Shirley Van Egmond, RHN, PTS


The road to health and happiness is not always easy!

As a mother, wife and business owner, I understand that time is of the essence. Focusing on your career and running a household are both time and energy consuming. It's not surprising at all that you feel overwhelmed when realizing it's  time to start looking after yourself. Especially if you feel lost, or just don't know where to begin or move forward in your journey.

This is a big reason why I wanted to go beyond my Personal Trainer Specialist certification, and deepen my knowledge in nutrition, and how it supports the body. I completed my Natural Nutrition program via distance-education, all while maintaining my position at LiV Personal Training Studio. Once completed, I received the designation as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist.

My mission is to help people better understand food, and how it can contribute to a healthy, strong body. I believe healthy eating does not have to be so complicated! I believe, with some basic knowledge, skills and quick tips, anyone can fuel their bodies with the right foods for them to live a healthy life. 

If you desire to lose weight, increased energy and feel like yourself again; or simply want to follow a clean eating plan, please don't hesitate to reach out. 

I am here to help! 

Working Together for a Healthier You


Gain control over your food, rather than letting your food control you.  Bring awareness to your eating practices, rather than eating on autopilot. Focus on HOW you eat, as well as WHAT you eat.  This begins with understanding that you have choices......choosing to consume the foods that truly make you feel good, learning the practice of a good eating routine, and learning the value each food provides your body.

 QUICK-START TO GOOD EATING is exactly that! A quick action plan to get you moving in the right direction. Starting with the basics, you will be introduced to steps that will shape your knowledge and improve your health, one meal at a time.

BETTER BODY, BETTER YOU is what so many clients are asking for! We will develop the specific path for you once a full symptom assessment has been completed. I will share with you how your symptoms are affecting you and getting in the way of you achieving your goals. We will work together with a strategy that will move you forward. This package includes 2 follow-up sessions.

What I Can Do For You

Weight A Minute!


The scale....the dreaded tool that so many use as a guide to being healthy. Reality is, it isn't all about the scale, but rather about feeling good within your body, being healthy and strong, as well as energetic and vibrant! You can exercise as much as you like but you can't out train bad nutrition. How does someone make sense of all of this? It's really quite simple....real food, structure and diligence. I can educate you on ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise into your lifestyle, and create an individualized plan to guide you to achieving your goals.  

Guts & Such

You are what you eat!   

But let's not forget that you are also what you digest, absorb and excrete. 

Yes, it's one wants to talk about the "output", but how our gut functions as a whole has a complete bearing on how healthy we look and feel. It only starts with what we put into our mouth, along with how it digests, how our body maximizes the nutrients, and how well we get rid of the "leftovers". One big long system with so many intrical parts. I am here to help you get that system working with you, not against you. 

Detoxing For Health

weight loss, weight-loss, nutrition, holistic nutrition, st catharines, niagara

Detoxing helps clear toxins from your body, giving many systems a rest so they can restore and rebalance naturally. This does not need to be extreme, but rather include quality foods to keep your body functioning and fueled during this process. This is a great way to re-boot your body before introducing new eating habits, or just to give your body a break from so many of the processed and packaged foods our diets can be made up of. Your personal view of foods will likely  change as you grow through this process. You will begin to understand the connection between food, nutrition and how they directly affect your health. My goal is to set you up for success and shift the way you relate to food. 

let's talk about food!


I hear so often that it's too hard to eat healthy.... I couldn't believe my ears! 

The only reason it's too hard is because we keep making it too complicated. There are so many easy options that you can create in your own home, using simple everyday ingredients. 

My mission is to help people better understand the basics of good food choices, and how to incorporate this into their everyday lives. 

I am willing to meet you where you are  with food right now. I will guide you by explaining basic fundamentals to help you put together simple meals for yourself and your loved ones. 

It doesn't have to taste terrible. It doesn't have to be boring....

but it does need to be simple

"Working with Shirley has truly changed my life. I've spent a number of years fighting with disordered eating and needed to make a change. When I reached out to Shirley, she broke down the process and we started our journey. Shirley's focus with me was to keep it simple, and make one change at a time so not to feel overwhelmed. Shirley was always available to answer any questions and to provide encouragement. I feel confident with my abilities to make healthy choices for to fuel my body, and that fits my lifestyle. I've found a freedom with food that I never thought possible."


"Shirley has given me the tools I need to eat better, and live better. With her guidance I have learned to better understand the foods I eat, and how they work to keep my body healthy. She has given me so much practical knowledge that really works for my lifestyle. Her nutrition advice has me on track, and feeling the best I have ever felt!"


 "What Shirley has taught me about eating a healthy diet is that it  doesn’t have to be overly complicated. It’s about feeling good, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood. She encourages eating food that is as close as possible to the way nature made it, as well as replacing processed food with whole foods as often as you can.  It isn't about perfection 100% of the time but everything in moderation."
