Diane's Unique Approach

  Why a Health Coach?

 After the diabetes diagnosis, I started to track everything I ate, and carefully monitored carbohydrates. I joined an online diet and healthy living community, attended diabetes education classes and learned everything I could about living with my conditions, and improving my health.

I stretched myself out of my comfort zone and signed up for Zumba classes and began a weight training program in addition to walking and using an elliptical trainer and vertical climber at home.  

The important thing to remember is that you're never too old to make the small, manageable lifestyle changes that bring you to your health and fitness goals.  If not now, when?

  Why a Health Coach?

When I was able to improve my health to the point that my doctor actually told me he was proud of me, I knew I could help others improve too! 

I believe whole, clean food and exercise is the best medicine!  In addition to keeping my blood sugar levels stable, regular exercise in the form of weight training and cardio helps me manage weight and Fibromyalgia.

It took a lot to convince me that exercise would help with Fibromyalgia symptoms.  It hurt to exercise and besides, I was always so tired!  Now I’m a believer!  I want to reach out to everyone suffering from excess weight, fibromyalgia, diabetes, and other health concerns and assure them that if I can do it, anyone can do it.

I especially love that helping transform others enables me to transform as well.  That synergy is a beautiful thing!
