WHAT CAN I OFFER YOU AS YOUR CHP HEALTH COACH?
I have experience in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and in hospital-based wellness programs. I enjoy creating exercise programs that are individually tailored to each client based upon their health history and their personal goals. I like to help my clients boost their sense of well-being and confidence through exercise. I also enjoy being a motivator and assisting my client to become more self-motivated.
WHAT DO I LIKE BEST ABOUT BEING A SUCCESSFUL HEALTH COACH?
I like watching people succeed and helping them understand it’s the little things that add up to the bigger picture and overall success of their goals. I like teaching others that it’s okay to have a setback; it happens to all of us. You just must keep moving forward and stay focused. I enjoy teaching clients that they are a priority! When they are taking care of themselves, they feel better, have more energy and are more in charge of their bodies and lives. Watching others live a fuller, happier life is what I’m here for.

MY NUTRITION ADVICE
I enjoy cooking and eating at home because I know what I am eating and it’s cheaper! I can also control my portions more because I make my own plate. I don’t feel guilty when I don’t clean my plate at home because I always take my leftovers for lunch the next day.
Everyone has different interests or passions when it comes to exercise. I tell each of my participants to find something that they enjoy and stick with it. What may work for one person, does not necessarily work for another. If you enjoy walking, find a buddy or family member to walk with or take your dog. If you enjoy socialization, join an aerobics class. Find an activity that you love and one that fits into your schedule so that you are more likely to make it part of your daily routine. My current fitness routine is walking my two dogs, strolling Burke, and swimming during the summer time!
