It’s Official

Welcome to the #healthieryoo squad!

Who Am I?

My name is Esther Yoo and I’m a fitness coach and the founder of A Healthier Yoo.

During my formative years of college, I started developing an interest in living a more healthy, fit lifestyle. I was tired of being lethargic, lazy, and passive about my health, but I was too set in my ways to actively change my life. I’d tell myself:

I don’t have time.

I’m not THAT unhealthy.

I want to eat what I what, when I want.

I’d rather binge watch my tv shows.

These were just a handful of the countless excuses I’d tell myself to affirm my lifestyle.

Fast forward a few years to 2017, I was at my most unhealthy and unhappy state I’ve ever been in. I was at my heaviest weight, suffered from constant anxiety and stress, and felt moody all the time. My hair was falling out due to the high volume of stress I was experiencing from work and I put on several pounds of fat from binge eating to comfort myself. I was always emotionally and physically drained… Needless to say, 2017 was r o u g h.

At the end of 2018, I decided that ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH. I didn’t want to continue living in a cycle of self sabotage; my health was in a critical state and I knew that in order to better myself, I had to make an active decision to change my habits. Thus, began a journey of discovering how to start and commit to a healthier, more fit lifestyle.

From 2018 to the end of 2019, I went through multiple trial and errors. My journey has not been a perfect or smooth sailing one… Although I had a new passion and motivation to start my fitness journey, I didn’t really know what I was doing (lol, just the plain ol’ truth). My social media feeds were cluttered with conflicting and often, unhelpful advice. My levels of motivation varied from day to day and I had no idea what work-out plan to use! I was a hot mess.

April 2018 – Jan 2019 | Inconsistent Fat & Muscle Loss/Gain

I had the desire to start and commit to my fitness journey, but I lacked the proper knowledge, discipline, and accountability to follow through with achieving my goals. Did I let that stop me? NO! I made it my mission to overcome these roadblocks! As a way to really dive headfirst, I decided to embark on a 90 day transformative journey.

Over the past 68 days (I’m still in my 90 day journey), I’ve finally figured out how to truly begin and commit to my fitness journey.

What’s holding you back from starting? What are your fears and misconceptions about fitness? Do you have goals you want to achieve but don’t know where to start?

I was in that same position not even a year ago.

Yet, here I am today!

Everything I have learned up to this point, I have poured into my fitness coaching business to help YOU get in the best shape of your life – both physically and mentally. It is my mission and passion to empower millennial women like you START and COMMIT to healthy, fit lifestyles while building growth mindsets, healthy habits, and confidence in their bodies!

To all my boss ladies out there, it is NEVER too late to start!

Love, Esther
