confectioneries.
Meghan can still find the beauty and the curse of cause and effect in her lifestyle and eating habits today. When she is on her game she feels full of energy, optimistic, and tends to be more selfless. It is as if her body knows that its needs have been met to the fullest and she can look out to her family, friends, and the world to give of herself to others. And the opposite is true. When she is not treating her body (mind and soul included) well, she is tired, anxious, and is looking inwardly far too often. Being stuck in an anxious head is not a happy place to be.
Good nutrition…along with enough hydration, meditation, exercise, hugs, and sleep (among many other tiny habits)…keeps Meghan moving forward. She aims to bring that optimism that comes with good lifestyle and nutrition to her one-on-one and group coaching clients.
