Results speak the loudest! Over the course of my 6 month program with EMBODY Wellness I lost 30 lbs, 12 inches around my waist, and my body fat dropped from 26% to 16%. Not to mention my blood pressure lowered 20 points and my liver enzymes fell to normal range for the first time in years. I felt decreased stress and increased energy. My chronic psoriasis and digestive issues have improved and I have dramatically increased agility and flexibility. I look and feel the best I have since college.
I am truly a happier person after completing this 5 week program. I wasn’t eating fried food or snacking late into the evening. Turns out my food choices and food pairings were dragging me down and making me tired. I now menu plan for me and my family, I have an organized pantry and refrigerator, and I feel in control!
Christine pushed me and challenged me in ways far beyond just trying new recipes. I am more aware of what I put in my body and I’m more aware of how I treat myself. I learned a lot about food pairings and superfoods but also about self love. Feeling clear and energized and having reached my goal weight is empowering and I am very proud of myself.
She helped me to look deeper in why I had trouble meeting my goals on my own. Together we looked at my lifestyle including diet, exercise, and self care. Each week we tried new recipes and new workouts to see how my mind and body would respond. The recipes are fresh and fun and different and she helped me stay on track with weekly check-ins. Most importantly, she opened my eyes to a new lifestyle which has helped me feel more energetic, more aware of what I put in my body, and more confident. Christine’s background in yoga and meditation was inspiring as she pushed me to explore guided meditation on my own. It is clear she has the experience and passion to provide a thorough plan to help clients reach their goals.
I would recommend her to anyone. She has written goals and metrics to success and she pushed me to work hard and reach my goals! I now feel better than ever and more knowledgeable than ever about how and what I eat. My husband and kids have also benefiting from my experience. Everyone is eating healthier, we’re trying new recipes, and I’m excited to be in a bathing suit with my kids all summer because I look great. This is a hard program and my advice to anyone starting it is just to go all-in and give it your all because the results are priceless and eye-opening.
Christine is a beautiful person, inside and out. She is passionate about helping people, knowledgeable about the health industry, and committed to her clients. I never felt like I was alone on my journey, she was always with me with words of encouragement. She is patient, smart and also a mom!

From the moment I met Christine over the phone for our initial consultation, she really took the time to get to know me and understand my needs and motivations. In doing this she was able to tailor a program specific to me that really worked. My top goals upon starting my three-month program were to prepare and nurture my body for improved fertility and a sustainable pregnancy, as well as create healthy habits for a lifestyle of wellness. By the end of my program I felt healthier, happier, and equipped with the tools I needed to continue my new healthy lifestyle. Furthermore, one week before the last session of my program I found out I was pregnant! Now, headed into my second trimester, I am planning to continue seeing Christine throughout my pregnancy so that I can benefit from her incredible knowledge and guidance. I would recommend Embody Wellness to anyone I know who is looking to make a profound change towards a lifestyle of wellness!
The program allows me to go through my day without having to worry about what I can or can’t eat and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything. Not only am I accomplishing my weight-loss goals, but I am also getting into the habit of meditation, practicing yoga and trying new foods. I have more energy and endurance. This is not just a weight-loss plan. This is my new lifestyle!

Since working with EWC, I feel less bloated with IBS symptoms, my clothes fit better and I don’t crave old favorite foods that don’t do my body a favor. My top three goals upon starting the program were: 1. Learn healthy and sustainable habits for a lifetime of wellness 2. Clean, heal and strengthen my body through food, exercise and mind/body techniques 3. Integrate healthy/”clean” and nourishing changes to support and boost my immunity. Christine was able to help me work toward these goals by keeping me accountable! I needed the check-up or I would have slipped back to old habits. The sessions were full of recommendations and reminders. She was upbeat and supportive if I did slip up. I also loved how happy she was for me to contact her at anytime with questions. The most significant overall change has been that I notice food makes such a difference to my body. I’ve changed the way I’ll be living my life going forward from food but also from mental well being.

