Founder | MUM |MINDFULNESS | FITNESS

After the unexpected death of her mother and breakdown of her marriage, successful career woman and mother Sarah W asked herself “Are you happy?”.

Sarah grappled with the feelings and answers that came back and decided that she had spent her first 33 years trying to please everyone else in her life, to the point where she didn’t even know who she was anymore besides the ‘mask’ she put on for the outside world.

She felt empty, she felt alone and she felt like something was always missing.

Sarah then decided to live a life on her own terms, to live a life with purpose. She decided that the constant battle for the perfect body, career, kids and everything else was no longer her priority and her priority was to find happiness in herself just as she was and to teach other women to do the same.

Sarah reflected on her 15 years of corporate leadership experience and university education and realized that women flourish in an environment of vulnerability, kindness and support and that there are not many places you can find that.

This is when WTribe was born. Sarah left the stability of her career and the safety of everything she knew and decided to invest everything she had into WTribe. It’s more than a fitness program. WTribe encompasses Mindfulness, Fitness and Tribalness. It’s a place where women feel REAL, they are ENOUGH, they learn to LOVE THEMSELVES just as they are and from this place, they begin to flourish.

In its first 12 months, hundreds of women have been empowered by their WTribe, which has inspired Sarah to take this movement further. To create a global movement of women empowering each other and accepting ourselves just as we are. Creating a movement where women are healthy in both mind and body and feel a responsibility to bring other women on this journey too.

At WTribe our Values are based on kindness, vulnerability and accountability. So come along prepared to learn to love yourself and put your wellness as a priority.

strong | MIND | Fitness

For as long as I can remember I suffered from body image issues. From the age of 12 to 21 I tried every fad diet and workout plan. I lost weight many times, but no matter how much weight I lost I still saw the ‘fat’ girl staring back in the mirror. Because of this, I gained the weight back every single time. The scale shouldn’t have had ANY impact on my self-worth whatsoever, but it did. It consumed me, so much so that eventually I turned to restricting, bingeing and purging. I didn’t do this EVERY day, but it certainly became a very regular occurrence. I never thought I had an eating disorder though, because how could I when I wasn’t skinny or how could I when I wasn’t doing it 24/7?.. Looking back now, I obviously realise just how unhealthy my mindset was.

Let’s fast forward to now, what’s changed? I LOVE MYSELF, I truly do. I know that I am worthy. I know that my weight or the way I look don’t define who I am. I know that being a good person, living by my values and fulfilling my purpose is what’s really IMPORTANT.

How does this have ANYTHING to do with strength training you may ask? Well, strength training has been a HUGE factor in my journey of learning to love myself. For me, learning to lift weights, seeing what my body was capable of and becoming strong allowed me to see past what my body looked like, because it made me focus on what it COULD DO instead. The more confident I got with my lifting, the more confident I became in myself. Likewise, the stronger I got with my lifting, the stronger I became in myself. It amazed me just how EMPOWERING it was to pick up some metal and put it back down.

Strength training benefited my life in so many ways, and I truly believe it will do the same for yours. Enjoy the journey.

NICKY SALIBA

DIETICIAN | NUTRITIONIST

My name is Nicole and I am a passionate sports nutritionist and Dietitian. I started my business Eatsense in 2013 because I truly love helping people, seeing them happy and watching them thrive when it comes to their health and wellbeing. My vision is to help as many people learn to prioritise themselves, feel their best, enjoy delicious and nourishing food and live a healthy life. I am one of three girls and feel that i have witnessed first hand the importance of having a healthy and balanced approach with our body’s, nutrition and eating.

My main area of expertise is in medical nutrition therapy, or using food as medicine to help prevent, treat or manage a range of medical conditions. More and more research is showing us how powerful nutrients are in preventing many conditions today. I have a special interest in women’s health, insulin resistance, diabetes, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

I am a non-diet dietitian who has witnessed first hand the negative consequences diets have on our body, and the many struggles people face today with weight, body image and emotional eating. Diets encourage restrictiveness, often lack essential nutrients, take all the pleasure and enjoyment out of eating, don’t work long term and are actually harmful for our health with research showing they increase the likelihood of weight-gain, binge-eating and depression. I am passionate about helping my clients improve their relationship with food and their bodies. After all, health should be inclusive of everybody, in every type of body. I truthfully believe that if we focus on being happy and prioritise all aspects of our health, then our weight will take care of itself.
