How does one-to-one Coaching work?
The first step is for us to have a discovery call, which we can do over the phone, via Skype, Zoom, WeChat or WhatsApp. This 30 minute, free consultation helps us both decide if we will work well together. Click here to book the appointment:
If we decide to go forward, we’ll then agree on coaching package that is best for YOU.

AND HERE IS FEEDBACK FROM MY LOVELY CLIENTS…
1. What were your biggest INSIGHTS from our time together?
Learning a new way of eating and looking at macronutrients in food as a means to fuel the body in specific ways. Gone are the days of eating with emotion, instead now are the days of eating with purpose....mostly!
2. What were your most impactful RESULTS?
Weight loss and sustained energy throughout a day without the typical 3pm crash.
3. What HABITS are you going to take away with you?
A primal way of eating most of the time, and continued purposeful movement to build muscle and lose fat.
4. Did you achieve the GOALS you were looking for?
I still have a little ways to go to achieve the aggressive body goals I’ve set for myself, but it’s clear that this lifestyle will achieve those results over time by doing what I’m doing now.
5. What specific part of the program did you like best?
I enjoyed being able to talk openly about what my body goals are and how to achieve them. What some may consider vanity in fact has long lasting health benefits. And of course the result of looking good and feeling confident, can’t be argued with!
6. Is there any other feedback that you would like to add?
I had a lot of fun chatting with you! I have always enjoyed cooking and of course eating. This way of eating has added to my enjoyment of food by gaining knowledge about how food effects the body. It’s had some changes in how I cook and eat, but i don’t consider it a sacrifice and greatly enjoy my new habits and of course feel great! I’ll still enjoy the occasional carbohydrate treat, but with greater conscience of the decision to do so, and the resulting effect on the body.
