Cheryl has been coaching individuals on their nutrition for about a year and a half ever since after receiving her Precision Nutrition certification in 2017. She began working with close friends and family to offer simple nutritional advice, which evolved into becoming the on-site coach for her home CrossFit gym, CrossFit Des Plaines.
It all began in the Fall of 2016 when she met Becca, owner and head coach of Lifestyle Nutrition. Soon after, Cheryl sought Becca’s expertise to help her work on her own goals. Working with her not only allowed Cheryl to develop a healthier relationship with food, but also reach new levels of fitness with Becca’s guidance towards building strength and lean mass.
Moved by this experience, Cheryl made a career shift in 2018 to fully focus on coaching a variety of individuals–athletes, parents, professionals–by building healthy eating habits, and also changing their lives through their own relationship with food. Though a nutrition coach herself, she can’t deny that she doesn’t love her occasional slice of pizza from time to time!
