We’re often told that to be healthy we need to lose weight.
What if I told you that in order to lose weight you must get healthy first?


 Systemic inflammation as well as imbalances in your hormones, digestion, adrenals, or detoxification systems can make losing weight difficult as your body is working hard to survive. Where do you begin?

Making changes to your diet and exercise routine can be overwhelming and confusing. Let us simplify your journey to discover the underlying imbalances in your body and develop a unique plan to address them.

There is no one formula that works for every person. Instead, we take time to listen and understand your specific needs and challenges before using a framework to develop a plan to restore your health. Our desire is to teach you, encourage you, and help keep you accountable until you are confident and able to maintain your goals on your own.


You will discover simple nutrition and exercise changes that will nourish your body, enhance your quality of life, and allow you to reach your goals. Whether you’re looking to develop a specific nutrition plan for weight loss, preventing / managing / reversing disease, or looking to build a healthy relationship with food, we will provide you with the encouragement and practical tools necessary for your success.


Join us for a simple, personalized, no gimmick, no starvation program. Just lots and lots of deliciously whole foods! We can jump full in to your nutrition plan or we can take a more step by step approach – whichever you prefer.

Life changing advice that's easy to follow

*My gastro issues have baffled medical practitioners (including 2 previous nutritionists) for years. Finding Leslie has changed everything. Her advice is "spot on" and easy to follow. The LEAP testing gave me the reassurance needed to know what foods caused issues and what doesn't. Leslie's insights in to recipes and alternatives means that's I'm not guessing at what might work. Her personal training advice has my body in better shape than its been for years and I've lost 15 pounds! In short, don't wait to see her. You'll be happy you did!

Leslie is AMAZING

*I have had/ am having the most exceptional experience with Leslie! Two of the most amazing things about my time with Grace, Goals and Guts is that Leslie actually listens to what you have to say and she really cares about helping you. I was at a point that I was making some bad choices with my health because I was so aggravated that no one could seem to help me with all my symptoms. But Leslie listened to me and she believed me and she has continued to work just as hard for me as I have for myself and for my recovery. I just can't say enough amazing things about her. I am so blessed God brought her into my life.

Inflammation to Gut Healing

*The discomfort from all the inflammation in my body was escalating to a pain that was difficult to tolerate. Through Leslie introducing me to food that I enjoy and eliminating food that isn't easy to digest, my gut is healing and the discomfort and pain is minimal and will keep decreasing as things keep improving! It's exciting to get to a place of feeling good and feeling that way long term.

Healthy habits for a lifetime

*I have dealt with multiple autoimmune diseases in the past year (celiac and thyroid). I was overwhelmed and discouraged, but Leslie was such an encouragement and helped me make positive changes to my lifestyle. Her suggestions for healthier (and gluten free) breakfasts and lunches have impacted my daily energy levels and completely eliminated my need to "snack." I no longer feel as discouraged about being a celiac because she inspired me to try new foods that are delicious, healthy and gluten free. Leslie is kind, compassionate and knowledgeable, and she provided the positive push I needed to start getting healthier and helping my body to heal after dealing with debilitating autoimmune issues. Thank you, Leslie!

A great teacher and cheerleader!

*I came to Leslie after many years of trying to lose weight on my own with little to no success. I could tell after our first meeting that she genuinely cared and wanted to help me, so I was immediately at ease and looking forward to working with her. She has taught me so much about listening to my body and what it's telling me about the foods I'm eating. I've learned more in the few short months of working with Leslie than I have in the many years of doing Weight Watchers, Atkins, calorie counting, etc. I now know what foods to avoid in order to feel better and allow my body to do what it's supposed to do. I'm looking forward to seeing less of me by this time next year thanks to Leslie!

Something that FINALLY works!

*I came to G3 after feeling like I was a failure in my own health life. I didn't know where to start or how to be successful but I did know I needed help from someone that would keep me accountable. Leslie was just that person! Dedicated, professional, and compassionate are just a few of the words I would use to describe Leslie and G3. Instead of just handing me a diet and exercise routine, she custom-built something for me that works with my lifestyle, needs, and made me feel successful every step of the way.

Challenging would definitely be the word I would use to describe this journey. But with G3 I have not only attained every goal I have set so far, but I have gotten to feel proud of myself over and over again. What more could I ask for?

Lastly, I want to commend G3's approach on how to help people reach their goals. Grace is such a big part of it. In the past, I would mess up on my diet or didn't reach a particular goal, I was left feeling guilty and ashamed. Leslie has taught me that instead of shaming myself for making a poor choice, to question it. The poor meal I had or the morning I didn't walk isn't failure, it's an opportunity to ask why I didn't choose my health and then figure out how I can be successful. Over the last several months, instead of living with shame, I have lived feeling successful! What an incredible testimony to who Leslie and G3 is!

I would highly recommend anyone in my life who has a need in their health life to consider working with Leslie and G3.

Simply amazing!

*I had test after test to attempt at figuring out my digestive issues, only to come up with a blanket diagnosis that offered no solution. Leslie worked with me and I was back to normal and feeling great in a matter of weeks! She is so easy to work with, makes you feel very comfortable and is really understanding when it comes to the craziness of life! She really works with you to find a solution that can fit within your life, and solutions to heal and not just hide symptoms. She also offers a multitude of other resources that really help you reach your goals! I have already sent multiple people to Leslie and I'll only continue to do so! She's the best!

Very excited to continue!

*There are several things that I really like about training with Leslie. I appreciate the personalization that the workouts offer, focusing on my "weak" areas and helping achieve my goals. That's something that is very hard to find in group fitness and something I struggle with on my own. I love the progress I can see and feel. The things I am learning from Leslie about form and new exercises give me the confidence and knowledge to continue working out on my own in the future. I am starting to look forward to working out and have Leslie to thank for that!

Kelly S.

*Leslie was great!!! She dug into not only my eating habits and work out schedule but work habits, sleeping etc. She gave me a plan I could implement the instant I walked out the door. I have seen almost instant results. She made it easy for me to lead a more healthy life style.


*Leslie gave me confidence to pursue a balanced lifestyle that was not dependent upon rules, but upon choices. I know now what "healthy" looks like for my lifestyle and my body after working with Leslie.
