Most weight loss programs totally suck. In fact, they often do more harm than good.
They teach you to fear food, make you feel bad for wanting things like ice cream or wine, and tell you you have to give up your entire social life in order to be fit. They focus on short term weight loss instead of helping you actually live a life that you love. A life where you feel confident in your own skin, comfortable putting yourself out there, and capable of being your best self.
Don’t know where to start? Are you having a hard time overcoming your fear of food? Is it a struggle each day to figure out what to do in the kitchen or gym? Are you stuck in a negative mindset and feeling frustrated? Trust me, I get it.

Which Is Exactly Why I Created The Happy Bod Squad.
Hi, I'm Gen, Women's Weight Loss Expert and CNC. I help career oriented women lose weight, gain confidence, create more energy so that they can advance in their career AND feel sexy and confident in their own skin.
I've coached hundreds of women and helped them ditch the diet mentality through my online coaching program, The Happy Bod Squad.
After going through my own weight loss journey of losing (and keeping off) over 50lbs, I know what it’s like to let the way you feel about your body stop you from going after what you truly want. I let my weight define my own worth when it came to my ability to be happy, have meaningful relationships, enjoy a healthy social life, and have a career that fulfills me.
I spent YEARS trying to lose weight and gain confidence, but every diet or workout program I tried was too intense, complex, restrictive, or confusing. I felt like I was being forced to choose between my happiness and my health...and that's exactly why I created the Happy Bod Squad. Now, my mission is to empower women to find happiness in their health in a way that feels easy and sustainable so you can have the BODY and LIFE you've always wanted.
THE HAPPY BOD SQUAD™ PROGRAM
What is the Happy Bod Squad™ Program?
My passion is helping women realize their full potential by teaching them to have control over their bodies and daily lives.
The Happy Bod Squad is an online coaching program, designed for women who want to transform their body and life in as little as 90 days. Whether your goal is to lose 50lbs, or 15lbs, we have the systems and tools to get you where you want to go...without spending 3 hours a day in the gym and sacrificing your social life.

Trust me, I get it.
You probably even find yourself struggling with emotional eating at times, and constantly thinking about food - almost like you have no control....
Why does the Happy Bod Squad Work?
Because I have been in your shoes and had to overcome the same struggles as you.
I work with women to replace harmful thoughts with ones of self-love, self-respect, and self-confidence. If you’re ready to improve your self-esteem, regain control over food, and feel happy and confident in your own skin, I’ve got you! In my program...

