Why do I need a health coach?

Many people know what to do to be healthy. However, they struggle with follow through or lose weight quickly only to rebound.
A health coach utilizes behavior change so the fitness and health goals are successfully attained but more importantly, sustained!
A health coach provides guidelines, education, and accountability to help clients reach their full health potential.

Do you offer meal plans?

I do not offer meal plans.  I use a macro-based approach so I can educate you on how to make healthy choices incorporating protein, carbs, and fats and micronutrients. From there you can create your own meal plan if you want!
That being said, I can help you plan out meals using your macros! 

Do you offer a discount for family clients or referrals?

Yes! If someone in your household also wants coaching services, you will get a 10% discount.
Referrals that lead to a new client signing up for any length of program will earn you  10% off your next package purchase. Subsequent referrals will lead to an additional 10% off future packages. Discounts cannot be combined; 10% is the max that will be honored for package purchase. Family discount is 10% per household. 

I want to lose weight and gain muscle. Can I do this at the same time?

This is called body recomposition. Yes it is possible to do if you are one of the following people:
An untrained individual (or newbie to the gym).
Someone that has not been following a structured program.
Someone returning to weight training after a prolonged hiatus.

I will help you reach your goals whatever they may be! 

Can I do just training or just nutrition program with you?

I offer a whole body approach to health, which includes training, nutrition, and mindset.
Just working out or just changing your nutrition habits may not get you the best results possible! If you are anxious about changing your eating habits or don't think that training is necessary (or worried that lifting weights will make you "bulky"--it won't!) I will work with you to make sure we get you on a plan that is attainable and realistic.
I will work with you one on one, be that accountability you need, and cater things just to your goals!
If you already have a trainer or you are following a nutrition plan that works for you, I can customize a plan for you that is either nutrition only or training only!

How do I know if a health coach is right for my goals?

I offer a free phone consult to all prospective clients. I would not recommend hiring any health coach without speaking to him/her before signing up!  This is a way to get to know each other and see if it is a good fit!  I work with all people, including kids!

What are the payment policies and options?

I currently offer 12, 16, and 24 and 52 week programs.
Payments are due in full via Venmo or PayPal before program delivery. Once we do our consult call, and we agree to work with each other, I will get you your plans within 3 days (perhaps sooner if you are already logging your food). Payment is due before this time and Day 1 of your program commences on the day your plans are sent.
No refunds are given but you can freeze your plan 1x per year if situations arise. 

I have never tracked my food or macros and it seems overwhelming!

If you are hesitant or new to tracking, but have a fat loss/muscle gain/maintenance goal, tracking your intake really is the only way to be able to measure progress!  If you are new to it, it will become easier!
You cannot manipulate what you cannot measure!
Tracking macronutrients (protein, carbs, and fats) is more than just tracking calories, because you are able to see what is in your foods and you will learn how certain things (protein and fiber for example) can help you reach your goals! 

My clients ask me questions all the time about food recommendations, and I give you guidelines on how to plan balanced meals and order at restaurants, etc.
Tracking is not intended to do for the rest of your life--you will learn portion sizes and what works best for you body and after time you won't have to track! 

How do you coach online clients?

I use an app (at no extra cost to you) that houses everything from your training, to progress, two way messaging, goals, etc.  It is pretty cool!
