FITPERSPECTIVE is a business focused on Holistic Nutrition Coaching. The services offered support both adults and children, and come in the form of one-on-one, partnership and workshop training.

Launched in 2008, FITPERSPECTIVE originally offered Personal Training, Pre and Post Natal Exercise Coaching, as well as Holistic Stress Management, in addition to Nutrition Coaching. However, FITPERSPECTIVE represents the progression of owner, Gina Perkins', priorities, interests and awareness - and has thus evolved over the years to align to such principles.

After the birth of her second child, and acknowledging the satisfaction of nurturing her family through food, Gina's passion for preparing clean, unprocessed, fresh, gluten free meals began to grow. As a result, FITPERSPECTIVE began focusing solely on Nutrition Coaching in late 2010.

Allow FITPERSPECTIVE to support you through your journey to greater health. The single most precious gift you can allow yourself is the joy of learning how to best feed your body and soul through proper nutrition.

Cilantro Helps Detox Heavy Metals

Did you know that cilantro is proven to be effective for toxic metal cleansing from your body? The chemical compounds in cilantro bind to mercury, lead, and aluminum in tissues and helps remove them from your body.

Some experts suggest that eating 1/4 cup of fresh, organic cilantro daily for 2-3 weeks will detox your body of those harmful, heavy metal neurotoxins.


Here's a recipe for cilantro pesto, from Real Simple.



3 garlic cloves, peeled and coarsely chopped

2 cups fresh cilantro, lightly packed

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



Place the garlic and cilantro in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. With the processor running, slowly add the oils, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Process until smooth.
