Hi, my name is Roland Denzel, and I grew up fat.
I was just a normal guy, who finally learned to be healthy at 35 and now helps others through skill-based weight loss
I grew up chubby and sedentary, and when I was about thirty-five, I decided it was time to take care of my health. At the time I had two little kids and a stressful job, and my lifestyle was catching up with me.
Around 2003, I lost a lot of fat and a lot of weight (is 110lbs a lot?), and I’ve kept it off ever since. Although I have to say that I’ve added back a lot of muscle, too. Today I’m about 200 pounds, but leaner than I was when I was at my all-time low of 160 pounds!
In the years since, I learned a lot, and my quest to get well morphed into a passion for fitness and nutrition that I didn’t know I had hidden inside of me.
That passion has led to competing and training in Kettlebell Sport, in addition to becoming an IKFF certified kettlebell coach.
I became a fan of movement quality, and trained as a Nutritious Movement Restorative Exercise Specialist, focusing on helping everyday people, just like you and me to move and feel better.
I’ve always been passionate about food and cooking, and I’m proud to say that my weight loss journey has also spawned an interest in healthier eating. I’m a self-taught cook, unless you count Sunset Magazine and Better Homes and Gardens as teachers. A large part of my nutritional education comes from Precision Nutrition, where I got my certification as a Precision Nutrition Coach.
I’m a strong advocate of what we call a “real food” diet, which is based on the way our ancestors tended to eat. We don’t need to look back millions of years to learn what’s good for us to eat, though. We only have to look back a few hundred years to see types of foods that humans are meant to eat.
In 2018, I left a lifelong career in the corporate world to focus on building Eat Move Live 52 together with my wife Galina, and to fulfill the dream of writing and publishing my first novel.
I hope you join one of my Breakthrough weight loss coaching groups or read one of our books!
Hi, my name is Galina Ivanova Denzel and I help people thrive through moving and eating better
It’s been a joy coaching alongside Roland and we’ve been truly blessed to have the complementary skills and passions to help a wide range of clients with different needs and at various skill levels.
In my practice I combine my skills and experience as a longtime health and wellness coach and movement specialist with my skills and insight in healing the nervous system.
I am a Nutritious Movement Restorative Exercise Specialist, Somatic Experiencing and NARM practitioner, as well as a Somatic Practice Practitioner – and I combine and use all my skills and education to support clients who need a holistic approach to healing.
I specialize in supporting clients with chronic and persistent pain, recovery from emotional eating, as well as syndromes such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune illness. I work in private, in coaching groups and through workshops and retreats all over the world.
I also have a boutique practice creating content for organizations and corporations to reduce burnout and increase work productivity and resiliency through combining nervous system healing, and a whole food and natural movement approach.
More than just writing and coaching partners…
Oh, in case you’re wondering, in addition to writing together, we are husband and wife. We actually met through our passion for health and writing, then fell in love while writing our first book together!
After a long period of living on two continents, we got married in beautiful Southern California, and we plan to live healthy, fit, and happily ever after. We’ve recently moved to Longmont, Colorado, so if you are in the area, please drop us a line and invite us for a hike or a cup of coffee!
Our latest book is “Eat Well, Move Well, Live Well – 52 ways to feel better in a week,” a collection of 52 weekly lessons from our latest decade of teaching and coaching. It’s our favorite book so far, because it focuses on super simple steps that stack up quickly, leading to a healthy, happy life, all year long! It also won the gold in health from Indie Foreword in 2017 – which makes us so incredibly proud!
You can find “Eat Well, Move Well, Live Well,” and all of our books at EatMoveLive52.com/books.

Thanks for stopping by, Anita!