I remember first seeing an advertisement for EMBODY Wellness in a New York area magazine. It spoke to me. Hiring a holistic wellness coach sounded like a great fit for me, especially when I read that I could customize a program that suited my needs. I wanted to lose weight, feel energized, and learn to cook simple yet delicious and healthy meals for my family. I was looking for specific meal direction to build a healthy and sustainable way of living. EMBODY’s multi-
I appreciate all the tools you have given me and I can’t thank you enough for all your support and cheering me on. I have tried so many things and diets & this is by far has really changed my mind set with amazing results. It’s a new lifestyle that’s very obtainable with some dedication & planning. I’m not the 30 something gal trying to fit into a bikini in 3 weeks, but a 50 something woman just trying to regain my energy and body before I hit menopause. I’m making big strides & I feel AMAZING! You helped me map out a complete individualized regime of nutrition, vitamins, exercise, meditation and relaxation. Being very encouraging, supportive and informative on all of the above! I feel so blessed and happy you came into my life.
I came to EWC to feel energized, strong and toned, to gain a healthy lifestyle that is balanced and without deprivation and to increase my confidence in my body. It helped to have specific goals that I could reflect on and see progress toward throughout the program. My Embody program kept me focused on the specific goals we had defined together.The written program was great for me to refer back to, and the specific recommendations they provided, from recipes to workouts, really helped me feel supported and like I had tangible tasks I could do to pursue my goals. They checked in with me and helped me reflect on what was working and what wasn’t, which was extremely helpful!
The biggest change I noticed was with my energy level. I felt so energized and alive during and after the two week “reset” cleanse. I also lost three pounds in less than two weeks, my clothes fit better, and I feel like I’ve made changes to my lifestyle that I will keep for the rest of my life, particularly when it comes to a reliance on sugar to get me through the day! I definitely feel cleansed and that my body chemistry is changing for the better. My skin looks so good with the clean eating. EMBODY Wellness was so encouraging and supportive, but also served that crucial function of holding me accountable for the actions I need and want to take to meet my goals. Their emphasis on reflection and adding new things to try each time we met helped me push myself to grow and adapt throughout the program and beyond. I would recommend EMBODY to anyone who wants a supportive, nonjudgmental partner in making significant changes to increase your wellness. It was a pleasure to meet with Embody in their welcoming and soothing environment–a lovely change of pace from the day-to-day busyness of life with small children!

My top three goals upon starting the program were to integrate healthy and nourishing changes to boost and support fertility, to strengthen my body’s ability to deal with stress, anxiety and agitation and to learn healthy and sustainable habits. EMBODY helped me work towards these goals by giving me small manageable weekly plans (baby steps!). These changes do not need to be extreme. Subtle tweaks here and there can make a big difference. Since beginning the program, my body has actually started to crave healthy foods and activities. I thought my obsession with certain unhealthy foods was unbreakable, but after a slow progression towards eating the right things I was able to change my eating habits without feeling deprived. The most significant overall change has been practicing healthy habits. I cook consistently, do more yoga, meditate and make my personal wellness an everyday priority. All of these little changes add up to something meaningful. The coaches of EMBODY Wellness Company are thoughtful, sincere, knowledgeable and funny! They really care about their clients and are very thorough and nurturing. Habit changing and the feelings it can bring up are sometimes unpleasant, but the sense of humor makes it easier to get through. I would recommend EWC to anyone that feels overwhelmed with making lifestyle changes. They have a gentle approach. With weekly plans you are changing your habits before you even know it.

In working with EMBODY Wellness I wanted to get back to my pre pregnancy weight and to learn sustainable healthy eating habits. EMBODY made learning what constitutes a healthy food and how to properly read a nutrition label fun! They taught me everything from amazing workouts to easy and delicious recipes anyone can make. I saw a tangible difference in my energy and positive feelings about myself. My whole family benefits as I now incorporate superfoods in just about everything we eat and drink. I can now prepare quick, healthy meals which is a necessity as a new mom with little free time. I eat well at just about every meal, which means my baby does too. And believe it or not my husband loves my new cooking skills! The Founders actually EMBODY Wellness in all aspects of their lives from work to friends to homemaking to being an amazing mothers and wives. They do it all! My coach was a positive and energetic life force but also had realistic applications of wellness to specifically fit your life and needs. They are always there for you as a mentor or listening ear whether you need to know which type of bean to get at the grocery store or helping you overcome your fear of a new workout class by going with you. I recommend EMBODY to anyone who wants to make a change no matter how large or small, young or old, or has a specific goal in mind, like I did! They will get you there!
Jenny, New Mom
My top three goals upon starting the program were: 1.Get back to pre-pregnancy weight 2.Ease joint and back pain to keep up with my daughter 3. Feel energized. EWC was able to help me work toward these goals by giving me confirmation on what I was doing right and gentle guidance on what I was doing “wrong”. She gave me new tools and guidance around supplements, superfoods, and paring. I learned new exercises to regain muscle tone. I feel excited about being in even better shape post baby than I was before! So far: 2 inches off my waistline, 1 inch off my hips and I’m down about 8 pounds. I’m going to keep going and lose another 10 pounds. Christine is graceful, calm, knowledgeable, and experienced. I like that she’s a yogi herself and that she has been there, done that- bouncing back from childbirth, and she’s in great shape. I would recommend Christine to my yoga students and friends.

