We had the good fortune of connecting with Shelby Valentine and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shelby, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
My coaching focuses on self healing and self love. The only chance we have to heal the world is to turn inward, face our shadows, trauma, and darkness, and transmute our pain into purpose. I walk my clients through the depths of their experiences with body and food trauma & drama so that they can live a more embodied, alive, fulfilled, & aligned life.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m here to guide you to DEEP health & give you the roadmap to freedom so you can feel your best, love the sh*t out of your body, and step into a more aligned & alive life.

I’m here to teach you the Science & Spirit of all that is health, hold you accountable in unconditional love, & witness your healing from the inside out.

My toolbox is extensive & ever-expanding:

ACE Certified Personal Trainer
Precision Nutrition Certified Nutritionist
Usui Reiki Master (10th Generation)
1stPhorm Supplementation & Nutrition Education
My experience working with 100+ women in groups & 1:1 and leading them to life-changing transformations (mind, body, & soul)
My teachers & guides include: Amanda Bucci, Hannah Deindorfer, Vanessa Checchio, Asha Surti, Steven Jaggers, & most notably, Dara Blumenthal
My intuition. It is a deep & daily practice & relationship. My life is dedicated to my own spiritual & intuitive path. The deeper I go, the deeper my clients go. I am here to serve & share

Other Tools: Inner Child Work, Shadow Work, Parts Work, Meditation, Visualization, Breathwork, Guided Journaling, Somatics, NLP

What’s more important than my rap sheet is how passionate I am about holding the space I hold for my client’s humanity, the aligned life I embody daily, and the deep health I experience & am constantly in pursuit of. I walk the walk. I also love the sh*t out of my clients – they’re soul family.

I approach each client in a holistic, soul-centered way, giving them the space to compassionately examine their relationship with their bodies & souls. We do the inner work together: shadow work, limiting belief thought work, visualization, meditation, energy work & Reiki, breathwork, somatic practices, inner child healing, parent wound healing. I have many tools in my toolbox.

This inner work paired with the “outer work” & my expert custom health plans (including fitness, nutrition, supplements, & wellness rituals & routines) change the trajectory of my client’s lives.

This isn’t talk therapy, this is quantum healing & coaching.

We rewrite stories and rewire the subconscious. They step into bodies and lives that turn them on – yes, turn them on.

I do what I do because I know what it’s like to hate your body and self. I know what it’s like to feel lost, low & alone. I’ve overcome eating disorders, acute trauma, CPTSD, depression/anxiety & abuse. I didn’t always love myself, my job, and my life unconditionally.

But now I do. And I need you to know that it’s possible for you as well.

You can feel this aligned in your body & life too. I exist to lead you there.

You’re meant to love the sh*t out of your body & life.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would definitely get coffee at Theia’s uptown, Layla’s, & Synergy. We would hangout at the Juicery or Chocolatree for Lunch and get dinner at Natural Thai or Elote.

We would visit the Stupa and do at least one hike. Airport Mesa is my favorite. We would go to Crescent Moon to put our feet in the creek,

We would crystal shop and maybe receive Reiki. My friend Star at Gateway Cottage is incredible.

We might do a yoga class at the Hot Yoga Studio or take Tribal Hip Hop at Snap Fitness with Sara (where I am religiously every Thursday).

We would marvel at the mountains and they would be jealous that I live here (:

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
