What is a Health Coach?
A Health Coach is a professional guide and mentor who empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health and supports them in making sustainable lifestyle choices. Health Coaches do not prescribe one diet or one way of living. Rather, they help people develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for their bodies. Some common areas where a Health Coach can assist include weight management, food cravings, sleep, energy, digestion, stress, and time management.
What types of clients do I work with?
I work with busy adults who have the time and motivation to improve their overall health and well-being. My most successful clients started with little knowledge and experience with exercise routines, stress management techniques, and healthy eating. My philosophy is that there is no one-way of eating or living that works for everyone, and consequently, I have had success working with people from all walks of life.
How soon will we see results?
Naturally, this will vary from person to person based on their current level of health and their willingness to participate. Nevertheless, even if the motivation isn’t there right away, that’s okay. I am skilled in inspiring clients to take action. My workshops, presentations, coaching sessions, and materials are interesting and engaging. By starting with small, achievable goals, my clients start seeing results rather quickly and are motivated to move on to larger goals.
What are my professional credentials?
I am an experienced wellness professional trained in fitness, healthy eating, lifestyle, and wellness coaching. I graduated as a Health Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science/Kinesiology from the University of Minnesota. I am also a certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor and Yoga teacher with over 20 years of experience.
What kind of services do I offer?
For health coaching and personal training, I either work one-on-one with individuals, or with small groups of 2-4 participants. For larger groups, I offer workshops and seminars on various wellness topics and fitness classes in a variety of formats. I also teach fitness classes in corporate settings.
