HEALTH & WELLNESS COACH

PERSONAL TRAINER

my journey

Hi, my name is Ragani, a personal trainer and health, and wellness coach. I am a mother of two amazing teenagers and live in “Beautiful British Columbia”, Canada. Yes, I truly love what I do and I am constantly inspired by my clients and all that they can achieve.

 

I  have been where many of you are or have been. From an early age, I struggled with body image and lack of self-confidence. I developed limiting beliefs of how I should be and what I could accomplish based on what I saw and was told growing up.  I developed an eating disorder by using food to control my life because my marriage was falling apart. By starving myself I ended up not only abusing my body but my mind and soul as well.  I knew I had to make a change.

I HAVE DONE THE WORK + PUT IN THE TIME
TO RELEASE MYSELF
AND BE THE PERSON  I AM TODAY 

 

I HAVE  LEARNED TO LOVE + NOURISH
MYSELF EMOTIONALLY, PHYSICALLY,
AND SPIRITUALLY.

 

MY PROCESS GAVE ME THE DRIVE
TO INSPIRE OTHERS + HELP THEM FLOURISH. 

 

As your coach, I will support

and guide you

in reaching your goals.

 

The focus will be on you.

You will explore your strengths

and build on them

to make lasting changes. 

 

No matter what your goals are,

I am excited to share

this journey with you.

YOUTH TRAINING

Girls in Nature

As a young girl growing up, I never felt I was "right".  I did not feel confident in who I was especially surrounding my looks and my body. I was compared to other family members and told I was "big".  Over the years of constantly hearing this, I began to believe it.  There were no other girls who had the same skin tone as me let alone a "big" girl body like me, in the fashion magazines I use to poor over. I didn't even try out for the volleyball team because I did not want to wear the shorts that were the uniform for the girls' team.  "Are you kidding me,  someone will comment about the size of my thighs!"  Today I can say that I am confident in my own skin. Some days, I still feel uncomfortable when I look in the mirror.  Yes, it took work and I still practice gratitude for my body every day.  For me, moving and being active, finding my love for training and coaching has made such an impact on my life. 

 

Having a teenage daughter of my own, I am even more vigilant about creating a positive space for her and her peers and young girls everywhere.  The images that they see on social media today are 100 times worse than what I saw growing up.  Our girls are not broken, they do not need to "fixed".  Empowering girls through physical activity and helping them feel proud of themselves, regardless of their shape or size is one of the best lifelong skills we can give them.  They are so much more than the number on the scale.

I would love to meet a young woman in your life and help empower her through physical fitness and coaching.  Helping her realize that being physically active can also help her relieve stress, help with anxiety and depression and give her an overall sense of well being.
