FACES & STORIES OF HEALTH AND HAPPINESS
For the restless and frustrated soul, Shanna's 7 day program will quickly bring peace not only to the body but also the mind. She is thorough, each post is engaging, and her knowledge and passion stir up the motivation and eagerness that lie below your surface. She teaches you to think more than just "food" but health overall with the body, mind, and emotions. You will discover you are enough to overcome cravings and mental stumbling blocks so that you can heal your relationship with food and discover what it truly means to feel good. I've tried them all... every diet you can think of and this program was the first time I felt HOPE. I found that not only did I kill my addiction to sugar and lose 5 pounds, but most importantly I saw the ability to sustain and continue in my newly discovered health. This doesn't end at 7 days... It's been 5 weeks now and I am still drawing from the strength, balance, a stability that Shanna taught me. I can't thank you enough!!
For being an anxious person who was frustrated with my body, I needed a body and mind check. I happened to come across Shanna’s detox post and knew I had to do it. It was a matter of actually doing it. I had Shanna for a personal trainer forever ago and will never forget the impact she had on me. I needed that again... so I went for it. Seven days later I am more aware of what I’m putting in my body as well as how to treat my body. Down 6 pounds in one week isn’t bad either! Thank you for this great community of health!
Enlightened Nutrition was just the program I needed to reset. I had started feeling like I didn't have control of myself, when I very well do. This program got me excited about eating whole foods and working out again. I felt so much better by the end of the program, it spurred me to want to continue on. I found a workout program that I am enjoying now and am motivated and feeling more empowered to fuel my body in the right way. I also feel more knowledgeable about different foods, and that allows for more flexibility in eating healthier. And the recipes Shanna provides -- so good! Thank you Shanna for this wonderful program and the motivation & empowerment it gave me, and continues to give me! Such a great community within the group, and Shanna is available for any questions and is so motivating throughout and after!
I never thought that I would actually be able to see results in such a short amount of time and was completely shocked that I lost 5 pounds and 2 inches off of my waist in only 1 week! I was also able to pinpoint which of the foods that we had eliminated during the detox were actually negatively affecting my body. This program has made me more aware of my body and more in tune to how the foods that I eat truly make me feel.
I felt amazing after completing this program! I was nervous that the amount of food would not be enough but I was so wrong. I had so much energy and was always satisfied. The recipes were great and easy to throw together. My cravings for sugar were gone!
Before participating in the Enlightened Nutrition program, I was much more self-critical and had no realization of how my body is actually designed to feel. This week long journey has helped me to gain a new mindset on what the possibilities of my health hold and that I absolutely deserve to feel good every single day. Enlightened Nutrition puts the reins in your hands, YOU decide how you want to feel based on how you treat your body and mind. I would definitely recommend this program others! This is a great way to jumpstart your health journey because in such a short time (one week) you will feel so much better and begin to develop healthy habits that you can continue to build on.
As soon as I began working with Shanna Bennett I realized that she was different. She helps you focus on every aspect of life: relationships, spirituality, fitness, nutrition, occupation, family, etc. She really opens up the door to let you dig deep into yourself and find the root of your issues, if you have any. For me, I was having constant headaches and stomach aches and I wasn’t seeing results working out on my own. But, not only did I rid my stomachaches and headaches, I also lost about 10 pounds. I have made a complete 180 with my life in the last 6 months. I have never been happier with my life, my body, my fitness, my relationships with family and friends, my nutrition, my health, my confidence... Just everything is better thanks to Shanna. I owe it all to her!
I truly was unsure, anxious and downright scared when we were first starting out. I was unsure because you are younger than me. Wow! I learned you may be younger in years, however you are incredibly trained and have wisdom far beyond your years. I was anxious because I wondered if I had made a good investment, but as our time together progressed, I watched my investment grow double and triple fold.
My coach (shout-out to Shanna who is a bright light in this world!) helps me establish my goals, remember my why, and stay on track through a variety of methods designed to help me feel empowered, capable and ready to reach the vibrant health I so long for. Following shoulder surgery in December, I was the weakest and most out-of-shape I had ever been in my life... and I can guarantee that if it wasn't for Shanna, I would have continued down the path of physical body-breakdown rather than making a commitment to myself to start rebuilding my strength TODAY (not tomorrow).
I want to thank Shanna for walking on this health journey with me. We connected through Facebook the fall of 2015 and I was sharing with her my food struggles and gut issues. We immediately connected because we had similar struggles. She has helped so much by walking me through the emotional and physical healing of my journey, and helping me to change my mindset. She always brought me back to the tools that would help me become stronger, reminded me to get centered, listen to my body, focus on self-love, and take it one day at a time.
For the first time in my life I'm feeling better and stronger.
