ABOUT

Glow Fitness is a women's only virtual and       

in-home personal training service owned by me, Abby Branch. It is a service for women in all stages of life to be nurtured, strengthened, supported, and educated in the comfort of their own home!

Have you ever struggled with an autoimmune disorder, pre/postpartum issues, severe menstrual periods or other cycle symptoms, reproductive issues, old injuries that won't fully resolve, or losing weight?

I offer personal training and dietary guidance that is unique to each clients' needs, including, but not limited to those who...

 

-are post-physical therapy patients

-suffer from autoimmune disorders (Hashimoto's, hypo/hyperthyroid, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.)

-experience painful or intense  menstrual cycles

-struggle with reproductive issues

-have back pain/injuries

-suffer from epilepsy, asthma, or heart issues

-struggle with pelvic floor issues

-are pre/postnatal (if you've ever had a baby, you're postnatal!)

-are older adults

-are post-menopause ladies

 

The latest fitness and diet research is showing how women's bodies need to be nurtured and supported more than anything else. That includes tailoring how we eat, live, and move to our cycles and circadian rhythms and getting full blood panels to check thyroid and micronutrient levels.

 

 When we work together, you will also learn how to...

 

-incorporate functional movement into your daily life

-how to NOT over-exercise

-eat intuitively with the appropriate macronutrients - NO CALORIE COUNTING

-create a new lifestyle for yourself!

Because your health is more important than anything else!

 

I provide one on one personal training either virtually or in-home. I also provide a 6 week program called  The Glow Reset - an in depth, specific, and unique program that enables you to break free from old, unhealthy habits that no longer serve you, and allows you to establish new, more fulfilling and less stressful habits. This isn't a diet, it's a LIFESTYLE.

Abby Branch

Having spent over 14 years in the health & fitness industry, I bring a diverse experience of supporting and nurturing women's health, including autoimmune disorders, physical therapy, women's weight loss, prenatal/postnatal fitness and health, fitness and yoga class instruction, and personal training. 

 

My particular focus on women's health began in 2010, when I worked as an intern at a women's weight loss retreat center in Vermont. After I became certified as an Exercise Physiologist, I moved to Atlanta, GA and worked at the CDC as a Health Fitness Specialist. In 2012, I moved back to my home city, Nashville, TN, and worked in physical therapy as an Exercise Physiologist. I also decided to offer in-home personal training and teaching fitness classes part time, which then became full time. I wanted to pursue specifically women in the fitness industry, as I believe they have been at a disadvantage for decades. In the fall of 2015, Abby and her husband Wesley decided to venture west to Bellingham, WA. After having our two girls, Rosalyn and Emma, I was diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder, Hashimoto's, and hypothyroidism. I've spent the last four years dialing in my own health, along with doing extra research and education on autoimmune disorders, insulin, blood sugar balancing, and weight loss.  

 

As a family and with our dog Pip, we love going on adventures like hiking, camping, and low tide exploring.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and I am certified as an Exercise Physiologist by The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
