Welcome to Shiner Nutrition and Fitness!
Sharon is passionate about nutrition, food and fitness and combines them together to help people set and reach their nutrition goals, move better and feel better.
Sharon has been involved in nutrition and fitness for a combined total of over 20 years. She has been involved in group exercise since the mid 80s, when as an overweight teenager, she discovered the importance of exercise to both body and mind. Sharon went on to teach group fitness in college and shortly after getting her Masters of Science degree in Biology, was certified to teach Spinning. On a brief hiatus from working in corporate America, Sharon attended the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts for their Professional Chef program. She continued to work in corporate America until the time was right, and in 2008 she left to start Thyme To Cook Personal Chef Service and Nutrition Coaching. Since then, Sharon has cooked for, coached and educated her clients about changes they can make to support a more healthy lifestyle.
On her quest to make her lifestyle as healthy as it could be, Sharon passed the StrongFirst kettlebell instructor certification, both Levels I and II. Kettlebell training is an integral part of the work Sharon does to support her healthy lifestyle and she uses it with clients to improve and enhance their lifestyles as well. Sharon continues to teach Spinning and is also certified in TRX, Ground Force Method and as personal trainer.

Sharon is a Certified Personal Trainer through ACE. One mode of training that she loves to offer is kettlebell training; a kettlebell is a traditional Russian cast iron weight that looks like a cannonball with a handle. The kettlebell offers all around fitness: strength, endurance and conditioning, making it an efficient tool to train with. It’s important to find a qualified instructor to work with to learn proper and safe technique. Sharon also trains with barbells, free weights and focuses on mobility and strengthening through body weight exercises.
