Like you, wellness expert and author Marie-Josée Shaar has seen enough contradictory self-help advice to make her head spin. But her trained eye won't be fooled. Over the last 12 years of coaching, teaching, speaking, researching and testing smart health habits, MJ has helped hundreds of individuals go from overwhelmed to overjoyed with their lifestyle.  A Master of Applied Positive Psychology, she has worked with the best and brightest in motivating and sustaining a positive attitude. Also certified as a Personal Trainer and as a Nutrition and Wellness Consultant, MJ blends various sciences to create an "uncommon-sense" path to everyday fitness, wellness, and mindfulness.  MJ won't fuss over your weaknesses in order to fix them, nor will she prescribe a rigid path that feels arduous. Rather, she will show you how to leverage your strengths and harness your body's unique workings to improve your habits, even with minimal self-discipline. That's why her book Smarts and Stamina: The Busy Person's Guide to Optimal Health and Performance hit the Amazon Healthy Living Bestseller List only 3 weeks after its launch, and many times since.    Health is about everyday decisions, and is accessible to everyone. If you've been frustrated with your wellness efforts up until now - you'll find that MJ's approach works and lasts. Start today and you'll see for yourself why other wellness leaders call her "awe-inspiring".