• You can still have an amazing social life and career without sacrificing your goals
"Before the HBS I only ever knew two eating styles: extreme restrictive diets or gorging out on whatever I wanted. Now, I eat more than ever, and it’s food that I enjoy!
Before this program, I viewed working out as a modern form of medieval torture. Now, I work out, not as punishments, but because I love challenging myself and seeing myself grow. Thanks to the HBS I have pushed myself beyond my previously set limits and have been amazed at what my body can do when I gave it the opportunity to be successful.
This program has given me the courage to love myself. For the first time in my life, I am happy with who I am.”
- Catherine C.
“When I started the Happy Bod Squad, I was borderline overweight, I felt like crap, and I didn’t know how to change.
In 12 weeks working with Gen, I lost 17 lbs and dropped almost 2 dress sizes. I know how to actually eat things nutritious for my body, love exercising, and am way more confident! I even used this new found confidence to negotiate a 30% raise at work!”
- Kaitlin L.
“Before the Happy Bod Squad, I was depressed, sluggish, tired ALL the time, I took lots of naps and I ate fast food more often than not because it was convenient.
There are not enough words to describe how thankful and blessed I am to have found Gen's Gym. It has been an enormous transformation in just 3 months! I gained a more productive mindset. I'm happier with myself. I sleep better. I've gotten a lot of compliments about my weight loss and have even inspired others to start their own health journeys.
Thank you so much Gen for all that you have done for me and given me.”
"Gen really helped me start believing in myself.
Before I found Gen I honestly did not like myself. I stopped taking care of myself physically which led to becoming overweight. I'd tried so many diets and was super discouraged after failing time and again. I didn't feel like I had any energy to spend on being social, my job, school, and especially losing weight.
I lost a total of 12lbs and 15 inches. I am down TWO pant sizes. And I feel really heathy. My mental health is more of a priority and I am better at taking care of myself mentally and physically."
- Rachel Z.
“The HBS taught me how to focus on mindset and gratitude and has literally changed my life.
Before the HBS I was diagnosed with depression, and I feel like I was letting that diagnosis define me and my actions. Now, when I get in a dark head space, I have strategies and tools to help me see the light at the end of the tunnel.
My energy has increased. I am more aware of my emotions and how my body is feeling. It is amazing to see and feel how when you invest time and energy into yourself, you actually get more energy to invest in the people you love! I feel empowered, passionate, and driven again!!”
- Stephanie S.
“I feel SO empowered with all the knowledge I've gained from the HBS - not only on how to eat and exercise, but how to ask for help when I need it and to give help when I can. I learned how to eat healthier options and and control my cravings. I feel more confident, toned, and energized.
I am just so happy that I decided to do this for myself. It was worth the money, time, tears, and difficult feelings that came up. I grew so much in these past 12 weeks. Thanks to Gen’s Gym, I CAN do things that I set my mind to if I work really hard at it and ask for help when I need it. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.”
- Jordan H.
"Before joining the HBS I was mentally drained and felt constantly sick from all of the gross food I kept putting into my body that I thought I needed to de-stress. Thanks to the HBS I can’t remember the last time I stress ate!
In 12 weeks, I lost 20 pounds, but more importantly my old clothes are fitting again and I can’t wait to see where the next year takes me! This year I’m looking to make this health journey a more integral and permanent part of my life instead of just this “thing” I'm doing right now."
- Jessica L.
“After HBS I feel healthier, happier than ever. I am encouraged that I can meet and exceed my goals..I can be fit and strong, and I can just do it!
I have less cravings and feel less of a need to partake in every drink or sweet option offered to me -- I don't feel like I am "missing out". I don't feel guilty for eating the things I love (pizza, in-n-out, ice cream, etc) in moderation now. This is a LIFESTYLE and I finally realize that.”
- Bree E.
"In 12 weeks in the HBS I lost 30lbs!
I have an amazing relationship with food now. I no longer make myself feel guilty about any of the food I eat. Literally, I eat ice cream and drink wine on the reg while still losing weight. I am able to live my life and lose weight because I have shifted my mindset from restrictive and self-deprecating to having discipline and realism with my food in a self-loving way.
Gen is amazing and truly there for you. One of the many great things about her is that she truly cares about you and your journey."
- Stephanie H.
“Joining the HBS has been one of the best decisions I have made for myself. I never truly believed in myself and never thought I would be able to lose weight and feel this good so easily in just 3 months. So thank you so much for doing this and helping out so many women. I’m forever grateful for you.
I no longer beat myself up or talk down on myself. I LOVE working out now and know how to handle my cravings. I walk into rooms with confidence and am just HAPPY.”
- Kayla M.
“I have been told by dozens of people at this point how much happier, healthier, and vibrant I seem. I feel AMAZING in my clothes, and actually all of the clothes that I was aiming to fit back into by the end of these 12 weeks are TOO SMALL!
I have let go of all the stress and anxiety that I had around health/exercise/nutrition because I KNOW that I am making the healthiest choices for myself and crave healthy foods and working out.
I FEEL ABSOLUTELY OVER THE MOON FUCKING INCREDIBLY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
- Becca B.
"Before the HBS, I felt lost. I felt as if every single thing I tried didn’t work. I would try something for 2 or 3 weeks and then give up. Gen taught me valuable ways to make my progress sustainable, which is exactly what I was looking for.
My relationships, outlook on life, and priorities have all changed for the better as a result of the HBS. For anyone on the fence about joining Gen's program, I want you to know that if I can do it, so can you. It’s worth it because it’s sustainable and so damn motivating that even if you break your leg (which I DID!) in the midst of it, you’ll want to keep going."
- Katherine P.

CEO + FOUNDER
NASM Certified Nutrition Coach, Women's Weight Loss Expert, and NLP Master Practitioner
After struggling with my weight and body image my entire life, I learned everything I could about health and fitness. I was able to lose 50lbs naturally, without any weird gimmicks. I know what it takes to get results, and it isn’t just “eat less, move more,” like your mom says.
By breaking the emotional eating addiction and replacing it with my nutrition, fitness & mindset foundation for the Happy Bod Squad, together we destroy the self-abuse and rebuild with the powerful body (and spirit) you’ve always craved. I learned the key to happiness in health was loving yourself towards healthy instead of hating yourself towards skinny.
Because it isn’t just about how you look…. It’s about how the world looks to you. And making you feel like you’re on top of it is my specialty.

I have worked alongside various athletes and many women who look to eliminate stress and regain their confidence through prioritizing a balanced lifestyle. I have 6+ years of experience implementing my coaching with women worldwide, allowing them to take the floor and become in control of their confidence as they navigate a new journey to become their best selves. By sharing my personal journey, trials and tribulations with my clients, I connect on a deeper level of understanding as well as creating a powerful and welcoming, comfortable, and safe space for my clients to make big changes.

