Health Coach

Hi I’m Colette! I have had a passion for health, wellness and fitness since my teenage years. I am a vibrant, energetic leader who truly wants to support others to lead a life that incorporates every aspect of a healthy lifestyle.

I recently completed a 32 year “passion career” with the YMCA of Medicine Hat. My many years with the YMCA made a significant difference on our YMCA membership.

I currently hold a B.A. in Physed, a Diploma in Recreation Management/ Diploma in Career Development/Counselling and most recently a Certificate in Health and Wellness Coaching from Dr Sears Wellness Institute. I love to learn, so am always taking new up to date courses from Clean Eating Academy, Can fit Pro and AFLCA to name a few.

Along with my degree, diploma and certificate I am also a 35 year AFLCA/YMCA Fitness Instructor with specialty certification in the following:  Mossa Group ride, Mossa Centergy (Yoga,pilates combo), Mossa Core,(shoulders to hips) spinfit, aquafit, spin & core, abs & core , step & sculpt, meditation, yoga, fusion fitness training, and weight training programs.

I am a “cardio junky” with a passion for running that began back in High School, continuing on to College and University track teams. I have completed many 10 KM, half and full marathons and recently triathlons. I love keeping fit daily with running, outdoor/indoor riding, swimming, teaching fitness classes and eating whole real food. I have and always will be deeply committed to a healthy lifestyle of wellness, balance, good nutrition and fitness. I strive every day to “Live Younger Longer”(LYL) and have turned that saying into coaching.

As a Health and Wellness Coach my highest priority is to continue to support and create that positive, permanent, healthy, lifestyle change through: L= Lifestyle,    E= Eating, A=Attitude, N=Nutrition: (LEAN) as we strive to “Live Younger Longer”.

I offer an easy, energizing approach for individuals thru specialized step-by-step, one-on-one support and motivation to become your BEST selves.

In addition to my one on one coach/individual sessions,

I also offer separate sessions for:

Pantry Makeover — 1 hour

Smart Shopping Trip — 1 ½ – 2 hours

Goal Setting/De Stress options — 1 hour

Individual Exercise Program/or Special Event Training — hours vary

With my many years of education and experience, combined with support, motivation, eating clean whole foods, and a regular fitness program, you will develop a routine for a positive, permanent healthy lifestyle. I know a combined lifestyle of exercise, attitude and nutrition will make a difference.  My lifestyle started back in my teens, so I am living proof that it works. People say that I am high energy and very highly motivating, as a coach I would love to walk with you every step of the way to achieve the body you desire.

As well, I also offer it in a Group Workshop Setting.

Through personal assistance, education, goal setting and tool kit designing for individuals/groups, my goal is to help improve your overall mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing using nutrition, wellness and life balance.

 4 workshops for groups/ work setting/ individuals
  • Open Your Internal Pharmacy
  • Making Health Your Hobby
  • Move Waste From Your Waist
  • Live without Pain & Inflammation

The workshops focus on the health of adults through holistic practical science-based nutrition and resources to help bring balance, clarity and wellness for you the individual.
