Nutritionists work one-on-one with clients to customize an approach to nutrition that takes into account health history, lifestyle, short- and long-term goals, and other factors.
Meet our Nutritional Counsellor
About Christa Fletcher Christa Fletcher is a registered holistic nutritionist and yoga teacher. She graduated from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN) and has a degree in psychology & linguistics from Carleton University. Her journey into nutrition therapy started with an accident. Years ago, she was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident that turned her life upside down. As someone who suffered from anxiety, she was first introduced to yoga to support her with this and then found her way into nutrition. She has experienced first-hand how the right foods improved her overall health and made a positive impact on her life. She wants to help others realize those same benefits. Her specialty is helping others optimize their gut health and reduce anxiety through non-restrictive meal planning. Christa provides a calm, caring, and transformative experience that is versatile and individualized to her client’s unique health journey. Christa believes food should always be enjoyed and never restricted. Her main goal is to help make informed nutrition choices more accessible to her clients and create a sustainable plan that brings healthful living within reach.
Appointments can be made with Christa in person at Heritage Fitness, by phone, or online through our app.
