Why Do I Need A Coach?

I’ve seen how powerful having a coach can be in my own life. It wasn’t until my late 20s that I started investing in coaching and it made all the difference in the success of my efforts. You can see the physical progress in the photos, but I had just as much (if not more) results mentally, relationally, spiritually, emotionally, and financially as a result of coaching.

I want you to imagine yourself five years from now…

There’s two different paths with two different outcomes. One finds you happy, in good health, financially free, growing towards your goals, and meaningfully serving and contributing to the lives of those around you. The other finds you right where you currently are—or worse yet, struggling with your health, relationships, finances, and no closer to the goals you have for your life.

How many times have you “started again” only to find yourself unable to stick with changing your habits once and for all?

Do you find yourself frustrated by trying to find time for healthy eating and physical activity amidst an already packed schedule?

Are you confused about what plan of attack to take towards reaching your goals?

Have you struggled with a dieters mentality, or finding a type of exercise that you enjoy?

Do you want to gain traction over your financial state, but can’t seem to break spending habits or don’t know how to approach paying off debt?

Are you discouraged by the lack of growth you see in your life, spiritually, relationally, personally, or professionally?

Again, I want you picture yourself in each of these two alternate futures. One if you continue down the same path, and the other if you can finally tackle some of these seemingly simple healthy habits once and for all.

I have found one thing to make the difference in these two alternate outcomes. It is surprisingly less complicated than you might think. It is going to work on small habits and tiny changes, which when compounded over time, create a massive difference over time.

Don’t believe me?

8 years ago, I was 6 figures in debt, desperately trying to find success at work, procrastinating on almost every chore imaginable, struggling in my first year of marriage, making terrible food choices, going through the motions in my faith walk, and had no desire to exercise on a consistent basis. I just didn’t believe I could ever change. I’d tried so many times and could make it work for a brief amount of time, but slowly found myself drifting back into my old habits each and every time. This wasn’t something that was happening on a conscious level, but conscious or not, I had accumulated quite the amount of convincing evidence as proof of why I would never change. Everything changed when I implemented just one habit consistently. That habit gave me a small win. It served as proof that I was actually capable of growth and change. The confidence that came from achieving one small win spilled over into all the other areas of my life in the way I never could’ve imagined. I did not know it at the time, but picking up the hobby of weight lifting at the gym (instead of inconsistent dabbing in cardio which I dreaded) completely changed the trajectory of my life. Over the last 8 years, I have paid off 6 figures of debt, have adopted a healthy mindset towards food, actually enjoy working out, and find myself continuing to thirst for growth and knowledge. The one thing that made all the difference was having a mentor. Through a series of small wins I started to believe that change was actually possible, and so I kept with the difficult things, until the change actually happened. From there on I was hooked.

Why coaching matters.

There’s an overwhelming amount of information floating around on the internet these days. It’s hard to know who you can trust. We all know that information is not useful unless there’s follow through with implementation. I know you are intelligent. I know you are capable. I know you have information. I also know that’s not enough. If you could do this alone, you would have done so already. I have seen the best results (both personally and in others) come when someone invests in themselves both financially and with taking a leap and outsourcing their sticking points to a coach. Regardless of where you are at in your journey, there is always someone who is further along and can help you navigate things more quickly than if you tried to do so alone. Trust me. I’ve spent thousands in mentors and coaching in the last 2 years alone, and I don’t regret having spent a single penny of those thousands. If anything, the value I have received was worth even more than what I invested.

Besides having walked through my own set of struggles in pursuit of physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial transformation before finally getting headed in the right direction on my health journey, I have also pursued a deep dive into further education and for the purpose of my own continued growth and growth of others.

What you need is someone who has not only walked through the struggles personally, but who is also well-informed and committed to ongoing study. I hold a Masters in public health and have almost 10 years of experience practicing medicine as a Physician Assistant. Prior to that, I earned my bachelor’s degree in nutrition and food science/dietetics. I have worked as a nutrition educator with the state of Florida, and planned on entering into a dietetic internship, before learning I had been excepted to PA school. I chose that route so that I could ultimately focus on health from a more holistic view.

I hold 3 specialty certifications through Metabolic Effect in hormonal health fat loss. I have also completed their as group and personal training courses which certify in the specialty of Rest-Based-Training.

I initially chose nutrition as my area of study because personal interest in wanting to learn more about how to apply it to my own life. I decided to become a Physician Assistant because I wanted to expand to include a more holistic approach to helping others become and stay healthy. After practicing medicine for almost 10 years, I realized that there is much more to health than the “medical” side of things… There’s even more to it than the additional layers of nutrition and exercise. You cannot separate the various aspects of your being spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, relational) from one another. They all serve one another either positively or negatively. Going to work on any one area will start to spill over in the other areas. Let this encourage you that you don’t have to attack everything all at once in order to accomplish all the goals you have across all of these areas. We just need to pick one and get started today! I believe that my personal history and educational background make me uniquely qualified to help others become the best version of themselves inside and out.
