Who could not use extra help to cheer us on when we need it the most?
As a Mindfulness Life Coach, I am here to help you to get that goal off of your wish list while implementing healthy habits step by step with mindfulness in mind. Learning to enjoy the process creates a flow for a healthy mindset towards any goals you wish to accomplish. Having a coach to track your progress and motivate you to the next step, is a powerful accountability tool.
The purpose of Mindfulness Wellness Coaching with a sports-applied mindset and strategy is to facilitate focus on the task at hand leading to setting clear intentions daily to reach your envisioned goals. It is important to know and understand your WHY to create an experience that allows optimal physical and mental well-being in the process of developing actions in alignment with healthy habits. Otherwise, it feels like doing another “chore”. Our services may address specific personal projects, life balance, developing physical activity & mindfulness practices, healthy eating, and other areas. Mindfulness Wellness Coaching (Mindfulness Life Coach) utilizes personal strategic planning, values clarification, brainstorming, motivational coaching, accountability, and other coaching and techniques.

I'm excited to take my passion for running and over 10 years of continuous learning about this sport by sharing these experiences through coaching! As a running coach, my goal is to provide each athlete with a unique training plan focusing on strength and adaptability while applying specific strategies with a holistic approach.
The first step to incorporate intentional running into your lifestyle is to know and understand your WHY. Secondly, hire a running coach to develop accountability and consistency. Last and not least, DO THE WORK!
The athlete must know their WHY. The athlete and the coach must understand the value of communication for progress to take place. It is also important that the running coach can empathize and relate to the athlete’s running journey, seasonal fitness, and life challenges. It takes time and a lot of hard work to conquer the distance and the desired goal time.
A training plan is not a one-size-fits-all, and a mindful running coach will work and design a training plan valuing periodization (12 weeks of foundation building) specifically for the athlete’s current fitness, goals, and needs to best succeed while implementing a holistic approach.
