Real fitness is giving yourself the power
to live in the body of your choice.
Cassandra's understanding for healthy living began in childhood, where her parents
stressed an active and health conscious lifestyle early on. Cassandra carried this healthy
foundation throughout her adult life, becoming a competitive runner, swimmer, cyclist
and accomplished equestrian.
Now, a certified strength and fitness coach, Cassandra incorporates her own passion for
health and fitness with a professional culinary education from the world famous Cordon
Bleu School of Culinary Arts to educate and empower others to eat, exercise and live
better. "Real fitness is giving yourself the power to live in the body of your choice."
Cassandra says, "Rebuild your body from the inside out - food to activity, activity to
fitness, fitness to lifestyle. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was the perfect body.
Small everyday changes turn into one big lifestyle shift."
Cassandra's fitness philosophy is broken down into a simple equation, fitness = activity.
"Walk your dog, throw a ball with the kids, ride bike, go to the park and play on the
jungle gym, GO PLAY!!" With the belief that real everyday fitness can be achieved
outside the gym just as well as out, Cassandra encourages her clients to trade in the gym
memberships for a good pair of walking shoes and hit the pavement. She insists that
wellness and shortcuts do not mix, as her "Healthy for Life" mentality require simple and
solid actions and changes in ones lifestyle, not a quick fix. Cassandra believes that
wellness is about empowering the individual to make the right choices for themselves, and
not relying on diet drugs, plans, and point systems to make the real changes in one's
"In order to change the way someone behaves, you have to change the way in which they
think first. Once the opinion has been changed, the habits will follow."
