Hi, I’m Ella Magers, your Sexy Fit Vegan Coach!
Forget counting calories or spending precious time and energy entering everything you eat and every move you make into My Fitness Pal. And don’t worry, there’s no reason your social life and relationships needs to suffer! It’s all about finding the balance that works for you.
So… if you’re veg-curious, want to explore how to go vegan, learn about vegan nutrition, and/or connect with a community of like-minded people, you’re in the right place! Now I will share my story in a nut shell…
My journey started with an “aha” moment in third grade when I connected my love of animals to the food on my plate and decided never to eat meat again. My deep sense of compassion for all living creatures soon led me to transition into a fully vegan lifestyle and ultimately become a passionate vegan coach.
My other great passion, fitness, began with the numerous sports I participated in since age five. I jumped right into my career in the fitness & wellness industry at age 22, and opportunity brought me from my beautiful home state of North Carolina to hot, sexy Miami Beach.
Once in South Beach, I was able to combine my passion for vegan fitness with a career helping people become strong and healthy through exercise and nutrition. Immediately after moving I also discovered my love of Muay Thai kickboxing and have been practicing ever since.
I have been a vegan fitness and wellness professional for 12+ years now, with my certifications in Personal Training from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Wellness Coaching from the University of Miami. I obtained my Masters Degree in Social Work to gain additional skills in counseling people work through their hardships, gain success, and be happy, healthy individuals both physically and mentally.
I have been featured as a vegan fitness expert in the media, including regular appearances on CBS Health News Reports, publications for Prevention, Ms. Fitness, and Modern Bride magazines, and in fitness videos, including Crunch Boot Camp and Brazil Butt Lift. As a fitness competitor, I was lucky enough to win the FAME Fitness World Championship several years ago.
In September, 2013, I was privileged to be featured with a spread in BodyBuilding.com, as the Personal Trainer of the Month. I was honored to be named in Shape Magazine’s Top 50 Trainers in America, 2014. I enjoy speaking and leading workshops to help people learn how to go vegan the healthy, fit fun way. I was recently invited by the Sheraton in Macau, China where I traveled to led a workshop for their Fitness Connection Month. I am also fortunate enough to be a presenter at my favorite vegan event each year, the Seed Food and Wine Festival.
Living a life I love, full of fun, while keeping true to my values of a fit body and compassion toward all animals is my driving force. The desire to share my journey led to the creation of SexyFitVegan.com where my mission is to help you on your path to feeling full of life and energy, recharged from the inside out, and loving what you see in the mirror. In other words, being a sexy fit vegan!
I have 2 ebooks available on my website, the How To Go Vegan Beginner’s Guide and the How To Make Your Own Superfood Shakes. My book, the Six Weeks to Sexy Abs Meal Plan. includes a 6-week meal plan with over 100 awesome, simple yet satisfying plant-based recipes to go with it (available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon).
In 2016 I launched an exciting new program, the 6-VEGANS TASTE BETTER™ 8 Weeks to a Plant-Empowered Life Coaching Program that took off immediately. I help people make the transition to a healthy, active, plant-based lifestyle in a SUSTAINABLE (key word) way. No counting calories or macros. No cookie-cutter vegan meal plans. It’s all guiding people through a structured process to help people master the tools they need to replace old, unhealthy habits with new healthy ones in order to create a vegan lifestyle that they love!
Thanks for being a part of my world. Looking forward to connecting with you here and on social media!
