“Joanna has been such a bright light in my life. She has brought me reassurance and comfort for who I am while offering encouragement and suggestions that are realistic and come from experience. She seems to know when I need words from her between appointments and truly cares. She has made me a better athlete and healthier in every way possible. If you could use improvement in any part of your health or life, I recommend sitting down with Joanna. You will not regret it! She is the true definition of a life coach. <3” – SS
I began working with Joanna a year or so ago after a stay in the hospital for kidney stones and an E Coli infection. I was concerned about what would best serve my nutritional needs and keep my kidneys healthy. In addition, my a 1 c was elevated indicating borderline diabetes. It is a condition that runs in the family so I wanted to be proactive. Simultaneously, the pandemic necessitated quarantine so our monthly sessions were an anchor to some sense of normalcy in an abnormal time.
I’m not someone who responds well to ‘You have to…” Joanna’s style is guidance and suggestion, without absolutes. As a result of our time together, my a1c lowered to within normal range and I lost 20 lbs.
Some of our sessions were spent exploring long-standing attitudes and behavioral patterns that didn’t serve me and I was able to see my way clear of many of them.
Joanna is a body-mind-spirit professional whose services can be offered either in person or online. With her supportive coaching, you will experience positive life change too. EW
“I started working with Joanna a little over a year ago, after being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. After creating and following a gluten free diet plan for the last year, I have felt so much better!
My blood tests show a great reduction in inflammatory markers, and my digestion improved.
Joanna also went above and beyond by helping me manage other issues related to women’s health, stress, and lifestyle.
Overall, Joanna helped me return my health (and life) to a degree of normalcy greater than I ever could’ve hoped for.” GA
“Joanna (the main nutritionist) is terrific – she’s met me where I am, and never once used the word “should.” I’m convinced it’s this friendly, nonjudgmental atmosphere that’s allowed me to make slow but steady progress toward my goal of eating healthier to ward off the inflammation and pain caused by my back problems.
She doesn’t give you rules – she gives you options, suggestions… I’ve been able to make changes already that I never would have believed possible, and I’d recommend Nutrition in Motion to anyone who asked. ?” KM
“I was able to move into peace rather than anger after our Be Whole session with emotional release.
You were able to get to the issue quickly and ‘release this shit’ so I could move on.” LF
“I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated all your nutritional advice over the past year+. Besides helping me achieve unprecedented tri results for me, I think nutrition has been a major factor in keeping me going and recovering strongly.” JZ
“I worked with Joanna for 8 sessions [The Be Whole Program]. I came in tired, depressed, overwhelmed and feeling stuck. I was so relieved that she didn’t immediately focus on my weight. She asked me about the results that I would like to see and helped me to stay focused on those goals. I have felt healthy and energized since meeting with Joanna which helped me to complete three triathlons this season! When my stress begins to get the best of me I know how to respond and I have a plan to care for myself. The information you will get from sessions with Joanna is beyond basic nutrition and truly incorporates the whole person.” WG
I am loving my anti-inflammation smoothie every day, and I have been tracking meals using my fitness pal app which has been helpful to keep me accountable.
I’m definitely feeling more energized and less hungry adding in a little bit of animal protein, and allowing snacking. I am looking forward to our next session!” – RN
“I am so glad I signed up with Nutrition in Motion!
The meal combinations I learned were fabulous.
They were both filling and balanced – it made such a difference.
You made it so easy and I feel good! I have a lot of energy even with my new thyroid condition!”
“You did change my life!! You are a major reason I am where I am. Thank you xo. … Now it’s a way of life. I feel great and would never go back to my former eating habits. I love working out and being healthy.” – Becky P
… I just wanted to tell you again how happy I am. You have helped me so much already, I’ve been trying to lose weight for a long time and it’s just an amazing feeling that it’s finally coming off.
I got off the scale this morning and had happy tears.
The way you have presented the information has been great and I haven’t even felt like it’s been that difficult. I know these changes I’ve been making are so much better then any diet I could try- this lifestyle change has been amazing.
“I [worked with Joanna] on three separate occasions on dialing in my race day nutrition. She helped me out tremendously. Gave me a game plan for electrolyte supplementation during the race as well as some ideas on how to break up my nutrition during the bike and run, even more so than I did during my [Ironman Lake Placid} training.
She gave me 2 pieces of advice that stuck with me during the race and helped me out. I had a back up plan in the event solid nutrition did not work for me that day (which it ended up not working) and to nix it if something went wrong.
So after dropping solid foods and only using powder/liquid supplements, taking her suggestions of upping electrolytes if needed and switching the coke to get some calories in my system, I was able to finish with minimal GI issues.
If you think you may need some suggestions on nutrition or want to dial in a race day plan, give her a shout. She helped me and all my issues and gave me piece of mind when things didn’t go as planned. She was a big help and extremely knowledgeable.

“I found Joanna through various friends that had used her and recommended her services. I had major cramping and had poor nutrition throughout the [previous] race. … I knew I couldn’t achieved [my goals] if race day nutrition wasn’t fixed.
She made sure to individualize my nutrition plan to fit my exact needs. I completed another Ironman earlier this month and PR’d by over an hour and placed 3rd in my AG and 8th OA female not including pros. My marathon is at a 3:05 but hope to get sub 3 very soon and am confident that with my new race day nutrition, I will! – Stephanie K
“i wanted to thank you again for your guidance and recommendations. they have really helped me lose weight and therefore become more lean…and i’m ready to take on the ironman!” – Andrea R
“…the nutrition training plan was perfect…and the reason it was perfect is because of the coach-client communication!! All the adjustments you made (training & nutrition) were right on! I don’t think many coaches realize when racing a triathlon there is actually 4 events: swim, bike, run, and the most important NUTRITION!! The race day plan couldn’t have went any better.” Jerry L
‘Your nutrition plan worked perfectly! it’s the only thing that made Ironman Louisville work!’ Gwen P
“[Joanna] has helped me fuel/train for my first Ironman….I’m down about 10 pounds in 2 months (only 30 to go) and she has me really focusing on how to eat in a healthy manner vs. my favorite lunch of a large provolone, pepperoni cheese-steak with cheese fries and 32 oz. coke (not hard to gain 40 lbs doing that!). She is knowledgeable about nutrition and a kick-ass triathlete to boot…” Steve G
“With Joanna’s nutritional advice, my daily energy levels improved significantly. My ability to train intensely for triathlons was also enhanced & I lost 10 pounds as an added bonus!” – Jane Z
Cravings have been a lot less intense, but not totally gone. I do have a ton of energy though so that’s great! – Maureen M
