Welcome to the Purely Twins tribe #ptsisters

We are Lori and Michelle. Personal trainers, Michelle is a sports nutritionist, Lori is prenatal and postpartum fitness specialists. We are Mindful Active Lifestyle Coaches who focus on real foods, holistic living, daily movement and vibrant health to the world. Above all we are a guide to all looking to build self-love, transform their body/health, reach their highest goals and live their absolute best life.

We want you to know that you are not broken. You are enough. You deserve to be happy and healthy, and doing what you love to do in a body you love.  If you believe in yourself and do the work anything is possible.

As we grow and learn we adapt and change and share it with you! We hope you stick around as we would love to learn and grow with you.

We are very honest with our struggles here on the blog hoping it helps someone else not to give up! We want to show you whats possible for you to achieve as well.

Some common phrases you’ll see a lot: 

  • Be happy and fit in all parts of life.
  • Be purely you.
  • Workout less to live more.

What do they all mean? 

Be happy and fit in all parts of life means we share everything that helps you be your best, confident and stronger self! Not just physically but mentally, emotional, spiritually and financially fit too.  Through our journey we realized every part of your life affects your health and overall happiness. It’s important to find your balance healthy lifestyle, and we are here to help you find that.

Be purely you means just that be purely you. Be proud of yourself and let your soul shine through. The more you BE you the happier and better your life will be. There is no one like you so love you! We want to inspire you to love yourself unconditionally.

Workout less to live more means to workout smarter not harder and have your workouts give you the energy to live your life.

We used to be cardio junkies, gym rats…pretty much girls who lived at the gym. We thought we had to look a certain way in order to be loved, accepted and successful. This long battle of overexercising, restricting and binge eating lead us to have horrible digestion, skin problems (acne and eczema), hormone imbalances (missing periods and PCOS), depression and no self confidence. Through our darkest moments we learned to love ourselves and changed our mindset! Our lives slowly started to change the more we let go of the old stories and beliefs that were holding us back making us feel not good enough and created new ones that supported who we wanted to be.  So we now workout 30 minutes or less and have MORE TIME to do other things !! We no longer spend hours obsessing over exercise or food. We want the same for you.

  1. Hi girls,
    I’m very interested in your healing DR program. I am a former competitive athlete and typically whipping my body back into shape hasn’t been a challenge for me. I had twins six months ago (had them at 38 weeks, gained 54 pounds all of which I have lost) and my DR has gone from 5.5 fingers at my navel to about 3. It has closed up completely navel down, but navel up it is about 2.5 fingers. I do have an umbilical hernia which needs to be surgically addressed, but the doc’s and my PT would like to see my DR get a bit more healed. Before I purchase, does your program address upper DR? Thanks very much for your help.

    1. Hi girl, thanks for your comment. Yes my program addresses the full core including upper. Your entire midline will be healed. One another thing to think about is yours ribs, are they flared? This could be an issue to look into more to see if it helps your upper abs.

  2. I was told by my doctor after my second pregnancy that I have diastasis recti. I am so insecure about my belly and was starting to think that it can never be fixed before finding your video about your DR! I hope I can get my gap closed someday
