Hi, I'm Lynn!
I am an NASM certified nutrition coach, fitness nutrition specialist, personal trainer, International Federation of Bodybuilders professional athlete, and an all federation Competition Prep Coach. I am also enrolled in Integrated and Functional Nutrition Academy to obtain Integrated and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner (IFNCP) credentials.
I created Vital Nutrition and Fitness by Lynn to offer my clients a clearer pathway toward success. This process begins with an individualized approach to nutrition and fitness. In order to develop a customized plan, I must get to know each of my clients on a personal level.
I meet with each person to discuss their lifestyles, medical or orthopedic issues, favorite foods and ultimate goals. After that meeting, I put together a balanced nutrition plan and a progressive fitness plan specifically targeted to each client’s goals which can be accessed through a personal client portal on my free app.
As we go along, I make minor modifications to the plan as needed to ensure that you continue to make progress toward your personal goals. During this process, I teach my clients how to eventually incorporate the foods they enjoy while maintaining nutritional balance and still reaching their goals.

A Little More About Me 🙂
I began my fitness journey in 2008 while my late husband was deploying for a lengthy West Pac tour aboard the USS Nimitz. I thought it would give me something positive to focus on during his 14-month deployment. I had been a multi-sport athlete as a child and in high school, but I did not know anything about working out as an adult. But, with time on my hands, I went to the base gym on the Marine Core Air Station in Beaufort, SC, hopped on a treadmill, and began to people watch. I looked for the ones who seemed to be the fittest and started duplicating the exercises they were doing.
It only took about a week and I was hooked. I quickly started working toward becoming a personal trainer and while I was pursuing that certification, I became exposed to fitness and bodybuilding competitions. I have always been a competitive person so after attending a competition, I knew I had to give it a try! I gathered more information and soon after began my first competition prep. I learned how to pose and make my own suit on YouTube. In 2010, 10 short months after I started, I stepped on stage for my first National Physique Committee show. I placed 6th but realized I could do much better. I have continued to compete through the years and in 2012 I earned my professional status on my 6th show ever, just 7 months after my husband was killed. I have gone on to compete in several pro shows but have shifted my focus to guiding others for now.
Throughout my own fitness journey and the journeys of my clients, what I have discovered is that for most people, the vital piece of the puzzle that is missing is nutrition. I like to say that you can’t outrun your fork and it is very true! Although it seems like there is unlimited nutritional information available everywhere, in my opinion it can be confusing and contradictory. For this reason, I will be there to help you every BITE and step of the way!
Lastly, I have learned a lot as a military wife that has helped me in my life and my career: strength from within, compassion, diligence, independence, dedication, sacrifice, mental fortitude, motivation, time management, consistency, a sense of humor, determination, commitment, organization and empathy. All of which are crucial when guiding others through unfamiliar territory! My ultimate goal is to assist as many people as I can to a better quality of life through nutrition and fitness.

I am healthier today than I have ever been in my life.
There really are no words to describe my deep appreciation for all that Lynn has done for me. I am healthier today than I have ever been in my life. My blood pressure is down, my cholesterol is down, my weight is down, my body fat is down and my energy levels are up. She is an expert in her field. Do what she says and you will get results!
I highly recommend her services whether its a diet, workout, or general instruction on how to reach your physical goals.
I came to Lynn about 7-8 months ago and at the time I was working out everyday and had been for most of my life, but felt my nutrition was the missing piece of the puzzle for me to take my goals to the next level. After meeting with her and getting a diet together, we did a “test month” where we could get a baseline for myself, from there she made the proper adjustments to my meals and got me going in the direction that I wanted to be! I saw the effects shortly after, having more energy, better workouts, and overall confidence. Furthermore, I had Lynn write me some workout programs so I could get a different mix than what I had been doing, and I can say without a doubt that her workouts only magnified the results of the diet. They were well explained and easy to understand through her awesome app! I can’t thank Lynn enough for taking care of me! I highly recommend her services whether its a diet, workout, or general instruction on how to reach your physical goals. Thanks Lynn!

I am loving it! I have lost 11 pounds in 6 weeks and I feel great. This program is terrific. It is nice to have Lynn in my corner. I am able to send her messages and get quick responses any time I have a question or concern. She listens to my individual needs and has designed a program for me. It is nice to have a health eating plan that I can live with.
