It’s time to stop replaying the annual stress from dieting and lose the weight ONCE AND FOR ALL.

The expectations, requirements, and stress of the military life are unique.

It takes a different approach to lose weight that takes this into consideration.  A strategy where you can learn to use the military lifestyle to work for you rather than against you.

Dieting This Way Is Exhausting

Many of the women and men I coach are frustrated with the amount of money, time, and energy spent on diets, workout programs, and gym memberships – after trying on-base resources that didn’t help their results last. 

Not only are they short on time, but because of it, they think they should “know better by now” or be farther along than they are,or worse… that wherever they have gotten is as far as they’ll ever get.  

Have You Found Yourself...

  • Not feeling completely confident in your body, in uniform, or at work?
  • Wanting to love eating what your body needs for fuel but you don’t know how to make that change without deprivation or relying on willpower?
  • Wanting to eat healthy food and lose weight, but hunger and work schedules are inconveniently distracting and bothersome, so you end up putting your needs to the side?
  • Resenting deployments, out-of-town trainings and events, work lunches, holiday parties, and time spent with friends and family because it’s difficult to stay on track?
  • Desiring to stop overeating and eat only what your body needs to perform beautifully, but quitting right before you know you’re about to reach a new level, almost like clockwork?
  • Judging your body for not “being within standards” and feeling ashamed for not “looking the part”?
  • Always thinking about food and what the right food to eat is, when to eat, how much to eat… which is mentally exhausting and drains your motivation and good intentions throughout the day?
  • Anticipating and experiencing the anxiety and nervousness about whether or not you’ve lost enough weight for the fitness test weigh-ins?
  • Unsure of how to pass the fitness tests without killing yourself in the gym or using hope and willpower as you under-eat in order to avoid being tape measured or being too close to the max allowed weight for a woman or man of your age and height?
We’re always trying to reach and maintain certain standards, but oftentimes we fall short… and that sense of guilt that accompanies unmet expectations can affect other areas of our life.

I Help You Find The Way That WORKS

My coaching program is the perfect solution for the busy and ambitious military woman or man.  I help my clients overcome the self-doubt and stress they experience as they navigate their life in the military, finding time to lose weight on-duty and off-duty, and trying their best to keep the weight from coming back so as not to repeat the process all over again.

How Does It Work?

I exclusively work one-on-one with military women or men who are serious about their weight loss.

This is not another diet, so I’m not for everyone since I don’t provide a generic quick fix.

There are many ways to lose weight in the military. But as equal as we all are in the eyes of Uncle Sam, in the end, only one way will truly work… the one that’s individualized and suited just for you.

Together, through private coaching calls and direct online access to me throughout the week, we will design a customized protocol that is adapted to your personal health goals and your daily challenges – in uniform and out of uniform.  There is no shame or judgement here.

What if you had a coach who understands the physical science and the mental strategies behind weight loss who is fully aware of your daily military duties, responsibilities, and requirements, and who is expertly equipped to effectively handle your mental blocks and emotional struggles?

This is for you.

As a Life Coach, Weight Coach and Fitness Coach, I understand the physiological and cognitive science of the changes that happen in your body and in your mind during weight loss. As a former Active Duty servicemember now in the Reserves, I understand the expectations, culture, and pressures of being a member in the military who wants to succeed at her job.

After working with me, you will:

  • Finally have the answers to your personal weight problems
  • Actually have a way to stay ahead of the game
  • No longer feel the need to starve yourself or try another restrictive or unrealistic diet, whether for the fitness tests or for life events, like weddings, vacations, or weekend getaways
  • Learn the secret to not want to want food that doesn’t help you lose weight or stay in shape
  • Love to eat what your body needs for fuel without feeling deprived
  • Understand why you may choose food (or alcohol or other vices) to alleviate stress
  • Experience hunger without it bothering you or distracting you while still eating healthily and losing weight
  • Learn how to avoid weight gain or regain whether on deployment or at home
  • Discover how overcoming overeating can help in other areas of your life, like managing stress and relationships
  • Approach stressful situations with true self-confidence rather than self-doubt and overwhelm
  • Trust yourself around food – whether alone or with company
  • Learn how your brain works for you and against you and how you can coach yourself as new challenges come up at work, throughout your day, and in your life

