What if you could lose weight, start eating better or commit to exercising and be encouraged by your coach every single day! This is theKORS Coaching.
How does theKORS Process Work?
Close your eyes, and think about: What would you change about yourself specifically your health, at this very moment? Would you like to lose weight, start exercising or maybe eat out less often? You start by sharing this wonderful vision with me, your coach.
What happens next? Do you give me specific directions to follow like a meal and exercise plan?
On theKORS, you are not signing up for a one-size-fits-all plan, as your health needs and desires are not the same as the next person’s. If you are looking for a basic meal or exercise plan, there are plenty of options available to you through a simple Google search.
So, then what do we do?
We begin to examine your lifestyle, peeling back the layers of the onion. We uncover specific behaviors you wish to engage in AND we discuss habits you feel may not be serving you well.
Next, we get down to business in a goal setting strategy session. If you decide to start going to the gym 3x a week, we picture just how and when this will happen and we discuss any potential barriers that may come up.
At our next session you share whether you were able to accomplish part or all of your goals. Your journey will likely ebb and flow week by week as we uncover what works for you, and this keeps the process fun and new!
I tend to do well the first few days of a program then I slowly fall off.
I love this part of my coaching. First of all, you are not alone, but if this happens or even if you have a simple question, you need not wait until our next session. You simply reach out to me, and I will respond to you within 24 hrs. In fact, we connect every single day! This continual support and accountability keep us dialed in.
I don’t want to be deprived. I dread getting started.
Please know that uncovering areas of your diet to improve, gently beginning to exercise or claiming better health can truly be a joyful experience! Taking the plunge can be the hardest part. After that, be really excited!

What is Health Coaching?
“Integrative Health Coaching empowers you to make lasting health behavior changes that are the cornerstones of lifelong well-being. It bridges the gap between medical recommendations and your abilities to successfully implement those recommendations into your complex life.” -Duke Integrative Medicine
Back in college, I might have benefited from the support of a health coach. I was an independent young adult who was trying to cover the chaos that was much of my childhood by controlling what I ate. During my sophomore year, I was barely breaking 100 lbs, hitting aerobics and eating just one apple a day on a “good day.” By the time summer break rolled around my ribs were poking out of my back, my hair was falling out, and I couldn’t stop crying.
My mom booked an ‘emergency’ visit to a psychologist where I was diagnosed with an eating disorder. The doctor’s medical recommendation was a 12-week outpatient program that consisted of weekly group meetings. Our group was quite the motley crew of disordered eating, and this mixed bag didn’t quite lend itself to unconditional support. One lady who was obese and struggling with OE (over eating) chastised us anorexics in the group for bemoaning our inability to eat saying “I wish I had their problem.”
Still I attended every group and did my homework: Eat. I passed the program which pleased everyone, the world went on spinning, and everyone went on with their lives. Meanwhile, I was sent back to school out of state feeling no more equipped to face food and feeling fatter than ever.
If anyone did show concern it was with “If you don’t eat, you’ll die” kinds of statements didn’t exactly play to my strengths. With a lack of unconditional support and accountability, it didn’t take long for my bad habits to creep right back in, and for 10 more years, I went on trying to hide my non-eating.
Today at 47 years old, I am happy to say those seasons have passed, and I am truly comfortable with who I am. Of course, life happens and I sometimes slip back into old habits. But overall, I strive for balance between eating well most of the time and allowing for indulgences. Instead of expecting nothing less than grueling workouts from myself every single day, I take plenty of rest or just plain relaxing days.
My decades-long journey to self-acceptance came with many starts and stops and changes along the way; I sometimes wonder whether it might have gone a little faster if I’d had someone like a coach in my corner.
I imagine myself bringing my diagnosis and my Healthy Eating toolbox to a coaching session. I picture my coach encouraging me to create a vision of my healthy future. I see us uncovering my strengths, setting attainable goals and walking side-by-side until I was living that healthy vision.
Today as a health and wellness coach, I get to be that missing link who helps others “…create a climate where positive change can occur, maintain motivation, turn setbacks into progress, and make new beneficial habits to replace the ones eliminated, change will occur.” Michael Arloski, Ph.D., PCC, Professional Certified Coach and a Certified Wellness Practitioner.
As a health coach, I get to do this in part by drawing from my own past experiences. So for this, I wouldn't change a thing.
