Low Stress, High Reward Fitness
The most common frustrations I hear from new clients are that they’ve tried everything, but they’re still not seeing the desired results; feeling overwhelmed by so many fitness goals and aspirations, or by life constantly getting in the way of even the most basic fitness aspiration, like just getting started.
I’m sure you can identify with the feeling of never doing enough or like you’ve so many things that you want to do, but all you get is high stress and low reward.
It’s at times like these that you need to become a little more strategic in doing things which hold greater VALUE to you. In other words, they must be purposeful, relevant, doable, fun, and definitely flexible.
But how will you know what these things are?
That’s were coaching comes in. Not the “ra ra” cheer-leader kind; the kind that helps you explore how to go about being more aligned with what actually matters to you – not society, not everyone on Instagram, and not me.
There are two main types of coaching I offer to help you simplify things and move forward:
1. You’re mentally ready for action, but you may need some help refining your goals. My Fitness Essentials Package will work well for you. Just fill in the form below and let me know what’s been challenging you. Then we can arrange a quick strategy call to narrow things down for your training plan, and BOOM, you get your individualised plan within a few days (after completing a quick baseline exercise assessment).
2. Or you really want to be ready for action with a clear plan, but are struggling. Maybe you’re feeling like your life is out of balance. Too many stressors competing for your energy may be leaving health and fitness at the bottom of the pile. But the pressure to “get that done too” is weighing you down nudging you toward doing something. My Pathfinder Coaching Package is designed to address life balance, priorities, ambivalence, and help you be ready for action. Coaching sessions take place weekly or biweekly via phone or Skype to work on clearing the way for better decisions, and onward to action. This coaching isn’t limited to fitness, but whatever is holding you back, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, or physically.
(A third option is to combine Fitness Essentials with weekly, biweekly, or monthly coaching calls.)
What can you expect from me as your coach?
As your coach I am there to get to know what matters to you. It may not even be workouts you want, you may want help addressing consistency or getting better work/life balance, or just feeling better about yourself.
During our initial conversation we’ll discuss what you want to get from your journey, including your goals, what you’ve tried in the past, your individual challenges, what competing priorities you might have, any injuries we may need to work around, and anything else that may help you get more from life and fitness. Then you’ll also have a better idea of what to expect and what level of coaching support would work best for you.
Here’s what some of my past and present clients have to say:
“I just want you to know that you are the best coach EVER. Honestly, I have been keen to work with you since I discovered myomytv and you have not let me down at all. The workouts, as per your usual standard, are fun, challenging and brilliantly guided. Even as slack as I have been, I’ve made amazing progress and I will absolutely get to the pull up before too long.” ~ Heidi
“I’ve gained stength, I’ve noticed an improvement in my body’s shape and she helped me achieve my first pull-up at 42! Most importantly I enjoy my workouts because she listens to me and designs workouts that fit my lifestyle.” ~ Claudia A., Florida USA
“I felt that she really listened and understood my goals in all areas of my life. On the physical side of things she created an awesome training plan for me in which I have gotten stronger and am well on my way to hitting all my goals! On the personal side of things Marianne has helped me work through some tough areas in my life and I feel so much happier and satisfied with where I’m at. She is a truly great coach and mentor. Highly recommend!” ~ Chrysta H., Texas USA
“Marianne is an excellent coach/personal trainer. She adapted a programme to suit me…a 56yr ol woman, who thought Kettlebells and fitness programmes were out of the question…” ~ Phyllis McAuley, from the UK.
“Coach Marianne has been training me for over three years. She took a banged up 50 yr old and made him feel younger and more confident. She is also a genuine, caring person, and a true asset to the fitness industry.” ~ Chris Garcia, from Texas USA
“Marianne has been patient, flexible and very encouraging. She’s helped me to make great strides in my fitness goals. I highly recommend her as a coach!” ~ Laurel P. from California, USA

Applying elements of Wellness and Life coaching, we collaborate on some important steps to finding and walking your best path.
Coaching is all about moving forward and overcoming what’s keeping you in “holding patterns” which can often drain you of joy, peace, and love for life. It’s my job as your coach to provide a warm and open space, asking questions to allow you to freely discover how you’ll live your fullest self so that anything you embark on (like training or eating or a new pursuit) align with your values, strengths, and gifts.
This isn’t all “woo woo” fairy-dust talk; I use evidence-based methods rooted in positive psychology, motivational interviewing and behaviour change literature, along with respect for your autonomy. These methods are designed to evoke your own strengths and resources to help you move forward in areas of your life that have kept you stuck. Basically, I’m not going to tell you what to do by barking orders or trying to save you, but I help guide you to your own (and better) answers by asking questions you might not have asked yourself. Sure, I might offer my wisdom from time to time, but the research is clear: people have better success when they have the chance to determine change for themselves. It has to be right for you and it can’t be rushed.
Calls typically last 45 minutes via phone/skype. While you can go month-to-month, committing to 3-6 months is a worthwhile option (you will also get a discount for committing upfront).
Biweekly calls are valued at: $150/mo
Weekly calls are valued at: $225/mo.
