Vanessa Innes
Certification: PN1, PN2 Nutritional Coach

I’m Vanessa and I love flavors, foods, and phytonutrients. I studied nutrition and behaviour change coaching to finally get myself cued up after decades of large financial contributions to the self-help book industry. I reached 209 lbs on my 5’3” frame by my 50th. I enjoyed wine and cheese and felt awful.  

The funny thing is, back in my 30s, I’d owned and operated an aerobics studio, but life happens and you all know that story. With weight training and a full handle on nutrition, you can be at your best.  At 65 yrs, 70 lbs lighter and deadlifting 209 lbs., I can confirm that age is just a number.  I’d love to help you get it back too.

I am passionate about helping clients achieve their fitness goals through personalized exercise programs and hands on coaching.  I have worked with a diverse range of clients of all ages, from beginners to advanced, and have helped them achieve weight loss, improve strength and endurance, resulting in a better overall health. 


My expertise lies in strength training, functional movement, and corrective exercise. I believe in using a holistic approach to fitness, incorporating not just exercise, but also proper nutrition, stress management, and sleep hygiene.
