Lisa Ankervik

Hey, I'm Lisa, 
I was born in Sweden and lives both in Sweden and in Tel-Aviv, a mother of two boys plus two bonus kids.

I graduated my university degree in Sweden as a Health Guidance Expert and I’m working in Health Promotion- helping and supporting people of all ages with all aspects of health, throughout the life span.

I see health as based on a holistic approach, where health is a combination of physical, mental, emotional, social and existential well-being.
I’m passionate about nutrition and all kinds of sports and fitness activities. I love to travel and to spend time with my family and friends. I believe we should all enjoy life and fill it with happiness and love. My goal is to share my knowledge and experience, guide and motivate people to empower themselves a better health and lifestyle.

Naomi Pelled

Hey! My name is Naomi Pelled

I’m a mum of 3, a 6 year old daughter and identical twin 2.5 year olds.

When my sons were 11 days old, I nearly died, and although I remember, nothing of the 2 days in intensive care, I’ve been told a lot, and never wish to be in that situation ever again.

As a result, over the past couple of years I have done a lot of self exploration, learning deeper into the three principles, finally having a mind shift and working on having a happier, healthier and more successful life. My grandma lived til 92, and I too would love to live to see my great grandkids.

My mission is to empower each and everyone to take control of their health and the health of their family, and not have the conventional health system control how one affects their health and outlook.

Chris McLean 

Hey, I'm Chris, 

I'm a brand & marketing consultant, following over a decade running my own digital agency, both at home in Melbourne and for 6 years in the UAE. 

I’m an animal lover & butler to 4 rescue cats and a pup named Misha. 

I’ve always been active, have a passion for the adventurous (an avid rock climber for the last 25 years) and finding new approaches to diet, movement and physiology. 

My love for animals has lead me to an ethical approach to food & health, I’m vegetarian & like 94% vegan.

My mission is to educate and empower people to make better decisions about their health, nutrition & fitness. I believe that we at what we eat, and that a plant-based diet is not only beneficial for our bodies, but for the planet. 

My favorite quote comes from my Dad, who inspires me to pursue prevention over cure; when battling cancer he once said, “The best way to beat cancer, is to never get it in the first place!” 

Here’s to living our best lives, as our best selves, in our best bodies.

Allyn's Story

I am Allyn Ann Simpson, an infertility Nurse Practitioner, but my story starts way before I received my Master’s Degree. I originally took a job in infertility to get off the night shift (I am NOT a night person)! The only OBGYN position at the time was at the local fertility clinic. I took it and I am so glad I did. I took the job in 2007 and learned in 2008 I would also struggle with I fertility myself (but didn’t know the extent at the time). I was diagnosed with PCOS at the end of 2007 and was diagnosed with endometriosis in the summer of 2008. I decided to aggressively try and conceive in January of 2009. I started clomid. I tried a few cycles, then took a break due to a move to California. After that we proceeded with 5 IUI cycles (all failed) and then in the summer of 2011- did our first IVF cycle. It failed miserably and I had no extra embryos frozen. I then tried again in December of 2011 and through a miracle of a day 3 embryo transfer, I conceived my daughter. Since then I have had a total of 3 laparoscopies for my endometriosis, 3 more IVF cycles including 2 frozen embryo transfers and 1 fresh embryo transfer and still no second pregnancy. I would love to have another child but feel so thank for the beautiful little girl I have the pleasure of calling mine!

Why I want to be a part of The Fit & Fab Collective

I feel like I have the unique background of starting out as a post partum and newborn baby nurse, to working in and experiencing infertility, to having my own pregnancy, labor and delivery experience, and breastfeeding journey. I want to use all the knowledge I have acquired in school, but also life , to help educate and encourage women no
Matter what type of journey they may be facing.

