I own a fitness company with two studios in Maryland. After training clients in fitness for six years, I realized nutrition was the missing link for helping them achieve optimal health. I was looking at [a competitor program], but then heard about health coaching through Chris’s podcast. I previously thought health coaching was too touchy feely or esoteric – not clinical enough. But after listening to Chris’s vision for transforming health care through health coaching, and already experiencing the challenge of affecting behavior change in my client community, I took the leap and signed up for ADAPT. I’m grateful I did. It’s more than I could have imagined, changing my perspective on my own life, along with how to drill into change within my client community.
I thought I was supposed to have all the answers, and took it very personally when clients weren’t successful in our studio-wide nutrition challenges. My mindset has now shifted to helping clients realize their own power rather than look to me for the solutions to their problems.
