Hey there, and welcome! I’m glad you’ve found your way to my website!
As you might have guessed by now, my name is Barbara (but you can call me Barb), and I am in the business of making women stronger, leaner and more confident in their skin.
On this website, you will find a collection of all things fitness: from practical strength training knowledge to building mindset skills that will assist you in becoming a stronger, more resilient YOU.
Who I Am
I am a strength coach with a love for self-improvement. I am a full-time student and an amateur powerlifter in the 72kg class. I am a novice writer, working to improve my craft. I have a passion for becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable, meeting inspiring people, and learning about things I have no clue about.
My mission as a coach is to educate, uplift, guide, and assist women towards achieving their personal goals. I have almost 5 years of experience working with women of varying fitness levels, and it has been an extremely rewarding journey so far!
How It All Began
Growing up with body image issues isn’t easy for anyone; weight training showed me that I could quite literally transform my physique by enhancing my strengths and working around my weaknesses.
However, the biggest change for me was the evolved mindset that came with the commitment, dedication and drive to pursue goals, inside and outside the gym.
That mindset has diffused into other areas of my life, which enhanced my sense of self-worth and allowed me to move confidently towards challenges I wished to overcome.
I started training clients in 2013 and I haven’t looked back since. Today, I work with women of all fitness levels who are looking to become stronger, leaner, and overall just more badass.
As well as providing personalized training and nutrition guidance to my clients in Canada and worldwide, I am proud to be a part of Barbell Strength in the Netherlands.
Currently, I provide nutrition guidance and online programming for their in-person clients. If you live in the Rotterdam area and would like to find out more information about those services, email me at email@example.com or visit Barbell-Strength.com.
Here’s What Some of My Clients Have to Say About Working with Me…
Barbara has been very attentive to what I want and has always provided me with training that was customized for me. No cookie cutter program, which is something I love.
She treats me as an important client and friend, and truly wants me to attain my goals as much as I do. She sincerely cares. I recommend Barbara to everyone I know. Anyone who decides to join with her will be so happy with the results they get! Angie N.
I am happy to say that I achieved my goal of having a healthy and active lifestyle doing things I enjoy including monkey bars, climbing, hiking, biking and so much more. Cathy D.
