BIO: Danielle Fagnant; PN Certified Coach 1, CPT

I joined Fitness Concepts in 2009, unfit and unhealthy and ready to make some changes. Within the first year I fell in love with group fitness and group trainings. Working out was the easy part, the food part is where I struggled. It started as baby steps as I started to learn about a cleaner way of eating from the trainers. This helped me dial into my lifestyle change and loose 50 pounds within my first year. I always took part in the short term challenges offered at the club throughout the years, however often struggled as the accountability that these challenges offered ended usually within 3-5 weeks. However I still succeeded in losing a total of 96 pounds before the birth of my daughter. Down the road, when I started to teach more classes and find another passion in CrossFit, I became much more strict with my nutrition. This resulted in too much of a caloric deficit for my level of activity and I found myself frustrated as I was trying to reach this "goal weight" and feeling like I was always hungry. I learned that too little can be a bad thing and what your metabolism actually needs to function. This is different for everyone. I spent a long time fixing my metabolism so that I could reach her goals while still being able to maintain my high level of activity. Through this time I realized that this was also the next step at helping other members reach their goals that they work out so hard for. Through Precision Nutrition, I not only learned about the science behind nutrition and metabolism, but also methods on how to coach various types of people with a wide array of goals. I looks forward to helping others learn what their bodies need in order to thrive. I believe that it's time that we work with our bodies instead of fighting against them to reach our goals.
