Candice Brumit, Weight Loss Coach


My name is Candice Brumit, and I’m the new certified weight-loss coach here at Square ONE. I have lived in Colorado since 1994, and I love the mountains! I love playing volleyball and basketball, and working out! I’m very passionate about nutrition and chiropractic, and they both allow me to continue to do the things I love to do!

It’s truly amazing to me how the body functions perfectly when it has all the essential nutrients, protein, and exercise! I have previous experience with Ideal Protein from another office, and I’ve been a fitness coach for 3 years. I also have certifications in Power Plate, K4 hot laser, J Tech, and Rocktape. I’ve been a Chriopractic Assistant for over 5 years. I’m so excited to be a part of Dr. Chris’ team, and to help impact others to live a healthier, better quality of life!
