I’m Engrid and I gain so much joy from fostering relationships with my clients and teaching them how to re-connect with their bodies through movement. I am a business owner, a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and a personal trainer. In addition to training I also host the Liveng Proof Podcast and co-host an additional podcast Gal Pals.

More About Me:
However, I chose to transfer halfway through college to the University of New Hampshire, where I earned my B.S. in Biology. In 2013 I became an NASM certified personal trainer, which coincided with the start of my own business: Liveng Proof, LLC. I’ve worked as a trainer ever since. I am now a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).
I have worked with a variety of clients over the years, including those with a history of an eating disorder, exercise addiction, or just a rocky relationship with exercise/ their bodies. And although not all my clients battle these things to the same degree, I have yet to work with someone who hasn’t struggled to some extent with their relationship with food or their body.
I absolutely love working with my clients and consider it a privilege that I get to participate in their journey to guide them in the deepening of their relationship to their body and to assist in the restoration of their relationship with movement and exercise.
I personally find it fascinating how our emotions show up in our physical bodies. If you listen to the Liveng Proof Podcast you can expect to hear all about how we deal with triggers, processing trauma, and personal growth. You’ll find topics centered around all things mental & emotional health, navigating diet culture, eating disorder recovery, addiction recovery, trauma recovery (are you seeing a pattern?).
And if you listen to Gal Pals, my second podcast that I co-host alongside my best friend Georgie Morley, you’ll hear us unpacking the sorts of things you discuss in therapy but with a best friend vibe. We chat about things like jealousy, letting go, having hard conversations, and body image.
In short, my podcasts and this blog are places that intend to provide you with tools and stories from myself and others, so that you can either repair or strengthen the most important relationship you have: the one with yourself.
What I Bring To The Table:
I’m not here to tell you what you should or shouldn’t do (I’m guessing someone has already tried to do that for you). I’m also not here to give you some step by step action plan, because I believe no one is a better expert and guide for you, than YOU. I’m also not here to pretend like I have it all figured out (cause I definitely don’t). I’m just here to share my personal experiences, what I’ve learned, what I’m still working through, and to hold space for others to share their experiences on my podcast.
I am so passionate about speaking on these topics because I myself battled anorexia and an exercise addiction for over a decade. I have been in therapy for nearly a decade and have dedicated so much time towards my own personal recovery.
I used to live in a world of comparison , I struggled to deal with any unexpected change (or just change from my routine in general). The struggles I faced , the messy road of my ED recovery journey have all lead me here with you. I am into self-discovery, practicing self compassion, self-care (something that was never modeled for me), and learning to share the beautiful messiness that is life with others.
The Gal Behind The Brand:
I’m Engrid (pronounced Ingrid), a curious 30-something who loves long walks, learning, traveling, & listening to podcasts! And it’s safe to say I’m pretty into personal growth. I’m a dreamer and love anything related to being cozy.
