How long have you been putting yourself on the back burner? Probably a long time.
You're struggling to even use your Peleton consistently and that's right in your house, so needless to say, spending hours in a gym just isn’t a luxury that you have time for (or interest in).
Meals are more about getting something fast and easy on the table than making sure they support your weight loss goals.
You care about what your kids eat, so dinners are usually decent, but the meals where you only have to worry about yourself? HA! Skipping meals, grabbing whatever is within reach, generally just not giving AF about what you're putting in your body.
The demands of working, raising kids, just life, in general, leave you exhausted. By the time the day ends, you're not up for much of anything besides crashing on the couch for some mindless tv and snacks (always snacks.)
You love your job, your kids, your spouse...you just don't really recognize that woman staring back at you in the mirror and you certainly don't love the way you've been feeling the last....long time.
You’ve tried everything.
Whatever someone recommends in a FB group, you'll give a shot.
Supplements, products, detoxes, challenges, I name it, you've tried it.
Sometimes they worked, at least for a hot minute. But they sucked & you felt like crap so it didn't last long. And then the weight came back, like it always does.
You’re tired of not lasting more than a few days on a diet or workout program before falling off the wagon. Of feeling like you're good for a couple months and then life gets in the way and you're back at square one.
Why bother spending every last ounce of time, energy, or willpower on the next attempt if you're just going to end up gaining the weight back?
You want real, lasting results. And you don't want to be miserable while you achieve them. (Is that so much to ask, really?)
The things you've been doing are not what you actually need to do to start feeling better & losing weight for the last time.
Being able to wear anything in your closet instead of just the 4 things you've been cycling through the last few years?
How good it would feel to actually believe your husband when he complimented you?
Eating normal meals with your family and still reaching your weight loss goals?
Going out on the boat or on vacation and not stressing about how you look in your bathing suit or comparing yourself to your friends?
How much more you could get done at work if your energy didn't plummet everyday around 3pm?
If the weight you've struggled with for so long was GONE FOR GOOD?
You can have all these things. A lot sooner & easier than you think.
A few years ago a client told me that when she first met me, her first thoughts were, “what does this skinny b*tch know about my struggles?”
It still makes me chuckle but I get it. You may have thought the same thing.
Even though I've figured this stuff out now & devoted my career to helping other women do the same, it wasn't always this way.
In fact, I know very well what it’s like to put all your other responsibilities before yourself because you want to do a good job and make everyone happy.
Lemme tell you a little about me:
I discovered my love for the gym in the early 2000’s because it allowed me to get exercise without being on a sports team (where my lack of athleticism was on display for all to see.)
It was something I could do just for me and I loved it. It’s a big factor in how I ended up majoring in Exercise Science at Boston University.
Along with college came the typical unlimited ice cream and cereal in the dining hall, meeting boys and eating late night pizza, studying (and partying) instead of going to the gym.
The net result at the end of freshman year?
Oh just the ol' Freshman 15 x2.
After college I struggled with binge eating, ups and downs with my weight.
Each time I gained, I’d make some desperate attempt to lose it FAST: restricting & eliminating foods, diets like Whole30, Paleo, Intermittent Fasting, even a (very brief) raw diet. I tried a Master Cleanse, for Christ's sake.
Despite all my knowledge and experience I was still grasping at straws.
I’ve come a long way from outgrowing my "fat pants."
I eat foods that are good for me AND that I enjoy, every single day.
I know how to put together meals that support my health, fuel my activity level, and leave me feeling awesome.
I don’t restrict or eliminate any foods and I indulge in moderation, without guilt.
I workout because it's who I am, not because I have to.
I know that one slip up won’t do a damn thing to hurt me and I treat myself with compassion.
I have mastered the basic skills that will allow me to maintain a healthy weight for the rest of my life.
This is the same success I want for you. And it’s exactly what our clients achieve:
"I have been quite impressed with the education of the program & how it has helped me to refocus on my food intake and exercising. Esther has been the most committed, motivational coach that one could have. I am loving the way my clothes are fitting me now and I love the compliments that I'm getting.Thanks to Esther, I'm where I want to be."
- Yvonne M.
"I started working with Esther because I needed help with my nutrition. She is an excellent listener, responds to all my messages, and she always offers excellent suggestions. She is also ALWAYS positive, even when I'm not! I eat a much more healthy diet, and I feel better about myself now. You will love working with Esther!”
“Esther provided the tools to make real change in my life. She provided the workouts, nutrition info, and ways to incorporate positive change in my life. All of that along with the knowledge and encouragement to make it happen.”
- Maureen W.

Not a lot of coaches understand that it can be hard to say “no” to others in order to focus on yourself. But we get it. You are not alone!
The truth is, we weren’t able to stop experiencing the high-highs and low-lows of our weight until we realized how much our health and happiness spilled over into every other aspect of our lives!
At the end of the day, we know where you are coming from because we are you!

Those 12 weeks came and went and I realized I was a different person than the one who had started on this journey. It's the best decision I ever made.
Esther is so much more than a trainer at this point. She is a confidant, a shoulder to lean on, and a friend. She goes above and beyond to keep me on track and she gives the best advice when I'm in a panic over all of life's worries. I am so thankful for this woman and her unwavering support.”
