My name is Shannon Fox and I am currently a Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert student, and also a Fitness & Nutrition Expert graduate. I love all things health, outdoors and being with my family.

I chose FIT CHICKS programs because they stand for all things positive when it comes to women’s health. The Holistic NutritionWeight Loss Expert program has been the best experience for me and my personal health. The information is very informative and exciting!

What I would say to those who are thinking about enrolling is…TAKE THE PLUNGE! It’s been the best decision I have made and there has only been positive outcomes from it. Laura, Amanda, and the entire FIT CHICKS community is where you want to belong. If I can do it, so can you!

Shannon Fox, current HWLE student & FNE grad

I had the best time with this program! I was able to enhance my nutrition knowledge while still working full time. It has given me the tools to understand a wide array of issues that in the body that can be supported with the use of nutrition. By learning the different qualities of foods, and what food sensitives are lying under the surface I am able to see health & weight loss in a different perspective. All of this great knowledge from Laura Jackson and team gave my business a new edge! As a personal trainer, all I was able to offer clients was the physical fitness aspect. By adding this certification, I launched new programing called ‘Balanced Training’ that brings fitness, nutrition, and wellness together!  

Katelynn Cooper,  New York, NY – cooperfitnessandnutrition.com

I am a health coach, fitness trainer, and the owner of The Knockout Room. The Knockout Room, based in Toronto, Canada, offers holistic coaching in fitness, nutrition, and wellness for women of all ages. My specialties include in-home personal and semi-private training with a focus on natural weight loss.

I joined the FIT CHICKS community in 2009 as a client, enrolling in the amazing FIT CHICKS Bootcamp. I enjoyed the welcoming environment, the workouts, and the positive, encouraging vibe. I developed an appreciation for holistic health and my body. In 2015, following the completion of my Master of Business Administration in Copenhagen, Denmark, I enrolled in the FIT CHICKS Academy Fitness and Nutrition Expert program because I trusted Laura and Amanda, their brand, and their mandate. At the time, this was very much a personal journey to take control of my health and wellbeing. I was impressed with the program, how much I had learned, and my new confidence. I saw changes in the way I looked and felt – and I wanted to keep it going!

I wanted to expand my knowledge in nutrition since nutrition is such an important component of living a healthy lifestyle and attaining my fitness goals. Having had such a successful experience with the FIT CHICKS brand, enrolling in the Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert (HWLE) program was a no-brainer. During the program, I applied my learnings to my own life and lost 23 lbs over the course of 7 months. People around me took notice and started asking me for advice! What began as a personal journey was now turning into a business. I enjoy learning every day and helping my clients look and feel their best the healthy way.

The HWLE program has enhanced my client services and paved the way for immense personal growth. To anyone considering this program, I ask: “What are you waiting for?”


Demetra Dimokopoulos- Toronto, ON, owner of The Knockout Room

“My name  Marja A. Oliden and I graduated from the Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert program in March of this year. I am starting up Iron Rose which will be an online and in person weight-loss program for women. I have my first nutritional seminar booked in May for an all woman’s boot-camp class. I have also begin to collaborate with my brother who is a chef about putting together a collection of recipes/meal prepping book.

I was looking to get certified in nutrition because In my own pursuit to becoming healthy, fit and strong, I was trying to learn as much as I could about nutrition and there was so much conflicting information out there. I wanted to be able to navigate through all the BS and then I thought I oh this person can use this information and that person can use this. So I started looking for a program that I could learn from and in turn teach others. Also something that was in line with my philosophy of not just looking a one aspect of nutrition but taking a holistic approach and when I came across fit chicks it had to be divine intervention because it was so inline with what I wanted to learn and needed to know and so much more.

One stand out moment about the HWLE program was when I realized that I wanted to help empower and inspire woman to make positive lifestyle changes not only in nutrition but in all aspect of their lives to become the best versions of themselves…whatever that may be. By educating them on nutrition, mindset and healthy habits.

Since starting the HWLE program I have personally grown and learned so much about nutrition and myself. I have been empowered and inspired and taken charge of my health. I have been able to pass my knowledge to my two daughters to help them learn how to eat for health. Within the next couple of months I am hoping to generate an income.

If you are considering taking the HWLE program do it. I promise you, you will not regret it. I have learned so much from this program. The format of teaching is very easy and manageable.  I am truly grateful that I found this program.”

  Marja A. Oliden

I was attracted to take this program because it covered many topics that are not traditionally covered or discussed in basic fitness and nutrition courses and discussions – notably the roles of digestion and hormones in personal health, fitness and weight loss. I am the type of person who reads a lot and who is always learning, and I am pleased to report that I learned ALOT from this course. It has fuelled by desire to continue my education in holistic nutrition.  I also feel much more well-equipped to speak to the role of hormones and digestion in wellness and weight loss –  conditions that are commonly experienced by so many women.

As I took this course, I was able to learn more about my own body as well, and perform some useful self-experimentation. I have lived with digestive distress for parts of my adult life, and the content of this course has helped me piece it together a bit more, which in turn, I hope can help me to help other women out there with similar experiences. I now also have the tools to help educate other women.

Loved taking this program!  The main reason for taking it was for personal reasons.  I was trying to figure out what was going on with inside my body,Thru taking this program it helped me get to the next step in taking the right steps to getting back to where I was. Always learning and always expanding my horizons and my goal is to guide others with helping them achieve optimal health. Thanks Laura and team for everything!!

The Holistic Natural Weight Loss Expert Program is fantastic. The information packed into the classes is valuable. This program sets you up for success! It is a great addition to the FNE program which I also took and has helped me understand and use my knowledge for my programming that I have created for my clients. There is a lit of support from students, grads and of course Laura Jackson and Jenn.

Angela Aultman  Ontario, Canada – Aultimate Fitness & Nutrition

As like many courses offered by FitChicks, it was very detailed and specific and made you do the work to ensure you really understood the lessons. I really liked the way you had to learn the theory and then put it to practice. I found the course a lot of work but so worthwhile. I could confidently put someone on a program knowing that I providing the right advice for their specific situation. One of my highlights from the program was actually putting together the programs and the calculations to ensure the right amount of macros were assigned. It showed me how much time and work goes into these programs. The tailor made programs were designed to specifically to meet their needs and to make the program sustainable.  I enjoyed seeing the results of the people I put on a program. It has definitely changed the way that I eat and encourage others too as well.
