If you are serious about your goals, there’s one step you can take to completely change the game. It can literally change everything.

And it’s something I personally do, too. I believe in it and know how POWERFUL it can be. 

It’s to WORK WITH A GREAT COACH. 

When you’re trying to reach your goals or achieve something you’ve never done before – a coach will help you get there FASTER and with less trial and error. 

If you’ve never worked with a coach before, let me fill you in on what to expect. 

  1. You’ll eliminate that overwhelmed feeling.

There is a TON of conflicting info out there about what you should do to get results (as well as how and when).

It can make your head spin. Working with a qualified coach who has a proven plan can help you quickly shift from overwhelm mode into ACTION (and results) mode!

  1. You’ll get help setting realistic goals and creating timelines.

A coach can help you pinpoint specific goals … and create a reasonable timeline to help get you there. This eliminates false starts, detours, and roadblocks along the way.

  1. You’ll actually follow through!

Accountability is EVERYTHING. 

It’s easy to break an appointment with yourself or to not follow through on your program if you’re the only one who knows about it.  Having a coach boosts your chances of 1) following through and 2) getting REAL results!

  1. You’ll be FIRED up.

Have you ever had anyone who is as excited about your progress as YOU are? A coach is your partner on your goal-getting journey, motivating you and supporting you from Day #1. 

They’ll help you celebrate when you reach your first goal –  and be there for you for all the goals to come!

  1. You’ll fast-track your results.

Great coaches know exactly what it takes to succeed and understand the fastest path to your goals. But (and equally as important) they’ll adjust the path to fit YOUR lifestyle and what you’re able to commit to right now … which will set you up for lasting success.

  1. You’ll realize you’re capable of more than you ever believed.

This is a life-changing part of the process that’s often overlooked. A coach will push you out of your comfort zone to do things that are challenging – helping you to 1) expand your boundaries and 2) gain confidence. 

  1. You’ll be truly proud of yourself.

Another life-changer. When you step out of your comfort zone and accomplish new goals, your self-efficacy grows. 

You know that you can count on yourself. And there are so many more benefits …

Heads up, I’ve got some controversial news for you today – but hang with me!  “Moderation” is one of the biggest buzzwords in wellness right now.  But guess what? It doesn’t work …Because almost everyone does it wrong. The fact is, what looks like “moderation” to one person might be something completely different for someone else. For food, your definition of “moderate” can depend on what you grew up eating, your current eating habits, or even your mood.

Are you a stress eater? Or meal skipper?

If you’ve ever had a stressful day (or year!) that affected your eating habits, you are NOT alone. In a study, more than 75% of adults said that stress played a role in their eating during the past month. This included overeating, eating junk foods, or not eating. Many of them said it happened weekly. They also said it made them feel sluggish, lazy, disappointed in themselves, and/or irritable.

When you’re tired of feeling tired

Have you ever been here before? Something sparked you to set a new fitness goal that you were REALLY excited about. Maybe you stepped on the scale after the holidays, had a big event coming up (reunion, wedding, vacation, etc.), were unhappy with the results from your latest doctor’s visit, watched an inspiring movie, were wowed by someone else’s transformation, or even had some kind of wake-up call…
