Behind the Fitness Meals





Chef Jake Belmonte is a chef instructor and culinary educator at the University of Hawaii's Maui Culinary Academy, the premier culinary school in the state. Many chefs and cooks now working at Hawaii's top restaurants were under his tutelage.

Jake encourages his students and future chefs to support sustainable farming and responsible cooking by working with seasonal products and using fresh, unprocessed ingredients. It is this passion that led him to start Maui Lifestyle Fitness + Meals.

Before becoming a chef instructor, Chef Jake was very instrumental in the progressive development of the Food & Beverage department of the Fairmont Kea Lani for 16 glorious years. He was the iconic figure in conceptualizing and as the pioneering Chef of a plantation inspired restaurant, Ko.

The rock behind Chef Belmonte's drive is his lovely wife, Leah. Health coach and wellness authority, Leah Belmonte, helps people feel and be their best through nutritional, fitness and lifestyle guidance. She believes that every day decisions, no matter how small, if made with positive intentions can accumulate to a lifetime of great health.

Leah received her Health Coach Certification from Institute for Integrative Nutrition. According to CNN, Integrative Nutrition is "a pioneer in the movement towards preventative health care and stands out as the largest and fastest growing nutrition school in the world." Prior to becoming a health coach, Leah was in human resources management for more than 15 years with an emphasis in corporate wellness advocating the importance of keeping employees healthy and confident.

As parents to two active children, both Jake and Leah strive to be good role models by living an active and balanced lifestyle, enjoying healthy meals and teaching them self-care to ensure they develop healthy habits as they grow.

Maui Lifestyle Fitness + Meals is based on Maui, Hawaii focused on practicing and sharing, that life must be Balanced, Nutritious, and Delicious.