We will have looked at every area of your life and you’ll feel stronger, be bolder and more self-assured than ever before.  You won’t feel ashamed or embarrassed about standing in line to be tape measured because you will no longer be over your max weight.  You won’t be overeating because you’ll know the difference between hunger and desire.  You will feel great in every uniform and feel like the confident leader you’ve always wanted to be.

This is the kind of work that makes results last.

Deciding to honor your commitments to yourself and being courageous about your decision is where all change begins. 

Are you ready?

TESTIMONIALS

There is no better time for coaching than NOW.

Still not sure? 

This is what my clients tell me.

N.J., EDO, United States Navy

How would you explain my services (and coaching) to a friend?

This was my first-time using life coaching. Nicole has you work answer questions prior to every session from thoughts, feelings, food, etc. Then during each session, she reviews your answers and unlocks doors that may have been holding you back.

How did you come to choose me as your Life Coach?

I’ve known Nicole for over 15 years and watched her transform her body. I thought if she could do this while serving in the military, I have no excuse to take control of my body.

What were your fitness and health goals when you contacted me?

I wanted to lose weight. I slowly gained 10lbs over the course of a year. I regularly went to HIIT classes 3-4 a week, but I kept gaining weight.  

Tell us about what changes you made in just a handful of weeks.

I stopped overeating.

I enjoyed Christmas parties by focusing on food that would nourish my body instead of cookies and starchy food. I had a cookie, but it was after eating lots of protein and veggies and that is ok.

I want that piece of chocolate but it’s not going to help me reach my goal, so I don’t eat it.

Would you recommend my services? If so, why?

Yes, Nicole helped me through many emotional and bad habits involving food. I stopped overeating and learned the importance of preparing food to nourish my food.

What unique challenges did you face on your journey to understanding how to control your weight? How did those challenges make you feel?

I always left that I had to prepare food to accommodate my fiancé who’s a picky eater. This usually meant I had to sacrifice my own diet. Nicole encouraged me to put my needs first. I let him prepare is own meals when I want to eat fish or a salad for dinner. He still eats regardless of my meal and sometimes we even eat the same meal. I made spaghetti squash last week and he enjoyed it.

When you first considered Life Coaching, what were your concerns?

I thought you were going to put me a strict diet

What was the hardest part of this journey?

Learning to not feel guilty about a poor food decision

What is the best part about having me as your Life Coach, Weight Coach and Fitness Coach?

Working with a nonjudgmental friend and having a new perspective on food.

S.G. -Engineering Duty Officer, U.S. Navy

How would you explain my services (and coaching) to a friend?

Nicole uses CBT to coach you towards your goals, or to combat your struggles that keep you from your goals.

How did you come to choose me as your Life Coach?

She offered, and I wasn’t getting where I wanted to be.

What were your fitness and health goals when you contacted me?

To lose 10 pounds, to gain control over food, exercise and self-care.

Tell us about what changes you made in just a handful of weeks.

I started to journal.

I made more flexible options in my fitness habits.

I successfully reduced the amount of flour and sugar in my diet.

What is the best part about having me as your Life Coach, Weight Coach and Fitness Coach?

Nicole totally gets my walk as a military officer. Her advice is applicable and relevant… I wouldn’t expect that common thread from a Life Coach who hasn’t served.

Would you recommend my services? If so, why?

Yes! Nicole provides thoughtful insight to overcoming roadblocks.

What unique challenges did you face on your journey to understanding how to control your weight? How did those challenges make you feel?

