Why am I passionate about your health and fitness?
Because I want you to live your best life, so you can enjoy quality time doing the things you love with those who are important to you.
Because health and fitness is about celebrating a strong, healthy and able body – not conforming to an image or ideal.
Because with a bit of inspiration, guidance and support, I know you can bust through perceived barriers to realize all you are truly capable of.
Because we are empowering your healthy lifestyle – for life!
Because I know your health and fitness is so much more than physical – it’s mental and spiritual too!
My name is Mindy Garrett and as the owner of Mind + Body Elite my mission is to inspire, promote, and support your meaningful transformations.
I realized from a young age that being able to guide, direct and support others in ways that made their lives richer was what I loved. At 6 years old I used to drag a card table out into our backyard, set up a few academic activities and invite my little brother, friends and neighbors to “come to class.” I created a recess time consisting of organized games, friendly competitions and a good dose of play. My childhood was filled with opportunities to explore the great outdoors, biking with friends, hiking with family, fishing with grandpa, and practicing my swimming and diving skills at the lake in the summer months. My experience in competitive sports taught me about teamwork, preparation and follow through, problem solving, resiliency and never giving up. As an adult fitness has continued to enable me to grow – physically, mentally, and spiritually. Many of the lessons my health and fitness have taught came from challenge, and having faced significant injury and illness more than once, I understand the precious gift health is. I realize the struggle, recognize the challenge, and understand the frustration that comes with finding your way back to a healthy place. As your coach and trainer I will use these experiences along with my education, tools and resources to empower you on your journey.
