“I am so so so happy to have worked with Angie! She seriously changed my entire outlook on a healthy lifestyle. I never thought that I could lift weights and I genuinely struggled to motivate myself to workout consistently. I slipped into unhealthy habits when I went to college and Angie helped me find my way back and actually become a stronger version of myself.” - Sahana Heiderscheidt
“I don’t even know where to begin!! If I could only say one thing it would be to just invest in yourself with Angie and watch your life and the lives of those around you grow and benefit from those changes as well. I have come to realize Angie truly cares & gives 110% to the client. She is observant, actively listens and recalls details from conversations that I had forgotten I mentioned or did not think important at the time. She pays attention to those details and sees the importance in them. Angie addresses the person as a whole. She addresses more than the physical and nutrition, she also addresses emotional health and habits. Angie seeks to help make positive changes that will last and grow over time. She is truly invested in your personal journey of growth, whatever that growth you decide should be. She is the best investment a person can make in themselves.”- Keven Hamlet
“I had known Angie for years- she was the first fitness coach that I met when I moved to Portsmouth, and I loved taking her group exercise classes. Fast forward 15 years later, inspired by her posts on social media, I thought to myself… I think that she can help me. Not that I was a train-wreck or anything, but just that I was STUCK and pretty heavily stuck in my life. My diet was sporadic, stress levels were enormous, I wasn't sleeping at night, yet at 3pm every day I could fall asleep standing up. I lived on coffee and bad adrenaline, yet was too tired to work out! 90 days with Angie and THAT ALL CHANGED...seriously. It was the whole holistic approach of learning to "know" myself, and hear what my body was telling me. We changed diet, re-framed my mindset on working out and uncovered too many things to mention that were deep rooted and the actual catalyst of me being stuck in the first place. While challenged at times during my 90 days, my favorite thing was that I NEVER, EVER felt judged by Angie. I was constantly supported by her, and eventually started feeling like she was with me, watching my back, all the time. She hears things that no-one else picks up on, she wants the very best for each of her clients, and I know that we just tapped on some major stuff during my course, so she will be stuck with me again soon to take me to the next road. It was the BEST thing that I have ever done for MYSELF, and it was all because of Angie.”

“Thank god for people like Angie. I am proud of who I have become through my journey with working with Angie. I was fighting for many years with depression and anxiety. I had a couple of traumatic things that had happened in the last nine years. My father passed away and my marriage was falling apart. I had hit rock bottom. I have been fighting this fight inside me. Making myself sick. I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis. I wanted to seek a different approach instead of going on medication. I wanted to handle this naturally. I reached out to Angie. Angie has helped more in one month than 5 years of therapy. Today, I actually for the first time after our coaching call felt free, confident and I felt so good inside and out. I am a stronger and better person because of her guidance and coaching.
Also, in November of 2016 I had knee surgery. After the surgery the pain was worse. I couldn't even do a jumping jack without severe pain. I wanted to heal myself with food. Angie has CHANGED MY LIFE from the INSIDE OUT. With her education and many degrees and certifications in health and wellness, I was able to run my first 10K race since my knee surgery.”

I have always been someone who has exercised regularly. I thought I knew it all. I didn’t.
I expected that I would learn some things about exercise and perhaps some things about nutrition. Did I expect to completely change my attitude towards food, stress, wellness? No. Did I expect to shed bad habits and attitudes? No.
Well that’s what happened. Plus, I had a lot of fun doing it. Angie is terrific to work with. Each week we explored new territory. My only regret is that I didn’t do this before.
The numbers speak for themselves. 13.5 pounds lost. 3.5 inches off my waist. 1 inch off my hips, arms and thighs.
The important thing is that I am on the right track to continue moving in a positive direction.

“Angie is a knowledgeable and experienced personal trainer and a warm and supportive health and wellness coach. She focuses on helping people take small but strategic steps toward better health rather than count calories and lose weight. She is dependable, patient, flexible, and genuine.
I’d recommend health & wellness coaching to anyone who is willing and open to grow, stretch, and push themselves to live up to their fullest potential and live their highest vision. I would recommend Coaching with Angie to absolutely everyone- And believe me, I do! Angie is an inspiration. Her love of life is nothing short of incredible. Her belief and drive is infectious, her energy is incredibly positive and her sincere appreciation for you and her desire to help is felt and heard through every coaching phone call.”
- Kelly Hurrell
I came to Angie after a period of darkness and feeling like I’d lost myself in the craziness of life and kids and work. She immediately met me where I was at, held space for me to put words to my challenges and goals and gave me a sense of hope that there was a way forward. While I’ve worked with trainers and nutritionists and therapists at various times over the years, no one had ever put the pieces together to help me achieve all of my goals—body, mind and spirit. Angie gracefully worked from all of these angles and more. She took the time to deeply understand my story through insightful questions and generous, whole-hearted listening. From there, she planned our sessions with incredible care—always finding a way to bring new light and understanding to pieces of myself and tweaking food and exercise as needed. Within just a few weeks of working with Angie people in my life noticed a difference in the way I walked through the world. I am happier, more confident, stronger, more energetic, and more patient with myself and others. In 90 days, I ended up losing 23 lbs. while never feeling hungry. In addition, I gained a sense of peace around food I have never known. I’m still a work in progress, but I now have tools to carry me to the next level. Angie is the real deal—an intuitive teacher and guide through whatever challenges you are facing. Working with her is the best gift I’ve ever given myself, and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