My top three goals upon starting the program were: 1. Create healthy and SUSTAINABLE habits for a lifestyle of wellness for you and your family. 2. Energized by a healthy lifestyle so that you are an even better parent, mom, wife, ME ☺. 3. Reduce mindless eating. Christine was able to help me work toward these goals by listening to me from every angle of my life; from my childhood, my current struggles and my concern for future struggles. My biggest success was learning healthy alternatives to the foods I loved and learning about myself and my inner struggles I didn’t even know I had. I also did lose some weight without feeling deprived. And, discovered some great resources to help me succeed as I move forward on this journey on my own. The most significant overall change I have noticed has been realizing my self worth. That it’s okay to put me first. And to really sit down and prioritize my life and do the best I can to stick to it.
Christine is such a kind soul and genuine teacher. While I am very new to holistic health ideals, she was very patient and non judgmental about my journey to finding what worked for me. The positive energy and teaching me that these foods I never even knew existed tasted delicious, made me not afraid to try different things and step outside my comfort zone to break my bad habits and replace with good ones. I would recommend EMBODY/Christine to anyone who needs to create a healthy balance in their life.
Living healthy should be a priority and Christine helped me realize that by teaching and encouraging in a genuine and patient manner. While I did not lose the weight I was hoping to, I took away SO Much more than I thought I would. I have been very pretty focused since our last session ended and feel good about my journey to living a well balance holistic lifestyle for me and my family thanks to Christine’s guidance.
Natalie, Mom and Jewelry Designer
My top goals upon starting my EMBODY Wellness program were to feel energized and balanced, integrate healthy eating into everyday living, and feel more at peace with my fertility struggle. EMBODY helped me work toward these goals by educating me on healthy food choices and food shopping habits, teaching me the importance of meditation and yoga on a daily/weekly basis, and by giving me an understanding of the mind-body connection and how it can make you feel more grounded and at peace in your daily life. I have experienced profound change in my everyday food choices and I have a more positive approach to diet and body management. I would recommend EMBODY to all of my girlfriends who are trying to lose weight after having a baby as well as those struggling with fertility! They are lovely, kind, calming, smart, inspiring… They not only teach you about how to live healthier, they care deeply about your success and how you feel throughout the process. The most important thing for me was infertility diet management when going into the program, and what I didn’t expect was that I not only felt better physically but mentally as well.

Embody Wellness Company helped me add superfoods to my diet and gave me amazing recipe inspiration that helped me add more plant based goodness into my routine. They inspired me to purchase a Vitamix and it has changed my life!! I’ve been cooking more for my family, enjoying morning antioxident packed smoothies and making amazing sauces, soups and dips. Their coaching and suggestions on eating whole, real foods has made me feel energized and my abs and skin look better! My entire family (husband and twin girls) thank you too! We are all having so much fun working to EMBODY Wellness throughout our lives. I am so excited to share what EMBODY does as a brand ambassador.

Working with EWC on a personal level has helped me so much on so many levels. Stephanie’s guidance and support has been critical on my journey towards health. Holistic nutrition is wonderful because it goes way beyond food and supplements and helps one organize strategies to find balance, joy and fulfillment in life. It’s a very well rounded program and covers areas of not only physical wellness, but also lifestyle and emotional well being. I have learned so much from Stephanie and feel she is incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend working with Embody Wellness!
Natasha Kubis, Acupuncturist
I have had the pleasure of working with EMBODY Wellness personally and professionally over the last several months and it has been an incredible experience. Being a partner in wellness has been wonderful as we have been able to holistically cover clients, share insights on protocols and create optimal treatment programs. Working with Embody has maximized results for our patients, helping them reach their health goals. The feedback from my clients has been great. They are professional, communicative and well organized and so incredibly lovely!
Natasha Kubis, Acupuncturist
I had the best time at Embody Wellness’s bootcamp session! These girls really know what they’re doing. They organized a fantastic group of women who were all fun, friendly, smart and motivated to get a good workout on. The personal trainer who lead the session was a perfect fit for the group: no matter what your level, you got an excellent workout but never felt pushed to the point of over doing it. I would typically never participate in something like this but I had a hunch Christine and Stephanie would provide an awesome experience (they always do!) and I was right! Fresh juices, healthy snacks and nutrition tips at the end made this something so worth while to squeeze into my jam packed day. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting to actually enjoy their workout – imagine that :).
