THIS IS HOW
I MADE IT
I am passionate about working out, eating well, and inspiring others to live their healthiest life, NOW! I struggled with my weight for years and I thought my genes were the problem until I took my first group fitness class. I was hooked! I loved the music and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I COULD lift weights, dance, kickbox, cycle....anything! I felt so much better emotionally when I worked out regularly. I loved it so much that I became certified as a LesMills Group Fitness instructor. I have always loved food but I learned that what I ate had a great impact on my energy, mood, sleep...EVERYTHING!
My goal is to inspire you to achieve THE HEALTHIEST VERSION OF YOU and connect you to other like-minded women. I don't subscribe to any diet or fitness program. I leverage my personal experiences and tailor fitness and meal plans to your individual needs. Email me at to get started on your ZURI healthy living journey today!

Coach Amy Joy
I am a Wellness Coach with It Works Global and First Genres. When I joined ZURI Healthy Living, I was taking several medications for different chronic diseases and was extremely obese. After participating in the ZURI Healthy Living challenges and changing my diet, I have lost over 60 lbs and no longer have to take any of the medication I was taking for chronic diseases.
I believe that complete wellness occurs when there is a balance between the mind, body, and spirit. I have dedicated my life to help other people walk in complete health by focusing on mind, body, and spirit. For more information on my customized wellness program, you can email me at email@example.com or visit www.joycemarendes.myitworks.com
I am 28 years old nursing school student. I am vegan/vegetarian, working towards loving myself unconditionally. I love Jesus! I love breaking a sweat - indoors or outdoors. My favorite workouts include weightlifting and running! I love motivating women to love themselves unconditionally despite any despair they have had in life! I always have a smile on my face. I love helping people come up with workout plans, healthy eating habits, and just self-love in general.
I am inspired by positive transformation. I want to live a long healthy and active life, encouraging others to radiate positive energy. ZURI Healthy Living motivates me to maintain a healthy diet and stay active. My vegan lifestyle has got me from a size 14 to 6 increasing my energy level exponentially. I am now an avid hiker. I completed the Tuscon-Phoenix Century Mile, the Sedona half-marathon and two triathlons. I’m looking forward to completing the Grand Canyon hike in May 2019.
I am a champion for health and wellness; motivating myself and others to be physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially healthy. My ZURI family is a blessing as I journey towards my wellness goals. I am grateful for the strong ZURI community and Coach Cera who inspire me to become the best version of myself!
I am a mother of one who incorporates toddler playtime in my workouts. I am an avid runner who believes that you don’t have to go fast to run a race but you just have to put one foot in front of the other. I believe in starting small and consistency births healthy results. As for food, moderation is key because bread is life!
We always hear people say that being healthy is a lifestyle but it is also a mindset as well. So often we have so much information of what we need to in order to attain a certain goal, but I have quickly learned that everyone has their own individual journey to being the best version of themselves. Find what works for you and be consistent. You are your own biggest cheer leader. Team ZURI is here to cheer you on.
As I am getting older and wiser, I am becoming more intentional about living passionatley and loving generously. I find that this works for me mentally, physically and emotionally and [surprisingly] results in good health :) I enjoy Art, traveling, specifically to historical sites and cities, and watching documentaries. I am a wife and a mother of two little girls.
