VIP Private Coaching with Summer Innanen Logo

Hi – I’m Summer Innanen, professionally trained coach through the internationally renowned Coaches Training Institute (CTI), specializing in body image, self-worth and confidence, and best-selling author of Body Image Remix.

I’ve also completed The Playing Big Facilitator’s Training by women’s leadership expert, Tara Mohr, where I mastered coaching techniques to help women overcome self-doubt and fear.

I left the corporate world to work full-time on my coaching business in 2012 and have since helped hundreds of people break free from societal expectations and live their lives beyond the scale.

I’ve spent years honing my craft and learning tools and frameworks to help clients change their relationship with their bodies. I love to teach other professionals how to make radical shifts with their clients and feel confident saying they help clients with body image.

VIP Private Coaching with Summer Innanen Logo

Hi - I’m Amapoundcake - an influencer, writer, activist, body image coach, and speaker from Sanford, Florida. I’m very passionate about the impacts that beauty standards have on Women and girls, food insecurities, race relations, and Women’s rights.

I’ve been a speaker at Harvard University, University of Ottawa, Bethune Cookman University and more about race, beauty, and other related topics. I’ve been featured on ABC's  Tamron Hall Show, Dr. Phil and The Sisaundra Show.

During the pandemic, I worked alongside physicians to help minimize anti-fat bias in health care. In 2021, I partnered with the Seminole County health department to decrease food disparities in low income communities. I received the Solidarity Award from Job with Justice award and has been nominated for several 2023 awards for change. One of them being the 30 under 30 Global Brand Award.

I’m dedicated to reimaging beauty. I launched my own products highlighting the beauty of fat Black Women, who I believe have been negatively impacted by a long history of anti-Black beauty standards.

"The Body Image Coaching Certification is a powerful course that helped me provide better, more effective services to my client and also gave insight on some of the limiting beliefs that I had packed away and stopped addressing. I highly recommend this course to coaches, and others in the helping profession because the tools and techniques taught by Dani and Summer empower, uplift and heal. Definitely 5 Stars!"Terri L.

"This program gave me the confidence and the tools to say that, yes, I CAN help clients with increasing body image tolerance and resilience. Already my clients are starting to experience what it is to inhabit their lives from the inside of their bodies rather than constantly viewing themselves from the outside. I’ve come away with a boatload of tools to help clients build body image resilience. The in-session demos were invaluable in seeing how it all works! My advice is to DO IT…You’ll feel so much more confident in helping your clients navigate body image healing."Glenys Oyston (she/her)
