"This is the best I've eaten in my entire life; I didn't realize how much better I could feel. Danielle helped me realize that what I thought were healthy choices, really were not. In fact, some of them weren't much better than eating my favorite candy bar. Now I get it and can make healthier choices!"
"Loved the opportunity to work with Danielle on my health and fitness journey! I am very much into health and fitness myself, but I am fully aware of areas that I needed help with! Danielle offered to take me on as a client and I was so eager to learn from her! I very much appreciated how easy it was to talk with her openly about my own health concerns, never did I feel self conscious or judged by her. Danielle creates such a safe friendly atmosphere/relationship to be able to be open with concerns, which I feel is key to really getting the results you want (being open/honest with your coach and yourself). She was able to break down my big concerns into smaller more manageable tasks that help to keep on track! I also appreciate how “on it” Danielle was, if I had a question or concern, she ALWAYS got back to me quickly with a text or voice message! I loved our conversations, and the opportunity to learn from her."
"Danielle has helped me make healthier diet choices and understand exercise that I can complete myself without confusion. The weekly check-ins are great and messaging from her periodically throughout the week has been incredibly helpful!"
My main goal was to transform my thought process on food, portion sizes, and to get back into a routine of working out. One of my favorite parts was definitely learning about food and nutrition, learning the macros and retraining the brain. What sets Soul Soar Integrative Wellness apart from other similar services is the time Danielle explains more about the food and nutrition, very important. It's all a mind changing thing.
My main goal was to focus on fitness training/resistance training and I've been very happy with the workouts programmed each week. And, honestly, everything has been really great! I love that you've been willing to work with me in a hybrid format! I think that's unique and that you're great at providing the specific services clients need.
"Working with Danielle was one of the best decisions I've made on my fitness/wellness journey. When I started out, I was definitely very nervous about eating more food and needed to shift my mindset. Danielle helped me so immensely with this and was patient enough to repeat things I needed to hear a few times over until it stuck. At first, I was definitely hesitant about making the investment; it seemed extreme and I wasn't sure how helpful it would be. But after seeing how science-based and reasonable Danielle's posts were, and knowing she had a healthcare background, I knew I was in good hands. Over the 8 weeks we worked together, Danielle was flexible, knowledgeable, and thorough. I'm eating about 300 calories more per day while maintaining a stable weight. I upped my push-up game significantly and was able to continue increasing weight in my exercises pretty much every week. I can't tell you how good it felt to have sustained energy throughout my workouts again. I gained not only a mentor but also a friend while working with Danielle. Yay fitness buds!!! You won't regret signing up for Danielle's coaching, I am sure of it."
“My favorite part of working with Danielle was her enthusiasm. She made me believe I could do it. She believed in me before I believed in me. She was always so helpful when it came to adjusting to the ebbs and flows of my personality. I was on the fence about the investment, but after talking with Danielle I decided that it was worth a try. I went all in because I felt like I was in a place I could put in the work. I have seen amazing results like not viewing food as “good” or “bad”. I never thought I would accomplish that view point.”
I really wanted to learn how to eat healthy and maintain a healthy weight when I started working with Danielle. She is so helpful when it comes to teaching the fundamentals of a healthy approach to eating and learning to eat a proper amount to maintain health. My favorite part of working with Danielle is having feed back, and help with understanding the need to eat the right amount of calories. The best is having feed back from someone instead of just using an app. The positive feed back and adjustments have made this journey much easier. I have made a lot of progress so far in her program such as: understanding i need to eat protein, fiber carb, starchy carb and fat; eating enough calories. Tracking my protein intake to make my goal amount. I have lost a little, maintained my weight and am eating enough calories. I feel better about myself tracking the progress I've made.
My goals when starting were to gain more energy, lose weight, and learn healthy eating habits. My favorite part of working with Danielle was the accountability! Weekly check-ins and reflection on what works well/not well. Her availability - that she’s available through Voxer when something unexpectedly comes up. She was so helpful when it came to cheering me on and she has good knowledge of nutrition and workouts. I am feeling stronger and more energetic after working with Danielle and have less stress around food & meals.
"I am loving everything! The weekly checkins are my jam!!! Literally get so excited when that loom is dropped in my Voxer. It keeps me motivated and I love the small adjustments each week"
"Learning how to restore internal health on my way to my goals has been really helpful. Danielle has helped me understand how to properly fuel my body and I'm already feeling better."
"Working with Dani has improved my understanding of nutrition and with more knowledge, my mindset has improved. Dani has taught me the importance of recognizing foods that fuel my body to become stronger without restricting the foods I love. Dani’s guidance with strength training makes me excited to exercise and the reward is my clothes fit better."
"Soul Soar/Danielle was amazing. I felt like the level of communication was a perfect balance for me, very encouraging and provided so many great resources to pin point problems/issues that may be blocking my progress. I have seen a huge impact to the way I choose or plan meals and even picking healthier options when we are out and about, definitely gained a huge awareness and the start of a good relationship with food. I have seen progress in my strength and weight loss progress as well. I feel better about myself as a whole and even feel like I have more energy with my kids. This is what I needed to get myself on a good track and have accountability so I don't just fall off the wagon. I have learned so much; my favorite has been the training I think. I never really had a comfort level with using the barbell or dumbbells really....they always seemed super intimidating. I have really enjoyed the different exercises and getting myself comfortable with strength training!"
Coaching with Danielle helped me put my physical and mental health first by being comfortable with saying "no" to things that required me to push off my "me time." Learning the importance of protein by seeing and seeing the difference it made by intentionally including it in my meals helped a lot too. I started listening to my body and getting enough sleep and started connecting food to hormones. I have just begun to scratch the surface but she got me asking questions and connecting food to moods, PMS, and headaches.
"The biggest thing was not letting the scale have so much freaking impact! I started taking weekly progress photos and over a couple of months, I could see a huge difference in my body even though my weight was the same. I was lifting heavier and sleeping better, which I would have overlooked before. It took me a while to get everything she taught me to click in my head, but better late than never!"
