Courtney Berlin

Health Coach

Industry : Health Website/blog :

As a child, Courtney Berlin learned the benefits of how to eat well to attain and maintain health from her parents. They followed the Pritikin Diet and taught her the importance of health and nutrition paired with natural physical activity to build an everyday lifestyle. Courtney was active in gymnastics from a young age with an emphasis on nutrition for performance. She learned how to eat in conjunction with athletic training. At age 13 she shared her cooking with others and made connections between eating the foods you like with simple modifications to add in extra nutritional value.

A mother of two boys and former lawyer, work and family require nutrition as well. She has nurtured this passion for food and a healthy lifestyle. She currently holds a Certificate in Whole Food Plant Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Foundation at Cornell University, is a Certified Health Coach with training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She is pursuing a master’s in science degree in integrative nutrition as well. A featured guest speaker at Lululemon in Northbrook Court for their community outreach program, her practice spans the north shore. She has been cited as a health and wellness professional for Suburban Woman magazine and was selected by international fitness brand DW Fitness as the expert source for their 40 Days of Fitness Challenge. This provides healthy lifestyle ideas and guidance to participants worldwide.

What makes Courtney different than a nutritionist or other health coach? She doesn’t believe in focusing on short term gains. The emphasis is to eat what you love but make it right and has been helping clients achieve their goals of weight loss and better health since January 2014. Finally, to integrate the fitness component Courtney is a certified “PiYo” instructor (Pilates and yoga).
