  • About

  • Hello and welcome. I am Laura Koenig Rivkin, Owner & CEO of A Whole New You, Inc. My company incorporates health coaching, personal training and nutritional/lifestyle counseling.

    My mission is to teach others how to take charge of their own health and learn how to prevent disease through nutrition and exercise.

  • I am a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University, with a Bachelor of Science Degree, as well as, a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition with a certification as a Holistic Health Coach. I am trained in all the different dietary theories, eastern and western nutrition, modern health issues, personal growth and development, and health counseling. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. I am also Board Certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.

    Additionally, I am Certified as a Personal Fitness Trainer from the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America. I have been training clients for over 13 years and specialize in back and neck ailments. Having scoliosis and prescribed weight training by my doctor to strengthen my back at the age of 12 1/2 and have continued for over 35 years, has taught me firsthand, that strengthening the back muscles is key to not only building muscle, as well as, being able to function on a daily basis with flexibility and mobility to perform daily tasks.

    I was diagnosed with many conditions from childhood to adulthood. My learning lessons, healing and over 30 years of research in nutrition and health, will serve as a guide for you towards your optimal health and well-being.

    My struggle from birth trauma, to tragically losing my dad at age 10, to being diagnosed with scoliosis at age 12, to then getting Epstein Barr Virus/Chronic Fatigue in my late teens to then developing candida, and also (unaware then) a digestive disorder, has brought me where I am today. I got fed up with being sick all the time, and took a stand for myself starting in my 20’s. Little did I know, all the medications I took in my younger years and eating incorrectly for my body, created a whole host of problems with my health, mentally and physically. The healing process that I discovered over the years, is something remarkable.

    I am considered a healer, gifted, intuitive, compassionate, heart-centered coach who truly cares about each and every client. My success in helping you reach your goals is the greatest gift of all. Seeing you healthy and happy and have the ability to function optimally once again, puts a bright smile on my face! You can count on me motivating you with healing your body, from the inside out, be it through exercise, nutrition and making lasting lifestyle changes.
