Getting Real Health - Holistic Health, Nutrition & Fitness Coach


Here's what some of my clients had to say about me! I'm privileged to have shared their journey with them and so proud of their success!

“I thought that I had no solution for my acid reflux problem. All the medications and tests didn’t seem to help. I started fearing sleep because of it. Just when I lost hope of ever getting rid of it, JoAnne stepped into the picture and had a plan for me. She put me on a regimen and guided me through every step. The elimination diet that she walked me through for days seems to be working for me. She is always there to answer any question. She has held my hand through my complaints and worries. I am eternally grateful for her help, friendship and knowledge.”

“Dealing with depression and stress had my body so unhealthy and worn out. My hair was thinner, I was the heaviest I’d ever been and things just seemed to be getting worse. Then I found JoAnne Romanelli and Getting Real Health. JoAnne is such an intuitive, informed and supportive health coach! Using her advice has allowed me to change my lifestyle and I am the healthiest I’ve ever been. I’ve lost over 60 pounds and feel more centered and energetic than I did in my twenties. Whether drinking the delicious Shakeology or trying one of her recipes, I have enjoyed this process more than I ever thought I could and I’m happy to know that ‘getting real’ means never having to go on a ‘diet’ again!”

Maureen, 37

“I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to have nutrition counseling sessions with JoAnne. I thought I had a great base knowledge of healthy eating but JoAnne helped me take that to the next level. She gave me many recipes and tips about food. She also gave me many exercise tips, and tools. JoAnne is much different from your average nutrition professional. She has a vested interest in everyone that she is helping. She responds to questions and concerns quickly. If there is a problem area with getting past something physically or psychologically she is right there, offering extremely helpful solutions. I would recommend joining JoAnne’s facebook page for daily tips and stories. She often shares hurdles that she or her family has overcome and many of her friends share their stories. She has established a very helpful and caring community. JoAnne didn’t just help me improve my overall nutrition and physical health, she stood by me as I went through insecurities and damaging negative self talk. She built me up constantly and always made me feel like I was not alone on my journey. Working with JoAnne will be one of the most positive experiences you’ll ever have and I can’t thank her enough for all the help she has given me and continues to give me on a daily basis.”

Angela, 32

“Working with JoAnne has changed my life!  Making simple changes in diet and lifestyle, incorporating more exercise and eliminating high-allergy foods has been key to giving me more energy and feeling healthy.  And JoAnne was with me every step of the way.  She is a miracle worker!!” 

Mia, 40

“Before meeting JoAnne, I had a love/hate relationship with foods. I was always on some type of fad diet and punishing myself for not having the willpower to stick with it. JoAnne helped me make peace with food and myself. For the first time, I am proud to say, I am NOT on a diet! I lost weight and feel amazing by understanding my emotional eating patterns. Thank you JoAnne!”

Jen, 39

“My whole life I struggled with weight, but once JoAnne put me on the right track with my health and fitness, I immediately started to see results. First, she got me working out with P90X, then she helped me get my diet under control. I had no idea I had sensitivities to gluten and dairy! With the changes in my diet, and after my second run through of P90X, I had lost 20 pounds and lowered my cholesterol from 210 to 160! I still want to lose more weight, but JoAnne has helped me get closer to my goal than I ever have been. I look and feel great, and I have JoAnne to thank for it.”

Anthony, 38

“I have suffered from IBS my entire adult life and learned to live with the pain that comes along with it. JoAnne is a very gentle and compassionate coach. She helped me see that certain foods combined with the stress of raising three small children were contributing to my IBS. She changed my diet and gave me stress management tips that were easy and very doable. My IBS is finally under control…for good!”

Lisa, 42

“A blessing. That is what JoAnne has been to me. For years I knew what I needed to be doing, but I did not know how to do it right. Through the Elimination Diet, that she walked me through step-by-step, I was able to see what foods were causing me the most problems. She introduced to a new way of thinking about what I ate and how to eat it. I have lost 20 pounds in the time I worked with her and then on my own. She is a tremendous support and extremely knowledgeable. You will only be doing yourself a favor by allowing her to be a part of your life.”

Sandy, 41

“I participated in JoAnne’s 10 Day Reboot program and it was a great experience. She was patient, extremely knowledgeable and non-judgmental when I had lapses in intake, timing or exercise. She made a number of low-cost, easy to implement and extremely helpful suggestions. I recommend her for anyone who needs to jump-start a program or reassess their current ‘operating system.’”

Eleanor, 53

“I took part in the 10 Day Reboot Program and I loved it! JoAnne gave me tips on how to eat healthy and lose weight. She gave me some great recipes too that were based on what my preferences were. It’s a great way to kick start a healthy lifestyle and after the 10 days, I felt better physically and mentally. I felt that I had more energy and I lost weight too! I plan on sticking with the program as much as I can. And JoAnne was so helpful during this time! I highly recommend this to everyone!

Juliette, 31

“After a 9 month plateau, I decided to try JoAnne’s 10 Day Reboot program. It was the one thing to finally shake things up! JoAnne is a pleasure to work with. She is very compassionate, non-judgmental and very understanding that everyone’s situation is different. She takes the time to listen to what is going on with you and really gets the details on your diet and exercise habits. Her recommendations are personalized and practical and her advice was right on and not difficult to implement. She has an amazing wealth of knowledge and thrives on sharing it in order to help you improve your health. I look forward to working with JoAnne in the future and highly recommend her program.”
