I believe change starts with your mind! Giving up and giving in is never an option! I truly enjoy helping people become healthy! Health is a "lifelong" practice. You must constantly change and learn throughout your health practice. My general focus with clients is helping them achieve balance between stress relief, sleep, proper exercise, injury prevention, organization, planning, proper nutrition and constantly challenging their abilities. I work with clients of all ages, abilities and unique situations. Education is important to the me and for my clients. The health and fitness industry is fascinating because it is constantly changing and growing. It is important that we are receiving accurate and scientific information about the health and fitness industry. Therfore, I am constantly learning and teaching my clients. I am originally from Detroit, Michigan and currently reside in Denver, CO. My favorite team is the Michigan Wolverines, "Go Blue". I am passionate about helping people become healthy. I enjoy music, health and fitness, dance, yoga, pilates, swimming, travel, studying languages and dogs.

    I have always worked out pretty consistently and my eating habits have been healthy. But I have not been able to lose my extra weight. Then I started meeting with Courtney. She helped me raise my expectations for myself. My goal was to lose 20 pounds over a one year period. It's been almost 6 months, I have lost 15 pounds, and I feel healthier than I have in years. Courtney goes above and beyond, and I feel lucky to have her in my life.

    My job requires extensive travel and eating out. In 2009, I started running to get in shape, but it wasn't helping with weight loss. I was intimidated by the gym and decided to try a personal trainer. Luckily, I met Courtney. I like that Courtney listens to my needs, is encouraging and motivating without yelling, takes the whole body into consideration, and tailors our sessions to what is happening with my body on a particular day. She's flexible in her training and caters to the individual and their goals. Courtney also helped me choose healthy eating options when I was required to eat out for work. Over the years, I've felt healthier, maintained a healthy weight, and have generally felt better physically and mentally. In addition, Courtney has helped me stay strong through 40 weeks of pregnancy. My family and friends are surprised that I'm still working out this late in my pregnancy, but I trust Courtney to only do exercises that are safe for me and my pregnant body. I've felt strong throughout and I believe working out with Courtney has contributed to my healthy pregnancy and, hopefully, to an easier labor and delivery. Basically, Courtney is able to work well with people in all stages of life who are motivated to be healthy.

    Thanks for all of your support these past 3.5 years, Courtney! I am a better person because of your incredible training skills, nutritional advice, and positive attitude! I am grateful for your time and energy helping me achieve my goals, and maintain a healthy lifestyle as a working Mom.

    Your advice has really helped over the last months! I wanted to ask if you're going to do any blogs on getting rid of cellulite and reducing thigh fat.

    Response by Courtney Shelby on Jul 01, 2011

    Thank you for your question! You inspired me to write about cellulite in the July newsletter. Many women and men everywhere have a problem with cellulite, so I thought I would shed some light on the subject. Many thanks for reading my newsletter and posting a question. Stay healthy and positive!
