Healix CEO & Founder, Becky White-Steensma, is a dedicated strength coach, Fascial Stretch Therapist & Massage Therapist with nearly 22 years of experience transforming bodies. Her passion to help her clients reach their physique goals comes from overcoming her own struggles.

“I put on a lot of weight after my son was born. I wasn’t in a good place. One day I looked in the mirror and said ‘that’s enough.’ I started treating myself like I was a client; wrote a training program, made and kept appointments, and stuck to my nutrition program. I made myself a priority.”

The result was a remarkable transformation story now used to spark clients’ transformations.
