Hi! I'm Christine and I'm a life coach and personal trainer. I believe that true happiness and inner peace is achieved when there is both physical and emotional balance that is created through self care.
As a Certified Life Coach my clear focus is to empower people to tap into their strengths and skills to achieve their overall personal best in life. Clients range from people wanting to adopt positive habits, build self confidence and acknowledge self worth to coping with stress, navigating life transitions, building healthy relationships and understanding the importance of work/life balance.
As a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Sport nutrition specialists and gear cycle instructor, I work with clients of all ages and fitness levels to achieve their goals in physical fitness, health and wellness through exercise and healthy lifestyles. Believe in yourself, invest in yourself & achieve greatness.
What got me to this point here and now? I spent the first half of my life as a senior executive in the fashion industry in NYC so I intimately understand the challenge of balancing personal and professional life.
I struggled with self confidence, experienced anxiety and insecurities. I put so much pressure on being ‘perfect’ (everyone’s version of perfect) that I stopped enjoying life. From the outside I was successfully going through the motions but I was stuck, I lost my passion, I lost my identity and I self medicated which accelerated my steady downward spiral into some dark places in my life.
My drive for perfectionism coupled with my unease and anxiety in not finding it caused me to be a spectator in life and no longer a participant: eventually I pushed so hard I broke. But what came next was a breakthrough. Deep down I knew if I could get out of my own damn way there was an amazing and happy life to live with lessons and wisdom I knew I could share from experience.
I learned how to turn self doubt into self worth, I realized that people are not failures; we may not succeed at everything we try the first go around or even the second but the lessons we learn from each attempt are the gifts we take forward with us.
I honestly believe that being happy is our 'default setting' and I live with a positive mindset each and every day and you can too.
There is no best way to finding your happy, it’s not a one-size-fits all plan BUT there is a best solution for YOU. It starts with taking an honest look at yourself, your life and having that moment of clarity when you realize things need to change.
That’s your window of opportunity! That’s your time to reach out and ask for help and guidance from someone you can trust to empower you. You have the ability to enhance your life. You can achieve your goals, realize your dreams and live the best life you can imagine.
If you’re on a personal quest for self improvement, craving to find the genuine happiness in life that you’ve lost along the way, working on your self confidence, going through a life transition that has a little lost, willing to work on adopting a positive mindset and the positive habits that will back it up, hoping to cope with stress more effectively - maybe by adding a workout into your weekly schedule - whatever you think will get you moving in the right direction, I’m here to be your motivator and your partner in creating the most amazing and happy life imaginable.