Masters of Science in Exercise Physiology, M.S. Clinical Nutrition, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and NASM Nutrition Coach
My passion for fitness and nutrition began while training for my first marathon. Once I discovered the power of nutrition for marathon performance and overall health, it became a pillar and fundamental aspect of my life.
I’ve been working in fitness for 10 years, and have 8 years of experience coaching, specializing in injury prevention and improper body mechanics. I’m a firm believer that exercise is medicine that can transform you in a holistic way if done correctly and safely.
I love helping women discover how amazing it feels to be strong, to fuel their bodies properly, and to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin. My goal is to help you trust the process and fall in love with the journey to create a sustainable lifestyle change with the proper guidance and support – and the right macros!
Certified Nutrition Coach, Women’s Coaching Specialist, Personal Trainer, Emotional Eating Coach, NLP Master Practitioner
My passion for coaching is fueled by my personal experience that includes 10 years of dieting hoping to achieve that dream goal weight (which didn’t happen), binge eating, emotional eating, overexercising and hating my body. Overcoming all of those turned my whole life around and I was shocked when I realized there are so many other women out there going through something similar. It became my mission to share what really helps to build healthy relationship with food, our bodies, sustainable eating habits and confidence in life in general! I complimented my knowledge of nutrition and exercise with practices that include mindset, mindfulness, self-love and self-care and everything just clicked. I know now that you can reach all of your goals from a healthy and self-compassionate place and that’s why I’m here. To be your guide on your own unique journey and support you towards living your best life! You have all it takes.
NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Precision Nutrition Certified Coach
I have been helping people create a healthier lifestyle that is both fulfilling and sustainable for the past 8 years. Growing up, I struggled with body image and was constantly stuck in the yo-yo dieting cycle. When I found the gym and how good it felt to be strong, it completely changed my mindset on how I viewed myself and what I was capable of. It motivated me to compete in both powerlifting and bodybuilding, and while I’d found success in both sports, I knew that it was not a sustainable way to eat and train for the long-term. After having my daughter, my passion became teaching other women how to build a healthier mindset, consistent habits, and self-love in order to achieve their goals.
As a mother and a military wife, I understand how easy it is to put your health and goals on the back burner; my mission in life is to educate women on how to properly fuel their body in a way that is not restrictive or shame-based, to show them that exercise can be FUN and not a form of punishment, and to empower them to live fully and unapologetically as strong, confident women in every facet of their lives.
My passion is connecting with others and encouraging them to look at the brighter opportunities in life. Through dark times, fitness continues to help me get myself back onto a path that leads to constant growth and happiness. Fitness has always been there for me, has helped me connect with my inner self, and has improved my spirituality when going through obstacles in life. Working for Gen’s Gym has created a space for me to learn about the many struggles our society deals with - things I’ve never experienced myself.
Embracing your stories motivates me to help Gen reach her goal of “changing a million lives through the Happy Bod Squad.” Being the first point of contact to our clients, I strive to make sure that they understand they are entering a safe space where they will work towards their goals and creating a life that they deserve, with the help of everyone here at Gen’s Gym.
I see myself as a sponge where I’m constantly absorbing material through books, podcasts and documentaries. My two favorite things are cuddling with my corgi and being at a concert with loved ones (singing and dancing the night away).

