Hi, I’m Tara. This was me in 2012:

And this is me Now:

I know what it’s like to hate what you see in the mirror.

I know what it’s like to try and try and try.

I know what it’s like to feel like you’ll never get there.

It freaking sucks.

I also know what it’s to get there.

I know what it’s like to find out what it actually takes.

I know what it’s like to watch your body transform.

I know what it’s like to feel the energy and confidence you feel when you get to that level.

And I want to help you experience that.

As I’ve gone through my journey, I’ve learned it’s 100% about what’s going on inside of you.

Let me tell you… I’m no stranger to suffering.

I grew up extremely poor. I experienced physical, sexual and emotional abuse. I experienced neglect. I had a mentally ill single mom. I understand the trauma associated with those kinds of experiences. At age 33, I left a religion that completely ruled my life, lost everyone I knew, got divorced after 13 years of marriage with 4 kids as a part-time personal trainer, got in a toxic relationship, lost everything I had, hit rock bottom, started over from ground zero, had a spiritual awakening/wake up call, went on a healing journey, invested in a ton of personal development, kept investing in my professional development, and my life started changing drastically for the better. And fast. I started implementing the most powerful tools I was discovering on that journey with my clients, and they also started seeing massive shifts in their self love, confidence, relationships, success, and spiritual connections in addition to their bodies. I knew I had found something special. And because it was born out of my own journey of healing and self-empowerment, it brings me so much joy to share that with you.

So while pictures only show the physical, my story is definitely not just about a fitness transformation. It’s about the unleashing of a soul.

Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to coach so many beautiful people, including professional athletes, tv and movie celebrities, and top CEO’s.

I want to help you. This is more than a job for me. It’s my purpose. Let me help you identify and remove any unseen tethers that might be holding you back, whether it’s in your physiology or your psychology, so you can see how powerful you really are.

Please take a look at my coaching details page so you can see what that actually looks like.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and to be here.

To your unleashing 😉

What's this keto in & out business all about?

I specialize in the ketogenic diet and I think everyone should do a phase of keto. It teaches your body how to run off its own body fat for fuel!

Benefits To Keto

  • Builds more mitochondria.
  • Makes new neuronal connections in your brain.
  • Wipes away inflammation.
  • Restores insulin sensitivity.
  • Heals the gut.
  • Heals disease.
  • And more…

Many people describe ketosis as an awakening of their brain.

They experience:

  • Better mood.
  • More mental clarity.
  • Fewer cravings.
  • Greater appetite control.
  • And more…

So... Why Not Just Stay Keto Forever?

Because a fully functioning metabolism uses protein, fat and carbs. We are using keto as a tool to teach your body to burn fat for fuel, then it’s time to bring carbs back in. This makes the weight loss game so much easier. Many people don’t know how to bring carbs back in after keto. Or they’re scared to. How much? When do I eat them? What kinds of carbs? What do you actually eat? I will show you. And last?? I’ve also learned people don’t know how to properly exercise on keto or how to shift things when eating more carbs.

Let Me Show You How.

Success Stories


Just have to give my bootcamper Lindsey her own post because look what she did in 28 days!!! She followed the program to a T and was super active in our Facebook community.

She’s currently in my Low Carb Bootcamp and still crushing it and I’m just so impressed with her diligence and drive. Way to go Lindsey!


Huge shoutout to my Keto Bootcamper Mindy for doing some amazing work in just 28 days! Doesn’t she look amazing?!
What I love was that her motivation was more about health than it was weight loss.

Here’s what she had to say:

I did this challenge because I was addicted to sugar! I was binging on sweets and couldn’t have just one. I was hoping that by eating a high fat diet I would feel satisfied and not feel the need to eat uncontrollably.
This has been such a good experience for me. I will admit I was tempted to stop sometimes thinking “why am I doing this”? and “I just want to eat some carbs!” But what I would do is go get some keto food, eat and then I would feel good! After I ate I didn’t feel the need to quit. It was definitely a success for me.
My favorite part….The fat coffee!!!! Yum!

Thanks for keeping it real and showing us how you tackled the tough moments. Amazing job.
