Who We Are and What Makes Us Unique
Our Nutrition Programs
Our nutrition programs establish firm foundations for nutritional insight and application based on the client’s health-specific needs. La Belle Vie’s Health Specialists work in conjunction with your specific diagnosis to help you nutritionally regain your overall health to encourage illness-prevention.
Our Health Specialists believe that dieting is not the answer but eating well and enjoying what you eat is key to weight loss, lower stress levels and so much more. We've even created specific programs to fully streamline and simplify your experience.
As a company, La Belle Vie focuses a lot of effort into healing the Gut (which is the foundation of overall health), balancing hormones, prenatal & postnatal health, and lowering inflammation to prevent illnesses and further decline.
We highly recommend that dancers and athletes incorporate a nutrition program that focuses on lowering systemic inflammation throughout the body to their regular training routine.
Who We Are
La Belle Vie or “The Beautiful Life” is exactly what we hope to inspire. We combine elite personal dance and athletic training programs with excellent prenatal, postnatal, and injury prevention programs for all.
As dance and athletic trainers, we work in conjunction with dance studios, competition teams, coaches, and athletic facilities to enhance their student's dance/athletic training by applying the principles of functional fitness science, biomechanics and ROM training, neuromuscular and structural balance, increased power and endurance, and proper facilitation of joint movement. Our dance and athletic programs are designed to challenge, motivate, and promote pain-free careers and retirement.
Our trainers focus on bringing illness and injury prevention to you, discouraging further decline and premature aging. We want you to be able to take charge of your own health & fitness through simple, functional practices. PREVENTION is our motto, and we hold firmly to that in all of our services.
As artists, we look at the bigger picture; where we want a client to end up based on their big-picture goals. As they go through a program, these goals are fine-tuned, altered, and more specific to achieve that larger goal. Things are never black and white; they evolve with the client as they learn their own strengths and weaknesses. And then the work of art that is that client unfolds slowly, revealing everything they have been working so hard to create - a masterpiece.
Our Personal Trainers and Health Specialists are highly trained and NCSF (National Council of Strength & Fitness) certified to bring you the best possible care throughout your time with us. We encourage each of our trainers to maintain continuing education credits and we work closely with Dr. Carol Perkins, N.D. to provide an extra layer of support.
Our Dance Company
Our dream is to encourage our students to be inspired by the beauty that is present in their lives and in the world around them. We hope to nurture them to love the Lord and praise him through everything that they do without striving. Our desire is to be a light to the world to show others the love of Christ through our dancing.
Though our company does focus a lot on helping clients achieve their truest potential, we help them create balance in their regular lives, keeping stress levels and striving low.
La Belle Vie Dance Company provides challenging, level-specific training in specialized classes such as variations/repertoire, pas de deux, performance, pre-pointe, musical theater, and choreography as well as an audition-only performance team to perform regularly for both our local communities as well as traveling opportunities. As with our entire company, our dance company's goal is to prevent the functional decline and injury of each dancer in order to prolong their dance years and provide solid foundations for healthy, pain-free retirement.
Our newsletter goes out every 1st & 3rd Monday of each month and contains tons of fun and interesting information. You will receive detailed business updates on events and new programs, brand new studies in the health & fitness communities, fun facts, recipes, and other special surprises.
I have worked with La Belle Vie on my nutrition for about a month now. Amanda's knowledge of functional foods, amazing flavors, and essential nutrients is fantastic. I have more energy, improved digestion, weight-loss, and get better sleep thanks to her guidance.
If you're looking for a "diet"-this ain't it...but if you're looking for a long-lasting lifestyle shift that involves eating (gasp) butter, chocolate, carbs, proteins, fruits, veggies, and everything else delicious, I highly recommend Amanda!
When I first came to Amanda I was feeling very poorly. Not only had I been struggling with my weight for years, I was tired all the time, suffering with multiple digestive issues, sleep disturbances and constant headaches. I thought I was eating healthy on my own but the scale kept creeping up and I was getting no relief from my symptoms. I had a terrible relationship with food. Everything seemed to make me feel terrible and I had gotten to where I didn’t really eat much of anything. After just a few short weeks of her program, I saw a massive improvement in my symptoms and my weight finally started to go down. I am finally eating real food that tastes good and I am never hungry. I love that I don’t have to “think” about what I am eating as she takes all of the guesswork out of my week. My energy level has been amazing and I have seen a significant improvement in my digestive issues. I am moving into my second month of the program and am down over 20 pounds. Amanda is very knowledgeable and always there to answer any questions I may have. I highly recommend this program not just for weight loss but also if you are looking to improve how you feel overall
I have struggled with my weight for most of my adult life. I’d try any new fad diet lose weight, hit a wall and gain it all back and some. Because of this I had an unhealthy relationship with food. I also suffer from Hypothyroidism which has always made losing weight harder. After my initial consultation with Amanda I had so much useful information that I was confident she could help me. I just completed my third week and I am down 10 pounds. I don't feel deprived at all because I get to enjoy some of my favorite things, including chocolate! Amanda’s program is super easy to follow and she is always available when I have questions. Healing my body with food is something I never thought possible and I can’t thank Amanda enough for showing me the way!
