Hello! My name is Holly Gray. I am a certified Nutrition Specialist, Personal Trainer and Health Coach.  I received my certifications from the American Council of Exercise (ACE). My deep passion for all things healthy came from my own personal battle with weight loss and depression.  In 2005, I found myself in my mid-thirties, a single mother of two young girls, feeling very overwhelmed, depressed and filled with anxiety. I sought comfort in food and paid no attention to the effect my behaviors were having on my body and health. As a result, I packed on an astounding 75 pounds!! After several years of fad dieting, prescription weight loss medication, purchasing memberships to gyms I wouldn't use, trying to hide my body in body shapers, being diagnosed with high blood pressure and put on medication, I finally decided to get serious about my health! Over the course of 18 months, I changed my relationship with food, began an exercise regiment, learned what proper nutrition really was and got healthy! I also decided that I wanted to share everything I had learned with others and be a help to them in their journeys to health. My desire to be a help to others led to me earning my nutrition and health coach certifications and ultimately, to the creation of Veggie Rap! The road to health and wellness begins with the first step.  Let's talk about it!
