VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Nowadays, it seems like many celebrities have a personal chef and a nutritionist to help them maintain their slim and lean bodies.

Now, many South Georgians can feel like those celebrities thanks to a new business called My Trainer’s Meals.

Three years ago, personal trainer Janelle Mullis moved to South Georgia and quickly noticed the abundance of fast food restaurants.

“I could see from driving on the road that there were no healthy options. And I come from Jacksonville where there are healthier options and a little more of a variety,” Mullis adds.

While training her clients, she also noticed that many people didn’t have the time to prepare their own healthy meals.

So with the scarcity of healthy, convenient options and people not having the time to prepare their own food, Mullis decided to start her own business.

“We decided to partner up with a local, licensed caterer and started pumping out as many meals as we could to help as many people that wanted our service,” Mullis adds.

According to Mullis, My Trainer’s Meals provides fresh, proportional meals for people who want to live a healthier lifestyle.

Those interested can order online and choose their meals by noon Saturday. Then, delivery and pick-up takes place on Monday and Tuesday of the following week.

My Trainer’s Meals is located in Valdosta, but Mullis has organized pick-up locations all throughout South Georgia.

For example, those who order in Albany can pick-up their orders at Freeze-629 off North Westover Boulevard.

“You can work your butt off. You can burn a lot of calories in the gym, but if you’re not feeding yourself right then you’re not going to see progress,” Mullis says.

Mullis says she’s seen some customers drop thirty pounds due to staying disciplined in the kitchen.

The entrepreneur hopes to continue perfecting her meals and hopes to offer all organic options sometime in the future.
