"I have lost 10 lbs!! I have lost an inch in my chest and half an inch on my hips. I definitely feel better and have more energy. I wish this could go on forever! " 



"After 3 months on the program, my husband lost 25 pounds and I lost 19. It has become a way of life for us and we are forever grateful to Alexandra and Shed for the Wed."



"...I felt different—good different. I was losing weight, my energy levels were up, my skin was clearer. By my wedding day, I felt so good in my body: slender, strong, confident, glowing. I felt beautiful."

Bridal Bootcamp 8 Week Program

Program Overview

This plan has been crafted to be your go-to resource in building your healthiest, sexiest self pre-wedding and to set you up for healthy habits going into marriage. It will help you lose weight and feel your best during an exciting and crazy time. It is a shift in lifestyle, and one that I hope you will take with you as you start this next phase of your life.

How is this plan designed? And why?

The Shed for the Wed program is designed to help you lose weight by optimizing your blood sugar levels.

My name is Alexandra Hayden Shea and I am a board certified holistic health coach.


I started on my health journey without even realizing it back in 2012. I left my stressful corporate advertising job in Chicago behind to head to Sydney, Australia for a much-needed change of pace.  Before I had very little time or energy to prepare food for myself after working long hours. Take-out was my life. I suffered from adrenal fatigue, caused by chronic stress from work. I was deficient in vitamin D, which was causing seasonal affective disorder. I was depressed, exhausted, and did not feel good in or about my body.

When I arrived in Sydney, I was overwhelmed by the focus on healthy, organic foods, and living an active lifestyle. After some encouragement from a colleague, I decided to hop on the fitness train and resolved to run my first half-marathon. It was amazing, I felt so empowered after I passed that finish line! Despite having accomplished such a huge physical feat, I realized that after months of training, I didn’t feel any skinnier. I had subconsciously been trying to get back to my pre-college weight, but this was a reality check that I needed to change the way I was eating in order to change my body.

My path to wellness has been quite the journey (and continues to be!) It started with a few healthy recipes, then books, then moving back to the States and studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. As a food enthusiast, I always had thought that eating healthy meant eating boring. Throughout this process, I learned I could not have been more wrong. Food CAN be delicious and healthy.  And eating well feels good in your soul. And I am all about that!

I love working with soon to be brides (I’m a newlywed myself!). I hope you enjoyed getting to know me and I hope I can help you with your health goals. Holler at me below!
