Your Diagnosis Does Not Have to Be Your Destiny

Have you ever felt like your diagnosis has taking over your life? Like the old, familiar version of yourself has disappeared? Are you struggling with the shock of a new diagnosis or trying to remember what life was like before?

It doesn’t have to be this way.

My passion is working with women, just like you, individually, to reclaim their lives, redefine optimal health and build resilience after their diagnosis.

Kind Words from My Clients

"My journey with Cyndi began over 4 years ago. From the moment I first met her, I somehow knew she was the one to help me find my way in my "new Life". I had hit a major speed bump in my life and was in enormous amount of pain. We started with my physical self and attended to the pain with MAT. I'm still amazed at how quickly my body responded to the MAT - and how good I could feel again (and still do). As time passed and my heart and spirit began to heal as well, Cyndi gently encouraged me to explore uncharted waters within myself. As frightening as this sounded to me, Cyndi's kind approach, paired with her experience and professional background, was (and still is) the added strength I needed to get my feet back under me.

Today I am in a place where my heart is happy, my mind and spirit are clear, and I am stronger and more full of this thing called life than I have ever been. I truly believe I could not have recovered, healed and achieved all that I have to this point without Cyndi's help. She is awesome."

Kara Nielsen

"I began seeing Cyndi while recovering from a hip injury a few years ago. She is at once professional, supportive, empowering, engaging, and witty, with just the right amount of tough love.

She is extremely knowledgeable of body mechanics and worked to address my unique concerns. I have continued to see her on and off for personal training and have kept in touch as she went through her coaching certification classes. She is an inspiration and a guide - once you hear the story of her journey, you'll immediately want to create your own new path - and she'll be there to help you blaze the trail.

Just once in passing I mentioned to her an idea for a business I was thinking of creating one day. She got tears in her eyes as I told her about it - she is THAT excited about the health, well-being, and success of her clients. Absolutely someone you want in your corner!!"

Amanda Daley

"Balancing my work and personal life has always been a struggle for me. I’m so passionate about my work that I have difficulty mentally turning it off. I was convinced I didn’t have the time to focus on me or the things I really want to do in my personal life.

What I discovered from you and your program is that I had lost sight of my personal goals. Instead, I let my personal and family “To-Do’s” masquerade as my goals clogging my routine to the point of utter frustration!

Your tools helped me put a plan in place to move past my old habits, rediscover my true personal passions, redefine them as value-driven goals. Now I feel more in control, am achieving both my professional and personal goals, and have a greater sense of purpose. Thank you!"

DeeAnn McArdle

"I have been working with Cindy for about 6 months and find the individual sessions extremely beneficial. She really has customized the training to my body and my needs. She is patient and willing to change an exercise to accommodate my mid-life body and limitations. My balance and range of motion have improved and I feel better!"

Lyn Crosb

"I cannot say enough about The Reluctant Athlete and how it has changed my life for the better. In four short months, I am feeling so much stronger and optimistic about my future after a very traumatic surgical procedure. The Reluctant Athlete has been a one-stop shop for Muscle Activation, Personal Training, Physical Therapy and a Life Coach"

Teresa Skog

"I Love the Reluctant Athlete. Its helped my body so that its not so sore when I’m working and of course playing!"

Sonny Wang Purdy

"I have been going to Cyndi for Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) sessions for the past three months. I work in an office where I use a computer most of the day. I was diagnosed with a pinched nerve in my neck over five years ago which causes me to experience varying levels of pain that radiate from my neck and shoulder down my arm to my fingers. Through her assessment of my muscle imbalances and the work she has done to address my muscle weakness I have experienced immediate results in pain reduction. Thanks to Cyndi MAT has changed the way my body moves and responds."
