Coach’s bio

Hi! I’m Mitra.

I’m based in Asheville, North Carolina and I’m an over 40 mom with a passion for fitness, movement, and enjoying great food while feeling strong and comfortable in my body. I’m a:

  • Certified Functional Strength Coach (MBSC)
  • NCI Level 1 Nutritional Coach
  • NCI Level 1 Hormone Specialist
  • Former AFAA Certified Personal Trainer (for 5 yrs)
  • Completed the N1 Biomechanics & Execution Practical

Physical activity has always been an important part of my life, ranging from team sports, group classes, playing tennis, swimming, running, and more.

As I age, I realize physical activity and “good” nutrition alone won’t lead to the full life I envision for myself and others.  It requires a holistic approach. The term “holistic” comes from the concept of holism, which emphasizes the interconnectedness of numerous  aspects of a person’s life, including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.

I work with my clients to empower them to lead purposeful, balanced, and fulfilling lives. Together, we brainstorm on:

  • Increasing quality sleep.
  • Reducing and managing stress levels.
  • How to prioritize specific goals & stay on track.
  • Integrating fitness and movement into our weekly routines.
  • Creating flexible and sustainable nutritional guidelines and understanding they will change from time to time.

I work with a wide range of clients which means you’ll receive an individualized approach to finding the right tools YOU need to achieve your goals.

I’ve worked with males & females who:

  • Range in age from 25-75 yrs old.
  • Are recovering from major surgeries (such as knee & shoulder surgeries) as little as 5 weeks post surgery.
  • Are on diabetic weight loss medicines which requires a specific style of training & nutrition depending on how they react to the drug.
  • Are complete beginners through advanced athletes.
  • Have current injuries (we can train around nearly any injury).
  • Find their chronic back, knee or shoulder pain decrease or are eliminated because of the tailored fitness plans.

What Clients are Saying

Mitra has been the perfect coach for me! She is just the right balance of nutritional science, problem solver, support, and humor! After years of trying to lose weight and adapt to my aging body on my own, it was clear that I didn’t know what I was doing. Working with Mitra has been the best preventative medicine for setting up a healthier future.
