About Holly

Hey there! My name is Holly Forrest, and I've been in the health, fitness and wellness industry for (gulp) 26 years! I've coached a wide variety of clients over that period of time including seniors, clients dealing with autoimmune issues, and folks who were determined their metabolisms were permanently broken. In the beginning I focused on the physical aspect of training only, but now I coach my clients in the areas of nutrition, stress management, sleep hygiene, mindset and much, much more. I thoroughly enjoy helping clients improve ALL aspects of their health and wellness. I am encouraging and supportive, and I often help clients up-level to their fullest potential. I believe in an extremely individualistic approach and am the queen of modifications. I don't force my clients into a one-size-fits-all box. If you're looking for a drill sergeant for a trainer, I'm probably not your gal. I like my clients to improve slowly without having extreme muscle soreness (a little bit of feeling like you did something is okay, of course!). Recently, over the course of 12 weeks I helped a 56-year-old client who never lifted weights progress to lifting 15-pound dumb bells....and now she's going to have to purchase a bar and weight plates because the 15s are getting too easy. I'm so excited to help you create YOU 2.0!
