Way of Gray started as a protest.
A rebellion, really.
A rebellion against all the extreme, unsustainable diets and trends disguised as healthy lifestyles.
And it’s grown into a movement that’s focused on one goal:
Empowering you to live and enjoy your happiest and healthiest life.
Sounds great, right? But what does that look like?
It boils down to 3 simple truths. These truths are the guiding principles at Way of Gray.
TRUTH #1: Your healthy lifestyle is about what works for YOU.
Living your happiest and healthiest life isn’t about counting calories, spending hours at the gym or a crazy morning routine with a zillion steps.
It’s not about beating yourself up if you indulge in some cookies or skip a workout.
It’s not even about hitting a magic number on the scale, fitting into a certain size jean or getting to picture perfect bikini selfie status.
A healthy lifestyle is about balance and loving yourself.
Some days that means kale chips, yoga class and lemon water.
And other days that means eating chips and cookies, ordering an extra margarita at happy hour, skipping a few days (or even weeks) of workouts and binge watching every rom-com on Netflix.
There’s room in a healthy lifestyle for all of those things. (Really!)
TRUTH #2: A healthy lifestyle is a mindset.
Thigh gaps and six-pack abs don’t equal health or happiness.
Everyone struggles with some form of limiting beliefs, no matter their shape or size. Self-doubt, depression, anxiety and self-loathing can latch onto anyone.
But your happiness, confidence and self-esteem aren’t really tied to what you see in the mirror or on the scale.
Those things come from how you feel about yourself and how you treat yourself.
So what does that mean?
It means you don’t have to lose 50 pounds to feel confident.
You just have to lose the negative mindset that’s dragging you down.
The key to your happiest and healthiest life is inside you!
And it starts the moment you realize you’re worthy of your own love.
TRUTH #3: A healthy lifestyle can (and should) fit effortlessly into your life.
It’s true: healthy living isn’t always easy. But it can be simple, fun AND affordable. There are so many things you can do to effortlessly incorporate healthy habits into your everyday life. (Get instant access to our 15 favorites here.)

My name is Sophie Gray and I built Way of Gray for you!
See, I spent years believing that I would be “enough” once I hit a certain weight, measurement and jean size. I struggled (and still struggle!) with low self-esteem and self-doubts.
But on my journey to become a Certified Nutritionist and Personal Trainer, I realized I had it all wrong.
Healthy living isn’t about hitting some magic (mythical) shape, size or weight. It’s about loving and being yourself! The mirror and scale are always changing. The only constant is you.
That realization changed my life.
I could finally give myself permission to find what worked for me.
And what works for me are things that make me happy.
That’s why I don’t believe in crazy routines. I love simple wellness habits that I can easily incorporate into my daily life.
That includes anything chai latte or chocolate related. I’m a chocolate fanatic and always testing bars with a crazy high cacao content.
I just love food. (Like, a lot.)
I live in Edmonton, Alberta with my furbaby Rio. He’s an adorable little ball of mischief and his favorite pastime is walking on the table (where he’s not allowed) and attacking my legs for no reason.
Sometimes I skip a few days (or weeks) of workouts. Because hey, life happens!
And I still wear (and adore) my snowman pajamas from 8th grade. #winning
I can’t wait to help you build YOUR happiest and healthiest life.
Let’s get started!
