  • You want to feel better and have more energy.
  • You often feel guilty prioritizing yourself.

Hi, I'm Renee Bellinger

I am a health and nutrition coach with a MA in Counseling Psychology. My nutrition certification is from Precision Nutrition. I am also certified in Health Mindset Coaching , Sleep, Stress and Recovery, Menopause Coaching, and have a Coaching Credential in Nutrition and Metabolism. 
Before becoming a health coach, I was a Behavior Specialist at a therapeutic school and have 20 years of experience helping individuals identify problematic behaviors as and working toward behavior change.  
I learned to stop dieting due to the nutrition coaching I received six years ago. I will empower you to adopt habits to help you nourish and move your body while breaking the diet cycle. You will leave coaching with sustainable health habits and a repaired relationship with food and movement
Recently, I reached a point  where I wanted to feel better but realized that my habits of neglecting sleep and stress management were catching up to me.  Sleep and stress management help you feel better and are crucial to any transformation you seek.  
There are many coaches in the health space, but few are menopause- informed coaches who  combine behavior change with a health mindset. If you are not progressing toward your health and nutrition goals, I would love to chat with you.  

"The Thrive Community has helped me refocus on my mindset and behavior by tracking my diet and exercise. The challenges are motivating, and the workouts are great and easy to follow. I love the YouTube demonstrations of the moves, they are very clear. You can go at your own pace and take what you need.  I have lost 5-6 pounds over the last month due in part to this behavior and mindset shift! both Cheryl and Renee are great guides for this community!"


"There are two things I love in the Thrive Community right now. The important information and education were made easily accessible to us, and the workouts with Cheryl. I feel so fortunate to have such amazing resources right at our fingertips. Thanks, Renee and Cheryl."


"Thrive has been helpful to me on my wellness journey.  It has a comprehensive and informative app specifically designed for women over 40. It covers various aspects of wellness, including nutrition, workouts, menopause, and wellness strategies. One of the standout features of the Thrive community is its focus on teaching users about the science and chemistry behind hormonal fluctuations that occur with age. This knowledge can be empowering as it helps provide a better understanding. Overall, Thrive has been a valuable resource for me and many women seeking to enhance their wellness and navigate the changes that come with age."

A healthy diet is the cornerstone of optimal health during the menopause transition. Yet, less than 20% of American Women have a healthy diet during the menopause transition and beyond (GUNTER, D. J. (2021). Menopause manifesto.)
At least 80% of diets fail (Scientific American, Nov. 19, 2020)
Individuals who develop a growth mindset towards health and nutrition have healthier eating, fewer setbacks after weight loss, and are more likely to increase exercise frequency 
The key to consistency is not doing the same thing every day but developing the skills to determine how to get the behavior done in various circumstances.  It is necessary to bridge the gap between what you intend to do and your behavior, and what is needed varies daily.

Meet Cheryl,


I am a Certified Personal Trainer, Nutrition Coach, and Cancer Exercise Trainer with over 25 years of experience in the fitness industry. 

I’m the owner of CLC Fitness, a virtual personal training business. Established in 2021. 

My goal is to teach my clients how to live a healthy lifestyle by prioritizing strength training and nutrition. How to figure out what works or doesn’t work for them. Learn how to commit to the process. Understand it takes time, effort, and patience because the journey gets harder as we age. But by working together we can make the hard part “fun” and the gains endless.

"Renee helped me realize my goals weren’t realistic and taught me to make them realistic and attainable! Now, I know how to make progress by setting baby-step goals, building upon them as I go. By reshaping my goal expectations, my perfectionist behaviors have also been reduced and I recognize when I’m self-sabotaging!"


"Renee focuses on the why, helps you reach your goals in small attainable steps, models the same behaviors that she preaches and most powerful, to me, puts an emphasis on mindset and mindfulness as a tool to help adjust your relationship with food and movement. It was cathartic to hear that no food is inherently good or bad and the concept that my mindset and disordered relationship with food wasn’t fixed. What?! Losing fat without insane restrictions?!?? Impossible!!!!"

Behavior change takes time! 

Developing a habit can take up to 256 days which is why you find yourself returning to your behaviors after a 30-day challenge.  Don’t be ashamed, I made the same mistake myself for years without even realizing it-and it’s not your fault.

P.S. Compassionate health behavior change is the most effective way to be active and healthy as you age. You will develop the tools to have more energy, sleep better, and move better as you age.

"Working with Renee has brought so much light into my life. She met me where I was at in life pushing me to expand my definition of health because it is more than my weight. My sleeping patterns have improved, I’m eating to meet my goals but not on a diet. Most importantly, my confidence in myself has grown immensely and that has not giving to do with the number on the scale."

Jess C.

"Renee has helped me to get to the root of WHY I have the patterns and relationships with food and the eating that I do. This has allowed me to begin to unpack healthy behaviors and create new practices to lead me towards my goal."
