Transforming Lives, One Success Story at a Time

After 15 years of an active lifestyle, my wife’s debilitating illness led to disability. For 5 years, she struggled with her health, weight gain, and fading spirit. We tried various weight loss centers, but they only cared about money. Then, I heard about ‘The Biggest Loser’ Competition on the radio. I contacted Mikkie, who showed genuine concern. My wife’s physical and spiritual transformation began with her help. She didn’t win the competition, but she regained her life.


At 51, my health hit rock bottom – mobility lost, excruciating pain, and 280 pounds. Severe osteoarthritis fueled despair. Seeking change, I contacted Mikkie. No more fad diets, just tailored nutrition. I shed 20 pounds, added outdoor activity, and stayed committed. Weekly meetings and Mikkie’s support kept me motivated. Prioritized health over work, treasured mobility, and thrived. Then, a brain tumour diagnosis. Surgery and recovery in 30 days due to a healthier body. Mikkie’s guidance revealed body intricacies, fostering better choices. Now 207 pounds, on a path to a longer, healthier life.


Working with Mikkie has been a game-changer for me. Despite my severe health issues like fibromyalgia, I’ve shed 5kg and inches. Mikkie’s guidance improved my pain, sleep, and work prospects. Her tailored approach beats past nutritionists, considering my health and adapting swiftly. Her support is priceless.


I’ve taken on challenges with Mikkie, shedding inches and improving food choices. Mikkie’s tips for extra workouts are genius: squat in the bathroom, while waiting for the kettle, or during microwave time. I dropped 22.5 lbs in my last challenge and gained self-confidence. Eating right means no more packing my cupboards at work. Mikkie shares recipes and alternative nutrition and exercise options.

I gained unexpected knowledge about long-term health, understanding my body better, and focusing on the big picture. I’ve learned to enjoy healthier versions of my favorite foods and bake treats for myself and Mikkie. This approach makes me want to eat healthy daily. Mikkie’s personalized and flexible coaching stands out, tailored to my preferences and lifestyle. She supports mental health and motivates even during challenging times, creating a warm and welcoming coaching experience.
