Hi, I'm Helena!
I am you…
I am just like every woman looking for a way to change my body and reshape my life. That's the path that lead me to create Life In Synergy. My genetics predisposed me to being overweight, and most of my family struggles with obesity. I come from a fitness and athletic training background that left me with bulky muscles and frustration, coupled with chronic back, neck and knee pain, not to mention thunder thighs. There is absolutely nothing worse than working out really hard and still feeling truly unhappy with your body!
Over the past 30 years, I have studied everything from Pilates, weight training, stretching and resistance training, to Chi-Gong, Chinese medical theory, tai chi, martial arts, yoga, various meditation disciplines, and cardio methods. Being an uber-geek, each time I studied a new discipline I would guinea pig it on myself to see what changes would occur. Nothing ever gave me the body and the life I was looking for, all I ever got was more frustration, and often more pain.
I knew that there had to be a better, smarter way. A workout that would change the shape of my body, but not leave me feeling beaten up. A lifestyle that didn’t require me to be a professional dancer to feel elegant, or a Zen Master to be centered. I wanted a way to be the weight that I desired and also be able enjoy cocktails and pizza! I knew there had to be a way to simplify all of the confusion, the feelings of good days vs. bad days, the endless roller coaster of emotions that struggling with fitness and health can bring! I wanted a way to have fun, to love myself and love my body without settling. I wanted to be able to help everyone I know get in great shape, not just a select few.
After over 30 years of research and study I finally have the answers! At 51, my body looks better than it did when I was 25 and killing myself to be in shape. Instead of beating myself up I have learned the science behind the mind-body connection. Which means I now have to work out a lot less. I strengthen the weak parts of my body and stretch the tight parts according to my synergy. By knowing about myself, I am able to cut my workout time in half and get twice the results all while ENJOYING my workouts!!! YES, I AM YELLING THIS OUT!!! Aren’t you ready to finally enjoy your body and your workouts?
"Imagine what your body will achieve! It’s time to say goodbye to the squats and lunges that leave you with sore knees. It’s time to let go of the endless hours of cardio and starvation diets. It’s time to live your beautiful life, with your best body ever. Life in Synergy is for all of you who want to look hot on the outside and feel hot on the inside! I cannot wait to see you succeed!"
