"In late winter I realized it was time for me to get healthy. For me, that meant being limber, to move faster with my five year-old, and to shed weight I had been hanging on to for decades. I started to search for someone to help me. Not a personal trainer, but a health coach. Someone that could understand how stuck my brain was, riddled with shame, unhealthy thoughts, and most of all, fear. After poking around online for a week I gave up. A few days later I was introduced to Kelly. She told me what she did and I said, “I need you.” I have a strong gut intuition, and something felt right about Kelly. We met two days later.
Prior to working with Kelly, I had created a story that prevented me from taking any action when it came to getting healthy. “I don’t even know where to start.” “I’m scared I’ll have to give up too much.” “It’s not going to work.” “What if I fail.”
But, I started meeting with Kelly on a weekly basis. She assured me I could shift my mindset and be successful. She educated me, challenged my thoughts, re-framed my thinking, and highlighted what I was capable of. She encouraged me to focus on my successes for the week, debunking the myths I had created. I started to experience results right away. The first was increased energy. I made a few food modifications and no longer felt the dreaded “3pm slump.” I started moving more each day and felt confident.
In a month I was down a pants size. I was shocked at how simple it was to lose weight right away. When it came time to plant my vegetable garden, I was more limber and didn’t get tired from the up and down and moving all over the yard. I was stronger and happier than I had been in ages.
I am so grateful I found Kelly. She has come to be my “Health Therapist.” Working with her is perfect for someone who needs a shift in perspective, to be challenged mentally and physically, and who wants to lead a healthier, fulfilling life."
