Coaching is not about telling you what to do. You probably know to be healthy you should eat vegetables instead of fast food. Not sit on your couch at the end of the day watching TV, but go to the gym after you get off work. Coaching is the missing link between knowing and doing. It’s more than telling yourself “to not be afraid” or to “just do it.” It’s about creating behaviors and thoughts that stick rather than forcing yourself to do it and constantly falling into failure.
The process is understanding the kind of person you are and how to work WITH yourself instead of AGAINST yourself. It’s about being kind to yourself and understanding where you are coming from, so you can move forward instead of judging yourself. By dealing with the source issues, we can avoid medicating with food, drugs, entertainment, or shopping and save those things for when they truly serve us. We can find clarity and take positive actions that moves us forward.
Our coaching process has supported clients in everything from pain recovery, life transitions and exercise, to discovering the right nutrition for their body. By working with a coach in person or long distance, you open yourself to becoming the person you’ve always dreamed of while having someone empower you with the tools, beliefs and process to do so. New success evolves from meeting you where you are so you can head for where you want to go.
What you eat and how it affects your body is different for each person. Some of us are from warmer parts of the world, others from colder parts. The food our ancestors ate and digested are different. Taking into account, not just what science and genetics tells us, but also how we feel after we eat different foods, are important factors in long-term nutrition compliance. Once you have an idea of when your body thrives, designing a strategy that works is the next step. Nutrition Coaching is about honoring your body and yourself and integrating ideal choices with your day-to-day schedule, so that you can see results in the way you look and feel.
Nutrition Coaching is for you if:
Success is wanting what you get. It’s not just the outcome, it’s the feeling you have during and after. Performance Coaching is about the generating the motivation to perform a behavior that excites you. It’s not about pep talks or high fives, but balancing internal and external motivators by understanding the conversation around the topic. Your relationship with yourself determines what you will do, what you won’t do, and how you will feel about both of those.
Performance Coaching Is for you if:
I had my first panic attack when my twins were two years old. They were in the backseat when, suddenly, I felt like I was having a heart attack and drove to the ER. The attacks never stopped coming. For more than six years, they came on so bad that I couldn’t be around people and could barely take care of my 8 kids. I almost lived in hermit mode afraid of my panic rising up from being awkward or scared. I saw 5 doctors including a neurologist, physical therapists, gynecologist, regular doctors...
I'm sending this to say thank you for all the work you've done for me. When I first came to you, I was coming just to get trained and to work out. I knew I had physical limitations and pain in my body but our assessment really showed me how I could be working out better without these problems. We started working not just on my fitness but my health...
Working with Coach Melissa on overcoming fear in my body has completely changed my life. After severe spinal strain, I was afraid to move again and trust anyone, although I knew I needed to move forward in my life because I couldn’t continue feeling so down. She taught me about inflammatory and anti-inflammatory foods and provided the encourageme...
The coaching work I did with Isaac allowed me to see my life in a different way and clarify what I’m working towards and what I want whether, it’s fitness, my life, or the bigger picture. I have been to therapy, talk therapy, and couple therapy before, and never found it particularly helpful. The change and progress and journey from the healing...
