LUCI CROW 

Luci Crow, MS, RD is a registered dietitian and Certified Power Pilates Instructor.  Her focus is assisting clients to discover a personal balance for food, fitness, and fun that optimizes health and strength at every age and physical condition without engaging in predetermined rules and expectations.   Luci specializes in coaching clients to use intuitive eating skills and enjoyable exercise to manage their health and their weight mindfully, with a goal of being and feeling their own personal best.

Luci uses a non-weight, non-diet approach to work with individuals and groups to learn skills to manage their health instinctively.  She is a licensed facilitator of the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Weight Management plan founded by Dr. Michelle May, author of Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat.   Luci also completed Intuitive Eating Pro Skills with Evelyn Trioble, MS, RD, coauthor of Intuitive Eating  and is currently working to become a Certified Intuitive Eating Coach.   As a member of the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, she holds a certificate in Adult Weight Management. 

Diagnosed with IBS, she has studied the FODMAP food plan to manage her symptoms and uses her knowledge to guide clients through the plan to reduce and/or eliminate the painful and often times frustrating diagnosis of IBS.   

Luci believes learning to eat and move mindfully and intuitively allows people

  • the freedom and relief from dieting, restriction and guilt
  • the confidence to be in charge of how they nourish themselves
  • the wisdom to eat exactly what they need to eat on any given day

She is passionate about using her skills to help clients achieve a personal body condition that emphasizes health and strength over weight and size.
