Hi there - I'm glad you stopped by.
If you are ready for change and want to take charge of your health let's chat. If not, it's just not the right time and that's ok.......
Beginning today you can embark on a new journey and take charge of your own health and wellness. You have the opportunity to live the life you dreamed, the life you know you were meant to live. If you're ready, I'm here to help!
I'm coach Connie a board-certified integrative nutrition health coach, Reiki Master, and professional athlete on the USA Canoe and Kayak Team. I'm passionate about healthy food and overall fitness and believe food is medicine that provides us a healthy vibrant living. I don't believe good health is defined by a scale or dress size.
"My definition of good health is having the ability to live your life to the fullest with purpose every single day without poor health holding you back!"
Don't Let Poor Health
Be Your Prison
I have seen too many people suffer from poor health, which has kept them from doing what they love. In fact, most times just getting up and leaving the house is too much. POOR HEALTH LEAVES YOU FEELING MISERABLE, depressed, hopeless, and insignificant. It also effects your skin, eyes, hair, and mental capacity to think clearly. What's worse you're not alone in your suffering. Everyone around sees what's happening and this has a negative influence on them. They feel helpless, unable to do anything and sometimes will even resort to taking the same path as you.
I'm here to tell you today you can STOP THIS MADNESS! You can take control one step at a time without crazy fad diets and get back your GOOD HEALTH! This isn't a quick fix and it's going to be hard but I'm here to help! Do you want to regain energy, get a new zest for life, have a good nights sleep, lose weight and get rid of brain fog WITHOUT DIETING?
It's not a dream, it's for real and I help people JUST LIKE YOU TAKE-BACK THEIR LIFE with Xtreme-Measures Fit4Life.
When I'm not working as a health coach, I'm paddling. You see, 2 years after losing weight I tried out and made the USA National Canoe and Kayak team. Now, do you believe dreams can come true? I also love adventure travel and have seen the world and experienced many different cultures. I believe in living life to the fullest and don't want poor health to get in the way of that happening!
As your coach I work with you to help identify your goals and define the steps and tools to achieve permanent change. We put a plan in place to monitor progress and talk. We talk a lot about how things are progressing, where you have challenges, and learn what adjustments may be needed along the way. Change is inevitable so your plan is designed with flexibility. I believe in bio-individuality and that one mans food is another's poison. We are ALL DIFFERENT and your plan will be unique for your needs. I also run monthly food and fitness challenges that help with accountability. These are tons of fun and you get to know people doing the same thing as you. It's a great way to get started with me to learn how I roll!
Over the past 20 years I have designed and run successful large multi-million dollar programs for fortune 100 companies. And similar to these programs I have designed the FIT4Life products for you. FIT4Life encompasses a series of programs for Sound Mind, Strong Body, and Peaceful Soul with the common thread of ease, support, and sustainability for life long change.
OUR RELATIONSHIP IS A PARTNERSHIP
As your coach I will hold you accountable to goals and ensure you have the knowledge and tools available to achieve them. I will provide education and support and be there to cheer you on or pick you up when you fall. This is a partnership and a life changing commitment for both of us. We are in this together.
MY CREDENTIALS AND APPROACH
I am a board certified integrative nutrition health coach and received my training from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition the largest health coach school in the world. During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world's top health and wellness experts.
My teachers included the Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University's Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with you to help you make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health.
My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, or proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions of good and bad foods. Instead, I work with you to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding. Together we'll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together you'll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, life balance, and overall health.
