Coach Alexia Lewis is a registered dietitian, licensed (FL) dietitian / nutritionist, and certified health coach and personal trainer who believes life is better with science, humor, and delicious food. After surviving a heart attack in 2007 and battling with her weight for most of her adult life, she changed her career to spread the word about how food choices and activity can influence health.
This business, N.E.W. Motivation Coaching was founded in 2016. N.E.W. stands for nutrition, exercise, wellness. Coach Alexia is ready to help you balance these three aspects of a healthy lifestyle.
She found her passion in coaching as it allows her to become a partner to help people find their unique best way to reach their health goals. Alexia specializes in coaching people who are ready to ditch the diet mentality and shift focus to health improvement through quality nutrition, enjoyable activity, and finding balance with health and wellness. She promotes a realistic, flexible, small-steps approach that fits into people’s lifestyles no matter how busy they are.
Alexia is also an engaging health and wellness speaker and published author. She has coached thousands of patients and clients and is now paying it forward by helping other coaches polish their coaching skills.
We only staff health professionals with accredited training, hands-on experience, and state licensure (where required). Our coaches have completed accredited educational programs, had hands-on competency-based internships, and/or have passed national registration or certification exams.
We also partner with dietetic interns and undergraduates in health-related fields who are working towards becoming health professionals to help them build their skills to attain licensure and certification.
