“Come, Mr. Frodo!’ he cried. ‘I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.
Hi, my name is Samantha Shaw, but many call me “Sam-Wise” in reference to the ever-faithful companion of Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. For just like that renowned character, Samantha finds the most joy in life when enabling others to succeed, and lending that helping hand as her clients reach the peak of their mountain.
Pop culture references aside, non-fiction Sam became a Registered Hypnotherapist in Washington State in 2020, under the tutiledge of Erika Flint of Cascade Hypnosis Center in Bellingham Washington. Additionally, Sam is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, with training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), and a Certified Personal Trainer via the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). It is an understatement to say that the health and fitness industry transformed her life. After 11 years in a corporate sales environment, Sam had hit that magic number on the scale that finally made her step into a gym and make the life-changing decision to hire a personal trainer, which quickly snowballed into a relentless desire to understand the human psyche; specifically, why we do the things we do, even when we know better, and how can we stop being our own worst enemy and start being the highest version of ourselves?
This quest led Sam to embrace a holistic mind-body-spirit approach, as she quickly came to learn that the human body is all interconnected, and treating these areas separately most often leads to limiting results. Now, as a personal trainer, health coach and hypnotist, Sam helps you develop the heart-set, mind-set, and then the skill-set to achieve and maintain your goals for life. Whether you are looking to lose weight, or working on other unwanted thoughts or behavioral patterns such as substance abuse, anger management, stress reduction, etc., Sam invites you to partake in a complimentary consultation, and get you started on your path to your best self.
