While her career started out very much in science, it became very clear to Tonya early on that real, impact change for greater health & wellness was much more sustainable, when it was included as part of the bigger picture; embracing not only the physical body but the mind & the spirit as well. There was a need for an awareness beyond counting calories. Working with others to help them achieve their goals in living a life of sustainable health & wellness, by facilitating breaking down barriers & working through destructive patterns of behavior, is how Tonya’s clients are able to achieve long term, sustainable success, living in balance & harmony. While nutrition is an important component of living a healthier lifestyle & dis-ease free it is part of a much bigger equation. It is in recognizing patterns of behavior that are sabotaging the very things you want most,
which will allow you to step into a place personal power & the ability to consciously make better choices to live a life of incredible health & wellness.
“I can give you an eating plan & exercise program outlining a wellnessplan that looks better & will you serve you better than what it is you are choosing to do now. But how much greater & how much more powerful
would it be, if I helped you to become aware of & recognize what choices & behaviors you are engaging in now that are holding you back from that? THIS is the difference between a band-aid solution & permanent,
sustainable & sensational change.” - Tonya Fines
