“The team at Vital Body supported me beyond my wildest dreams
and encouraged me every step of the way.”
-Eric Andreasen, lost 50lbs with Vital Body
Certified Ideal Protein Coach & Workshop Facilitator
Gina studied Fine Arts at Emily Carr University and is the mother of three boys. When she is not spending time in her studio painting (see her paintings at ginamiller.ca), she is a Certified Ideal Protein Weight Loss Coach at Vital Body.
Despite being a yoga-lover, Gina never really fully lost her pregnancy weight after having her boys. She carried the extra weight around for nearly 10 years until she made losing the weight a priority for herself and followed the Ideal Protein Protocol. Now she feels lean and energetic in her body.
Gina is a top notch coach who cares deeply about each person she meets. Like all of our weight loss coaches, she understands the science of weight loss and is an expert at guiding dieters to their goals and empowering them to maintain their weight long after the weight loss phase is done.
“I love seeing my dieters have the ‘aha’ moment when it becomes clear they aren’t going back to the way things were. It’s so fun helping our dieters lose weight and enjoy their new bodies in maintenance.”
Certified Ideal Protein Coach
Beverley has a deep understanding of the physiology of the body from having an athletic and physically active lifestyle. When she did the Ideal Protein Protocol at Vital Body, she was impressed by the science and loved that exercise was not the focus of the program despite her very active background.
With the help of Ideal Protein, Beverley lost 2 full sizes after gaining weight slowly over several years from a car accident. She is pleased to be lean again and is back to her active lifestyle practicing martial arts, running, motorcycle riding, doing water sports and even learning archery. She is definitely adventurous!
Beverley has worked as a registered massage therapist for close to a decade and is a certified yoga instructor. Compassion and kindness are Beverley’s life mottos.
“There is a scientific explanation for every single part of this program. It floors me! Educating our clients on the science is a key part of what we do.”
Reception & Office Manager
Eimear came to Vancouver in 2016 and hails from Ireland. She has a degree in Sports Science and Nutrition. Eimear is the first person to greet people at their weekly check ins and takes amazing care of their scheduling needs.
Weight loss and wellness has always been an area of importance to Eimear since most of her closer relatives have dealt with obesity-related issues. For this reason, she shares in the vision of long-term health for dieters at Vital Body.
She enjoys running, exploring the restaurant scene and making new friends as she settles into her new community. You’ll surely recognize Eimear by her lovely Irish accent at your first visit to Vital Body!
“I love the look on our dieters’ faces – the look of shear happiness, freedom and relief as they reclaim the body they envisioned for themselves.”
Ideal Protein Certified Coach & Clinic Director
Zan has a Masters Degree from SFU in Health Care and worked in Leadership Development before co-founding Vital Body with Amrita in 2011. In 2015, Zan was recognized by Chatelaine Magazine and ProfitGuide.com as one of Canada’s Top 100 Female Entrepreneurs “Rising Stars”.
Zan lost 50 lbs on the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program after trying many other diets with zero success. “Sure I felt great doing more yoga and eating a healthy balanced diet, but I never lost any fat.” She went from a size 14 to a size 6 in 5 months in 2011. “I just love that I exercise for fun now, versus for trying to lose weight. It’s such a sense of freedom and peace to be happy in my body.”
Zan spent many years in the personal development field and brings these learnings to her work at Vital Body. Together, the team works to enhance the coaching they provide dieters by addressing the mental and emotional aspects related to holistic weight loss.
When she is not at Vital Body, she is spending time with her daughters and husband at home in the Burnaby Heights area where they have lived for 15 years. She loves cooking and secretly dreams of becoming a chef someday! Zan brings rigour and plenty of laughter to all that she does.
“In a digital era, it’s amazing that we get to see our people face to face and that will never change about what we do.”
Ideal Protein Certified Coach
Maggie used Ideal Protein to lean down at Vital Body and was pleasantly surprised by the ease with which the program fit into her life. She loves to share about her satisfied pallet with the Ideal Protein foods that range from crunchy to sweet and the lifelong healthy habits she built on her program.
Maggie comes to us from working with the younger population in mental health care where she enjoyed her position as an Administration and HR Manager. Most of her career was spent as a consultant in immigration law. She also had the exciting opportunity to work with the organizing committee for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
Maggie has a strong value for helping others and making a positive impact. She views the importance of the weight loss journey as coming into alignment with your own inner happiness and discovering the opportunities that open up after reaching your weight loss goal.
Apart from her coaching at Vital Body, Maggie lives a full social life, is a seeker of local arts and culture and loves to eat out! She spends much of her time with friends and family and her two dogs, Jack & Lula.
