CREATING WELLNESS THROUGH AWARENESS

Who is Amaadi?

 

My journey as a wellness practitioner started at home, because movement was a must in my family. When my brother and I were young, my mother woke us up before sunrise to bike or jog around the neighborhood before school. So, movement has always been a part of my life. My mother made sure of it.

I added healthy nutrition habits to my movement practices in college while studying Spanish. There, I became a vegetarian and delved into researching food and how the body reacts to it. Combining the two were the building blocks for developing a body that felt efficient, healthy, and strong.

I needed all of the strength I could find when, in January 2016, I took my mother to the hospital for surgery because she’d developed colon cancer. Ten days later she passed away. Six months after that, I was laid off from work. Completely devastated by these events, I took time to heal and cope with the loss of my mother, and to figure out what my next career move would be. It was during this time that I decided to water the seeds of movement and wellness that my mother had planted in me, and grow a business. I wanted to dedicate my life to motivating other women of color to move, eat healthy, and to make self care a priority so that they can make health the legacy that they leave for their children and loved ones. 

D. Amaadi Coleman, mother, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Group Exercise Instructor, nutrition lifestylist, and holistic healing advocate, has been a movement artist all her life. From gymnastics to swimming to Capoeira, she made movement an integral part of her lifestyle from an early age. She is a former athlete and continues to strengthen her natural skill for fitness in the gym and her love for Latin dance on the dance floor. In addition, she is a fitness and fashion model. 

Amaadi understands the importance of the balance between fitness, food, and lifestyle.  She combines her 20+ year vegetarianism and natural detox strategies with physical movement and overall healthy mindset to create holistic living for others. She is gifted with designing customized wellness programs for women and also teaches a wide variety of online fitness classes. Being bilingual in Spanish, she has worked in the Black and Latino communities as a fitness instructor and coach for the B’more Fit for Healthy Babies citywide program. Amaadi has given numerous motivational speeches, interviews, and presentations at women’s shelters, conferences and online radio shows. 

After naturally healing her own diastasis, Amaadi successfully completed the Tupler Technique training in naturally healing this condition. She now educates and heals women of color in natural diastasis healing. She holds a B.A. in Criminology and Criminal Justice and M.A. in Public Policy.
