Knowing what is important to you and why. Whatever your health, diet and fitness goals may be, I will simplify your journey to help you make it happen. It is my belief that exercise and a healthier diet can be fun and rewarding with the right guidance and an open mind!
Are those voices in your head kind, or critical? Do you believe in your goals or doubt yourself? I strongly believe that permanent change can only happen when we change our wiring and it’s an inside job. Some say it’s too scary, I say get honest. I want to influence you to embrace the inner work so that you can be free of the repetitive struggle.
We all have them. Some make our life better, while others work against us. Once we accept that what we’re doing (or not doing) is making us miserable, we need to dig in, find the facts, and choose some replacement behaviors. I will be a judgement-free support for you, while we get you comfortably uncomfortable. Let’s tweak some stuff so you can quit beating yourself up!
This isn’t about perfection or deprevation, it’s about small changes that will make you feel better so you can live better. Good health isn’t owed to us, and neither is a lean body. Like anything we want to make better, we have to first pay attention. I want you to get curious, experiment with food, and examine your beliefs about weight loss so food doesn’t have to be the enemy anymore.
If this word brings up anxiety or guilt for you, it’s time to change that so you can move forward with your health goals. I promise that if you come with your mind open, you can learn to love exercise! I will teach you safe and effective movement so you can gain confidence enough to go to any gym without that feeling of insecurity. Side note for extra motivation: Exercise is a prescription for almost all things health! Such a win!
People tell me their biggest fear about the gym is "looking stupid". The good news is, confidence and knowledge can be learned!
I AM TRAINING WITH PASSION
Making it through my own struggles has made me passionate about helping others.
My name is Robin McIntire.
If you struggle with your body image, your weight, or even just being stuck in your life, I want to remind you that you are not alone and that there’s hope for you to feel differently.
My journey isn't harder than that of anyone else, I just like to share it as a reminder that we can come out stronger than we ever thought possible. Overcoming is something that we all must experience and each of us have our unique journey of (emotional) survival.
The two most impactful things in my life that I had to overcome were losing my mother at age 10 to suicide, and getting myself into a nice little eating disorder in high school.
Both carried so much fear and uncertainty.
The love of family and friends kept me moving forward after my mother died and I feel grateful to this day that I don't remember feeling guilt or blame.
Being bulimic, however, created secrecy and self loathing that was unforgettably horrid. (I've always believed it was the keeping of the secret that brought the strongest shame and loneliness).
I knew I needed to get help but was too embarrassed and fearful. So fearful, that I went about it on my own (NOT recommended!)
With God on my side, and some environmental factors in place, over time, I was able to let go of the behaviors and heal.
The clencher was sharing with people I trusted; when I brought it into the light, I had more peace and accountability. Speaking it gave me room to heal.
Going from self-loathing to self-loving is so incredibly powerful. I want to lead others to do their inner work with hope and without judgement.
Desperately wanting to become a stronger, more confident person is a good thing. So is wanting to take control of your health.
I want to be the bridge that can help connect you to your own answers so you can start really living.

We are all each others teachers.
(Click here to watch video) Mornings can feel rushed and out of control so quickly, and breakfast can either be tossed out altogether, or it can be a side-gig on the fly, with common processed food that has very little nutritional value. The donuts, danishes, and drive-thru items every once in a while aren’t a[…]
“As soon as ______________, I’ll start my fitness and weight loss journey.” Sound familiar? You know that changing things up is a must if you don’t want to accept what’s happening with your body and your health, but life just won’t slow down and give you the time. But here’s the truth: you[…]
What’s the number one reason we should exercise? I say it’s because we can. We’re capable, and it’s a gift, that’s why. There are many great reasons to exercise, but what if we just look at this one reason? My heart keeps telling me I need to share this because I think we all need[…]
This week, I’m experimenting and being a little more spontaneous with what time I choose to work out. I just had a thought as I was exercising at an unusual time of day for me; I need to share my answer to a question that I’ve answered for many clients. What’s the best time of[…]
Let’s talk about making negative statements vs. asking empowering questions. This has become one of my favorite and most helpful life lessons; it’s great for keeping us out of the victim mentality and into taking responsibility for our lives. Awareness is always the first step, so here’s my first question; Do you make negative statements[…]
Healthy Habits can become automatic, just like brushing your teeth. Habits. We have healthy ones that serve us and others that absolutely don’t. When we admit which is which and commit to change, it’s only crazy-hard if we choose to see it that way. (Yep, I’m pulling the Mindset card!) I believe that when we[…]
