ABOUT

Gina Marie Perkins

Owner/Trainer/Coach/Specialist

While I've spent the majority of my career in the corporate world, I instinctively knew that my purpose in life would direct me along a different path.  

It's so hard to believe, but almost 20 years ago, I met a nutritionist who changed my life. She was sort of my last ditch effort in saving myself from years of destructive body image issues. She literally rescued me by way of food education. As a result of that relationship, I realized the significance of holistic health, and discovered that there was way more to feeling good than just fitting into smaller jeans! 

As my life began to change, I quickly discovered my passion for health and fitness and eagerly went on to earn certifications in Fitness Training, Fitness Nutrition Coaching, Holistic Stress Management, Children’s Nutrition Coaching, Pre/Post Natal Exercise Coaching, and Reiki Level 1. Most recently, I have completed a Dr. Bill Sears L.E.A.N. Training and Certification program, focusing on children ages 3-12.

Despite all of my training, my biggest, proudest accomplishments are my two daughters. It has been through raising them that I have discovered my passion for nurturing others through healthy meals. My girls have sparked in me a great love for cooking, shopping farmer's markets, and making our dining room table a place where tummies and souls are fed the good stuff. My Italian Noni would be so proud that I’ve carried on (a healthier version of) her legacy.

Because of my devotion to feeding my family clean, unprocessed, fresh, and gluten free foods - it seemed only natural that this is where I would focus my business, despite my extensive education in fitness training. Yep, I'm just that head-over-heels in love with the healing potential of food!

I work with women, men and children. I particularly enjoy solving cases of weight gain and bloating, unexplainable fatigue, frequent migraines, mysterious skin rashes, interrupted sleep, sore muscles and aching joints, etc. through dietary changes. There’s such satisfaction in seeing the outward changes in people’s lives when they simply change what’s going inward.

I encourage my clients to take an active role in their road to wellness through comprehensive education and continual support . My goal is to make the process of achieving holistic health pleasurable and rewarding. Ultimately, feeling great is about nurturing the mind, body and spirit – and I will be there to ensure you’re equipped with the proper tools to be forever transformed.