My passion is helping my community live a healthier, thoughtful and more sustainable life by teaching each individual I can how to live well. I’ve had the pleasure of having a training clientele of many demographics ranging from the high school athlete to men and women in their 80s. Outside of exercise and movement, I have a big focus on teaching about mindful eating, what labels mean and how to sustain a healthy diet, not be ON a diet.Several years ago, my mother suffered a massive stroke that left her hospitalized for 3 months. I dedicated a full year to being personally responsible for her every day recovery. I will say, that was the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life. That experience has solidified my mission to help others to never have to go through that struggle my mother and I went through.The most important thing I like my clients to remember, is that your BIGGEST life responsibility is your health. Because otherwise, where would you be without it?
BS In Health Sciences, NASM Master Trainer, NASM Fitness Nutrition Specialist, NASM Virtual Coaching Specialist, NASM Performance Enhancement Specialist, NASM Behavior Change Specialist, NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist, TRX Certified, DBC Biomechanics Level 1 Certified
I have been a full-time trainer and health coach for ten years now, and started pursuing a health and fitness career back in college. I graduated from Monmouth University with my Bachelor’s Degree in Health Sciences. Before I began training others I competed in natural bikini bodybuilding and learned the transformative power nutrition and fitness can have on your life (and body). I began working at a corporate gym as a Personal Trainer a few months after graduating college. Throughout my 7 years at that gym I received my NASM Master Trainer certification, and 8 other speciality certifications. I am currently working on getting my CSCS to better help my clients with strength training and nutrition for performance! After the pandemic hit, I ventured out on my own and began training 1-on-1 clients virtually. My main focus is helping people change their lives through small, sustainable steps and helping my clients to focus on the BIG picture (being there for your kids and families). I love growing and learning from my peers and clients and I am SO excited to be a part of this team!
My own transformational journey has motivated me to guide other women through their own healing journeys. Being able to promote the health and wellbeing of the women in Gen's Gym and The Happy Bod Squad has been deeply gratifying. Helping women take the leap and transform their lives is truly a gift!
Growing up on a farm and spending most of my time outdoors, my passion for health and fitness began at a young age. As I got older, I transitioned that energy into playing volleyball and continued to play the sport through college until I suffered a head injury that forced me to take a step back from the game. Both the year that it took for me to heal from that injury and graduating were a shock to my system. For the first time, I had to learn how to navigate nutrition and exercise on my own.
Throughout my journey over these past few years, I have used somatic therapy to do trauma work and I have transitioned to a all natural and organic diet. I have also rediscovered my love of the outdoors, where I spend most of my free time hiking, biking, and white water rafting.
Certified Fitness and Nutrition Coach and ISSA Certified Personal Trainer
I have coached women to achieve their goals for over 20 years as a personal trainer, fitness
competition coach, and nutrition specialist.
Body image has always been a struggle for me since my late teenage years as a track athlete
and professional ballet dancer. I was striving to be "perfect" by starving myself. When I was in
my mid 20s, I got into the fitness/bodybuilding competition world. Although I did win several championship titles, it was at a great cost: no social life, ruining my metabolism, and developing new eating disorders and body image issues. At the age of 40, I finally retired from competing and regained my life through my faith in God and making health my priority over how I looked. I love being able to
educate women on the balance of healthy eating and proper exercise, but doing it in a way that
reflects self-love and empowerment. I am honored and privileged to be part of this amazing
team of coaches who all believe in doing just that.
Master of Social Work, 200 Yoga Teacher Training Certified, AFPA Holistic Nutrition Certified
Before I joined Gens Gym as a client, I tried allll the fad diet/workout plans under the sun. I kept gaining and losing the same 50lbs! I was over the gimmicks and just wanted something that would last forever. I wanted a healthy relationship with food, I wanted to not avoid my reflection when passing a mirror or to cringe when I saw myself tagged in photos. I wanted to fit comfortably in my clothes again AND I wanted to wake up happy. I felt *knew* what I needed to do to get there, I just needed professional guidance.
The Happy Bod Squad was exactly what I needed. During the program I lost 30 pounds and after went on to lose a total of 85lbs!! I am a healthier, happier, and more loving person. I now wake up and feel energized. I know my experience through the process has been transformative and if I love getting to help people take the big leap to completely transform their lives too.
I am SO excited to help women discover their love for themselves again through the amazing transformational program the Happy Bod Squad offers women around the world.
After a successful career in corporate sales spanning 25 years, I decided to follow my passion and help women discover the joy of fitness, connection with other women, and just joy of life through riding bikes.
Some people are influencers, I am a connector. I connect people with people and solutions. In 2014, as a member of the inaugural Trek Women’s Advocate Program, I developed rides and programs which helped women become more self-sufficient and confident in everything related to road and mountain bikes. At that same time, Hammer Nutrition asked me to become a Fueling Expert, and travel to various retail locations to educate riders and triathletes about their products, so I added that to my new career! It was love at first connection… I paired the fueling with the confidence and abilities on bikes, and built a great community of women who raced, rode, and just had fun together!
After being diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 22, I questioned everything I knew about healthy eating. I grew up eating the traditional diet, and was active up until college..so how could I get sick?
After years of being on up to 12 medications a day, I made the decision to focus on living a healthy lifestyle that was full of nutritious foods and cultivating a growth mindset. After a few months of following this lifestyle, my symptoms were in remission! Even so, I still struggled with consistency and feeling confident in my own skin.
It wasn’t until I joined Gens Gym and became a client of the Happy Bod Squad, that I was able to finally break the mental and physical barriers that have been holding me back all these years. I can finally look in the mirror and be proud of the woman looking back at me - no matter what comes my way. I’m so grateful to not only be a client of Gens but also apart of the team!