Pamela's Story

I’ve always been passionate about food and helping people. I grew up in Manchester, England and although I wasn’t a stranger to fruits and vegetables in my childhood, my diet was far from wholesome. In fact, I was heavily disconnected from the foods I ate. It wasn’t until my mid-20s, after years of struggling with gastrointestinal issues and what I now understand to be hormonal imbalance, that I decided it was time to take charge of my body and begin to rebuild our broken relationship.

For the first time in my life, I began to converse with my body, listening to what she was telling me through the symptoms she presented and responding to her as she needed.

I turned to nutrition and holistic practices to establish this symbiotic relationship, eliminating sugar, caffeine, processed foods and alcohol from my diet. I switched my diet to one made up of heavily plant -based foods, healthy fats, smart carbs and good quality animal products and began to nourish myself.

I was fortunate enough to transform my own life through nutrition and found my calling in helping to educate and empower women to take control of their own health.

I enrolled in the founding Naturopathic University in the US (NUNM), where I earned my Masters of Science in Nutrition so that I could fulfill my purpose of helping others through my true loves: food and healing. Upon completing my degree, I began working with a wonderful clientele of women helping them to resolve the root cause of their health issues, addressing areas such as hormonal imbalance, infertility, pregnancy and postpartum care along with digestive disorders.

With a specialism in root cause, women’s health I recognize that there’s no one-size-fits-all diet as each person is unique with their own individual nutritional requirements. I treat the person, not just the disease or the condition. I believe that healthy living is something that we all deserve and by working together we can pave the way to a healthier, more nourished community of women.

 

Why I want to be part of The Fit & Fab Collective

The fit and fab collective provide a supportive and healing community for women on their journeys. When women support each other incredible things can happen. As a Holistic Nutritionist serving women through the transformative powers of food as medicine, I’m excited to utilize my knowledge and expertise to positively impact this wonderful community.

Camille's Stroy

I can describe myself like a box of tools. My best tools are empathy, intuition and ability to listen. My objective is finding well-being and health knowing himself, expressing the deep voice we have inside and finding the perfect words and actions to materialize it.  

I adapt my practice according to what is needed : philosophical and psychological reflexion, art therapy (dance, writing, acting...), esoteric journey using tarot cards...

I was a philosophy student when I did a trip to South America and felt in love with Chile. I finished my master willing to come back there. I loved the kindness of people, the unpretentiousness, the importance of sharing in simplicity. This atmosphere allowed me to heal the wounds left by the "Old World" : depression, communication issues (shyness, introversion...), etc.

I found a job and I taught French and Philosophy in a French high school in Concepción. At first I was enjoying a lot leading students to understand a different way of thinking, to transcend their abilities... It was a wonderful motivation for me and I learnt so much !

But progressively I felt frustrated for not having time/space to share more intimate relationships (how difficult it is to express himself with a whole class listening...). Besides, I was deepening my dancing skills (afro, dancehall, hip-hop...), I learnt about ayurveda, yoga, meditation and a lot of new perspectives and I knew that I could not fit anymore in the traditional education.

Otherwise I was missing my family and I felt ready to come back to Europe. But I am made to travel ! so I decided to come close to my family who lives in Israel, and bind with the great vibrations we have in this land.

Why I want to be a part of The Fit & Fab Collective

The mission of this collective is really fundamental and beautiful. We all have to connect with our inner nature to give Life the best we have. Personally I am honoured to work with a team with such potential and will. It is so important to feel connected, to be part of different families. It is too easy to fall in aislation nowadays and it is a great shame. We are in a period of huge change, we have to create strong bounds to help each other and use the wonderful power of emulation.

"The Art of Water. There are other magics, but mine is very simple. It consists in maliciously observing the course of things. We look. We comment on the world. Above all, we learn to accept reality. We train to do nothing. Do not tame, do not direct, do not order the world. We discover that we must not deviate the course of the rivers. Our desires, our fears, our secret affinities: so many rivers. We do not build absurd dikes that the first flood would yield. [...] The magic begins there; when we listen to water and accept the inconstancy (and joy) of a river."
