Maija Malzacher

My name is Maija, although it isn’t easy for people to pronounce when they see it spelt out like this! It is pronounced like Maya. I am very excited to serve as Dakota Family Weight Loss’s head coach.

I am from a tiny town outside of Duluth, MN. Most people from the area haven’t heard of it. I am getting married in September to my best friend Steve. I love swimming, hiking/adventures, reading, and traveling. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled with my family in the last two years across the US, including Hawaii, and various countries in Europe.

I first knew I wanted to spend my life helping people when I had to start taking care of one of my favorite people as he battled a terminal disease. I was able to learn so much about how the body worked. I combined my love of health and sports and got my bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology. I have worked with a wide range of individuals in my previous experience. I’ve worked with phenomenal athletes as well as individuals getting out of heart surgery with people ranging 8 to 106 years old. I loved working with them all.

My goal is to help you lose weight by using the Ideal Protein protocol, but also help you figure out how you want to live your life after you lose the weight. I like to think of ways to implement a healthier living style into peoples’ lives that are specific to them. I have followed the protocol myself and found ways I could change my life that really didn’t inhibit me from doing the things that I love. I would love to help you achieve your weight loss and healthier lifestyle goals!

My favorite quote has always been “Nothing is impossible. For the word itself says ‘I’m possible’.“ by Audrey Hepburn. When things start getting hard, challenge yourself to keep going. I guarantee you won’t regret it!

Today is the chance to change yourself for the better! There is no better time than now to start living healthy!
