Steffi Vanhemmens ‚Äď Nutritionist & founder of Melbourne Healthy Lifestyle
As a young girl I was always passionate about healthy eating what encouraged me to study in that field and do a PhD in nutrition… however I ended up having a negative relationship with food and being obsessed with on the number on the scale.  I ended up underweight, out of shape and struggling with very low energy levels and hormonal imbalances. Luckily I was introduced to a nutrition program by a friend 14 years ago which made me aware that being healthy and fit is not related to the number on the scale. I learned how to create a sustainable and enjoyable healthy lifestyle and give my body the nutrition it deserved. As a result I have been feeling AMAZING every since, feeling stronger, fitter and healthier than ever before… and have a sick-pack all year round as a bonus. My own transformation sparked my passion to help others feel as amazing as I do.  The past twelve years of coaching has been such a joy for me and love to be part of your journey too! You deserve to be the healthiest and happiest version of YOU!

Robert Barfoot – Head coach and co-founder of Melbourne Healthy Lifestyle
For most of my life I was overweight with the belief that I would most likely be this way permanently.¬† Having a desk job I was working out 5-6 times a week to compensate sitting down all day.¬†No matter how hard I worked though, I was not improving my weight and as I was getting older, it was even sliding downhill.¬† Fortune has it that my health coach crossed my path 4 years ago and taught me more about nutrition and how to focus on this to boost my health goals.¬† Since putting more emphasis on the nutrition side of the equation, and having the right guidance and support from the community, I have managed to drop the excess body fat that has troubled me my entire life and I have done so whilst even dropping the visits to the gym to once or twice a week… and the best part is that I am feeling amazing! ¬†My personal transformation has sparked my interest to pay this life-changing experience forward by help empower others to reach their health goals too. I am grateful to be part of the Melbourne Healthy lifestyle team and look forward to meet you soon at any of our activities and have fun while achieving goals!