Shanna is everything a coach should be! She's positive, empowering, leads by example and is one of the nicest and real people you'll ever meet. But she also makes living a healthier, happier life DOABLE. Shanna and her programs are completely approachable and deliver results. Through Shanna's programs, like Enlightened Nutrition, I've been able to return to making the choices that I know serve me best--and as a result, I've added more energy, vibrancy and overall well-being to my life. Whenever I feel like I'm starting to fall-off the wagon, I know I can look to Shanna to inspire and motivate me to live better! I highly recommend working with Shanna as a coach, or even just following her for day-to-day advice, tips and inspiration.
Absolutely loved this reboot! Helped me feel that I'm not alone in this clean eating journey, and I just love the community we have here. Helped cleanse my look at food in general and made me realize what foods my body doesn't do well with and which give me energy and joy. This is life giving!! The sense of renewal and peace is priceless. I have also seen clearer skin, less bloat and stomach issues, and just have been happier!! It's all in a simple, yet detailed plan that is doable! I tried several different ways of eating/cleanses, but this is the best I've found and how I like to eat on a regular basis. Highly recommend doing the cleanse and seeing where you'll go from there! You won't regret it. ♥️
This has been a great week, I’ve tried new recipes, loved them, and lost 10 pounds. I have taken several walks and feel the best I have in a long time. Thank you Shanna for this opportunity to change some eating habits, and encouraging more exercising. I still have a way to go, but this was a good jumpstart.
I just finished a week of detox with Shan and am planning on continuing another week. It has been a wonderful experience and I know that I will go back periodically and repeat it. I lost 8 pounds, my cravings are gone, and I have more energy. The recipes were filling and delicious so I never felt deprived, and I was excited to be fueling my body with healthy food. No self loathing or negative thinking when moving in the right direction! Shan was encouraging and supportive and always available and willing to answer questions and motivate, when necessary. Such a great plan!
This was such a great experience & exactly what I needed going into the holiday season...I struggled to cut out unhealthy foods because I work in the mall surrounded by food and the smell of freshly baked cookies from down the hall everyday! This program got me through the hardest week to cut it all out but I have yet to crave these unhealthy foods at all! So great to have more energy & feel good about what I am putting into my body! This is no longer just something I’m trying out but has become a lifestyle change for me, thank you so much!
I’ve done the 7 day detox twice now and have found it to be such a great way to reset when I’m feeling off track or just wanting a boost for my body and mind. The thing I love is that it’s so practical and it focuses on more than just food. It’s a whole body reset. Whenever I do this detox, I always have more energy, less cravings, and I sleep so much better. I am SO glad to have this in my health arsenal to come back to as needed. Thank you Shanna for being so dedicated to helping others!
It is because of Shanna's guidance that I am far healthier and stronger than I have been since my early 20's. She knows how hard to push or when to take it easy on me. Shanna is very knowledgeable about health concerns and if she doesn’t know the answer or is puzzled by a concern, she doesn’t hesitate to research and suggest new ideas. My husband is a recipient of this coaching as we both eat way differently than we did even two years ago. Her coaching is definitely an extension of who Shanna is and what she believes in. You will not find a more committed health coach anywhere.
In just one week, Shanna was able to make a difference in my day to day life and how I view many different aspects of my health! When I committed to joining a 7 day fitness and nutrition challenge lead by Shanna, I was not completely sure what I was getting myself into! Prior to day one, Shanna firmly explained that she would accept no excuses. As a proceeded through the 7 day program, I realized that all of the excuses I'd used in the past were really just that, excuses! I completed the challenge ,with few difficulties, following all guidelines, and, by day 2 or 3, I was already noticing a difference in my attitude, motivation, and energy levels. Shanna kept me accountable, which helped a lot, and also offered guidance in areas with which I was unfamiliar. She addressed all my questions and concerns in a timely manner, and offered real-life solutions for problems I encountered along the way. She was also quick to praise and encourage!
I loved working with her, and would recommend her to those just beginning their journey, those looking to add something extra to their already polished health plans, and all of those individuals in between!
When I met Shanna in December 2013 I really needed help to get my weight under control for good. For years I would do a really great job losing weight for a few months, and then spend the next few putting it right back on. I didn't know how to stop this vicious cycle.
She took the time and really taught me how to eat for my body and how to make the appropriate changes so they would last once and for all. I am now 25 pounds lighter and continuing to lose! I don't ever see myself going back to where I was, with all the positive changes I have made it's not even an option! I am so excited about my weight loss but honestly, I think I love all the other changes in my life that have come about since working with Shanna more. I no longer suffer from migraines, I sleep great, I do things for me, I have more energy, no more cravings for sweets, and I am truly HAPPY! Shanna was great at answering my many questions and was (and still is) super supportive throughout the Health Coaching program.
One day I really hope to inspire others like she has inspired me!