Mostly time management and self-prioritization. I always felt like I was flailing, rather than thriving.

When you first considered Life Coaching, what were your concerns?

I was worried about the discomfort of opening myself (my flaws) up to someone. I was also concerned about the touchy-feely aspect of life coaching as I perceived it at the time. But CBT is pretty pragmatic. I was surprised to find that it was a tool to help me hold myself accountable and change my habits accordingly.

What was the hardest part of this journey?

Identifying my unhealthy hang-ups and doing something about it.

Anything else to add?

Nicole was thoughtful but never hesitated to challenge my assumptions about how my life had to be. I am not in the habit of asking myself, “Is that true? Or is that just a thought?” I’m grateful 🙂

How would you explain my services (and coaching) to a friend?

Amazing! Life changing and result driven.

How did you come to choose me as your Life Coach?

I was working with Nicole through a different program and I saw one of her post about military women and overeating.  I was drawn to her approach regarding food and how we can sabotage ourselves when it comes to food. 

What were your fitness and health goals when you contacted me?

I wanted to lose 20lbs and get toned. 

Tell us about what changes you made in just a handful of weeks.

I learned how to use the CTFAR and not base my worth/feelings on a number. I’m more than a number and I can conquer anything I set my mind to. I’m doing thoughdownloads where I use the CTFAR method to calm myself when I’m anxious/worry or feeling insecure. My relationship with food has improve. I don’t feel the need to eat more than +2. It is okay to leave food on a plate if you are not hungry anymore. I don’t base my fitness gain on the scale rather on how my clothes fit, how much energy I have and how awesome I feel once I’m done with my workouts or when I have all my water intake and meals. 

 I finally understood that it is okay to have feelings and instead of avoiding them, it is okay to feel them and process them. I was constantly thinking about what I “should” or “should not” feel. It was a constant battle where I felt  guilty if i had bad thoughts and unconsciously i was  punishing myself for feeling that way and i will sabotage my diet  because I felt I was doing something wrong and somehow eating more was making me feel better but in reality it was not. I was looking for an excuse or way out not face what I was truly feeling. Nicole helped process my thoughts/feelings and use them to my advantage and transform circumstances into results.  

Would you recommend my services? If so, why?

Yes, I loved her approach to women in the military and the use of the CTFAR method.

What unique challenges did you face on your journey to understanding how to control your weight? How did those challenges make you feel?

I had a love-hate relationship with the scale. I was determined to reach a number and base on that number my feelings/day will go about. If  I lost a pound or half a pound I will be happy and excited and If gain a pound I was miserable and feeling horrible about myself. Her coaching made realized that the scale has no power over me and I have a choice to change my feelings/thoughts. 

When you first considered Life Coaching, what were your concerns?

I was afraid to be judged and vulnerable. 

What was the hardest part of this journey?

One of the hardest parts was to let myself be vulnerable and feel the good and the bad.

What is the best part about having me as your Life Coach, Weight Coach and Fitness Coach?

I felt understood as a military member and I was able to open up and realized that it is okay to live in the moment and have feelings 🙂 because they will help us change our thinking and achieve our goals. I appreciate your charisma and approach in every meeting. Thank you for not giving up on me!! Some conversations where hard because of all the feelings and emotions they carried but you were able to managed them very well and get to the root of the issue by listing  and help me process all the emotions I was feeling.

My time in service, years of knowledge and experience in nutrition & fitness, insights on military requirements & regulations, and expertise as a Life, Weight & Fitness Coach will help you achieve permanent weight loss.

All those times of being confused, tired and stressed with your weight loss struggles as a military leader trying to stay ahead of the game are over.

Don’t let another year of anxiety-filled weight loss and weight regain repeat itself.

Your military job doesn’t get easier.  Life doesn’t get easier.

It’s time to invest in yourself and your mental, emotional and physical health now.

Become the person and leader you’ve always imagined – in the body and with the unapologetic confidence that matches your desires.
