If you are like most moms I know, you have to deal with more than your average person. Balancing household, work, family and friends…and “Me-time”? That comes last. Often this means that those few extra kilo’s you would love to lose are yup, still there.
Kicking those kilo’s to the curb? It can be hard, take lots of effort and time. Most days, you’re just too plain tired at the end of the day to even think about doing excercise too!
I’ve been there too. And struggled. Now, I’ve discovered a way to do differently. The result? I can be fit & fabulous every day without working HARD or it taking a lot of TIME and ENERGY.

Fit and Fabulous – how I see it!
Fit is being at the top of my game energy-wise. I wake up full of energy, ready to take on the day & no matter what physical/mental challenges I take on, I can handle it with ease. No after lunch/dinner dips or collapsing exhausted on the couch. And definitely not having to tell my kids I’m too tired to chase them around the living room table! That’s what I mean by being fit. Fit is a state of mind & physical condition. It’s not a number on the scale, a clothing-size or whether my stomach is super flat & I can run a marathon. Although…if you want to train and go for a marathon, you go girl!
Fabulous is experiencing myself as looking and feeling amazing! It means feeling sexy and investing in myself!
When I’m at the top of my game and full of energy, I invest in myself and look and feel amazing! That’s what being a Fit & Fabulous Mom is all about! Sounds good right?
What’s the secret to being fit & fabulous every day?
Have FUN starting NOW!
That’s right…have fun getting as fit as you want to be & have fun investing in yourself and feeling sexy!
It would have been so nice if I had had someone to take me by the hand and show me an easier way to create this lasting balance in my life! No more drastic weight swings or crash diets. Simply enjoying and knowing what works for me to create the life I want to have.
This is why I’m sharing all the lessons and insights that I’ve had over the last two decades in a simple and practical program: Fit & Fabulous Moms.
Not into programs? No problem, I’m all about sharing! Check out my blog/vlog and inspiration pages for plenty of tips&tricks to help you get going on your own!
Questions after reading all of this? I’d love to hear from you!
I was born in La Conner, Washington & grew up travelling the world by boat. Homeschooled until age 9, I spent 8 years of my life in the South Pacific and attended my first school ever in French Polynesia.
At age 14 my mom, brother and I moved back California where I completed High School and University (UC Davis). I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and International Relations and did my Master of Science in International Developlement Studies at Wageningen University in The Netherlands. I designed and carried out my research amongst Bhutanese refugees in Nepal.
From 2012 onwards I followed several self-development and communication trainings and became a certified coach. I’m never done learning and am so excited to be contributing to the health of other amazing moms out there!
In September this year I began a track with other new Vitality professionals at the Center for Vitality in Leiden. The center is part of Leiden University. In this program I’m learning as a new businesswoman how to present myself (and the program) in a more attractive and comprehensive way & set my business up for success! More about the program (in Dutch) here: Startup Track – Center for Vitality
In October I started the educational program “Trainer Hormoonfactor” (Trainer Hormone Factor) at Sonnevelt here in The Netherlands. So exciting to learn about how our hormones affect so many different physical and mental aspects of our lives! Want to know more about it? (Website is in Dutch) Trainer Hormoonfactor
