About Me

Hi, my name is Carolina Paredes and I'm originally from Guayaquil, Ecuador. I've been helping folks get stronger, healthier, feel better, and be happy since 2015. 

But my work began way before that, back in 2004 when I was done with life and done with everything. What would have been the end of my story, became the beginning. How? By distraction and curiosity. A phone call derailed my plans to end my life, and I put my plans on hold long enough to discover a new adventure that would teach me that there was way more to life than just suffering. 

Then, in 2009 I became pregnant and decided to be a mom. This decision launched me into the greatest and most beautiful journey: Real True Love. I knew that if I was going to be a good mother I needed to take the best care of myself and in so doing I would be teaching my baby the same thing.

This is the greatest Love of all, Self Love.

Part of self loveI've become more and more aware that our definition of "Healthy" is distorted, and I've found that in order to be truly healthy and happy a few factors need to be considered. These factors are:

1. Stress Load 
2. Social - Network of Support/Community
3. Nutrition - Access to good Nutritious Foods
4. Home & Work Environment
5. Sleep - Recovery
6. Physical Activity
7. Mental & Emotional Health
8. Finances
9. Medical History

Notice that no where on this list above is Weight, Size, Shape, BMI, or Body Type.


Here's the Lowdown

We live in a world where there are many industries benefiting tremendously, making trillions of dollars, from people's lack of self worth, distorted body image, and misinformation on what good health actually is.


Fortunately, our worth and value as human beings is not determined by our size, our shape, the number on the scale, aesthetics, relationship status, other people, etc.

Our worth and value is determined by us, and us alone.


My work is to help you discover your amazing potential through Self Care, by learning to take good care of You, identifying and dismantling unhelpful/negative patterns of thought and behavior, and replacing these patterns with truth. I will shine a light on all the incredible aspects of you, and help you realize your potential so you can become your best self.
