Monica Menard

ProNatal Certified Coach

Beginning her fitness career over 15 years ago, Monica is dedicated to using her experience in exercise and effective communication to help anyone interested in making a positive health change in their life. She knows this can be very challenging as total health and fitness truly is a life style change, which is why her B.A. in Communication makes her an excellent life coach and teacher. Many factors of personal life influence health goals and achieving them and Monica is prepared to offer guidance and support in those areas as well.

What led her to focus on women’s fitness occurred after having two children of her own. There was a lack of education surrounding appropriate and safe fitness during the phases of pregnancy and postpartum wellness. This pushed her to empower those in their journey through mommy hood by providing individualized programs for all stages. Beyond providing these programs her goal is to pass on knowledge so clients can become their own trainers; with many skills including self correction, pain management, and modification and progression understanding. Fitness knowledge you will have for life!

It has been a joy to meet with new mothers and empower them by making fitness fun and doable with little ones. General fitness and weight loss clients are also encouraged. Free thirty minute consultations are available to find out more.