I have to say, that I didn’t think I needed a coach, but over the last few years things weren’t falling into place like they had before. Though I had lost my life-balance and my discipline seemed to be gone, I knew Angie could help me get it back on track after speaking with her.
Angie’s knowledge, professionalism, ability to listen and give the right amount of feedback was obvious to me right away.
Angie took the time to understand, what I wanted and what I was struggling with to build a plan that fit my needs. When I started working with Angie, I couldn’t do a single push-up and only 15 sit-ups. I blamed my job, my injuries and travel for getting me out of shape and not being able to get back into shape. Angie helped me to see that "I"controlled that… all of it. Not just my physical discipline, but mental and emotional discipline as well. One by one, I began to gain that control back and began putting the balance I needed back into my life.
As I write this, I just finished my 36th workout after I began working with Angie. I did over 50 push-ups, benched 200 lbs., can do over 50 sit-ups without stopping, etc. and this was just part of the workout. I've lost an inch+ off my waist and have tons more energy.
Angie helped me to find;
My Drive from my Soul
My Passion from my Heart
Discipline from my Mind, and
Opportunities in Everything Around Me!
I highly recommend Angie to anyone who has a goal they want to achieve, weight they want to lose, muscles they want to be stronger or maybe even to check off an accomplishment on their bucket list like running a marathon, etc. Angie is phenomenal and can change your life like she changed mine! Even if you’re like me and don’t think you need a coach, Angie can make you better than you ever thought you could be.

Angie helped me spiritually and physically. She guided me through an elimination diet and helped me come to terms with some major changes that were happening in my life. Angie believes in healing the whole self, not just the physical body. I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through some of the challenges I was facing without her. She helped me achieve managing my anxiety which I took medicine for every single day. The coaching she has given me and the tools to succeed has allowed me to gradually come off of ALL meds. Under my doctor’s care and hers I’ve never been so clear minded. She is a beautiful person, even after our sessions ended she continues to check in on me to see how I’m doing. She’s been an amazing support system. She has a personal training background as well which through movement I found even more balance through her expert guidance. She is extremely knowledgeable with the body and how it physical moves. I’ve never been so clear minded but also so happy with my workouts as she guided me with what I needed to add or decrease to gain my optimal health. She listens and retains from previous coaching calls things that I totally didn’t even pay attention to. But then she makes a suggestion around it and creates gentle habit change around the obstacle and it just naturally happens. Her ease of coaching really made me feel like we were connected in a way that I feel I have known her my whole life. She believes in me and sees things in me that I would have never even thought about.

“The biggest changes I have noticed since beginning the program have been my attitude, diet and exercise. Angie helped me turn my inner negative into positive, peaceful energy to be able to be an active participant in healing my life. My gut health has improved, I am more grateful and I’m beginning to lose weight. Angie has this sensitivity chip in her that she connects in a way that is magical. She was always sensitive to my needs, a person who used her knowledge to help and heal my wounded spirit and body. She helped me see how my disharmony was harming my spiritual and mental well-being. Angie is a wonderful, kind spirit but someone who will get real with you to help you heal and create change in the most positive way. She helps you grasp your inner strength to help free yourself from your habits that not necessarily benefit you. She creates the foundation to succeed. Angie helped me put the lost puzzle pieces together to grow and heal from a dark space. Her nurturing skills allowed me to find the inner strength to empower my growing to complete health. I am now celebrating my triumphs and thriving all because of her guidance and deep understanding.”

Maybe it was happenstance, perhaps intuition, perhaps the universe’s intention, but I was drawn to Angie and her coaching for reasons unclear to me. At our first meeting, I wasn’t able to clearly articulate what it was that I was looking for. I knew I wanted/needed to be stronger. I expected I’d get a good strength workout and maybe dial in my nutrition a bit. What I got was that plus so much more. The winter would come and some challenges would arrive in my life that truly put my strength to the test. All of Angie’s coaching, the tools she gave me were not just used, but proved to be my lifeline through a tumultuous time. Meditation, positive thinking, letting go, to name a few. These tools helped and continue to help give me the strength I need to navigate difficult waters. Angie is motivating, patient, knowledgeable and kind. She has a trusting way about her that is non judgmental and makes you so comfortable to share thoughts and concerns with. To say she has found her calling is an understatement. The value she brings is undeniable. It’s truly an investment that you will use on an ongoing basis in ways you won’t be able to see on Day 1. Working with Angie was one of the best decisions I ever made. Thank you, Angie, for your coaching, your patience, kind spirit and continuous motivation. Practice makes progress.
