Healthy Living Warriors
Building a Healthy Life
through ACTION and COMMUNITY!
What is a Healthy Living Warrior?
Healthy Living Warriors - we’re committed to empowering the LGBTQ community to become stronger - in body, mind and spirit! Our mission - to cause you to discover inner strength, inner beauty and inner power that you don’t even know you have yet!
Healthy eating and fitness are opportunities for us to discover our bodies, to learn new things, to take on challenges, to get stronger, and most of all - to have fun!
We’re building an LGBTQ positive spaces for people of all shapes and abilities to take on healthy living. Wherever you’re starting, whatever your fitness goals are - the Warrior Tribe is your community - here to support you at every step!
The Warrior Code (Our Values)
There are four values that underlay all of our programs, client relationships, and community conversations
Warriors focus on Accomplishments more than Results!
Living life is about the journey. Warriors celebrating every workout - every meal - every accomplishment on our path! We set goals - we blow past them!
There is no destination for Warriors - we don’t “arrive” - we live life every day in ACTION and supporting those in our COMMUNITY.
“The Strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the Strength of the Wolf is the Pack”.
Too often, we get in our heads and think we have to do things on our own... or do something before we will be accepted. We want to achieve a result before we share with others that we are attempting it.
We are stronger together - and YOU make us all stronger. Plus, life is more fun with others.
We’re out to cause online and in person communities of Healthy Living Warriors around the globe!
In a world defined by body image, we’re bringing the Body Positive movement to LGBTQ fitness.
In our programs and community, we’ll explore what our Warriors want their bodies to look like - what they want their bodies to be able to do - and how to fall in love with our body again!
You’ll discover power inside embracing your body and supporting others to do the same.
Life isn’t a 4-week program - nothing works, unless it works in the real world. No quick fixes here - it’s about incremental personal development and growth.
Warriors focus on discovering what their body needs to be healthy. Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep, Mindfulness, Community Connections, Emotional Health, Relationships and Spirituality - just a few examples of what we discover about ourselves inside our program!
Even in our breakdowns, there’s a discovery waiting to happen - what to put in next time to be even stronger!
Thoughts from the CAK (Chief Ass-Kicker)
I'm CJ - a Healthy Living Warrior. I spent my teens and 20s battling body image, self esteem, and emotional eating issues, and trying to work up enough strength and courage to come out. It was a long lonely process - and wildly unsuccessful for the most part.
I tried diets - programs - books - you name it - and nothing worked... they all made sense in theory - but weren't workable for me in every day life.
In a desperate attempt to break through (and "out") - I signed on with a personal trainer - determined to get results. My confidence grew. I came out EVERYWHERE, in a "with sparkles" kind of way.
Things I discovered along the way:
"I" will always be my own most limiting factor
The power of community and coaches in pursuing goals
Life is happier when we are fully self expressed - and we can be fully self expressed RIGHT NOW - in whatever shape we are
Working out is a passion for me
I want to empower and make a difference for my community
Life can be all rainbows and unicorns!
Certified as a Personal Training Specialist and a Healthy Eating and Weight Loss Coach, I created Healthy Living Warrior from my personal journey. All the things I discovered and did wrong along the way, along with the best of exercise and nutrition science, to empower those on a similar journey. Let's take on this adventure together!
Healthy Living Warrior is a title and a way of life. I am a Healthy Living Warrior! You can be a Healthy Living Warrior!
I'm here - as one member of the Tribe - to help lead you, motivate you, challenge you, push you and empower you to live your best life! Together - we are a Tribe of Healthy Living Warriors - a community - a team! We will support each other on our individual journeys. We will all win our healthy living goals together!
I invite you to make the declaration, join the tribe, BE a Warrior - and share the Warrior Lifestyle with people in your life! The next step is yours - declare your Warrior status - and dive in with us!
