Teralee Trommeshauser started Natural Edge Health and Fitness Coaching in January and hasn’t looked back.

Training business a natural fit

Starting her own health and nutrition business was an easy transition for Teralee Trommeshauser. “For a long time I’ve been an avid exerciser and I was the go-to person for a lot of people,” the Robson resident said.

Starting her own health and nutrition business was an easy transition for Teralee Trommeshauser.

“For a long time I’ve been an avid exerciser and I was the go-to person for a lot of people,” the Robson resident said.

“I’ve always had a passion about nutrition and fitness and I thought it would be fun to help people.”

In January, Trommeshauser started offering services under Natural Edge Health and Fitness Coaching.

“The mission of my business is to make health and fitness accessible to everybody,” she said.

“You don’t always need to focus on the ‘losing the 20 lbs. goal,’” she said. “Accomplish your goals one at a time.”

One service Trommeshauser offers is a personal assessment, which involves a postural, flexibility and cardiovascular assessment, as well as nutritional guidance and a fitness plan.

“I can see where you’re at in terms of physical capability,” she said. “It also allows me to cater to people’s specific needs.”

She said the advantage to the assessment is because it’s personalized for your body, you dramatically reduce the risk of injury and increase your chance of success.

One-on-one training is another option, Trommeshauser said. By having set times to work out, she noted, you’re more likely to stay motivated and you’ll be doing exercises safely and effectively.

As a personal trainer, Trommeshauser said she often cringes at the gym when she sees people using the machines completely wrong and ineffectively.

“I can come to your home and there’s no equipment necessary,” she said. “I work with people of all different fitness levels and it doesn’t have to be intimidating.”

Her style of personal training is different because it comes with the nutrition aspect.

“It’s like having a coach there to help you make lifestyle changes instead of having someone there to work you out,” she said.

Group training is also offered, where you can grab a few friends to cut the cost, while also picking a time and location that works for you.

Trommeshauser said she saw a need for people wanting to get healthy that are stuck in an office all day, so she began offering corporate wellness programs as well.

For small and large businesses, she can create an exercise program, nutritional program or both.

Next up in Natural Edge’s scheduled classes are boot camps.

The classes run two days a week: Monday and Wednesday at 7 a.m. at the Robson Hall, starting March 28 and running until May 18.

On March 21 and 23 at 7 a.m. Trommeshauser is also offering free classes for people to come out and try.

Already on the go is “Total Body Blast,” which takes place at Windborne B&B in Robson at 5 p.m. Trommeshauser said there’s still time to join.

On May 4, she’s teaching a workshop through Continuing Education at Selkirk College called “Shake That Sugar Habit,” where she’ll be teaching tips to beat sugar addiction with samples and recipes, as well as educating participants on the dangers or refined sugar.

With more classes and workshops planned for the spring and summer, Trommeshauser said to keep tabs on her website, naturaledgehealth.com. For more information, e-mail teralee@naturaledgehealth.com or call 304-4703.
