When I found out I had osteopenia while I was in my early 40s, I was shocked. I was a personal trainer, after all. I exercised. I ate healthy. I thought I was doing everything right. So I set out on a mission to learn everything I could about osteoporosis, and its precursor, osteopenia. And I learned a lot. Since then, I've shared what I know and helped dozens of clients and others. Now I want to share it with you. And no, I still don't have osteoporosis, 15 years later!
Getting an osteoporosis diagnosis can be devastating.
I don't want you to feel the overwhelm that I felt.
If you're like me, you may have these feelings -
You feel helpless that it's too late to make your bones stronger.
You're devastated that your active lifestyle may have to end.
You're worried that you'll break a bone and become debilitated.
You know you should be exercising to strengthen your bones, but you don't know what to do, and you don't want to hurt yourself.
You're afraid of becoming - or you already are - isolated from others
because you're afraid to be in situations where you could be hurt.
You're afraid that osteoporotic
'hump' is in your future.
You're concerned about taking
medication because you've
heard about so many side
And you're not sure what the
future hold for you.
You look 'normal'. You feel
All on the outside.
But on the inside -
Your bones are fragile. You feel different. You feel alone. You feel no one understands your worries.
I want you to know - You are not alone. These are common thoughts and fears.
Debilitating broken bones, isolation, and your worst fears for your future are not inevitable.
I want to give you all the information you need to build strong bones.
It's not too late.
Let me share my knowledge and experience with you so you don't have to experience these feelings. I know. I've been there.
I will share the facts - risk factors that we have control over, proper nutrition and safe, effective exercises. You will leave this training with the knowledge, and solid action steps to face the future confidently.

I absolutely loved this class. It covered so many aspects of this disease. I want to reverse my bone loss and this class showed me exactly how to do it.
The information Karen shared was very complete and so well organized. She is clearly quite knowledgeable and presented it in a very understandable way. Very, very good.
I found out I have osteoporosis years ago. I wish I would have had this information then. It gave me the information I need to strengthen my bones. I'm so glad I took the class!
I don't have osteoporosis but my doctor told me I'm at risk for it. I wanted to learn everything I could to avoid getting it. This class gave me everything I hoped for and more than I expected. I recommend it to anyone who's worried they might get osteoporosis or has it.
I want to stay strong long as possible! This class gave me what I need to do it. The information was excellent and definitely usable.
This information is so valuable to anyone with osteoporosis or concerned about developing it. Everyone should have it.
Taking this class now will save me time, money, and so much pain - both physical and emotional later. I'm so glad I have this knowledge.
So much can be done to build stronger bones. I want you to know everything I've learned over the past 15 years researching and working with clients with this disease.
