My name is Magda Schellekens and I work with people who are in their mid- thirties and beyond and who would like to make a positive difference in their health and wellbeing, so they feel and perform at their best and get the most out of their life. Getting older does not need to mean low energy, weight gain or lack of fitness. I offer realistic, practical and effective solutions so clients are motivated to achieve their goals.
My passion for tasty, nourishing food and a healthy lifestyle started a long time ago when I was very young. I grew up in a family who enjoyed physical activities, from jogging and cycling to sailing and skiing and who had a shared pleasure in home-made cooking.
But it wasn’t until I was a mother of three children and started running long distance races that I became interested in research on how to feed our bodies to thrive, be stronger and full of energy. This passion led me to study Health Management (MSc) at Imperial College Business School, followed by Personalised Nutrition at the Centre for Nutrition Education & Lifestyle Management. During these studies, I saw the scientific evidence of what I already knew intuitively, that good quality, fresh food, mindful eating and a healthy active lifestyle lead to a balanced and high quality life.
My passion therefore is to inspire others and to help them understand how they can naturally choose what makes them thrive. By incorporating scientific evidence and coaching techniques I strive to motivate people to develop healthier habits that ultimately lead to a longer, healthier and happier life.
I have extensive knowledge on a broad range of nutritional and health aspects. In addition to working as a Nutritionist and Health Coach, I run four week programme called “Feed Your Family Right” which provides theoretical and practical guidance on healthy eating as well as delicious and easy to prepare recipes that the whole family will enjoy. I also lead cookery classes, deliver educational talks and enjoy creating inspiring and nourishing recipes.
By working with me, clients can expect my commitment, expertise, experience and a completely personalised and realistic approach, as well as confidentiality and long-term support.
