Audrey Quick , NASM Elite Trainer

Bio

If someone told me I’d have more energy and more vibrant health in my late 40’s than in my 20’s, I would have laughed in disbelief. I need less sleep now and I still keep up with my demanding days. I’m a busy mom of an active six year old, so it’s important to stay healthy and energetic.


I always carried a few extra pounds more than I wanted, but when I got pregnant with my son, my weight absolutely ballooned. After I gave birth, I found it impossible to lose the baby weight. Getting out of bed each day was a struggle. Making the transition from career girl on-the-move to stay-at-home mom was overwhelming. Yet, I knew I had to get it together to be the best mom possible for my child.


I started learning about nutrition by accident. I began listening to a series of health and wellness podcasts. They whet my appetite to learn more and more. It became a passion. Soon, weight was falling off, and, I wasn’t even on a diet. I made a few lifestyle changes that greatly impacted my health. I’d love to share those ideas and strategies with you. Colds and flu are something I can’t afford time for as a busy mom. They became a thing of the past. Strange, because since I was in my 20’s, I’d get sick if someone sneezed on TV.

I always knew I felt better after exercising. The promise of what it would do for me was the thing that shoved me out the door on the days when I actually exercised. The details of a good exercise program were still quite a mystery. Plus, I was discouraged because I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. Eventually, I decided to become a Certified Personal Trainer just to demystify the whole workout thing. I discovered my newfound passion for healthy nutrition was a great fit with finally truly understanding productive exercise.

My limited window of exercise time is very efficient now. I’m creating the physique I want, at the same time I’m improving my health. I’m really good at what I do, and, I love helping other women take the mystery out of working out.


When I was first married, the joke in our household was that the best thing I could make in the kitchen was “reservations.” I could boil water and reheat food in the microwave, but that was the extent of my culinary talents and ambitions.

When we first changed our eating habits, it was a bit daunting figuring it all out. I realized I could make healthier meals in my own kitchen than I could ever order in from neighborhood restaurants. I took some cooking lessons, and then I just played in my kitchen. Once I got over my kitchen fear, it was actually fun. Now, I find myself helping other women get started creating magic in their kitchens, too.


I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from University of Pennsylvania – which means I’m not a therapist but I understand behavior and why we do the things we do.


Now, I’m so excited about my business, Quick Wellness. I love sharing the secrets of productive exercise that works specifically for women as well as healthy, delicious cooking techniques.  If you’d like to discover more about how I can help you, connect with me today.
