Meet Your Coach


Barbara Ann Bruno

Hello! I am so happy you are here!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about me.


From a young age, I had a passion for fitness. I was a dancer through my 20s and competed professionally in my late 30s. During my fourth pregnancy at the age of 39, I received my Zumba certification and my certification as a group fitness instructor. I currently teach Dance Fitness and Full Body Fitness classes for the 55 and older community at SkyFitness 24/7 in Surfside Beach, SC.


I realized the dream of writing my first book, Take Back Your Life One Relationship at a Time. while studying for my health coaching certification in 2015. Much to my joy, it supported many people with their wellness journey and became a best seller. 


Living with several autoimmune diseases, I learned I am not my disease. When I turned 30, I discovered I had Hashimoto's thyroid disease. For years, I struggled with weight gain and loss until I found a sustainable lifestyle. I frequently mention the word, lifestyle because that is where change happens. Your lifestyle includes eating habits, fitness levels, and relationships. You'll see weight, health, and happiness changes when all three shift positively.

The other autoimmune disease I have been diagnosed with and have been able to keep at bay with no symptoms or significant flares is Discoid Lupus (DLE), which affects the largest organ of your body, the skin, and Minere's Disease, which is an inner ear imbalance that causes severe vertigo. 

I decided to learn more to help people struggling with autoimmune diseases by becoming a certified Juice Guru. I learned about the benefits of juicing, which led to my becoming a Holistic Health Practitioner in 2021. 

So why will you benefit from working with me? I'm a true believer that every "body" is different. No two diets are the same. I am not a deprivation coach. Food groups are not excluded when you work with me on your nutrition unless there's an allergy. 

Are you ready to see a positive shift in your lifestyle?
