Hi there, friend – I’m Shannan. I’m a Pastor’s wife and mother to four children: Tyler (18), Joren (15), Brody (9) and Selah (6). I’m also really passionate about helping people live balanced, healthier lives. As you will see, that’s been a struggle for me a lot of my life.
While I grew up playing competitive sports and being very active, my weight was a constant struggle in my younger years. After losing a significant amount of weight due to a medical elimination diet to address some health issues, I spent years battling various disordered eating behaviors. Becoming a mom for the first time put a temporary stop to my disordered eating, but it wasn’t until several years later, through an online Bible study, that I began to fully grasp the idolatry that was at the root of my prior struggles.
Partly because of the change I experienced in my own life, I became a fitness professional. But I’ve seen a great need for Biblical truth to be applied to the area of body care as so many of my clients were struggling to find freedom and lasting heart change, not just weight loss. While I’m a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Fit for the King Coach with 15 years of group fitness experience, it’s the power of the gospel–applied to our relationships and stewardship of our bodies– that’s the real star in this journey. I possess a passion for helping others discover the kind of health that frees them to be available to love God and serve others, and I hope I have the privilege of walking this path with you!
