About Kylie VandenBrand 

As an exercise nutrition enthusiast, I have always possessed a deep passion for health and fitness, even as a teenager. After graduating from high school, I decided to attend Grand Valley State University (GVSU), where I earned my BS in Exercise Science. My education allowed me to dig even further into the world of exercise science and nutritional counseling, which has helped immensely when safely and effectively training clients to become the best version of themselves. 

After college, I applied my fitness and nutrition knowledge to hospitals, rehab centers, and cardiac rehab clinics. During this time, I also taught group fitness classes in a Bootcamp setting and engaged in one-on-one personal training with clients of all activity backgrounds. I have worked with high school athletes looking to build muscle and endurance, senior citizens intent on boosting their mobility and quality of life, and every type of client in between.

My clients come from all walks of life but have one thing in common. They want a personal trainer who will work at their speed to give them the tools they need to improve their lives one nutritious meal and workout at a time. 

Apart from fitness training and nutritional counseling, I have been a competitive bodybuilder for nearly seven years in women’s physique. My experience has taught me unique skills in food manipulation, allowing for stellar results you could not otherwise experience with exercise alone.

Philosophy

I am a huge believer that nutrition is the main component to achieving your ideal physique in conjunction with a balanced strength and cardiovascular regimen. You can’t outwork a bad diet, and you can’t work and run effectively without proper nutrition. The same concept applies to your car, which you must feed with fuel for it to run. You do the same with your body, which is why nutrition counseling by a certified professional is paramount in achieving your body, health, and fitness goals.

What I Offer – Learn the Nutritional Practices of Sports Superstar

We see them on TV and in stadiums across the country. Whether they are playing football, basketball, baseball, or hockey, all these high-performance athletes have a distinct commonality. In order to achieve mastery in every game, they must eat properly. The right food eaten at the right time gives them – and you – a performance boost unlike any other. That is the science behind exercise nutrition.

Whether you are an experienced athlete, weekend warrior, or you find yourself getting back into the gym after a long time off, you deserve to learn how to eat like the pros. 

A one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition will never cut it. Our bodies are too different, and some people push their bodies constantly while others keep rather sedentary lifestyles. The good news is that anyone with a willingness to learn can gain insight into eating like their body depended on it.

With customized nutritional counseling, you will receive one-of-a-kind advice that is designed for your specific activity levels. These one-on-one personalized nutrition plans can be applied to your current lifestyle. Learn how to shop for the right foods to stock your fridge and pantry with healthy meal options that are ready at a moment’s notice. Find out how to navigate confusing restaurant menus so that you can make the best choices when eating out. And stop the anxiety whenever it comes to eating foods you’re unsure of, such as those prepared by others, so that you know what to eat and when for the best food choices. Does the entire concept of eating fill you with anxiety, because you don’t know how to eat to fuel your fitness journey? Not to worry! A customized plan is easy to follow and can help you achieve your personal goals!

You even have choices as far as how to implement your nutritional plan.

Some clients feel better when they are told what meals to eat. With these plans, there is little thinking involved. Simply follow the program and all your meals are planned out for you. This lets you focus on your workouts and other aspects of your life without worrying about making bad food choices. Before you know it, your health goals will begin coming into reach.

For those clients who want more flexibility, we offer a customized nutrition system that puts you in charge of meal planning. You will receive an approved food list that can be used at home and in restaurants. You will also learn how to count your macros so that you know which proteins, fats, and carbohydrates to eat at each meal to get the most performance. This is the concept most fitness professionals and sports stars use to get the most output from their bodies and achieve their fitness goals. This simple-to-use nutritional system will fuel your body for the level of activity you desire. When it comes to fitness nutrition, I have you covered!

While most diet plans are designed for those who want quick fixes and to be lazy, you will learn how to get maximum output for the foods you eat, so moving your body is recommended. Remember, you must put in the work for true results. With my nutritional advice and a regular fitness routine, your excellent results will show tenfold, guaranteed.

What Is Included in Each Customized Fitness & Nutrition Plan? 

The foods we eat contain a mixture of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Knowing which foods to eat, in which order, and when to eat them can be confusing for someone without a fitness and nutrition background. With a customized fitness nutrition plan, you will know what foods are best for your level activity, when to eat them, and how to get the very best results, whatever your goals happen to be. 

Nutritional supplements give your body what it needs that you can’t always get from the foods you eat. These could be powders, bars, vitamins, and other nutritional supplements that have been proven to work for your type of activity level. Many of the supplements I recommend have been used personally to fuel my fitness and bodybuilding careers. I will pass what I’ve learned and experienced in my own fitness journey to help you supplement your workouts so that you can take your fitness to the next level.

Are you looking to build muscle or enhance your endurance? Do you want to lose or gain weight? No two bodies are the same, and everyone has different fitness goals. You will learn how to use weights and cardiovascular exercise to push your body in ways you never thought possible. You may find yourself engaging in spin classes, leg workouts, arm workouts, back workouts, aerial yoga, Bootcamp group training, HITT, TRX, and many other routines. You will get insight into keeping a healthy mindset while checking your fitness goals. Every workout routine is tailored to your exercise background so that you can work at your own speed to facilitate the ultimate body, health, and fitness gains!

If at any time you feel stuck with your nutrition or fitness goals, you can contact me 24 hours a day, seven days per week. I can help you get back on track, no matter where you are along your fitness journey. I have been where you are. I’ve felt the frustration and confusion when it comes to the how of working out and they why of eating the right foods. In many cases, a few words and some honest advice is all it takes to get my clients back on track. Keep my number handy, and I’ll help you get the best from your nutritional counseling and personal fitness training.

In my experience, clients who come to me are gung-ho about getting their fitness and nutrition in order, but then life tends to get in the way. The hustle and bustle of life can derail even the most dedicated fitness enthusiasts. With weekly check-ins, you can keep your fitness and nutrition goals top-of-mind for the best results. You will be held accountable so that you don’t fall off track, and you’ll get to switch gears in case one aspect of your routine isn’t working as well as it should. Even the best sports athletes have a coach, someone to motivate them and keep them going at all costs. That’s what you’ll get with my expert nutritional counseling and personal fitness training.

Are You Ready to Take Your Fitness to the Next Level? 

Fitness and nutrition counseling can help you get the body you want and the levels of fitness you need to improve your quality of life, at any age. Many people join a gym like 24-Hour Fitness or Planet Fitness and attend occasionally. Many times, these individuals sign up and show up for a time, then fall off when life becomes too hectic. This is not the way to achieve physical fitness. 

The better way is to learn about your body and what foods you need to fuel your workouts. All those calories burned during your regular fitness regimen will be wasted if you don’t eat according to your personal goals. Many people fall short of their goals because they feel there is too much guesswork involved in what to eat and when. These individuals also may be engaging in the wrong workouts for the level of fitness they hope to achieve. Wouldn’t it be more helpful to have a fitness professional guiding you along your fitness journey? 

With my nutritional counseling and personal fitness training, you don’t have to engage in any guesswork. You don’t have to look at all the weights and strength building machines with confusion. Everything will become clear because you will have a roadmap to reaching your health objectives. Every aspect of your fitness and nutritional journey will be mapped out, ready for you to put it into practice. And, if you feel that any of your plan isn’t working as intended, you will learn how to switch gears to put your strength, endurance, and overall health into overdrive. 

Invest in yourself and finally reach your health, body, and fitness goals. With my nutrition counseling and personal training, you can finally see what you’re made of. 

Contact me today and tell me about your fitness goals, and I will design a customized physical fitness plan made just for you.
