Meet Gail

I’m Gail Cort and I am truly passionate about fitness. Although I teach a variety of clientele about the importance of a balanced lifestyle, I have always been drawn to the empowerment of women. When I see a middle aged women struggling to find balance and meaning in her life it motivates me to help them become happy – about their health, their bodies, and most importantly their lives as a whole. I have found that nothing empowers women more than taking control of their health and this is why I have developed this easy to follow program. With the help of a program tailored to your specific needs, my personal expertise, and the power that is already inside of you, you can achieve any goals imaginable.

Since this program is all about building a healthy relationship with yourself, I would like to let you know what I have discovered about myself throughout my own personal journey towards building and maintaining a balanced lifestyle.

I am not a super-human-fitness-lunatic that eats, sleeps, and breathes dumbbells, lettuce, and vitamins. However, I sometimes like to look like one.

I am not a fan of rules and believe they are meant to be broken. That is why I have spent a lifetime discovering how to break them without getting “fat”.
I LOVE food – pizza, cheesy omelettes, parfaits and cake.
I love to exercise to music that moves and motivates me.
I find pushing myself physically exhilarating, it gives me a strong feeling of accomplishment
I am 54 years old and a Grandmother, but that has not stopped me yet.
I was once an obsessive eater and exerciser. My personal journey involved learning how to stop obsessing, eat what I like, and workout less. I had to stop looking at training from a competitive point of view and start looking at it from a wholesome wellness point of view.

This is just a bare minimum of what makes me, well me. I hope to share more with you while we develop a relationship that will impact both of our lives. Through getting to know each other, we can figure out what works for you and change your life for the better.
