Megan woke up one day, at the age of 25, weighing the most she’d ever weighed, and decided to make a change. She had never been active in her life, subsisting almost entirely on ramen and couscous. Her first discovery was CrossFit and through increasing her activity and following some better eating habits, she lost about 30 pounds.
After some time with no progress, Megan began to work with Precision Nutrition, learning some fundamental habits to support altering her diet. After hearing about WAG for over a year, she decided to take the plunge. She is now down 95 pounds total.
Although Megan enjoyed CrossFit, her real love is weightlifting and she has been a dedicated Olympic weightlifter for 2 years. During this time she has attained her USA Weightlifting Level 1 certification and opened the Traverse City Barbell Club in Traverse City, MI.
Learning how to use fuel as food, how to separate food choices from moral judgements, and how to moderate intake has literally changed Megan’s life. Looking back on her journey, she is so thankful for all the people that supported and guided her as she strove to become healthier and stronger.
Megan loves getting to know a wide range of people. Her ability to communicate broadly combined with her passion for knowledge and learning helps her be a strong, effective coach. She loves meeting people where they are in their journeys and helping them achieve their goals, no matter what they may be.
