Studies show that people looking to improve their fitness and improve their health achieve significantly greater results when using a personal coach. An effective coach can guide you, motivate you, and educate you. I will help you define your wellness goals and then achieve them. I work with both individuals and organizations seeking to improve the wellness and productivity of their employees. I have a year long program designed to overhaul your eating and exercise habits to produce lasting lifestyle change, or we can work shorter term to achieve personal wellness goals ranging from weight loss, to better sleep, to reducing blood pressure, or to completing your first 1/2 marathon! Coaching can be done in person, or via the phone and video calls.
I decided to pursue wellness coaching in 2009 because of my firm belief that a balanced, wellness-focused life is important not only for health, but also for personal well-being and fulfillment. Wellness includes nutritional, physical, spiritual, personal, and fiscal health. A wellness coach works as an ally to help you achieve your wellness goals. The accountability and encouragement is what makes a wellness coach better and more successful than just using any of the multitudes of wellness apps available. Having a partner that helps you determine realistic goals, and who helps plot the path to reach those goals, and who is in touch with you weekly to see how you are doing, makes a huge difference. You, the client, are responsible for achieving the results. However, having a wellness coach will help you define and set attainable goals, and I will support you in the process of achieving those goals.

It's been really helpful having the accountability these last 6 months. I haven't always done what I needed to do, but when I haven't, it hasn't been because I wasn't thinking about the choice. I sometimes chose to eat something that I shouldn't have, but when I haven't, it hasn't been because I wasn't thinking about the choice. I sometimes chose to eat something that I shouldn't have, or to be lazy instead of exercise, but no longer did I make that choice without being aware that (a) my fitness would be affected and (b) I was going to have to 'fess up to Kate! As a result, there were many, MANY, times I chose to go with the lesser evil (or even something healthy) on food, and to get up and exercise when I might otherwise have just sat on the couch. - J.B.
I appreciate your support so much these last couple months!! - S.M.
